ICYMI, the housing market is hot right now. How hot? As of January 2021, there were more real estate agents than available homes in the U.S. 🤯

The market is equally tight locally, with Tennessee snagging the No. 1 spot in U-Haul’s 2020 ranking of states by migration growth. Read: A large influx of people are moving to Nooga, Knoxville, Nashville (hey, NASHtoday) and beyond.

Bryan Fryar, Mortgage Sales Manager at Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union, recently tackled this topic with Re/Max real estate agent Matt Mucciolo and Melissa Astin and Hannah Lancaster of Crabtree Farms in the latest installment of TVFCU’s Mortgage Seminar Series.
