I want to say a heartfelt “thank you!” to everyone who turned out for my annual “State of the Ford’s Colony real estate market” event on Thursday at the country club.
We FILLED the room with approximately 70 people who showed up for a lively discussion about sales numbers from 2022, trends in the Ford’s Colony market, the outlook for ’23 and beyond, and other topics. It’s the best attendance we’ve had at one our seminars.
I especially appreciated the thoughtful question-and-answer session that truly demonstrated how engaged Ford’s Colony residents are in their community. It made for a very successful afternoon that I think was made better by our new 4 p.m. start time; we’ve held it earlier in the afternoon in the past, but I think folks appreciated the little later kickoff. If you couldn’t make it this year, I hope to see you next year!
As always, please contact me with any questions and comments about the Ford’s Colony market, and do let me know how I can help if you are considering a move.
I very much appreciated all the Ford’s Colony neighbors who turned out for my annual seminar to discuss the Ford’s Colony real estate market on Thursday, Feb. 17.
What an outstanding afternoon! We had more than 60 interested folks attend to be updated on current market conditions, trends and statistics — and to ask some really interesting questions.
Bottom line, the supply of Ford’s Colony homes for sale remains tight. But, as my mentor Liz Moore suggested to the room, the hike in interest rates and potentially fewer Covid concerns from sellers — providing them the confidence to list their home — could soften the market by the fall.
That is a good reminder that, if you are in a position to sell your home, there truly has never been a better time to do so. Please get in touch if you’d like a no-obligation review of your home’s current value.
Ford’s Colony neighbors, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your faith and support during 2021, another challenging year for us all. We closed 43 listings together in Ford’s Colony this year — or 21 percent of all closings in Ford’s Colony! Your confidence is sincerely appreciated.
As you probably know, the local real estate market mirrored the national one in 2021, in that inventory across the board sat at record low levels. Ford’s Colony was no exception. The community remains in peak demand with all closings sales averaging 99 percent of original list price.
I look forward to the 2022 real estate market! I expect inventory levels to gradually improve as, hopefully, more of a sense of normalcy returns to our everyday lives. Mortgage interest rates are expected to increase; however, they should remain at historically low levels, further continuing the “right time to buy” mentality of most consumers. Home values should level with an increase in inventory. Please contact me if you are considering buying or selling a home next year!
I will go into greater detail during my upcoming annual seminar on the state of the Ford’s Colony market. Please circle it on your calendar and plan to attend — Thursday, Feb. 17 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Ford’s Colony Country Club. Please RSVP to Deelyn@LizMoore.com or Christie@LizMoore.com by Monday, Feb. 14.
First-quarter sales statistics for Ford’s Colony show that 30 homes closed in the community from January through March — at an average sold price of $619,417.
The latter number represents an average of 98.3 percent sold-to-original list price.
Average days on the market was 29, and the average price per square foot was $166.
Inventory remains low at 1.6 months supply — and demand is still very hot.
Clearly, it is a great time to sell. And remember, June and July are historically strong as relocating families gear up for the new school year.
If you are considering a move, there’s no time like NOW to declutter and attend to deferred maintenance. Please call or text if I can help; I’m always honored to assist a Ford’s Colony neighbor through the process.
