Low Real Estate Inventory Extends to Foreclosures

Alpharetta and Woodstock real estate newsForeclosure real estate transactions fell to their lowest levels in over 6 years as of April, showing that the low inventory of homes for sale extends even to distressed properties. Foreclosures are down 23% from a year ago, and the low inventory is helping drive prices up. In fact, home prices were up 10.5% in March over the previous year. Low-priced foreclosed homes are no longer a threat in the market, and real estate agents are actively looking for homes to list, as both foreclosures and regular home inventory remain low, driving high demand.

While the housing inventory shortage certainly makes it a good time to sell Alpharetta real estate, the current market conditions are good for buyers as well. The current mortgage interest rates are well below what they were this same time last year, a 40-year low that makes locking in to a fixed-rate mortgage a wise choice in this housing market.
