The Augusta Chronicle reports that historic Augusta homes are being neglected “like forgotten tombstones – choked with weeds, their exteriors battered by the elements.” Many neighborhoods are filling up with a new sort of tenant — homeless people living in abandoned bank-owned properties. A number of these properties will inadvertently catch fire and literally go up in smoke. Even if you have a soft spot for older homes, it’s a volatile market out there right now.
The Augusta Homes Market
Real estate website Trulia says that the average price for existing Augusta homes has dropped down to $58 per square foot. The median sales price for 2011 was $84,900, which represents a decrease of 5.6 percent in value. The question buyers are asking themselves right now is this: “Do I really want to live in a neighborhood of vacant Augusta homes or a community that has depreciating value?”
The New Augusta Homes Market
Here at Bill Beazley we say you deserve better! Why pay $58 per square foot for an old home that needs work, has squatters living next door, and is far from your work… when you could pay $60 per square foot for a BRAND NEW, never-lived-in home? We should also mention that this brand new Augusta home is in a safe community of appreciating value that also happens to be near all the amenities you could possibly want, including places of employment, highway corridors, top-notch schools, restaurants, Fort Gordon, the airport, recreational facilities and retail shops. When it comes to Augusta homes, the real value lies in semi-custom builds, which have come down considerably in price over the past few years. Did you ever dream that you could own a brand new home starting from $130,000???
