Homes in Atlanta are taking longer to sell and not receiving 20-25 offers in a single weekend like last summer. Does this mean you should wait to sell? Or is the current market still an opportunity for seller’s to cash in on all the equity gained over the last two years?

So there you have it! The housing market still remains largely a seller's market due to demand outpacing supply. The inventory of available houses continues to be a constraint on both buyers and sellers.
According to the National Association of Realtors®, homeowners tend to stay in a house about ten years before they sell. Think that sounds shockingly short? Or way too long? The fact is, people’s time frames will vary widely based on their reasons for selling.
If you are thinking of selling, the first step for a successful sale is to find a listing agent who knows the area and comes highly recommended. A good agent will work closely with you to price your home competitively while fielding questions and offers from prospective buyers.
Meanwhile, present your home in the best possible light. Not everyone has cash dedicated to renovations and repairs, but a little sweat equity can go a long way. The first step is to declutter, organize and clean.
Tuck away stacks of bills and receipts, store toys and make sure your kitchen is tidy. Bright lighting is also a great way to make your home feel spacious and light.
Even if your home is outdated, a clean space gives buyers a chance to envision the potential of the new home.
