A Word from 2019 Atlanta REALTORS President DeAnn Golden: “The Atlanta market continues to be very active, with the availability of homes hovering around levels that are the highest for the past two years. Although the levels of recent monthly home sales roughly match last year’s levels, the steady rise in prices is an indication of strong continued demand, and it is great news for Atlanta's current homeowners' equity values.”
