It isn't a REO if it hasn't been foreclosed on. Have a local Realtor pull up the court records to see who the owner of date is. If may have had a 2nd loan on it and that bank bought it at the auction. marty ... more

Hello Trumpet,
Welcome back and thank you for serving our country in Iraq. Yes!! I encourage you to contact a mortgage broker or banker regarding a VA loan as there are many incentives offered with this type of loan over others. 0% down payment being one of them.
I suggest that you contact a few local lenders in your area to learn more about the VA loan vs. conventional as they are the experts and can advise you best.
Good luck to you!

Hi Mike,
What Stats/Trends are you referring to? If you want to have a discussion it would be helpful if you contacted an agent directly.

Average days on market for the area is 114 days. This time of year if you are priced within market value it should sell a little quicker. If you will send me the address, I can give you a more customized answer. See my ad in Homes and Land. I would love to aggressively market your home!

Best Regards

the UT parking permits allow tailgating as well several businesses in and around cumberland avenue. however, the private lots are subject to knoxville police department enforcements..this enforcement is sometimes enforced or looked away. i doubt any websites are available due to public drinking is against the law and a website would be an invitation. ... more

Hello Knoxseller,
I am a local Knoxville Realtor. All commission is negotiable. Do you know what your land is worth and how much you are looking to net yourself? There is no set amount for a commission. Be sensible and understanding. I'm sure your choice in a Realtor will be just fine and the two of you will come to terms that will be pleasing to both of you.

Bryce De Vincenzi answered:
Hello Deborah,

The answer varies on where you are located.

In Southern California, I would imagine that this type of upgrade helps the sale of the home.

Areas in other parts of the country that do not see year round sunshine, it might not make as big of a difference.

I will say that no matter what bells and whistles you might have on your home, what is selling homes right now is location and price. If your house is "fully loaded" but its $100,000 more than the last home that sold in your neighborhood, it might be sitting for a while.

If you are asking the question because you are thinking about installing these upgrades before selling the home, don't do it. You will not get a full return on your investment. Things like solar panels, pools, new kitchens etc, never bring in their entire investment.

Feel free to email me with any questions. Not sure where you are located, but i would be more than happy to advise you.

Karen Wisne answered:
Well, of course your Realtor can tell you. Most foreclosed homes are listed with a Realtor (through the bank), so your Buyers Agent will have access to them on the MLS. But another good place is the government website Look for the link on buying homes and you'll find some good information there. ... more

If you are looking for long term rental, then it would depend on the area of each, in Blount County being in the city limits is the best area for rental an high occupancy. Since Knoxville is so much larger an has so many more businesses, the west part of Knoxville is the most desirable. If you might be interested in overnight rentals, there are a lot of good deals on foreclosure cabins, I work with foreclosures all the time and have found several good deals for my clients. I am located in Townsend, our office just franchised with C-21 an I sale homes in Blount, Knox an Sevier counties. If you would like me to pull some listings an email them to you to review I would be more than happy to. My name is Teresa Moen my contact info is 865-405-2062 an my email is I think right now you would be good in either county because it is getting so tough to get loans closed and people are still worried about purchasing that more people are renting. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help. ... more

Julia Odom answered:
It varies (a lot). Could be as little as a month or as much as a year+. There's no easy way to know which agent will eventually get it. Your best bet is to have your own agent set up an automatic search that will notify you when it comes on the market. ... more
