  • The number of units sold decreased 10% year over year, and decreased 24% month over month

What does this mean for you?

Buyers, the decrease in active inventory listings in the Athens market means you have a smaller selection to choose from that before. However, the decrease in the number of units sold is a plus for buyers. Fewer sales could indicate an opportunity for buyers to negotiate better terms!

Sellers, the decrease in the number of active listings means that there is less competition in the market. The average number of days home spent on the market decreased from 57 days last year to 37 days this August. The decrease in days on market signals a positive trend in the local inventory turnover rate! Sellers are able to sell their home faster than before. The number of homes sold decreasing month over month is simply indicative of the unprecedented time we are going through. The August market trends indicate that we are in a seller’s market right now!
