According to a recent study by Stacker, Atlanta is becoming an increasingly popular destination for homebuyers from other metropolitan areas.

The study found that people from several metros are looking to buy homes in Atlanta, including those from:

  • Dallas, Texas
  • New York, New York
  • Los Angeles, California
  • Charlotte, North Carolina
  • Orlando, Florida

The study analyzed data from the online real estate platform, which showed that Atlanta’s housing market is experiencing a surge in demand from out-of-state buyers. The study also revealed that the median home price in Atlanta is more affordable than in many other major cities, making it an attractive option for those looking to purchase a home.

Atlanta has a lot to offer homebuyers. With a strong job market, a vibrant cultural scene, and a mix of urban amenities and suburban charm, it is no surprise that people from other major metros are taking notice and considering making a move to the city. As a result, the study highlighted the top neighborhoods in Atlanta that are drawing interest from out-of-state buyers, including:

  • Midtown ATL
  • Buckhead

Three of these neighborhoods are Midtown ATL, Virginia Highlands, and Buckhead.
