Metro Atlanta Real Estate Market Report: February 2013

Atlanta Real EstateMarch 2013 Atlanta Real Estate Market Report shows a unique market. For many years we have been experiencing a huge inventory of unsold homes, and now we are in desperate need to get more homes on the market. In February 2011 there were 16,785 properties for sale. In February 2012 there were 10,042 properties. This is a significant drop in available properties and is causing a shortage of quality properties for buyer to choose from.

A Good Example: I was with a client who is looking for home between $100 -$140,000. She wanted to look in the Kennesaw Mountain highschool area. Given her price point, there were only 10 homes for her to choose from. Compare this to a year ago when she could of had 30-40 homes to choose from.

Atlanta Real Estate Market Report Statistics for February 2012 compared to February 2013
  • Inventory is (-40.2) lower than last year at this time
  • The number of homes that are pending (under contract) Has increased substancially (+12.3 percentage points) – Market pace increased likely due to
    much lower supply for both distressed and non-distressed properties
  • Foreclosures are down (-5 percentage points) from February 2012
  • The median sales price in substantially (+28.1%) higher than February 2012, continuing a trend of higher prices
  • The days-on-market are lower (-30.0%) than February 2012 due to lower supply and higher demand
The Big Picture

The market has improved a lot over the last year. The banks are still holding inventory and my guess is that they will continue to release at a pace that will not saturate the market. The market is going into the peak season for buying and selling homes (April - August). During this time, we will be able to get a good picture of the strength of the real estate market and to see if the numbers keep improving. The next few months will tell us a lot about where we are.
