In June, home prices rose in metro Atlanta. In the metro area, the median sale price is now at $273,000, which is up 4% from the previous year.

“We are seeing low inventory, multiple offers, historically low interest rates, and a lot of demand,” Kristen Jones, broker and owner of Re/Max Around Atlanta told the AJC. “We currently have twice as many pending contracts as we did this same time last year.”

However, even as median home prices climb upward, there are still some homes in the metro area below the median. Here are seven homes for sale right now in the city for less than $250,000.
