As many of you know, I was out of state last week attending a business conference in Fort Worth, Texas. Now that I’m back at work, it’s time to report the tally for January’s residential sales in our Gatlinburg area real estate market. During last month, local real estate agents combined for the sale of 109 homes, condos, and mobile homes. As usual, this tally does not include land or commercial sales nor are any lease type transactions included in this total.
The 109 transactions for January 2012 is slightly ahead of the 106 sales recorded last year and we probably will see a few more posted as everyone get’s January’s business finalized. Although the 109 sales is just ahead of last year’s number, it is a positive comparison and tends to add to the argument that our market is improving, albeit slowly.
