Current Challenges

Though mortgage rates are currently steady, the Atlanta housing market faces its own issues. The demand for housing is high, but inventory is low. All around us, trees are being cut down, builders are pulling permits and new construction homes are on the rise. Since land values are currently high, new construction homes and townhomes range greatly in price.

A booming local economy with technology companies relocating to the Metro Atlanta, have much to contribute to these challenges. Further, the demand is higher than the supply and rent is climbing. Cash sales are closing quickly and sellers often receive multiple offers from which to choose.

Therefore, it is ever more imperative to have the right real estate team representing the needs of buyers and sellers to ensure a smooth transaction. Contract negotiations and new laws make it necessary to have knowledge and experience on your side. This is exactly what makes the McAlister Home Group the right team to represent your needs!
