A Word from 2017 Atlanta REALTORS® President Bill Rawlings: “Home values are rising at reasonable levels, and the Atlanta market has stayed accessible to both buyers and sellers. The local market has consistently had around a three-months’ supply for the past year, with sale prices improving reliably yet without the rapid acceleration of some other major cities.”
