Metro Market Overview January 2015

In 1st Quarter Last Year (2014), the real estate market (nationally and locally) experienced a dip! Coming off of a HOT 2013 market, everyone was a little shocked (including me)! It could have been the extreme winter that kept homebuyers from pulling the trigger. Remember Snowmaggaden 2014! Or, it could have just been an unexplainable blip in the radar. Whatever it was, 2014 turned out to be a great year for the U.S. housing market as 4.93 million homes were sold while national home prices appreciated by 5.8%. Not to mention, interest rates remained at historic lows making housing affordable!

So, you’re wondering… How does January 2014 compare to January 2015?

Let’s check it out…

  • 13% More Metro Atlanta Homes for Sale this January
  • 4.4% More Metro Atlanta Homes Sold this January
  • Metro Atlanta Foreclosures Down 2.6% to 6.3%
    • 5-10% distressed sales is normal
  • Metro Atlanta Short Sales Down 8.3% to 4.7%
    • Theoretically, by 2016, all homes should be back above water
  • 3.8 Months of Supply remains very stable year over year
    • Anything under 6 months of supply is a sellers market
  • Metro Atlanta Median Original List Price is up 10% to $229,900
    • Still rising due to low supply
  • Metro Atlanta Median Sales Price is up 11% to $215,000
  • Metro Atlanta Median Sales/List Price Ratio remains around 95%
  • Metro Atlanta Median Days on Market is up 21.5% to 62 days on market

All in all, January was a great month! 12,773 Metro Atlanta homes sold and prices were on the rise! At The Peters Company, we experienced the exact same thing! We sold more homes and took more listings in January than we did in January 2014!
If you’ve been thinking of buying or selling and just want to chat about the market in your neighborhood, we’d love nothing more than to hear from you! We can give you a free and highly accurate opinion of value. Give us a call at 404-419-3619 today!

Congrats, Travis and Kim on your new Morningside home!

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

Travis&KimCongrats, Travis and Kim on your new Morningside home! Travis and Kim are expecting a new baby in November, so they decided to move back “home” to Atlanta to start their family. Although they were technically relocating, they knew the areas of town well and wanted to be near the Highlands and Morningside. Of course, “in-town” neighborhoods are a hot commodity in Atlanta and after one visit to look at homes, they were worried that they wouldn’t find “the one” in time for their move. However, one fateful Saturday morning a great house came back on the market and Jennie and Kim rushed to see it. After a quick “Facetime” session with Travis, they couple made and offer and snagged one of the best in-town properties we have seen! We are so grateful for Travis and Kim’s positive attitude during a quick and stressful move, and we cannot wait to meet the new baby this fall!

Congratulations to Ben and Erin on purchasing a fantastic home in Drew Valley!

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

Erin&BenCongratulations to Ben and Erin on purchasing a fantastic home in Drew Valley! Ben and Erin knew that they wanted to call Brookhaven home, so their search began this summer with Jennie. We joked that they “attracted” water because we kept finding great homes, but they were in the flood zone! We couldn’t in good conscience have them purchase a house that wasn’t “perfect” so the search continued, and the day they walked into their new home we all knew it was a perfect fit – and not in a flood zone! It also came with a special bonus – The Peters Company’s very own Heather lives right next door! Congrats again to Erin and Ben on becoming our Brookhaven neighbors (literally!).

First Time Home Buyer :: Congrats to Brandon!

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014


Congrats, Brandon on buying your first home! Brandon – with the patience of a saint – snagged a great short sale (one of the few!) in Village Walk of East Atlanta. Brandon, a self-proclaimed perfectionist, knew that he wanted to find a great investment and home for himself. Brandon is not an Atlanta native, but he had the help of many friends who made the home search not only fun, but also entertaining! We appreciate past client, Jason for referring Brandon to our team AND for housing Brandon as he waited for his short sale approval! Congrats again, Brandon!
