Atlanta Real Estate: Year-End Stats, Comparison and Forecast for 4 Metro Atlanta Counties
Atlanta has realized steady increases in value for the last 3 years.
It takes anywhere from 40% to 70% less time to sell a home in Atlanta.
This statistic, combined with low interest rates, make the sellers market.
Due to demand, low inventory and competition, this number is strong.
This statistic speaks to the increased number of buyers in the market.
In summary Atlanta's statistics show a very strong 2021 real estate market. Predictions indicate the overall outlook for 2022 remains positive albeit with growth slowing down to a more moderate pace.
What does this mean for Sellers? Atlanta will remain in a seller's market during 2022 as home prices are projected to go up. Experts predict that inventory is also expected to increase. That means that your window of opportunity to stand out won't last forever. Think about selling now rather than waiting for our spring market.
What does this mean for Buyers? As inventory increases this year it should ease the competition and multiple offers. Interest rates and home prices will continue to rise which will affect what you can afford. It is in your best interest to enter the market sooner rather than later while affordability is still in your favor.
If you are thinking about entering Atlanta's robust market, I know the market and inventory conditions and will give you the support to make informed decisions. If you would like an accurate estimate of your home's value, I can help. If you have no plans to enter the market but would like to stay aware of your neighborhood activity, I would be happy to set you up with automatic updates!
