The first flowers of spring have just started to bloom in Metro Atlanta, but home sales are already hot. It is arguably the best real estate market our area has seen in more than a decade. If you are waiting for the traditional spring selling season to arrive before you list your home, you’re in luck – the busy season is already here!
1. Homes Are Spending Less Time on the Market
Buyers are highly motivated right now. They know that choices are slim, and when they fall in love with a home, they are acting quickly to make it their own. The average number of days on the market does vary according to location. If you’re curious how quickly homes are selling in your town, contact us at 770-271-5555 to speak with a highly qualified agent from your neck of the woods.
2. The Number of Homes for Sale is Still Low
Inventory across Metro Atlanta remains low. New home construction is booming but can’t keep pace with demand. Putting your house on the market now gives buyers another option, one they may jump at in order to avoid losing the deal. You may even spark a bidding war, driving the sales price of your home up further with multiple offers.
3. Home Prices Continue to Rise
We are experiencing the high point of the market right now, where low interest rates, low inventory, and reasonable prices are driving fast sales. Experts are predicting that home prices will continue to rise throughout the year, eventually causing sales to slow. Act now to take full advantage of the “sweet spot” our market is experiencing.
