Home sales in the Nashville area finished the year more than 7 ½ percent higher than 2013. The numbers released by the Greater Nashville Association of Realtors show a strong finish to the year with 16 percent more homes sold in December and in the fourth quarter overall. But not all areas of Middle Tennessee had a banner year.
Robertson County’s home sales were down slightly and Cheatham County was basically flat.
“It’s very frustrating,” said Laura Hunter of Ashland City who has a house on the market.
Hunter says she’s given up on using a realtor to sell her house and is now trying on her own. She says the realtor’s fee was adding too much to the selling price.
“I’ve had a few people call but nobody’s wanted to look at it. They just wanted to hear about it. But then I never hear from them again,” said Hunter.
Overall, 33,000 homes were sold in the Nashville area last year, the most since 2007, but still far short of 40,000 closings in 2006.
