What all went down in the 2020 East Cobb real estate market? Here’s a brief refresher:
It might surprise some of you that sales rose by 38%. People were definitely still buying homes in 2020—during a pandemic! However, it probably won’t surprise you to know that listings were down by 48%. This was a recipe for an increase in the average sales price, which, in fact, rose by 6.8%. In the price point under $650,000, prices probably increased by 14% or 15%, but in the luxury category, prices rose at a much slower rate.
Homes are currently spending an average of 24 days on the market, which is down by 31% over last year. Throughout the health crisis, people wanted to spend less time on the market and have fewer strangers coming through their homes. However, for people who did have to reduce their home’s price after going on the market, their days on market was actually over 100 days! 2020 showed us that even though sales prices were up and inventory was down, it was still possible to overprice your property and linger on the market for months at a time.
"People were still buying homes in 2020—during a pandemic!"
Finally, in December, we saw the number of pending homes go up by 9%, which sets us up for a strong January and February market.
