Housing Market Off To Fast Start In Nashville

There were 2,632 home closings reported for the month of January, according to figures provided by Greater Nashville Realtors. This figure is up 15.7 percent from the 2,274 closings reported for the same period last year.   

“The housing market is off to a great start for 2020,” said Kristy Hairston, Greater Nashville Realtors president. "With increased sales in January, a large number of pending sales and low mortgage rates, February looks to be another active month in the Greater Nashville Area.”

“Demand is outpacing inventory, which leads to higher prices," said Ms. Hairston. "Working with a realtor can help you determine your best housing option. Shopping for homes is not just price comparisons online; it’s understanding neighborhoods, school options, and evaluating what the right move is for you. More than an app, a Realtor walks with you every step of the way in your homeownership journey. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a homeowner, contact a Realtor."
