County Units Sold Avg Sales Price Inventory (Months Supply)
Fulton 894 $634,418 less than 60 days
Gwinnett 900 $459,708 less than 60 days
Cobb 736 $506,419 less than 60 days
DeKalb 651 $484,240 less than 60 days
Henry 415 $364,280 less than 60 days
Cherokee 306 $574,361 less than 60 days
Forsyth 288 $668,121 less than 60 days
Paulding 310 $366,152 less than 60 days
Coweta 244 $453,576 less than 60 days
Fayette 152 $569,506 less than 60 days

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, being ready will help you compete with other active buyers that have their proof of funds in hand to submit a written offer on a property.
