While the city of Nashville tends to dominate the headlines when it comes to real estate in Middle Tennessee, Williamson County is continuing to raise the eyebrows of both home buyers and home sellers.
According to recently released numbers from the Williamson County Association of Realtors, the median sales price for closings in Williamson County in March hit a record high of $433,850. If you’ve been paying attention to the market all over the Nashville area, however, the milestone is hardly surprising and it’s only further evidence that Williamson County is one of the fastest growing areas in all of Tennessee.
In addition to its growing sales prices, the number of homes sales in Williamson County in March, 448, is also the highest number for the month of March since 2007, just before the housing downturn began.
Furthermore, closings are also up 10% throughout the entire Greater Nashville area over the first quarter of 2016 according to the Greater Nashville Association of Realtors, which covers nine counties, including Williamson County.
So while the first day of spring always comes at the end of March, it looks like the traditionally busy spring market came just a little bit early this year. And if there’s anything we’ve learned about the Nashville and Williamson County real estate markets in recent months, things don’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon.
