As you can see from the above report, the Median Sales Price for Homes Sold in Blairsville, GA. continues to fall. There was a change of $21,525, down 14% from February of 2009. This is due mostly in part to the Short Sales and Foreclosures that continue to plague both our Residential Market, and even more so our Vacant Lots and Acreage Market. I will be sharing that report in a later post.
The good news is because of the amount of Short Sales and Foreclosures, the number of units SOLD is up 18%. Only a change of 3, but 18% sounds so much better. There was no change this month over a year ago for number of properties that went under contract. The number of homes under contract year over year in February was 20.
The number of new homes being listed in Union County is down 31%. We had 27 fewer residential listings hit the market in Blairsville Georgia in February 2010 over last year. This is mainly due in part to New Construction coming to a near halt. Along with number of new listings going down, the total number of Properties For Sale in Blairsville was down 14% as well.
Our average Days On Market (DOM) for Homes Listed In Blairsville was up 32%, an added 47 days from the previous 149 from a year ago to a total of 196 average days on market. However with the drop in Inventory and a slight increase in Demand, our Month Supply of Inventory, better known as our Absorption Rate is down 14% to roughly 31 months.
