Were the home sales in Byron GA in February 2017 strong or did this market slow down for winter? Does this market favor buyers? Maybe sellers have the upper hand? Stay tuned and find out all the facts about this real estate market!
With 64 houses to pick from (up 9 over the previous month), it has been good to see several new listings hit the market so far this year.
