The December 2012 housing numbers are in with some interesting numbers for home sales in the City of Anna. Consider the following comparisons of home sales in Anna for December 2012 over December 2011 as reported by the Collin County Association of Realtors®.
2012 +/- 2011
New Listings 22 +22.2% 18
Closed Sales Reported 15 -11.8% 17
Listings under contract 14 +7.7% 13
Average Sales Price $142,886 +9.6% $130,418
Median Sales Price $129,900 -0.3% $130,283
% Original List Price Received 96.4% +3.5% 93.1%
Days on Market until Sale 124 -74.8% 71
Inventory of Homes for Sale 73 -27.0% 100
Months Supply of Inventory 3.3 -44.2% 5.9
Those are some intriguing numbers that appear to be moving in both directions.
For sellers the best news is the increase in % of list price received (up 3.5%) and the lower number of homes for sale (-27%). It did take considerably longer to sell a home though with the days on market until sale increasing to around 4 months in December 2012 as compared to approximately 2 ½ months in December 2011.
The increase in number of new listings is good news for buyers with more homes hitting the market in December 2012 over December 2011 but that is somewhat offset with the inventory of homes available decreasing 27% and the number of months supply decreasing 44.2%.
Still, Anna is a great place to land and buyers do have a good selection of both existing/established homes and new construction in Anna. There’s something for everyone and it will be interesting to see what the spring holds for home sales in Anna.

I always ask for a preapproval up front and some people are so SCARED
"“I have known Diane for many years and when it was time to sell my mother’s home and move her to a senior living retirement community, I called Diane to list the house. She was very professional, yet sensitive, to my mother and took the time to explain the process in detail., and answered all questions to our satisfaction. She kept us informed every step of the way and was very responsive to anything we needed. The entire process was smooth and efficient and we were thrilled with the outcome. I highly recommend Diane –she is a joy to work with!”"
