Nashville New Homes: A new home or a puppy? Which is least expensive?

Back in February, I returned from a mission trip in Honduras to find out we were getting a puppy.  Here is Ruby, our new “Blue Doberman” at 6 weeks old.  (Notice she has floppy ears)

For those that are keeping up with the news regarding housing, things are really looking up for a change!   And the word is getting out too.  Read on…. http://money.usnews.com/money/blogs/flowchart/2011/03/28/one-sign-the-housing-bust-could-end-soon

Back to Ruby.  She is now 12 weeks old.  And her ears are now different.  (I always thought a Doberman came with pointed ears until now.)

To my point. 

We got Ruby on February 13.   She has now had her ears “clipped”  (which I still think is mean) and various other puppy charges,  and the responsibility of pet ownership has already set in.  And it adds up.

If someone bought a new home on February 13th, the first payment has still not come due.  And when it does, with today’s historically low interest rates, that payment will not break your budget.  After all, everyone has to live somewhere…why not in your own place?

FACT:  You can purchase a new home, and spend less cash than purchasing a puppy.

Here is a great example combining the purchase of a new home – and cash flow management. 

This brand new home in Rivendell Woods of Cane Ridge is all ready to be your next home, especially if you already have a puppy.  The back yard is already fenced in!  At 156,990, just bring your furniture and food.  Even the window blinds and all kitchen appliances are included.

What cash flow?  Using THDA’s “Great Start” program (www.thda.org) through Ole South Financial, you can move in this new home with ZERO cash out of pocket.   And your first payment will not be due until July, if you want to plan it that way!  Right now, you can own a brand new home in Nashville for less than $750/month, including taxes and HOA!

We’ve got a great selection of traditional homes and townhomes all over Middle Tennessee.  From 89,990 to 299,990, you are certain to find the perfect home for your needs.  And one that your puppy will like too! 

Call me anytime and let’s explore your many options!  If I cannot answer, please leave a message.  I’ll probably be taking Ruby out to pee!

Nashville New Homes: Welcome Fat Tuesday!

What does Fat Tuesday, Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools, and Ford Motor Company have in common?  The answer:  GREAT NEWS!

Nashville has been named a “Ford Next Generation Learning Hub.”  There are only seven recipients of this designation in the entire country.  Metropolitan Nashville was chosen and recognized for its progress in the transformation of area High Schools with the Academies of Nashville initiatives.  Read more of this great news here:

You can feel the commitment that Metropolitan Nashville is making to education just by visiting the new facilities that it continues to build.  If you haven’t seen the new Cane Ridge High School, you should drop by for a visit.  Until then, check out this video!

Last Friday, I was honored to speak to the Construction Career Academy students of Cane Ridge High School.  We had a great time that day preparing for upcoming  job-shadowing session they will participate in with local business professionals.  Earlier this year, Ole South hosted a “construction-site visit” with many of these students at our Villas at Rivendell Woods.

 

Fat Tuesday also means Spring is just around the corner!  Green grass growing, trees budding, flowers blooming, and birds singing are just a few of the sights and sounds that Spring will bring.   There is no better place to experience Spring than from your very own private verandah at The Villas at Rivendell Woods, located in the rolling hills of Cane Ridge in southeastern Davidson County.   Call 615.731.1968 for information.

There are two new exciting new floorplans featuring these private balconies, accessed only from the Owner’s Suites.  Experience the sizzle of Bourbon Street, or the flair of Key West…. right here in Nashville!  (And we also have this newest town home design under construction in Murfreesboro, at The Villas of Evergreen, phone 615.849.9410.)

At either of these great locations, leave the yardwork behind!   Then you’ll have even more free time to enjoy Fat Tuesday next year!

Nashville New Homes: Up, Up, and Away.

On my way to church this morning it was a blistering cold 26 degrees outside, but the sun was shining just like a summer day.  All of a sudden, I saw this hot air balloon being launched.  Before I could pull over for a picture, it was on its way soaring to new heights!

That reminds me of what we at Ole South are doing in 2011…. soaring to new heights… not in a balloon, but by offering unprecedented value in the homes we build.

For example, you will want to check out the new look of our maintenance-free townhomes at Villas of Rivendell Woods.  Two brand new home plans, unlike anything you have seen before.   Experience the flair of Key West or the sizzle of Bourbon Street from your private upstairs verandah, accessed only from your bedroom suite!

 Also new for 2011 are the most affordable new homes in Metropolitan Nashville Davidson County, in Spencer Hill, just minutes from downtown.  We have homes nearing completion from 109,990 to 129,990!  https://nashvillehomesblog.com/2010/11/03/let-the-cat-out/

And we’re also offering the very best ALL BRICK home value in Williamson County at Benevento East.  You simply will not believe these unprecedented values from the low 200’s.  Three-Car Garages and outdoor living areas are among the host of options.  

Did you eat your black eyed peas this year?  We did!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
