The only movement this past week was a Townhome was taken off the market that was previously for sale.

There are currently two TH in the new section of Fair Ridge that have been on the market for over 100 days. They have barely dropped their price. Either they need to drop there price more if they need to sell or wait until next year to put it back on the market.

That only leaves 4 more TH for sale in Fair Ridge and these are short sales.

Owners do not be discouraged if you are thinking about selling. If you have some equity built up and can sustain a little hit and are thinking of getting a single family home or moving closer to the city consider this.

*Numbers are not actual *
If you were trying to sell your TH and you really would like to get 400k for it but you have to take a 20% cut because of the market. Well you can now sell it for 320k YIKES thats true but look at this. Your next purchase a couple years ago would of cost you 600k but now because of the market they are taking a 20% cut. So this means you are getting your next home for 480k. That is a 40k gap you saved !! 120 k vs 80k Not to mention interest rates are so much lower right now than a couple years ago. Now if the market was like it was 3 years ago you would be losing that 40k but in this market you are gaining. You can not sell high and buy low. It just is not possible.

If you are thinking about buying within the next 3 months. Contact us
