Pooler Georgia Real Estate Market Report – 2nd Quarter 2013

Over the last month around the Pooler Georgia area from I16 to North Pooler stretching from Bloomingdale to the city limits of Savannah, there been over 560 homes for sale of which 233 of them have been sold. Out of all the homes for sale 159 have been foreclosures or bank owned homes. This figure is down remarkably so over just the last couple of years. We are seeing more owner/seller’s, more short sales rather than foreclosures, and more properties gaining a profit after sale.

The median home sales price was based on 110 home sales compared to the same period one year ago.
