Look out for Leaves

 

We’ve had quite a bit of rain and falling leaves lately. Soon your roofs, gutters and walkways will have a thick coat of wet leaves. It’s important to clear those leaves off of your roof and gutters to prevent damage to your roof as well as avoid wood rot and other potential home maintenance issues. Even if you have gutter guards; debris still gets in the gutters which can lead to back up. It’s also a very good idea to pull leaves away from your house and foundation to be sure water flows away from the house instead of toward it.  Another beneficial item on the list is to add extensions to your gutter downspouts to insure water goes as far away from the foundation as possible. Heed this wise advice and you’ll thank me later because your home will be warm, dry and cozy this winter. You’ll also have less maintenance chores in the Spring.

Looking for a new home with less trees & leaves, more space, less space or different locale? It would be my pleasure to help! Just contact me today to get started. Can’t wait? Just follow the link below to find your dream home:

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.
