Last summer we had a melt down in the mortgage industry, and for a short period of time, getting a loan of any type was difficult. But now the mortgage companies have a way to get people into a home with little or no money down. The Federal government (that would be president Bush and Congress), have passed laws that allow FHA to insure loans of up to 97 percent. With some very legal gift programs that the sellers can participate in, buyers can usually get into a home for a very small amount of cash. You still have to qualify for the loan, and it has to be your personal residence. But things are not as bad as the media would have you believe. A large percentage of the Nashville real estate I've sold this year were purchased with $1000 dollars down payment. Most of my homes are at least ...

Looking for something to do in Franklin on the Fourth of July, or even July 5th!  This is another event in Franklin that my family doesn't miss.  The activities are centered around the Historic Franklin Square and filled with boutiques, vendors, arts and crafts, rides and games, music, and children's activitiies.  The event starts at 11:00am on Friday July 4th and ends around 9:15pm - just before the city's fireworks show.  The fireworks show starts at 9:30pm and will be located behind Franklin High School as it was last year.  The exact location is the Franklin Wastewater Plant on Claude Yates Drive.  IF you want to get a good view, you might want to check out the stretch of Franklin Road right before it hits Mack Hatcher, but get there early as the crowd gets big! If your kids are fee...

Franklin tn real estate Custom Home builders in Franklin tn have had some interesting challenges recently.

Real Estate in this country has been in the news daily for a year now, and all of it in a negative way. Let's face it, the news only reports bad things, good news is no news. Is that why the new media spins the Nashville real estate news in a negative way? What do you hear? Sales down 28 percent, inventory levels at it's highest point ever. Why don't you hear the news that prices have steadily gone up? Would that be considered good news? Better not report that, people might get the idea that the economy in Nashville is better than the rest of the country. Well the fact is that the job market in middle Tennessee is still growing, jobs are still coming into the area, and Tennessee is consistantly ranked toward to top of every list when corporate relocation is discussed. The fact is that N...
