October Market Update: Atlanta

By Mark Spain Real Estate

The month of October is rapidly coming to a close! With all the excitement of Trick-or-Treating and the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, let’s not forget to pay attention to the changing market. Mark Spain Real Estate has summarized the key trends of Atlanta’s October market. Our goal is for you to stay well-informed on current trends!

Mark Spain Real Estate compiles the market update for Atlanta in October

The Hard Facts- Atlanta Market:

  • The current median list price is currently residing at 357k, up slightly from this time last year
  • Inventory has shown a very slight increase from last month and currently is at 11,880
  • A home’s average days on market is currently 42. This shows a slight increase from this time last year

What Does This Mean For You?

Sellers, an increased amount of days on market is simply indicative of the time of year. The 4th quarter of the year can show less sales than the 3rd quarter. However, we see many people close on their homes in December as they prepare for the new year. November is still a great time to sell so we can expect a large amount of activity.

Buyers, inventory continues to increase which means you have plenty of options! You’ll continue to have ample time to make a decision on your dream home with the current days on market.

Overall, the upcoming month of November is a great time to take advantage of the Atlanta real estate market!
