2020 Annual Roanoke Valley Market Snapshot

As predicted in January of 2020, last year became the Roanoke Valley’s most record-setting real estate year in history. 2020 home sales in the Roanoke Valley hit records in sales volume and average price, and beat the highest numbers on record from 2005. But in the run up to 2005 the high volume was inflated greatly by faulty lending practices in the “sub-prime” category, which is not the case today. I predict that seller’s homes will sell briskly in 2021, and buyers will get into multiple-offer competition on fairly-priced homes. Here’s a recap of three key indicators for the past 20 years (Total Sales, Average Price, and Days On Market). Also keep scrolling to see National Trends in the US. Please be sure to share this with your friends and family. Enjoy!
