Jim Chapman Communities is excited to see an increase in home sales in the Atlanta area!
Last week an article was released on HousingZone.com, “5 major cities where home sales are soaring”. The article shows Atlanta as the second leading major city in the country with home sales more than 25 percent ahead of last year.
This is great news for the Atlanta housing market, but also for the rest of the country as “existing home sales took a surprising jump in October, rising 13.5 percent from 2010,” according to the article. Atlanta’s home sales are up 33.4 percent from 2010.
“All but two of the largest metro areas (New York and Washington D.C.) were up from a year ago,” including Miami/Fort Lauderdale, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Cincinnati and New Orleans. Several other cities saw sales growth of at least 10 percent including Phoenix, Philadelphia, Dallas/Fort Worth, Kansas City, Portland, Indianapolis and Boston.
According to the Atlanta Real Estate Forum, “This is great news not only for existing home sales, but for new home sales, the real estate industry and the economy as a whole. Experts agree that an improvement in existing home sales will indicate an improvement in new home sales (as existing homeowners find buyers for their current homes, enabling them to purchase a newly constructed home), which will also positively impact the economy all together.”

During the month of October, Jim Chapman Communities (JCC) has received its fair share of press and for good reason. From the Atlanta Journal Constitution and Marietta Daily Journal to the Atlanta Business Chronicle and Johns Creek Herald, JCC has been front and center.
Offering incomparable active adult Atlanta real estate for those 55 and older, JCC has established itself as one of the premier active adult builders in the metro-Atlanta market. So, when the Atlanta Business Chronicle needed a quote about the status of the active adult real estate landscape in Atlanta, it turned to Kelly Dempsey, vice-president of sales and marketing director for JCC.
“The marketplace definitely ran away from new homes when foreclosed homes became sort of the trend where people could get a great value in a good location,” said Dempsey said in the article. “Those are beginning to diminish. The good locations and quality homes of today are beginning to diminish and people are coming back to builders to look for an opportunity to get that new home.”
So why has JCC become such a popular choice for active adults?
“In some cases, we have bought communities that have partially built homes; bank-owned properties,” Dempsey said. “We’re able to complete those homes and offer them for a value in an existing community between $70,000 and $120,000 below the existing pre-sale prices in those communities.”
JCC’s communities typically feature the builder’s signature two-and-three bedroom quad ranch condos as well as two- to four-bedroom single-family home floorplans. Bonus rooms with full baths, great rooms with fireplaces and kitchen upgrades are also available. Homes are mostly all-brick and stone construction with inviting front porches, vaulted ceilings and oversized master suites.
