New Bern Home Sales

46 Home sales from Dec.1-Dec.20 2009 have been recorded. This compares to the following sales in previous years.

46 sales in 08

95 sales in 07

131 sales in 06

It is good to see sales this month are in line with sales last year during the same time period. You cannot compare them to 06, 07, because we will never see sales like that again. Those were unsustainable numbers that the new banking regulations will prevent from happenning again.

Have a safe and wonderful. Christmas.

E-Pro Certification

As a recent graduate of the Realtor certified E-Pro Coarse I learned quite a bit about the web as it relates to the real estate industry. If your Realtor is not up to speed with the web, you are not getting your moneies worth. Especially since 85% of folks begin their search for real estate on the wen.

Well, December sales are off quite a bit from last year. I still think it is because many folks made a effort to buy in November to make sure they got the $8000 tax credit. So in essence we borrowed buyers from the future in November but that is ok.

New Bern Real Estate

November 2009 sales=105. The highest price sold was $845,000 and the lowest was $42,999.

November 2008 sales=70. The highest price home sold was $500,000 and the lowest was $39,000.

Good news. Lets hope so. Not sure why this happened except that perhaps the 1st time home buyers tax credit spurred on a dash at the end of December.
