Real estate in Metro Atlanta

Some trends we should draw attention to:

  • ARA reported that Metro Atlanta home sales were flat in October, and indeed, GAMLS’s numbers show small increases in the area’s most populous counties; however, sales remained strong in Paulding and Douglas counties.
  • Price growth, meanwhile, was relatively strong – six counties posted double-digit price increases, with four seeing price gains of 16-plus percent.
  • There were interesting inconsistencies between sales and prices. In Cherokee County, for instance, flat sales contrasted a 15.38-percent price increase, while in Douglas, both sales and prices were up double digits.
