Some recent fun in the last few weeks…

Nashville :: home sold on the first day. Crazy. Well prepared and beautiful landscaping to compliment stunning 60’ maybe 70’ foot trees in the backyard. Did we give it away? Not a chance - received the second highest price in the neighborhood, outperforming half a dozen comparable homes this year; plus the several still available (we were second only to a recently renovated version of our home).

Nashville :: we paid 20% less than the average home price (27% below the median). Compared to a neighborhood home that closed within three weeks of our purchase – that meant 1,000 square feet… for FREE (about 2.5 two car garages worth of house). Pretty good first time purchase, especially with $8,000 still to come in the mail.

Williamson County :: THE house (the one we all wanted to hang out at as kids - pool, spa, game room, amazing private setting - even a community lake, the whole nine) was just purchased for $45,000 less than anything else in the neighborhood. Love it.

Thompson Station :: home sells in 30 days thanks to homeowner’s light décor, hard work (with three kiddos no less! Wow) and intense commitment to the showing process. Getting price? About $7,000 more than identical floor plan on the same street (that recently sold).

Murfreesboro :: Short sale purchase is the lowest ‘purchase price’ and ‘price per square foot’ in this highly desirable ‘Boro neighborhood… lowest of all *16 transactions* in 2009! Top ten signs you got great deal – 16 other people paid more :-) Another pretty good first time purchase, with $8,000 in the mail.


Are you or someone you know looking to protect yourself in the sale of your home? How about ensuring that you buy your next home right?


Are you ready to take advantage of the market?
