Nashville-Area Home Sales Up 6 Percent in November

Nashville-Area Home Sales Up 6 Percent in November
Article by Greater Nashville REALTORS®, Press Release 120717

House 1022NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Dec. 7, 2017) – There were 3,177 home closings reported for the month of November, according to figures provided by Greater Nashville REALTORS®. This figure is up 6.7 percent from the 2,978 closings reported for the same period last year.

Year-to-date closings for the Greater Nashville area were 37,236 at the end of November. That is an increase of 4.4 percent from the 35,674 closings, reported through November 2016.

“Sales are up 6.7 percent year-over-year. Typically, sales drop in the fall and days-on-market expand. October to November of 2017 saw that same pattern,” said Greater Nashville REALTORS® President Scott Troxel.

“Sellers are more hesitant in putting their homes on the market during the holidays and colder months, and conversely, traffic from buyers also slows during this time. However, those who are in the market during the next few months, whether buying or selling, are serious about making a move in the market.

“Fewer properties on the market means less competition for sellers. When potential buyers are gift shopping more than they are home shopping, that also means less competition for determined buyers. If buying or selling real estate is a priority for you, now is a good time to move forward,” said Troxel.

There were 2,906 properties under contract at the end of the month, compared to the 2,591 properties under contract at this time last year. The average number of days on the market for a single-family home was 29 days.

The median residential price for a single-family home during November was $285,000 and for a condominium, it was $216,751. This compares with last year’s median residential and condominium prices of $259,900 and $182,390, respectively.

Active inventory at the end of November was 9,454, down from 9,946 in 2016.

“Middle Tennessee is still on track to end 2017 with a record year for our housing market. The positive trends needed to sustain a healthy market – modest growth in sales and prices – continue to mark our region,” said Troxel.

Nashville Area Housing Market Holds Steady Entering the Fourth Quarter

Nashville Area Housing Market Holds Steady Entering the Fourth Quarter
Press Release by Greater Nashville REALTORS® | November 7, 2017

Nashville Zoo Image 1NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Nov. 7, 2017) – There were 3,267 home closings reported for the month of October, according to figures provided by Greater Nashville REALTORS®. This figure is down 1.7 percent from the 3,324 closings reported for the same period last year.

Year-to-date closings for the Greater Nashville area were 34,059 at the end of October. That is an increase of 4.2 percent from the 32,696 closings, reported through October 2016.

“Through all of 2017, the Middle Tennessee region witnessed significant increases in year-over-year sales,” said Greater Nashville REALTORS® President Scott Troxel. “October showed a modest decline in the number of properties sold. Residential properties saw just 15 fewer sales in October compared to 2016. A minor adjustment like this is not cause for alarm. Our market’s dynamics are very positive, both in the local economy and the housing market. We expect to see a typical lull in the fall and holidays, followed by renewed energy in January.”

There were 3,358 properties under contract at the end of the month, compared to the 3,083 properties under contract at this time last year. The average number of days on the market for a single-family home was 27 days.

The median residential price for a single-family home during October was $277,642 and for a condominium, it was $208,000. This compares with last year’s median residential and condominium prices of $261,000 and $186,000, respectively.

Active inventory at the end of October was 9,564, down from 10,177 in 2016.

“REALTORS® had hoped proposed tax reform would lead to needed changes; unfortunately, the current proposals are going to hurt current and potential homeowners,” said Troxel. “Measures like placing limits on the use of the Mortgage Interest Deduction and the elimination of deductions for state and local sales and income tax will reverse the incentives for homeownership. Considering that homeowners pay between 80 and 90 percent of all federal incomes taxes, they shouldn’t be penalized through tax reform. REALTORS® are working fervently to protect homeownership and homeowners.”

Greater Nashville: Housing Market Positive Trends Continue Into Second Half of the Year

leave a comment »

Housing Market Positive Trends Continue Into Second Half of the Year
Press Release by Greater Nashville REALTORS® | August 7, 2017

House 1013NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 7, 2017) – There were 3,872 closings reported for the month of July, according to figures provided by Greater Nashville REALTORS®. This represents an increase of 4.5 percent over the 3,705 closings reported for July 2016.

Year-to-date closings total 23,365. That is a 5.5 percent increase compared to the 22,157 closings reported through July 2016.

“Median home price is up again compared to the same month last year. As supply and demand continue to be at odds, prices can be expected to continue to rise,” said Greater Nashville REALTORS® President Scott Troxel. “However, median price is down from last month.

“It’s far too soon to tell if the drop in median price from June to July is evidence of a trend. It’s very likely there were proportionally more ‘starter’ homes sold in July than the number of starter homes sold in June. My experience is that different sectors of the market are more engaged and less-engaged at different times of the year.”

There were 3,887 properties under contract at the end of the month, compared to the 3,426 properties under contract at this time last year. The average number of days on the market for a single-family home was 25 days.

The median residential price for a single-family home during July was $288,243 and for a condominium it was $203,000. This compares with last year’s median residential and condominium prices of $267,000 and $189,986, respectively.

Active inventory at the end of July was 9,151, down from 10,133 in 2016.

“Affordability is a serious issue, but it’s not the sole issue affecting our housing market,” said Troxel. “It’s imperative we as residents, Realtors, businesses and a community work together to find solutions for matters like transit and continue to support our education systems.

“Greater Nashville REALTORS® is actively participating in all of these areas, advocating for both the business and the homeowner side of the housing industry. These items impact our housing market and we all want Middle Tennessee to continue to be a place individuals, families and businesses want to call home.”

Strongest Second Quarter on Record for Nashville Area Housing Market

Strongest Second Quarter on Record for Nashville Area Housing Market
Press Release by Greater Nashville REALTORS® | July 7, 2017

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 7, 2017) – There were 3,887 homes sold in the month of June, according to figures provided by Greater Nashville REALTORS®. That figure is up 0.4 percent compared to the 3,869 closings reported for June 2016.

Second-quarter closings are 11,155, a 2.8 percent increase from the 10,851 closings reported through the second quarter of 2016. Year-to-date closings for Greater Nashville are up 5.6 percent with 19,493 closings compared to the 18,452 closings reported through midyear 2016.

“The second quarter was our housing market’s strongest on record,” said Greater Nashville REALTORS® President Scott Troxel. “The last time our market performed this well in the second quarter was 2006, with 11,046 closings. We’re a few units short of being ahead of midyear 2006, but with half a year left for sales, I suspect we’ll come close to the 2006 record of more than 40,000 annual closings.

“Closings for the month of June were virtually flat. This is no surprise given the current disparity between supply and demand in the market.”

The median residential price for a single-family home during June was $293,753, and for a condominium it was $199,350. Last year’s median residential and condominium prices for June were $260,148 and $186,495, respectively.

There were 3,914 properties under contract at the end of June, compared with 3,863 at this time last year. The average number of days on the market for a single-family home was 25 days.

Inventory at the end of June was 8,842, down from 9,865 in June 2016.

“The data for June and second quarter home sales prove our market has the necessary stamina to continue forward,” said Troxel. “Even with challenges, buyer demand is still strong and homeownership remains a priority for many of our residents. Working with a Realtor who brings knowledge, experience and professionalism to the transaction helps to remove any anxiety a buyer or seller may have about finding success in one of the country’s most thriving markets.”
