Very rarely do I read an article and want to share the ENTIRE article with you guys, but it happened recently with The Tennessean. The article was titled “Nashville’s annual home sales top 30,000 for first time since 2007.”
The tittle alone is wonderful to read, but there are some other great points made.
- The overall 18.5% gain in home sales for 2013 reflects that Nashville is further along in the U.S. housing recovery than many other metro areas. – Alex Miron, an economist with Moody’s Analytics
- A key driver of local home sales is that employment growth here has been running at a pace twice the U.S. average. – Alex Miron
- The median price of a single-family home rose nearly 6 percent for December from a year ago to $198,838; it was up nearly 2 percent from November. – Richard Exton, an appraiser at Manier and Exton in Nashville
These are just a few of the points made in the market review that Getahn Ward wrote for the newspaper. Take a few minutes to read the full article. I hope you will be as excited as I am about where Nashville’s real estate market is today and where it is going in 2014!
