davidson county: Understanding Real Estate Absorption Rates Before Selling Your Nashville Home - 02/04/14 05:12 AM
There is far more to selling a Nashville home than cleaning the carpets, slapping on a fresh coat of paint, upgrading fixtures and having a Realtor post a “For Sale” sign in your front lawn. First things first, you need to understand your current market conditions and absorption rate in order for you to price your home competitively.
So what is a real estate absorption rate?
Simply stated it is the number of weeks it takes to sell the current inventory at the present rate of sales – an extremely important element all sellers must factor … (1 comments)

davidson county: Nashville Area Oak Hill Home Sales: August 2009 Market Report! - 09/07/09 04:14 AM
 Happy Labor Day! 
Well, if you were hoping for another great month of sales in Nashville's satellite city Oak Hill, then you are in for somewhat of a disappointment. 
Only two real estate closings this month in this area of Davidson County.  The good news is that they did not take too long to sell - an average of 57 days! 
The house on Caldwell needed a lot of updating, not so much with the house on Forest Acres. 

Sales typically slow down in August - it's the end of the summer, children are headed back to school, etc.

davidson county: PBR Stands For Something Other Than Pabst Blue Ribbon: Professional Bull Riding! - 09/04/09 01:55 PM
Okay, I was born in Nashville, TN.  I was raised right in the heart of Davidson County (Nashville).  I have heard a lot and seen a lot related to Western and Country Music and the whole lifestyle of it. 
Now let me say this before I start my story... My parents were both loving and supportive and generous, providing me lessons in a variety of athletics, art and music.
Let's just say that my parents didn't exactly raise me to appreciate the finer points of being a "cowgirl" in the "big city" and, while they did love that I excelled at my … (1 comments)

davidson county: Nashville Just Declared to Be in the Top 10 Cheapest Cities to Own a Home! - 09/29/08 03:25 PM
That's right.  Nashville, TN has been hailed as one of the top 10 cheapest cities to own a home in!
I saw this report on the Realtor.org website - apparently this report was researched by Forbes and they got their information from the 2008 Census Survey.
My boyfriend has been telling me for a long time now how cheap it is to live in Nashville.  He has lived all over - New York City, San Diego, Minneapolis, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and now Nashville.  The reason he has STAYED in Nashville is because it is a great little city that is VERY … (1 comments)

It's inevitable:  I have been up working for a while and it hits me.  Those lunchtime hunger pangs.  Those "I can't go on if I don't have FFFOOOOOODDDD" feelings. 
Well, Nashville, if you're near White Bridge Road near West End, then pop in to Caesar's Italian Restaurant where you can get TWO buffets plus two soft drinks for $12.48 (with your Clipper Magazine coupon, that is)!  It's kind of tricky to find - not obvious at first.  Look for the Target, Stein Mart and the Office Max.  Caesar's is to the right of the Office Max in the corner of Lion's Head … (0 comments)

I live in the Oak Hill subdivision of Nashville Tn, close to David Lipscomb University.  My Davidson County house was built in the 1940's.  A lot of the homes in my neighborhood and on Glendale Lane have small barns and/or potting sheds in the backyard. 
Because my Glendale Lane home is an older one, there are a LOT of projects that I have been wanting to do. 
One of these "fixing up" projects was to paint my house.  Well, that has turned out to be the easiest of the projects, although I can't say that painting the house was any fun.  … (0 comments)

davidson county: Ola! Some Las Chivas for You, South Nashville style? - 09/24/08 07:55 AM
Named for a popular soccer team, Las Chivas is a great Mexican restaurant in South Nashville on Nolensville Road near the intersection of Harding and Nolensville. 

The service is fast and the food is great!  There is hardly ever a wait - just walk in and be seated. You can tell from the moment you walk in that this place is going to be good - there are four television sets blasting soccer games and Mexican soap operas!

I usually order fajitas - they have them every way you can imagine.  While waiting on the fajitas, I like to munch on the … (0 comments)

Well, as Bank of America throws a lifejacket to Merrill Lynch and AIG struggles to find a way to keep its head above water, we at least need to ask why did this happen?  And what does it mean to us in Nashville, TN?  What does it mean to buyers looking for a home loan in Davidson County?  Are we all in for some … (3 comments)

davidson county: We Heard the Bad News, Now Here's the Good News for Nashville Home Buyers! - 09/16/08 05:46 AM
Last night, I watched the National Evening News and it seemed almost surreal as they were describing the three big companies falling apart.  The DOW dropped 504 points and they were talking about long term recovery issues.  STOCK MARKET CRASH!!!!
I could not help but think to myself that really this does not affect me very much.  I will still get up and go to work the next day and continue to do so probably until I am dead.  It won't keep me from leaving some money in stocks and maybe even buying some now.  (Buy low, sell high).

We are all aware of it.  We are all living in it and with it.  What is IT?

Now fortunately (if you live in the Lipscomb area of Green Hills), our Davidson County market has held fairly steady with maybe just a slight decline in price value - especially in the non-remodeled homes.
So, whether you are planning on staying in your home for a while or if you are wanting to put your house on the market and get the highest value possible, a remodel is a good idea.
Not just ANY remodel will … (0 comments)
