Your agent should not be making statements like that, it may well be a violation of the Fair Housing laws. It is called steering. Would suggest having a candid discussion with your agent about why he/she said what they did. ... more

We had a home built in a Regency neighborhood. We are extremely disappointed by they way their HOA has been run since they received our dues. They do not feel they owe any explanations on what is being done. They are refusing to be responsible for erosion taking place and for a broken down pond drainage system at our entrance. They will not answer phone calls or respond to emails. They are an untrustworthy company and all about their profit. ... more

The area in the south side of Poplar is great and has a good resale value. The north side is crowded with some older and smaller homes. The new high school is being build on the south side, because their is no room close to the old high school, just a big dangerous dirt business. A lot of the homes has front load garages on north side ... more

If you are moving from NYC, you probably want Germantown (generally older home, not great highway connectivity to commute to downtown) or Collierville (many options of newer homes). Arlington can work out but is quite far away from places. Think commute time for Memphis in 10-15 mins. Anything over 30 mins is find for NYC but quite a lot for Memphis area :) ... more

Interest rates and the cost of financing is based on the lenders risk. The higher the risk to lender, the higher the cost to the borrower. Wait until your score is at least 640 before you consider buying a home.

LeAnne Anies answered:
That is a great question. It really depends on the comfort level of your monthly payment. Ask your lender what your monthly payments will be at $350k, $375k and $400k. This will give you an idea of what your monthly expense will be at each of the pricing structures. Then you can make an informed decision with your Realtor where you want to purchase. ... more

The reason there are basements in the north is because of the freeze level. Up north the freeze level may go down over four feet. The foundation must go below that. So if the have to dig out that much, they may go a bit deeper and make basements or even rooms. In the Memphis area the freeze level is about 18 inches. So its not necessary to go that deep. Saves money and we get more housing above. Ask a home builder.

Collierville in General has an over supply of resale homes. Pick a good Real Estate company that has a lot of web coverage as there appears to be a lot of people looking at Collierville. In the future there will be a shortage due to the lack of building. The market has bottomed and it is a good time to make a deal and you will reap the benefits as Collierville is prime real estate. ... more

Hi Azee,

I tend to agree with Steve -your biggest worry is with DIYers without permits or code knowledge. The scary electrical problems were related to the houses of the '70's when aluminum wiring was prevalent.

Jo Shaner answered:
Sold a couple of houses in your community and it looks as if you are in the ball park @ $97 to $98 per sq ft - however looking at the pictures you could declutter a little or remove some of the large furniture in the house. This is not to hurt your feelings or your decor sense, but if a potential buyer can't vision their stuff in your"re not going to sell easy. A stager can do miracles for little $$. It is not about decorating - more about function of your property.

Also, the houses in the back sell easier than the ones that face Collierville Arlington Road -so you have to adjust for that.

Lastly, if over 87% of all buyers first shop on line - why do you have a non friendly asking price? Your propertie's search power is limited. People do not search in ranges of $169,900 to $189,999. That is great for printed matter, but not for computer searches. It should be at either $185,000 or $190k to get maximum results.

I truly wish you well and best of luck.
