What Does This Mean For You?
We’re living in what experts are calling the “Bargain Belt” – the Southeast is showing some dynamic growth, but the cost of living is still relatively low. Industries continue to relocate to Atlanta which brings a natural influx of homebuyers, and this trend shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon. Buyers, while interest rates are still low, don’t miss out on this time to purchase your next dream home!
We’re also seeing signs of a natural summer market. Kids are out of school, which explains the increase of available homes. Buyers, an increase in inventory means more options in your search for the perfect home, so start searching today! And while the average days on market is a little higher than last year, sellers don’t let this worry you! People are always still looking to purchase a home. Timing is everything, so start the listing process before the Summer season and bustling market come to a close!
