You don’t have to keep a finger on the pulse of Middle Tennessee real estate trends to know that the market is moving up only. But the hottest zip codes may surprise you. Contrary to popular belief, Nashville’s Davidson County is not leading the pack.
A report from WKRN reveals the true leaders in terms of demand. The report looks at two key metrics to determine just how “hot” a particular area is:
- Monthly supply absorption rate: How many homes are currently on the market vs. the number of homes that have sold in the last three months.
- List-to-sell ratio: The price a buyer paid for the home vs. the listing price of the home. For example, if homes are listed at $500,000 and selling for $510,000, then the list-to-sell ratio is 102% (51/50 x 100).
