MURFREESBORO , TN, USA, April 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — A recent Zillow survey says Nashville will be the country’s third-hottest housing market and the hottest on the East Coast. Nashville’s home prices are expected to increase about 5 to 6 percent on average, says Middle Tennessee Realtor Annette H Bratcher. Because the market is so seller-friendly, buyers will need to be savvy to find the houses they want, says Bratcher, an Accredited Buyers’ Representative.

Nationally, the top one and two markets are Austin and Phoenix. 

“The market in Nashville is hot because of people moving here from the West Coast and because it’s in a warm climate and still has affordable housing and relatively low taxes, ” Annette H Bratcher says. “Many out-of-state buyers are paying cash for the houses, sometimes sight unseen, causing the market to be a very competitive one for local buyers.”

Tips for Buyers
While a growth spurt has created many new neighborhoods in Nashville, demand for housing still exceeds supply. Local buyers should consider being preapproved rather than just prequalified when they make offers, Annette H Bratcher suggests. They also should be willing to waive contingencies and be ready for bidding wars for the house of their dreams. On the other hand, buyers should set an amount over which they know they can’t afford to bid to avoid overextending themselves, she says.
