 Smyrna Vinings condo and townhome buyers continue to take advantage of the market. Even if the weather is cold outside, it hasn’t impacted the condo market. In December, the Smyrna Vinings townhome and condo market sales hit new record highs. Much like the Smyrna Vinings single family home market, Smyrna Vinings condo and townhome sales continue to be spurred by low interest rates. Sales are even higher than last year, which was more than 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 informati...

Don't miss out on your chance to buy a Smyrna Vinings home for Christmas. In November, Smyrna Vinings home sales continued their typical Fall slowdown, but that may just be the opportunity that you need.With continued speculation that the Federal Reserve will raise short term rates in December, we may see more than buyers jumping into the market over the next few months. While the Fed raising rates doesn’t directly impact long-term mortgage rates, it will be a sign that the economy is doing well, which will push long-term rates higher. Rates are currently phenomenalThe chart above 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 b...

Smyrna Vinings home sales leveled off in October. Rates are phenomenal and home inventory is moving quickly.Will we see the typical Fall slowdown over the final quarter of 2015? One would think so, although with continued speculation that the Federal Reserve will raise short term rates in December, that may persuade more buyers to move forward with purchasing this year, rather than waiting until the first quarter of 2016. While the Fed raising rates doesn’t directly impact long-term mortgage rates, it will be a sign that the economy is doing well, which will push long-term rates higher.The  chart above shows you the past 12 months of home sales at any given point.
