Here is a note from Paula to keep me up to date with her progress with selling her listings and helping buyers find homes:

"This week’s activities:

-Finalized an offer on my Franklin listing in Founders Point 

-Finalized an offer on downtown condo at Icon

-Showing homes on Saturday in West Nashville $250’s

-Showing on Sunday in Franklin $300’s"

Both will be listed soon (125K, 115K) Her other investor just had an offer accepted.

Mark, as part of his education for the Nashville market, attended WCAR lunch on Tuesday with guest speak Dr. Lawerence (chief economist NAR).

He completed Realtracs training on Wednesday. On Thursday I spent 7 hours driving his clients from Arizona around 6 properties in White Creek, Lebanon, Gallatin, Goodlettsville and Mt. Juliet.

He will be showing same clients more properties (suitable for donkeys!) next week. :)

This is a change for Mark as he has relocated from Ireland where he was no stranger to real estate, having owned his own RE/MAX agency in Dublin. He decided to move to Nashville and join the #1 team with RE/AX Elite...The Ashton Real Estate Group!

Great week for Bradley Barrett. Two Accepted contracts this week. One in Nashville for just under $335,000. The other is for just under $100,000. Both are set to close the second week of September. Looks like he will have two more contracts written up in the next two weeks, both in the mid $200's.

Looks like the Nashville real estate market is still keep The Ashton Real estate Group of RE/MAX Elite busy. The turmoil in the stock market may actually help keep the mortgage rates low to try and keep the interest in buying homes in Nashville going.

It seems some condos and homes are having some issues with selling, but as usual, the most attractively priced homes and ones that are in good locations and are well maintained are selling first.
