January brings great start to ’17 By Sherry Witt After a strong ending to 2016, local real estate and lending markets wasted no time getting off to a fine start for the new year. For the Witt month ending Tuesday, Jan. 31, there were 732 property transfers recorded in Knox County – well short of the 1,020 filed in December, but comfortably ahead of last January’s total of 661. It was also the highest number of property sales recorded in January since 2007. The total value of land transferred during the month was $228.7 million, compared to December’s $244 million, and outpacing January 2016 by more than $70 million. It was the first time January sales had topped the $200 million mark since 2007, when about $250 mil-

lion worth of property was sold in the county. Lending markets also had reason for optimism as about $314 million was borrowed against real estate in January. In 2016, just $220 million was loaned. By far the largest real estate transfer in January involved multiple parcels in the Dowell Springs complex off Middlebrook Pike. The properties brought $70.6 million. On the lending side, the largest transaction recorded was a Deed of Trust in the amount of $30.18 million filed on real estate formerly known as the News Sentinel Building on State Street in downtown Knoxville. As markets continue their long recovery from the housing collapse of 2008, the data seem to indicate that both sales and lending are now reaching their 2007 levels. If this trend continues, it would certainly be good news for our local economy. KUB personnel with information about water quality and fire hydrant pressure; Gresham Middle School students will be recognized for outstanding achievement in citizenship and scholarship. ■■ AARP Driver Safety class, noon-4 p.m. Thursday, March 9, and 9-1 Friday, March 10, Halls Senior Center.

Game night to toast nonprofit workers There are fundraisers galore. But when it’s a “FUN”Raiser, well, it’s just plain fun! The Rotary Club of B e a r d e n ’s “Big Game Show Night: Celebrating Nonprofits” on Friday, Tom King March 3, will be a high-energy evening that honors those employees who toil at various nonprofits in Knoxville. Bearden Rotary vice president Wayne Underwood is heading up this 6:30 p.m. event at Buddy’s Banquet Hall. Companies and individuals are buying tables of 10 for $1,500 each and inviting employees of the nonprofit of their choice to come and enjoy this event. Already lined up is staff from Pond Gap Elementary, KARM (Knox Area Rescue Ministries), Mobile Meals, hospice workers and a group of firefighters who
worked hard at the recent wildfires in Gatlinburg and Sevier County. The games will be similar to those fun games on TV – “Most Popular Answer” is a “Family Feud”-type game. “The Answer Is” will be played and “Easy As 1-2-3” and “Face Off.” Gifts donated by local businesses will be raffled off. Underwood says 15 tables have already been sold and only a few more are available. Email him as soon as possible at wunderwood@ hopbailey.com ■■ Interact Club gets
