Real Estate Blog

Its no secret that the Nashville real estate market is on fire. With the good sometimes comes the bad. If you are an agent working with a buyer or if you are a buyer winging it on your own considering new construction, please thoroughly research the builder/developer in question.

We have seen an influx of new builders/developers in the market and some are in over their head. Don’t rely on a high-octane agent’s sales pitch who are sometimes not forthright in their relationship with the builder/developer. A lack of investigation could cost buyers and agents lots of money, time and heartache.
