It’s important to note that while both the Tax Assessed Valuations and the Auto Valuation Models can be instructive about home values, these numbers may not be keeping pace in real time with what is actually occurring in the market at any given time. The AVM, values are calculated more recently than the Tax Assessed Values, but they are based largely upon a statistical sample and do not reflect special individual home features, upgrades or undocumented unique characteristics. The true market value is dependent primarily upon the recent most comparable sales, and then appropriate adjustments made.

The best way to obtain the current value of your home without paying for a full appraisal is to contact your Real Estate Broker and ask for a current CMA.  If you don’t have a Broker you prefer, or one are currently working with, my partner Jana Salmans or myself would be very happy to assist you.  Just give us a call or e-mail us, our contact information can be found at the top main menu and we will be happy to assist you.

This neighborhood has historically had a very low turn-over rate.  So far in 2013 there have been no sales through 4/28/2013.  Looking back from 2012 and the previous 5 years the average annual turn-over rate for homes here is about 2.5% which equates to an average time home owners here will likely stay is about 40 years! 

Reviewing the average number of homes sold here between 2003 – 2007,  shows that there were an average of 3.4 homes sold/year equating to an annual turn-over rate of 5.2%.  So during this period, the average time a homeowner would be expected to stay here was about 19 years!

During the high growth real estate boom years from 2003 to 2007, nationally the average time home owners would stay in a home was about 6 years.  Nationally as the housing market declined staring in late 2007, the subsequent 5 year period saw average times home owners stayed in a home increase to about 9 years, which is about where we are currently.

Home owners stay in the homes they buy in Vinland Crest at least 3 times longer than the national average, and currently it looks like that number has increased to about 4 times longer!  There must be something pretty great about living here!
