College Glen Yearly Real Estate Recap Video - 2014 year in review



A very "healthy" year for real estate in College-Glen for 2014. The neighborhood followed a very traditional market of slower in the winter to start the year but then things picked up in the spring/summer season. That carried into the fall with a few very strong months and then the year ended by slowing down a bit again. The market was balanced for both buyers and sellers due to more inventory than years past. The properties that are priced right, show well and have good marketing are getting sold quickly but those properties that are lacking or priced too high are sitting and needing price reductions to get any consideration. 

I expect a very similar year in 2015 as well...time will tell :-)

 Call or Email me if you have any real estate questions. I love working with buyers and sellers in his great neighborhood of College-Glen.

College-Glen Quarterly Real Estate Update - Q4 2014


The market stayed steady in the fourth quarter compared to the third quarter as 2014 came to a close. There were 25 sales in the fourth quarter, a few less than the 28 sold in the third quarter but the same amount as a year ago. The average sales price ($273,900) was down a tiny bit from last quarter ($275,484) and up from one year ago ($261,156).  Average Days on the market(34) has increased from last quarter(26) and a year ago(24) as a bit more homes came on the market in 2014.

The fourth quarter ended the year strong for College-Glen but currently the market is starting to slow down a bit as we are in the traditionally slower winter months.  The inventory (available homes for sale) is the highest it's been in a few years.  That means the sellers are having to compete with each other on price and getting the buyer's attention.  And buyers have more to choose from, so they are being a bit more selective.  I expect that to continue through the start of 2015.  However, the properties that are priced competitively and show very well are still getting sold.  It's the over priced listings or the ones that are not in good condition are sitting and not selling right now.

Call or Email me if you have any real estate questions.  I loves working with buyers and sellers in my great neighborhood of College-Glen.
