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...

It never ceases to amaze me the workmanship that I see in some of the houses that I see built today. This menagerie was used to support a support column for a set of arched load bearing walls in a high end house in Brentwood. The sellers did not get a home inspection when they purchased the house a few years back and now they are having to bear the expense of the builders error.  Have you joined my birthday alarm? It is fast painless and the best part of all, you will be helping me out. Because I need your help, subscribe to my blog.
