Local Realty Sales Up 13.5 Percent Over Previous Month

by The Chattanoogan.com
Local Realty Sales Up 13.5 Percent Over Previous Month
posted September 21, 2011

The local real estate market continues to defy the odds, and the downward trend throughout the rest of the U.S., according to data released by the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) of the Greater Chattanooga Association of Realtors.

In August, Southeast Tennessee and the Northwest Georgia area reported the sale of 595 residential units, a 13.5 percent increase compared to the previous month’s sales, and an eye-opening 24 percent advance from one year ago.

Local Realtors Association President Jennifer Grayson said that customers are reacting to the market’s affordability, and the high quality of options available to buyers. “Admittedly, we’ve seen a slight uptick in foreclosures this month, which to some degree, helped to increase sales.” She added, “However, this was accompanied by a significant decrease in our inventory, down from 10.9 months in July, to 9.4 months in August, which we feel is getting much closer to the normal levels we expect to see over the long run.”

Ms. Grayson also noted that another sign of good market health is to be found in the value of all transactions. “Our members sold over $92 million in local area property last month, which is a testament both to our region’s continued healthy outlook and the dedicated hard work of our members. We always expect August to be a good month, but this was our best since 2007.”

Chattanooga Area MLS President Dan Griess said, “I believe as well, that our decrease in the median price during August also contributed to the higher sales. The median is a statistic that we follow closely because it is a great barometer of the current total value of the market. However, I think the month-over-month decrease was enough to spur sales but not significant enough to generate any alarm about the fundamental soundness of our market’s overall value.”

“Days on the market were up by only a week during August. I agree with Jennifer that we’re seeing positive indicators on where we’re trending, and that our realtors are getting the job done for sellers and buyers. Not only was this the top month of 2011, but it’s also the best since June of last year. I’m optimistic about where we’re heading now, and looking for positive things moving into 2012.”

Fall Fixes for the Home

by September 7, 2011 -- Realty Times Feature Article

FALL FIXES FOR THE HOME - September 7, 2011 -- Realty Times Feature Article by Carla Hill

Fall is a welcome reprieve from the oppressive heat of Summer. It also offers homeowners all across the country a chance to ready their homes for cold weather, hard rains, and all that cold seasons have to offer.

As the seasons change, once again it's time to perform some home maintenance. Here are 10 yearly tasks that will help keep your household in working order when the temperatures drop.

1. Clean Gutters: Do so frequently. Clogged gutters can result in standing water and roof damage. Plus, if you clean them frequently, you're less likely to have to deal with decomposing leaves.

2. Mow and trim: It seems counter intuitive, but Fall is a wonderful time to both fertilize and reseed your lawn. A maintained lawn improves a home's value and saleability. Use this time to trim shrubs and grass one last time so that your yard stands out, even in a dormant season.

3. Prune trees: With Winter comes ice. With ice comes broken limbs. Take advantage of nice weather and cut back or remove precarious limbs. It only takes one heavy snow or ice to weigh down a limb and damage property.

4. Powerwash: Driveways, sidewalks, decks, and patios can get quite grimy during the summer months. Invest in a powerwasher and you'll be surprised how clean you can get them!

5. Outdoor Living: Some furniture is made to be stored during rainy or snowy seasons. Clear a place in your garage or shed for the items. Consider covering them with a tarp and storing cushion in vacuum seal bags.

6. Heating Systems: Check furnaces and change filters. Not only will it boost efficiency, but it will also save you money in the process.

7. Check for Leaks: Recaulk around windows and doors to help prevent heat from escaping.

8. Fireplace: You don't want a chimney fire. Be sure to have your chimney swept or cleaned each year.

10. Piping: Check pipes for insulation to prevent freezing and bursting.

Every season holds different responsibilities for a homeowner. Be sure to stay on top of tasks each season to maintain your home's value!
