As the supply of homes declined, the listing price climbed — especially in the trade-up and premium markets. The median listing price of trade-up homes rose 52 percent to $221,597 between early 2012 and 2017, while Trulia's data also showed the price of premium homes rose 44 percent to $437,967. Meanwhile, the median listing price for starter homes increased 36 percent to $108,783.
Supply is limited by strict zoning laws that make it difficult for supply to increase. Since Nashville is getting about 80 new residents/day, the only thing that can adjust is price.
