So you're itching to get started shopping Chattanooga homes for sale to become a homeowner, but you'll need a mortgage loan to realize that goal. Given that fact, you'll certainly want to get your credit report in shape to ensure that you can get approved for that loan – and that you can get the best possible interest rate on it when you do. So how does an aspiring homeowner go about raising their credit score? Here are tips that can help:
Check your credit report for errors
Your credit reports are documents that detail your track record with credit, outlining factors that include how much debt you're holding in relation to your income and how responsible you have been in paying off that debt. There will be three major reports detailing your credit history, held by three major credit bureaus; Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax. While these bureaus know their business, they rely on information collected from your creditors to compile their reports, and errors are fairly common. For that reason, getting copies of your reports from all three companies and examining them for errors is an important first step if you're working to raise your credit score. If any of your reports do contain errors, contacting the credit bureaus to get them corrected is your next step.

It's not just professionals who are in on the game, but youth and adult athletes of all skill levels. With such great interest, a fresh idea was needed to end schedule conflicts and maintenance issues.
The Summit of Softball is the solution that's enriched the community even further.
The eight fields have been lauded by church groups, clubs, senior leagues, and more. The fields accommodate both fast- and slow-pitch softball, kickball, and baseball. Plus, the whole complex is ADA-compliant, allowing people with mobility limitations and other concerns to enjoy.
And it's not just fields – not by a long shot. There are tons of other amenities.
For example, you can make use of practice areas, facilities for coaches and umpires, offices fully equipped with computers and Wi-Fi, record keeping and media booths, and of course, the bleachers. They're beautifully shaded so spectators get the full experience in all weather.
You don't have to be playing a game to enjoy, either. Visitors have the opportunity to relax in a hospitality room or in the picnic areas with manicured grass and shaded seating. You can simply stretch your legs on the walking track or go see the pedestrian plaza.
The Summit of Softball is open daily and hosts a full roster of scheduled games. It welcomes the public from spring through fall. Ooltewah residents are just down the street from the Summit, which you can find at 8646 Apison Pike, Ooltewah, TN 37363.
Even if softball isn't your game, you'll find plenty of amenities that make Ooltewah a unique and attractive place to live.

Selling your home is quite a milestone. While most homeowners devote plenty of time and energy to repainting, remodeling, and making sure the inside is clean and cozy, some sellers overlook one of the most important areas of the home: the exterior.

Whether you're buying or selling a home, the neighborhood where that home is located should always be one of the most important considerations. A strong school district, attractions, parks, shopping, and employment options nearby can all make a neighborhood a more desirable place to call home. When a neighborhood becomes more attractive to a wide range of potential residents, real estate values in the area tend to go up. Museums, in particular, can help add significant value to nearby properties, and the Hunter Museum of American Art in Chattanooga is a great example of the concept in action. Our REALTORS® have more on how museums add value to neighborhoods, and what you can expect at Chattanooga's Hunter Museum.
When the world-famous Guggenheim Museum opened in Bilbao, Spain in 1997, the city was well-known, but not yet an iconic international destination for the arts. The museum quickly changed that, turning Bilbao into one of the hottest arts and culture destinations in the world, which lead to a massive increase in real estate values. This effect can be seen to varying extents whenever a popular museum opens, proving that museums can add value to a neighborhood in a variety of different ways.

Even a brief look at Chattanooga homes for sale reveals one of the biggest attractions in our city – the great outdoors. It's a rare house in Chattanooga that's more than a stone's throw from a lake, stream, bike path or hiking trail. One of the best places to explore in the area is Lula Lake Land Trust, which sits less than 20 minutes from the heart of Downtown Chattanooga.
Yes, it's summertime in Chattanooga, which means it's prime time to get out there and experience the outdoors. Our REALTORS® get asked all the time what it is that makes Chattanooga a special place to live, and there are a lot of ways to answer that question, but our city's natural resources rank at the top of the list. To understand why we love living in Chattanooga, you need to look no farther than Lookout Mountain.
Overlooking Chattanooga just minutes from Downtown, Lookout Mountain offers expansive, panoramic views across the Tennessee River, the city of Chattanooga, and the rolling mountains beyond. Lookout Mountain is home to Lookout Mountain Flight Park and Resort.
The first and biggest hurdle when looking to buy one of the many Chattanooga homes for sale is coming up with the down payment. The minimum down payment that you can expect to make is 3 percent which means that you'd have to come up with $3,000 on a $100,000 home purchase. However, to avoid mortgage insurance, you would need a down payment of 20 percent. That's $20,000 on a $100,000 home.
Don't let these numbers scare you from buying that dream home. Here are five tips from our REALTORS® that can help you save for that down payment by showing your money who's boss.

There are lots of important decisions to be made when selling your home.
Our REALTORS® can help you with almost all of them, but some come down to your tastes and goals. For example: What should you leave behind and what should you take along when you move?
The less you drag along, the more convenient moving is. On the other hand, buyers don't necessarily expect you to leave much, but some things are traditionally left behind as a courtesy.
Let's look at the unwritten rules.
Chattanooga homes for sale can go fast. It's tempting to get your listing out there as soon as you can so you can enjoy the benefits of these great market conditions.
Many sellers have very specific timeframes and are strongly motivated to move forward. Still, it's crucial to protect your interests at every step in the process.
A pre-listing inspection is one optional step that really pays off. It will help you avoid oversights that can lead to pricey problems down the road or even derail a sale.

Plenty of big names have gotten their start in Chattanooga before taking their act national on the big stages in Nashville. One of the reasons this happens so frequently is thanks to Chattanooga's culture of music festivals. Open-air musical performances are always happening somewhere!

One of the things our REALTORS® love the most about Chattanooga, TN is that it's one of the best cities in America to pursue an active, adventurous lifestyle. Surrounded by rugged mountains and sandstone cliffs, Chattanooga is gaining a reputation as America's new rock climbing capital.
Unfortunately, most of us simply don't have the time to take off on mountain adventures every day (much as we might like to).

If you're like most parents, access to good schools is near the top of your list of priorities for your new home... if not at the very top. But other than asking your real estate agent, who may or may not have children of their own, how do you find a good school for your children?
Here are a few tips to help you find the school of your family's dreams to go with your dream home.
When you decide to sell your home, serious thought and planning must come into play. Something you'll need to determine is if you will hire a professional real estate agent to help in the sale of your home or attempt to sell it yourself. Many homeowners will opt for a FSBO (For Sale By Owner) because they want to save the money they would typically pay for an agent's real estate commission. However, did you know according to the National Association of REALTORS®, less than 10 percent of FSBOs actually sell?
Our REALTORS® are seasoned real estate professionals and know the ins and outs of successfully completing the sale of Chattanooga homes for sale. While you may think selling your home without the help of a professional may save real estate commission, FSBOs come with many risks. That's why we are sharing Five Reasons Why Homes for Sale by Owner Fail.
