Q: How much do I save in commission on a $270,000 house?

A: We just helped 3 sellers in the same price range. 270-275k range. Guess what! Each one saved about $6200 in commission by listing with Kirkwood Property Group. We care about our sellers and our community. What can each family do with an additional $6200.00 ?!?! <3

Do you love and support what we’re doing?

Tell your friends, family and co-workers! We want to help more people save money and apply it towards their passions.

We can have tea or coffee, and chat about your goals in real estate, and any questions you may have. We’re laid back and chill, but we also really know our stuff. I’ve been in real estate for 13 years in Nashville, TN!

Namaste,

Q: Does it make sense to accept an offer the first day your home is on the market?

A: This question should be answered in one of two ways. 


If the seller wants limited showings, then the answer is yes. Why would a seller want limited showings you ask?  If a seller has children or pets, limited showings may be their preference.

If someone wants the highest possible price for their home, then accepting an offer the first day may not be in their best interest. 

This happened recently on one of our listings. The seller did not accept or counter the first offer, and by the end of 4 days, there were multiple offers on the table, and they got more than list, and more than the initial offer :)

would you buy a duplex?

There are many benefits to buying a duplex.

You could live in one unit, and rent out the other to a short or long term tenant.

You could tear all the walls down of the existing duplex, turn it into one big unit, and build a second one in the back.

You could offer affordable artist housing units with the duplex.

We’re fans of “mailbox money.” How can you make money while you’re sleeping?

real estate investments, through rentals and renovations have been a good source of income for us. Want to know more? Let’s have coffee!
