Average Sale Price of a North Metro Atlanta Home - 2012 to 2016

What to Expect in 2017's North Metro Atlanta Market

The Federal Reserve increased the prime interest rate to 0.5%-0.75% last month.  Financial experts believe we should expect three more increases by year's end.  The increase in the prime interest rate typically influences mortgage rates.  In fact, we have already seen them bump up to around 4.5% after the Fed's announcement last month.  If you're interested in purchasing a North Metro Atlanta home, you need to do it now.  If you wait, both the sale price and your interest rate could go up.  Contact your North Metro Atlanta REALTOR® to get started today.
