Benchmark Realty, LLC, 2500 - 21st Ave S., Nashville TN 37212

SELLERS, Do you live in one of the hot selling areas of Nashville? Are investors calling you or knocking on your door to buy? We just sold a property in 12SOUTH, a Nashville demand area, for $335,000. The owner had gotten calls from investors wanting to buy his property for $225,000! He was pleased at the drastically increased net dollars he received after we listed his property, and put it on the open market in the Multiple Listing Service. Realtors, and potential buyers, had the information and could make competing offers to buy.

We did some research on properties sold within the past year and found that within a half mile of this 12SOUTH property, the median sales price of properties listed with a Realtor, and on MLS, was $446,650. The median sales price of properties sold directly by owner was $371,675. 
That is a big difference, and more money in your pocket when using a Realtor. If you are selling, call us! We will be excited to meet with you!

Email us if you would like a list of the properties surveyed. Put "12South List" in subject line. (Information is deemed reliable, but is not warranted.)
