Last week was a big one for Nolensville real estate as 11 residential sales closed.
Continuing a 2016 trend, over 70% of those sales last week were new construction… a number that closely mirrors the overall 2016 new construction/existing homes split.
It’s an interesting stat to keep an eye on – and could possibly have greater implications. (See the next story down for more).

NAR Says Existing Home Sales Tumbled in February…
This story just came out today and is an important one to keep an eye on. Nationally, existing home sales dropped 7.1% in February. The northeast was hardest hit, where sales fell a whopping 17.1% – massive!
The south fared the best across regions, dropping only 1.8% in February… but there are trouble signs all around us, headlined by a lack of affordable inventory. Read more here.
