The lack of inventory is frustrating for buyers looking for a home in East Cobb. We were already at low inventory levels, and COVID-19 has further complicated the situation. We saw a dip in the average closed sales price in May 2020, but that bounced back up in June 2020. Over the past 10 years the average sales price in East Cobb has increased year over year.
Good news for today’s sellers ….. they face less competition than ever. Another piece of good news for sellers is that the average Original List Price/ Sales Price ratio is staying close to the 98.4% ratio. Which means that sellers with well priced homes and homes in good condition are getting close to their asking price. We see multiple offer situations happening all over the metro area.
Mortgage rates are at historic lows. Move up buyers are taking advantage of these low rates. We understand the challenges of buyers and sellers as they face uncertainty in their lives and businesses, but we do see opportunities for both buyers and sellers now.
