Smells Can Offend a Buyer, Even Perceived Good SmellsWhen listing a property, listing agents want the seller to put the home into the best shape possible to attract the biggest pool of buyers. Agents have to be bold and share news that some sellers don't want to hear. It is our responsibility and duty to tell the sellers if the house has offensive odors. When you come from outside breathing the fresh air and step into the home, the smell of pets, cooking, and smoking odors can all be detected immediately. In the seller's defense, when you live with these odors they become part of of you and you stop noticing. Comments about odors are not meant to offend the seller, they are meant to address the problem. It is my job to help the seller get the best price possible and present the home in ...

Clarksville's Market is BoomingThe numbers are in and the proof is in the stats. What we all suspected is evidenced in the strong amount of sales, the rising sale prices and the limited days on the market in May.Over May 2017, there has been an almost 15% increase in listing prices. Some of this has to do with all the new construction and the rising cost of building materials. We currently have under a 2 month inventory. The advice for sellers is that if you are seriously interested in selling, price your home correctly, have it in market ready condition and make it easy to show and it will sell.The advice for buyers is to get your financing in order, educate yourself on the home buying process, be ready to look when a home meeting your critieria comes on the market and make a strong an...

June is National Homeownership MonthI believe in owning real property. I believe in owning your own home. In Clarksville TN there are strong reasons that homeownership is a source of personal satisfaction and builds personal wealth. Take a look at the reasons to buy a home and realize the American Dream. Buying can be less expensive than renting. Rental properties are expensive and qualifying to rent can be more difficult than buying your home. With pet deposits, first and last month rent due, high security deposits, all this adds up and takes a chunk of money. Some of these expenses you will never get back. Homeownership still creates pride in ourselves. it is an accomplishment and an achievement. Owning your own home provides freedom to decorate as you choose. Paint your walls bright ...

From Contract to Closing a Home The market is hot and that means lenders, home inspectors, appraisers and title companies are super busy and backlogged. If you are selling your home in Clarksville TN, once the contract is signed more work begins. The contract is used as he road map to the closing and should be explicit and clear as to the agreement between the buyer and seller. It is taking a minimum of 30 days to get homes closed if a new loan is part of the financing package. It may be better to allow 45 days to get the home closed. If it is a cash sale it can be done as quickly as a week to 10 days.The title search is ordered early in the process by the lender to make sure the title is clear and there are no roadblocks that need straightening out.The sellers agent will stay on top of...
