Buford GA Pending Home Sales Statistics by Price Range Buford GA Pending home sales statistics by price range. Have you ever wondered what homes are selling in Buford GA? What Gwinnett County home price ranges are most sought after? Well you are not alone, but it is often hard to find this information, so I decided to create a chart to share exactly what homes are selling in Buford GA. Yes mortgage rates are low, but many buyers in this market are being cautious and when purchasing a home are being conservative with their money. Some Buford GA home owners are downsizing selling their large Buford Luxury Estate Homes and buying Buford GA homes. Downsizing for many is a way to stretch their budgets and free up more capital for other uses. It is actually a very sound idea. If you are inter...

When we listed 5821 Apple Grove, we weren't sure how fast it would sell.  We always price the home to sell in 30 days because we know that's the highest price we can get for a home in our current market but we had no idea that we'd get offers in 8 hours of the Jarvis Team marketing the home!   Within the first weekend we had multiple offers on this Buford home and several over list price.  It ultimately sold to a cash buyer who paid over list price and closed in 30 days.   With the selling season heating up, those that are relocating to buford ga will have a tough time earlier in the year as the inventory rises.  We do expect that to level off by summer with new construction creating competition, those looking to relocate to the Atlanta area will have plenty of choices by then.

Just finished up a review on what happened in 2013 in Real Estate in the Mill Creek Area.  With more neighborhoods in Buford overall, something was clear.  Buford is selling out of homes!  The prices are going up even the higher priced homes in Hedgerows and Hidden Falls!  There is really only 2 things that can ruin a banner year for these two neighborhoods.  New Construction and interest rates.  New Construction The highest priced homes in these two neighborhoods were newly built homes.  Unfortunately, the average buyer will have to consider something built in 2014 vs something built before 2010 at it's earliest in this area.  Creating a huge opportunity for builders.  Interest Rates If that wasn't enough, many sellers are waiting until Spring or Summer.  If interest rates go up one po...

      We just closed a property that a client bought three years ago for $44,500, after putting $14,000 or so in rehab and mainatenance when tenants moved out and netting $500 per month in monthly cash flow, they will have made $18,000 in three years from rents (excluding vacancy).  The property just sold for $68,500, which means that even after subtracting renovation and turn costs that the client made another $10,000 in profits from appreciation.  This $28,000 return on a $58,500 investment for acquisition and renovation means that our client made 48% ROI (Return On Investment) in a short three years.  This doesn't count tax advantages from depreciation, and this is also with NO LEVERAGE.  Had the client financed the property instead the return on investment would have been 191%. Thes...
