Wish that I was playing an April Fools Day joke when I report these numbers but it just isn’t so. As I was afraid it might, the harsher than normal winter weather did take its toll on March closings, as least that’s what I hope is behind the soft numbers being reported by Gatlinburg area real estate firms. Our Smoky Mountain real estate market failed for the second month in a row to reach the strong level of sales from a year ago. Of course, there will be many more sales reported over the next few days but I doubt that we will see that many additions. Here is the preliminary table:
This Gatlinburg real estate broker’s guess is that we will end up close to even with March 2014’s total but that wasn’t a particularly strong month itself. Here’s to April, and no more snow or ice until next winter!
