We have many photos on Zillow. When we listed today, the info was added to the Trulia site, but not the photos. The photo on the site is 20 years old!

Hopefully you found a mortgage broker who could assist you. If not I know a couple who have done land loans in Williamson County recently and they may be able to help. Just email me if you need their names.

If nothing else, I think they are a tool to use in your seller presentation. According to NAR, something like 20% of home searches a done on a smartphone, so people are using there phones. I tell clients that it is a way to connect with a large portion of the market and most Realtors are not doing it. ... more

I love my Mac Book Pro but am still having issues with getting out of old habits I have formed by using windows based systems for most of my life. I'm sure the ease of use will come with time and practice but I do have to say I enjoy being able to have all products linked to one system as with Apple (iPhone, iPad, Macbook). ... more

Pat Tasker answered:
go to the office and work at your desk, even if you don't have something to do. LIsten to the agents that are there do they handle the issues they are dealing with? Chances are great that someone will need help covering phones or taking an open house, and by BEING THERE, you will have the first opportunity to take it!
remember: YOU CAN'T FLY WITH THE EAGLES IF YOU HANG OUT WITH THE TURKEYS, so hang with the positive producers :) Good Luck!

Marilyn Bell answered:
Those are all great answers, but I'd like to add that if the finishing of the basement was done with or without a permit can affect how an appraiser looks at it. Sometimes things done without a permit can lead to a deal falling through in the inspection contingency phase because things may not be up to code. Sure, it's heated and cooled, but the duct work was done improperly, etc.

Also, "in-law suites" in the basement can widen your buyer pool. Not necessarily that everyone has an in-law moving in, but some view it as a great space for a teen or adult child and some view it as an opportunity to rent the space out. I currently have all bedrooms on one floor, which worked for me at the time because I had a baby on the way, but these days I'd probably prefer my master in the basement! One caveat here - losing the garage will minimize your buyer pool!

If you'll get good use out of it, you should do it. As long as you don't go crazy on your budget, you should recoup your investment easily (although that sq. footage probably won't bring the same dollars as the upper floors). I make all my improvements based upon what will work for me first, while keeping in mind effects on resale since I know I won't live in or keep any property forever.

Clyde, this is true. Probably no square footage value on appraisal, but that doesn't mean the market wouldn't pay more for the house with this basement, than for similar house without. Still, be careful if the discussion turns to price 'per square foot' for the home.

How does the overall price feel to you (YOU are the market)?

This information is accessible by anyone once the house sells. If you need history, ask a REALTOR and they will gladly help.

If you are a Tennessee REALTOR, has the lead paint disclosure alongside many more forms. You'll need to set up an account.
