2010 Home Sales Results Middle Tennessee

2010 SALES FIGURES Final numbers for 2010 show there were 20,250 homes sold in our region, according to figures provided by the Greater Nashville Association of REALTORS. Compared to the prior year, the final figures are down 4.4 percent. There were 21,183 closings in 2009. It is helpful to note that the number of closings in December of 2010 actually exceeds the number in December of 2008, which was not distorted by the tax credit-driven activity. It is also good to see the residential median price remain stable and even show an increase.

2011 Color for the next year…….

Last year, turquoise brightened up home interiors across the country, but now a new color has stepped into the spotlight for 2011.

Pantone recently announced honeysuckle — a reddish pink hue — as this year’s “in” color.

“Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues,” Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, said in announcing the color choice. “The intensity of this festive reddish pink allures and engages. … Honeysuckle may also bring a wave of nostalgia for its associated delicious scent reminiscent of the carefree days of spring and summer.”

How to incorporate it: Liven up an interior space with honeysuckle patterned pillows, bedspreads, or tabletop accessories, Pantone suggests. Or, for an even bolder statement, paint an accent wall in honeysuckle for a burst of energy in the kitchen, hallway, or family room, Pantone says.

Admittedly, this year’s more feminine color choice may be a little more challenging to weave into interiors when staging properties for sale. But for you staging masters out there, if you’ve used honeysuckle-like colors in your properties, we want to see how you did it! Send your photos to and we’ll feature them at Styled, Staged & Sold.

Happy New Year!

Is there anything from 2010 that you would want to “Do Over”?


Have you ever heard of a “do-over”? One definition is “the chance to do something again from the beginning, and do it better this time.” I came across these “do-over” thoughts from writer/humorist Erma Bombeck and they really got me thinking. She wrote,


 If I had my life to do over, I would…


  • Spend more time listening – and less talking.
  • Spend more time on loved ones – and less on work.
  • Spend more time living in my living space – and less cleaning it.
  • Spend more time learning from the older people in my life – and less trying to convince them I already know it all.
  • Spend more time with the windows rolled down – and less worrying about mussing my hair.
  • Spend more time using the stuff I have – and less time collecting more.
  • Spend more time playing – and less planning.
  • Spend more time sharing the burdens of those I love – and less trying to get them to share mine.
  • Spend more time participating in life – and less watching television.
  • Spend more time taking care of myself when I’m ill – and less trying to convince myself that the world can’t get along without me for even a day.
  • Spend more time having fun – and less being practical.
  • Spend more time finding joy in each moment – and less wishing time would pass quickly.
  • Spend more time on love and forgiveness – and less on anger and insults.


Erma Bombeck also said, “Given another shot at life, I would seize every minute…look at it and really see it…live it…and never give it back.”


Here is to a Great 2011

2010 In Review



2010 was a great year for many of our friends and clients that took advantage of purchasing Super Buys in real estate from auctions & foreclosures to short sales. It was also a great year for buyers moving up in the market as they were able to purchase much more house with interest rates at incredible lows. It was a tremendous year for investors purchasing rentals, duplexes, triplexes and condos. We also were able to help many downsizers move into new homes, new condos, new construction and obtain reverse mortgages. People ask “How is the Market?” Check these great homes that we were able to work with this past year that took advantage of Super Buy market conditions with low interest rates and aggressive pricing in 2010.
