Michael FischerA Word from 2023 Atlanta REALTORS® President Michael Fischer:

“January sales were once again challenged by low inventory levels and the changes in mortgage interest rates,” reports Atlanta REALTORS® Association President Michael Fischer. “The positive news for sellers is that median sales prices have remained steady throughout most Atlanta submarkets with appreciation hovering around 1%.”

“Atlanta has been consistently ranked as one of the top cities in the US for job and population growth so looking ahead to the spring, we expect the demand for housing in Atlanta to remain strong.” says Fischer.
