There were 3,141 home closings reported for the month of March, according to figures provided by the Greater Nashville Association of REALTORS®. This figure represents a 10.7 percent increase compared to the 2,837 closings in March 2015. We love our growing city!!
“Home sales performed well in the Nashville area in March, rounding out a solid first quarter in the market,” said GNAR President Denise Creswell. “We experienced double-digit increases for both the month of March and the first quarter, compared to 2015. Each of the nine counties in our reporting area saw increases in residential sales for the quarter; all but one had increases in residential median price, as well.”
“Spring is typically the official kickoff of the housing market’s busy season, however our market was busy way before that. Given the continued low interest rates and pent-up buyer demand, don’t expect a slowdown anytime soon,” said Creswell.
“According to the most recent jobs report, 215,000 jobs were added in March. Continued growth in the job sector boosts consumer confidence and adds more potential buyers and competition to the marketplace. All buyers should be prepared to act swiftly upon finding the right property and to face multiple offers in some situations. Working with a Realtor helps buyers to navigate our fast-paced market.”
