ATLANTA MARKET REPORT (January, 2011)
The number of homes sold was down according to Trendgraphix when compared to January a year ago.

As the graph indicates, 41,516 units sold in the month of January, 2011 which is down approximately (-) 0.05% from January 2010.

homes: ATLANTA GA MARKET REPORT - February 2009 vs. February 2008 - 03/27/09 06:35 AM
Some good news to report on a national level:
USA Today reported a rise in home sales for February. And, according to an article by Walter Molony for Realtor.org, existing home sales rose 5.1 percent nationally (Existing Home Sales Rise in February; March 23, 2009). While Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist reports  first time home buyers account for HALF of all home sales in February. And, much of that has to do with the current First Time Home Buyer $8K Tax Credit passed by Congress recently. 
In the same article by Walter Molony: "In the South, existing-home sales rose 6.1 percent to an annual … (0 comments)

homes: STATE OF THE MARKET - Spring, 2009 - 03/25/09 08:28 AM
Now is a great time to buy....if you are an informed buyer! I know there is a lot of apprehension in the real estate market nationwide. And, for the Atlanta market attitudes are no different. But the savy buyer will recognize this limited window of opportunity and literally....make their move!  Particularly if you are a first time home buyer.....what a fabulous chance to become a homeowner AND put $8K in your pocket.
Everyone is talking about the First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit. If you purchase a home during 2009 and you have never owned a home; OR, if you have not owned a home in … (0 comments)

homes: SUWANEE GA - 2008 ANNUAL REPORT - 01/26/09 02:35 AM
Like everywhere else, Suwanee has felt the impact of the down turn in the economy; and, as a result, the growth which has been experienced in Suwanee for the past 20 years, is also experiencing a temporary slow down:
 Residential building permits totalled 71 in 2008 - just less than half the number as in 2007 (153).  Commercial development  buidling permits were 12 compared to 25 in 2007. High commercial and office vacancy rates. However, Suwanee seems to be able to weather the storm by staying financially fit.  The city's reserves are strong and in order to maintain financial stability, while still … (0 comments)

Baby it's cold outside! And, many would say the same for the 2008 Atlanta real estate market.  The 2008 real estate market will have its own place in history....and, our memories.  But now it is time to put 2008 up on a shelf and look forward, with optimism, to 2009. 
If you are buyer or a seller and you are trying to read the crystal ball to determine when is the best time to buy or sell, here are some predictions from the CEO of Prudential GA Realty (this was also shared in my earlier post Atlanta Market, October, 2008 Recap).
