Luxury homes over $1,000,000.00 in North Georgia show a 10-year inventory and the inventory is increasing according to yesterday’s AJC. Less expensive second homes in the under $500K and the $200K are beginning to sell and many are selling for cash. Small parcels of land are being purchased at good prices for future building. New building permits for Gwinnett county in 2010 were only about 1,100; not many for a county of 850,000+ people. In so many words,this is a great time to purchase a home or a second home in North Georgia!
