Atlanta’s Top Selling Counties in 2020

Atlanta’s Top Selling Counties in 2020

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 with multiple offers.

The average sales price in Fulton county through the end of 2019 was $433,492.

That’s an $102,187 increase from just 4 years ago in 2016 when the average sales price was $331,305.  

County Units Sold Avg Sales Price Inventory (Months Supply) Median Days on Market
Fulton 867 $433,492 2.69 28
Gwinnett 949 $293,010 2.49 30
Cobb 675 $346,339 2.11 23
DeKalb 601 $334,233 2.69 28
Henry 355 $237,529 4.21 43
Cherokee 370 $335,480 2.55 27
Forsyth 289 $402,851 3.2 32
Paulding 258 $243,016 3.03 36
Coweta 247 $296,282 2.78 24
Fayette 170 $400,665 2.8 23

 

In short, there is barely a 2 month supply of inventory that averages 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 you’re 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 in starting the home buying process. 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.

Client Appreciation

The Popeye’s Franchise praise is well deserved but even more deserving is my client, Mr. Mack. Mr. Wilbourn’s loyalty to black business owners around the country & dedication to the city of Atlanta is what many haven’t had the privilege to know. It’s been fun to see young Atlanta showing respect to what many of us have known for years. The continued intentional referrals from Mr. Mack are priceless.

Mack’s energy, optimism & wisdom has been very infectious to business owners around the world. Congratulations on your continued success! We honor & salute you!

What is your role at said organization/company? 

I’m Founder of Diamond Realty Brokers, a residential & commercial real estate agency based in Atlanta, Ga & licensed throughout the southeast.

In addition to residential sales, my Firm has consulted & managed over 4100 Real Property Assets totaling nearly $300 Million from Multi Family, Senior Housing, LIHTC Properties, Single Family Corporate Portfolios, REIT’s & Commercial Real Estate.

Educational BackgroundI studied at Tennessee State University & obtained a Bachelors of Arts degree in Sociology at Georgia State University.

I also hold multiple real estate brokerage licenses in Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina & South Carolina.

What qualifications prepared me for this job?

A combination of qualifications prepared me for this job in addition to obtaining multiple real estate licenses. Before I received my real estate license, I was a Large Enterprise Consultant with IBM Corporation in the late 90’s. The business development & technology skills I gained were very essential to my sustainability in the real estate industry. It prepared me for this digital age. Our team consulted Fortune 500 companies on technology solutions, which at the time was innovative e-commerce technology so I am able to understand the value technology brings to my real estate business. Instead of resisting technological changes, I welcome it. Being found online by millions of people doesn’t happen by chance. It happens by target marketing & not being afraid of technological advances. Those qualifications help my firm to be the #1 searched real estate firm in a number of markets. When real estate meets technology it creates a significant more affordable platform for scalability versus other marketing & advertising platforms.

What are your thoughts on being a powerful woman?

We have philosophical, human & intellectual stake in power. We give birth to power so we may as well own it. Harriet Tubman said she could have freed more slaves if they knew they were slaves. I believe successful women can empower other women if women truly know they are powerful.

What are the three most important factors of being a successful woman?

Having defined principles for your faith, family & finances.

What works for your family dynamics may not work for someone else. You have to find that rhythm that works for you. Move in that direction & stay the course. When the rhythm changes, find the notes that fit that workflow so that your family life will have harmonic balance.

I do believe we are spiritual beings having a human experience. Exercising your faith muscle is key for spiritual & financial growth. Which leads to my third principle. Having defined principles for your finances is an important factor for being a successful woman.

Only you know where you want to be financially. Create a 1,3 & 5 year blue print of what financial success looks like to you not someone else. Articulate that to a financial advisor or your banker & commit to the work that will allow your financial vision to manifest.

6. How can women increase their income?

Invest in yourself & your brand. Develop a blue print for where you want to be & set goals over a timeline so that you can hold yourself accountable. Do your own research & don’t be afraid to ask others that have been where you want to be. Discover how you can monetize what you love to do. Learn how to keep your overhead & risks low so that your return can be maximized. Consider hiring a business consultant that can help you learn how to be a sustainable successful business owner. Women can find out more about how to increase their income on my website at http://angelknightceo.com 

Who or what motivates you & why?

My faith motivates me to inspire aspiring female entrepreneurs. The 9 to 5 life does not always align with every family dynamic. Many women & mothers are settling for a life that is less than what they had hoped. Staring my own real estate agency over a decade ago was a result of not wanting to settle even as a single mom. Apart of my life’s mission is to leave a stable financial legacy for not just my son by for his children’s children, that motivates me. The real estate industry was the hardest hit industry during the economic recession & my real estate agency survived when less that 2% of Real Estate Agency’s are minority & women owned according to the National Association of Realtors. Victories don’t happen by accident. I believe victories happen so that you can help someone else become victorious. I basically grew up as a fatherless daughter, yet my childhood mentor was Vernon Winfrey, Oprah Winfrey’s father. I don’t believe that happened by chance but by faith.

What advice do you wish to offer women that are seeking a similar career path?

After obtaining a real estate license, create a business plan for business development, marketing & transaction management. Incorporate real estate technology into simplifying your day to tasks. Time is money so go paperless. You’ll make a return on your time by going paperless with e-signing documents & using secure cloud based systems for internal processes. Utilizing cloud based technology allows you to work from anywhere in the world so your not tied down to an office. This will allow you to build a business around the lifestyle you desire instead of building a life around your business. In other words, my family life is the central hub without that principle, your chakras won’t be balanced & you’ll be constantly trying to balance life, work & play.

Invest a portion of your time in various continuing education courses for real estate to become an expert in your market. Obtaining a real estate license only gives you the right to practice real estate it doesn’t teach you how to develop business, market or even sell real estate. There are enough people with a real estate license but not enough professionals that invest time in becoming an expert. Know that no one is going to build your business but you. Brokers may give you the tools & training resources that you need but you have to use the tools & be coachable to get trained. You have to be self motivated to be self employed no matter what industry. If you treat your profession like a business, you’ll be at the beginning of a sustainable real estate career.
