According to the Greater Nashville Realtors, 2017 was the best year on record for the Middle Tennessee housing market. The group says nearly 41,000 homes sold last year, about a 4 percent increase from 2016.

That broke the previous record, which had been set in 2006, before the Great Recession.

You’ve heard this one before: Nashville area home sales reached a new record last month. According to local real estate agents, the median price for a single-family home in the Nashville area hit $279,000 in May.

November home sales in the Nashville area made their largest leap all year, jumping by 24 percent compared to the same month in 2015. And realtors have a theory as to why: The outcome of the presidential election.


Nashville’s real estate market may be more active than ever, but currently the city’s home sales are flat, according to new data from the Greater Nashville Association of Realtors.

The lackluster sales for the last few months might be tied more to low inventory than to reluctant buyers. According to realtors, the city’s residential inventory is down by seven percent from this time last year.

The housing market in the Nashville area is approaching never-before-seen levels. And that has created a spike in sellers that are bypassing real estate agents. But some are questioning their decision to post a “for sale by owner” sign in the yard.
