Gatlinburg Anticipates Yet Another Snow
The National Weather Service is now forecasting an average of 1-3 inches of snow for our Gatlinburg area region and based on the radar tracking it looks like it just might happen. With a series of milder winters behind us, Gatlinburg's ski resort (Ober Gatlinburg) and area school children are absolutely loving this cooler weather and the resulting snow. With 3 snowfalls already this season, we are already experiencing more of the white stuff than usual and it appears that we aren't finished yet. Like most Smoky Mountain area snows, this one won't stay on the ground long but because of the much cooler than typical temperatures it will likely stick to the roads for awhile as well as the unpaved ground. We usually get more snow in the mountains than we do here in the valley and they also make snow at the ski slopes. If you haven't been skiing at Ober Gatlinburg, here is a link to slope snow conditions from their site.

Last month, I expressed some concern that our 2012 winning streak for Smoky Mountain residential real estate sales was going to be broken. Unlike the first 8 months of the 2012, September's results did NOT exceed those of September 2011. I also reminded readers that one month does not a trend make and that we would need to wait a couple of months to get a clearer indication of where our Gatlinburg area real estate market was headed. That caution turns out to be quite well thought because the latest residential sales results for our Gatlinburg area real estate market seem to be much better, with the early results already being better than most recent year's October results. Here is my preliminary table showing the good news:
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...
