knoxville realtor: Knoxville, Tennessee real estate sales for the week of May 24th, 2009 - 05/25/09 05:38 AM
Reading the weekly real estate transfers from the Knox County Register of Deeds office I see about the usual for the year number of property transfers recorded. This past week we had a total of 148

 
And as has been the case for 2009, mid to lower priced homes dominated the sales figures with the $100,000 to $150,000 the largest category once again.
Since the $100,000 to $150,000 price range is such a hot place in an otherwise lackluster real estate market let's take a look at some of the homes that buyers found enticing enough to buy recently.

knoxville realtor: Don't "Fall back" yet................. - 10/28/07 03:29 AM
Because Daylight Savings Time doesn't officially start in those states that observe it until NEXT Sunday morning at 2:00 AM.
Those 'helpfull' folks in Congress (the ones with the 11% public approval rating ;-)) enacted an energy bill in 2005 that included extending Daylight Saving Time by about a month.
As of 2007, DST starts the second Sunday of March and ends on the first Sunday of November.
Here's the DST schedule for the next few years in case you want to get a head start:
Understand that the sun, moon, and stars still keep to their regular schedule but timewise, starting next Sunday morning, it … (7 comments)

knoxville realtor: Ready or not Daylight Savings Time starts tomorrow - 03/09/07 11:44 PM
If you live near the equator, which most of us do not, your days and night are about the same length each; roughly 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness.

Daylight Savings Time is a simple concept that simply adjusts the way we keep our time. By moving the clocks ahead one … (2 comments)

knoxville realtor: Elementary staging tips for your Knoxville, Tennessee house - 02/22/07 01:49 AM
Staging is catching on in the real estate marketing world as a viable concept to get your house sold faster and for more money; two subjects near & dear to most seller's hearts and wallets.
Here's a link to a recent blog I wrote about how to stage your house so it rises above the competition, appeals to more buyers, and most importantly, makes them want to buy it for more money in a shorter time frame.
This is an example of a fairly inexpensive kitchen remodel I was involved in. Notice in the "before" photo how cluttered the countertops are with 'stuff' … (0 comments)

knoxville realtor: Not all flips flop; some flops can be flipped - 02/14/07 04:41 AM
I've been involved in real estate investing for fun and profit over the past few years.
One thing I've learned to be very true is that you make your profit when you buy a piece of property; you collect when you sell it.
I think, like real estate sales, a lot of people, Realtors included, watch too many late night TV shows and believe too much of what they read and see about buying homes with nothing down, no credit, no cash, and making a fortune literally overnight.
Might work but kind of like the Easter Bunny, I've never seen it happen … (5 comments)
