The Smyrna Vinings townhome and condo market was on fire in November much like the Smyrna Vinings single family home market. Smyrna Vinings condo and townhome sales have had a strong year, which is evident in the buyer activity that we’ve seen in 2013. Sales are now higher than 2007 levels, which is a huge shift and double the sales from just a couple years ago. As you can see, we’ve been tracking the market for quite some time. We sell a lot of Smyrna Vinings homes, condos and townhomes and one of the major reasons is that we specialize in the area, we know the inventory of homes for sale and understand the trends, statistics and all the local pertinent information necessary for you to make an informed decision. As you’ll notice, the green bar is 2007 and we were selling a lot more con...

  Wondering where Santa is right now. Great news. It appears that Santa is off to a great start delivering gifts to all the children around the world. He is quite busy as we write this as he’s delivering toys in China right now. So it may be time to start baking the cookies and make those last minute plans for Christmas Eve. Just be sure to get the kids tucked into their beds early tonight. Santa is on his way to the Smyrna Vinings area, so be ready.   If you’re one of those people who have actually lit a fire in their fireplace in this warm weather, make sure you put it out before Santa arrives. He never likes it when his britches get singed.   Also, if you want to keep up to date on Santa’s progress, click here for the Santa Tracker.   And as an added bonus, you can now track Santa on...

It’s been an amazing year for Smyrna Vinings home sales as they continue to grow. Sales have continued to grow throughout the year and are reaching levels that we never thought could happen just a couple years ago. How much longer can we expect this to keep going? Typically we see lower sales in November through January, but that wasn’t the case last year and will be interesting to see what happens this year. This chart shows you the past 12 months of home sales at any given point. As you’ll notice, the green bar is 2007 and we were selling a fair amount more homes in 2007. Sales dropped significantly in 2008, with the drop becoming more pronounced toward the last quarter of 2008. That would be the beginning of the financial meltdown. 2009 home sales started off about 32% off the level ...

The Week in Review: After increasing for the previous couple of weeks, Smyrna Vinings mortgage interest rates declined last week. Lackluster economic reports and comments from Janet Yellen caused mortgage rates to drop by approximately .125% on the week. What to Expect: This week is packed with economic reports which pull the market either direction. We will get a speech by at least one Fed member each day this week. The market will search for clues about when the Fed may temper its’ bond purchase program. In addition, the minutes of the October Fed meeting are released Wednesday. Overall, we are in an increasing rate environment. When rates do tick down, it is wise to lock in loans.

It’s been an amazing year for Smyrna Vinings home sales as they continue to grow. In the past four months, sales, while still increasing, are not doing so at the same pace as earlier this year. How much longer can we expect this to keep going? Typically we see lower sales in November through January, but that wasn’t the case last year and will be interesting to see what happens this year. This chart shows you the past 12 months of home sales at any given point. As you’ll notice, the green bar is 2007 and we were selling a fair amount more homes in 2007.
