Home inspection checklist: 6 things homebuyers need to know, according to Forbes

How do the median prices for homes in Jackson County vary by ZIP code?

Home prices in Jackson County are up 7.8 percent from a year ago as the number of sales rose according to the AJC 2020 Metro Atlanta Home Sales Report. But the results varied in different parts of the county.

Over the year from May 1, 2019 to April 30, 2020, the median price of a Jackson County home sold was $249,563, an increase of 7.8 percent from the previous 12-month period, according to home sales data collected by Smart Real Estate Data.

The median price is considered the best reflection of what consumers will find in the marketplace. Median price indicates that half the homes were priced above and half below the midpoint. An average number can be distorted by a few wildly expensive or very inexpensive home sales.

Steep changes in home prices may reflect the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the housing market beginning in March 2020. Median home prices recorded from March 1, 2019 to February 29, 2020 rose by 9.4 percent in Jackson County compared with the previous 12 months.
