We really enjoy spending time with our new grandson so the real estate business has temporarily taken a backseat. Camden was born two weeks ago and we just can't get enough time with him.
On a business note, sales in our Smoky Mountain market continue to be off from last year, but September may break the slide as we are verrry close and sales from last month will likely continue to be posted. We just need a few more to be ahead of September 2016:
It is worth noting that year to date 2017 is still ahead of 2016 so if during the final quarter of this year sales continue to be close to the levels from a year ago, we should still finish ahead of last year. This would make 2017 the 6th consecutive positive year and the best year since 2005 which was the all-time high water mark.
