Building an Ocean Liner in the Mountains?
Although it HAS rained a lot in the Gatlinburg area recently I didn't think it was reason for much concern but then I saw that progress on Pigeon Forge's newest attraction, the $25 million Titanic Museum, is really coming along. While this huge ship wouldn't make a good ark and won't ever even float the project is extremely impressive. Here is the photo I took this morning of the site as I drove by: Construction is progressing (when it doesn't rain) and the Pigeon Forge Titanic Museum is slated to open during the spring of next year. Although the christening of the ship may be delayed if it continues to rain the project will eventually look something like this artist's rendition:This is exactly the sort of major attraction that will complement our rapidly growing area so well. While we probably have more than enough music theatres this will add a full day's activity for vacationers. Another day's vacation equals more lodging nights, more restaurant meals, and more sales tax revenue for the county all of which is very good news. It is my understanding that several Sevier County located chain-type businesses are the best or near the best performing in their entire systems. With 11-12 million visitors annually and a great track record the Titanic may just be the first of several big-time venues coming to the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge, Sevierville area and all of this simply benefits real estate owners here. More jobs, more visitors, and more revenue is just what we are looking for as a community. For many more photos of the Titanic Museum in Pigeon Forge project and much more information please refer to their excellent pre-opening information site.

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...
