Bonaire GA Market News for August 2018
As expected and predicted, home sales in the Bonaire GA real estate market dropped this past month. With kids back in school, the sense of urgency that was prevalent in the early part of the summer has started to wane. However, despite low inventory, there are still plenty of good deals for interested consumers.
If homeowners ensure their property is market priced and well maintained, they will get plenty of buyer and investor traffic coming through. As stated over the past few months, it is imperative potential sellers who are considering putting their home up for sale, do so now while the market is in their favor.
With only 2+ months of available houses to choose from, the amount of available inventory is making it harder to locate properties that meet consumer needs. Is this market good for buyers, sellers or both? Stay tuned for all the details.
As a Top Bonaire GA real estate agent, I am doing everything in my power to get buyers into every house as quickly as possible to ensure they have an opportunity to preview the property and make an offer if they like the home. Unless new inventory becomes available soon, this community could continue to see a drop-off in home sales as the seasons begin to change. There is no doubt about it...it is a very good time for existing homeowners to list their house in Bonaire GA.
