New listing at Lakewood with over 300' of main lake frontage

Just listed a beautiful home on 2.3 acres nestled in the woods and on the main lake. This Dyersburg area lakefront home is in a very private setting with a long winding paved driveway.

Owner has put on a new roof, put down new duroceramic tile in wet areas(main level), repainted everything, rebuilt a sun porch from top to bottom, re-stained the entire outside of house and many many sq feet of deck.

We have priced this home to sell fast!

1/15/10 Update: Owners just told me the hardwood flooring man is coming the week on the 25th(January) to install new handscrapped dark oak wide planks in the living room and master bedroom. This will complete the replacing of the entire first floor flooring.

Dyersburg's Lakewood Getting Back to Normal

Over the last several months, there have been many foreclosures in the Dyersburg area including a few in Lakewood.

Personally, I receive many of these foreclosures to sell for the asset companies and I am seeing a slowdown in foreclosures especially in the Lakewood community.

I know many of you Lakewood residents have been apprehensive about foreclosures in your neighborhood. In my opinion, we are near the end of foreclosures especially in Lakewood. Lakewood will soon be back to normal with prices back up(now at 2006 levels) so do not despair if you live in Lakewood because things are turning around.

Dyersburg Foreclosure in Lakewood

A couple of days ago I got a call from the listing agent for 38 Elm Lane. I had a client interested in this property but they got two offers on it before we could get there.

They accepted one of the offers and all the other parties went somewhere else. Now, the accepted offer has collapsed and owner so motivated to sell that they have agreed to fix the plumbing leaks in the basement and repair the sheetrock damage resulting from the leaks.

Not only are they doing this but they also replaced the electrical service that was damaged by a storm.

The original price was $160,000 (as is) but now the property has been reduced to $142,500 and major repairs completed or being completed right now. This is a 4 bedroom 3 bath home with over 4000' of living area and has lots of lake frontage.

In my opinion, this is a fantastic buy and I would be happy to assist you with this purchase. I bet this can be purchased for somewhere around $130,000.

Possible foreclosure coming in Lakewood

A couple of days ago I was asked to complete a brokers price opinion on a house(on the water)in Lakewood near Dyersburg.

This home is one of the finest in Lakewood and this could become a foreclosure. If that happens, I should get that listing. This home is very nice and the price range of value is somewhere around $400,000.

In the mean time, if you are looking for a Tennessee lakefront home, please click on the link over on the right side of this blog. That link will take you to every current listing in West Tennessee's Lakewood subdivision.

I understand the foreclosure house in my last post here has sold. I will get the sales price as soon as it is available.

Chicago family looking to relocate to Lakewood near Dyersburg,Tn.

A few days ago, I spent the whole day with a family from Chicago. Their daughter is going to college near St. Louis and they want to be within 2-3 hours of her.

I got a call from Ed about 3 weeks ago and he told me he was watching our video about Lakewood(a button for that is located over on the right side of Lakewood blog).

Ed told me he really liked what he was watching and he and his wife decided that they want to retire to Lakewood and live "on the water's edge".

We looked at several homes and they really liked one but they told me to keep my eyes open for others that might be just what they are looking for.

Here is their perfect retirement home at Lakewood:

1. one level
2. walk out basement
3. preferable brick but would consider others
4.on the water(a must)
5. a split floor plan where mother in law could stay with them
6. a dock a real plus
7. 2000-3000 heated and cooled living area
8. no close neighbors(semi secluded)
9. on one of the two biggest lakes
10. available by September 1st

If you live in Lakewood and would consider selling your home to Ed and his wife, please give me a call.

Clients want "lakefront" in Lakewood(near Dyersburg,Tn)

I showed a family a few homes in Lakewood on New Year's eve. They really wanted to find a one level with lots of water frontage.

Two of the homes we looked at were multi-story.

This family is empty nesters so can downsize some from the house they own now in Wisconsin.

If you are living in Lakewood and are considering selling your home, please let me know and I will show the home to this couple. The wife has an illness which requires her to move down here to warmer temperatures.
