What every buyer ought to know
Mortgage rates still low
Federal interest rates are expected to rise within the next year or so. When federal interest rates rise, so do mortgage rates. They fluctuate all the time. The most recent mortgage rate reported from a top lender is 3.65 for a 30 year conventional loan. Every 1% change in interest rate equals 10% in buying power.
Gentrification, change and growth
The Nashville market is all about discovering up-and-coming neighborhoods as well settling into established areas. Growth, neighborhood gentrification and overall change in the city is attracting people from all over the nation. Corporations are moving to Nashville and local businesses are expanding. Researchers and forecasters report as many as 100 people are moving to the Nashville and surrounding areas daily. Buyers are grasping at the chance to get in on the New Nashville.
Buyers do not pay commission
Sellers negotiate a commission structure that covers the cost of the buyer side of the transaction. The buyers agent is here to make sure the buyer is represented in the deal, help protect you and move the process forward.

I am a part of a network of high-producing agents who have access to inventory before it hits the market. I move fast, I'm connected and know what makes a good deal. Last year my brokerage, Parks, ranked #1 in Tennessee by Nashville Business Journal. There's a reason.
