NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — For the first time, Nashville is welcoming the Grand Prix, which is one of several events this summer growing Nashville’s economy.  

“An international event like the Grand Prix here in Nashville, it projects globally, it attracts people globally and that hospitality community is really important,” Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce CEO Ralph Schulz said. “A lot of visitors come here, pay taxes, and help fuel and fund services and growth in Nashville.” 

As the U.S. economy bounces back after the deep dive it took with pandemic restrictions, a new report from Stessa ranked Nashville as having the most economic growth in the U.S.

44 Sherman Street, Island Falls, Maine 04747

c.1893. 2560 square feet. 6 bedrooms 1.5 baths on 0.9 acre. $89,900! Thanks to Carol for sending this one in!

This 5-6-bedroom 1.5 bath Queen Anne Victorian home in the heart of Island Falls Maine is just waiting to be restored to its former glory. Built in 1893 by George Kelley, a Timber Baron/lumberman in the late 1800s and early 1900s, the home sits on a well-manicured 0.9+/- acre lot in the middle of Island Falls. The home has a large wrap around front porch as well as a smaller side porch. The kitchen still contains what are believed to be the original cupboards. The laundry area is in the kitchen. From the kitchen you can access the cold storage room and barn and the butler's pantry as well as the rest of the home. The stained-glass windows and hardwood floors (including a true parquet floor in the music room) are in relatively good condition. The ornate woodwork and carvings throughout the home along with the pocket doors between the living room and music room testify to the workmanship of its builders and is most noticeable in the living room fireplace mantle. The final downstairs room was most likely the ladies' day room and is now a half bath/bedroom but would make a nice office space or a second full bath.

New York (CNN Business)Home prices are climbing at the fastest pace in history, eclipsing even the boom in the days leading up to the Great Recession. Bidding wars have become common, many are forced to pay all cash and some bids are coming in $1 million over asking.

It's all sparking fears that the United States is in the middle of another housing bubble that will end in a terrible crash. Industry executives and economists agree this explosion in home values is unsustainable, as home prices can't go up 20% year-over-year forever.

Yet today's housing market is very different from the mid-2000s bubble that wrecked the economy. 

Unlike then, there is currently a massive shortage of homes and home builders are being very cautious about adding new supply.

Home sales inched slightly higher in June as the inventory of available homes to buy increased, but home prices still remained on a tear, according to a report from the National Association of Realtors. 

Consistently low inventory has pushed prices higher over the past year. The median price for an existing home in June hit an all-time high of $363,300, up 23% over last year. That marks 112 straight months of year-over-year gains.

MORE FROM FINANCIAL EMPOWERMENT 

How much house can I afford?

How does inflation affect my standard of living?

How much do I need to save for retirement?

 

 

The sales of existing homes -- which include single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops -- rose 1.4% from May to June, breaking four consecutive months of declines. Home sales were up 23% from a year ago -- although that comparison is skewed because some regions of the US were still shut down in June of last year due to the pandemic.

"Supply has modestly improved in recent months due to more housing starts and existing homeowners listing their homes, all of which has resulted in an uptick in sales," said Lawrence Yun, NAR's chief economist. "Home sales continue to run at a pace above the rate seen before the pandemic."

At the end of June there were 1.25 million homes for sale, up 3.3% from May's inventory and down 18.8% from one year ago. At the current sales pace, that equates to a 2.6-month supply. A balanced market between homebuyers and sellers generally needs a 6-month supply.

"At a broad level, home prices are in no danger of a decline due to tight inventory conditions, but I do expect prices to appreciate at a slower pace by the end of the year," Yun said. "Ideally, the costs for a home would rise roughly in line with income growth, which is likely to happen in 2022 as more listings and new construction become available."

“Why” Wednesday: Ministry

Coincidentally, I had a conversation with my husband this morning about the jobs he’s turned down over the years. Of all the reasons we chatted about, I believe that at the core, the main reason is those opportunities lacked the chance for him to “be the church.”

Thank you Nashville Real Producers for allowing me to share my story on how I use real estate as a vehicle for my ministry!

Runaway market slows, still ahead of record 2020 pace

Middle Tennessee real estate unit sales increased 24% in May compared to May 2020, Greater Nashville Realtors figures show. With inventory as low as it is, there are those who might wonder how these sales could occur.

While the 4,063 closed sales are more than the 3,267 sales in May 2020, they lag slightly behind April’s 4,119 sales. With seasonality built into the real estate data, sales actually dropped from April to May.

Sales classified as pending were lower in May (3,788) compared to April (3,837). In order for June to eclipse the previous June, some 4,191 sales must occur. With 3,778 pending sales, the number is likely to surpass June 2020 based on anecdotal numbers from leading Realtors.

One thing perplexing members of that focus group is there are considerably fewer showings than in previous months. Showings normally slow toward the end of May since there are graduations to attend. And this year had twice that amount at some institutions that staged a ceremony for those who would have flipped the tassel in 2020 but were denied by the pandemic.

Summer weddings also eat into sales numbers, especially with those weddings delayed from last year taking place this year.

And amid all those delays, there were more home sales in the area than in any previous year. Clearly, some things can wait and some can’t.

Now with masks removed, crowds gathering and real estate brokers and their clients riding in the same cars, there could be a slight decrease. Of course, that is based on the cannibalism of the market, as all of the properties are being devoured once they show themselves.

New construction has instituted new policies as builders rarely price homes before completion for two reasons: There is wide fluctuation in the cost of materials and the value of their product is increasing astronomically.

This phenomenon is driving buyers crazy. They see houses they would like to buy and have the wherewithal to purchase the home, but the sellers will not give them a price.

Another new wrinkle rearing its ugly head has buyers being forced to submit offers with no appraisal or financing contingencies. Most of these buyers have witnessed firsthand the strength of the market, having lost a home or two along the road to the house they are finally able to get under contract.
