Friday's Fotos...     Yesterday was one of those rare, picture perfect days for this time of the year here in the middle Tennessee area. On the way out to a job in the Spring Hill, TN area, I once again eyeballed this old barn next to the defunct Saturn plant. Every time I would go by, I would look, study, and tell myself, "One of these days..." Yesterday was that day. Bright warm sun, cobalt blue skies, contrasting colors; what more could a shutter bug ask for?     I'm not sure whether it was the texture of the faded, peeling paint or the way the Virginia Creeper covered the silo, but to me, there was something alluring that kept beckoning me. I reckon the few shots I took were worth the chigger bites...

    It has been a while since I posted and I wanted to check in.  Hard to believe that it's almost the middle of June, but time flies when you're busy.  I have really been busy with buyers and sellers too while adding some designations so that I'm current on real estate trends and techniques to help my clients.   It has been a great Spring and I'm ready to launch into Summer (hard to tell we're not in the middle of Summer already from the temps)!  Don't forget if you live in the Spring Hill, TN area or are visiting to check out CityFest.     This event is scheduled for the 4th Saturday of each month and will be held at the UAW Union Hall starting at 6 p.m.  There will be food, fun, music and a free movie that begins at dark.  Let's enjoy some family fun this summer!   Look me, Ken Banks...

  Finally we are seeing glimmers of light that things are picking up. I know I am busier. Our Middle TN news media reports that Williamson County, where Franklin is located, is said to be #3 among the top 10 counties for job growth. Franklin and Brentwood are active areas just south of Nashville proper.  Columbia and Spring Hill, where I live and primarily work is just south of Franklin and Nashville. A lot of people choose to live here and commute north to work. Generally, the farther north from the AL line towards Nashville, the more real estate tends to be valued at.   At our company's Kick-off Meeting for the year, we were told that approximately 25% of realtors in TN retired their licenses since 2007.  That is when I committed to "full-time" after being "down-sized" from my previou...

  Today and yesterday, it has reached 60 degrees in my neighborhood between Columbia and Spring Hill, Tennessee.  It has been absolutely great to be able to go out and start sprucing things up a bit in the yard, cleaning out leaves that have collected lately and such.   Yesterday while I was out, there were even two little neighbor boys who pulled off their shirts and picked up the water hose.  Luckily their Dad stopped them just in time; I mean it was warm, but not  that warm!    This morning, as I drove to church, I met a gentleman before 9 a.m. driving his convertible - sans the top!  Guess we all are really liking this break between snows.  I mean, it was just last week that I posted a Wordless Wednesday photograph of the deer in the snow watching me as I drove to work.   The extend...

OK, it is the first cool snap of the year and you go to turn the heat on and you wait and wait and wait.  It does nothing and your first thought is that the system is broken.  So what should you do? Well if you only have gas heat and an electric water heater (like I do) the first thing you want to do is to go and take a look at the gas meter to see if it has been turned off!  I know, you are thinking that this only happens if you do not pay your bill.  Well, normally that it true, but it could have also been turned off by one of your neighbors kids....  Yep, it is the prank that never grows old unless you are on the receiving end.  If you know for sure the gas is on then call a qualified HVAC contractor! Looking at the gas meter: Your gas meter will most likely be on one side of your ho...

The Battle of Spring Hill - In 1864 battles were going on all around Franklin and Spring Hill. This historic marker is at the base of a hill on Kedron rd, that was once a place were a lot of soldiers fought and died. It would be nice to say they died for our freedom, but the ones who were fighting for states rights lost.  This posting and the contents written here are the intellectual property and opinions of Elizabeth Payne of Benchmark Realty.

GM is putting 483 UAW union workers back to work in Spring Hill soon, as well as investing $483 million dollars in the plant (it's the most modern they have already). The plant will be used to build the next generation of 4 cylinder engines used in small SUV's and cars. General Motors idled the vehicle assembly line in Spring Hill in November 2008 after deciding to transfer production of the Chevrolet Traverse to a plant in Lansing, Mich. The move came just two years after GM spent $700 million retooling the former Saturn plant, which opened in 1990, so that it would be capable of producing a wide array of GM vehicles It seems like GM has found a lot of ways to waste taxpayer money, remember we still own 61 percent of the new company as part of the bailout agreement by the Obama adminis...

The Spring Hill Mayor and Board of Aldermen voted to not increase property taxes this year. The Mayor, Michael Dinwiddie has recommended a 20 percent increase over the current tax. It is encouraging that the aldermen used better judgement and decided that increasing the tax burden on the residents during a recession wasn't something that the public wanted.  The current city property tax for Spring Hill equates to $150 per year for every $100,000 of property value, even though they make it look very complicated with the computations they use. For many years Spring Hill didn't have a city tax, and depended on fees charged to home builders to fund the city government. Now with new home construction moving at a very slow pace, the city has started to charge a tax to home owners. I think tha...

I have included a summary in my report for the past 15+ years, or ever since I started inspecting homes.  Why do I include a summary?  I guess the main reason is that if as a buyer I needed an inspection I would want to have a summary in my report.  As a buyer I would want to know the high points or the problems that were found during the inspection without sifting through pages and pages of a report.  I have always treated my clients like I would want to be treated, this could be why I have been successful in my business.  I'm trying to make the process as easy as it can be for my client, lord only knows that their head is spinning in all directions during the home buying process. Some might argue that most folks will only read the summary. This is kind of like leading a horse to water...

Spring Hill, TN  Business Owners - Publix Can Teach You A Lesson                                                                                                                                          As the owner of a home staging company I try to emulate what the bigger, more successful companies like Borders, Starbucks, and Publix do. Why re-invent the wheel, right? They are successful for a certain reason - they service their client and don't just sell product, they give them an experience. I will go out of my way to do business with these companies. Who cares if I pay more? To me, it is worth it. In my small town of Spring Hill, TN the main grocery stores are Publix and Kroger. Kroger has two locations, one extremely close by and the other just a couple miles up the road. The Krog...
