Home Sales In Killearn Lakes Unit 3 (7 Oaks)
When I wrote the blog about Tallahassee's Hottest Selling Neighborhoods last week, I listed the neighborhoods and their previous year's sales figures. According to my list, Southwood had the most sales, with several of the Killearn Communities following closely behind.
But as many of you know, Killearn Lakes and Killearn Estates actually have a lot more annual home sales than were shown in the report. Unlike Southwood, where all of the homes in the community are recorded in the "Southwood Subdivision," the communities of Killearn have many "sub" subdivisions. Because of this, Killearn Lakes (with over 20 different recorded subdivisions) only finishes second on the list with 91 home sales in 2008, when in fact it has significantly more annual home sales.
Killearn Lakes Unit 3 (7 Oaks)
When I first got into the business in 1991, Unit 3 of Killearn Lakes was in its prime. It was featured as the hottest neighborhood in town on many lists, and people were flocking to Killearn Lakes to check it out. It has been a strong selling neighborhood ever since its debut, but it is not immune to the current market conditions.
The following real estate graph demonstrates that 7 Oaks has seen the same drop in unit sales and depreciation as the rest of the Tallahassee real estate market.
The blue bars show that 7 Oaks was averaging about 60 home sales per year, but has seen 40 or fewer since 2006. Home values peaked at just over $130 per foot, but have since dropped to $110 per foot and most likely are still going lower.
7 Oaks In Killearn Lakes Has Strong Long-Term Appreciation
Like many Tallahassee neighborhoods, 7 Oaks has done well over the long term. Had you purchased a home in 7 Oaks in 1991 and sold it last month, you would have realized an annual appreciation rate of nearly 3.5%. The following graph shows how a 1991 purchase has appreciated over time.
Killearn Lakes Unit 3 Home Appreciation
7 Oaks has clearly seen depreciation over the past 3 years, but the graph shows that the general direction over the long haul is up. I like to point this out because we are in a negative cycle right now in real estate, but history shows that with population growth comes long-term appreciation.
