Don't freak out, Predators fans, but Shea Weber sold his Hillsboro Village condominium Tuesday.
No reason to panic, as he still owns a home in Green Hills, according to property records.
Weber bought the condo in The Enclave back in his first full season in Nashville in 2006. He bought a new home three years later, but held on to the condo.
Weber, like so many other folks selling in this market, took a bit of a bath on his condo. He paid $383,900 for it five years ago and has sold it for $320,000. But it's doubtful there will be any tears shed: Remember that the Preds' captain just scored a franchise-record $7.5 million contract from a league arbitrator.
In their latest Tennessee Housing Market Brief, the researchers at MTSU's Business & Economic Research Center show that total residential permits issued in the second quarter fell 23 percent from a year ago, which was much worse than the South and the United States as a whole. The state's trend line has been about as flat as a pancake for a while now.

Were you to judge the current health of housing in the nation's largest cities by how home prices have held up in the past year, you would end up with Music City at the top of your list. The Wall Street Journal has very nicely formatted data from Zillow.com that shows Nashville's homes lost just 2 percent of their value in the year ended June 30. And if you want to click around and compare us to Atlanta and Charlotte, we come out looking pretty good on a lot of fronts. One note of caution: We have hardly whittled down our high inventory of homes, which would help explain why prices haven't slid as much as elsewhere.
