I heard Owl creek is a good community but can I know the reason of why prices are low in owl creek when comparing to other Franklin communities? I have seen few communities just beside Owl creek and they range more than 600k plus. Are there any cons in this community? ... more

I have always been under the impression that pictures are the most important part of a visual presentation for a listing because of syndication and the ease of using pictures to move around…

UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Hi Deb,

You would have to pay for what's called a flat fee listing service for your home to be on Trulia. You can easily post on Zillow, though.

We created UpNest ( to help home sellers get the best value possible. All you have to do is submit a few details about your home, and we'll invite several top local agents to submit proposals to you.

Since agents are competing to earn your listing, they bring out their best commission rates and value added services, saving you a lot of money. There's no risk to try us out at all, and it's completely free for you.

Good luck!

I would contact your real estate agent (or whichever one is listed on the home for sale) and the Trulia Help Desk. They'll be able to provide support for you, as this section is a general forum that real estate agents can access. And we don't have the authority to take down the listing :)

Best of luck!

I would absolutely get a home inspector in there both before and after it gets fixed. He will know best whether or not it's safe or a good investment. I would also talk to other people who live in the neighborhood and see if they've had similar problems. If you get an "all clear" from the home inspector and neighbors, then I don't see any reason to walk away. Best of luck to you! ... more

Granite is still the go-to countertop choice for many people. However, I've seen a lot of countertops with materials like wood and stainless steel. The wood is great because it provides a natural, rustic look and can be used as a cutting board. Stainless steel is great for more modern, industrial designs. ... more

As others mentioned, it's fairly normal for the square footage on the listing to differ slightly from public records. Paperwork may not have been filed right, or data could be missing. I wouldn't be too concerned about it, unless there's a huge variety in numbers. Best of luck to you! ... more

East Nashville does have a lot of older homes; the area is known for that. However, there are plenty of new neighborhoods in Williamson County for you to choose from. Here are just a few that I found in several different price ranges:

1. The Cottages at Bent Creek - Nolensville. These are new builds in a range around $260,000. The neighborhood is close to the highway, includes nature trails and a pool and has beautiful tree-lined streets. The homes are cottage-style and are a great option.

2 King's Chapel - Franklin. This is a bit further out but should be within 30 minutes of the medical center. This neighborhood has homes in the $500,000 to $600,000 range. It's a gated community with walking trails, creeks and a fishing pond. The homes are gorgeous and have a beautiful, open floor plan.

3. Owl Creek - Brentwood. This neighborhood is a great value with beautiful homes in the $400,000 to $500,000 range. It's connected to Owl Creek Park and includes a fantastic fishing pier.

I wish you best of luck in your home search! If you need any help, feel free to get in touch.

People here have submitted great data, however, as a father myself, I would suggest personally talking to the principal of the school, as well as parents of children who attend the school. That's really the best way to get opinions about the best and worst aspects of a school. Good luck to you! ... more

Here are my three favorites:

1. Annandale - Amazing amenities including with pool, lakes, walking trails and parks. Fantastic location with great schools and close to the highway. The houses have also done a fantastic job of retaining their value thus far.

2. Governor's Club - Definitely on my personal favorites list. "Elite" area with golf course, clubhouse, pool, etc. Just a gorgeous neighborhood with beautiful houses.

3. McGavok Farms - Includes a park, walking trails and a lake. It's also right beside the beautiful Granny White park, with fantastic athletic facilities, tennis courts, etc. It's in close proximity to downtown Brentwood with great schools, but not too far away from downtown Nashville.

Best of luck in your home search!

I am having the same exact issue. 3 days worth of email requests to remove photos of my purchased home, and not even a response to my inquiry. The MLS has been deactivated, and it is like no one is home at trulia to help out. Every other website was quick, courteous and professional.

Is anyone home at trulia?

Marilyn Blankenship answered:
As a predominantly executive neighborhood offering 1 acre lots (or a subdivision average including common area spaces to average 1 acre), Brentwood offers a lovely lifestyle.
Home prices in Brentwood didn't drop as drastically as many markets and they recovered sooner.
As stated earlier, there is an inventory problem. With the greatly attractive interest rates, homes are continuing to sell rapidly. An increase of 1% in interest rates could result in substantially higher mortgage payments. There is not a lot of available land so developers have little new inventory to release. Brentwood should remain a steadier market.

Hello there!

I would strongly recommend that you consider foreclosures, REOs, and short sales, if you're sure you want to look at properties of that type. The Holt Real Estate Group has more than a little experience handling this type of transaction: so if you're looking for someone to represent you through the process, check out the link below! ... more

Mold litigation is very important for liability reasons. If level are elevated you must disclose.
