According to Trulia.com, “The median sales price for homes in Winder GA for Mar 09 to May 09 was $121,000. This represents an increase of 0.7%, or $846, compared to the prior quarter and a decrease of 1.1% compared to the prior year. Sales prices have depreciated 5.4% over the last 5 years in Winder.
The average listing price for Winder homes for sale on Trulia was $161,729 for the week ending Jun 10, which represents an increase of 0.9%, or $1,447, compared to the prior week and an increase of 2.1%, or $3,289, compared to the week ending May 20. Average price per square foot for Winder GA was $70, a decrease of 12.5% compared to the same period last year.”
The positive that one can see from this is that sales were off “only” a fraction of what the media projections were for the past year across the nation. Also, the numbers of sales were up 20.8%. A correction in sales price (5.4% in last 5 years) and a sudden increase in numbers of sales bode well for the town and could be a call to a bottom in Winder.
Compare this to Athens, GA for example where we have maintained average and median sales prices but days on market have increased 10% and numbers of sales have decreased by another third looking at year over year homes sold in Athens-Clarke.
