Marietta Georgia 30068 Home Sales Statistics Strong

30068

30068

A client of mine who was considering selling his home recently asked me to provide some sales and pricing statistics for zip code 30068, located in Marietta Georgia. The family was glad to see that Marietta Georgia real estate trends were improving and thought it was a great time to list their home for sale.  In 2011, there were 377 sales with an average list price of $398,854 and an average sales price of $377,300, a sales price to list price ratio of 95%, a sales price to original list price ratio (taking into account price reductions) of 91% and an average days on market of 130. We would consider this a pretty slow moving market.

Atlanta Pocket Listings

 

There’s a new catch phrase being circulated in the real estate industry and it’s coming to a town near you. Pocket Listings, or hip pocket listings as they are popularly called, are real estate listings that have not fully hit the market, yet. They are not being advertised in the local multiple listing service (mls) and are usually hidden, secretive, or private offerings available to people in the know. You can almost equate them to an initial public offering (ipo) of stock, available at first, to a clientele and then to the general public once they are listed. Atlanta pocket listings are becoming more and more prevalent as the Atlanta real estate market heats up and we prepare for a recovery in 2014.

No one needs to be reminded of the fact that home prices fell after the last housing boom. Many observers predicted a continuation of that trend. Now, however, the market has returned to a historically average level of appreciation. We can also see that variance from year to year is perfectly normal.

So will values continue to increase? Truth is that no one knows for certain as many factors influence home prices. However, we do know where prices are right now and even more importantly, where interest rates are, and that’s still close to historic lows. The combination of prices that are still off the

Government shutdown not affecting interest rates, yet

The following is a guest blog from Jeffrey Heckman and Joanne Rotella with Shelter Mortgage Company and does not necessarily reflect the views of GeorgiaMoves.com

1. Of course, the big news last week was our country’s first partial government shutdown in 17 years! Surprisingly, though, the impact on the mortgage business has been minimal. The only big loss thus far has been the USDA rural housing program. Be aware that the longer the shutdown drags out, though, the more problems and delays will begin to occur.

2. The government shutdown’s impact on mortgage rates has also been minimal mostly because U.S. Government economic reports are not being released. The markets will be less volatile with less news being reported.

3. The first Friday of each month is usually notable for the reaction to the Employment report but, obviously, there was no report released on Friday. Investors were forced to adjust
