WELCOME FLORENCE Y'ALL BUYERS AND SELLERS! Let's take a look at how 2012 inventory is stacking up for the Florence area as we start into the first weekend of the NEW YEAR.  Today, January 6th, we have 199 homes for sale in the Florence area of which the average list price is $93,910.  The average days on market expectation for these homes before they sell is now at 138 days, so sellers take note.  We also should point out that there are currently 32 Florence sales pending right now, with an average sale price of $137,625 and an average days on market of 116. 

The true litmus test for predicting marketing analytics is found in Florence homes that have sold in the last 6 months.  These are the homes that the appraisers are looking for as new comparatives to rank new appraisals in the market.  So if we take a look at the solds for the area, we find that 200 Florence homes were sold with an average list price of  $154,365     and an average sale price of  $147,904.  That means there was a  4.2 % spread between asking and final sales price...something to note if you are buying or selling in this market.  By the way, the average days on market for these last 6 months was 108 days, just under one month of projected new sales.  

However, there is one element that is helping to push healthy sales in this area, at least for awhile....and that is the great weather this area has been enjoying.  The phones are ringing and the deals are out there. One of the popular deals right now is at 1435 Bayfield Court, but you better be quick about getting out there, because the first bid cycle for owner occupants ends midnight January 8th.  I think by January 9th this baby will be gone! 

All the best in 2012!  Proceed with knowledge and be empowered to make the right decisions in all your real estate transactions.
