A Word from 2023 Atlanta REALTORS® President, Michael Fischer:

“We have experienced a slight decline in interest rates over the last few weeks and this has sparked some renewed interest among buyers,” reports Atlanta REALTORS® Association President Michael Fischer. “We continue to see extremely low inventory and, as a result, we are now experiencing a return of multiple offers on properties in certain areas.”

“While we're still seeing the total number of transactions lower than last year’s strong pace, the greater competition around new listings has resulted in a slight price appreciation and shorter days on market,” says Fischer.
