January 2009 is now officially over. By about mid February we should have the sales figures for January. The reason for the delay is to allow everyone to get their closings turned in and closed out in our MLS.
But for now the Knox County Registrar of Deeds publishes a list of real estate transfers each week in the local newspaper; a very popular feature with most of my fellow Realtors.
Here's the past weeks figures in graph form.
Conspicuously absent during this past week were any recorded transfers over $500,000. I suppose this is a further testamonial to the softness that has hit our market as well as many others all over the country.
However if you're in the market for a new home or moving to the greater Knoxville area it's a great time to buy.
I've been fortunate enough to represent several buyers this just past January and I gotta tell you, those folks got some great buys on both new and resale homes.
Here are some examples of what your money can buy today in Knoxville.
This beautiful home in Farragut sold recently for $320,000.
In the very pleasant north Knoxville neighborhood of Fountain City this spanking new home sold for $239,900
Over in Hardin Valley, located between west Knoxville & Oak Ridge, this one sold for just $178,500
Just a few example of the wonderful homes your dollar will buy today in the Greater Knoxville, Tennessee area.
