“January’s numbers reflect recent trendlines in Tennessee as the market remains filled both with challenges and with opportunities,” said Kathy Tucker of Chattanooga, 2019 President of Tennessee REALTORS®. “Inventory has remained tight in many parts of the state as prices have continued to rise. It’s wise for Tennesseans to keep these factors in mind as they embark on the process of buying or selling a home.”
