Quotes From GNAR President

“We are continuing to sell more homes with effectively less inventory every month, and that’s keeping the Nashville market among the hottest in the country,” said Creswell. “We finished 19th on the list of the hottest markets for October according to, and were the only southern state, not including Texas, to make the list. Even if sales remain flat for November and December, our region is set to finish ahead of 2015 with overall sales.”

“We have entered the final quarter of 2016 in the best possible way,” said GNAR President Denise Creswell. “Our housing market is maintaining the kind of stable growth needed to sustain a healthy market in the last few months of the year. These mild gains in sales are exactly what it takes to build the foundation for a solid housing market in 2017.”

What’s Pending?

We saw a nice increase in pending home sales at the end of the month as well. There were a reported 3,306 sales pending, compared to the  2,905 pending sales we saw this time last year. The average number of days on the market was also down 7 days at 51 days on market.
