Will the Home Inspector Find Repair Items on Your Clarksville TN Home? The home inspection is part of the home buying process and and sellers have learned to expect them when they get a contract from a buyer. A buyer wants to know what shape the home is in and at the very least know if there are serious problems that are going to cost him money he may not have. The problem is in a very active market the sellers may not do any repairs for the buyers and if the buyer still wants the home, he will have to suck it up.  It is a love-hate relationship with home inspectors in many cases.There are a plethora of home inspectors in my area with all different levels of experience. They use different methods and reporting systems, and focus on differnt items taht are important to them. Regardless, ...

A VA Loan Has Advantages, Take a Look Whether you are active duty military, in the National Guard or Reserves, prior military service or a Retired Veteran, a VA loan may be available to you.

The Market Has Totally Recovered in Clarksville Tennessee The housing market has been healed with prices in some neighborhoods having risen 6-8% in the last year. Overall in Clarksville I see a full 6-8% increase the last 3-4 years across the board. This is because of the hot market we have seen especially in the last 18 months. This means if a seller wants to sell after owning for just 3 to 4 years, the seller will likely get out without having to bring money to the table. In some cases, they can put money in their pockets.Sellers are still contributing toward closing costs but not at the level they were a year or two ago. Buyers need to bring some money to the table even if they are getting a VA loan with 100% financing. Sellers are not willing to pay it all and they don't have to.Cla...

Clarksville, Tennessee's Market Is ChangingThis past year the market has been crazy and homes have not been staying on the market but a few days. Multiple offers became the norm and though that is still the case in many situations and neighborhoods, there are other listings that are beginning to market age and need price corrections. Some sellers are asking why their homes are not selling and the answer is that buyers are not paying over-market prices any longer. Most buyers need financing and in Clarksville that financing is typically government financing. Appraisals have begun to come in under sale prices and buyers are not agreeing to pay the difference. This is forcing the seller to adjust the price downward. The word is getting out and it is changing the market. Builders responded ...
