Real Estate News November 2009 Nashville and Williamson County

By

Hi Friends,

Wow, the holidays are in full swing.  Happy Hannukah to my Jewish friends.  Celebrating for a week - I love that about Jewish holidays - many of them are for a week long.  It is good to celebrate.  What are you celebrating?  Christmas -ok.  And I hope you have a Merry Christmas!  And the new year is good to celebrate - out with the old and in with the New Year.  And may it be a good one!  We need some good news after the challenges of this year.  But what I am really asking is, what are you celebrating in your own life?  Have you met your goals for this year?  Are you healthy?  Have your children crossed a milestone?  I realized one year that I whizzed by my goals with nary a notice and later realized what a missed opportunity that was.  Celebrate our wonderful holidays, they are worthy of it.  And find what else is worthy of celebration in your life.

How about the housing market?  Is it worth celebrating?  Well, yes it is.  We are finishing stronger than we did last year.  2009 saw housing prices drop in Middle TN, and the spring saw little movement in inventory.  However, November has seen a 62% increase in volume over last year.  Yes, the first time homebuyer credit may have had something to do with that, but that is what it is there for.   Prices are still down, but inventory is moving.  I am hopeful that the bottom has passed.  If you were hoping for the great deal - there is still time, but that might be changing.  Like I said, I am hopeful.  Our government is making changes everyday though - let's hope they work for our good.  We'll keep watching.
The numbers for Williamson County can be found here - at the Williamson County Assn. of Realtors.

There have already been 74 closing in Williamson County for December, and many of them in the  higher price ranges - maybe the Median price will go up for December.

Fun Coupon Tip.  There is a site called www.retailmenot.com where you can access coupon codes for ordering online merchandise.  This can be very helpful, especially now when you have to pay extra for shipping!

I hope you all have safe travels and fun times celebrating the holidays, family and friends! 
Call me if I can be of assistance or if you want information about your part of town. 

Sincerely,
Monica
