This is good news for all home owners in our area. Thinking of selling -check out these numbers.

The Real Estate Market in Lake Tansi in 2014

Everyone that lives in Tansi has an interest in the way homes are selling. The more homes that are selling the better the price of your home. I have lived here for 21 years and have seen a lot. I love it  and we have a great community to live. 

As a Real estate agent I'm also interested in how many homes have sold and the average price. There are homes in the area that have been on the market for a long time. the main reason a house stays on the market for a long time is the owner or agent have over priced the home. We all want to get the most money for our homes, but we also have to consider the market. The 2 main things in determining the market value( what a buyer is willing to pay) of a house is - what has sold in the past 6 months that is like your home and the houses on the market now that will be your competition. 

Buyers are very educated when it comes to the market place. They do their homework. There is all kinds of info on the internet now. They know what you paid for the home. What other homes had sold for in you neighborhood. 

So to sell your home you and your agent must make sure you price your home right from the beginning. Price it so it competitive and still get the most you can get. A good agent does not just pull numbers out of the air or just ask you what you need to get out of the house. Pricing a home right from the start and getting the most you can, plus getting it sold quickly takes work and research.

So here is what happened in 2014.

Total sales of single family homes: 92        

Total volume of sales  $11,959,175

Average sale price $130,000.

 Number of residential listings now 56,

this number is down from last year. Might be a good time to put your house on the market if your thinking of selling.

Real Estate Market Analysis for March 2014


The real estate market has been a concern for home owners for a few years, there is a swing up and most homeowners are glad. I have put together the numbers for March of this year for Lake Tansi.

Sales last year or March 2013:   5 sales average price $109,380
                         March 20214:    9 Sales average price $141,158.
The first quarter this years there was  20 homes sold in Tansi compared  to 16 last year.
Lake Tanis is doing better.The average sale price is up.

This market analysis is just a quick look at the market in Cumberland County for March.

      Area                     Homes sold                Total sales                 Average
Lake Tansi                           9                            $1,270,425        $141,158
Fairfield Glade                     18                          $2,993,550        $166,308
Cumberland Co                  26                          $3,026,825        $116,416 

Number of listings Today
Lake Tansi               83
Fairfield Glade       335
County                  406

This is down a little from last year, but the bad weather we had the past 2 months has kept the sales down. The sales in March were ones that were wrote in January and February of this year, and we know how bad that has been. So I think the market analysis numbers will go up in April.
It is always helpful for home sellers to see what is happening in their community when thinking of selling their home. You need to know the local market, I know a lot of home sellers and buyers get on the internet and look at articles about home sells. That is ok, but remember – not all markets are the same.
Check back for Aprils market analysis in a few weeks and see what the pretty weather has brought about. 
If you would like more market numbers in the area, please e-mail me for my yearly numbers brochure.

What you should know BEFORE buying Lake Tansi Lots.


So you have found an incredible deal on a lot in Lake Tansi that sounds almost too good to be true...well, it just might be.

If you are thinking of purchasing a lot in Lake Tansi, the first and most important thing you need to do is make sure you will be able to build that dream home you have in mind on that lot.  Lake Tansi does not have a sewer system, so the lot you purchase has to be soil tested and the Ground Water Protection Agency has to give you a permit to put in a septic tank in (you may have heard it referred to as a perc test).  No permit for a septic tank, no house.  Unfortunately, a large number of the lots for sale will not "perc" and are NOT buildable.

There are tons of good deals and excellent lots to be had, but don't get fooled by the sticker price on some of them.  You don't have to look very hard to find very inexpensive lots online, but often they conveniently forget to mention whether or not the soil has been tested.  

If you do have questions about a specific lot or need more help, please contact me.
