Nashville affordable new construction homes for sale While incredible job growth and a continuous spike in population have largely contributed to Nashville’s red hot real estate market in recent months, the dwindling supply of housing continues to drive home prices up and is even pushing some would-be buyers out of the market, especially if you’re looking for new construction.

Home Closings in Nashville in April 2017It’s certainly no secret that that Nashville housing market has been very active over the past couple years, but in somewhat of a surprising twist, activity slowed a little in April, even as closings still increased 1.3% compared to April of 2016. 

For much of the last year or so, available inventory has continued to be an issue facing the Nashville real estate market, which is still driving home prices up and keeping some would-be buyers from being active. And even as the housing supply continues to increase throughout much of the Middle Tennessee region, keeping up with demand is still proving to be a struggle. 

Just recently, the Greater Nashville REALTORS® released a breakdown of sales stats for the month of April, which is featured below, along

With just 15 townhouse residences available, opportunities are limited, however, which will have to be something potential buyers keep in mind, especially during the busy spring season. 

Townhomes at The Jenkins feature floor plans that range in size from 1,500 to 3,000 square feet, and prices are set between $500,000 and $1 million for the most part.
