College Park was the winner and Hapeville narrowly beat out East Point for second place for the dubious honor of the market that lost the highest percentage of Average Sales Price over the last 12 months. All of the markets experienced a decline in the Number of Units Sold. The decline in Sales Volume was nearing 50% in both College Park and Hapeville. The only bright spot for the Tri-Cities markets was that all of the markets had a drop in the Average Number of Days on the Market.
