As decadent 2018 draws to a close, it’s high time to take a look at the extravagant houses Atlanta homebuyers splurged on most this year.
To no one’s surprise, pretty much every property on this Top 10 list, ranging in price from almost $4 million to nearly $9 million—practically pocket change, compared to New York City’s big price tags—is located in, or around, north Atlanta’s tony Buckhead district.
Without further ado, take a peek at the 10 most expensive houses sold in Atlanta in 2018, according to various listing services.
