Metro Atlanta Home Prices Continue to Rise

Woodstock and Alpharetta home prices on the rise in 2013Good news for the metro Atlanta real estate market: According to S&P/Case-Shiller’s Home Price Indices, Atlanta’s home-price gains reached their highest levels ever as of April’s report. Year-over-year home prices increased 20.8 percent, beating the national growth increase of 12.1 percent. This will no doubt come as a relief to homeowners who have been hesitant to list their homes for sale since the housing crisis due to owing more than the home could fetch on the market. Finally the Alpharetta and Woodstock real estate market is getting back into full swing again and prime for sellers to take advantage.

Despite rising mortgage rates, buyers are keen to grab up in-demand Woodstock and Alpharetta homes. Home buyers have worked around mortgage increases in the past by turning from fixed rate to adjustable rate loans, and some banks seem to be relaxing their credit restrictions for new homeowners. Thanks to this confluence of factors, the residential real estate recovery is predicted to continue.
