Townhouse Market: Will Lack Of Inventory In Center Grove Cause Rise In Values In West Grove?

I was looking over the inventory of Center Grove townhouses last night and wondering whether the lack of inventory east of 32nd Avenue will cause a rise in values for townhouses located west of 32nd Avenue (also known as the West Grove).

The townhouses in the West Grove have typically sold at a discount compared to those on the other side of 32nd Avenue.  However we are starting to see similar asking prices for townhouses regardless of location.  There hasn’t been a West Grove townhouse sale in the $500,000’s since 2011, but there are currently 9 townhouses for sale and 8 of them are listed over $500,000.

If you look at the current pending sales for townhouses in the West Grove, 5 out of 17 are listed above $500,000.  One factor in whether these sales get to the closing table will be whether or not appraisors know the difference in values between the two areas.  In this case, a lack of knowledge by the appraiser could benefit the buyers of these properties.

As always, I will keep you posted.
