GREATER NASHVILLE HOME SALES REMAIN ACTIVE AND HEALTHY
 
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Sept. 8, 2014) There were 3,226 home closings reported for the month of August, according to figures provided by the Greater Nashville Association of REALTORS®.  This figure represents a 4.6 percent increase over the 3,084 closings reported for the same period last year.  
 
  Year-to-date closings for the Greater Nashville area have increased 3.4 percent. There were 21,820 closings, compared with 21,094 closings reported through August of last year.
 
  "Home sales during August increased 4.6 percent over last year. And, the total number of closings during the month exceeded 3,000," said GNAR President Hagan Stone. "These numbers are a strong indication that the Greater Nashville market continues to demonstrate an important characteristic sustainability. With pending home sales up more than 3,000, we hope the market will remain active and healthy in the coming months. 
 
  "In addition, an important part of sales growth is job growth. Just last week, both AIG and Warby Parker made announcements that will add a total of 450 new jobs in the area. The continuation of excellent visibility and positive economic news for Greater Nashville will attract more people to the area and build confidence in the whole community."
