Atlanta Market Sales Prices Continue to Rise!

Average Sales Price – Residential-Detached

Great news for sellers; sales prices in the Atlanta Market continue to rise! Although, the market is beginning to show signs of becoming more balanced between a seller’s & buyer’s market. We currently have 7% more single family homes listed than in June 2018. Additionally, there were 2% fewer closings for the same period. That’s good news for buyers; more choices! Sellers don’t fret; we still have an inventory shortage in most price ranges, there’s just more competition.

Homes that are priced right & show well are still selling quickly. An experienced Realtor®, like me, will give you the right advice on staging & pricing. Believe me, after 18 years as a Realtor® I know what buyers like & where they focus. Always happy to share that expertise with you, all you have to do is ask!

Wondering about sales in your neighborhood? Delighted to answer your questions about that too! Can’t wait? Just follow this link…

School Supply Drive

The Keller Williams Realty First Atlanta Culture Committee has organized a School Supply Drive.  We have Adopted a Class out of Scott Elementary School in NW Atlanta, Atlanta City Schools.  Here is a note from the teacher and below is the list of supplies needed.  Anything you can dontate would be greatly appreciated!

Our Classroom and School:

    I teach 1st grade at Scott Elementary School.  We are part of Atlanta Public Schools and located in Northwest Atlanta.  Our population is about 93% African American and 7% Hispanic.  100% of our students come from low-income families and qualify for free breakfast and lunch.  Our school is in the process of becoming STEM certified and we challenge our students daily to stretch their creativity and problem-solving skills through hands-on activities and working as a team.  I love working at Scott Elementary.  While there are many challenges that accompany poverty and academic deficits, our students are exuberant, intelligent, kind, and brave.  I learn new things every day from my students, but the biggest lesson has been resiliency.  They are experiencing things at 6 and 7 years old that I could never have imagined at that age, yet they come to school everyday ready to learn, grow, and spread their joy.  

     My school does the best they can to provide for their students, but the truth is there’s simply not enough.  Not enough money, time, manpower, or energy.  But through the help of people like you, we are able to give our students a new narrative.  At the beginning of my first year at Scott, my classroom did not have a rug.  My students were gathering for morning meeting and center work on cold, hard, dirty tile floors and doing so without opposition or a single complaint.  My principal, who is truly amazing, told me that he would try his best but that there was just not enough in the budget to afford a rug right now.  I took the matter into my own hands and, through the generosity of strangers on donorschoose.com, my students were given a beautiful, plush, large, new rug!  My student’s response to their gift was shock.  They couldn’t believe they mattered enough to be given something so nice.  This is the difference we can make in these students lives!  Yes, helping them to learn how to read and do math (which is incredibly important) but also helping them to learn that they are worth more than they could ever imagine.  That is how we give young people in our country a new story and start to break the vicious cycle of poverty and illiteracy.  

    I can’t thank you enough for even being willing to help!  I haven’t met my students for the 2019-2020 but I can assure you they will ecstatic to receive any and all supplies.  Thank you for being a huge part of their success in school and helping them learn that they are deserving of the whole world.
