Enchanting North Hllls 3 bedroom home, ready for you to move in and enjoy.

Currently in Knox County, Tennessee there are 3.461 single family homes listed for sale along with 987 condos. Year to date in 2010 360 of those single family homes have been placed in “Sale Pending” status which means sold but not yet closed; and 55 condos. Most listings that make it to sale pending status end up closing although not all, due to home inspection issues, buyer financing, and other reasons.

The chart below is the sold listings year to date versus actives as of February 15th, 2010.

January 2010 compared to past Januarys

January 2010 closed sales beat January 2009 by 90 units but even that number is still way below previous January’s. It appears from these numbers that our volume is back to where it was in Januarys 2001 & 2002.

According to some figures from the average listing price is down somewhat which means there are more lower priced homes coming on the market now than upper price range ones

So far this year we’ve seen a very modest improvement in sales numbers but still quite a bit below previous years. Prices remain weak too with discounts being the order of the day in homes that sell and close.
