January 2021 Sumner County Market Report

Ready to maximize the equity in your Sumner County home and move up to your dream home, but not sure where to begin?


If you’re like most people, this is one of your largest financial assets, so you want to make sure that you’re getting the highest possible price when it’s time to sell.


This requires an understanding of our local market and where your home fits into the landscape. As you consider making a change, here are the top things you should know:


Demand for our area remains high, and it’s having a positive effect on prices.


Experts forecast an optimistic year for the housing market. Interest rates are projected to remain at or near 3% in 2021, fueling stronger buyer activity.  Although we are off to a slow start, real estate economist Lawrence Yun says we should start to see the economy itself start to bounce back in the 2nd or third quarter.


In order to capitalize on this growth, homeowners should prioritize strategic pricing and marketing from the very beginning. Improper pricing or lackluster marketing can cost both time and money.


Despite rising prices, homes continue to move fast.


January usually shows an increase in new listings. Home owners that wait will be up against more competition as we head into spring.  This time last year 100 new listings had already hit the market in Sumner Co. With a little over 400 homes available for sale that brings our 1 month of inventory to a record low.


The last thing you want is for your listing to linger on the market for too long due to under-preparation or mispricing. Even in a strong sellers’ market, having a proven approach is critical to achieving the results you deserve in a timely manner.


Buyers are searching now, and we expect competition to stick around. 


Nashville ranked #8 amongst the top Metro cities that buyers are relocating to and calling home.  With more relocation buyers moving into the area buyers are ready to make above asking price offers on the right home, making this an excellent time for new or existing homes to hit the market. With my strategic listing preparation and marketing plan, my clients get the highest possible price in the fewest days on market.


As a homeowner, what does this mean for you?


If you’re thinking about selling your home in the next 12 months, now is the time to get a plan in place.


I understand the financial and logistical complexity of this move. I myself sold a home with twin toddlers, so I know firsthand how important it is to have a trusted partner to help manage the details while you stay focused on keeping your daily life on the rails.


That’s why I’ve made it my mission to provide my clients with the knowledge and tools needed to prepare themselves for this transition.


And thanks to a proven process that works, I’ve had the pleasure of helping 100s of clients get the results they deserve so that they can move on to their next chapter with ease.
