Atlanta Market Brief

February 2017

Fresh from our friends at the First Multiple Listing Service (FMLS) February numbers are looking good; sales prices continue to rise! The Spring selling season has gotten off to a super start & we are expecting 2017 to be a very good year! Inventory remains low with 3.1 months’ supply of listings, which means it’s still a seller’s market; especially in the <$500,000 price ranges. If you or someone you know is considering selling CONTACT ME TODAY to learn more about how you can take advantage of this market’s opportunities.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!

St Patrick’s Day…the one day a year you can get away with pinching someone:)

Impress your friends this year with these silly St Patrick’s Day Facts:

  • Saint Patrick was actually born in Roman Britain at the end of the 4th century AD and taken to Ireland by slavers when he was a teenager.  The exact place of his birth is debatable as some say Scotland and some say Wales but, either way, he’s Irish now.
  • Saint Patrick is said to have banished the snakes from Ireland but in fact, Ireland never had any snakes as the weather was too miserable for the cold-blooded reptiles.  The banished snakes were thought to be symbolic of the pagan druid priests with whom Patrick might have had a few issues to iron out.
  • The global corporate-relations director of Guinness says 5.5 million pints of Guinness are sold on any given day, but this figure rises to an astounding 13 million on St. Patrick’s Day. IBIS World also reports that Saint Patrick’s Day 2012 brought in $245 million in beer sales.
  • Due to strict laws on the curtailment of sales of alcohol on Holy Days in Ireland, from 1927 to 1961, the only place a thirsty Irish person could legally get a drink on Paddy’s day was at The Royal Dublin Dog Show. One TD was reported to complain that it was a grand occasion “except for all the dogs.” At the time, the church and state were worried that the Irish would drink too much on the day. Turns out they were right. Oh well.

The chart above clearly demonstrates we have plenty of housing in the $1,000,000+ range. Sellers in the $750,000-$999,999 will be happy to hear they’re approaching a balanced market (6 months of inventory).  And sellers in the <$500,000 ranges are deliriously delighted about the strong sellers’ market. Of course, everything varies by area &/or neighborhood. Always glad to share specifics about your neighborhood all you have to do is ask. Can’t wait to find out?
