End Of January Open Houses
by TJ Anderson
Shopping for the biggest investment most of us will ever make can be a little stressful, especially in a busy market like Middle Tennessee’s. One of the things I put a lot of energy toward as an agent is making the process less stressful, more fun, by not only arming my clients with all the helpful information they’ll need, but having their back when they need help or guidance. It’s important to me that the folks I work with know they have an advocate.
Another thing I encourage, whether you’re working with us or not, is exploring Open Houses to help you get a sense of what’s out there, what fits into your budget, what areas fit you best and what areas aren’t as perfect a fit as you might have initially thought. Beyond that, I think Open Houses can be fun — they can be a low-pressure way to see if you fall in love with a house in person that you’ve had your eye on online.
Thinking of adding some Open Houses to your agenda this weekend? Here’s a little help:
And since I always like to share a few Open House picks along with this weekly post, here are a few homes open this weekend that caught my eye for various reasons:
Charming and affordable in Nashville
7137 Riverfront Dr., Nashville, TN
For folks who are searching for a first home with room to grow, this one’s a great option, with 4 beds, 2 1/2 baths and more than 2,200 square feet. Walking into a two-story living space with a fireplace isn’t a bad hello, and with a spacious kitchen, spacious master and spacious master bath, you’re certainly not wanting for much as you continue through. Open Saturday 2 to 4 p.m.
Spacious in Spring Hill
1785 Witt Way Dr. #154, Spring Hill, TN
You get a ton of space for the money with this Spring Hill home — 5 beds, 5 baths and nearly 4,500 square feet of living. You also get a ton of eye-grabbing detail, from the rubbed mortar exterior to coffered ceilings, gorgeous archways and a stunning kitchen. Open Saturday noon to 4 p.m.
On green space in Arrington
1505 Registry Row, Lot 211, Arrington, TN
You can’t miss the draw of the interior in this 4-bed, 3 1/2-bath Arrington home — upscale and eye-grabbing design follows through in every room, from sleek shower tiles to beamed ceilings to statement-making light fixtures. Added bonus, here, is that you walk out of the basement onto more than four acres of green space. Open Saturday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Any of these on your to-visit list? Thinking about something totally different? If you need some help on your house hunt, let me know — I’d love to find you the perfect home.
