Market stats for Lilburn, September, 2010, indicates that there are 443 properties on the market (as of September 30th). Overall, there is about a 9.8 month supply of properties. Lilburn is actually mid-pack among cities in Gwinnett County. Absorption Rates had been improving since March, until September. In fact, in March there was 15.3 months of inventory.
In the sub-$200k arena, there are 273 listings, with about an 7.7 month supply. This represents most of the sales in the market area, and reflects the same improvement in inventory levels, continuously since March. And, one other thing to keep in mind is that sales were strong compared to September 2009 (32 v 25).
Between $200k and $400k, there are 146 listings for sale, and about 19 months of supply. This segment has also been getting stronger each month since March, until this month. There were only 2 sales in September 2010, compared to 11 last year.
From $400k to $600k, there are 20 homes on the market. The absorption rate is around 15 months. There was one more sale in September 2010 (1) v September 2009 (0) as this year, but there were no sales in this segment in May, June or July this year. Last summer was much stronger overall. With just a few sales, just one or two can make a huge difference.
Above $600k, there are 4 listings, but too few sales to have any sort of reliable number of months of inventory. There has been one sale in the last three months, but prior, there had only been a few other sales in 2010 (January, March and August). One of the listings is above $800k, and there is no market activity in the last 12 months for that range…
