Like total sales, the average sale price for a North Metro Atlanta home went up as well.  Last March, Buyers paid an average of $313,085.  In March 2017, they paid an average of $338,483, 8.1% higher.  While prices continue to rise, Buyers typically pay less than the list price.  In fact, North Metro Atlanta Buyers paid an average of 97.8% of the list price (or 2.2% under asking).  The average time a North Metro Atlanta home remained on the market before going to contract stayed exactly the same as last March: 53 days.

What Buyers Can Expect

Last month, the Federal Reserve raised Fed rates to 0.75% to 1%.  Their next meeting won't take place for a couple more weeks (May 2nd and 3rd).  At that time, they will announce whether another rate increase is due.  The state of the economy factors greatly into whether or not to increase rates.  When those rates go up, mortgage rates tend to follow.  So, if you want to lock in an interest rate now, you need to start your home search right away.  Contact your North Metro Atlanta REALTOR@ now to get started on finding your next dream home today.
