East Cobb Market Report August 2021

Here is another look at the number active listings of East Cobb single family homes by month and year. Think of active listings as a flow. New listings are coming into the system and closed sales are flowing out. The data is captured at the end of each month. However, the most recent month I show here can look a little different next month as it takes about 10 – 15 working days for all the closed sales to be reported. This gives an apples to apples comparison for inventory over time.

2021 is still a strong seller’s market with the lowest inventory levels in the past 5 years.
