Third-quarter Ford's Colony numbers are in!

by Deelyn Robinson

Sales statistics I compile for my quarterly “Market Watch” update show the sale of 103 homes (including townhomes and condos) had closed in Ford’s Colony through Sept. 30. 

The average sold price in Ford’s Colony through the third quarter of 2019 was $499,698, at 94.2 percent of the original list price. (The range of sales prices in the third quarter alone was $278,000 to $770,000.)

104 Worksop
3 Bedroom | 3 Bath | 2,209 SQ FT
Now offered at $370,000!


Other key statistics through Sept. 30:

  • Average months supply of inventory – 6.8
  • Average price per square foot — $148
  • Average days on the market – 81.1 (down from 94 through the second quarter)

In all 40 homes closed in the third quarter – 17 in July, 15 in August and eight in September.

I very much appreciate the kind words of my friend and client John Urban, whose sale closed during the third quarter: “For a major happening in your life you want a qualified, experienced professional – that is what Deelyn and her team bring to the table. With Deelyn as your representative — from the original walk through to the staging, to her extraordinary marketing and onto the closing negotiation — you are always in available good hands. She gets the job done!”

Thank you, John!

Always a good day to honor our Vets

by Deelyn Robinson

My late father was a military veteran; my husband's father as well. Most families are connected to the United States military in some way -- fathers, mothers, sons and daughters -- and know very much first-hand the service and sacrifice involved in protecting our great country. 

This weekend, and especially Veterans' Day on Monday, let's all pause to contemplate -- and appreciate -- in our own way the dedication and courage of America's military defenders, past, present and future.

It's the least thanks we can give for those who give so much of themselves for us.
