For much of the year, we have watched as both the National and local Real Estate markets have gained and shown a steady climb to positive numbers. As we look at the statistics for the Smoky Mountain market through June of this year, we will see that the trend continues. Let’s see what the numbers have to say.
In the category of Residences Sold, we see a slight decrease versus last year of 8%. This represents 53 less homes sold in comparison to the same period in 2012. Even with the decrease in this number, as we look at the rest of the statistics, we will see that the market is still fairly stable and we expect this to continue and improve.
In the category of Residential Dollar Volume for the year, we also see a slight decrease. This directly relates to the decrease in number of homes sold, but remains a slight number as prices are still rising.
Good news for sellers in the Average Sold Price Category. In line with statistics so far for the year, prices still show a rise versus 2012. As inventory continues to decrease, we expect prices to continue to gradually increase.
Available homes on the market continue to decline. Through June, we see a decrease of 3%, or 109 less homes on the market. As activity continues to stabilize, this number will continue to dwindle.
As markets continue to stabilize across the Nation, prices will continue their rise and inventory will continue to decrease. Mortgage rates are still at all time lows and there are still plenty of housing options to choose from.
