Nashville Median Home Price is UP, but so is Inventory

The Greater Nashville Association of REALTORS® has just released data for July 2018 in the greater Nashville real estate market.  While the median price has risen nearly $19,000 in just a year's time, the amount of inventory has also risen nearly 20%.  Full text from the article is posted below:



Middle Tennessee Housing Inventory Continues to Rise NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Aug. 7, 2018) – 
There were 3,812 closings reported for the month of July, according to figures provided by Greater Nashville REALTORS®. This represents a 1.5 percent decrease from the 3,872 closings reported for July 2017. Year-to-date closings total 23,242 a 0.5 percent decrease compared to the 23,365 closings reported through July 2017. 
 “The numbers in July show a slight decrease in closings compared to 2017, but the market remains stable as we continue to see a steady inventory increase,” said Greater Nashville REALTORS® President Sher Powers. “We are pleased to see inventory continue to grow across Middle Tennessee, which is not the case in other markets across the country.” 
 A comparison of sales by category for July is: 
2017 CLOSINGS:
Residential:  3,872
Condominium: 439
Multi-Family: 22
Farms/Land/Lots:  163
2018 CLOSINGS:
Residential:  3,812
Condominium: 378
Multi-Family: 41
Farms/Land/Lots:  161 
There were 3,347 properties under contract at the end of the month, compared to the 3,575 properties under contract at this time last year. 
The average number of days on the market for a single-family home was 25 days. 
 The median residential price for a single-family home during July was $307,000 and for a condominium it was $222,750. This compares with last year’s median residential and condominium prices of $288,243 and $203,000. 
Active inventory at the end of July was 11,671 which increased from 9,151 in 2017. The current inventory of properties by category, compared to last year, is: 
2017 INVENTORY:
Residential:  6,177
Condominium:  513
Multi-Family:  67
Farms/Land/Lots: 2,394
2018 INVENTORY:
Residential:  8,323
Condominium:  927
Multi-Family:  91
Farms/Land/Lots:  2,330
“The continued increase in inventory can lead to a more balanced and healthy market across Middle Tennessee, calming the steady pricing increases we've seen in the past few years, which in turn may inspire buyers on the fence to start their home buying search,” said Powers.

Having Trouble Finding Nashville-area homes under $200,000?

With inventory levels of homes under $200k as low as many can remember (arguably the lowest ever!) I'm always keeping an eye out for areas of opportunity or current market trends.  I've been noticing a lot of good options in LaVergne and Smyrna, two Nashville suburbs on the southeast side of the city.  Smyrna is located about 20 miles southeast of downtown Nashville, while LaVergne is around 16 miles via Murfreesboro Pike.  I-24 gives a faster option into downtown with just a few extra miles.  
Smyrna is full of parks and recreational activities, and has access to Percy Priest Lake.
