STRONG BUYERS’ MARKET CONTINUES INTO 2008
WITH SALES VOLUME AND PRICES STILL SLIDING
It is a fantastic time to buy a home in
The Weiss-Clawson Team researches home sales and prices in Ironhorse Country Club and in Steeplechase. Sales volume is holding fairly steady comparing 2006 and 2007 in the two communities but is significantly lower than the banner sales year of 2005. Sales prices are dramatically lower in 2007 compared with 2006 and, in some instances, homes are selling below prices paid in 2005. Looking at price per square foot, Ironhorse home prices declined 16% from 2006 to 2007. In Steeplechase, prices declined 10% over the past year. Both communities have a large number of homes on the market and many of the homes have been on the market for longer than six months.
