By David Israel, Business Manager I have now been living in Chattanooga, Tennessee for almost 4 years, and my "Best Week Ever" is less than 30 days away.  Riverbend ‘08 is almost here.  For those of you who are reading about this festival for the first time you are certainly in for a great treat.  The festival began in 1981 on a small strip at Ross's Landing and it has grown to a nine day event with over 100 performers on 6 stages.  In fact Andy attended the very first Riverbend festival. This year's three biggest headliners will be ZZ Top, The Black Crowes and America (who will perform with the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera). The festival organizers have pretty much mastered this event.  You do not need to purchase individual tickets, instead you purchase a pin.  This pin gets you int...

By Andy Hodes, Realtor Many times Buyers ask about the importance of a home inspection if they are getting an FHA or VA appraisal.  When the FHA or the VA is involved, the appraisal, in addition to establishing value, looks for certain standards in the home so that its loan can be insured (FHA) or guaranteed (VA) by the federal government.  These standards include several, but not all, of the same items covered by the home inspection.  Last year the FHA loosened their standards and we now rarely see any FHA concerns while the VA's standards remains vigilant. In either case it is essential to obtain a complete home inspection by a licensed home inspector.  While the FHA and VA appraisers are looking for certain things during the 15 to 20 minutes they spend in a home, a good home inspecto...

By Kacey Sides, Buyer Specialist So an agent wants you to sign a Representation Agreement.  This binding agreement may not be something that you want to sign if you don't know all of the benefits, facts about representation, and you are not yet comfortable with the agent that is asking you to sign it."How having a Representation Agreement" benefits you - 5 great reasons:1.  Your have the loyalty (and the legal requirement) of your Realtor to put your best interests first.2.  Your Realtor has systems in place to make sure you and he/she are up to date on a regular basis with all of the homes that come on the market with your criteria, so when your perfect home comes along, you are one of the first to know about it!3.  It educates you on the home buying process, and gives you all of the i...

You've watched the news and read about it in the papers. You know, the "credit crisis" and how buyers need 20 percent down in order to buy a home? And even if you found a buyer with 20 percent down, lenders aren't making loans anyway. So, why bother, right? Wrong!We're right smack in the middle of what just might be the biggest disservice ever perpetrated on potential home buyers.  It seems the press just can't get enough of all the gloom and doom in the housing industry.  The fact is that mortgage money is as available today as it was a year ago and loans are being made this very moment with little or no money down. And, no, platinum credit isn't required.  You just need to know where to look.  Who are these lenders? They're right down the street.Federal Housing Administration (FHA) lo...

  Courtesy of Rob Robinson of The Robinson Home Team     An Open House is an “old school” and outdated marketing technique still widely used by the vast majority of real estate agents. It is intended to expose a home you have listed for sale to potential buyers. How it works: Your real estate agent places an Open House ad in the local newspaper inviting the public to come tour the inside of your home. This usually is set to take place on a Sunday afternoon between the hours of 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. The agent hosting your Open House will oftentimes make suggestions about “staging” your home prior to showing in order to enhance its appeal to a potential buyer. (Staging a home is a very smart idea, and we do recommend you take the time to do this.)For the duration of the Open House your agent ...

If you have recently been involved in any type of remodeling project or even made a quick stop at your local Home Depot or Lowe's, then you should have heard the term "Low VOC Paint".  What is Low VOC paint and why does it matter to me?  Did you know that indoor air is actually 3 times for polluted than outdoor air.  No wonder sitting in the house tends to make me crazy.  Read the following article for some very interesting information. http://www.eartheasy.com/live_nontoxic_paints.htmRealtor Ryan, Broker

 Courtesy of Rob Robinson of The Robinson Home Team  The Multiple Listing Service, or "MLS", is a giant online computer information warehouse used by the real estate industry to list homes that are for sale. On any given day in the Chattanooga, Tennessee and North Georgia area there are thousands of properties for sale. But did you know that 97% of these properties are never advertised in the local newspaper or in one of those glossy (often outdated) "homes for sale" magazines? So how can you find them?  Asking a Realtor for help is usually the best way: Real estate professionals with specialized training can build powerful MLS  searches for clients by selecting from hundreds of home feature criteria using subscription-only search tools. But with access to just a few of these same power...
