This Month in Real EstateSeptember 2010 ............................................................................................................................................... Market Update The housing market was off to a rocky start as the second half of the year began. Much of the volatility, however, was anticipated and attributed to the now-expired tax credit. Despite softened sales this last month, home prices continued to gain -  thanks in part to record low jumbo loan rates, which are fueling more interest and activities in the higher end of the market. Meanwhile, the economy still has a lot of ground to cover before achieving its full, sustainable recovery. Consumers, while remaining on the cautious side, have increased their spending, which is supported by a gradual im...

Home Repairs That Pay. Thinking of selling your home in Hendersonville Tennessee? It would sure be nice to know which home improvements would pay off when it came time to sell your house, especially in a down economy. Here are some of the best projects you can undertake that will recoup the majority of your cost. 1. Siding Replacement (foam backed or fiber cement vinyl). With the current downturn of the economy, home buyers aren''t exactly thrilled with all the extras regardless that these improvements will help lower utility and repair bills. Replacing current siding with fiber cement nets an amazing 87% ROI, although it has lost value from 2007. You may still recoup as much as 80% of your cost if you would rather use a vinyl product that is foam backed instead.2. Window Replacement (w...

Buying a home is always a challenge. Buying a foreclosed home presents unique challenges, however.

Nashville boating opportunities This is a repost of a blog by Julie Mcleland.  Have you considered boating in Nashville? Many people are unaware of the growing boating society in Nashville, TN.  Lake Old Hickory is directly linked to downtown Nashville through only one easy lock. Once on the Cumberland River, it is only a short trip to downtown Nashville. Metro parks have a dock on the river right beside the train depot where the Music City Star brings commuters and tourists. All slips have power and may be reserved for up to 5 days at a time. The dock is gated and monitored by metro parks. The slips are walking distance to the busy area of 2nd street and Broadway. The Frist museum is only blocks away as is the always delicious Mike's Ice Cream Shop.  If you would like a home on the wat...
