The only way to know when the market has turned is after it's started going up it so buying at the bottom of the market is possible...but only by accident.  There's no way for anyone to predict exactly when the bottom will hit. It seems that the market has picked up in Middle Tennessee within the...
This is a tool for the public to use to justify or check on home values for those who are using it for curiosity's sake.

Developers in Nashville, TN are suing 3 buyers who did not close on condos they contracted on spec a few years ago.  I noticed a post by a buyers' agent asking why we even have earnest money and that the forfeiture of earnest money should satisfy a breach of contract by the buyer.  This was my re...

Last week, in my office ...

Yesterday was a beautiful day.  It was the first sunny day in about 5 days so I quickly ran out to take photos of my Lakeridge Run listing in Nashville and got some good ones now that the seller took down the wallpaper in the kitchen and painted it a pretty, sunny yellow color that reflects the n...
Well, here we are in a down market in Middle TN.  It's the first one I've seen in my 15+ years of residency.
