Murfreesboro Electric Department wants to make sure you know how to conserve cash by conserving power.

Organized in 1939 as a municipal, customer-owned utility, Murfreesboro Electric Department is one of 159 members and distributors of power from the Tennessee Valley Authority.

While Murfreesboro Electric Department’s website looks like something out of the late ‘90s, its front page features a link to “Energy Saving Tips,” which takes one to EnergyRight.com , a program provided by TVA to help consumers learn about how to save Watts . . . and dollars.

Do you have $3,500,000 to spend on real estate?  If so, you might be interested in 307 Double Springs Road here in Murfreesboro, according to NashvilleRealEstateLink.com , the most expensive MLS listing in the Boro.

Including three properties on fifteen acres on what is described as “potential commercial corner land with major road frontage [emphasis removed],” the location presently is a “money making duplex property [emphasis removed].”

Located on both John Bragg and Double Springs Roads, this 2.56 acre plot of land includes a house and carport, and plenty of space to build or use for just about anything.

The house itself was built in 1957, contains 4,504 square feet (although it looks considerably cozier from the street), and features a vaulted roof.

Estimated annual taxes for the house are $1,526.

More information is available at NashvilleRealEstateLink.com by searching for listing #1181447.

An unexpected super surge in sales in March 2010 has many of us in the industry, and many buyers and sellers jumping for joy. As consumer confidence continues to rise, buyers and sellers continue to become more adapted to the current market, and real estate professionals continue to exude professionalism in our continually correcting market, real estate sales are abounding in a positive and promising way.

According to Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, it is positively promising to see an expansive home sales rebound in nearly every corner of America. This rebound has two resounding trends: “Sales have been above year-ago levels for nine straight months, and inventory has trended down from year-ago levels for 20 months running,” he said. “The home buyer tax credit has been a resounding success as these underlying trends point to a broad stabilization in home prices. This is preserving perhaps $1 trillion in largely middle class housing wealth that may have been wiped out without the housing stimulus measure.”

This spring time sales surge has birds singing in the Real Estate industry, but behind the sunshine there is a cloud looming. What happens after the tax credit ends? According to NAR Chief Economist Yun:

“With home values stabilizing, a revival in home buying confidence will likely help the housing market get back on its feet even as the tax credit impact disappears,” Yun said.

With any luck, this statement will resonate to be true, and every home owner in even the farthest reaching corners of America will breathe a heavy sigh of relief. When looking at each region of America, the correction is resoundingly positive and numbers across the board have increased, even if only nominally. Here in the South, existing-home sales showed an increase of 7.1% for an annual level of 1.97 million in March 2010 and are 13.9% higher than in 2009. The median home value was $154,800, up 5.2% from March 2009.

With 4 days left to get contracted and benefit from the Home Buyer Tax Credit, I am gearing up for a busy week. If anyone needs help buying or selling, or just needs some positive words of wisdom about real estate…feel free to call me:)

Happy House Hunting!!!

As the tax credit winds down, we are seeing many people who have not yet committed to a property scrambling to get in under the First Time Home Buyer’s Tax Credit deadline. The tax credit is part of the Worker, Homeownership, Business Assistance Act of 2009.

As it stands, the tax credit of $8000 for 1st time home buyers, and $6500 for existing home owners who meet certain guidelines, is set to end on April 30, 2010. In order to receive the credit, there must be a binding contract in place on a property by April 30, and it must be closed on or before June 30.

In order to qualify, a “first time home buyer” must be a person who has never owned a home OR who hasn’t had an interest in a principal residence in the last 3 years, the home that is being purchased must be the purchaser’s principal residence, and there are certain income guidelines that must be met.

A survey of more than 1,500 sales agents  by Campbell/Inside Mortgage Finance found a record 48.2 percent of home purchases were first-time home buyers in March. This is an almost 2% increase of over even last October (46.9%), when the original Tax Credit incentive was set to expire in November 2009. This recent almost 50% share of market activity by first time home buyers sets a record. And it’s a record that will trickle up to affect the other price points, markets, and demographics that comprise the modern Real Estate landscape.

The Extension and Expansion of the Tax Credit:

In November of 2009 the Tax Credit was extended, and expanded to encompass and benefit a broader range of home buyers and owners…

In order for a purchaser to qualify for the expanded tax credit designed for  home owners who are selling in the current marketplace, there are also income guidelines, and the home being sold must have been consecutively used for 5 of the last 8 years as the seller’s primary residence.

This expanded aspect of the tax credit will benefit those whose home may be being purchased by the first time home owners,  those who are moving move up, as well as those who may be downsizing. Essentially, if a person has had a significant amount of time in their current home, there is tremendous potential to not only make a profit on the sell, but also get that added incentive, thus creating a balanced and thriving market in varied price points, and driving more money into the economy. It’s a win/win:)

With 10 days left and counting, I have seen an increase in showings, calls, and activity across the board. Looks like I’m not the only procrastinator I know. LOL! The beauty of procrastination in this case is that the winding down of the tax credit in conjunction with the Spring boost in sales, is making for an uplifting and promising selling season! With consumer confidence raised, and happy buyers and sellers, we are currently looking at a correcting market on the upswing.
