Kirkwood Atlanta Home Sales Update for October 2011 It was a pretty quiet month for Kirkwood Atlanta home sales, with only 7 homes selling in October. The average home sales prices were up from the previous quarter, with the average sale price up more than $20,000 ($197,296 versus $228,700).

How Long Will it Take You to Sell My House Oh Wonderful Listing Agent? - 11/26/11 01:30 PM
In Atlanta, homes that are priced correctly the first time they are listed sell in 24 days (on average) for about 97.2% of the listing price. Homes that price too high stay on the market for almost 200 days and sell for about 75% less than the original listing price. It is so important to create a sense of urgency with the buyers in this market. If your home is in good condition in a good location and priced fairly, buyers will want to jump at the opportunity to purchase your home! EXCELLENT POST from a fellow ActiveRain agent in Virginia...
