Nashville Home Sales and Prices Continue Increasing

Nashville’s housing market has rebounded stronger than anywhere else in the nation in the aftermath of the recession, according to a new study from the financial website SmartAsset.com. In April 2015, Nashville home sales and home prices continued to increase both month over month and year over year.

Nashville Home Sales

Nashville Home Sales and Prices Continue IncreasingAccording to the Greater Nashville Association of REALTORS, there were 2,940 home closings reported for the month of April 2015, representing an increase of 6.3 percent from the 2,767 closings reported for April 2014. Year-to-date closings total 9,844. That is a 7.8 percent increase compared to the 9,133 closings reported through April 2014.

Nashville Home Prices

Nashville’s median home price today is 11 percent higher than the peak values before the recession struck — a net growth that’s the best of the nation’s 100 largest metro areas. The median residential price for a single-family home during April was $224,975 and for a condominium it was $169,640. This compares with last year’s median residential and condominium prices of $204,905 and $158,000, respectively.

Inventory

In this fast-paced market with limited inventory, it’s important to work with a professional who buys and sells houses every day, handles the showings, answers questions, deals with appraisers, title companies and mortgage companies and provides their experience to make the sale go smoothly. Inventory at the end of April was 13,521, down from 15,637 in 2014. While spring inventory is increasing as predicted, it is not at a rate that can keep up with buyer demand.

If you are even considering selling your home, contact an expert realtor today. The truth is the inventory is needed and buyers are in the market. We expect the summer market to be fast-paced!
