Market stats for Norcross GA, November, 2011 indicate that there were 268 properties on the market.  Overall, there is about a 5.1 month supply of properties.  This year has been very strong so far… although April and May weren’t that strong (April was below last year)… it hasn’t slowed much.  November saw 52 sales, above the 30 for November, 2010, but below the 58 for October.  This is one of the few market areas in Gwinnett to post six strong months in a row.

In the sub-$200k arena, there were 157 listings, with about 3.7 month supply.  Sales are down from last month but up from a year ago in this segment, which is the main driver of sales in this area (45 v 46 in Oct11 & 28 Nov10).  For the last seven months, the AR has been tilted in favor of sellers.  This still looks like one of the strongest price/area segment in Gwinnett County, GA.

Between $200k and $400k, there were 80 listings for sale, and about 10.4 months of supply.  This segment isn’t as weak as it had been over the last several months, and is continuing to build strength.  The 4 sales were solidly up compared to last year’s 1 sale, but down from last month’s 9 sales.  Even though it isn’t gangbusters, it is certainly better than the 28 months of inventory we had in December, 2010.

From $400k to $600k, there were 24 homes on the market.  The Absorption Rate is around 10.3 months.  The AR had been dropping for months, then shot WAY up in June.  It has been working down slowly since.  November’s 2 sales is down from 3 the month before but up from last year’s 1 sale… and the inventory decrease didn’t hurt too much, either.

In the $600k to $800k arena, there were 3 listings on the market. Inventories had increased compared to last year. The Absorption Rate is at 9 months of inventory… but with only 4 sales last year and then the sale in March and another each in May and June, and 1 sale in November, obviously it is easy to bump one way or the other. One reason for the strong looking Absorption Rate last month was that there were so few listings.

The range from $800k to $1m, there was 1 home listed on the market and no sales… seemingly forever.

Above $1m, there were 4 properties listed. But because of the smaller numbers of sales, the absorption rate could be significantly impacted by just a couple of sales. The volatile Absorption Rate is at 48 months of inventory.

Norcross, GA is a suburb of Atlanta in Gwinnett County. The population is 2000 was 8,410 but that only included the area inside the city limits, and it has seen tremendous growth since that census. The City of Norcross revamped their old town a long time ago, and it has served as a model for other towns in the area. It is also home to Meadow Creek and Norcross High Schools. One of the things that Norcross is known for locally is the beautiful older homes in the downtown area. They have maintained their historic flair quite successfully.
