- Looking in the rear view mirror~ ahh…. the market has finally turned!!
Ahhh… hindsight is everything! They say we won’t know when we hit the bottom of the market until we look in the rear view mirror~ well look here! I saw this moving truck today in my rear view mirror and had to laugh! Yes, I think we have definitely hit bottom and we are now on our way back up!!!

Typical to spring, the market heats up here in Atlanta, but it’s been a long while since we have had listings fly off the market in record days! The Under $200K category is strong. Buyers are shying away from foreclosures and short sales due to the uncertainty of actually getting a contract to close! It seems most foreclosure deeds are not of record, so closings are being delayed over and over again. Buyers are frustrated. Short sales are really long sales and unless a home is an “approved short sale” from the banks then you, the consumer may have months of waiting for the banks response on whether they accept or reject your offer. Consequently those homeowners who have a non-distressed house to sell are getting great activity! If the house is staged well and maintained well, as well as realistically priced, then you can count on it selling within 45 days. Yhea!!!
I had the good fortune to contract on 2 listings in the past 2 weeks before we could get them listed in the data base! If you want more information contact the WOW Team of Keller Williams (#1 company in Atlanta) We will help you SELL your home !
