Forbes Magazine and the Atlanta Business Chronicle recent articles listed the Atlanta metro area as #13 of the top 25 US cities to buy a home in today's economy. The research and articles confirm that Atlanta's growth, opportunities and available housing provide buyers with great investment options.
The research focused on the average price per square foot, frequency of real-estate transactions and distribution of sales-activity throughout numerous large metropolitan cities. Some relative stability or improving stability in the housing market combined with the lower home prices has been attracting more buyers in many areas including Atlanta. Multiple offers are becoming common places for some of the distressed homes (short-sales and foreclosures) on the market and this is helping to reduce inventory.
If you have money to invest or the ability to obtain financing, then real estate is readily available as an excellent investment for the future. The wide variety of incentive programs for tax credit and buyer assistance make this market even more attractive and the metro-Atlanta area has proven to be a good location.
