Stats are out for the month of November for Williamson and Davidson County, and the numbers are encouraging.
In Williamson County, the actual number of closings is down comparative to last year. The main reason for this to take place is inventory in the Williamson County area is down comparative to the last two years. This isn’t necessarily bad news, it just means people may need to do more digging to find the home they want and when they do find that home, be ready to pull the trigger on purchasing. The great news in Williamson County is the average sales price has gone up almost $60,000 over last year to an average price of $462,844. The days the home spends listed on the market is also down two weeks over last year.
In Davidson County, closings are actually up with inventory being quite a bit lower than last year. The median price on homes in Davidson rose almost $16,000 over last year to a median price of $195,000. Average days on market is similar to Williamson County with a home typically sitting on the market for 70 days.

If you’re looking for something to do this weekend in Nashville, I suggest heading over to Tennessee Brew Works for their Grand Opening Party this Friday from 5-9 pm. They have been open a few weeks now and I confess I have been a few times already.
They have a great renovated building with live music on the weekends. Hang out on the first floor at a whiskey barrel table while listening to music and viewing what’s going on in the brewery. Have a big party? Head upstairs where there is another bar with tables and flat screens. I have tried every beer and I suggest going with the Basil Ryeman. I’m sure you haven’t tried anything like it. Head over to their website and check them out. Find more info on their party here: http://us5.campaign-archive2.com/?u=daf111c7b54075e59c966dc9e&id=0e810a77dd. Their website is http://tnbrew.com.
There is a new hangout opening today downtown near Rolling Mill Hill. This place appears to have something for everyone, check out this excerpt from their website: “Think of us as a comfortable place to work with a cup of coffee in the morning or a casual lunch with a co-worker. Think of us as a place to meet friends for cocktails and dinner. Think of us as a place to play, whether that means bowling or singing karaoke”

Welcome to my blog. I just started this blog in addition to over blogs I run on different websites. This will be a space to see how the market is performing, receive tips on home improvement, get Nashville real estate news, and find out what’s going on in the community. Also, I try to throw some laughs in occasionally.
Today, I’m bringing a blog series that I have been writing about on my other blogs. It’s holiday inspired with 11 reasons you should list your home during the holidays. We’re up to number five, so here’s a quick recap:
#1. Some buyers have a need or want to buy before the end of the year for tax purposes.
#2. Buyers have more time to look for a home during the holidays than they do during the work week. #3. Buyers are more emotional during the holidays and will tend to pay your asking price.
#4. Homes show better when they’re decorated.
Here we are with today with #5. Supply increases in January. List in Winter when there is less demand which means more money!
Check back tomorrow for the next entry.
