Tennessee is known for it's panoramic mountain views. Lots and acreage can be found in your typical subdivision and country settings. With gently rolling or steep inclines purchasing a piece of property is more than the beauty captured in a picture.                                                In order to protect you, your new investment there are 2 essential steps prior to purchasing your new parcel. I strongly suggest while negotiating you ask your agent to place a contingency in your offer to purchase. A contingency protects you. It allows you to gracefully and legally terminate your offer IF your contingency has not been met. For example : You are purchasing a 1 acre parcel. There are no documents on file.

Why hire a Realtor, Tennessee? When it comes to selling a home or property there is a lot more to it than a For Sale Sign.  Maybe you have sold a few homes in your day but keep in mind that most Realtors have sold Triple that amount if not many more. Experience is key. You might be thinking "I don't want to pay the commission fee's and if we try to sell the home on our own we will save money". This is almost never the case. A Realtor knows the market and can let you know what your home will sell for. At the same time, one of the many skills a Realtor must posses is Negotiations! According to the National Association of Realtors, a home sold by a Realtor brings in an average of 82% more profit for the seller. Who's coming to your door? When you hire a Realtor you have a personal people s...

Purchasing a new home is exciting. Remembering everything you need and want to do is sometimes challenging. As a Mother I remember the days of having to child proof my home. I remember moving from my old home into my new home and child proofing all over again was stressful. The stress of familiarizing myself with the new home and yet looking for the things that could be potential hazards. When was the last time you crawled around your home on your hands and knees? Probably not since you were a young child. As strange as it sounds, it may be time to try it again especially in a home you are not so familiar with yet. Your everyday environment is new and worthy of exploration to young eyes, which is why it's crucial to get down on the floor and see things from your little one's perspective...
