Slowly but surely!

Many economists are already referencing some early indications of price stabilization. (Even though we're off 8.5% over last year's median price.) Sales of existing homes reported up 9.2% for September! This means that at some price, EVERYTHING WILL SELL! We would rather see this continued absorption of home supply than to worry about short-term losses in home values. It's what I've been saying all along -- even if you are "losing" money by selling right now, chances are you are "making" money on whatever you are buying! We do need a steady supply of qualified buyers to continue to bring these neighborhood inventories down and return us to a period of normal, steady price growth. This will serve to further calm all those unbridled consumer fears -- and that will revive the broader economy! See how it all works together?!?! Hang in there, Atlanta. Slowly but surely, we will recover.
