Why Living in Clarksville TN Feels Good Though I wouldn't call Clarksville a small town any longer, it still has a small town feel.

Sunflowers The end of the summer is a little sad as the bounty of flowers die off and cease giving forth blooms. Some parts of the country have already had snowflakes and heavy frosts. Most of the flower blooms are succumbing to the cold nights and the lack of extended hours of warm sun during the daytime.  However, this sunflower is not ready to let go. It is standing tall and looks unaffected by the nights we have had in the 30's and 40's. I love seeing sunflowers in their bright yellow colors. Their strong stature and color show that fall hasn't overtaken all of summer's creation, not yet anyway.

HOAs Can Be Good or They Can Be Not So Good, Check Before You Buy If you choose to live in a condo or an HOA neighborhood, you need to know the rules before you buy. Most HOA rules make sense and are in place to protect the values and looks of the neighborhood. You also need to know what the master insurance policy covers and what you will be responsible for maintaining and covering. There could be some limitations that you may not want to live with. Check before you buy.  These areas of concern: Have you read the Master Deed and Covenants for the community? Are their limitations as to family size or occupants? Is the HOA fully funded and operating as it should? Are there any lawsuits against the association? Have there been special assessments and what were they for? Are any major pro...

New Homes Fail Home Inspections, Too New homes can have problems just like older homes. Just because it is new that doesn't mean you should forego having a home inspection done as part of your due diligence.  Using a licensed home inspector to check out your new home is smart.  Remember, just because it is new that doesn't mean perfect. I see repair items on every new home inspection. Some of the lists are extensively long though the items may be minor, they still need doing. Chances are the things got overlooked during the construction process and the builder is not even aware they are there. When we write offers in Clarksville TN, most times the buyer wants to have an inspection contingency is written into the offer. This is something I always suggest and most new home buyers take hee...

Final Saturday of the Season It seems like just a few weeks ago when the market opened for 2018. It has been the biggest market ever with over 80 vendors participating.

Put All Valuables and Harmful Items AwayWhen selling a home including your Clarksville TN home, sellers need to prepare for showing by securing your valuables and putting away any dangerous or harmful items.  The obvious steps of preparation have to do with staging and getting the home in show-ready condition and clutter-free. When a home is ready for market and presents well in Clarksville TN home, it will sell faster and bring a good price. Home sellers need to take that extra step and put valuables away, out of sight and in a safe place. All valuables should not be visible as they could be a temptation for little hands during the showing. It is common sense to not have jewelry and money laying around. Guns and prescription medications and any other dangerous or harmful items should b...
