  • The Case-Shiller Index reports that Metro Atlanta home values have increased 40% from the bottom of March 2012.  But values remain down 15% from the peak of July 2007.   Click here for the latest report.
  • As the chart shows, our home values are back on a more normal trend line after over-inflating and then over-correcting.  These are common market cycles that work themselves back to a normal trend over time.
  • The long-term trend for mortgage rates is higher.  The Mortgage Bankers Association and Freddie Mac predict 30-year mortgage rates to be over 5% in late 2014 and 2015.  We still have exceptional mortgage rates.  The average mortgage rates in the last 50 years was 8%.  Act now before rates move higher!
