ARE SELLERS PAYING BUYER CLOSING COSTS? 

Buyer closing costs are typically about 2.5% to 4% of the purchase price (in addition to their downpayment) and many buyers need a bit of help from the home seller.  In 2019, the average seller paid $4,400 towards buyer closing costs, which is up significantly from 2018 when the average was $3,100.

HOW FAST ARE EAST ATLANTA HOMES SELLING?

Single-family homes took 48 days to sell on average — BUT 25% of the  East Atlanta homes sold in less than ONE week.

The median number of days on market was only 27 (vs 16 days last year) and we would consider that a more accurate reflection of what is happening in today’s real estate market, as were a few factors at play.  First, several new construction and/or home renovations were listed in the MLS before the homes were finished. Also, several homes priced a little too high when they were first listed and they sat on the market – some for more than 6 months!

If you are thinking of selling your home this Spring, please know that homes are taking about 40% longer to sell in East Atlanta.  If your home is priced well, shows well and is under $500K, there is a very good chance that it will sell in the first 2 weeks.

ARE HOME BUYERS STILL PAYING TOP DOLLAR?

The best answer is…. usually!  In 2019, East Atlanta area homes sold at 97% of the asking price, on average.  That means that buyers were able to negotiate an average of 3% off the asking price – that’s about 3.1% more than in 2018.  To put this in perspective…

* On a $600,000 home, buyers are negotiating about $18,000 off the listing price

* On a $300,000 home, buyers are negotiating about $9,000 off the listing price

If you are looking for a home in this popular Intown Atlanta neighborhood, make sure you consult with your buyer’s agent who is very familiar with the East Atlanta real estate market.  With 33% of the homes selling at or over the asking price, you may have to go in with a very strong offer, especially on newly listed homes for sale.
