    You are reporting that Atlanta’s housing market has essentially fallen off a cliff. Any suggestions as to why?

    • Dave Guarino says:

      Thank you for the question and for following our Indices.

      The question of “What’s Going on in Atlanta” has recently been addressed by HousingViews Author, David Stiff — Chief Economist at Fiserv Case-Shiller. In his post, David suggests that the significant increase in the sales volume of bank-owned properties in the Atlanta area is the primary reason for the fall in average home values in the Atlanta MSA. Changes in the volume of bank-owned sales can cause changes in average prices that will be reflected in the S&P/Case-Shiller Indices.

      Here is a direct link to David’s post which provides a bit more color on Atlanta home prices.
