The most recent real estate report from details the current activity and trends in the Atlanta real estate market during April 2012. The last few months Atlanta home prices have finally started picking up after lagging behind the rest of the country. High unemployment rate of 11%, foreclosures and large inventory levels have all held back the city’s real estate recovery.

According to data supplied by the Atlanta Board of Realtors (ABR), the April numbers were mixed. Below are some key findings for the Atlanta area:

  •     Total Sales in April 2012 were 3,698 are 5% lower than March of this year and 5% higher than April 2011
  •     Median Sales Price is $135,000 up 3.9% compared to April 2011
  •     Average Sales Price was $190,677.26 in 2012, up from $179,003.81
  •     April 2012 bank sales were down to 44% from April 2011

Atlanta home prices were up from a year ago but April wasn’t quite as strong as March in overall sales. The price increase corresponds with a drop in bank owned sales. REO sales have decreased both month over month and year over year, however, foreclosure sales are still higher than they were in 2010.

Mitch Kaminer, president of the Atlanta Board of Realtors, remains positive. “It's been the best spring season in five years." Atlanta real estate agents across the city are hoping that the April numbers signal a strong summer season.
