A Word from 2020 Atlanta REALTORS® President Jennifer Pino:
"Recently, the National Association of REALTORS® recognized Metro Atlanta as one of the Top 10 markets in the US, and November's activity certainly supports this recognition. Despite the available inventory declining to now only 1.6 months of supply, sales remain strong as closings are up nearly 10% over 2019," reported Jennifer Pino, President of the Atlanta REALTORS® Association. "In this market, it is extremely important for prospective buyers to secure financing in advance of the home search process as many properties are receiving multiple offers and do not remain on the market for very long."
"Interest rates are forecasted to remain relatively flat for 2021 and with inventory remaining low, we expect this strong market will continue well into 2021."
