2014 Oakhurst Wine Crawl | Decatur GA
Kerry Lucasse, Your Nest Atlanta Real Estate Consultant (eXp Realty - Nest Atlanta Team)

2014 Oakhurst Wine Crawl in Decatur GADecatur's (very) popular Oakhurst neighborhood kicks off the first of it's many annual events on February 22, 2014!

The 2014 Oakhurst Wine Crawl in Decatur, GA will run from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm and is one of our favorite events, probably because of the casual atmosphere and integration of many of the local businesses in the Oakhurst Village and along College Avenue.  At least two dozen businesses in Oakhurst will open their doors and serve wine from around the world.

Part of the causal vibe is that the wine crawl doesn't have a start or end point.  You just pick up your official "crawl" glass at pop in at each of the local businesses on the list.  If you don't want to walk from the Village to College Ave, the fabulous FREE Fur Bus runs back and forth every 15 minutes.  

If you haven't been to the Oakhurst Wine Crawl before, please know that it SELLS OUT FAST.  A limited number of tickets are sold each year (online) and are usually about $30 to $35, so as soon as they are available for sale, we will definitely let you know.  You can also watch for the announcement on the official Oakhurst neighborhood website at http://oakhurstgaorg.ipower.com/

 

UPDATE (2/19):

Wine crawl tickets are on sale at the Universal Joint and the Oakhurst Market for $25 in advance or $30 on the day of the event. Tickets are limited! Oakhurst Wine is Rain or Shine and you must be 21 years or older to participate.

Oakhurst Decatur Real Estate Trends Report | 2013
Kerry Lucasse, Your Nest Atlanta Real Estate Consultant (eXp Realty - Nest Atlanta Team)

Oakhurst Decatur Real Estate Report for 2013

Oakhurst Decatur Real Estate trendsThis little firecracker neighborhood in the City of Decatur just keeps on selling!  After reviewing the 2013 sales statistics for Oakhurst GA, we discovered some very interesting information:

AVERAGE SALES PRICE 

The average home sales price in Oakhurst up 10% from 2012 and more than $100,000 from the bottom of the market (2010)

TIME ON MARKET

When looking at how long it took to sell a home in Oakhurst GA, we found that 45% of the Oakhurst homes sold in less than 2 weeks - incredible!!!

On average, Oakhurst homes tool 54 days to sell.  The numbers are a bit skewed because several builders were listing homes in MLS before they even broke ground on the new home.  Needless to say, that increased the average time to sell a home in Oakhurst.

In 2013, homes sold 35% faster than they did the previous year and almost 2x FASTER than in 2010.

LISTING PRICE TO FINAL SALES PRICE

The average listing price to final sales price percentage in Oakhurst was almost 98% in 2013 and 43% sold at or over the listing price.

 

*** If you are thinking of selling your home in Oakhurst, read the sentence above again!  If you price your home correctly the first time AND have an agent who is going to market and stage your property, you have a very good chance of selling at or over the listing price.

Oakhurst GA Real Estate Market Update | 1Q 2013
Kerry Lucasse, Your Nest Atlanta Real Estate Consultant (eXp Realty - Nest Atlanta Team)

Oakhurst GA Real Estate Market Update | 1Q 2013

 

The Oakhurst neighborhood is located in the City of Decatur and is one of Intown Atlanta's most popular neighborhoods -- and one of the most sought after for residential real estate, thanks to the active neighborhood association, dozens of annual events and the charming Oakhurst Village with shops, restaurants and outdoor patios.  Learn more about the Oakhurst neighborhood and see all the current homes for sale.

It's no surprise that the Oakhurst GA real estate market is doing VERY well this year -- increased demand, low inventory and low, low interest rates.  We do think you will be suprised at some of the recent stats from our Oakhurst home sales report... 

 

HOME SALES

The number of homes sold in 1st quarter is the highest in more than 6 years.  It's 40% higher than the same time last year!

*** This number may actually be higher, as there were quite a few homes that sold before they were officially listed in the MLS.

 

Oakhurst GA real estate and home sales statistics

 

AVERAGE SALES PRICE

In 1Q 2013 the average sales price for a single family home was $440,820 -- again, this is the highest in more than 6 years (possibly more).  We can contribute a portion of the increase to the new construction home sales in the neighborhood.

 

LISTING PRICE TO FINAL SALES PRICE

This is incredible -- on average, homes sold at 99% of the asking price and almost half of the homeowners in Oakhurst received the full price or more for their home.

 

TIME ON MARKET

40% of the homes in Oakhurst sold in NINE days or less.

 

TIP FOR BUYERS

For those of you looking for a home in the Oakhurst area, be prepared to make a full price offer for Oakhurst homes as most sell for 99% to 104% of the listing price.  Also, we highly recommend that you work with a local agent who can keep you updated on "Coming Soon" listings before they hit the market -- we don't want you to miss out on your dream home!

 

FOR SELLERS

If you are considering selling your home this year and are curious about the current value, request a complimentary home valuation or learn more about the Nest Atlanta team home marketing (and selling!) services.  You can also call me anytime at 404.432.1844.
