Buying a Condo or Townhome Has Benefits Not every buyer wants to live in a condo or townhome but for those that do, they love them. I see many advantages of living in a condo as opposed to a single family detached home. It is much more of community living and that appeals to the lifestyle of certain buyers.Some buyers look at it as a shorter term solution while they transition from one home to another single family home. There are many types and styles of townhomes and condos and they are located in many parts of town.   You can see condos currently on the market for sale in Clarksville TN here.Take a look at some of the benefits: It's a community feeling. You get to know your neighbors and tend to be more involved in the neighborhood. Some offer monthly activities and events. Pools, wa...

 Begin EarlyDon't wait until the last moment to start planning and packing. I speak from experience that it take lots more time than you will ever imagine.2. Reach Out Early to the MoversYou want to get prices and estimates and int4erview companies and read reviews. Once you decide get on the mover's calendar before the date is no longer available.3. Start Cleaning and SortingThere is not need to pay to move something you cannot use. Start going through those things you have stored away. If you know how much space your new place has, be discerning and eliminate everything you don't need now or think you will not need in the future. Give away, share, throw away or pack it for the move.4. Gather Packing MaterialsIf you are not having professional packers then you want to make sure that yo...

Come Out for Some Hiking and BikingThe City of Clarksville has many parks to enjoy. Montgomery County also has parks and one of those is located within the city limits. I particularly like the feel of this park as it feels like taking a trip to East Tennessee and the mountains. Rotary Park has lots of  solitude and natural beauty that can be seen with each changing season.It was named after the Rotarians as they were instrumental in the park's initiative. Rotary Park is a county park managed by Montgomery County. To get to the park take Madison St. south from downtown and turn right on Ashland City ByPass. The park entrance is clearly marked on your left a quarter mile from the intersection.This park is one of the best for taking a nature hike or a bike ride. The trails are up and down ...

It has gotten to be so common that at every closing the attorneys and title companies are warning home buyers to beware of a very official looking document (it generally looks like a government envelope) arriving in the mail to the new home address just a few days after closing.The scam works something like this. The letter says:To receive a certified copy of your deed you must immediately send $85 to the address stated in this letter. You want to protect your investment and make sure you have proof of your purchase.It sounds very official and real. The amounts may differ depending on the scammer but they are generally from $50-$100. Buyers take the bait and send the money. A few weeks later the home buyer receives a certified copy of their deed, usually right after they have received t...

Does Luck Play into Selling a Home?Do you believe in luck? When I think about selling a home, I think there is 95% control over conditions, pricing, marketing, photos, strategies, showings and negotiations. The  5% that is remaining is the unknown such as market conditions or possibly having to deal with an uncooperative buyer or agent.  Selecting an experienced and hard working agent sets the stage for a series of events to take place that will cause the home to sell.  The seller must be cooperative and onboard to do certain things to get the home sold. That means he must prepare the home for market by doing repairs and having it looking its best. Home staging helps a home put its best foot forward.  Pricing correctly and making the home available for showings is a must. Then the agent...

Serendipity Sundays- Signs of Spring Are EverywhereIn Clarksville, we know spring is coming. Flowers and grass are growing and there are visible signs of spring everywhere. Temperatures have been regularly in the 60's and yesterday in the 70's.Another sign that spring is coming is my allergies are acting up. I can feel the pressure of weather changes and see the blossoms blowing in the air. Spring weather can be strong at times and we even had some hail a couple of days ago. It is like a see-saw.  The first flowers have emerged and beginning the fade. The irises and lilies are now a foot tall and will be producing buds in the next few weeks. My prediction is we will not have 6 more weeks of winter like Punxsutawney Phil said. The Redbud trees and Bradford Pear trees are fully bloomed an...

Inquiring Minds Want to Know. This is a point of discussion in almost every showing when a buyer is really interested in a property. How long has this property been on the market? In a hot market, buyers may be asking it because they know properties sell fast and if they don't act quickly, they may lose an opportunity to even make an offer.  Many times this information is on the public websites and buyers know when the properties come on the market and when they go off the market or come back on. We are dealing with very tuned in buyers in 2018.In a normal market, buyers want to know why a home hasn't sold yet especially if the home appears to be in good condition and priced fairly. This can be cause for concern and prompt the buyer to ask more questions about the neighborhood or potent...
