Market still strong
Atlanta and East Cobb’s housing market remain strong. Prices are still climbing. The number of days on the market has fallen precipitously, and the number of closings is up a significant amount on a month to month basis. While inventory is picking up, we are still only showing an average of one month’s inventory of homes available for sale in East Cobb.
For now, buyers are getting incredible mortgage rates of 2.75% on average. Despite the ups and downs in the economy brought on by the pandemic, buyers remained determined to buy homes. According to Core Logic, home price gains reached the highest annual growth in the US since 1979.*(Core Logic) The current low mortgage rates and the improving labor market has helped many perspective buyers achieve home ownership this year. However, CoreLogic projects home price gains may slow over the next 12 months as demand moderates and for-sale inventory rises.*(Core Logic)
