Home Prices Rise For the 5th Straight Month!

That's right; despite the "down" economy, home prices have been on the rise for the 5th straight month according to a recent article posted on MSNBC. The article also says that this study was higher than what economists had predicted leading many to think that this is the first sign of a positive turnaround for the American economy. While this news is wonderful for sellers who are trying to get the most for their homes on the market, buyers might be a little discouraged when trying to find a great deal. Fortunately for buyers, short sales and foreclosures are still on the rise in the Atlanta and metro area. Atlanta short sales and Atlanta foreclosures have been in high demand due to the low prices and high quality. These statistics show that there is becoming a stable balance for sellers and buyers in this market.

Athletes Choose Atlanta to Call Home!

More and more athletes are buying houses in Atlanta and surrounding areas. On Monday, the Atlanta Journal Constitution published an article about how Atlanta is a favored spot for Athletes. Many NBA, NFL, NHL, and MLB players are living in Atlanta for at least a majority of the year. Most of the athletes quoted in the article express their liking of the variety that Atlanta has to offer. For example, Dorsey Levens is quoted saying that Atlanta "is the best of both worlds." He is not the only one who feels this way... Atlanta has not only been called home for many athletes but also an off season hot spot. The night life, award winning schools, and the perfect size of the city all contribute to this. Cobb County, Alpharetta, and Jonesboro are a few of the main places that athletes are living. Compared to California, New Jersey, New York, and even Miami, Atlanta real estate offers buyers more for their money.

This is just one more example of why Atlanta is such a wonderful and unique place to live. Buyers relocating to Atlanta are catching onto the charm and wanting to call Atlanta home too!
