The first quarter is now officially complete. The Solon Ohio luxury real estate market has been somewhat active so far in 2009. There have been a total of 6 luxury home sales in Solon. This is almost equivalent to the number of homes that sold during the first quarter of 2008, where we had 7 home sales.

 

A COMPARISON OF FIRST QUARTER HOMES SALES – SOLON LUXURY HOME MARKET 2009 VS. 2008

  Ave. Sale Price Ave. Price Sq./Ft Ave. Market Time
2009 – 6 sold $595,333 $130,92 193
2008 – 7 sold $693,000 $159.08 130

 

SUMMARY: Even though the actual number of sales in 2009 is only 1 less than last year, the average sale price of a luxury home here in Solon is significantly lower. The reason for this is due to one specific factor: bank owned homes. Of the 6 sales in the luxury home market this year, 5 have been bank owned homes.

It appears bargain hunters have been doing most of the buying during the first quarter of this year. At this point, many of the bank owned home have sold and there are fewer remaining on the market. Since all 7 sales during the first quarter of 2008 were non-banked owned transactions, the statistics are a little worrisome. The good news is that homes in the lower end of the luxury price point, $500,000-$600,000, are selling and the inventory is relatively low. This portion of the Solon luxury home market appears to be somewhat balanced in term of buyers and sellers. A good sign.

The homes in the higher end of the luxury home market are not selling. The fact that there are currently 23 active homes for sale in Solon priced over $700,000, does not bode well for unmotivated sellers.

The great news is that it is an amazing time to buy a luxury home in Solon.
