things to Stop the Sale of Your Chattanooga Home
If your home is not selling as quickly as you imagined, it could be because it has problems that are causing buyers to run in the opposite direction.  Our real estate agents are here with seven things to consider when you're trying to sell your home.

  1. Water/Mold Damage.
    These will show up during a home inspection, and buyers don't want to purchase a property that has leaky roofs or moldy walls. Whether the damage is in the basement, attic, laundry room, you should fix the problem and repair the damage before listing the property.

  2. Radon.
    Radon seeps through the slab. It is invisible and can cause serious health problems. Most homeowners don't realize they could have basements filled with radon. Installing a mitigation system and preventing the intrusion of this radioactive gas is an inexpensive and wise investment.

Determining Property Lines
Judge Judy has mediated many a dispute between neighbors who have quarreled over the location of property lines. Fortunately, determining accurate boundaries doesn't have to be that dramatic. Use these helpful methods to find the correct property lines of Chattanooga homes for sale.

  1. Check the Deed 
    All deeds include a legal description of a property's boundaries. This often takes the form of a metes and bounds survey, which delineates boundary lines by terminal points and angles. "Metes" are measurements between two points along a certain direction, while "bounds" refer to roads, trees or other landmarks providing visual markers. 

    Metes and bounds surveys are useful but approach with caution. They're sometimes difficult for a layperson to interpret, and depending on when the survey was completed, the landmarks may have changed or disappeared completely.
