I have a lot of business lately here in Franklin TN(best pronounced busy-ness) without a payday for a while. Just wondering, what gives? Just yesterday, I had showings for two buyers, in the morning and evening. On both occasions from the time I scheduled them, (the day before) until the time they decided on their favorite house, both were under contract. That is not supposed to happen in a buyer's market.
Around here, most offices utilize a showing service, so the typical banter between agents when scheduling showings, "how is in going", or "we're negotiating an offer right now on this one" doesn't always take place. Especially when you are trying to schedule a full day. Besides, I don't always put a lot of weight in an agent telling me "you better hurry, we're expecting an offer", unless I know the agent personally. Sometimes, depending on the agent, I even expect to hear that mantra.
I must say, in this case I got the message, there are a few price ranges in Franklin and Nashville where the pickins are getting slim. If you are a buyer around here, if you see something you like, be prepared to make that move. If you are a seller, price it right and make sure they show well. Both of these houses were staged well. We felt "at home" from the moment we walked in the door.
