Let’s recap Smyrna short sales for February 2015 and it’s impact on the current market. It’s important to understand the influence that short sales have on today’s market and to keep an eye on the market. The Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act was extended at the last minute for 2014. This really shouldn’t have any impact on short sales and foreclosures, but could create a political firestorm as forgiven debt will be taxable again in 2015. In February, Smyrna short sales activity was: 3 active homes 6 pending homes 0 closed homes 5 active condos and townhomes 8 pending condos and townhomes 0 closed condos and townhomes If you’re in the market for a Smyrna short sale, whether a single family home, condo or townhome, we’re here to help.

It is always a good time to award the winners and we’re not just talking about the Grammy’s, Oscars or Golden Globes. We’re talking about the Top Selling Smyrna Vinings Neighborhoods in 2014. It’s always interesting to see which neighborhoods buyers were attracted to during their Smyrna Vinings home search. So without further adieu, let’s unveil the winners.

The Smyrna Vinings condo and townhome market finished 2014 on a strong note. Much like the Smyrna Vinings single family home market, Smyrna Vinings condo and townhome sales continue to be spurred by low interest rates. Sales throughout 2014 were higher than the previous heights of 2007, which is a huge shift and double the sales from just a couple years ago. As you can see, we’ve been tracking the market for quite some time. We sell a lot of Smyrna Vinings homes, condos and townhomes and one of the major reasons is that we specialize in the area, we know the inventory of homes for sale and understand the trends, statistics and all the local pertinent information necessary for you to make an informed decision. The green bar is 2007 and we were selling a lot of condos and townhomes back t...
