Nashville Home Sales Up 18% This February

According to GNAR there were 1,784 home closings reported for the month of February

 

This represents an increase of nearly 18 percent from the 1,515 closings reported in February 2012. Year-to-date closings through February are 3,418, an 18.2 percent increase from the 2,892 closings reported through February 2012.

 

“The home sales data for February indicates another increase in both home purchases and pending sales compared to last year,” said GNAR President Price Lechleiter. “And this month also marks the highest amount of closings in February since 2008.   This is the eighteenth consecutive month of increased year-over-year closings.

 

“The housing market recovery in this region is proving to be sustainable, particularly in light of the seasonal increases in home sales activity anticipated in the coming months. The current trends are certainly positive, but long-term planning is needed to keep our city and region vibrant and attractive in the future. With that in mind, GNAR is fully engaged in the NashvilleNext initiative and commends those who are leading that process.”

 

A comparison of sales by category for February is:

 

February 2012 February 2013      
CLOSINGS  1,515 1,784
Residential 1,251 1,481
Condominium 128 180
Multi-Family 22 24
Farms/Lands/Lots 114 99

 

There were 2,269 sales pending at the end of the month, compared with 1,832 pending sales at this time last year. The average number of days on the market for a single-family home was 84 days.

 

The median residential price for a single-family home during February was $175,000, and for a condominium it was $138,473. This compares with median residential and condominium prices of $159,900 and $145,000, respectively at this time last year.

 

Inventory at the end of February was 15,651 down from 18,271 in February 2012. The current inventory of properties by category, compared to last year, is:

 

 

February 2012 February 2013     
INVENTORY      18,271 15,651
Residential 11,258 9,491
Condominium 1,559 1,223
Multi-Family 301 213
Farms/Land/Lots 5,153 4,724

 

“According to the National Association of Realtors, pending home sales were up over last year in every region of the country, including the South.  In the Greater Nashville area, there were more than 2,000 pending sales last month. Pending sales have not been above 2,000 since February 2008, so this is welcome news,” added Lechleiter.  “Inventory is consistently lower than what it was in recent years. With positive sales trends and low inventory, it is likely that more people will consider putting their homes on the market soon. It is important for sellers to understand that buyers are expecting homes to be market ready and priced correctly in order to seriously consider a purchase.”
