Want to buy a house? Don't wait around.
The housing market nationally continues to to recover. Released this week, year over year, there is an 8 percent increase in the sale of existing homes. Even more startling is the sale of new homes, with an increase of over 29 percent. The average price of a home nationally increased to $187,400, a 9.5 percent increase when compared to 2011 levels.

In light of the city of Lilburn considering a foreclosure registry, we are dedicating this real estate column to foreclosures in the area.
There are an estimated 4,500 homes in Lilburn, and a number of them are foreclosed properties. According to data from RealtyTrac, Lilburn sits behind Lawrenceville, Snellville, Norcross and Buford, in that order, when it comes to foreclosures. However, the city is located in a county with the highest foreclosures rates of any county in the state. In July, the date for which most recent information is available from RealtyTrac, the state saw 1 in 201 homes in foreclosure. Lilburn was 1 in 214 homes. Often it means that buyers can select many homes at random to buy for extremely reduced prices. However, those reduced prices can spell problems for home owners in the area. Not only can a foreclosure reduce selling prices of surrounding homes, …

What's more expensive? A home or a Hyundai?
Bet you never thought you'd ever hear something like this: You can buy a home for less money than it takes to purchase a Hyundai. OK, so Hyundai has come out with a new luxury model called the Equus, designed to compete with models from BMW, Lexus and others. But it's still a Hyundai, right? According to Autotrader.com, a 2011 Hyundai Equus Ultimate will run you at least $65,400 (including destination charge). So that gave us an idea. Using www.realestate.aol.com, we looked for homes in the Lilburn area that are cheaper than $65,400. Here are five (there are more) of them.
