This exciting month, Daylight Saving Time begins, St Patrick's Day festivities abound, and First Day of Spring is on the 20th. As we Atlantans know, we can expect lots of pollen and showers, and beautiful blooming flowers and trees.
Spring time is also when many homeowners begin to list their homes on the market in preparation for the hot Summer selling season. Prices continue to rise in the Atlanta metro, while interest rates remain relatively stable, but they are rising as well.

Sincerely, Kemi Salako
