The Spring 2018 issue explores the paradoxical nature of the Atlanta real estate market entering 2018; on the one hand, some homes come on the market and sell quickly while others linger, even expire from the MLS as 2,000 listings did on Jan. 1. This phenomenon has been described as a market where buyers are “buying off the top,” and we explore why in this issue. We also discuss the factors that come into play in multiple offer situations which become more common this time of year. We also have a contest to pick the winning city for Amazon’s HQ2 from among the 20 finalists. Entries that pick the correct city will be entered to win a drawing for a $500 gift card to Buckhead Life Restaurant Group.
