The Warranty Deeds had a combined value of $142.72 million. There was a total of 31 property transfers that hit the one-million-dollar mark, 23 of those being residential and 8 being commercial.

The highest valued property transfer of the week was $6.2 million. CJ Riverland GP sold two undeveloped properties on either side of the Riverwalk condos on Blount Avenue to VK Riverfront Owner LLC.

The retail building at 11145 Turkey Drive, home to Hobby Town and other businesses, was also on the list of million-dollar properties. A private party sold to Wilson Properties GP for $3.9 million.

Also, on the list is the property at the corner of Kingston Pike and Gallaher View Rd. Russell Government Group LLC sold 8401 Kingston Pk, currently the VA Dental Clinic, to TNRE 8 LLC for $3.7 million.

Tidal Wave, a new carwash, is coming to Halls.

A new carwash will be opening soon on Norris Freeway. SHJ Development LLC has sold to Tidal Wave Auto Wash at 7538 Norris Freeway to NNN REIT INC for $3.41 million. I believe it’s opening next week.

Also in North Knoxville, Star Mountain Properties LLC et al has sold approx. 30 acres next to the Powell Library. The four parcels, currently accessed by a private drive on W. Emory Road, were purchased by Graham GP for $1.27 million.

Dunkin on Asheville Hwy

In East Knoxville, the Dunkin Donuts on Asheville Highway at Gov. John Sevier Hwy was sold to a new owner. Bluemont Property LLC sold the 6115 Asheville Highway property to Donuts Knoxville LLC for $1.98 million.

Another East Knoxville business was also on the list. APAC-Tennessee Inc. sold 13 acres at 1301 Spring Hill Dr, off Rutledge Pike, to Tennessee Auto Salvage and Recycling Inc for $1.2 million.

The last commercial transaction is at 7620 Chapman Highway, across from the new medical complex. Clark Crossing LLC sold the property to Nashville Motorcycle Collective LLC for $1.3 million.

Pay special attention to the chart below. In comparing the Warranty deed quantity vs, the value over the last four years is shocking! This year we have recorded 1,000 fewer sales than in 2021, yet the total value of those sales is $20 million more than four years ago. That is a 28% drop in the number of sales.
