Secondly, there is a pickup in activity levels with more inquiries from buyers viewing our http://www.gatlinburg-homes.com/ website. This important uptrend began a couple of months ago and will likely show up in an increased number of sales in the near future. In fact, I now have 6 pending sales set for May and will hopefully add a couple of more as the month progresses.
It remains, however, that Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge unit sales are not sufficient to support the current number of Realtors in our Great Smoky Mountain Association. While we have already dropped 100 agents from the all time high agent count set last year there are still far too many real estate agents in our market and some more will likely fall by the wayside.
Foreclosures are some of the only properties that are briskly selling in this environment and we have several new foreclosure homes that we will be bringing on the market during May. Please keep watching this blog as we are going to start publishing homes on this page as they are priced by the banks that are listing their properties with us.
