Nashville Home Sales Up 25%

Nashville Real Estate Trends

According to the Greater Nashville Association of Realtors there were 2,186 home closings reported for the month of April.  Represents an increase of 25 percent from the 1,747 closings reported for April, 2011.

Year-to-date closings are also up compared to 2011 with 7,041. That is a 24.5 percent increase compared to the 5,655 closings reported through April 2011.

“Total sales are the best we’ve seen since June 2010, which was the initial deadline for the First Time Buyer Tax Credit,” said GNAR President Kendra Cooke. “While some of the increase can be attributed to normal seasonal trends, the high number of closings is a clear indication that the real estate market in this region is showing significant improvement. The continuation of historically low interest rates, increasing economic confidence and increasing rental rates are all factors having a positive impact on real estate sales.”

“Inventory is down, but with overall inventory at a 9-month supply and residential inventory at a very balanced 6.5-month supply. Right now, sellers will want to be sure their homes are well-prepared for showing. While market activity is increasing, buyers are very focused on properties they visit being clean and fixed-up if they are going to seriously consider making a purchase.” added Cooke.
