Greater Atlanta's Market Summary

In Greater Atlanta's 11 counties, the median sales price for September rose by 2.5% as compared to September 2022. This is the second consecutive month of price increases in Metro Atlanta, based on data from the First Multiple Listing Service. Most homeowners have lower-interest mortgages, resulting in limited inventory entering the market, which is keeping our prices high.

Georgia continues to out-perform our nation's averages ... and there is more good news for our state! ➡️

Georgia No. 1 State for Business for 10th Consecutive Year

Area Development, a leading executive resource covering corporate site selection and relocation, has named Georgia the best state in the nation for opportunity!

Meet Bruce Guinn

Silverton Mortgage

I have been in the finance/mortgage business for over 30 years. My initial financing experience was as a banker at a private bank. I gained much exposure/experience in advising clients & coming up with lending solutions. In June 2002, I left my private banking position & made a transition to work solely on mortgages.  I have closed well over 4,000 mortgage loans. I find myself to be very client-focused & now doing loans for my clients' children. My goal is not only to advise but to make the process a smooth one for our client. I want to not only be professional but earn their trust. This way our clients can focus on their home search and feel confident that their mortgage is in good hands. If you need help with your mortgage loan, contact me today!
