I hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving and a relaxing holiday weekend. Traditions were certainly altered, but people are wonderfully adaptable and creative.
The three-day work week of Nov. 23-26 yielded 307 loans totaling $66.57 million and 215 property transfers with a value of $80.71 million: not bad for 3 days!
Self-Storage centers were the stars of the week when it came to property transfers. ESS Storage Acquisitions Thirty-Six LLC purchased the Extra Space Storage property, located at 10630 Hardin Valley Rd, for $13.5 million from Pellissippi Storage LLC. ESS Storage Acquisitions Thirty-Seven LLC purchased another self-storage property in town. Middlebrook Storage LLC sold the property on the corner of Middlebrook Pike and Joe Hinton Rd, across from Pilot, for $13 million. The property locations are great as so many people are moving into these areas.
Another commercial property that caught my eye was the transfer between J &W Property LLC and Master Oz Willow LLC for 816 Willow Avenue. The 1.78-acre property sold for $1.3 million.
Glen Oaks Apartments, located on Hutton Road, also changed hands. Arrowdoor at Glen Oaks LLC sold both buildings to 4506 Hutton Rd LLC for $1.1 million. This property is in the Inskip community of Northwest Knox County
The lenders granting loans over $1 million last week were:
- Community Capital Corporation – $1.08 million
- Commercial Bank – $1.58 million
- Y-12 Federal Credit Union – $1.58 million
We join our friend, Knox County Property Assessor John Whitehead, in mourning the loss of his beloved wife, La Vera Whitehead. La Vera was a friend to all and was a former employee of the Register’s office. She was loved by many. We extend our deepest sympathies to the Whitehead family and the staff of the Assessor’s office.
