With this year’s home buying season in full swing — at least according to the calendar — are you preparing to reverse recent history?
In a new report, AJC staffer Michelle Shaw writes that every metro region across 20 counties saw prices decline last year. And all but two counties saw sales drop, too.
In the core counties of Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Fulton and Gwinnett, the median price of single-family homes tumbled 21 percent, Shaw reports. And the number of homes sold fell 6 percent.
But that was then. This is now. The economy is starting to improve, and many consumers have been cutting spending and trying to reduce debt.
So, will you be taking the plunge over the next few months — either on the buy or sell side? What’s pushing you in or holding you back?
