A Word from 2022 Atlanta REALTORS® President Karen Hatcher:
“The Median Price remains strong in Metro Atlanta at $408,000 which is up 13.6% over this time last year,“ reports Atlanta REALTORS® Association President Karen Hatcher. “This continues a trend of year over year double digit increases every month since August 2020.“
“On a positive note for buyers, inventory is now up nearly 33% over last year,“ says Hatcher. “While sales are now down, this still represents just under 2 months of homes available for sale which keeps us still deeply in a seller’s market.“
“Demand is still strong but cooling slightly with the median days on market at 10 and average at 20. This is historically extremely low and overall, the Atlanta Market remains strong. With our population growth, it’s still a great time to sell.“
