Using Aerial Photography To Sell!

by The Peggy Graves Team

Aerial Photos give buyers a bird's eye view of your home and the surrounding landscape.  They show off the scenery of a large property and are great for homes on the water. Most buyers begin their home search online and the photos draw them in. That is why it is so important to get the best possible photos of your home and display them online.  If you are thinking of listing your home and feel that aerial photography would be to your benefit, give The Peggy Graves Team a call. We recommend this service to our clients who have homes with farms, acreage, water views or other unique features that can not be captured from a simple ground photo.

Below is an aerial photo of a home we currently have listed at 1697 N. Highland Ave in Jackson, TN. As you can see the photo really captures the beauty of the home and shows how private the location is. If you are interested in listing your home call The Peggy Graves Team today at 731-664-2342.

Make A Statement In Your Entry!

by The Peggy Graves Team

 Your foyer is the first thing your guests see when they enter your home. With some easy changes you can really make a great impression. Start by adding a large piece of furniture such as a bookshelf, antique dresser or console table. Add a lovely bowl or tray to store keys and mail. Finish with a stylish lamp, large piece of artwork and a scented candle. Don't forget to add a rug and seating area if your space is large enough, a stylish light fixture or chandelier and chose an inviting color that sets the tone in the rest of the home.

Existing Home Sales Solid in 2016

by The Peggy Graves Team

According to a report from RISMedia and National Association of REALTORS, existing home sales in 2016 were 5.45 million compared to 5.25 million in 2015 and 6.48 million in 2006. Making 2016 a good year for the housing market. Low mortgage rates and solid job creation made 2016 a good year for the housing market, however in December a slightly higher mortgage rates combined with low inventory levels in much of the U.S. stunted Decembers numbers. Lack of listings and slightly higher homes prices helped most of 2016 appear promising, however the surge in rates in early November caught some prospective buyers off guard and slowed their appetite and/or ability to buy as 2016 came to an end. Existing home sales in December fell 2.8%, according to NAR with a median price of $232,200. Decembers numbers may be low largely due to buyers making home purchases in November instead of December in order to lock in low mortgage rates. Decline in the amount of inventory coupled with home prices increasing faster than many peoples incomes may have also played a part. Call The Peggy Grave Team can help answer any questions you may have about the current real estate market in Jackson, TN as well as direct you towards a reputable lender.
