Real Estate Market Update for Forsyth County, GA
Welcome to March's Market Update. Lets take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of February. The number of active listings was up 4% from one year earlier, and down 1% from the previous month. Even so, buyers still enjoyed a greater selection of homes today than they did one year ago. As you can see, the median listing price for the month was just under 430-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 over 340-thousand dollars. The number of units sold decreased 28% year-over-year, and decreased 1% month-over-month. Fewer sales could indicate an opportunity for buyers to negotiate better terms. Thanks for watching.
