Better Late Than Never!!
Because of multiple members of our family being hospitalized recently, I have been preoccupied for the past couple of weeks and not able to post to this blog. Things are now starting to settle down and hopefully I will be fully back at work on Monday. Despite my being idle for the past couple of weeks, my excellent team did close several transactions during April. In fact, April was an excellent month for Sevier County residential real estate as you can see from the table below:
If you consider that 2015 was the best year since all the way back to 2006, it is extremely impressive that year to date 2016 is almost 100 units above the tally from 2015. I expect that 2016, barring something really odd, will handily beat 2015 and we may even get back to the record setting levels of 2005, when the real estate bubble was fully inflated. Despite the upturn, most experts do not think that our market nationally is in bubble territory. In fact, some of the most astute market analysts feel just the opposite, as my friend Linda DeVlieg posted on her blog recently. If you aren't already a homeowner, it's time to get onboard!
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...
