More Statistics

Today we want to share some more visual aid statistics with you.  We are continuing with year to year comparisons covering 2006-2011.  These graphs are to show the change in average sale price from year to year.

As Real Estate Agents The Derosia Team likes statistics.  In particular, we like to compare the market from year to year.  We would like to share some comparisons for 2006-2011 to show you how the market has changed.

We focused on each individual area of Sevier County and the Volume Sold per area.  Here are a couple visual aids to show the change in the Smoky Mountains.

This is the same information just a different representation of the data!
We also compared the total volume sold for Sevier County as a whole through 2006-2011.  















So as the economy suggest the market has dropped since 2006 & 2007.  However on a positive note the market for 2008-2011 has been somewhat consistent in the Smoky Mountains with a slow rise in volume.

I might be happy about the warm winter but it does affect the skiers. Gatlinburg is probably one of the most southern states you can go and still ski but sometimes  old man winter just will not cooperate.

Beginning again!

Well, it has been a while since we have blogged. We are not a great bloggers and we break all the rules about consistency and content. Our goal is too get better at both of these issues.

To start this first blog back we will make it personal. We have been blessed 6 weeks ago to welcome a new grandchild into the family. Makenzie Belle is Phillip and Kim's first child and she is such a doll. She is not spoiled at all! Ha! Ha! She joins our 2 other grandchildren Kayla 9 and Hannah 5.

Aren't grandchildren great? You can love them, play with them, feed them junk, spoil them and then at the end of the day when they are tired, they go back to their parents! The old adage "If I had known how fun grandkids would have been I would have had them first."

We look forward to the rest of the year with our family and friends.  Please continue to follow us as we try to reach are goals of becoming better bloggers.  We look forward to bringing you updates on the Smoky Mountain Real Es…
