A Word from 2019 Atlanta REALTORS® President DeAnn Golden: “The inventory for available homes has been improving for several months, which was helped by the addition of over six thousand new listings in May, the largest one-month increase in years. The number of new listings has stayed modestly ahead of the monthly sales for several months, which has improved the availability of home options for buyers.”
