East Carmel Neighborhood Summary For 2011 (Trails At Avian Glen)

The Trails, like many east Carmel neighborhoods showed promising growth in 2011.  There were 8 closed sales in 2011 versus 5 in 2010.  The high sales price for the Trails in 2011 was $421,000 ($430,000 in 2010).  The low sale in Avian this past year was $342,000 ($327,000 in 2010).  The average sale price in 2011 for the Trails was $374,563 (versus $359,111 in 2010).  In summary the Trails homes have one of the more in demand sets of floor plans in east Carmel.  If a home has proper updates in the Trails, it can usually demand great returns in the overall market. If you'd like to see the entire itemization for the Trails in 2011 you can email us HERE.  

East Carmel Neighborhood Summary For 2011 (Avian Glen)

Avian's closed sales in 2011 reflect a better overall market.  In 2011 there were 14 sales (7 in 2010) with a high sales price of $470,000 compared to $$448,000 in 2010.  The low Avian sales price in 2011 was $295,000 versus $291,000 in 2010.  The average sales price actually slipped a bit for a specific reason.  In 2011 the ASP in Avian was $357,664 versus just over $378,000 in 2010 HOWEVER the sample size and units sold in '10 were very skewed because of fewer units at aberrational high pricing.  Fear not Avian.....2011 was good year for your values and 2012 is well on the way to being strong as well.  If you'd like a complete itemization of closed sales in 2011 you can email us HERE.

East Carmel Neighborhood Summary For 2011 (Lakes At Hazel Dell)

The Lakes At Hazel Dell also showed some great recovery in 2011 with 13 closed home sales (13 also in 2010).  The high sale in 2011 was $402,000 ($385,000 in 2010).  The lowest sale was $255,000 in 2011 ($202,000 in 2010).  The average sale price in 2011 was $343,392 versus 2010 when the average sale was $321,773.  For the Lakes it was all about value growth versus numbers of homes sold.  Lower end inventory was weeded out in 2010 and based on that we should continue to see growth in the Lakes in 2012.  If you'd like a complete itemization of homes sold in 2011 in the Lakes you can email us HERE.  

East Carmel Neighborhood Summary For 2011 (Woodfield)

Woodfield has been one of the more active neighborhoods over the past several years despite the slowdown.  There was still definable growth in 2011 which is a great sign.  In 2011 there were 13 closed sales (10 in 2010).  The high sale was $525,000 in 2011 ($515,000 in 2010).  The low sale in Woodfield in 2011 was $428,569 ($418,050 in 2010).  While Woodfield didn't show the level of recovery in 2011 that some east Carmel neighborhoods did, that was primarily due to the fact that 2010 was not nearly as challenging for Woodfield as it was for other areas.  If you'd like a complete itemization for all Woodfield closed sales for 2011 you can email us HERE.  

East Carmel Neighborhood Summary For 2011 (Bayhill)

Bayhill recovered wonderfully in 2011 moving from 6 sales in 2010 to 15 sales in 2011.  The high sale for 2011 was $735,000 ($650,000 in 2010) with the low sale for 2011 being $359,000 ($300,000 in 2010).  The average sales price in Bayhill was $533,077 increasing from $437,400 in 2010.  ALL of these are very promising numbers as we move into 2012. OF NOTE....the average sales price increases DO NOT mean the neighborhood has grown in value by over $100,000 per home, obviously.  We have simply seen more closed sale activity and with better sales prices than the previous year.  For a complete itemization of all sold homes in 2011 in Bayhill please email us HERE.
