 Solon Real Estate – Monthly Home Statistics January 2010

solon winter home

As most people know, January is typically a slow month in real estate in terms of sales. However, we did see the same number of transfers last month as we did in January 2009.

Here is an unofficial list of homes that sold in Solon last month:

38510 Aurora Rd $110,000
34955 Solon $155,500
33342 Warwickshire $174,900
32852 Brackenbury Dr $265,000
35925 Pettibone Rd $319,000
35865 Spatterdock Ln $339,000
39250 Lochmoor Dr $395,000
6842 Teasel Ct $440,000
37655 Windy Hill Ln $460,250

Summary:

While the winter months traditionally bring out the bargain hunters looking for distressed properties, only one of these homes would be considered in that category as it was a short sale. Otherwise, all the homes that sold last month were normal transactions, a possible good sign that the huge run of Solon bank owned homes is over.

The good news is that there are 31 homes currently under contract, most likely to transfer over the next 60 days. Even better news is that 4 of them are luxury homes, those priced over $500,000. Last year the Solon luxury home market was unusually slow, so perhaps this is in indication of a turnaround.

Moving forward, the home buyer tax credit will be expiring on April 30th. This should mean an increase in activity over the next 90 days. There are a lot of buyers out there sitting and waiting for the perfect house, and still a relatively small inventory of available homes, as is typical this time of the year.

Any Solon home owner considering selling their home should do so now, provided they have a very nice home and price it competitively. This spring will bring a flood of buyers to the market, with unusual demand created by the home buyer tax credit. While there has never been a better time to buy, now is also a great time to sell.
