Jo Shaner answered:
This is too vague of a question and a Realtor or an appraiser would have to evaluate just what the comps are. Too many times folks take for granted that just because a house is in the neighborhood -it's a comparable. So far from the truth. Plus many Real Estate sites do not furnish good, up to date, reliable data. ... more

By the way, I already have a realtor, however, we haven't had time to talk about it as we are closing on another house I bought.

Raleigh and Frayser are still great areas to live in. Just as in most cities some areas of all neighborhoods are not so diserable. Please let me know if you need more information on either of these areas. Thanks!

We have gotten a lot of inquireries lately about Lease/Options,
almost all from Buyers who think that it is the easy way to buy a house:
We tell them that it is NOT!
It is a pit, fraught with dangers.
There is no "boilerplate" contract for a L/O; you will have an Attorney draw up the contract.
It can be written any way you want it to; any way you agree to.
It can be dangerous for the Seller too, because it locks you into something that will have work, 2 to 5 years from now.
Probably better than a Shortsale for a desperate Seller, however.
Good luck and may God bless

You could always call a local police department, they should have that information or at least be able to give you a source for where to find that information online.

That depends! Is it a single home built in a pre-existing neighborhood or is it a home in a new subdivision. More information would be helpful. I'm assuming you can qualify for $120,000 so perhaps the seller would be willing to buy down the interest rate in order to reduce your monthly payments so you would be able to qualify. Feel free to call me. I expect there's a way to structure the transaction or at the least, provide you with a plan of action. I'm happy to answer any questions you have and provide you with better direction. Best of all, it's free advice! Feel free to call me! ... more

Condo Rents start out at $700 (this is basement bargain deal) to $1150. It all depends on the building and the unit. Some include all utilities, wi fi, parking, Pools, Exercise Facilities and secuirty for the Downtown area.

Midtown has more duplexes and older units that rent out much cheaper. Usually without any amenities.

You should probably look at a small to mid size bank for that. You will probably have the best luck with nothing bigger than First Tennessee Bank. Some banks will only lend on commercial in a certain footprint. ... more

Gerry Peak answered:
A great buyer agent asks the buyer the right questions. Then the agent listens. From a thorough understanding of the buyer's needs, goals, and dreams, the great agent develops a plan for guiding the buyer through the complex process of loan application, neighborhood selection, home touring, offer preparation, negotiation, inspections, loan underwriting, utility preparation, closing, and moving. First comes questions. Then comes listening. Then comes a plan and an experienced, steady hand that guides the buyer from dream to satisfying reality. ... more

Denise Richardson answered:
Renters typically do not check the condition of the property very well. Some landlords take advantage of this by delaying some really crucial repairs after the deposit and rent are paid. Maybe renters should consider doing a one day turn on of utilities in order to make sure every thing is functioning. If not you can ask that it be done before move in as a part of the lease agreement. This might get you out quickly if you have a landlord that is slow moving on crucial repairs. ... more
