A SUMMARY FOR SELLERS: Despite some areas experiencing price drops and longer days on the market, the tight inventory ensures that sellers continue to maintain the upper hand in the real estate market. In Metro Atlanta, homes are still receiving multiple bids and selling swiftly. It remains evident that appropriately priced homes that show well consistently attract buyers and sell at or close to the list price.

A SUMMARY FOR BUYERS: As the market stabilizes, buyers may find increased leeway in terms of concessions like waiving home inspections. However, given the limited inventory, it remains crucial for buyers to have their financing prepared to swiftly make an offer once they encounter a prospective home.

National Association of REALTORS® Predicts

Atlanta Housing Market Has the Most Potential for Growth in the U.S.

Atlanta looks to be the housing market with the most potential for growth in the new year, according to researchers at the National Association of REALTORS®. There are three main reasons:

  • Atlanta has greater housing affordability than comparable cities.
  • Our population is growing more rapidly.
  • 20% of renters in Atlanta can afford to buy a median-priced home.

Atlanta also boasts a robust and growing job market, where many major technology companies, such as Apple, Microsoft and Visa, are relocating from the West Coast. Read the full article …

National and Local Real Estate Forecasts for 2023

Housing Experts, Polls, and Opinions

“Will house prices go down in 2023? Depending on who you ask, the forecast for 2023 is mixed. Most experts in the housing industry predict less buyer demand, lower prices, and higher borrowing rates. Rate increases, along with a shortage of availability, have pushed many purchasers to the sidelines. Home prices may fall slightly, but not drastically as they did in 2008. Some believe that the housing market will continue to outperform compared to the pre-pandemic.”

Read More from NORADA Real Estate Investments

“Metro Atlanta’s housing market has witnessed three turbulent years. But there was consensus about the area most poised for growth in the next year.”

Read More from The Atlanta Business Chronicle

“We polled eight industry insiders for their 2023 mortgage rate predictions and answers varied widely, from just 5% to over 9% for the 30-year fixed rate.”

Read More from The Mortgage Reports

Predictions for 2023 are just that, and while economists and analysts tend to focus more on nationwide trends, local real estate agents and other professionals have a finger on the pulse of the current trends in your area.
