Lone Tallahassee Neighborhood Bucks Housing Trend
I have been conducting home appreciation studies on many Tallahassee neighborhoods, hoping to find some that are doing well despite the tough market that we are in. Most Tallahassee subdivisions have seen depreciation (from the peak of the market) in the 15 to 20% range, and reduced unit sales by greater than 60%. But this morning, I stumbled upon a Tallahassee neighborhood that has thus far bucked part of the recent trend.
The Royal Oaks Subdivision is located just off of Thomasville Road on the Northwest side of Killearn Estates. Home values have thus far appreciated quite nicely over the past 20 years, with growth in each of the last three years as well! This is the first Tallahassee neighborhood that I have found that has done this.
Of course, like many other subdivisions in Tallahassee, Royal Oaks has seen the number of home sales decline greatly. There has been an average of about 15 home sales in Royal Oaks each year for quite some time, only to see it fall to 6 last year and only 1 thus far in 2009. Most likely, prices are holding up because home owners are more entrenched and do not need to move. Regardless of the reason, it is nice seeing a real estate graph showing appreciation!
Royal Oaks Home Values Record Consistent Appreciation
This first real estate graph shows the number of home sales in Royal Oaks (red bars) declining, but the average price per square foot of a home in Royal Oaks (green field) to be rising!
Average Home Price In Royal Oaks Still Rising?
With only 1 sale thus far in 2009, Royal Oaks doesn't have enough "data" to claim to see higher average prices. In 2008, the average price of a home sold in Royal Oaks dropped for the first time since 1998, indicating that as sales started to slow, buyers were choosing the smaller, more affordable homes in Royal Oaks.
This next real estate graph shows home sales in the Royal Oaks Neighborhood (red bars) and contrasts them with the rising average sales price (blue field).
