Press Release by GNAR | August 7, 2014
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Aug. 7, 2014) – There were 3,258 home closings reported for the month of July, according to figures provided by the Greater Nashville Association of REALTORS®. This represents a 3.4 percent increase from the 3,151 closings reported for the same period last year.
Year-to-date closings for the Greater Nashville area are 18,594. That is an increase of 3.2 percent from the 18,010 closings reported through July 2013.
“The Greater Nashville area continues to see signs of a healthy market. July and year-to-date figures are all up more than three percent compared to the same periods last year and pending sales remain strong. This is welcome news,” said GNAR President Hagan Stone. “The continuation of excellent visibility and positive economic news for Greater Nashville is attracting more people to the area, and seems to be building confidence in those already living here.”
The small increments of growth we have experienced over the last few months are maintainable and promote a stable market. With several months of positive trends behind us, we hope solid sales continue into the fall.”
There were 3,201 sales pending at the end of July, compared with 3,083 pending sales at this time last year. The average number of days on the market for a single-family home was 64 days.
The median residential price for a single-family home during July was $221,000 and for a condominium it was $170,000. This compares with last year’s median residential and condominium prices of $204,000 and $154,500, respectively.
Inventory at the end of July was 15,919, down from 16,651 in July 2013.
“Our market continues to see positive signs, but like the rest of the country we continue to struggle with inventory,” added Stone. “If you are considering making a new home purchase and your current home is well-maintained, this is an excellent time to be a seller. There are many equipped and knowledgeable Realtors in the area ready to work with you.”
