Smyrna Vinings condo and townhome buyers continue to take advantage of the market. In August, the Smyrna Vinings townhome and condo market sales slowed ever so slightly. Much like the Smyrna Vinings single family home market, Smyrna Vinings condo and townhome sales continue to be spurred by low interest rates. Sales are even higher than last year, which was more than double the sales from just a couple years ago.As you can see, we’ve been tracking the market for quite some time. We sell a lot of Smyrna Vinings homes, condos and townhomes and one of the major reasons is that we specialize in the area, we know the inventory of homes for sale and understand the trends, statistics and all the local pertinent information necessary for you to make an informed decision.The green bar is 2007 an...
