February residential sales as reported by the Great Smoky Mountain Association of Realtors were down sharply from February 2012’s tally of 144 units with only 119 homes sold reported so far for February 2013. Here is an updated chart to show the track of residential sales going all the way back to the record setting year of 2005:
While only a fraction of the Gatlinburg area’s approximately 400 agents sold a single home last month, some of us did manage to have a very good month. In fact, I personally sold 17 homes during February 2013 after a very respectable 13 sales in January. My goal for all of 2013 is a total of 200 homes sold, which would be a new personal best. This will require an average of nearly 17 sales her month so we aren’t very far off. My success is largely because of the wonderful support staff that I have at the office and in the field. Without these hardworking individuals it wouldn’t be possible to deliver this sort of performance for our clients. I have very much been blessed by God with great employees!!!
