Brentwood TN Real Estate
" Are You Sure This Is The Right House? " When a showing starts with this question it's all downhill from there.
Today I was out with buyers looking at homes in Brentwood TN. We were looking in the $250- $300,000 range and had seen a couple fairly nice homes when we suddenly walked in to
"Nightmare On Never Going To Sell Street!"
I proceeded to walk through this home and with each step it became clearer and clearer, no one was really all that interested in selling this home. Not the agent, or they would have done something about the condition, and certainly not the owner, as it was obvious that even an investment of a $5 can of oven cleaner or a mop and broom was beyond their scope.
Every toilet was scummy, the trim on the back doors was rotten and had been poorly painted with flat paint ! It looked like a hack job done by a blind monkey! The finished basement looked like it had been finished by Godzilla in a rush and the retaining wall in the front of the property was slipping outward alarmingly. I was appalled, this was not supposed to be a ghetto rental, you know what I mean? Brentwood is probably one of the most upscale areas in Middle TN! Now mind you, the average prices for a home in Brentwood is $400-$600,000 up to the Millions, so we were definately on the low side, but it was in line for the neighborhhod comps etc. The problem was that the other homes in the same neighborhood for approximately the same price were in much, much better shape! My question to the agent and the seller would be this. Are you blind? If you were looking for a home to buy and walked into this mess would you buy it?
Enough said ?~
