In the first six months of this year, the Buckhead real estate market showed significant strength. Average sale prices on homes in Buckhead were up 8.9% over 2010 to $853,000.
Inventory has been lower this year than in recent years and 381 homes sold in Buckhead during the first half, half a dozen fewer homes during the same period in 2010.

We are now past the mid-point for 2011 and the most expensive property Atlanta has seen in recent years just sold. And while most of the sales numbers are down from last year, single family home sales have actually increased substantially in Vinings. Amid talks of a debt crisis in Washington, interest rates have remained low for now. It’s still a buyer’s market.
Atlanta’s Most Expensive Home – SOLD (Actually 30 min North of Atlanta)

It is rare to find such a beautiful custom home and this much land for sale in the 300's. But these sellers are motivated and that means a great deal for buyers.
Built in 2003, this Cape Cod style home at 3045 Ebenezer Road in Conyers is the sellers' pride and joy. With nearly 6 acres of wooded privacy, 2 beach volleyball courts, a wrap-around rocking chair front porch, bonus room above the garage and huge unfinished basement, this home has it all.
Buyers can search for years to find a property like this and so it's no wonder this is the first time this home has ever been on the market.
The sellers are relocating out of state and motivated to sell, so this is your opportunity to get a great deal on your dream home in the country.
