The old mall in Bellevue is basically a ghost town. I know that there were talks of selling it or leasing it out. However it's been awhile since I heard that.

Has anyone talked with you about other areas?

Feel free to call me at anytime. I would love to help you figure out which area is best.

You should work with your own trusted and personal Buyers Agent, you one stop real estate resource center!! Read on to see why:

Please use a Buyers Agent
Pleases if you are interested in buying a property, do yourself a huge favor and work with an experienced local Realtor, do not do this on your own!

and here is WHY:

I am wondering why you ask this question here at Trulia, if you are an interested and determined
buyer, you definitely should connect with a local Realtor, a buyers Agent, ie a Realtor who will be on
your side, protecting your interests, finding the right property, arrange showings, answer all your
questions, help you right a good offer, get you also pre-approved for a loan, and negotiate on your behalf the very best sale price and terms and if you commit to one trusted Realtor, he or she will commit 100 % to you and his or her services if you make an offer on a property listed by a Realtor/Brokerage in the multiple listing service will be FREE to you, as Buyers Agents are usually
paid by the seller's side, out of the sellers proceeds at the closing table...ALL THAT IS REQUIRED FROM YOU TO WORK ONLY WITH ONE REALTOR AND TO BE 100 % LOYAL TO YOUR PERSONAL BUYERS AGENT!

Why would you want to do this on your own, when there are so many details to be taken care of the
right way and so many details need to be paid attention to, inspection appraisals, loan commitment, walk thru etc. etc. in order to bring an offer to a fully executed contract and that to successful closing and home purchase.

Give it a second thought and hopefully you will decide to work with a trusted Realtor, who is experienced in your areas of interest. Please commit to only ONE Realtor!! If you need recommendations get back to me I gladly forward you names..

Sincerely yours,

The condo market can be challenging at the moment as financing options have been severely limited because of changes to Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and FHA guidelines. Before assessing value on any condo these days you'll have to do a ton of research. Is it FHA approved? Does the investor concentration meet conventional guidelines? Does the commercial aspect fit within guidelines? Are there any lawsuits? Assessments? Foreclosures? Short Sales? HOA reserves funds? You get the idea.

It's pretty hard to blanketly give advice when you are comparing two buildings with no active listings or recent solds.

Sarah Goulart Nathe answered:
This depends on what information you are talking about. In general, listings have a 2-4 day delay from when they are listed to when they hit this site. I have not used it for recent sales very often. Does your town allow you to search the public records for recent sales? That may be a better way to present your information than from a website like this. ... more

Hello there Mr. Randell,

I can't speak for the Norfolk real estate market, but as a professional real estate agent with years of experience in Nashville, I can tell you that the Nashville real estate market is continuing to show encouraging trends as each month passes in 2012. The number of home sales is increasing and pending sales are strengthening, too.

Infact, I just blogged about the Nashville real estate market today, based off numbers I received from a March data report released by the Greater Nashville Association of Realtors. Give it a read and you will see that the Nashville market is strengthening rapidly. The blog post, titled "March Home Sales | Nashville Real Estate," can be found here:

As far as the options for renting out your home in Virginia and renting and/or buying in Nashville, feel free to contact me via email or give me a call and I would love to talk about those options with you and help you find a home here in Music City.

I hope to hear from you soon!

It is a solid 7-8 right now. Metro Nashville and the surrounding areas like Clarksville are very fortunate. With the local tourist, military, and the gaining civilian job sector the only way to go is up right now. ... more

Have you spoken with a lender to find out your credit score? That will have a definite impact on your decision to purchase a home. No one can predict what will happen in one year with prices or interest rates. For more information, call me at 613-3318 to review your situation. ... more

Kevin Pellatiro answered:
The demand is not quite as great as the inventory in general right now, but some prices seem to be stabilizing. For instance, under $300,000:
There is slightly more demand than inventory showing (5.6 months of available units) but still a relative balance - especially when you factor in the available units not listed for sale publically - with almost 18 properties going under contract or finalizing sale each month since last August.

Which properties are the most attractive for you? And are you keeping a closer eye on the Gulch or central Downtown itself for your plans?

I have an investor that I work with closely. He will tell you that the least he has made on an investment is $22,000 ( and that includes the last 2 years). He would be more than happy to talk with you if you want.
As far as neighborhoods and areas.... I have seen a return on investments on just about all of middle TN. Franklin, Brentwood, Fairview, East Nashville, Hillsboro Village and the list goes on. Stay around the area you live and get the help of a solid RE agent (at least for the purchase side).

Hi Gregg,

I can't say that I have really been seeing a " shortage " of condo's on the market. I can say that in a couple of the hotter markets in Nashville Area 2 which is Green Hills, Belmont, 12th South.there were approx. 271 condo closings in a 90 day period and in Area 6 which is East Nashvill there were around 25. Compared to the condo inventory, that is not great, but they are selling. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Stephanie & James Crawford answered:
There are several options in the price range you've indicated - depending on how close you'd like to be to the campus. Here is a link showing the available units in 37212 and the surrounding zips:

As for value projections, it's hard to say in this market. I can tell you that Metro Nashville area values are down just 2.6% from the same time last year which is much more stable than the national average of over 11%. The Vandy/Belmont area has always been a desireable area. There is absolutely no reason to believe that will ever change.

I specialize in the condo market. You can learn about just about every development on my page below.
I'd love to opportunity to earn your business. Please let me know if i can help at all.

Maria Holland answered:
Absolutely not! Now is a great time to buy. Prices are not only down, but interest rates are at an historic low. Couple that with the $7500 tax credit and it is a situation for first time homebuyers. Your higher priced homes are the ones that will typically dive lower. Lower priced homes could go down slightly, but it will depend on the area. Areas like Antioch have been flooded with foreclosures; therefore, pushing prices of homes down further and further. Areas like Crieve Hall have remained relatively stable. People who are needing or very much wanting to move are reducing their prices in the negotiation process. Many homes have been on the market for a very long time, and homeowners are now more willing to take a lower priced, more realistic offer. I think the people who wait will be disappointed in the long run because I believe that interest rates are going to go up considerably thereby making housing less affordable.

I would love to help you find that first home. Check out my website at or give me a call at 615-289-6056. Hope to hear from you.

Because our system is somewhat limited, I broke out residential and condo activity:

1) Residential current listings (137) Avg sqft $184.12, Avg DOM 84
2) Residential sales pending (8) Avg sqft $138.86, Avg DOM 104
3) Residential sold YTD (211) Avg sqft. 180.91, Avg DOM 71
4) Residential sold 2007 (279) Avg sqft. $191.20, Avg DOM 53
5) Residential sold 2006 (337) Avg sqft. 181.02, Avg DOM 60

6) Condo current listings (281) Avg sqft. $294.70, Avg DOM 160
7) Condo sales pending (23) Avg sqft. 296.55, Avg DOM 152
8) Condo sales YTD (332) Avg sqft. $230.56, Avg DOM 59
9) Condo sold 2007 (716) Avg sqft. $226.06, Avg DOM 59
10)Condo sold 2006 (410) Avg sqft. $214.14, Avg DOM 34

While you can see that the quantity of sales decline is extreme, it is important to note that square footage values are holding or increasing in either category. I would say that the residential market is much more in tune with today's economic situation and finding a "good buy" here will appreciate at a moderate amount; and that the condos are very much overpriced, and developers/builders are going to have to make drastic cuts in order to other words, don't buy a condo!!!!!
