I am a native of Georgia. I've lived here all of my life. I grew up in the Atlanta area but visited grandparents in Villa Rica almost every weekend. I now live in Villa Rica. The reason you find so many homes that are for sale here is because during the housing crisis over the past few years, many homes went into foreclosure status. Carroll County was one of the hardest hit counties in Georgia. Although you will find many homes for sale almost none are actually available. The homes in Carroll County become Under Contact within minutes of going on the market. Buyers have flooded this area because they can get so much more house for their money. This will not last much longer, so if you are interested in Buying in the Carroll County you will need to act quickly. Property values are now on the rise and the price advantage of the distressed market is now fading away since so many homes have Sold. I would love to help you locate a property in this county or any other county in the suburbs of Atlanta. Please contact me anytime at 770-845-1093. I work by appointment only.

Partnering with a lender who will provide special services can help speed the sales in many cases. Depending on location and price of your home 100% financing may even be available to qualified buyers.

This is an old question but the recent answer has brought it back to the top of the pile. The question really is timeless. A home that has been on the market for over a year without selling is clearly overpriced. It may be indicative of a seller that doesn't "get it" but I'd be willing to bet that this seller has learned the hard lesson of the negative effect of time on price in a declining market.
