Atlanta, GA – July 31, 2009 – (RealEstateRama) — The newest online video report, highlighting the latest news and statistics about the metro Atlanta summer real estate market, is now available for free viewing at www.AtlantaRealEstate2009.com. Other information available for download from this site includes information on a Job Loss Protection program offered exclusively by Prudential Georgia Realty, the federal government’s $8,000 First-Time Home Buyer’s Tax Credit and a video on Prudential’s award-winning Advanced Property Marketing System for sellers.
This latest Atlanta Real Estate video installment offers details on national market conditions, an update on the metro Atlanta real estate market, including how and why it’s faring better than national averages, a bold prediction for when this buyer’s market will become a seller’s market, information on SunTrust’s current down payment assistance program, and a message from Senator Johnny Isakson, who speaks with 50 years’ experience in the Atlanta real estate market.
The video is narrated by Prudential Georgia Realty President and CEO Dan Forsman, a recognized expert and frequent speaker about the Atlanta real estate market. He has been featured on 11 Alive News, Fox 5 Atlanta News, CNBC and locally on 920 WGKA AM radio, where Forsman was a guest on the John Adams Radio Show, a weekly program about real estate, on July 18, 2009. For his vision and commitment to the real estate industry, Forsman was awarded Broker of the Year for all of North America by Prudential Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. and Realtor of the Year by the Atlanta Board of Realtors.
In the state of the market message, Forsman candidly discusses Atlanta foreclosure trends, local home values as well as the positive long-term trends that will impact future home values for Atlanta. Market research shows that 10 percent of Atlanta area listings are selling each month. Forsman sums it up with a bold prediction of a seller’s market returning to metro Atlanta in just over two years. He also includes positive future trend predictions including one by the Census Bureau which projects Atlanta will lead the nation by producing 1.7 million new jobs by 2025.
“All markets go through cycles—real estate is no different. The trick is knowing when the best time to jump into a down market for maximum gains in the future. Right now is that time for metro Atlanta real estate,” says Dan Forsman. “These opportunities for investing are easy to see historically, but are often missed as they occur. From 2000 to 2008, real estate produced an average return of 72 percent while NASDAQ lost 45 percent over that same time period.”
Prudential Georgia Realty recognized, in 2007, that consumers20were confused by the conflicting stories and sensationalist headlines about the state of the local real estate market. To inform the home-buying and selling public, Prudential Georgia Realty launched the Atlanta Real Estate video series in the Fall 2007, to provide consumers the real market facts and valuable insight for buyers and sellers. The Atlanta Real Estate video series continues to grow in popularity and has elevated Prudential Georgia Realty as the thought leader in the local real estate community.
