There are some very encouraging national real estate market trends happening that could have a very positive effect on the market, as a whole, with these trends pointing to a continued, steady growth in the market, which we have seen for much of 2015 already, and could very well continue into the remainder of this year. One of these national trends is that consumer spending rose in May at its fastest rate in nearly 6 years, which helps to fuel the economy on the whole and could also lead to higher interest rates. Another trend is that existing home sales for May 2015 surged to a level not seen in the last 5 1/2 years, showing that housing and overall economic activity were gaining steam in the 2nd quarter of 2015. Also, you have first-time home buyers leading the market, accounting for 32% of home buying transactions nationally in May 2015 alone, coupled with stronger wage growth on the part of consumers, as well. Lastly, new home sales in May 2015 were 19.5% higher year-over-year nationally, showing additional considerable strength in the market nationally. What does this mean? It means that the national real estate market is heating up, and gaining strength as we continue through 2015 – very exciting times and opportunities for potential home buyers and sellers, to be sure.
With such promising trends as these nationally in the real estate market, along with still historically low interest rates, now is a great time to see what the Great Smoky Mountains real estate market can do for you and your home ownership dreams.
