With US home loan rates remaining low, we expect demand to remain strong and we expect to see a lot of move-up homebuyers taking advantage of the opportunities that 2015 has to offer.

Let’s recap Smyrna short sales for December 2014 and it’s impact on the current market. It’s important to understand the influence that short sales have on today’s market and to keep an eye on the market. The Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act has been extended at the last minute for 2014. This really shouldn’t have any impact on short sales and foreclosures, but could create a political firestorm as forgiven debt will be taxable again in 2015. In December, Smyrna short sales activity was: 4 active homes 4 pending homes 2 closed homes 4 active condos and townhomes 7 pending condos and townhomes 2 closed condos and townhomes If you’re in the market for a Smyrna short sale, whether a single family home, condo or townhome, we’re here to help.

The holiday shopping season is heating up for Smyrna Vinings condo and townhome buyers. In October, the Smyrna Vinings townhome and condo market sales remained strong.
