This will show as a false positive, just like a stock will do. So, sell it now or at the peak during mid summer and buy "low" at the spring of next year or summer of next year. It may be a pain for the family, but renting after you sell for a year, may be the best bet to gain some of that equity most have lost since 2008. Just my $0.02
Buying a home is not just to make the family happy, I look at it as a financial one as well.
Everyone else who answered gave statistical information. I'm just wondering why you asked... are you interested in selling your house located in this area? If so, the key to selling remains the same as always (regardless of the market activity) you need to have a house that shows better than your competition and priced competitively.
To answer your question...yes, houses are selling in the Milton/Alpharetta, GA 30004 area.
Although I live in East Cobb/Marietta, my office is in Roswell, close to the Alpharetta/Milton area.
I'd be glad to send you a list of the homes currently available that meet your criteria so you can get an idea of what's out there.
Have a great day!

Single family attached 29 out of 235 under contract ( about 1 out of 8) and 14 closed sales
Single family detached 57 out of 705 ( 1 in 12.6 ) and 33 closed sales
Also have a least 96 closed sales...reporting lags up to 2 weeks on closed sales so that number could be considerably higher.
Numbers for single family attached are 56 under contract out of 498 listings or about 1 out of 9 condos/townhomes under contract in last 30 days and 23 closed sales...again reporting of closed sales lags a couple weeks so there are likely more than this number.
