Top Selling Counties In Metro Atlanta

You might think that Forsyth is the reigning champion when it comes to sales but you’d be wrong.  Here’s the top sellers in the metro Atlanta according to the MLS. 

  1. Fulton County – of course Atlanta’s county would have the most homes at 1,440 homes sold,  that’s a 10.26% increase with a median price of $245,000.  That’s 5.15% appreciation over last year, ya’ll. 
  2. Gwinnett County – No “top” list would be complete without Gwinnett.   With 1,233 homes sold which represents a 15.45% JUMP!  The median price just crested over $200K at  $205,000 which represents an appreciation of 8.75%!!
  3. Part of the big 3 – Cobb County!  With 1,001 homes sold, Cobb is steady as she goes with a very small increase over last years sales (0.20%).  The median price of homes in Cobb is $236,000 which is a whopping 9.77% increase (not the top though!)
  4. Dekalb County comes in fourth with 897 home sales which is 11.57% increase over last year.   A surprising $192K median price makes Dekalb county the most affordable in the top counties.  That’s a 5.38% increase.
  5. Finally, Cherokee County, representing the 2nd biggest jump in sales, at 11.58% but at $240,500 median price you’re look at a huge 17.75% appreciation.  Something’s going on over there! 
Oh and usually Forsyth is on this list and it would have been 6th.  With only 402 homes sold that gave it a small 4.69% increase and with a median price just under $300K ($297,520) brings the appreciation year over year to not even 1% (.57%).
