Another month come and gone. Goodbye July—we’ll miss your sizzling sales, but not your sizzling heat. Speaking of sales—let’s walk through the local real estate market from last month. That’s right: it’s time for the highlights of Lee County’s July 2021 Residential Report, from the Lee County Association of Realtors. Get comfy—we’re ready when you are!
A relatively even volume of new listings
The volume of new listings in Lee County appears pretty evenly-balanced from July 2020 to July 2021. That time last year, the market featured 230 new listings. Then, in July 2021, that number only slightly decreased to 223 new listings.
Decrease in average days on the market all across the board
Good news if you want to sell! Home sellers have seen a decrease in the average days on the market, compared to last July. Back then, Lee County homes spent an average of 86 days on the market, as opposed to 37 days last month.

A big difference in condo inventory
Wow! In the past year, condo inventory has faced a big drop—with a caveat. Back in July 2020, there were 95 Lee County condos in the market, with 95 in Auburn and 0 in Opelika. So, while the volume of Auburn condos on the market has decreased drastically, the volume of Opelika condos on the market has risen slightly.

An impressive increase in total property sales
