So much has changed in our country in the first few weeks of the new year.  We have a new administration in office.  Wall Street broke 20,000 for the first time in its history.  Interest rates have gone up slightly.  Let's see how the January 2017 North Metro Atlanta Home Sales fared.

North Metro Atlanta Market Summary

In its first meeting at the end of January, the Federal Reserve decided to keep prime interest rate at 0.75%.  It does, however, expect to raise rates at least three times this calendar year.  If President Trump's major infrastructure bill creates a higher demand for US goods, inflation may go up.  When inflation rises, rate hikes follow.  The next time the Federal Reserve meets will be in mid-March.  If you're interested in purchasing a North Metro Atlanta home, contact your North Metro Atlanta REALTOR®.
