In January 2008, 17 homes sold in Fluvanna County. They sold for an average price of $277,700. The homes had been listed at an average price of $287,029 and the median was $255,000. They were on the market for an average of 97 days and sold for an average of 96.75% of the list price.
What do these figures tell us? One thing that we can see is that the median price of the pending and contingent homes in January is down from the homes that went under contract in December. This does not mean that the homes values have dropped this far, but rather shows us what consumers are willing to spend at this time. It may also reflect the sales of foreclosures which have come into the market. We can also see that the overall sales numbers are very flat. With the large amount of inventory still on the market, we will have to see a major rise in sales to buy down this inventory before we will have a return to a stable market. It is still a great time to buy with lots of homes to choose from, historically low interest rates, many sellers who are ready to negotiate, and foreclosures on the market offering some good deals.
