I can run comps for you for properties active and sold, some people don't like pools because of the expense and risk.. but that's your personal choice.

Typically for an appraisor to value it as finished space not only does it have to be heated, but also it must be finished. I had a listing a couple of years ago with the same situation. The area was heated but not completed. It had concrete floors and unfinished drywall and the appraisor would not count it as space. The public viewed the space as unfinished as well. When selling a home, the opinion that truly matters is the public. How will they view your space? Will they look at it as expansion area or another finished area of your home. They will be the ultimate decision maker in deciding your home's value. Furthermore, if you do sell your home and then the appraisor won't valuate the space as finished, it may cause you a problem before closing. Put yourself in your buyer's shoes. How would you view the space if you were buying this home? Sometimes it is hard to be objective about your own home, but if you can remove your personal feelings and look at the space objectively, you should find your answer.
If you need help selling your home, give me a call.

If I understand your question. If repairs have to be done because of a home inspection ones the house is under contract you can give the buyer the option to take the money for the repairs. This credit would be given on the day of closing. All other closing cost like tax prorations,dock stamps, title transferes, attorney fees,commissions would be taken out of your proceeds, again on the day of closing.
Have a great Day

Hello Susanne,

Congratulations on your home purchase, and good luck on your contractor search. I do not know a contractor in East Nashville to recommend; but would like to pass on a couple of things that may be of help.

DO require references, and check them out. Lowest Price is not a recommenation--it may be a recipe for disaster.
DO insist on seeing their license (or at least confirm it on the state website). Ask for their License number, what classifications it intails. Go to If you have difficulty with the link, delete everything after commerce/ and try again. Follow onsite directions.
DO get more than one bid, and ask tough questions.

Good luck,

Fred Cope,
