This article was written by William J Price but I thought the tips were worth sharing. You would think that taking a good picture of a house would be simple. It doesn't move or twitch, no perfect smile is necessary, nor is there that devilish red-eye that you need to correct. However, when it comes to selling your home, pictures have become a marketing tool that no serious home seller can neglect to include in their marketing plan. Approximately 90% of all home buyers begin their search on-line and photo curb appeal can help bring them to your door with a contract in hand. Good curb appeal can make a buyer fall in love with your home within the first 7 to 10 seconds after they pull up in front of it, you have a similar amount of time to capture their attention on-line before they move o...

One Person's American can be Another Person's Nightmare… Being affiliated with the real estate industry, I can fully understand how ecstatic one must feel when a buyer finally signs an intent to purchase contract and issues an earnest money check. For some buyers, the gambit of emotions leaves a feeling of uncertainty in the pit of their stomach, much like the feeling that they have eaten something that did not quite agree with them. Nevertheless, the transaction must proceed and an inspection is ordered. The property was a quaint little 650 sq. ft. cottage, built in an era where the code was: "Bud, There ain't no codes." But then, inspectors aren't "Codes Inspectors". Being generalists, we must ascertain whether the construction methodologies are "acceptable" and do not demonstrate maj...

KEY TO FINDING YOUR DREAM HOME! Today we have several Foreclosed Homes on the market in Great Locations but are in Less Than Perfect Condition.   Many times these homes are not being purchased by the average home buyer because of the cost of repairs and upgrades to make it The Home of Our Dreams.    Finding a Realtor that is Experienced and Knowledgeable in your local market PLUS also stays abreast of What's New and Available in Mortgage Industry is a Key to Success in Finding Your Dream Home!   When looking for your new home, don't always look for the home in perfect condition while conceding on that great location or style of home that's right for you.  There are many homes that may not be in perfect condition but are in the perfect location with that style and floor plan that works b...

Or is it Seller Beware of today's Buyers?  The term in real estate before all the disclosures came about years ago was Buyer Beware.  Today I wonder if it has become more of a Seller Beware market.  Sellers have the legal obligation to disclose everything about their property for sale and when in a binding contract, it is the Seller that has to put the effort and funds in to assure their property is closed and on time.  I wonder if Buyers today after putting the minimum amount of earnest money possible down to secure the contract, are still looking for a better house and a better deal!  Many times working more than one offer at a time, accepting one while they are bargaining for another without the agent or Sellers knowledge.  I believe today listing agents show protect their Sellers by...

We are seeing lots of snow pictures this February, 2010. Here's one more.We went to one of our listings yesterday, 120 Old Wynn Rd, Dickson TN and snapped a photo of the owner's horse in the snow. We love this property. We would love to find a new owner for it.  It is a treasure. This property is a great mini-farm, about 45 minutes from Nashville TN.  It is currently on 9 acres, but the owner is selling the house and 3 acres. The owner will sell all the land with a negotiated higher price.  It would make a great weekend retreat or a year-round home. There is a studio with bath and kitchenette, a barn, and fencing. House is at the end of a cul-de-sac.  There are goats, rabbits, a horse, cats....great little mini-farm and petting zoo.

1. I am not eligible for a VALoan.                                This may not be true; if you have ever served in the military as Active Duty, National Guard or Reserves you may qualify for a VA Loan. Contact me at brenda@imsiloans.com or call me at 931-206-1907 and together we can find out if you are eligible.   My own father did not know he was eligible for a VA loan until I became a loan officer and asked why he had never use his VA eligible. 2. I can only use my VA eligibility once.                                                                                                                        Not so! You can use your VA benefit over & over. You may even be eligible to purchase a second home using the same eligibility with bonus entitlement if your first home was under $144,...

(Acreage could take several weeks depending on how much land) NOW THAT YOU HAVE A SIGNED CONTRACT AND THE LENDER, PROCESSOR & UNDERWRITERS ARE BUSY; WHAT DO YOU DO? I AM GLAD YOU ASKED... DO: Hire your home inspector and have him inspect your new home; do this as soon as possible. This way if there are any major repairs you will have time to discuss your options with your Realtor.

Here is my true story: How Chickens & Credit are alike! Many years ago my husband was still active duty and was stationed at Ft. Campbell, Ky. So I followed him to Tennessee; yes Tennessee, Ft. Campbell is half in Kentucky & half in Tennessee. We rented a house in the country and as a city girl who loves animals; I started to collecting rabbits, dogs, cats, goats & wanted chickens. Now remember I am a city girl, a local friend said you can buy chickens by mail and gave me a catalog. This was a first for me and I chose the cheapest way to buy 50 chicks. Later I found out why it was so cheap: because the hens & roosters were mixed with no guarantee of how many roosters were in the batch. As my babies grew, I found I had 40 roosters (boys) & 10 hens (girls). A local farmer, let's call him ...
