The Smoky Mountain Real Estate Market Continues To Climb

buyersroadA look at the Smoky Mountain real estate statistics shows a market that continues to improve. Today the National Association of REALTORS stated that 83% of agents are reporting constant or rising prices and we see the same trend in the Sevier County area. There are still concerns that event though mortgage rates remain low lending restrictions are too tight and holding back a speedier market recovery. Let’s see what the numbers have to say.

In the category of Total Residences Sold we do see a decline from the same period in 2012 with 58 less homes being sold.

Smoky Mountain Homes SoldEven though the number of homes sold decreased we see a much smaller decline in the Total Dollar Volume of homes sold through March.

Smoky Mountain Residential Sales VolumePrices continue a steady climb with a 12% increase over last year. This relates directly to the smaller decrease in total volume vs. number of homes sold. Home buyers who are in the market are ready, willing and able to purchase at this time.

Average Price Smoky Mountain HomesInventory is also decreasing with a decline of 8% from last year. This will continue to push the prices higher and help with the balancing of the market.
