A Word from 2019 Atlanta REALTORS President DeAnn Golden: “Atlanta housing inventory ticked up in April, with the local market having 12% more listings for buyers than this time last year. The healthy economy is creating considerable demand for purchasing a home, and this increase in inventory in the early part of the buying season is a good sign for the months ahead.”
