Atlanta Median Home Price

According to the census bureau the median home price in metro Atlanta is $171,346. The vast majority of homes in Atlanta are in the $100,000 to $199,000 range. (See page 25 of the report.) This 356 report contains a great amount of information about Atlanta housing. If you are interested, you can find how many three story houses there are in Atlanta, or how many houses have 5 bathrooms, or much more useful (or not) information.

Exterior Paint Color

Surveys show that Americans are conservative in their preference of exterior house colors. Thirty-four percent prefer white and another twenty-eight percent prefer a shade of beige. (I have read similar results from a Sears national survey, but I have only found second-hand references to it.)

If you think you might sell your house before painting again, it would be best to select a color that appeals to the broadest group of potential buyers. Choosing a color that has limited appeal may reduce the number of people that will even consider your house.
