Now would be a good time to list before the election. Washington may be slowing the properties to be put on the market by bank foreclosures. Why? With less "lower cost inventory", home sales will increase, showing a stronger economy and an improvement. Without a show of the economy, the current President will not have a chance for Re-election. Next year, all of those foreclosures that have been bottled may just be released again.

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.

As bank owned inventory burns off, this is as good a time as any to list your home. This is definately a window of opportunity as the banks may be releasing product in the near future. The Milton area is different from other areas in that is targets a pretty specific type of buyer; affluent, educated, with a desire for space, great schools and accessability to Atlanta and Alpharetta.

I'm closing on a house in the 30004 zip code on Wed., located in the Stonebrook Farms subdivision off of Thompson Road.

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.

With 89 Pending Sales and nearly 300 Solds in the past 6 months in zip code 30004...Alpharetta/Milton is doing very well. It might be helpful to narrow that down to the specific price point that you are interested in, b/c these numbers are based on ALL sales. It's a great location with excellent schools. Alpharetta is one of the most sought out areas of North Metro Atlanta right now...and the Milton area of Alpharetta is even more desireable the rest of it.

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!

If you break it down to just 30004 the numbers are not quite as good for single family detached but better for single family attached.

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

Looks like about 156 single family DETACHED homes have gone under contract in the last 30 days in 30005,30004,30022 and 30009 combined. With 1398 active listings that's about 1 in 10 homes going under contract....pretty good for this time of year.

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.
