The fall market began before fall even started this year for Beacham & Company, REALTORS. The number of sales and dollar volume sold by the fi rm’s agents was up 25%in September, making it the best September ever in the history of the 11-year-old company and keeping it on track for another record sales year. Like the broader market, Beacham was boosted by sales in Buckhead and Cobb County, where the East Cobb and Smyrna areas remain as hot as they have all year long. The sales picture for the entire Atlanta market in September was not as rosy, however. The number of attached and detached single-family home sales in the five-county metro (Cobb, DeKalb, Forsyth, Fulton, and Gwinnett) was down 6.8% in September from the previous year, while closed dollar volume was down 1.8%. Areas that have been strong but weakened in September include Ashford Park, Dunwoody, and North Fulton County.
