Top Atlanta Condo Sales for Third Quarter 2013

Buckhead Atlanta Skyline September 2013

The third quarter luxury sales are going strong with the Ritz-Carlton Residences in Buckhead closing huge numbers, followed by Sovereign (which has already sold their high-priced inventory).

The condo market has picked up significantly and the remaining “newer” inventory is quickly drying up – as evident by the huge reduction in inventory in all price ranges. When I talk about the “newer” properties, I am referring to any of the new construction condos that were built after 2008. It’s getting a little stressful out there with buyers competing for properties bidding against each other. I have been in a number of multiple offer situations and the outcome isn’t always successful at first – especially in the lower price ranges. Sometimes it takes a buyer a few times to realize the market has really turned and they are no longer in control.

I have targeted the highest sales above $700,000 and ended up with 24 transactions between July 1 and September 30. I did not include any town home units except the Habersham on Ivy.
