Our October Intown Atlanta Market Survey measures market activity and changes over the last three years. We will look back in 12 month increments from 2010 to 2007. This report looks at the numbers from the market as a whole from October 1, 2007 to September 30, 2010.

Average Number of Days on the Market was 78 days over the last 12 months and 84 days for the period 2008-09. In 2007-08, the Average Number of Days on the Market was 76 days. Thus over one year change was down 7% and the two year change was a positive 3%.

The Intown Atlanta Market continues to have a bit of a split personality from month to month. Some months the numbers look good and other months, like this one, seem to be headed backward. Our own experience over the last several months is that more “everyday” buyers are entering the market and that business is generally on the upswing.
