Zana Dillard of Dillard and Company Realty Group said “As we typically see a slow down in the market during Winter months and inventory to increase through February it should create for a good market heading into Spring come March! As prices rise sellers should continue into the market and with Georgia expecting economic growth in 2015, this should be a driving force for a better real estate market in 2015 building on the momentum of last year!”
As with last month, average and median sales prices continue to outpace 2013’s figures, with positive gains. The median sales price in November was $207,000, an increase of 15.6% from last November. The average sales price was $267,000, up 12.2% from the previous year.
