Karen HatcherA Word from 2022 Atlanta REALTORS® President Karen Hatcher:

“The rising interest rates have slowed sales as this is the third straight month with a decline in excess of 20% over the previous year,” reports Atlanta REALTORS® Association President Karen Hatcher. “Inventory is now up 39% and we have 2.1 month’s inventory which is the first time we have been above 2 months supply in two years.”

“Prices remain positive with the Median Price up 12% over the past year continuing a trend of double digit increases in price for the past two years,” says Hatcher. “We are still in a sellers market so sellers who waited or are ready to sell, can still realize positive gains over last year.”

“Metro Atlanta’s economy is still strong with a growing population so as inventory begins to rise we expect to see a return to a more historically normalized market.”
