Goodall was voted Builder of the year in 2014. They build a good home. Problems always arise in the building process but Goodall will stand behind their product. As always I would recommend that you have your own buyers agent because you will pay the same price with or without. You need someone watching out for your best interest. As far as the area goes it's a home run anywhere around here. The traffic is picking up but so is the population. I hope this helps!!! ... more

I agree with everyone's answers - the market suggests now is a great time to buy! However, to answer your question in a more straightforward fashion: The market as a whole usually slows down in the winter (Especially Mid November through December) - and gets very hot with the weather in the Summer!

But this is where it gets tricky: There are fewer buyers in the winter, so that might suggest you can get a better deal. However, there are also fewer homes available, so if you are looking for something very specific, you may have trouble finding it and thus may still pay a premium when you do find it.

In the summer, there are a lot more homes on the market, but also a lot of people looking. It can really balance out on both ends.

Also, if you are moving a family and transitioning school districts / communities - It may be best to buy in the spring / early summer. While you may pay a bit more, there is a lot of value in easing what can be an exciting, but often difficult transition.

Hi Sheila,

I see many others have answered your question and these are certainly helpful. For a very simple and straightforward answer, I have to back up Rodney's answer on this: The Fico score is definitely what most lenders use and thus would be the most important in my opinion. That doesn't mean the vantage score is irrelevant nor that you won't be able to find a lender that uses is, but FICO is what you should probably pay the most attention to. ... more

Will Johnson answered:
While it's varies depending on a lot of circumstances, a lack of road frontage does diminish the value. However, on a property that is already developed, the value is mostly based off of appeal to the buyer / renter rather than hard costs of build a structure or perform maintenance.
As Larry said, try to find out about any maintenance agreements.
If you find the property desirable, without the road frontage, because of other merits, then chances are that there will also be others who will see this value.
Regardless, from an investment point of view, unless the road frontage were to somehow change (and depending on the maintenance agreements) the value for the property is already determined with this in place and should not affect future resale value any further.

Hope this helps!

Will Johnson answered:
I think that it really depends. People may actually be willing to pay more for the home because they don't want to be close to a busy road. This is especially beneficial for families with young kids and pets. However, there probably will be people who won't buy the home or will want to pay less because of the easement. Overall, I wouldn't let that sway you from purchasing a home with little to no road frontage. It shouldn't have a huge impact on the resell value.

If you need help finding a home, feel free to call me at 615.420.0417 or Hendersonville is a great place to live! I wish you the best of luck choosing a home.

Danielle Beasley answered:
The local newspaper is a great resource for open houses, as well as the MLS website. Typically an agent will list their open house on the MLS prior to conducting it. Of course, one of the best ways to find Open Houses is to just drive around the areas that interest you, and look for the signs. ... more

Prentiss Holt answered:
There's no law, anywhere, which says you can't lowball an offer. The only problem you are likely to run into is insulting the seller/builder by doing so. If it is not imperative for them to sell the property, they may simply refuse to do business with you even if you raise your offer.

An agent can help you negotiate an optimum offer based on all the facts, but any sports fan is likely to love a risky play with the potential for big payoff. :) In my opinion? Go for it.

I used to work with many Nashville metro area builders, and if you have any questions or concerns you'd like to hash out, you can email me here on Trulia or via my website at, and I'll be glad to work with you.
