Lack of Inventory Continues to Drive Home Prices Up


There were 2,649 home closings reported for the month of January, according to figures provided by Greater Nashville REALTORS®. This figure is down three percent from the 2,745 closings reported for the same period last year.

“Home sales declined in 2021 due to supply chain problems, difficulty finding land and extended delays with planning and codes,” said Steve Jolly, Greater Nashville Realtors president. “This lack of housing inventory will continue to be a problem in 2022.”

“With record levels of demand and a limited number of homes for sale, more than ever buyers and sellers need to rely on a Realtor to help them find their way home,” Jolly added.
