franklin tn: Should I Use Multiple Agents When Searching for a Franklin TN Home? - 11/05/14 04:08 AM
I get calls everyday from buyers who have signed up on my website and would like to see a property. My first question, "Are you currently working with a real estate agent?"
I am surprised at the number of people who will tell me they don't want to commit to one agent. When I press them as to why, they'll often admit they're afraid they'll miss the right house if they commit to one agent. In other words, they think talking to multiple agents will get them better results. Nothing could be further from the truth. As a matter of fact, … (10 comments)

franklin tn: Franklin TN Luxury Home Builders Would Be Wise Not to Bait and Switch - 11/01/14 12:59 PM
The housing market in Franklin TN continues to be very strong. The slowest moving price point is homes in excess of $1M. For buyers looking at these homes, there are some real opportunities. This doesn't seem to deter builders from cranking out million dollar new construction houses. With all the competition for Franklin homes in excess of $1M, finishes continue to be very important to buyers.

They want to see features conducive to sumptuous living; custom-designed and built with elegant finishes including gourmet kitchens with custom cabinetry, granite or marble counter tops, high-end appliances such as Thermador, Viking, Miele or … (6 comments)

franklin tn: You Never Know Who Will Ask for Information About a Neighborhood - 10/29/14 01:07 PM
For all you Nashville TV series fans, many of the scenes shot in this popular TV show are actually filmed in Franklin. I love it when I see my home town on TV. It makes me feel special in some way.
Anyhow, today I got another chance to feel special. I was contacted by the Film Location Manager of the TV series. Apparently, they want to film a scene in a beautiful equestrian neighborhood. They were seeking the contact info for the homeowner's association to get permission to film. Unfortunately, they weren't sure how to go about doing that. 
No problem--Google … (38 comments)

franklin tn: How Local Should Your Agent Be to Sell You a Franklin TN Home? - 10/11/14 05:57 AM
This morning I ran across a post on the internet written by a person who is marketing their real estate services in Franklin TN. This person isn't even licensed yet. He's in the process of obtaining his Tennessee license.
From what I could see, he was previously licensed in another state several years ago and decided to get a Tennesee license. He has a blog on his website and has been writing posts about the Williamson County housing market and his experience in this market.
First, he doesn't even have an active license yet. Second, he has never sold a property … (13 comments)

franklin tn: Is the Builder Negotiable on a Franklin TN New Construction Home? - 09/26/14 02:41 PM
Today, I sat down with a couple who is looking to purchase a Franklin TN new construction home. We did what so many of these builders do--we sat down and outlined all the things my clients want in their new home.
When we were finished, the couple was in sticker shock. As is so often the case, the prices on upgrades were outrageous. 
My clients and I stepped outside to talk. They felt strongly that our first offer should be to ask for everything they outlined. We talked about the recent comparables in the neighborhood and what we thought was a … (26 comments)

franklin tn: What Are You Marketing...Yourself or My Franklin TN Home? - 08/28/14 04:04 PM
What Are You Marketing...Yourself or My Franklin TN Home?
I recently received correspondence from a potential seller. He had already met with one listing agent and said he got the sense from meeting with her that she was more interested in marketing herself than his property. His question to me, "What are you marketing--yourself or my Franklin TN home?"  I thought this was a reasonable question. Given the fact that all he's interested in is selling his house.
The short answer is both. However, I do it in a way that will benefit you, as the seller. You see many listing … (27 comments)

franklin tn: Franklin TN New Construction Home Buyers Need Their Own Agent - 08/24/14 04:28 PM
Yesterday, I was contacted by a buyer who was looking to purchase a Franklin TN new construction home. She had scheduled an appointment with a builder to reserve a lot in an upcoming neighborhood and realized she needed the assistance of a buyer's agent.
Buyers were originally told the first homes would be completed by December 2014. After several delays, the builder is saying March 2015 will be the earliest occupancy.
My client is a cash buyer and was prepared to lay down a sizable deposit to hold the lot of her choice. When we arrived at her scheduled time, we … (9 comments)
