Karen HatcherA Word from 2022 Atlanta REALTORS® President Karen Hatcher:

“Inventory is up 32.8% since October 2021 but this has not had a huge impact on the available properties as we still only have 2.2 month’s supply,” reports Atlanta REALTORS® Association President Karen Hatcher. “The median home price has been adjusting as inventory has increased but sellers are still experiencing a 7.9% increase over 2021 prices.”

“A positive for buyers is that 'no contingency offers have subsided' and we are also seeing sellers contribute to closing costs again,” says Hatcher.
