It's a Long Time Until April!
A friend who is a local's local, born and raised here in the Gatlinburg area commented to me recently the title of this post. What he was referring to is that many individuals (and businesses) here in the East Tennessee Smoky Mountains rely on a cash surplus built during the more profitable summer months to survive the much slower winter season. This is particularly true of lodging businesses, retail shops, and restaurants. The April to October period is MUCH more profitable for these operations than the November to March time frame and in fact many of these businesses generate the lion share of their revenues during the summer months when families with children can freely travel. Sadly, the economy's blues have impacted Sevier County this summer and most of our area's attractions are reporting receipts down 30-35% when compared to last year. This is especially true of Pigeon Forge's Dollywood which , with it's high priced tickets, is off dramatically from their plan. for the businesses and their employees that haven't had a great summer season, the idea of a typically (or worse) slow winter period is not at all welcome. Fortunately, the real estate business here in the Smokies is not as seasonal as it once was and we have had an excellent summer. In fact, the Gatlinburg foreclosure real estate opportunities continue to be excellent and we are in the process of setting sales records at our real estate firm. For businesses (and individuals) that haven't enjoyed this sort of success it may be a long winter indeed...
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.
Should you ever become tired of being alone, Dollywood is less than 20 minutes away but you would never know it from how perfectly peaceful this location is:

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...
