Today, Case Shiller, who tracks real estate activity accross the USA, reported a second consecutive month of increase in prices for the 10- and 20-City Composites. I believe the Atlanta market will improve as the US market improves so I am glad to see this. For the Atlanta market to improve the #1 issue at this time is jobs - and getting the state and Atlanta's unemployment rate down. Once that happens consumer confidence will rise and people will buy homes.
That said, I am seeing pretty strong sales activity compared to last year right now. Yesterday I tried to set up showings for 10 homes in the 175-200K price range and 4 were under contract -
