THDA Offers Second Mortgage to First Time Home Buyers, at an attractive interest rate - 03/23/09 04:54 PM
One of my preferred lenders, Martin Harris, of Regions Bank, sent me an email very recently with information from THDA (Tennessee Housing and Development Agency). Beginning next month THDA will offer a 2nd mortgage to first time home buyers. This will give borrowers access to part of their $8,000 (up to) tax refund at the closing table. Regions Bank will participate. This solves the problem of those first-time homebuyers who are caught in a catch 22. They qualify for the $8,000 tax credit, but they have problems coming up with the initial 3.5% down payment. Instead of taking the THDA Great Start program at 6.125% (0 comments)
A beautiful contemporary home in West Meade, Nashville TN - Come Preview! - 03/23/09 04:38 PM
A home I previewed this week at 890 Rodney Dr, Nashville TN, 37205, is a lovely contemporary, built in 1987. The home has over 3,000 sq ft, and is priced at $509,900. This home is listed by Chris Lambos of The Realty Association. Chris and I first met a few years ago when he was the agent for his sister who bought a condo I had listed in Bellevue. It was a pleasure to work with him then, and I wanted to see his new listing last weekend. This home has an open floor plan, on 3 levels. There is a (1 comments)

Are Lenders And REO Sellers Getting Impatient With Listing Agents? - 03/17/09 08:29 PM
Sometimes I preview a foreclosure listing, or will see it on MLS, OR sometimes I have done a BPO for it, and I am very interested in how fast it sells. I like to track it to see how many days it is on the market before selling, and what it eventually sells for.I have noticed lately that listings don't always stay with the same REO real estate agent until the end. They might be listed with a broker for 30 days, and then that listing is withdrawn and the listing is given to another broker. These agents who lose the listings aren't always (7 comments)
I like to share insights about real estate, but we also like to write about life outside of real estate. We also love to read the wisdom and inspiration of others.
Nashville TN is an exciting city with many types of restaurants, several colleges and universities, and many styles and prices of housing. We love living and working in Nashville, and invite you to email or phone us with questions about living in the area, or just to talk about your future plans.
We have a diverse clientele; some are investors who want to buy more properties; some are investors who want to sell their portfolio; some are seniors who want to downsize; some are relocating executives who need a spacious home for entertaining and living comfortably. We have bank customers whose foreclosure & REO properties we list and sell.
We never rush our clients to make a decision, as we work on your schedule, not ours. We can refer you to private lenders, mortgage lenders, and other vendors in the area. And, of course, we never accept a fee for referral to a vendor or lender. Even though vendors come highly recommended to us, or we have had personal experience with their work, you should always interview them and get other references and come to your own comfort level with them.
Our work helps support Founding Family Charitable Foundation, a 501-C-3 nonprofit.
