Summing up 2012 Wake Forest, NC Real Estate

Home sellers, buyers and owners of Wake County real estate – the full 2012 year end Wake Forest, NC real estate recap is here!

2012 was a solid year for Wake Forest real estate.  894 homes closed during 2012 at an average of 97% sales to list price, and in an average of 122 days (approximately 4 months) on the market… not shabby at all.2012 Wake Forest Real Estate Recap

The pie chart shows the breakdown of:

  • new active listings (homes that went on the market)
  • total active listings
  • closed listings
  • homes that have gone under contract

during the whole of 2012 for single family detached homes located within Wake Forest, NC.

The “1% Active”, as we mentioned in our previous market reports, is a tad confusing.  This percentage includes only those Wake Forest homes that entered the MLS as a for sale home before January 2012, and sat on the market through the duration of the year (a high % would be alarming).

While the pie chart is a little arbitrary by itself, we include it to help paint the full picture for the stats below.
