Buyers should expect these trends to continue for the remainder of the year in the Greater Atlanta area. Buyers who are actively looking for a property should understand that time is not their friend. Buyers should be prepared to act quickly when a property is found to avoid losing the sale or paying a higher price.

What Does This Mean For Sellers?

Both attached and detached home prices have climbed year to year, however, detached homes have climbed 4.7% year to year, while attached homes are up only 0.2% year to year.
