A Word from 2020 Atlanta REALTORS® President Jennifer Pino:

Jennifer Pino, President of Atlanta REALTORS® Association said, "National economists have projected sales should increase modestly over 2020, but Metro Atlanta experienced a great start to 2020 with January sales reflecting a strong 7.8% increase. With demand remaining high and inventory levels continuing at historic lows, the median price has increased again by 7%. Interest rates are expected to remain low throughout 2020, which will help keep the monthly mortgage at an affordable level."
