Jackson is the county seat of Madison County, Tennessee.  The total population of the city at the 2010 Census was 65,211.

Gillespie Home Value Stabilization Act for America 2012   I have the solution to stabilizing home prices in America and turning around our economy.   As we all know, even with all of the HAMP, HAFA, HAFTA, HARP, TARP and all the other acronym's for the government plans to save the world, have had little positive affect on our housing market.  The ratio of successful refi vs refi applications is insignificant.   Here is the Meat of My bill.  HELOC Loans and other Junior Lein Holders, should be forced to SUBORDINATE their loans in order for the Homeowner to Refinance their 1st position mortgage.  Why isn't this happening?  Well, I had a in depth discussion with a regional mortgage banker, and I asked him, why don't the banks holding 2nd position loans, want you to refinance the 1st?  With...

So Mr and Mrs Buyer, you don't want to talk to my mortgage lender because?   What are the reasons a potential buyers won't talk to my preferred mortgage lender?   1) You are paying cash.   2) You are already prequalified for a mortgage.   3) You aren't that serious at buying now and your "just looking?".   4) You are afraid that they won't qualify for a mortgage.   I used to get really discouraged that I couldn't close a potential buyer on consulting with my preferred mortgage lender before writing an offer.  That was until I realized that nine out of ten times it's reason #4: They are afraid that they won't qualify for the mortgage loan. I know this because the ones that I have been persistent with, and getting them in contact with my lender, after pulling their credit, showed the true...

Starkey Window Repair Jackson TN I wanted to give a quick thank you along with a recommendation for Starkey's Window Repair in Jackson TN .   After the last hail storm we had, I had a couple of windows cracked at my home.  I called around to 4 or 5 of the local window replacement companies and came up short.  They all wanted to replace my windows with windows that didn't match.  No one, not even the builder could find me matching replacement windows for my home, and I didn't want to replace them all just to make them match. Then I heard about Starkey's Window Repair in Jackson TN.  Mr. Starkey came out and to measure my windows the next day, and in a few days later, came out and replaced the windows. It only took him about thirty minutes or so to repair both windows.    Good price..... ...

Happy New Year to everyone.  Its down to the last few hours of 2011 here in Jackson TN 38305.  I hope you've had a good and prosperous year.  I know we sure have.  Just about five months Mary Alice and I we had our third child, Caroline.  She is very special to me.  Our other children were good babies, but there is something special about her.  She is always smiling, happy, and its contagious.  She is tiny, only weighing in around 12 pounds.  That's a lot considering we started at only 51/2 pounds.  On numerous occasions, while out shopping or at restaurants, people asked if I was carring around a baby doll. Everyone please be careful tonight.  I know we will be up late with friends and families from TCA Trinity Christian       Academy playing rook while bringing in the NEW YEAR here in...

Companies that promote the non 100 percent business models, embrace the idea of Agent on Duty or Phone Duty to grow their real estate sales force.  Here's how it works.  A prospective buyer sees a yard sign.  The state requires that the office phone number be the dominate number on the sign.  Even though, you might have a rider on the sign that says in big letters, CALL ME!  HERE! AT THIS NUMBER 111-111-1111, the prospective buyer calls the office.  The agent answers the phone and scrambles to find the property on the MLS, and talk intelligently about the property enough that the agent on duty might be able to schedule a showing. You arrive at the home to show the property and obtain your first substantial contact. Its time to disclose. Here are the choices in TN. 1. Transaction Broker ...
