What I Like Best about Hickory Wild in the SummerHickory Wild is a well planned neighborhood of single family homes when community amenities that impress home buyers. The common areas offer plenty of chances to mingle and get to know the neighbors. This is a perfect place to live for bike riding, jogging or taking walks. As for my favorite features, check out the clubhouse and swimming pool. There are picnic areas under the covered veranda and a pretty view. On spring and summer days, the homeowners use the clubhouse regularly and it is a favorite for the kids.All yards are maintained by the HOA with trash pick up provided. The professionally managed HOA oversees the common elements include the clubhouse and pool. Check out the restrictions for the neighborhood and the current HOA fees ...

Why You Need an HOA Buyers moving to Clarksville TN usually ask to stay away from HOA neighborhoods. They also want to know which neighborhoods have them and say they don't want anyone telling them how they can use their properties.  I find that buyers are not well informed about HOAs.  A Homeowners Association can be a very good thing to have and actually can protect property values and help you enjoy your neighborhood more. I don't find it as something to be afraid of. Those buyers that have strong resistance to them could have had a bad neighborhood situation with an HOA or heard a story from a friend. From my point of view, I want the protections that an HOA can give. In fact many home buyers share that feeling and only want to buy in an HOA neighborhood. Your home is the biggest fi...

Cleaning Tips for Making Your Home Ready for MarketWhen showing properties the very first thing I do is take a deep breath and smell. I want to smell a clean smell, no smoke and no pets. I want no cover up fragrances like potpourri, scented candles or air fresheners. Some basic cleaning supplies work best and will leave your home sparkling. White vinegar is a must and so are cotton cleaning cloths (or old t-shirts or diapers, the cloth kind). Small nail holes in walls can be filled with white toothpaste or a little bit of cotton. Of course the wall needs to be a light neutral color.  When you wash your cleaning rags do not use dryer sheets or fabric softener. These leave a residue and will cause a film to remain on glass. I use a lint roller to dust my drapes and curtains, the back and ...

It Takes a Team with the Seller Being a Key PlayerWhen I go to a listing appointment one of the discussion points is that the seller must be a part of my selling team. It takes a collaborative effort to the best price and terms that are in favor for the seller. It starts with the seller being willing to price the property in the market range. Properties that are overpriced, stay on the market longer and usually end up costing the seller money because the longer the home stays on the market, the buyers get more and more concerned there might be a problem with the property.It isn't simply enough to do the paperwork, put a sign in the yard and put in MLS. It takes strategies, excellent marketing and good photos to present the property favorably.The seller has a role as part of the team to ...

Clarksville TN is Becoming Home to Many As more and more people move to Clarksville for the job opportunities, for the lower cost of living and the proximity to Nashville, the atmosphere and friendliness of the city and welcoming nature of the residents get into their hearts and win them over.  Just today I have met two new couples that said how much they like it here and want to stay and buy a home. It helps that housing costs are some of the lowest of all of the Middle Tennessee area. We are blessed to have Ft. Campbell (home of the 101st Airborne Division) resides in our area, just adjacent to Clarksville. It brings tens of thousands of service people and civilian workers that contribute to the economy and population of the city. We thank them for their service.We have new industry w...

Take It One Step at a TimeTo get the ball rolling on building a custom home, there are several preliminary items to address first before you start the building process.   Engage the services of a real estate agent that has the experience and knowledge to guide you and look out for your interests. Don't try to go it alone. Have you decided where you want to live? Location determines price. Be open-minded to other options as some locations may price you out of the market. What surroundings do you want to have? Are trees important or living near water? Do you want to be in a neighborhood or out in the country? Do you want as small lot or acres of land? Do you have a preference as to the topography of the land? What utilities must you have? Not all areas have natural gas or city sewer. Rura...

Now Sold House on Iris Ln. Clarksville TN 37042This home is now sold and waiting to have some fix up done by the buyer that will make it a fine home. It was bought as an investor special and has a great floor plan that home buyers like. I like the big kitchen and bay window dining area. The master is on the main floor with 2 more bedrooms and another bath upstairs. There is a fireplace and a mostly fenced backyard.There are still investor specials in Clarksville's real estate market but buyers have to act fast. A prequalification letter or a bank letter saying the buyer is ready to move forward makes the seller more confident that the deal will close. If it is cash and not subject to appraisal will increase the chances over other financed offers.  Iris Ln. is in the West Creek High Scho...

Throwback Thursdays - Remember the MLS BooksBefore computers were used in real estate we had newsprint and MLS books. As I entered the business in late 1980, there were no books. Agents made photocopies of a handwritten description and photo of their listings and delivered to the other real estate companies in town.The really organized agents put these in a 3 ring binder and used it as a reference. Back in those days we got a bigger share of the commission if we sold in-house. When that wasn't meant to be we used the photocopies to find other properties that might work for the buyers.Two months after getting into real estate we got published books of the listings. The book was like the Bible and we scoured it looking for properties that we could sell.This was a highly confidential book ...
