The Harvest is Plentiful in Metro Atlanta…

Real Estate Agent with Rental Relocation

Rather than saying the harvest, let's say the houses are plentiful here in Metropolitan Atlanta.  With over 100 thousands homes on the market here in Metro-Atlanta, it is a perfect time to be a home buyer.  For those who are unaware, metropolitan Atlanta covers approximately 20 counties in estimated 60 mile radius around the city of Atlanta.  Whew!!! That is huge and we are growing everyday. 

Are you thinking of moving to Metro-Atlanta?  Well now is the time to do it.  On average Atlanta's real estate market is still reasonable despite how large we have become.  With the housing market being so plentiful, buyers have the opportunity to really search for the home that fit their needs.  Depending on the motivation of the seller, you have more negotiating power than ever before. Therefore, you have greater potential to get a great deal on a home.

I wanted to give you some examples of what the market looks like here in Atlanta/Fulton County: (all single family homes)

  • In the Atlanta area, this would include Downtown, Buckhead, Sandy Springs and Midtown areas; the average active home on this market is 4bedroom 3.5 bath home for average price of $765,181. This area is in the heart of the city.
  • In the south Atlanta/ Fulton county area, which includes College Park, East Point, Union City, and Southwest Atlanta areas; the average active home on this market is 3 bedroom 2 bath home average price $208,874.
  • In the North Fulton area, includes Alpharetta, Roswell areas; the average active home in this market is 5 bedroom 4.5 bath homes at an average price $676,244. 
  • In the East Atlanta/Dekalb areas, includes East Atlanta and Decatur, the average active home is 4bedroom 2bath average price $380,425.

Please note these are average prices.  You can still purchase a nice home at $150,000 in some areas and well into the millions in others.  As I mentioned earlier that there were approximately 20 counties that make up Metro-Atlanta, so prices get even better as venture outside the city. 

If you are thinking of moving to Atlanta or looking for a home in Metro-Atlanta to buy, whether single family home or town home/condo, go ahead and start the process.  I would be happy to email you listings of homes that match your style and pricing criteria.  If you need information about financing, I have resources that can help you with financing your new home.  Or, if you would like more information on different areas of Atlanta, feel free to contact me at
