“We saw a typical, seasonal pick-up in sales in March from last month as the warmer spring season began, even while total sales were down from a year ago, the median price rose, and inventory remained tight,” said Kathy Tucker of Chattanooga, 2019 President of Tennessee REALTORS®. “Tennessee homebuyers and sellers continue to face a vibrant but also challenging environment as they navigate one of the largest and most complex transactions that many will ever make.”
