Market Report Hendersonville Tn 37075. Understanding the difference between "listing prices" (what sellers are asking for) and "sold prices" (what buyers are willing to pay). By comparing pricing trends, you'll have a good idea of where the market is heading. The median listing and sold property prices are calculated based on the market activity each month. Review the inventory and health of the market by looking at the number of sold and listed properties. To understand if the market inventory is growing or shrinking, compare the number of sold properties to new listings. If inventory is growing, the market could be trending toward a buyer's market. If inventory is shrinking, then it could be a seller's market. SEARCH HOMES NOW    i   Active  508 Properties Found   Square Feet Bedrooms...

October 2011 Market Update Despite some pessimism pertaining to the global and domestic economies, the U.S. housing sector continues to show promising signs of stability and growth. Low levels of new home construction and gaining sales volume fueled by an inventory of affordable housing since Richard Nixon was president have reduced the number of homes on the market. This means home prices may begin to appreciate again.While there are many factors that can be barriers to buying a home, such as the tightening of mortgage lending rules by banks, consumer confidence in the job market is among one of the top obstacles to home ownership. In the 2011 Housing Pulse Survey conducted by the National Association of Realtors, 80% of respondents cited job security as their primary concern when deci...

Since affordable pricing tops the list of motivation and criteria for buying a home, it is no surprise that many first-time home buyers purchase distressed properties, which can be up to 30% below market value. Cost-conscious buyers are the most interested in distressed properties, but it is important for them to take into consideration the additional costs and expenses related to damage or neglect that occurred during the foreclosure process. On average, distressed property prices for first-time home buyers are $185,971 with a median of $153,000.Another consideration for buyers is the transaction time. Short sales and foreclosures typically take considerably longer to close because buyers deal with institutions rather than individual sellers. Yet buyers who are patient can benefit by p...

Nashville Home Inspection - Ugly Bug Alert.   Please look at the picture below.  Ever see one of these bugs around your home?  What is it and why is it there? HINT:  It looks like a cross between a cricket and a spider.  Now that can be ugly. ANSWER:  That's it!  It's a spider-cricket!  And boy is it ugly.  Some people refer to them as cave-bugs, apparantly because they are common in caves.  So how did it ever get started?  Do you think a spider and cricket got together and, wait, let's not even go there.  Suffice it to say they are common in damp and dark places, like caves.  Notice the Romex cable next to it.  That cable is about 1/2" in width, so you can imagine how large this spider-cricket is.  And that grey stuff is concrete block commonly used to form a residential foundation.  T...

Don't let you home in Hendersonville go into Foreclosure! Consider a short sale. If you are concerned that your house may go into foreclosure and you have not been able to qualify for or complete a loan assistance program, a short sale is an option to consider. If you want to sell your house but it’s worth less than the amount remaining on the mortgage, a short sale may allow you to sell your house and settle your mortgage debt. By completing a short sale rather than allowing your house to go through foreclosure, you avoid eviction and your house will not be sold at a public sale or auction. Plus, depending on your circumstances, you could qualify for financial assistance to help with relocation costs. To get started with a short sale, call us today at 615-504-1911. Or visit us by click...

Question:  How much water or moisture in the crawl space is too much?  For instance, is the moisture indicated by the picture below too much? ANSWER:  Yes!  When the mushrooms start growing in the crawl space, that has to be too much moisture.  I am not aware of any numerical metric to declare a crawl space too wet or not, but this has to be over the limit.  You can also see the very wet condition of the soil, and unfortunately, you can clearly see the wet soil, which should be covered by the moisture barrier. Surely, despite all our best efforts, some moisture will still make its way into the crawl space.  But there are things we can and should do to minimize the issue.  HABITEC Home and Building Inspections, LLC, encourages Clients to take every possible step to prevent moisture from ...

Nashville Home Inspection - House Fire Caused by Tree Hitting a Power Line.  Recently it was reported in the linked article above from The Tennessean that a house fire was caused by a tree hitting a power line.  This is a scenario that is all too common yet easily avoided.  Look at the picture below. Unfortunately some people think it looks good when vegetation encroaches on power lines or a building.  However, from a Home or Building Inspector's perspective, there is never a good time for a building or component of a building, like a power line, to share space with vegetation.  Even without the fire, vegetation is a common source of mechanical damage to buildings and components such as power lines.  There are different standards for how far vegetation should be allowed to exist with re...

Nashville Home Inspector - Service Conductor Intrusion - What's Wrong With this Picture? 3-22-11 HINT:  Electrical power and vegetation should not share the same space. ANSWER:  It is seldom a good idea that vegetation and power lines share the same space.  This vine grew up from below and seriously encroached on the electrical power mask.  Movement of the vine can damage the insulation on the wires and make electrocution and serious power malfunctions a possibility.  See the insulation that has worn away below. This should never have been allowed to happen, and getting the vine out of the wires is no easy, or amateur, job.  This is a classic example of deferred maintenance.  Below is a view of how this got started. HABITEC recommends a minimum of 18" of space between vegetation and any...

Building Equity in Your Home in Hendersonville Tn 37075. Below is an Amortization Schedule showing a loan for a $200,000 Home purchased at 4.75% interest. The fastest way to build equity in your home is by using your amortization schedule to it's fullest advantage. If you make your regular house payment + the principle payment for the following month = $9,433.40 savings in interest in 1 year. Talk about the smart way to refinance your home without the cost. Attacking your principle in this way reduces your PMI = reduction in your house payment. The first 2 years I done this I received money back from my escrow account.......which I also applied to my principle. If you attack your mortgage this way you can cut your 30 year mortgage nearly in half without refinancing. Think of all the mon...
