This month's data aligns almost perfectly to the Metro Atlanta 2011 sales data and also offers some important information for those of you who are thinking of selling your home in the next 6 months:

Lesson Learned #1 -->  Be prepared to pay all or part of the Buyer's closing costs

5 of the 7 home sellers paid all or part of the closing costs, ranging from $2700 to $8500

Most of the buyers now need to have a 10% or 20% downpayment in order to qualify for a loan and often don't have the extra $5,000 to $15,000 to pay for closing costs and pre-paid / escrow fees

Lesson Learned #2 -->  Price your home correctly the first time

Metro Atlanta sales data tells us that those homes that are listed at or slightly below fair market value when they are listed, sell in 26 days at 97.5% of the listing price (on average).

In this month's report, 4 of the 7 Candler Park / Inman Park homes sold in LESS than 20 days - and 50% of those homes sold at or higher than the listing price.  

The other homes that had a high listing price and had to reduce one or more times during the listing period took 82 to 233 days to sell -- and they sold for significantly less than their original listing price.

If you are a home owner and are worried about pricing your home too low, I wouldn't let that concern you.  If you are priced $10K below the fair market value, buyers will recognize that and most likely, you will receive multiple offers and will often sell for more than the listing price.  

Many banks purposely price their foreclosure homes well below the fair market value in order to generate multiple offers, select the most qualified buyers and maybe even sell the property a little higher than the fair market value!

Lesson Learned #3 -->  Intown Atlantans LOVE older homes!

In this market, we usually only have one buyer for every 12 homes on the market.  In the Little Five Points area a 4 bedroom / 3 bath Victorian or Four Square will almost always sell before the new construction does.  In November, the average age of the homes sold was 96 years sold (1915).  If you have a renovated home that was built before 1930, there is a good chance that it won't take you long to find a buyer!

Lots of Good information. Those sale prices are almost unheard of in my area, Dahlonega. We see very few over $300,00 and plenty under $100,000.
