Clarksville Real Estate Find Your Dream Home! Tue, 01 Oct 2019 13:16:49 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Clarksville Real Estate 32 32 How to Keep Cool in the Summer Without Spending Tons of Money Thu, 29 Aug 2019 00:00:55 +0000 Turn up the temperature a few degrees – If you turn up your thermostat a few degrees, you’re saving money on your electric bill. A thermostat on 70 degrees costs twice as much than a thermostat on 78 degrees. Turn the thermostat up when you’ll be out of the house for many hours.

Clean and/or replace your air conditioner filter monthly. A dirty air conditioning system causes blockage, therefore racking up your bill.

Turn on your ceiling fan. The fan only uses as much energy as a 100-Watt light bulb but makes the room so much cooler. When using box fans, turn them off when no one is in the room. They serve no purpose unless someone is in that room with the fan.

During the day, keep curtains drawn and windows closed to reduce the amount of sunlight allowed in the house or room. Keeping the windows closed can reduce cooling costs by 30 percent.

Computers, TVs, lights, and other electronics all create heat. If you turn these items off when not in use, it can save you money on your energy bill. (Nearly twice as much!)

What is BRRRR? Thu, 29 Aug 2019 00:00:30 +0000 BRRRR is an acronym some real estate investors use and it stands for Buy, Rehab, Rent, Refinance, and Repeat (BRRRR). Many investors have made a living using this strategy to accumulate and grow their portfolio. The process is simple in nature but there is a method that must be adhered to.

This post will just discuss the Buy portion of BRRRR.

Buy – When you have a buy and hold strategy for investing in rental properties there isn’t a great feedback mechanism to determine how well you may have done. You will get an appraisal on the property but those are disputed regularly as one party usually disagrees with the value. When you flip a house, you can immediately see what your profit or loss was after the sale. The goal of a BRRRR strategy is to pull all the money you put into a property out when you refinance. The key is to find a deal when you purchase.

Many investors have their specific number or formula they use to analyze their deals. A quick guide is to use a 70-75% guide in your formula. (After Repair Value X 0.7) – Repairs = Maximum Purchase Price.

Clarksville Real Estate Inc has the capability to make the real investment process a real turnkey operation in Clarksville, TN, and surrounding areas.

Benefit of Using a Realtor to Sell Your Home Wed, 28 Aug 2019 23:59:17 +0000 Benefits of Using a Realtor to Sell Your House #2 – Home Sells at Top Dollar

Realtors have the advantage of knowing the pulse of the market they operate in. Listing agents specialize in answering the question, “What is my Home Worth?” for their clients. Realtors will do a comparative market analysis to help their seller determine the correct listing price for their home.

We know that pricing is the key to getting your home sold at the right time for the correct price. If you list the home too high initially you may have missed the most opportune time to sell your house. When a home is overpriced an agent might just avoid bringing their buyer to that house altogether or use it as an example to sell another property that is correctly priced or a better value. If you list it too low then it will most likely sell quickly but you will take money out of your pocket.

We will treat your home like an asset you are trying to get top dollar for and not just your home you lived in. We have no emotional attachment to the home the ones trying to sell it may. Our goal is to find that balance between correctly pricing the home to coincide with the timeline the seller is looking for to sell their home. A Realtor can help this process go more smoothly and try and help you get top dollar for your home when selling.
