Metro Atlanta housing got a healthy dose of same-old, same-old last month, according to two reports.
Same: Rising prices. Same: Fewer homes for sale.
Old: Not the lists of homes for sale – they get snapped up awfully fast, according to a report released by Re/Max Georgia. The average listing in May was on the market 43 days, down from 48 days in the same month a year earlier. A separate report, released at the end of last week by the Atlanta Realtors Association, showed the median price of a metro Atlanta home up slightly less, but with a higher closing price. Prices rose 4.9 percent in May from the same month a year ago, said the Realtors.
