first time home buyers: Tips for Spring Gardening! - 02/22/11 07:00 AM
 

This week-end in Clarksville was just perfect for getting outside & working in the yard.
Looking around the yard after a long cold winter can be over whelming so here a a few tips to get you started!
Check out the yard: Start by taking a walk around your yard and make notes of items you find such as trees, bushes and/or plants that need trimming. Check out fences, steps and pathways that need painting or repair from the winter weather. Notice the condition of your flower beds & what needs to be done to have them ready for spring … (5 comments)

first time home buyers: Happiness Quote - 01/03/11 05:20 AM
Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed.
Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with Love, Grace and Gratitude!
by: Denis Waitley

This quote touched me because many times I find myself looking at the past or what the future holds; to find that I am missing the moment of Now!
This holiday I took time to enjoy the little things like my home full of sounds made by my family, the excitement of my grandchildren just enjoying life and just talking with my children.
It did not matter to them that dinner was served … (6 comments)

first time home buyers: For Sale By Owners: New home buyer beware... part 1! - 11/18/08 08:39 AM
Buying/Selling a home is a complicated transaction that includes many legal forms required to comply with the law. 
Real Estate Professionals spend hours in class to keep up-to-date on the changes so they can provide the best service and protect their Buyers and Sellers.  
Even with all the information on-line it is difficult for  non-professionals to completely understand and comply with all the required documents for selling a home.  
I have seen many Buyers disappointed when they purchased a home from a for-sale-by-owner.  
I hope that this series will help you avoid many pitfalls and give you a quick reference to some of the required documents.

first time home buyers: For Sale By Owners: New home buyer beware... part 2! - 11/18/08 08:34 AM
Pricing a home to sell is one of the toughest jobs... to decide on the correct price you must know the current and local market.
Many home owners put years of hard work and money into their homes; it is very difficult for them to be objective when setting a sales price. Home improvements do not always have a dollar for dollar return... Pricing a home for sale depends on what has sold recently and what is similar to the home being sold.
Sellers normally do not have the data to make a good sound decision. Many times a for-sale-by-owner will disagree with a Realtor and price … (2 comments)

first time home buyers: For Sale By Owners: New home buyer beware... part 3! - 11/18/08 08:23 AM
The condition of the property is one of the most important factors deciding ... did you get a good deal!
Buying a home is so exciting but many buyers get caught up in the cosmetic appearance of a home. It is the bones of the home that will determine how much it will cost you to maintain your home.
In Tennessee a Seller is required by law to fill out a "Property Condition Form". Many Sellers do not know this is required by law and many For-Sale-By-Owners do not meet this requirement.
This form is the seller telling you about any defects in … (4 comments)

first time home buyers: For Sale By Owners: New home buyer beware... part 4! - 11/18/08 08:20 AM
The terms of the contract is what will determine how much you will pay for your new home, when you will close and who will pay for what services.     
Each area of the country has different normal terms for real estate deals. Some areas the Seller pays everything; other areas the Seller pay for nothing. The type of loan you are getting also determines who can pay for what and often restricts or limits what can be charged and who is paying.
This is where you need to do your homework and find out what is normal for your area. Why agree … (2 comments)

first time home buyers: For Sale By Owners: New home buyer beware... part 5! - 11/18/08 08:16 AM
The contract is the heart of the real estate deal! 
The contract will state the closing information such as date, where and with whom, sales price, type of loan, what the buyer & seller will be paying for plus much more.
The contract will also give you an out (if it has the proper contingencies) for things such as: you do not qualify for a loan, that you find the house with a serious defects or the property appraises lower than the sales price.
The contract also will give you options for remedies if thing do not go as planned. (again if it has the proper … (7 comments)

first time home buyers: Financing a Home... Do I need Title Insurance! - 11/01/08 04:24 PM
OWNER'S TITLE INSURANCE
 
What is owner's title insurance?
Owner's title insurance provides you with protection against the loss of your home caused by somebody in the future finding a defect in your title.  Unlike other types of insurance that protects against losses from future events, title insurance provides protection from past events, which may or may not be a matter of public record.
What if I don't have owner's title insurance?
If a problem with your title occurs and you don't have owner's title insurance, you could lose everything you've invested in your home or face expensive legal costs.
