Every month, the First Multiple Listing Service publishes numbers compiled by Smart Numbers with extensive research and statistics on the Atlanta market. The 130+ page document can be a bit overwhelming, so we break it down to the basics here to share with our sellers and fellow agents. The summary compares August 2008 numbers with August 2007 numbers. Enjoy and please feel free to give us a call if you have any questions! Our office # 404.564.7200.
