clarksville tn: Paying Attention to Days-on-Market (DOM)
- 03/21/15 02:02 AM
When showing homes my buyers want the facts and ask how long a property has been on the market. The days on market do not always reflect the true story of the property. There could have been contracts that fell through do to financing, buyers could have gotten skittish and bailed or there could have been something that happened overall in the area such a extreme weather that stalled the market.
A good real estate agent should find out the history and report to the buyer. This can help in putting together a favorable offer to the seller. Please leave Roy Kelley a comment on his original post.

Drab Wintertime Landscapes Can Still Be Improved
Wintertime in Clarksville makes landscapes in my area look tired and lifeless because they are tired and lifeless. But there are ways to make them look improved, not totally neglected and better than the competition.
I viewed several vacant homes currently on the market and they all had some things in common. I saw summer and fall flowers lining the flower beds that had long ago given up their blooms and all that remained were dead, brown unsightly stalks and foliage.
Sprinklers and garden hoses were left willy-nilly through the flower beds and these won't

A self-proclaimed ActiveRain Lurker in Florida called me a few weeks before Christmas to give me an referral. He found me on ActiveRain and said he believed I knew my area well.
