It’s a seller’s market on Lake Martin!

Posted on

If you have been thinking of selling your home, there has not been a better time since 2006. Our Lake Martin market is thriving, and new construction is popping up lake wide. Regardless of what you have heard in the past about waiting until spring to put your house on the market,  now is a great time and opportunity to sell.  

It comes down to supply and demand. Sales are up and inventory is low. We are currently working with buyers seeking their dream Lake Martin home, and due to the low inventory, some simply cannot find what they are looking for. Most of our house hunters want to get their new property under contract in order to close by spring, so they get to enjoy most of the next few seasons. Buyers are excited about the lake life experience and all it has to offer. That puts you, the seller, in an excellent position; current interest rates are just the icing on the cake!

Current interest rates, compliments of Melanie Foshee at River Bank and Trust are as follows: 

  • Jumbo 4.25%
  • Conventional, 30 year 3.875%
  • Conventional 15 year 3.25% 

Other interesting statistics over the past year (October 2018 – October 2019) include:

  • 347 waterfront properties were sold on Lake Martin 
  • 77 of those were condos, townhomes or villas. The lowest sale price was $180,000 and the highest was $650,000. Talk about a great investment! 
  • 36 of those are currently active with 8 presently under contract
