July 2020

Market Update

2020 has so far proven to be one for the history books. We’ve had tornadoes, pandemic, murder hornets, protests, and more. While I don’t believe in a “national housing market”, there is no doubt that national issues affect our local market. In uncertain times, I am constantly asked how the market is. People that own homes or want to in the near future care about this as it affects their future and stability. Who knows what the rest of 2020 will bring, but just know that we’re all in this together. For now, let’s discuss updates from the month of July.

As you can see, we’ve seen a bit of decline in the number of closed transactions in Rutherford County that started in April, and declined even further in May and June. All of this can likely be attributed to COVID. I believe we will see the line tick up very gradually over the next few months, and that there is some pent up demand that will move forward as things settle down.
