The December 2013 of The Beacham Insider takes note of the first year-over-year increase in metro Atlanta’s single family detached housing inventory in seven years. The Insider predicts what this will mean for Atlanta real estate in 2014 as well as what are the most desirable features of a home in today’s market. The Insider also demonstrates why it’s important for sellers to list in the MLS system and to list in January to get a jump on the rest of the market.
In reviewing the performance of the Atlanta real estate market over the last two months, the Insider notes that sales of single family detached homes were down -4% from the same period a year ago while prices were up 17%. Condo sales were up 7% while condo prices were up 33%. Top performing markets included Midtown, Sandy Springs and Vinings.
