Three Charts Depicting the Charlottesville Real Estate Market Entering December 2013
Curiosity stole an hour of my morning â€¦ I intended to update only the Crozet â€œWhen do homes come on the marketâ€ spreadsheet, got lost there for a bit and decided to look at the Charlottesville MSA numbers.
2012â€™s Charlottesville MSA sales trends – looking at when homes came on the market, when they went under contract and when they closed.
Well, this is interesting.
And the differential between 2013 and 2012.

April 2012 Charlottesville Real Estate Market Report
– Days on Market (an inherently flawed data point) are down in Charlottesville, Albemarle and Fluvanna.
– Average Sales prices are down (not surprising)
– Total sales across the MSA are down (not surprising)
– More buyers are looking to be closer in/closer to stuff
– Good properties are selling and selling quickly
– Interest rates remain low – a good thing for buyers.
– I think we may have pulled the spring market forward a bit; the early spring may have pulled transactions into the earlier months of the year.
Dead simple Takeaways:
– Buyers: do your due diligence, don’t let emotion enter the equation and make sound, rationale decisions with the intent of holding the property for at least five to seven years
– Sellers: do your due diligence and realize that buyers most often don’t have to buy, but want to buy – it’s your job to make them want to buy your house. This means: price, presentation, perfection â€¦ and a great location and setting.
