Last week we drove down to our Florida home by way of the Shenandoah Valley through western Virginia and into Tennessee.  I haven't been down this way since I went with my family as a teenager.  It is a beautiful ride. We stayed in Pigeon Forge Tennessee within the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. I was here last Wednesday and I had to think about Kat Palmiotti when I was here.  You may know the Kat lived in New York and loved hiking the Appalachian Trail which runs from Georgia through Maine including New York.This part of the trail is one of the most challenging as far as terrain as it runs along the Tennessee North Carolina Border.  The lean-to shelters built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the1930's include caging grates to keep campers protected from the bears.We really co...

For those of you thinking about investing in Pigeon Forge real estate or Sevierville real estate, getting close to Dollywood might be a very good thing! I know it's really hard to get those who think climbing LeCont backwards in snow is a good afternoons relaxation to believe it, but  Dollywood brings a lot to our community!  And more than just traffic!     25 years ago, Dollywood was the old Silver Dollar City where my sisters and I came to mine gold and gems, and just look at her now!  This year Dollywood was Tennessee's number 1 attraction, and won the top award in the amusement park industry-- the Applause Award from the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions.  The award is given every two years, and Disney and Universal have received the award in past years.  ...

It's Monday morning and snowing (again).... I am supposed to be working but it's so beatuiful and quiet that I keep getting distracted.  Probably not the smartest thing to put all the bird feeders outside my office window:)      I never had feeders til we came back to Tennessee this time and now I am an addicted watcher-- my own Red Breasted Woodpecker arrived for breakfast early today! Looking for your own winter retreat for bird watching, fire-sitting, book reading, skiing, mountain hiking or outlet shopping?  Try www.JaneTerrell.com -- the best website for All of the MLS listings!

Dollywood is a big attraction in Tennessee and is celebrating 25 years of greatness.  It is awesome to look back at the history of this amazing 150 acre place and see what has been accomplished over the past years.  Today, Dollywood includes roller coasters, live bands and music, educational festivals, local cuisine, and the great culture of Tennessee living.  This theme park is located in the midst of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, not far from the Great Smoky Mountains in Gatlinburg.  Dollywood initially began back in 1961.  It was created to educate the public of the Civil War by letting tourists ride a train, called the "Rebel Railroad".  There were numerous activities to do including an old time saloon, Civil War reenactments, a blacksmith shop and even a gift store that looked like an o...

February 14th marked the 8th annual Cure Finders Valentine's Dinner and Dance to help fund research for Cystic Fibrosis. The past few years, Brooke and I have been volunteers to the dance and charity event located at the Convention Center next to the Music Road Hotel in Pigeon Forge. Each year it has been a positive experience seeing our local community get together and help donate funds for the research of Cystic Fibrosis. It is dear to our hearts as Brooke's boss at the City of Sevierville, Jim Deanda, has two kids (Callie and Cale) with Cystic Fibrosis.  This year, I had two clients to work with on Valentine's Day and the day of the event, so I was a bit worried how I was going to fit it all into my schedule. I met with one client at 8:00 am which is pretty early to show property aro...

The real estate market in Sevier County has unquestionably been impacted by foreclosures and short sales of cabins. A large portion of the cabin sales, approximately 40%, have been either foreclosures or short sales. Among these foreclosures many were purchased at what I would consider bargains and some others were more along the lines of a typical selling price. It is vitally important to ensure the cabin is appropriately priced for a foreclosure before making an offer. I have seen some foreclosure cabins that are priced no more competitive than regular sales, yet have sold quickly on the market. I think part of this is attributed to when someone sees "foreclosure" they automatically assume it is a good deal. While this is often the case, it is not necessarily always true. The majority...

I suppose I'm an eternal optimist. I do think the best of people more often than not. I have to admit I was really excited when one of my agents was asked to do an interview for the local ABC affiliate. The story was supposed to be about how some absentee property owners here in the Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge areas were taking the rental income from their overnight rental properties and using it to pay their mortgages on their primary residences (lots of them are in Florida). Thus, creating a situation where mortages on their second homes/investment properties here are going into foreclosure or short sale and creating opportunities for the savvy investor. A complicated story I suppose. The report ended up highlighting the foreclosure/short sale portion of the story. Leaving out what I ...

I have received several questions from clients regarding the current state of the real estate and rental market here in the Smokies. I thought I would post my analysis for all to see regarding the Sevier County area real estate market, foreclosures, and the impact of the "real estate/mortgage bubble" on the local rental management companies. Below is my sometimes critical and as straight forward as possible analysis of the market. The overnight cabin rental business realized a decrease in business during the early summer months (compared to the same time frame in previous years) when gas prices spiked to around the $4 mark. I think it discouraged some visitors from traveling here and some from making plans to travel during the later months or at least waiting to book their vacations. Th...

I am a frequent visitor of local auctions - partially looking for a bargain on some real estate and in some ways for curiousity, entertainment, and getting a better feel for the real estate market. Recently, I have attended auctions by various companies including Furrow Auction Company for some beautiful commercial land in Wears Valley - where my family ended up purchasing 2.6 acres for what we feel was a good bargain (approximately $85,000 less than the current tax appraised value of the land). Other auctions included some large land parcels for sale by Thompson Carr (180+ acres off Henrytown Rd.) and McCarter Auction (70 acres off Thomas Cross Rd. in New Center). In both of these auctions the large parcels of land sold for shockingly low figures in comparison to what most people are u...

When life gets UGLY...AHhhhhhh....What a difference a vacation makes! I bet many of my AR friends here have wondered what happened to me lately. I rarely time time off to go anywhere.I know I am a work-a-holic and perfectionist that is constantly tweaking something.  Part of the reason I never leave town may be that I don't like to leave my little dog (Chanel)behind. So, I decided to take her with me and one of my best girlfriends down to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee in the heart of the Smokey Mountains. We found a fabulous new pet friendly chalet right on the Little Pigeon River. Late in the night as I was packing for the trip, I took a break and wanted an ice cream bar from my freezer. When I got it out, I found it was dripping. DRIPPING???? What the @!*%!! My whole freezer had melted stuf...

Thunder Mountain is a new development nestled in the peaceful “Little Cove” area of the Great Smoky Mountains. The development offers stunning views of Mt. LeConte, Cove Mountain, Bluff Mountain, and the surrounding mountain ranges well into the Smoky Mountain National Park. Its location is very convenient to the Parkway - only 3.3 miles from light #6 on the Parkway in Pigeon Forge and 4.9 miles from light #10 in Pigeon Forge adjacent to the Gatlinburg Spur. The spectacular setting of 400 acres is divided into 270 generously sized mountain estate homesites. Infrastructure is excellent as it provides wide paved roads, underground utilities (including city water, cable, TV, phone, and electric), and developed in a manner to maximize flat lots and unobstructed mountain views. Thunder Mount...
