Beacham & Company, REALTORS® Announces Atlanta Housing Inventory on the Rise for First Time in 7 Years
Posted by Dac Carver — November 22, 2013
Atlanta's single family detached housing inventory rose slightly in September from the same month the year before - the first time the city's housing inventory has increased year-over-year in more than seven years.
The event culminates a trend of rising inventory that began in the summer. Inventory typically starts dropping in July or August every year and does not begin rising again until February. Even with the recent increase, housing inventory in Atlanta remains at its lowest level in 13 years, dating back to December 2000.
The historically low housing inventory situation has led to huge price increases this year but also a drop in sales from 2012 according to Dac Carver, Vice President of Beacham & Company, Realtors.
Atlanta’s single family detached housing inventory rose year-over-year in September for the first time in seven years.
"We anticipate inventory continuing its upward trend next year, which should moderate home price increases," Carver said. "The increase in inventory could also mean more home sales next year. The number of home sales in 2013 is down from 2012, which we attribute to a lack of adequate housing inventory more than any other factor."
