In a day when it seems that half the sellers are banks, we need to be very careful when they send us that stack of addendums after we've verbally agreed on terms. Yesterday, I had this happen where there was a form called "Waiver of Condition".  According to the form, my buyers where supposed to ...

Our fledgling BNI group has grown to about 6-8 people and become what BNI calls a "pre-core" group.  That is exciting for us because we will start using the BNI format at meetings and they will be more involved in guiding us and helping us grow.  BNI definitely has the systems to help our group b...

Over the weekend, I heard someone describe my favorite home inspector as "alarmist".  Now I could see how you might get that impression, but I wouldn't use that word for him.  Alarmist has the connotation that he blows things out of proportion.  Instead I would call him very thorough.   The discu...

I was hosting an open house yesterday in Eastwood Neighbors and had a couple different people ask me about the neighborhood. It's a great question, especially once you understand how diverse East Nashville is with some areas full of Ranch homes from the 1960's and other areas full of Victorians a...

I've recently become a fan of a somewhat unknown pocket of Inglewood called Gra-Mar.  It's an area full of ranch style homes from the 1960's, many of which were built on very large lots.  Part of the area is dubbed Gra-Mar Acres for this reason. The neighborhood is just south of Briley Parkway be...

I get questions all the time about this historic neighborhood just West of East Nashville. Sometimes it’s even considered part of great East Nashville, but I won’t debate that here. I usually describe it as a transitional area on the rise. It’s full of historic homes from the early 1900’s, much l...

I'm working with a friend of mine to get a new Chapter of BNIoff the ground in Nashville.  (A business networking group that allows just one person from each profession.) The first step was for us to attend a showcase meeting this morning at the BNI group in Franklin.  It was just Amazing! I coul...

When I'm hunting down properties to show to buyers I love to see the words "Easy to Show" in the listing. Another good phrase is "Vacant-Show anytime". On the other hand, making showings difficult is a good way to keep your house from selling. How about these:Make Offers Contingent Upon View Inte...

I enjoy working with clients who have the passion to take a neglected home and renovate it. Make no mistake, this is a BIG job. It will consume your life if you aren't careful, which is why it's so important to look for good bones."Good bones" is a way that people describe the fundamental parts o...
