Knoxville real estate market remains hot as demand is high and supply is at an all-time low. The Knoxville Area Realtors Association collects monthly data to keep track of what is happening in the Knoxville area market. This is what May 2021 looked like.
What you need to know:
- Home sales (seasonally adjusted) were down 14.5% from the previous month. KAAR reports month-to-month changes and home sales patterns using a seasonally adjusted annual rate that takes into account typical seasonal fluctuations in the data and is expressed as an annual sum. Comparing monthly housing market data using this method provides a more accurate picture of home sales.
- The asking price is the starting point. More than 68% of homes sold in May were sold for listing prices or higher.
- Almost 10% of homes sold in May went at least $ 25,000 over the asking price.
