A Word from 2020 Atlanta REALTORS® President Jennifer Pino:

"As expected, the housing market in Atlanta experienced a significant reduction in sales for April with a 25% decline from 2019. Overall, sales through the first four months of 2020 are still equal to the same time period last year," said Jennifer Pino, President of Atlanta REALTORS® Association. "Total sales in May should continue to reflect a reduction from 2019 but with the removal of the Shelter in Place Order at the end of April, activity has rebounded quickly and pending sales project a strong summer market."
