Last year Albemarle farm sales were up considerably over 2010. However there is still way too much inventory. At the January rate of sales the absorption rate is 21.50 months. Some segments of the Albemarle County real estate market have seen a big upsurge in activity. Contracts are being written and homes are selling, particularly in the $200,000 – $450,000 price range. Sales of the higher priced homes and farms have not picked up at the same rate. Hopefully we will be able to get some of this inventory sold down this year.
The above figures are from the mls and while they are presumed to be correct they are not guaranteed.
