Hot Atlanta Housing Market

Last Thursday night I placed my house for sale on MLS and FMLS.  Within hours realtors were scheduling viewings of our home.  Today, four days later, I am sitting in a Dunkin Donuts shop waiting for showing #13 to end.

People may have other opinions but I think the housing market, at least in our area, is heating up.  Here is why:

1.  There are very few high demand houses on the market.  Those houses are the ones that have 3+ bedrooms, a good neighborhood, and are fairly new with brick siding.  The brick siding really matters!

2.  People are moving here or have moved here.  This is a great place to live – newer community, lots of business HQ’s, safe, and open.

3.  The price is going up.  Demand drives prices and North Atlanta is not building enough houses to keep up with the move ins and they cannot build them for the selling price of a 10 year old home.  Builders are priced out and land is very limited for now developments.

Keep watching.  I am about to sell my house for a good price!   When I win, I am going to shout, I am going to Yankee Stadium!

    Update: House sold with a contract in just 4 days.

    Here are 4 insights into selling your house.

    1. When you buy your house, think about selling it. Make sure you purchase a house you can sell.

    2. Get your house in top shape to sell. The BEST way to do that is to KEEP your house in top shape.

    3. People who looked at our house said, “This is a beautiful home”. Make it neat and squeaky clean.

    4. Sell it like you sell your car. Be honest with the buyer and give them confidence in what they are buying.

    5. Negotiate in good faith. Let the buyer know you expect a certain price and tell them why.

    6. Be flexible at closing…you want the house to sell rather than having to make another payment.

    7. Be your own realtor. It is easy…like selling your car.
