Days on Market (DoM)

Conclusions Final for November is 87. I was looking for the low 80s… preliminary was 93 days. 87 wasn’t great, but not bad For December, preliminary is 89. I would really like to see numbers stay under 90 through January.

New, Pending & Sold Listings

Conclusions I wanted to see listings for Dec come in under 1300,we’re at 1280 so far. For November I wanted to be under 1600, and came in at 1444. Getting rid of stale inventory is a key factor. I’m surprised by the increase in Pendings. I’m disappointed by Nov final Sales.

Conclusions Nov. final numbers showed sales down 36% from 2007. Also important, more than 33% of the Pendings from Oct. failed to close. December preliminary numbers show a continued seasonal weakening. Overall, they may not be too bad. We’ll have to see… There is still a long way to go. 6 months of supply is considered balanced. No matter how you slice it we are 2-3 times that.

New/Sold Ratio This ratio compares new listings and sold listings for a given month. It is useful to sellers in determining a pricing strategy.

New/Sold Ratio In Nov., 26% as many homes sold as were listed during the month. This means that on average, for each 4 homes that were put up for sale, 1 sold. I thought we would get to 30%. In Dec., early numbers point to 25% (1:4), but I expect to see that upgrade to 30% for the final numbers.

New/Sold Ratio

Conclusion The weakness of the N/S% shows that few homes are priced attractively to Buyers. This number tops around 67% Anything under 33% is very weak. I expect there to be a seasonal “pop” for Dec. and a fizzle for January.

List Price/Sales Price Ratio November – 93.74% December – 92.68% Over the last few years Sale Prices generally held between 97% and 98.5% of List. We’ve been under 96% since June ’08. Honestly, though, this isn’t a huge indicator of the market, but it does show “Seller Capitulation.”

Conclusion List/Sale Price % gives an indication of Buyer strength. It also shows whether Sellers are being realistic with pricing. The indications are also very general.

Overall Conclusion I’m actually surprised a little by December Pendings. They came in higher than I expected. Right now my big concern is “Pendings Failures”. They have been running 3-4 times what it was just a few months ago. Last year I was calling for a 2 nd Quarter recovery in Gwinnett, but we need to see how Fall goes to know if there is recovery or just skipping along a bottom.

Overall Conclusions September being up in sales was important, but not conclusive. It was a weak month last year. I don’t think we are seeing the recovery yet. We might be on the bottom, but can’t really know that until next spring. There are some great deals, and there are some dogs. The key is finding the right deals. Keeping perspective, sales are cyclical. This is a good time for investment… not a great time to sell without a strategy.

Overall Conclusions I think that we will see some weakness in the numbers over the next couple of months, possibly due to the Credit Crisis. I really want to see more of the Pending Sales make it to the closing table. March-May will be pivotal in the Atlanta area market. Spring is the strong season. I still think that if we aren’t AT the bottom, we can see it from here.
