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

Hendersonville is a fine town. It's close to Nashville, which brings with it the positives of convenience and the negatives of traffic. Interestingly, I've seen both Hendersonville, TN and nearby Smyrna, TN ranked as top places to retire.

Hi William,

It depends on the lender & the loan program.
For example:

I can do FHA & VA loans down to a 580 score but on USDA & conventional loans, I need a 620 or better.

Take a look at the recommendations from some of my past clients on my Trulia profile by clicking the link below my phone number.

Please feel free to contact me for more information or help.

Based on the USDA rural map, you can locate the eligible areas for USDA financing. All single-family residential properties that fall within the eligible areas are eligible for RD loans, provided they satisfy the other USDA property requirements.

Karen and Paul Catania answered:
I'm not up to date on TN contract rules but normally no. once the contract is agreed upon and signed you have committed to selling. The contract protects the buyers because it is common for sellers to think they can get a better deal after they have already signed. Some people just change their mind about moving. You can explain your situation to the buyers but depending on who they are or what they have invested in your deal I would expect a lawsuit. What was your goal to sell in the first place? Maybe rethink why you listed your house in the first place and that may ease your remorse and give you the motivation to move forward. Good luck! ... more

Dan Tabit answered:

Rent to owns are rare and even more rarely are they a good deal for the renter/buyer. The vast majority of rent to own renter/buyer's never end up buying the house. They are a great deal for the landlord/Seller as they get to collect large up front deposits and over market rent only to do it all over again in the same house. I consider it basically immoral and predatory in most cases.

Resolving credit issues isn't rocket science and a local mortgage lender can and often do assist buyers with this. Many things you can do yourself, others the lender can direct or assist you with.

Most people in this position are far better off renting the least expensive place they can stand to live in and save up some down payment, get on a budget and fix their credit. Once you are qualified, you can select any listed property in your price range and you've fixed the issues that hurt your credit.

You can change the pictures on any home that you've claimed. Go to Account --> Listings and select "Add More Photos" under the one that you'd like to edit. Then you can remove and change photos that you'd like to edit.

If you have more trouble, I'd suggest using the Trulia Help Desk -- They have great customer service!

Best of luck!
