franklin tn: Franklin TN New Construction Agent Commends Franklin Homes Realty LLC - 04/04/16 02:50 AM
A few weeks ago, I was sitting across from a builder's on-site agent. My client was ready to move from her small one-story home into something more spacious. She still wanted a one-level but with adult children and grandchildren, she needed more space.
In our area, it's customary for the new construction on-site agents to complete the builder's contract. The contract is emailed to us ahead of time. That gives us an opportunity to review the very stringent builder's stipulations with our clients before they actually sign.
Our client and I had met an hour earlier and reviewed the entire contract. She was … (2 comments)

franklin tn: The Age Demographic of Franklin TN Luxury Home Buyers is Shifting - 03/17/16 08:31 AM
Yesterday, I visited a Broker's Open House. This was for a new construction development with homes in excess of $800K. Food, beer and champagne were offered, as well as, a plethora of door prizes including a flat screen TV. This builder is anxious to sell the six completed homes he has in the neighborhood. 
The new construction in Franklin is going like gang-busters. Builders are cranking these houses out as quickly as they can, hoping they'll sell before completion.
Since the builders aren't building these homes for a particular buyer, the finishes they've chosen are meant to appeal to a wide variety of … (21 comments)

franklin tn: Is Your Franklin TN Home Seller Flexible on Price? - 08/16/15 08:01 AM
Today, I received feedback on one of my listings. In the feedback, the buyer's agent asked a few questions about the property. She ended the feedback with "Is your Franklin home seller flexible on price?".
First of all, we are the listing agents on this particular property. Our job is to represent the seller and his interests. we want to get the most money and the best terms for our sellers. That's what they hired us to do. We often hear this question from buyers but were surprised to hear it from a fellow agent.

franklin tn: Franklin TN Home Sales From 2 Years Ago Aren't Relevant - 06/23/15 12:34 AM
The other day I met with a couple who are looking to buy a Franklin TN home. They are moving into the area from a location just outside Williamson County. Some of these areas aren't performing as well as the Franklin market.
We discussed the need to sell their home prior to buying another and scheduled a listing appointment for later this week.
Last night, I received an email from them stating they wanted to see the comparable home sales in their neighborhood for the last two years. Home sales from two years ago aren't relevant. Housing markets go up and housing markets … (8 comments)

When I step into your home to give my listing presentation, I've done my homework. In many cases, I've looked at the past sales of your home and the listing photographs.

franklin tn: Why is This House Priced $58,000 More Than it was in 2012? - 06/03/15 06:33 AM
Today, I received the following email from a buyer.
I like this home very much. I saw a YouTube video of this house from Feb. 2012. The asking price then was $189,500. I can see that the seller made upgrades to the kitchen, flooring, etc. but did he make $58,000 of improvements to justify his $248,000 list price?
Here is the response I sent to this buyer: 
First of all, let's address the improvements. I'm not the listing agent so this assessment is based upon my visual observation. The sellers made several cosmetic improvements including hardwood floors throughout much of the first level, new … (10 comments)

franklin tn: Saturday Mornings in Historic Downtown Franklin TN - 05/31/15 10:50 AM
I love Saturday mornings in historic downtown Franklin. The first stop is the Franklin Farmer's Market. This is a wonderful place to buy fresh produce, organic meats, baked goods, plants and flowers. Several vendors also sell specialty jams, jewelry and homemade artifacts. 
We can't visit the market without a stop at Ellie's Old-Fashioned Doughnuts to say hello to our favorite donut maker, Danny and his family. Ellie's has the best hot cinnamon sugar donuts you'll ever eat. They melt in your mouth. It's hard not to have one while searching for ingredients for the week's meals. Music can be heard as local … (5 comments)

franklin tn: Let's Write an Offer on That Franklin TN Home - 05/26/15 06:53 AM
The Franklin TN housing market is RED HOT!
As a matter of fact, I can't repeat this phrase often enough. If you are a Franklin home buyer, you can't spare a day to consider a purchase.
On Saturday, I took out a young couple. They haven't seen many houses but want to take their time making a purchase. The first time they bought, they'd only seen two houses. In hindsight, they think that was a mistake and don't want to make it twice.
Unfortunately, this isn't the market to dilly-dally around. If you see a house that meets the majority of your criteria, you … (1 comments)

A few days ago I wrote a post titled Call Your Buyer's Agent for Showings. I got an email from an agent this morning who had read the post and he wanted to know why I would turn away business?

Our listings don't even account for 1% of the listings you will find on our website. As a result, many buyers who are already working with agents contact us to see homes.

Today while talking with a prospective buyer, I asked if he was already working with a real estate agent. He said he had not committed to one agent, nor would he. "Whoever finds me the right house, will get my business." In other words, whoever contacts him first, will get his business.
