Looking for Listings!
Our market is severely lacking affordable residential real estate listings. In fact, the under $200,000 segment of our Sevier County residential market has very few suitable properties available for sale. For example, if you are searching for a 3 bedroom (or more), 2 bathroom (or more) home with at least 1500 square feet of finished space, for under $200,000 there are only 36 total listings available in Sevier County that match these specs. Furthermore, the median asking price of these listings is over $186,000. There just isn't much available and this is one major reason why sales have slowed. There just isn't enough inventory available for buyers to consider. My, how the market has changed compared to a few years ago when it was such a buyer's market!
If you are even thinking of selling, now is a great time to list your property. Please let us know if you would like to chat about what your property can bring in today's market!
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:
Too busy to post doesn't really say it all. We have been in an absolute deluge, with all sorts of things happening including this fellow: 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.
