Gatlinburg and the Great Recession
The only negative is that rates have been somewhat discounted as competition heats up among property owners here in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge/Sevierville area. Marginal properties that don't have a view or some other notable quality are suffering which confirms one of my core beliefs when it comes to Smoky Mountain vacation rental real estate. A view is a must! If your property doesn't have a view it had better have a "walk to town" location or maybe a creek front setting or SOMETHING that makes it unique. Curb appeal is a necessity as well because almost all reservations are now made after an internet session. Without one of these features a property will have to be nearly given away to sell in our current market conditions.
