Housing Market Continues to Recover Across Middle Tennessee

Published Tuesday, September 8, 2020 1:00 pm


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (September 8, 2020) – There were 4,380 home closings reported for the month of August according to figures provided by Greater Nashville REALTORS. This figure is up six percent from the 4,140 closings reported for the same period last year.    

“The housing market is in full-on recovery mode,” said Kristy Hairston, Greater Nashville Realtors® president. “Over the last three months, we've seen continued growth in homes sales across the region. An increase in corporate relocation, second home purchases and emerging first-time buyers coupled with low-interest rates continue to make Middle Tennessee a leader in market recovery and with another month of high pending sales, September could bring a strong third quarter.”

"Residential housing inventory remains low across the region due to a decreased amount of available homes for sale in various areas. Lack of housing supply, means homes that are priced right are selling fast. If you are looking to navigate our vibrant, local housing market, it is imperative to use a Realtor.  More than an app, a Realtor knows the market and adheres to a strict code of ethics, thus ensuring you have accurate information allowing customers to make the best decision regarding their housing needs," added Hairston.
