November News + Thanksgiving Catering + Markets

October Market Data for the Greater Nashville Area, (includes Davidson, Cheatham, Dickson, Maury, Robertson, Rutherford, Sumner, Williamson and Wilson counties) is HERE. I didn’t get a post out last month, so the September stats are HERE.  So what does it all mean? Still strong! An increase in inventory means we are finally seeing a more balanced market. Prices are still up over previous years, so property values are holding, and buyers have more choices.

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and there’s so much to do. Maybe this is the year to look into outsourcing a few items? Local restaurants have wonderful items available to pre-order for the holiday. A few worth mentioning:

Char: The new kid in town has some tasty looking options like chipotle sweet potato mash. Menu is here.

Dozen Bakery: Pies, cranberry sauce, rolls, galettes – even cubes of their sourdough to make your own dressing! Dozen Thanksgiving 2018 Menu

Henley: The whole shebang for 4-6 people. It includes a whole roasted heritage turkey (between 14-16 lbs), rolls, mashed potatoes, gravy, oyster and cornbread dressing, and a choice of pecan or pumpkin pie!

Henrietta Red: 2 pies and a sweet potato coffee cake I might just have to pick up for my peeps. Order here.

Juniper Green: The catering duo have a nice selection of options to brighten your table. Truffled corn pudding, or brussels sprouts with pomegranate and crispy shallots for instance? Check it out here.

If you burn the turkey or just want someone else to do the cooking and bring it to the table for you, these restaurants are all open for business on Thanksgiving Day.
