Atlanta’s Top Selling Counties


According to research from GAMLS,

Fulton County is the Top selling county in Metro Atlanta.

Homes are on the market for sale less than 30 days.

Homes are SOLD faster than buyers can submit offers.




County Units Sold Avg Sales Price Median Sales Price Inventory (Months Supply) Median Days on Market
Fulton 1,219 $331,305 $237,859 3.06 28
Gwinnett 1,009 $224,270 $195,000 2.49 30
Cobb 824 $267,259 $230,000 2.11 23
DeKalb 773 $302,560 $185,000 2.69 28
Henry 355 $179,040 $162,000 4.21 43
Cherokee 349 $251,798 $228,500 2.55 27
Forsyth 347 $325,415 $295,000 3.2 32
Paulding 233 $177,829 $158,100 3.03 36
Coweta 221 $207,939 $182,000 2.78 24
Fayette 162 $293,699 $252,314 2.8 23


In short, there is barely a 3 month supply of inventory that averages only 28 days on the market (ex, Fulton County) before it’s reported under contract in the mls, so the actual average days on market are much less than that. If the property is priced to sell, property owners are receiving multiple offers the day the property is listed for sale. Also if your an Atlanta buyer purchasing property much less than the average sales price, now you can see why every property you’ve called about is already under contract, pending or sold.

As a buyer in the Atlanta market or any market that has low inventory, you have to be ready because your competing with other active buyers that are already pre approved & have their proof of funds in hand ready, willing & able to submit a written offer on a property.

This is why getting Pre Approved for a home loan is the first step you should make before attempting to make an appointment to see property. The early bird gets the worm is not a sales pitch. It’s just the facts & the above chart, along with the MLS data & statistics supports the truth about home buying in Atlanta.
