It’s a question every real estate professional hears almost daily in 2022:  Should I wait to buy a home? Clients are concerned that a slowing economy will impact real estate values. They wonder if prices will come down, and they hope for a great, once-in-a-lifetime deal just around the corner. They see rising interest rates and high home prices, and they worry about a housing “bubble” akin to the one that popped in 2008. Fortunately, there is some very good news for both buyers and sellers as 2022 rolls on.

Today’s Market is Strong

While the news media sells fears of a crash, the facts on the ground in the Metro Atlanta area do not support it. When the recession hit in 2008, there were too many homes on the market – a glut of inventory. Today,

More new homes are coming soon to a great Gwinnett County location! Early this summer, two beautiful homes built by J. Scott Properties will be released for sale at Ivy Springs, a well-established community in Bethlehem, Georgia.

Quiet, Convenient Location

Ivy Springs is situated near the Gwinnett County line, close to Dacula and an easy drive to Athens. It is minutes from GA-316 and is convenient to Hwy 78, but still removed from much of the traffic and noise in busier parts of Gwinnett. There are great restaurants, shopping centers, parks and schools all within easy reach of this great community. Opportunities here are extremely limited, so it's one you don't want to miss.

Are you currently renting and trying to decide if homeownership is right for you? The decision to rent a home or buy one can be especially hard in today’s housing market. After all, home prices have skyrocketed over the past two years and so have rental costs. Could your money be better used in the investment of a home?

2021 was the year of SOLD. So many Peggy Slappey Properties clients saw their homes sell over asking price, with minimum days on the market, many to all-cash buyers who never saw the home in person.

Now that 2022 is here, the question on everyone’s mind is: Will home prices come down this year?

There is great news predicted for housing in the coming year. According to the experts at Realtor.com, home prices are expected to keep rising, but at a much slower
