Market stats for Lilburn, December, 2010, indicates that there are 379 properties on the market (as of December 31st). Overall, there is about a 10.9 month supply of properties. Lilburn is actually mid-pack among cities in Gwinnett County. The Absorption Rates had been getting worse since August, but December clocked an improvement from 11.8 months of inventory in November. In March there were 15.3 months of inventory.
In the sub-$200k arena, there are 244 listings, with about an 8.0 month supply. This represents most of the sales in the market area, and reflects the same improvement in inventory levels, continuously since March, until October. Sales were drastically higher than December 2009 (31 v 22). Oddly, the Absorption Rate is exactly the same as a year ago.
Between $200k and $400k, there are 114 listings for sale, and about 28.5 months of supply. This segment has been quite weak for months. Having 0 sales in December, and only 6 each on November and October didn't help. For comparison, in 2009 there were 18 sales in October, 9 in November and 7 in December. The expected end of the tax credit last year started pushing sales down in Nov. 2009. While the Absorption Rate got slightly better compared to last month, the change was marginal.
From $400k to $600k, there are 16 homes on the market. The absorption rate is around 48 months. There were no sales in this segment in May, June, July, October or December this year. There were only 4 sales in August and September(combined). November had 1 sale (2 last year). Last summer was much stronger overall. With just a few sales, just one or two can make a huge difference.
From $600k to $800k, $800k to $1M and Above $1M, there are 5 listings (combined), but too few sales to have any sort of reliable number of months of inventory. There has been one sale in the last five months, but prior, there had only been a few other sales in 2010 (January, March and August). One of the listings is above $1M (none between $800k and $1M), and there is no market activity in the last 12 months for that range…
