Bartow, Floyd, and Gordon County Market Update
A few market stats and a tip for if you can’t find the right home to buy.
Today I’m sharing a few market stats as well as something to consider if you’re having trouble finding the right home to buy right now.
"Moving a little further out could open up more possibilities for you."
Here in Bartow County, the average sales price has increased to $259,000, in Floyd County, it’s $198,000, and it’s $186,000 in Gordon County. In situations like this where sales prices are so different, you may want to look a little further out to find the home you’ve been dreaming about in your price point. My husband used to have a job near Atlanta, but we could only afford a very tiny home near there, but if we moved a little farther out, we could find a house that fit our family’s size. That’s one of the reasons we first moved to Bartow County.
Everyone has a job, some may commute, and some might have children in school, and those things are important. However, you may want to consider moving to Floyd or Gordon County where home prices are better. Sometimes the commutes are only five or ten more minutes because of our great interstates and the many different road systems between these three counties. Moving a little further out could open up more possibilities for you.
We are starting to see increases in inventory, thank goodness. We had 148 new listings come onto the market in Bartow County in April and 76 in Gordon County. Houses are still selling very quickly.
As always, if you have any questions about the market or want to discuss your situation, don’t hesitate to reach out to us via phone or email. We would love to help you.
