Section A - Page 2 www.TNLedger.com FEBRUARY 1 – 7, 2019 Mergers, economy, technology sow uncertainty By Kathy Carlson L ast year had something for everyone in Nashville’s residential real estate scene. There was a year-end flurry of sales and mergers among local firms, a reshuffling of real estate agents from one firm to another, near- record home sales volumes, continuing price appreciation and the arrival of new, tech-heavy national real estate businesses. Local observers see an unusually rapid change in ownership of real estate firms but consider the movement of agents to new firms as a usual end-of-year occurrence. Technology continues to change residential real estate as time- pressed buyers and sellers embrace it, and real estate firms try to figure out how to use it to their benefit. Residential real estate firms change hands for reasons similar to those of other businesses. Steve Condurelis of Keller Williams says many residential real estate firms are small, family-owned operations with a finite life. If no one in the family wants to continue in the business, owners Photo by Michelle Morrow |The Ledger will want to sell. Home for sale by Opendoor at 3156 Hidden Creek Drive, Antioch.
