According to the Greater Nashville Realtors, 2017 was the best year on record for the Middle Tennessee housing market. The group says nearly 41,000 homes sold last year, about a 4 percent increase from 2016.

That broke the previous record, which had been set in 2006, before the Great Recession.

It has been a big year for home sales, and June was the biggest month so far. And the median home price set a record, topping $260,000 dollars.
