Atlanta Has A Housing Shortage! It’s a Seller’s Market

Are you Looking to Buy a Home in Atlanta and Can’t Find One? Well, that is because Atlanta has a housing shortage! It’s a Seller’s Market in most areas and price points in the Metro Atlanta Area.

Having a shortage of homes on the market creates higher competition for the most desirable homes on the market. Bidding wars for these homes creates a huge edge for a Seller in this market!

Some driving factors of Bidding Wars in a Seller’s Market are:

  • Low Inventory
  • Location of the Property
  • Price
  • Condition of the Home
  • School District

In the real estate business it is a price, location and beauty contest!  If you have a home that is priced right, is well maintained and shows well, and is in a desirable location you will see a lot bidding wars for these homes and they will fly off the market!

For a Seller this is great news! If you are thinking about Selling your home, now is the time to do it!
