Real Estate Market Update for Canton, GA
Welcome to December's Market Update. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of November. The number of active listings was down 2% from one year earlier, and down 7% from the previous month. This smaller inventory means that buyers who waited to buy may have had a smaller selection to choose from. As you can see, the median listing price for the month was just under 350-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was up 11%. This higher number of days may signal a slowdown in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just under 250-thousand dollars. The number of units sold increased 28% year-over-year, and decreased 7% month-over-month.
