YOY Increase: 16.5%
The second cheapest city on the list is enjoying eye-popping price gains. Atlanta’s home price levels were just under $100,000 in February — a solid 16.5% improvement from the same time a year ago, though exactly the same as the month prior.
At this point in the game, it’s a seller’s market down South, with more buyers than houses available. Many also expect that “rebounding prices for housing in metro Atlanta (should) help revive the housing and construction industry.”
The cherry on top: Atlanta remains one of the least bubbly regions in the country.
