Perry GA Single Family Home Report

September 2018 Edition

No real surprise this month in the Perry GA real estate market....lack of fresh inventory continues to keep home sales depressed. In fact, for the 4th straight month, sales decreased as buyers and investors found properties in other parts of Houston County more to their liking.

No doubt about it, homeowners who have been on the fence about this market really need to consider getting their property listed. There are 3+ months of homes for buyers and investors to choose from at the moment. Are you ready to sell?

As a top real estate agent in Perry GA I am continuing to show every available property to clients as soon as we can get into the homes. The quicker buyers and investors see homes, the better. For those that find what they like, and act fast, they are typically in the running to purchase the property. Just remember that others are also out looking and a delay could cost you an opportunity to get the home.

So, what is happening in the Perry real estate market? This review outlines the current status and what the short-term outlook for this market looks like. Stay tuned for all the important details!

What Can Perry GA Residents Expect Regarding Real Estate In The Coming Months?

This could mean a bidding war if you are not ready to write an offer as soon as you decide the property is the home you want. Just remember, any delay could cost you the home as plenty of other buyers are also out looking!

The amount of inventory and low pending sales will be worth monitoring for the next few months to determine if this trend is the new norm or just an anomaly. Time will tell if a host of fresh inventory hits the market and if buyers continue to find homes to their liking in the Perry real estate market.
