Reviewing the Nashville market updateWhat does this mean for you?


Buyers, the decrease in active inventory listings in the Nashville market means you have a smaller selection to choose from that before. However, the decrease in the number of units sold is a plus for buyers. Fewer sales could indicate an opportunity for buyers to negotiate better terms!


Sellers, the decrease in the number of active listings means that there is less competition in the market. The average number of days home spent on the market decreased from 39 days last year to 36 days this August. This lower number of days on market signals a positive trend in the local inventory turnover rate! Sellers are able to sell their home faster than before.
