The number of transactions reported for February 2013 was 1,784, which represents an increase of nearly 28 percent over the February 2012 number of 1,515. This number also represents the highest number of closings in February since 2008, and we know 2008 was a record setting sales year!
The number of PENDING sales is 2,269 compared to 1,832 at the same time last year which shows the market will probably continue in the upward trend we have been experiencing over the last few months.
The inventory of homes for sale continues to fall. The inventory at the end of February was 15,651 which is down from 18,271 a…

Just passing along how “HOT” some areas of the local real estate market are currently. There was a house last week listed in the 12th South / Belmont area. The Asking price was $325,000. There were 7 offers the first day, and the house finally sold for $340,000.
Another situation I had with one of my listings last week was a bank foreclosure with 2 additional lots in the Forest Hills area near Green Hills. I listed the properties in the MLS on Monday. By Tuesday afternoon, I had 2 contracts on the house and 3 contracts on each lot.
If you are planning to buy or sell real estate in this market this year, you need to call or send me an e-mail for the latest market information and possible marketing or buying opportunities. As a buyer, be aware that many

The Available Inventory of HOMES FOR SALE in many areas of Nashville and Williamson County (Including Brentwood, Cool Springs, Franklin, and Spring Hill/Thompson Station) is beginning to reach a stage we have not seen in many years. As this market has transitioned from a “Buyer’s” to a “Seller’s” market, we continue to see more frequent situations where Sellers are receiving multiple offers on their homes. This is a phenomenon that we have not seen much in the last couple of years. The inventory of HOMES FOR SALE recently released by the Greater Nashville Association of Realtors supports this information. As of December 31, 2012, there were 15,054 properties available in the area compared to 17,216 at the same time in 2011. This is a fairly…

One of the most popular pages for visitors to my website is Downtown Franklin Homes For Sale. The Downtown area of Franklin has really changed – for the better - over the last 20 years. When I was in high school in Franklin in the mid 1970’s, the biggest event on Main Street was the driving of tractors to the town “Square” on Friday nights. That is when Franklin was a sleepy, little farming/agricultural town and area. It is nothing like that today. Tourists and locals flock to the area now to see the family shops, eat lunch and dinner on the sidewalks, and just sit on a bench and “people watch”. The family drug store and local banks are long gone. Today you get everything from a chain store like Chico’s to local meat and three restaurants…

Many potential Home Sellers are reluctant to put their homes on the market right now. I know that for a fact as a result of a recent experience with one of my clients who is a CASH BUYER. I met with these new clients a couple of weeks ago. They had a pretty good idea of what kind of house they wanted and some specific neighborhoods that particularly appealed to them because of their location to schools. We looked on the MLS and what did we see?? NOT MUCH AVAILABLE! As an example, there were actually 2 houses listed in the MLS in one of the neighborhoods that we targeted. One of those listed was just not going to work, and the other, while a very nice house, is listed for sale for almost $2M. The current owner bought the house for almost $1.7M in early…
