Pine Mountain Lake Real Estate Market Conditions

2021 2nd Quarter Update (July 4, 2021)

The market remains very hot with no signs of letting up in sight.  For those who are selling, it has been wonderful!  With our inventory of homes for sale being under 20 homes for most of the year, prices have climbed dramatically and multiple offer situations are now common.

For those that are looking to buy it has been difficult.  Any home that is priced appropriately will have multiple offers and “bidding wars”, often times with up to 6 homebuyers involved. The lower the price range, the more likely that we see this.

The winners are those of us who already own a home here in PML.  Many ask me if the market will slow down as Covid diminishes and in my opinion, the answer is NO!  The exodus from the cities will continue.

Covid made many companies realize the benefits of having employees working from home and that will continue after the pandemic is gone.  Additionally, many our fed up with the growing negative issues of city living (traffic, homelessness, civil unrest, theft, etc.).

We are also experiencing an exodus from California with some of our locals who are selling going to Arizona, Montana, Idaho, Nevada, and other states.

And now, how about some market statistics (and these are impressive):

There were an amazing 94 single family homes sold in Pine Mountain Lake in the first half of the year, with a median list price of $397,000 and a median sale price of $385,000. The median sale price in 2020 was $284,800 – 100K less!

The median sale price to list price ratio for the first two quarters 2021 was 97% (homes selling on average only 3% below asking price).  Homes which sold had a median marketing period of 58 days on the market, a lot lower than the median for 2020 at 148 days.

As of this writing (July 4, 2021) we have 28 PML homes in escrow, and an inventory of 24 homes on the market.  I think that is the most that we have seen on the market this year, thanks to a pre-holiday surge in listings in the last two weeks.  That is about a quarter of the number of homes that we typically would have on the market at this time of year.  We have continuously had more homes in escrow than homes on the market and that is pretty incredible.

With the inventory so low now, new listings are being priced higher, and our values should continue to increase in 2021.  If you are thinking of selling your home, I encourage you to get on the market now while the competition is low and the market is still hot.  You couldn’t have a better opportunity.

If you want to monitor new listings, “Get New Listing Updates” is a great tool of my website that allows you to personalize and save a property search and be immediately updated when a new listing that matches your criteria comes on the market.  Please utilize it, and don’t worry; I won’t pester you if you sign up for updates.

If you’re ready to begin your home search, give me a call.  It would be my pleasure to show you any homes that you find on this site.  I also can also give you a tour of Pine Mountain Lake and Groveland, and show you the numerous amenities, restaurants, and attractions that make this community such a great place to vacation and live.
