August Comments

ARA Market Brief
Demand: August residential sales were at 5,062, a decrease of 9.7% from the previous year.

Price: Average and median sales prices continue to gain traction and outpace 2017’s figures, with positive gains. The median sales price in August was $268,000, an increase of 8.1% from last August. The average sales price was $335,000, up 9.5% from the previous year.

Supply: Atlanta area housing inventory totaled 14,812 units in August, a decrease of 2.8% from August, 2017. New listings totaled 5,208, up 5.2% from August, 2017 and down 2.9% from the previous month. The month’s supply over a 12-month period increased to 3.0 months.

A Word from 2018 Atlanta REALTORS® President Bill Murray: “The most significant challenges facing the housing market stem from insufficient inventory, where new home construction is not keeping up to meet demand. I expect that over the coming year, home sales will remain robust with an anticipated rise in inventory that will help moderate price growth.”
