Housing 

According to the 2010 U.S. Census Bureau Data, Rockdale County has a population of 85,215 which is a 21.5% increase since 2000.  There were 31,767 housing units as of 2009 with a homeownership rate of 71%.  Rockdale County is part of the Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Marietta, GA Metro Area metropolitan statistical area.

Home sales in Rockdale have been declining as with most other Metro Atlanta markets since the 2005-2006 peak.  According to Georgia Multiple Listing Service Data, there were 838 homes sold in 2010.  At the peak there were 1558 sold [2006].  The average sale price for 2010 was $124k with almost half of the 800+ homes selling at prices under $100k.

For first time buyers, people who want to downsize, folks interesting in buying larger homes, investors and any other person interested in buying…you simply couldn’t ask for a better time.  As reported almost everywhere you can find a real estate statistic, rates are low, inventory is high, distressed sales are offered at reduced prices and opportunity is everywhere. 

You may be thinking…”I have a home to sell and there’s no way we can profit in this market”.  THINK AGAIN!  Perhaps you won’t be able to get the sale price you thought you’d get for your current home, but you may be able to  purchase a new home at a lower price with a lower interest rate and still come out on top of the investment.  It’s definately worth looking into – consult a REALTOR® for a comparative market anaylsis of your property.  Get an idea of what sale price is typical in your market and take a look at the opportunity that you’d have to purchase your dream property.
