Savannah area real estate market sees higher prices, fewer sales, increased inventory in November

SAVANNAH, Ga.Last month, the Savannah area residential real estate market saw increases in prices and inventory while sales decreased. While there were fewer closed sales, homes averaged 43 days on the market and sellers received 98.4% of their list price.

“While the number of homes sold and new listings are gradually returning to more normal levels, we continue to see strong demand, with homes selling quickly and prices pushing upward,” said Janet Howard, Savannah Multi-List Corporation (SMLC) 2022 Board President. “Inventory is still in seller’s market territory, and sellers are still receiving nearly 100% of their asking price. Overall, our market is demonstrating strength and consistency as we move into winter, when we typically see a seasonal slowdown.”

The inventory of homes for sale in the Savannah Area REALTORS® service area increased 31.2%, from 1,313 to 1,722. New listings decreased 23.4%, from 876 to 671. The months supply of inventory, which is an estimation of the time it would take for all homes on the market to be sold, jumped 61.5%, from 1.3 to 2.1. A months supply of inventory of less than five months is typically considered a seller’s market.
