Very nice home(not lakefront) sold at auction!!

Just wanted to update the readers about a home on 1.3 acres that slipped into foreclosure and sold at auction. The property located at 20 Aspen Circle just sold at the foreclosure auction for
$189,225.07. This lakewood property was purchased by another realtor who saw the value there and jumped on the property.

Actually this property was listed 2-3 different times with the first and second times when sales were slow. The owners had moved out of state and decided to rent out the house to someone who said they were going to purchase the house. However, the potential purchasers credit went south and they were unable to purchase. Here they were renting the home and now the owners wanted to start showing it again to other potential purchasers. Needless to say, the renters at that point were not motivated to let house be shown. This is a very good example (Lakewood owners) not to rent your house out to someone who says they will buy later. Later never came!

The current tax appraisal on the property is $202,900 and actual value by my calculations is
$225,000-$232,000. The house is a two story with 3450 sq feet living area and has an attached 2 car garage and detached 2 car garage.

This realtor got a real deal indeed! Should the current Lakewood owners read anything into this? Just do not rent your house out to potential buyer and be an out of town landlord.

Values are still great and demand high. I talked to a realtor in southern Florida who has referrals for me if I can find the lakefront properties for her clients.

Lurking, fishing and lunkers!!!!

I would encourage you Lakewood residents to click on the comments tab and tell all the readers about living at Lakewood. I especially want to hear about your fishing experiences. When you click on the comments tab and leave your comment, it will come to me first to approve before it hits the blog. The reason for this is weirdo's will post trash in the comments section. I really want to know what it is like living in the Lakewood Community. Also, there are lots of readers who also want to hear from you residents.

I took a rather extensive online e-PRO class that had forums for the students to enter in information helpful to the other students. Many of us were lurkers(just readers only). Why was I was afraid to post my comments? I believe it was because this was new territory for me.

On line blogs are new territory for many of you. Please post any information that will be informative to our readers. Not only are people in Dyersburg Tennessee reading this blog but people across the country are also reading. When someone in Florida gets on MSN search engine and types in Tennessee Lakefront properties, our blog comes up #1.

I am planning on visiting some of my lakewood friends in the morning and see if I can catch a lunker bass or catfish. If they are not biting, I know where there is a bream bed full of big bluegill.

Lot under contract and Florida people moving!!!

Just wanted to update my readers about a lot that I just put under a sales contract. My #4 lot pick- 1.83 acres on Oakridge is closing within 30 days from today. I will not be able to share the specifics until after closing.

Also, just an observation about Florida callers and Florida clients. The activity from the Florida folks has slowed down somewhat. I believe this is because the hurricanes have slowed down. I will make a prediction that lakefront activity from Florida customers will increase immediately following the next Florida hurricane. Hopefully this is a change in weather pattern and the hurricanes will significantly decrease in numbers and intensity.

If you are thinking of selling your home or lot in Lakewood, please call me to get the information on this blog. as you can see, there is not much for sale right now in Lakewood so your property would really stand out to our readers and potential buyers. E-mail me on my blackberry and I will get right back to you.
