Here’s the latest sales data from the Atlanta Board of Realtors:

Atlanta REALTORS® Market Brief

August 2018 Edition

The Atlanta REALTORS® (ARA), the largest association of its kind in Georgia, released its August 2018 Market Brief on residential housing statistics in metro-Atlanta. The Market Brief, compiled by First Multiple Listing Service (FMLS), provides the only regionally focused synopsis of monthly sales and home prices for single family residential properties. This summary covers 11 counties: Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Paulding and Rockdale.

August Comments
Demand: August residential sales were at 5,062, a decrease of 9.7% from the previous year.

Price: Average and median sales prices continue to gain traction and outpace 2017’s figures, with positive gains. The median sales price in August was $268,000, an increase of 8.1% from last August. The average sales price was $335,000, up 9.5% from the previous year.

Supply: Atlanta area housing inventory totaled 14,812 units in August, a decrease of 2.8% from August, 2017. New listings totaled 5,208, up 5.2% from August, 2017 and down 2.9% from the previous month. The month’s supply over a 12-month period increased to 3.0 months.

A Word from 2018 Atlanta REALTORS® President Bill Murray: “The most significant challenges facing the housing market stem from insufficient inventory, where new home construction is not keeping up to meet demand. I expect that over the coming year, home sales will remain robust with an anticipated rise in inventory that will help moderate price growth.”

The data in this report was compiled by First Multiple Listing Service (FMLS). For more information on details of this month’s report, please contact the Association at 404.250.0051.

*Each month, the numbers reported for the previous month are updated to reflect additional recordings.

In this real estate market, a good agent is very important when buying or selling a home.  See what my latest client had to say about his selling experience below:

Review Rating: 5

“Debby Braun provided great real estate service when I wanted to sell a condo. She suggested steps to take to prepare the condo for showing, including referring me to a great and reasonably priced painter. She was organized and professional throughout the process. She is very knowledgeable about her business and able to clearly explain answers to any questions a client may have.”

Know of an available home that fits the criteria below?  We’ve seen everything on the market and my buyers haven’t quite found exactly what they are looking for.  Here’s a brief description of what we need:

 

Roswell, Alpharetta, Sandy Springs, Dunwoody or East Cobb area

  • Townhouse or Condo (prefer townhouse)
  • Minimum 2 BDR/2 BA, 3 bedrooms is even better
  • Covered parking would be nice to have but not necessary
  • Up to $200,000

 

If you or someone you know has a match for these clients please contact me ASAP! It will help you get to your next spot faster & you’ll save time, money & energy because you won’t have to get the house in showing condition. If this is a match for you I can help you find your new home too! Can’t wait to see what’s out there? Just follow this link to find your dream home:

The Atlanta Market is doing fine!

08/06/2018
Leave a Comment

Over the past week many people have expressed concern over what’s happening in California; to the point that they are becoming Chicken Little & think the market is falling. The Atlanta Market is doing fine! That point is very clear when comparing today’s market with the market 9 years ago, just after the crash. Clearly the number of homes sold & sales prices have gone up since 2009. Homes are selling much faster too. The most important # in the above chart is % of Distressed Properties (Short Sales & Foreclosures).  We’ve gone from 40% (almost half) of home sales being distressed properties to less than 1.5%. Enough said, the numbers speak for themselves.

 

Of course, I’m always happy to answer questions as well as share specific info about your neighborhood. All you have to do is ask. Can’t wait? Follow this link: http://www.debbybraun.com/search_atlanta_mls_listings.asp

It’s that time of year again…

Property Tax Notice of Assessments are now out in many counties.

2018 Property Tax Assessments are in the mail. Many Counties are still trying to fill the gap from losses during the crash. Some homeowners are seeing significant increases in the tax assessor’s opinion of their property value. If that happened to you, don’t worry, you can appeal the tax value. However, you must act quickly; all appeals must be filed within 45 days from the date of the Notice of Assessment.  The notice will have instructions on how to file your appeal & I’ll be happy to help you with comps for your appeal, all you have to do is ask.

If tax value isn’t a concern & you just want to know what homes are selling for in your area I can help with that too! Just contact me TODAY for the answer. Can’t wait? Just follow this link:
