    Bulloch County usually has it’s own market trend due to our rural area and the unique cities and towns within it. There is a mix of a strong farming community, higher education, and distribution industry, throughout.

    The listings that have sold in the month of June averaged only 83 days on the market with an average sale price of $185,741. Chatham County has a similar days on the market timeline, however the average sale price is higher at $241,087. Waterfront and Downtown Savannah properties are going to inflate the sale prices creating it's own unique trends.

    With these data points, sellers in our area should be positive about their house moving from “active” to “under contract” around or less than 3 months. Especially if the market price is lower than the $180’s. Last year at this time the market dipped but gained traction again in August meaning most homes went under contract in July.
