Buckhead’s Top Home Sales for 2021

2021 was another fantastic year for Buckhead real estate! Not only was a new record set for the highest-priced home sale ever (more on that below), but the overall demand has remained strong and steady. The overall inflation story in the economy and demand driven by the Covid-induced “Great Relocation” are the top two driving forces.

Here is a look at average sale prices and total number of sales over the last 4 years:
