September 2018 Home Sales for Fairfield, Alabama
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE BIRMINGHAM MLS GIVES AGENTS UNTIL THE 5TH OF THE MONTH TO POST THE PREVIOUS MONTH'S SALES SO THIS NUMBER MAY INCREASE.
Fairfield home sales have been pretty consistent these past few months and that's a good sign. Any time that there is steady sales activity in a community, that is a positive. The reason why is that regular sales activity keeps home values on the move. The more sales, the more likely prices have a tendency to inch up. By contrast, older communities with little to no homes sales are harder to determine market value because of the lack of recent sales data and it's the data that helps agents and appraisers assess market value for you.
Actual Home Sales
As you can see, there were six homes sold in Fairfield during the month of September 2018 and while six (6) may not look like a great number, there is more to the story. This number (6) is further enhanced by the currently pending and contingent sales listed below.
