Come Visit Now to Catch the Last of 2010’s Autumn Color and a Fine Selection of Smoky Mountain Homes

Smoky Mountain Road in Autumn

Time in 2010 to view the beauty of autumn leaf color, or to buy Gatlinburg real estate is almost over.  November’s winds and precipitation will soon strip the remaining foliage off all, but the hardiest of trees.  The countdown to finalize a real estate purchase in calendar year 2010 gets more challenging by the day.   

However, the good news is that the Smoky Mountains winter festivals are just beginning, and they will replace leaf viewing.  In addition, real estate purchases can be enhanced by a minimal amount of foliage.  Without the covering of leaves, more becomes visible.  Buyers can easily see the proximity of neighboring homes and structures.  Noise transmits better without the deadening buffer of leaves.  Long range views become available and the phrase “winter views” reveals itself.  Property searches that occur after leaves fall, reveal more details in the topography and give buyers a better “lay of the land”.  If you are motivated to find your East Tennessee real estate before 2011, you need to scramble.  Beginning your search online and getting pre-qualified for financing will greatly accelerate your purchase.  Our website is geared to assist in this search process.  If you are ready to view in person, and finalize on a property, be sure to call ahead well in advance of your arrival.  This allows your realtor to reserve a block of time necessary to accommodate your needs.   

The interesting part of visiting the Smokies after leaves fall, is that other activities ramp up as the year winds down.  Winter festivals increase as you proceed through November.  The Winter Festival begins November 8th in Sevierville with; free food, entertainment, fireworks, and the switch flip to begin Sevier County’s Holiday lighting.  Pigeon Forge follows on November 9th with their lighting displays, and Gatlinburg follows on November 10th with Winter Magic and a chili cook off.  These dates mark only the beginning of a lengthy holiday lighting season.  The food, entertainment, fireworks, and fun, add to the festive season.  This blog has only scratched the surface of a season filled with activities.  Go online and search out the perfect activities for you and your family and time your visit to coincide with these events.
