A Word from 2022 Atlanta REALTORS® President, Karen Hatcher:

“The median and average sales prices continue to trend higher with a 15.1% increase in the median price and a 13.9% increase in the average price over 2021,” reports Atlanta REALTORS® Association President Karen Hatcher. “We are still seeing multiple offers within a few days for properties that are priced appropriately.”

“Sales are trending lower compared to last year with the rising interest rates being the main factor,” says Hatcher. “Despite this lower trend, the economic activity in the metro area coupled with domestic migration has kept demand strong with median days on the market at 7 and average days at 16.”

“We reached our highest inventory level since October 2020 with a 34% increase to 1.9 months, however we are still well in a Seller’s market. Seller’s still have much to gain with the median sales price above $400,000 and the average price near $500,000 helping Metro Atlanta’s real estate market continue to thrive.”
