**Huge lack of inventory – Not enough homes for sale**

Literally trending month after month, Atlanta and Metro Atlanta Markets are experiencing sales decreases mostly due to lack of options and speculation. Median sales price had a bump-up from last month and up over nine percent from 2016.

  • Since September 2017 median sales price ↑ 2.3%
  • Since October 2016 median sales price ↑ 9.3%

Property values will continue to rise. One significant factor is an abundance of buyers (high demand) and record low properties for sale (low supply). New construction is not exempt and continues to struggle, month after month, to keep up with buyer demand.

Comparing April 2016 to April 2017:

  • Units sold ↓ 7.52%
  • Active listings ↓ 12.09%

There is less than three months of inventory in most Metro Atlanta Markets. This means that if all builders stop building today, in two months time, all available homes for sale will be gone. No more homes for sale! A balanced market is between 5-7 months of inventory.

It is still very much a sellers market. There is an abundance of frustrated and underwhelmed buyers. Some of which choose to postpone their search. Others end up settling. After several attempts at ‘highest and best’ bidding wars and worse yet, failed appraisals while under contract, the truly unlucky buyer is paying more than what they originally planned for and settling for something less than ideal.
