Nashville Real Estate NewsIt’s official—Nashville and the rest of Middle Tennessee has the nation’s strongest residential market; at least according to researchers at Freddie Mac. 

As we enter the middle of the summer—what’s usually a slow time in real estate—reflecting back on the crazy spring we saw revealed just how robust Nashville real estate has been in recent months. Statistics show the Nashville’s Multi-Indicator Market Index reading was 99.9 in April and 98.3 in March, which equates to a massive 12% jump from those same months in 2015.

Nashville Real Estate NewsWhile the summer season is traditionally a slow time in the world of Nashville real estate, Nashville-area home sales were once again up during the month of June when compared to this time in 2015. 

Albeit a small increase, much of the Middle Tennessee region saw 3,869 total homes sold last month, which is about a 1.7% increase from June of 2015. According to the Nashville Association of Realtors, home sales in April were up nearly 12% while home sales in May nearly 4% compared to 2015, so we are still seeing a bit of a slowdown when looking at figures solely from 2016. 

Unfortunately for home buyers, home prices in the Nashville area are also continuing to rise, with the median price for a single-family home sold in June jumping to $260,148—a

Nashville Real Estate Market TrendsThe Greater Nashville Association of Realtors has released the latest numbers relating to the Nashville real estate market, which show median home prices in the area are up a whopping 10% from this time last year. At last check, single-family homes are now commanding a median home price of $258,900, which as mentioned is up 10% from May 2015. The spike in prices undoubtedly relates to a tightening inventory, which continues to be less than a three month supply. For reference, a more stabilized market tends to have close to a six month supply.

Nashville certainly isn’t the only market with low inventory, though, as a dwindling housing supply seems to be a national trend that is affecting most major markets. According to reports, inventory levels were down

Cottage Homes in the Nashville AreaNashville is one of those cities where home buyers can find just about anything they could want when it comes to a new place to live, but among some of the more popular options right now happen to be smaller cottage style homes that seem to be popping up all over the Nashville real estate market.

First time home buyers specifically wanting a detached residence love what a smaller, cottage-style home brings to the table, both from a lifestyle and budget standpoint.

The market is so hot lately that it's not usually a chore to sell a Nashville home; especially if it's a short drive to downtown or a condo close to local universities. But no matter what area of town a seller lives in, or how nice the home, many sellers can forget to highlight a few things which buyers love while focusing on renovated kitchens or proximity to schools.

Storage Space

It might seem silly, but mention all your extra storage space if you have it! Especially if it's an otherwise small home or condo. Many of the home buyers in Nashville these days are first time home buyers, heading from apartments to their first real place. And many local Nashville apartments lack a lot of storage space, which can produce a lot of unfortunate clutter.

Surprised to find your neighbor's house is worth a lot more than yours? Or maybe you're considering selling your Nashville home? Don't worry: home prices can fluctuate quite a lot over time. Think of them a little bit like airplane tickets: they fluctuate over time, some seasons they can sell for more or less than others, and the more people who are wanting to fly to a specific destination, the higher the prices to get there are. Your home is little different: the more people who are wanting to move into a neighborhood, the higher its home prices tend to raise. And just because you paid $300,000 for your home back in '95 doesn't mean that's what it's worth now!

So if you're considering renovations, selling, or just want to know why your home has

Visitors often treat open houses like casual walk-throughs, commenting on paint colors and fixtures.

And when the Nashville real estate market is hot, open houses can be the only times to ask these individuals questions about the home: some homes will receive accepted bids even at the open house! So in order to get the most out of an open house experience, keep these questions in mind. 

How Many Offers Are On The Home?

Back in December, some members of the House of Representatives brought a bill to the floor which might help first time homeowners secure a mortgage... even if they have a terrible credit score! It's not a law yet... but it might become one! Without going into all the legislative details, what it will effectively do is allow mortgage companies and government-backed lending institutions to consider credit score variations other than the FICO model. 

The argument is that the FICO model is unfair to many groups of people, including low-income families, first-time home buyers, and minorities, in part because it relies upon data now two decades old. So, it would open up the floor for companies to use other models to approve home buyers, and to also make
