2017 ends strong for many metro-area neighborhoods

Over half of the neighborhoods covered in The Hatch Neighborhood Report close the year out with an increase in average sales price and sales over 2016.

Congrats to neighborhoods in the Morris Brandon elementary school district, the Bolton elementary school district Morningside and the Norton Park elementary school district in Smyrna. You all ended 2017 with double-digit growth in ASP.

The markets showing negative growth are mostly priced above $750,000. That market has been steadily softening throughout 2017.

At the end of 2017, inventory provided just a two month’s supply.*
