A Word from 2018 Atlanta REALTORS® President Bill Murray: “The economy is very healthy and job growth is holding strong, keeping the demand for homes robust. However, the Atlanta market needs more new and existing homes available for sale to allow home prices to moderate enough for potential home owners to continue to have choices available.”
