There are currently 1476 homes listed for sale on Georgia Multiple Listing Service in Fayette County.  The average price of homes for sale is $405,857.

What does this all mean?  The real estate market is own from last year.  While sold prices are still dropping, the list prices continue to increase along with the average number of days on the market.

Even in the worst real estate market, the best homes sell.  The best condition, location, features and of course, the best price.

In the first quarter of 2008 I sold 10 times the national average for real estate agent production.  I have sold real estate for 30 years, through other challenging market conditions and I know when the market comes back it is usually with a vengance.  It may not happen for awhile so if you have to sell, call or email me and let's discuss your personal situation.  If anyone can help you, I can.
