A Word from 2023 Atlanta REALTORS® President Michael Fischer:
"The Atlanta real estate market has been rebalancing over the last several months, with the number of listings increasing and the total number of sales cooling from the records set last Spring," reports Atlanta REALTORS® Association President Michael Fischer. "Historically, housing is in short-supply, but more balanced conditions will present Buyers with opportunities they haven't seen in several months."
"With interest rates continuing to pull back from recent peaks, we are expecting a busy spring market on the horizon as Atlanta continues to be a great place to live and work," says Fischer.
