The great thing about these numbers is that it reflects purely sold property in all of Cherokee County with monetary consideration. In other words, Joe giving his son George a piece of land or even inheriting it doesn’t reflect here. There are three lines – improved land parcels (generally houses or homes, even some commercial buildings), unimproved parcels (vacant land and lot tracts), and the total. The great thing about this chart is it reflects properties transfered over our local Realtor Board – the Mountain Lakes Board of Realtors – and over person to person transactions.
Its easy to see the market has remained flat and stable over the past several months. The stability has been a blessing – buyers are finding more choices than they’ve had in the past and sellers can rely on market that is not “all over the place.”

I would like for you know how pleased I am with my agent, John Poltrock. I would highly recommend John to my family and friends. I live in Florida and John made it simple to purchase property in Murphy, North Carolina. I told him exactly what I wanted and in one day I found the exact property I was looking for. John did a great job. He made himself available to me whenever I called. My mother will use John as her agent as she is getting ready to purchase property in Murphy also. I have recommended John to all my friends who have talked about moving to the Murphy area.
I have heard speculation and confirmed it with several people close to the source (wow – I sound like a reporter!) that there is good reason it is so low. The Hiwassee Dam itself is very unique in the fact that it is capable of reversing the flow of the lake itself and pumping water back into the lake. Apparently, it drains water during the day to produce power. Then at night, it reverses the flow and pumps water back into the lake. As I found out, the dam’s mechanism that reverses the flow is in fact broken! According to sources, It’s due to be repaired sometime in October. It makes it difficult because lake front property doesn’t look the same as usual!
This picture was taken on one of the bridges on Joe Brown Highway. Many of the boat docks are totally unusable and marinas are closed. To add insult to injury, the TVA is also using the water from the Hiwassee to keep the Tennessee River flow up for transportation purposes.
On a positive note, hope for rain and next year will be better! Find the Normal rainfall in Murphy NC. Now’s a great time to be looking at lake property because some sellers might be anxious to move…. hmmm… food for thought!

Here’s some hard numbers. The below chart represents four month trailing data for the Cherokee County Housing Market. It does not represent land. Trailing data is great because it averages out the most recent transactions to give you the most stable data. If you’re not sure what some of the abbreviations are below, see the key at the bottom of this article.
Current Market Data Powered by the Poltrock Team at REMAX of Murphy North Carolina
|Price Range||Transactions/mo.||DOM Short||DOM Average||DOM Long||L/S Ratio|
Now here’s something quite interesting. Here’s the data for the past month only:
|Transactions/mo.||DOM Short||DOM Average||DOM Long||L/S Ratio|
The variance in the 4 month trailing versus the 1 month numbers indicate we’re seeing more property move for the last month. That’s obvious. What is interesting is the DOM is much higher indicating we’re going to see that continue to get longer. Also, the List to sell ratio is over a full point lower. That generally shows me that more buyers are “fishing” for good deals (why transactions are up) and in some cases are getting it (which is why the L/S ratio is lower).
Either way, numbers are power! Want to know how this applies to your property or one that you are considering buying? Call us or email and we would be happy to provide you a free consultation to translate all this information to your situation. Happy buying and selling!
There’s a rock climbing wall in the back. The rock wall is really made of plastic. You have to do it with a rope. When you climb to the top, you can push a button that rings a bell. It’s loud! You might want to cover your ears when you push it.
In the front, there is a big, huge play place where you can shoot balls, throw them, and more! There’s a big slide you should try out. You can only ride down back, straight, or on your bottom. It’s fun because you can hit a bump and bounce the whole way down!
There is a pizza place where you can get any kind of pizza. It is in the back. You might see it if you go there.
There are lots of video games! My favorite is the roll ball. If you get a 1,000 points, you get a bunch of tickets! There’s even a Putt-Putt game. You can play different holes. On the second to last one, it will go right down to the check point.
If you go there, you will see the other games. I’m sure you’ll find them amazing too! I hope you have a fine time!
