Smyrna Condo Market off to Strong Start in 2015

Smyrna Vinings condo and townhome buyers weren’t letting the unusually long winter weather bother them. In January and February, the Smyrna Vinings townhome and condo market sales surged to new records. Much like the Smyrna Vinings single family home market, Smyrna Vinings condo and townhome sales continue to be spurred by low interest rates. Sales are even higher than last year, which was more than double the sales from just a couple years ago.

Smyrna Vinings Condos Sales February 2015

As you can see, we’ve been tracking the market for quite some time. We sell a lot of Smyrna Vinings homes, condos and townhomes and one of the major reasons is that we specialize in the area, we know the inventory of homes for sale and understand the trends, statistics and all the local pertinent information necessary for you to make an informed decision.

The green bar is 2007 and we were selling a lot of condos and townhomes back then. Sales dropped continuously in 2008, while 2009 stabilized and picked up in the fourth quarter largely due to the first-time home buyer tax credit. 2010 saw the market peak in the late Spring and Summer. Smyrna Vinings condo saw slow and steady improvement in 2012 and took off in 2013. So much so, that we are now at all-time highs. Buyers are finding it harder to resist today’s low interest rates and the attractive prices. It really is the perfect opportunity for a home buyer.

Smyrna Vinings Condos for Sale February 2015

The Active Listings chart depicts Smyrna Vinings condos and townhomes currently for sale. You’ll note that total active listings peaked in 2008, which can be explained based upon sales dropping significantly in 2008, which resulted in Smyrna Vinings townhomes and condos sitting on the market longer. In 2009, we saw the active listings drop significantly and this can be tied to the economic uncertainty, which resulted in a lot less development of new condos and townhomes for sale in the Smyrna Vinings market.

This trend has continued. Inventory remained low throughout 2014 with a slight increase in the latter half of the year. The start of 2015 has shown a small increase active listings, but not by a lot, which means there isn’t much to choose from for Smyrna Vinings condo and townhome buyers. One interesting point about this is you have less competition if you want to sell in today’s market. If you’ve thought about selling and just aren’t sure, be sure to contact us or find out how much your home is worth. And if you’re looking to buy, inventory is thin and you’ll be fighting over the best properties with other buyers.

Smyrna Vinings Condos Months Inventory February 2015

One other important statistic that we like to track is how we gauge the health of the Smyrna Vinings townhome and condo market. Months of inventory is a calculation that takes the current amount of homes for sale and divides that by the number of homes that have sold in the last 12 months. What the result means is if no more homes were listed, how many months would it take, based upon the past 12 months activity, to sell all the homes currently for sale. A result of 6 months is considered a healthy market, less than 6 months a seller’s market and more than 6 months, a buyer’s market.

The highest amount of bloat and most severe buyer’s market was in January of 2009 with significant improvement coming at the end of 2009 and throughout 2010. What you can see in the chart above is that months of inventory dropped significantly over the last couple years, with the beginning of 2014 hitting new lows. With the big jump in sales over the past year, inventory hasn’t been keeping up. 2015 is likely to continue the trend of very low inventory.

That’s your Smyrna Vinings condo and townhome activity recap for February 2015.

Hope that was helpful and don’t hesitate to contact us if we can help you sell your Smyrna Vinings condo or townhome or find your new Smyrna Vinings townhome or condo. And don’t forget that we offer the most extensive Smyrna Vinings condo and townhome search in the area.
