Understanding the Real Estate Market

As in any market the numbers are always changing. However, the real estate market is not the same in all parts of the country. Even with any state, the market varies greatly depending on many different factors. Some of these factors can be:

  • Geographic location
  • Desirability of a certain area
  • Amenities or other features
  • Job market
  • Availability or demand
  • and the list goes on…

The Federal Housing and Finance Agency may release reports stating that the “overall” housing market may be up or down. These numbers are often based upon Nationwide statistics.  However, these numbers may be far removed from the housing market in Highlands/Cashiers and surrounding areas. Why is this the case? Because the majority of homes in our sector of the real estate market are “second” homes. So when comparing the National market on home sales and construction, those numbers can be irrelevant.

The same can be true when comparing numbers for the “Sales Market” in other areas. For example,  some markets may be having bidding wars on homes. In other areas, many home sales may be substantially less than tax assessment. Also, in this market it is not uncommon to see homes with over 300 Days On Market.
