Home Sales In Nashville Reach Historic High Once Again

Friday, August 7, 2020

There were 4,703 home closings in Nashville reported for the month of July according to figures provided by Greater Nashville Realtors. This figure is up 12 percent from the 4,189 closings reported for the same period last year.    

“Homes sales continue to rise in the Greater Nashville region,” said Kristy Hairston, Greater Nashville Realtors president. “It’s encouraging to see these numbers continue to rise despite the constant change in our economy.

In June, we started to see the market stabilize, and with the data we have today, it’s clear people continue to desire the Greater Nashville area as a prime destination for housing. Some of the factors contributing to the growth are, low-interest rates and consumers relocating to Nashville as remote working options are more available."
