2014 vs 2015 SML Market Report

Waterfront Homes

It is so refreshing to see an increase in the number of homes sold this year, making this the third year in a row of improved sales. The eleven percent decrease in days on the market indicates that newer listings in general are selling. Currently, inventory is at its lowest point, but not surprising for this time of year. We expect to see a surge of new listings in the spring and another year, at least, of pricing pressure due to inventory outpacing demand.

Water Access Homes

We are happy to report a 16% increase in number of sales over last year, however there is still a lot of pressure on pricing.


Again, more good news to report! A 26% increase in the number sold. The inventory is high, however, with almost a year in absorption rate. Also notable is the one percent decrease in the average selling price, meaning we may have finally hit the bottom.

Waterfront Lots

While the number of sales has decreased, the average price of those sales has increased. It is a great time to buy a lot here at Smith Mountain Lake and the good news is that we may have cleared out the distressed sales, getting back to more normal market conditions.

The major home buying and selling season is in full bloom along with the beautiful spring flowers. Despite inventory remaining low within many areas across the country, the Smith Mountain Lake real estate market is experiencing a wide selection of property inventory and sellers looking to make a deal.

Market Headlines from Quarter 1 2015:
With elevated inventory levels, buyers have many options and competition is strong. Without a home being properly prepared for sale and priced according to market conditions the market won’t recognize the property.

It’s important to understand what you want. With so many choices available on the market today, there are many options to consider and choices to make. No matter what segment of the market that you are looking in, it’s a great time to buy!
