Nashville Home Sales Are High—but if Not for Low Inventory, They’d Be Even Higher

Nashville home sales continue to make headlines not only locally, but nationally. In fact, Freddie Mac recently ranked Nashville the top housing market in the country. Check out Freddie Mac’s news release here and explore the numbers for Nashville and other cities.

Nashville Home Sales Are High—but if Not for Low Inventory, They’d Be Even HigherThe Greater Nashville Association of REALTORS® reported year-over-year home sales were up in June and for the first quarter of 2016 as a whole. Houses are flying off the market at the fastest rate since 2007, so we know that buyers must be working hard to find that perfect home and get it under contract. Harder than ever, perhaps.

Insights from daily surveys of visitors to realtor.com® tell us that their biggest challenge is the low inventory of available homes, which is holding us back from seeing even more sales.

In June, the No.1 obstacle to making a purchase, as reported by 40% of buyers on realtor.com, was simply finding a home that met their needs. This was also the top problem last June, but then only 37% of buyers reported the issue.

And it’s no wonder that more people are reporting that just finding a home is a problem. We have about 13% more people looking to buy this summer, yet there are fewer homes for sale.

If you are thinking about selling, now is the time to do so. The fall will be affected by factors such as school starting, weather shifting, and a new president gets elected. All will likely make this fall slower than usual, especially relative to the very busy spring and summer. Our expert agents at The Lipman Group Sotheby’s International Realty have the skills, knowledge and connections to sell your home in the shortest amount of time.

5 Ideas for a Nashville Staycation this Summer

With the month of June and the 4th of July holiday in the rearview mirror, school is starting soon (yikes!). If traveling won’t fit in your remaining few weeks of summer, staying close to home doesn’t have to drag on. We’ve compiled a list of great things to do in Nashville that’ll take only a short car ride. (Or even a short walk!) Create your own summer staycation with these five ideas:

1. Outdoorsy Fun
When you have a craving for some natural beauty – or at least a break from icy air conditioning, explore a new park, plan a picnic, stop and smell the flowers at Cheekwood, or catch a Nashville Sounds baseball game.

2. Cool Off in the Water
Some days you need to beat the summer heat. You might not have a resort pool at your disposal, but you can visit a local splash pad or aquatic center, or just play in the backyard with hoses, squirt guns, and water balloons.

5 Ideas for a Nashville Staycation this Summer

Cumberland Park’s innovative play areas have several water features in order to keep cool. The Hollow’s water features include a rainbow area, a “cloud bridge” with rain curtains and interactive splash pad while The Scoops is a cooling off area that features a stepping-stone path with mist features.

3. Splurge on an activity you wouldn’t normally do
Since you’re not spending money on traveling, do something fun that wouldn’t normally be in your budget, like renting stand up paddleboards or kayaks, going to the Nashville Escape Game, or spend time enjoying the multi-activities at Pinewood Social.

4. Camp Out
Pitch the tent in your backyard… or just your living room! Pile it up with blankets and cushions and then tell scary stories by flashlight. If you are in the backyard, find some binoculars and a stargazing guide for a unique activity.

5 Ideas for a Nashville Staycation this Summer

Baseball meets Art at First Tennessee Park with this mini golf that features Nashville artists.

5. Visit a museum and Enjoy the Arts
Nashville has museums both big and small. Recent exhibits include The Italian Automotive Renaissance at Frist Center, International Playhouses at Cheekwood, and The Country Club at First Tennessee Park. The Country Club, a nine-hole miniature golf course which features a different local Nashville artist for each hole, is a unique example of combining arts and business in a platform the entire community can enjoy.

Have fun!
