Closing the Book on 2008
Now that we are nearly half way through January 2009 it is time to look back at the near final numbers for Gatlinburg area real estate sales by all Realtor firms in 2008. Analyzing the data, December, while not a barn burner by any means, was actually the least down when compared to the previous year's same month home sales. Sadly, December 2009's -23% when compared to December 2008 performance was the least down of the year. Overall, 2008's total tally of residential sales of 1408 was 37% below the Great Smoky Mountain Association of Realtors lackluster performance in 2007. December 2008 was actually sharply up from the record breaking miserable count in November 2008 of only 65 units.
What does all of this mean? While sales are still below recent year's performance levels buyers are starting to come out of hiding and interest rates are at historic lows. If you have been considering purchasing a Sevier County residence or second home (or any other type of real estate) please contact me! We were number one again in 2008 in total residential sales and look forward to helping you reach your real estate goals.
Every once in a while, an opportunity arises that we just can't pass up and this fantastic log sided home certainly fell into this category. Private, without another home anywhere in sight, this 3-bedroom, 3-bath house with 3 master suites is located in the coveted Pittman Center area and is perfect as either a residence or a vacation home.
This stunning property features over 280 feet of pristine riverfront on the beautiful cascading white water of the Little Pigeon River and this is no postage stamp sized lot either. It is actually a huge parcel of just under 4 acres. From either of the full length decks, you can view & listen to the beautiful rushing river below. Inside, there is also plenty of room to spread out, with over 3,000 square feet of heated & cooled living space, with large rooms and lots of glass.

Gatlinburg area sales rocketed past January 2016's tally and we haven't even got all of the sales reported yet. Because this is only the preliminary total, we could rocket past 2006's red-hot all time record of 210 sales. Here is the initial report of January 2017's blistering sales pace for Smoky Mountain residential real estate sales:
Because of some MLS data errors, January's average sales price is not shown on the report above, but hopefully will be soon...
