Then, in the fall of 2008, the real estate bubble burst nationwide and cabin prices here in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee adjusted downwards 30% to 40% allowing me to again provide buyers with profitable options for Second Home/ Investment Cabins and Chalets.

A great percentage of our visitors return each year for their major vacation as well as for weekend getaways and rental cabins book year round here in the Smokies. As was demonstrated in 2010 and 2011, even in a slow uncertain economy, vacations are important to people the number of cabin renting visitors coming to the Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg showed no major decrease.

If you are thinking about owning a cabin in the Smoky Mountains that you will use several times a year, why not allow other lovers of the Smokies pay for it when you’re not there!

Without a doubt, it is currently a buyer’s market for investment cabins here in the Smoky Mountains. In response to market conditions, I have chosen to act as a Buyers’ Agent, cherry picking the available properties for people who have the interest and ability to take advantage of the opportunities presented by current economic circumstances. My compensation comes from the Buyers’ Agent commission built into the sales price.

4080588605_73b9527e50_zBy early 2013, the Cabin and Chalet market had not only stabilized but showed legitimate recovery and we are still in an enticing buyers’ market with profitable opportunities for the astute buyer. However, with a sales market that looked as though it would never end, from 2000 to 2008, developers significantly over built cabins in frequently less than desirable locations and/or in minimally appealing styles. Many such cabins are currently on the market. While to the untrained eye, these may appear to be great opportunities, such cabins were poor investment choices when built and remain so even at seemingly attractive prices.
