What does this mean for you?Discussing the Market Updates for the month


Buyers, the recent increase in active inventory listings in the Atlanta market means you have a larger selection of homes to choose from. The increase in the number of units sold is a plus for buyers.

Higher year over year figures indicate more buyers were able to find what they were looking for compared to the previous year. Buyers today are able to find their dream home in more desired and sought after locations.


Sellers, the decrease in the number of active listings year over year means that there is less competition in the market. The average number of days home spent on the market decreased from 44 days last year to 33 days this September. This lower number of days signals a positive trend in the local inventory turnover rate! This market update shows that 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.

We have a few programs including the Guaranteed Offer Program that allows you to skip the process of showings and open houses by offering a competitive cash offer for your home.

This program also provides a safe alternative to selling your home, keeping foot traffic low during these unprecedented times.
