There were 144 Lake Hartwell homes sold in the second quarter of 2019, up 41% over the first quarter of this year. The available inventory of active homes is down 16% over last quarter, pushing the absorption rate below 6 months (4 months) for the first time in over 12 years. The absorption rate is the number of of months it would take to sell the existing inventory at the current rate of sales, and any number below 6 months indicates a seller's market. By contrast, vacant lake lot sales have remained flat over the last year, with almost 3 years of available inventory. One bright spot for lot sales was a larger acreage tract which sold for $450,000, but the average lot price this quarter was $114,000. Our team has listed 45 properties this year, and we want to ensure that our buyers are the first ones to know about new properties as they become available.
