Smoky Mountain Homes Are Moving Fast In 2012

We are still experiencing some glitches with the Great Smoky Mountains Association of REALTORS statistical reporting however some data is available. This week we would like to take a look at how 2012 is shaping up so far for the Smoky Mountain real estate market. The numbers below are for Sevier County single family residences and show a positive trend in a few key areas over last year.

In our first category of Residences Sold Through April we see good news with a total of 58 more homes sold in 2012.

As we take a look at the Total Volume Sold through April we see the numbers very close to 2011 with only a 3% decrease.

The category of Average Sold Price is also down from last year. This is still encouraging news as we see that in April almost half of the properties sold were foreclosures being liquidated. It is positive to see banks taking the needed steps to get distressed properties sold and off the market. As this continues to happen at a rapid pace we will start to see prices leveling out again.

In the last category, Average Days On Market, we again see a positive trend over last year with 30 less days this year than in 2011.

May continues to be busy in 2012 with a flurry of buyer activity in the area. Now is the time to take advantage of some of the great deals that are still to be had. Whether you are looking for an investment, vacation home or even land to build on, plenty of opportunities are available. Take a look at our website to browse all that the region has to offer.
