Hot Off the Press! First Half Real Estate Recap for New Albany!

As your New Albany real estate advisers, Tony and I thought you might be interested in how our market is faring this year compared to last year. Inventory is down, days on market are declining and prices are heading upward – especially on the 50+ homes sold in June!

Below are the year to date statistics for the communities in New Albany. Without exception, all neighborhoods have seen 2013 prices rise anywhere from $4/square foot to $15/square foot, depending on the community. The average sales price in New Albany school district rose 9% over the same time last year. The number of homes sold through June is flat with last year but I expect that to see this change when the unprecedented 90 homes currently in contract close by summer’s end.
