Nashville is one of Ten Markets Where Homebuilding Is Booming

As we look at the state of the Nashville real estate market, we have found that the number of home sales continues to increase and inventory remains low. These two factors directly affect new home construction… and numbers from MetroStudy show that Nashville is one of ten markets where homebuilding is booming.

In fact, the following markets are seeing some of the largest increases in homebuilding activity year-over-year in the second quarter:

  • Reno, Nev.
  • Rio Grande Valley, Texas
  • Southern California
  • Atlanta
  • Chicago
  • Nashville
  • St. George/Mesquite, Utah
  • Sarasota/Bradenton, Fla.
  • Charlotte, N.C.
  • Naples/Fort Myers, Fla.

New home construction starts and sales in Nashville both increased 9 percent in the second quarter, according to Metrostudy.

There were 1,402 new home sales in Nashville during the second quarter, up 9 percent from 1,287 closings on new homes in the same period of 2013, according to Eugene James, Metrostudy’s regional director. On an annual basis (for the twelve months ended June 2014), there were 6,138 new homes sold in the Nashville market, a 23 percent increase compared to the prior twelve months.

Here are the top 10 markets for year-over-year growth in housing starts based on second-quarter Metrostudy data.

Meanwhile, builders began construction of 1,592 new homes in Nashville in the second quarter, also a 9 percent year-over-year quarterly increase, James said. That’s a 21 percent increase on annual basis.

Metrostudy found there is a 1.7 months supply of finished homes on the market, which James said is below Nashville’s norm of 2 to 2.5 months.

“There’s an undersupply of houses that are immediately available,” James said. “The demand of houses is outpacing the supply. Builders are trying to build as many houses as they can to meet demand.”
