What Homeowners & Homebuyers Need to Know About Taxes
Wendy Thompson of the Wendy Thompson Lending Team joins me today to talk about tax appraisals. Unless you are in the downtown area, you have received your appraisal by now. If your taxes went up and you disagree with the appraisal, now is the time to make an informal request for a reassessment. Buyers should be aware of these new appraisals too, especially if they are under contract to purchase a home. To learn more, watch this short video.

What’s Been Happening in Our Memphis Market Lately?

Today I wanted to give a quick recap of our 2016 market and share the latest news from our 2017 market. In 2016, home sales actually found some stability compared to what they’d been since the market shifted in 2007. Foreclosures hit a 15-year low, home sale activity picked up, and home prices hit a record high. Home sales within the city limits actually accounted for 64% of the total homes that sold. To learn more about how our market did in 2016 and what’s been happening so far this year, watch my latest video.

I'm constantly asked when the best time to sell a house is. Springtime may be the best time, but winter is actually a close second. Why is this? In the winter, fewer sellers have their homes on the market, which means less inventory for buyers to choose from. You'll have much better odds at selling your home at your desired price. For all the reasons, watch this short video.
