Market Trends of McKay Landing
Of course, one of the best things about McKay Landing is its affordability. Unlike a lot of other resort-style communities in this region of the state, you don’t need to be a millionaire to live here. That being said, the houses for sale are truly gorgeous, and in no way reflect the affordability of the neighborhood poorly.
The median sales price for a home in McKay Landing is currently $195,000, a full $200,000 less than relative neighbor The Broadlands. Unsurprisingly, the median list price for homes in the area is right near the sales price–because they’re so affordable to begin with, there’s not much wiggle room with negotiation.
All this isn’t to say, however, that there aren’t luxury homes available in the McKay Landing area, because there certainly are.
In the last six months, 17 houses were sold. Currently there are about 30 listings on the market. This isn’t a gigantic community, so you won’t usually see more than two or three dozen homes for sale at any one time. It takes a little longer for houses to be sold here, but reports predict all 30 homes will be sold within the next 10.5 months. This makes turnover fairly quick, which is great to know if you ever decide you want to leave McKay Landing.
But we think if you move there, you’ll be staying there for a long time to come.
