“The real estate market in Tennessee remains active and vibrant,” said Kathy Tucker, 2019 President of Tennessee REALTORS®. “While sales have slowed and prices have risen, inventory continues to be tight but the decline in available homes has slowed in recent months. Whether or not the market is tight, it’s always a good time to seek out expertise when looking to buy or sell a home.”
