Fall is great in east Tennessee with all the trees showing their spectacular yellows, reds, and orange colors.

Before examining the latest Knoxville area real estate sales data I want to touch briefly on some misconceptions potential buyers may have about the local market.

Today's real estate market has changed and the media does a wonderful job of telling us how awful it is.  However, if you remove states like Nevada, California, and Florida, the current market is really not that bad.  In fact overall, we are experiencing the 3rd best real estate market in history...

I'm sure some of them make perfect sense to area residents but if happen to just be passing through.................watch it.   For instance, does the sign below mean you can't make a left turn unless there are no planes in sight?
