Stats released by GNAR for June show homes sale are up in NashvillePosted by Gary Ashton: RE/MAX on Friday, July 16th, 2010 at 11:40am.
There were 2,416 homes sold in the month of June, according to figures provided by the Greater Nashville Association of REALTORS®. This is a figure that is up 15.5 percent compared to the results for sales in June 2009 of 2,09.
The 2nd quarter numbers are also up showing an invrease of just under 25% which equates to 6,831 closings compared to the precious period last year which had 5,478 closings.
The actual closings from January 2010 to the end of June 2010 in the Greater Nashville area show an increase of 19.3 percent
with equals 11,023 as compared to 9,240 closings for the same period last year.
“The current home sales data for Greater Nashville and Middle Tennessee show encouraging signs for our market,” said GNAR* President Lucy Smith. “For the ninth consecutive month we have seen an increase in home sales and every county saw home sales growth through mid-year. More good news is that Congress passed an extension of the Homebuyer Tax Credit closing deadline. This legislation gives many Middle Tennesseans an additional 90 days to complete their transactions. Originally, buyers under contract by April 30 needed to close by June 30 to qualify, but now have until Sept. 30 to close on their transactions. And, as interest rates remain remarkably low, now is a great time to explore the possibility of homeownership.”
Future homebuyers can learn more about the ins and outs of the actual home buyer and selling process by attending the Mayor’s Home Ownership Fair sponsored by Nashville Mayor Karl Dean on Sunday, July 25 from 1-5 p.m. at Bridgestone Arena.
