At the end of 2018 I predicted that 2019 would be a strong year for the high-end Buckhead market, and now looking back a year later it exceeded even my expectations. Ten homes sold for more than $4.5 million in 2019 and two of the top sales far surpassing 2018’s most expensive $8.9 million home. The market for these ultra high-end properties has remained strong through the end of the year and into 2020.
Two of the top sales from last year, including the #1 sale, were condos located in the Residences of the St. Regis in Buckhead Village. As the core of Buckhead booms with new developments, there seems to be a growing desire to live in the middle of the action. Also of note, three of these home sales were off-market sales, meaning they were not publicly marketed. Off-market sales have continued to be a growing part of the luxury real estate market in Buckhead.
