A Brief Primer on Sevier County and Its History

DSC05162

Every year, millions of people come to our area to visit the Great Smoky Mountains, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, Dollywood, and much more. In addition, there is also a significant amount of history in Sevier County that people may or may not be aware of, and how rich and abundant that history is in this area. Such history helps to create a truly unique community and area, and today, we want to give people an opportunity to learn some of this history of Sevier County, and how it continues to influence our area’s culture and communities.

Prior to the 18th Century, Sevier County was largely inhabited by nomadic and semi-nomadic Native American tribes, including the Muskeogan tribes, and then the Cherokee by the 17th Century. Spanish explorers, such as Hernando De Soto and Juan Pardo also first visited this area during the 16th Century. In the mid-18th Century, settlers began to arrive into what would become known as Sevier County.

On September 18, 1794, Sevier County was formed from a part of neighboring Jefferson County, and was named after U.S. Brigadier General John Sevier, who also was the Governor of the one-time State of Franklin, which bordered modern-day Tennessee and North Carolina, and then was Governor of Tennessee. Sevier played a large role in settling the area, and in 1795, the county seat of Sevierville was established.

During the Civil War, Sevier County had divided loyalties between the Union and the Confederacy, but was largely pro-Union on part of many people in the area at the start of hostilities. Both Union and Confederate forces fought frequent skirmishes throughout the area, as each side jockeyed for control of the area, including nearby Knoxville, which was a strategic focus during the war, especially later into the conflict.

After the war, Sevier County continued to grow and expand on through the start of the 20th Century. In 1934, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park officially opened, along with the completion of U.S. Highway 441 to Sevierville and then into North Carolina, shortly thereafter. This led to ten of thousands of tourists to come and visit the area, which now numbers in millions of people that visit our area every year. Tourism is now the largest part of the local economy in Sevier County, and continues to grow to this day. A large part of this tourism every year also centers around Dollywood, the theme park named after the world-famous singer and entertainer, Dolly Parton, who is a Sevier County native.

Today, Sevier County remains steeped in its unique history, while also welcoming many to the area to see the wonder of the Smokies, the many attractions of the area, and much, much more. Sevier County also host many unique events in and around the County, including Sevierville’s largest annual event, the Sevierville Bloomin’ BBQ and Bluegrass  Festival, which is actually being held this weekend, from May 16-17, in historic downtown Sevierville. There are numerous other events each year, as well, involving the communities of Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

With such a unique area as Sevier County, it is no wonder why so many people decide to come to visit this area each year, and possibly even making this area their home.

Heading Into 2014, The Great Smoky Mountain Real Estate Market Continues to Show Slow, But Steady, Growth

The Road To Recovery

Throughout this past year, we have seen both the national and local real estate markets continue to show slow, but steady, growth on the whole. As we look at the statistics for the Great Smoky Mountain real estate market through December of this past year, we will see that these trends, particularly in this real estate market, are largely holding steady, as we now begin into a new year. Let’s now see what the numbers have to say.

In the category of Residences Sold, we see that in comparing December 2013 to that of December 2012, the number of residences sold held steady with an increase by 1% in terms of homes sold, in that 13 more homes were sold as of December 2013, as opposed to December 2012. This continues a trend of steadiness, and even very slight growth, in the real estate market as a whole, and as we look at the rest of the statistics, we will see that the market does indeed reflect a steady and slowly growing trend on balance, and we see that the market continues to show gradual, but steady, growth on the aggregate.

RESIDENCES SOLD - GRAPH 1

In the category of Residential Dollar Volume for the year, we see an increase of 7% through December of 2013, as opposed to through December in 2012. With the steadiness of the numbers as it relates to Residences Sold, the recent local and national trends of increasing home prices still continue to show that a greater dollar volume in homes are being sold, along with still continuing to show a slow and strengthening market reflective of greater confidence on the part of both buyers and sellers.

TOTAL RESIDENTIAL VOLUME - GRAPH 2

There is also continued good news for sellers in the Average Sold Price Category. In line with statistics so far for the past year, prices still show a slow, but gradual, rise of 6% in December of this year versus that of December 2012, reflecting the recent local and national trends towards gradually higher home prices. As confidence continues to grow between potential buyers and sellers in the market as a whole, we see that the trend of higher home prices will likely continue for the foreseeable future.

AVERAGE SOLD PRICE - GRAPH 3

 

In addition, available homes on the market are actually increasing in terms of inventory. Through December 2013, as opposed to December 2012, there is a slight increase by 1% of homes being listed as available on the market, or an increase of 29 more available homes on the market, in December 2013, as opposed to December 2012. We see that higher home prices, as well as the very slight increases in homes being sold, may be contributing to more people wanting to place their homes on the market, thereby causing a slight increase in available housing inventory. While it is still too early to tell if the trend will continue into 2014, there are more available homes on the market in December 2013, as opposed to one year ago, which could further indicate greater confidence on the part of those wanting to place their homes on the market.

AVAILABLE INVENTORY - GRAPH 4

 

As markets continue this gradual trend of growth locally and across the nation, these statistics, heading into 2014, are largely expected to remain steady, showing continued slow, but steady, strength and growth into the new year. Mortgage rates still remain at historically low rates, and there are still plenty of housing options to choose from, especially in the Great Smoky Mountain real estate market. Why not start your Great Smoky Mountain home search now by visiting our website, browsing our available properties, and seeing what the Smoky Mountain area has to offer for you?

Heading Into November, The Great Smoky Mountain Real Estate Market Continues to Show Slow, But Steady, Growth

The Road To Home Ownership

For much of this year, we have seen both the national and local real estate markets continue to show slow, but steady, growth on the whole. As we look at the statistics for the Great Smoky Mountain real estate market through October of this year, we will see that these trends, particularly in this real estate market, are continuing, even in spite of the recent government shutdown. Let’s now see what the numbers have to say.

 

In the category of Residences Sold, we see that in comparing October 2013 to that of October 2012, the number of residences sold actually increased by 1% in terms of homes sold, in that 11 more homes were sold as of October 2013, as opposed to October 2012. This continues a trend of steadiness, and even very slight growth, in the real estate market as a whole, and as we look at the rest of the statistics, we will see that the market does indeed reflect a steady and slowly growing trend on balance, and we expect this to continue and improve over time.

In the category of Residential Dollar Volume for the year, we actually see an increase of 6% through October of this year, as opposed to through October in 2012. With the steadiness of the numbers as it relates to Residences Sold, the recent local and national trends of increasing home prices continue to show that a greater dollar volume in homes are being sold, along with continuing to show a slow and strengthening market reflective of greater confidence on the part of both buyers and sellers.

There is also continued good news for sellers in the Average Sold Price Category. In line with statistics so far for the year, prices still show a slow, but gradual, rise of 5% in October of this year versus that of October 2012, reflecting the recent local and national trends towards higher home prices. As inventory continues to decrease, we expect average home prices to continue their slow and gradual increase, in line with both national and local real estate market trends.

In addition, available homes on the market are actually increasing at the moment. Through October 2013, as opposed to October 2012, there is an increase by 1% of homes being listed as available on the market, or an increase of 69 available homes on the market, in October 2013, as opposed to October 2012. We see that higher home prices, as well as the very slight increases in homes being sold, may be contributing to more people wanting to place their homes on the market, thereby causing a slight increase in available housing inventory. While it is too early to tell if the trend will continue, there are more available homes on the market in October 2013, as opposed to one year ago, which could indicate greater confidence on the part of those wanting to place their homes on the market.

As markets continue this gradual trend of growth locally and across the nation, home prices will continue their rise and housing inventory will continue to decrease. Mortgage rates still remain at historically low rates, and there are still plenty of housing options to choose from, especially in the Great Smoky Mountain real estate market.
