ATLANTA GA - December 2010 Real Estate Market vs December 2009

I am trying a different approach for the month of December. The charts in this report I have created through Trendgraphix, Inc. This will enable you to not only see the Atlanta real estate market activity for December 2010 vs. December 2009 but it will also allow you to see the trending that has taken place throughout 2010. 

And the voices are many as we jump start 2011. And, they are not necessarily singing in unison - no big surprise! I have decided it is like looking into a crystal ball. There are so many facets which will play into fueling the recovery of the housing market so it makes sense predictions are just that....predictions! And, each real estate market is different and every market has been impacted differently.

According to Dan Forsman, CEO of Prudential Gerogia Realty, Atlanta real estate prices did not go up like Florida or Arizona. We did not see a flood of speculators buying properties.  But instead the Atlanta market has been hampered by the new homes bubble, large number of foreclosures and short sales and a reduction of buying activity.  The Atlanta market had consistently been at the top of the list for the new homes market - topping in 2006. Smart Numbers (Marietta GA) noted that the new homes market was headed for trouble in the spring of 2006 due to the increse of lot costs thus causing new home pricing to start rising quickly while builders margins were shrinking. Plus the easy qualifying for buyers and down payment assistance programs allowed buyers to keep paying these higher prices. Thus, the bubble continued to build. As the market slowed, aggressive pricing from resales and foreclosures made it difficult for builders to compete. By 2009 new home starts were down over 80% from peak levels. Realty Trac projected Georgia ranked 7th in the nation for foreclosures; with pre-foreclosures running around 10,000 month average with more to come. What we can all agree upon is: "There is no place but up..."  

What I can tell you driving around my market area of Gwinnett, Forsyth, Hall and Fulton counties....I am seeing new construction starts. Who would have thought. No doubt these starts are NOT vigorous. It is evident that the builders are stepping lightly and cautiously. One community I was in today, the Builder, Acadia Homes , has bought the lots left by Bowen Homes. There are two inventory homes completed with no starts coming out of the ground. And, as I understand from a homeowner, the homes have been completed for two months.  I see the same process with Ryland Homes. They have several communities - about 14 communities - in the metro area. But they also are building slowly and cautiously. Beazer Homes is also another one with new starts in the area. The pattern I see: Track builders are stepping out into the metro Atlanta real estate market but the custom builders are no where to be seen. 

So let's look back. The report you will be looking at, as I mentioned, is generated from Trendgraphix, Inc. I have each of the screens reflecting from December 2009 THROUGH December 2010. This format will allow you to see the trending for 2010. Let me know what you think.
