Condo Owners Excited About Panoramic View of Other Condo

This entry was posted on October 15, 2015. Bookmark the permalink. 3 Comments

A recent poll amongst property owners at downtown Nashville's "Twelve/Twelve" condominium tower revealed that residents list many diverse reasons when asked why they enjoy living in the luxury complex.  The top answer by far, however, seems to be a sense of growing excitement about the view from many residents' balconies which will soon offer a breathtaking look at the condo tower next door.

Connie Milton, an executive assistant at a Music Row recording label and also a Twelve/Twelve resident on the building's tenth floor, noted in her response to the informal tenant poll that "the Nashville skyline is best when completely obstructed by another characterless post-modern housing unit.  With the new Twelfth & Demonbreun condo tower coming in right next door, I'll finally be able to truly appreciate the beauty of Nashville at night the way it was meant to be seen: hidden behind a giant mass of steel and glass."

These findings correlate with a Belmont study conducted just last year which found that people have enjoyed making-out in West End's iconic Love Circle hillside up to ten times better now that the view of downtown consists mostly of John Rich's former residence, Mt. Richmore.  At the time of that study, Belmont's Dr. Harvey Franklin controversially quoted from his findings that "93.2 percent of amorous teenagers and twenty-somethings feel that the panoramic skyline is exponentially more romantic when you have to look around a large, blocky, out-of-place house to see it.  It really sets the mood."

Excited about this place opening! Right down the road from Post & Co's Berry Hill office.
clear

The wait is almost over for the most anticipated opening in the Berry Hill neighborhood this year, as fast-casual Vietnamese restaurant Vui's Kitchen plans to open its doors next week on Thursday, May 26.

Located in the former home of Curious Heart Emporium, the 50-seat eatery is owned and operated by Juice Bar co-owner Vui Hunt, along with her husband John and with backing from local restaurant group Fresh Hospitality. Hunt is taking the approach she used with Juice Bar, keeping it simple and using fresh whole food ingredients, and applying it to traditional Vietnamese dishes. And Eater has the first look at the full opening menu (below).

The menu is concise, offering up a greatest hits list of Vietnamese favorites including bone broth, pho, lotus root salad and a banh mi sandwich. Prices for small and main plates ring in at a wallet-friendly $3.95 to $9.95. Dessert items range from Vietnamese ice coffee to an avocado shake or fresh coconut served simply with a spoon. Beverage options include juices, sodas, bottled water and a small selection of beer and wine.

Hours of operation will be 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Once again, Richard Courtney telling it like it is in this hot & crazy real estate market.
clear

Upon closer inspection, you're driving us insane

Everyone who has dipped a toe into the Nashville residential real estate waters knows the pool is shallow and the springs are running hot.

With no inventory, the frustration level runs high and, when buyers finally find a home that is actually on the market, void of a contract and available for sale, those buyers shiver with anticipation, flinging their highest and best offers with all they have.

When that offer is accepted, relief and glee fill the air until those emotions are overcome by doubt. "Hmmm, wonder why no one else wanted it?" Or, "Did I pay too much?"

Then the second-guessing overcomes the buyer. Along comes the inspection, and the buyers are devastated to learn their dream home is a money pit. They have been bamboozled.

Steve Fridrich of Fridrich and Clark Realty fame often points to the psychological mess this situation causes when emotions of frustration, exhilaration, doubt and disappointment converge. The stream can become turbulent and the whitewater swirls in the minds of the buyers.

Years ago, the state mandated all home inspectors must be licensed by the state and, once that happened, almost all of the inspectors joined a trade organization known as ASHI, or the American Society of Home Inspectors.

In most inspections today, the inspectors use the same electronic forms and digital formats for their reporting, and it is a significant improvement over the hand-scratched cursive, three-triplicate forms used before all of the licensing.

The first several pages are titled "Repair Summary." Initially, when these new forms were introduced, buyers and their agents scoured the summary and chose which items they felt would be reasonable to request that the owners repair. Not now.

Current practice is that the buyers request, should I say demand, that the sellers make any and all repairs included in the summary.

Some of these deficiencies could include lights that do not function. In most cases, the bulbs have ended their life and need to be replaced.

At other times there is a secret switch that activates the light. When buyers read that a number of the lights in the home are not functioning, they deem that there has been shoddy electrical work.

Some inspectors refer to all fungus as mold, and they stand a 4 in 22,000 chance of being right. Mold, understandably, terrifies.

Last week, one buyer had the water tested and requested a $7,000 water treatment system for the house. The seller found it odd that her drinking water would be dangerous, especially since Scott Potter, the director of Metro Water Services lived in the vicinity. She called him.

He had the water tested and it was in good shape.

What many buyers forget when they digest the inspection report is that they did not pay too much for the houses. They paid the market price. What they also tend to dismiss is that simply because their contracts were accepted does not mean that others did not and do not want the homes.

After negotiating with a buyer on an inspection report, one seller said she would not want to sell to that buyer as she did not want to inflict such a personality on her neighbors. She then terminated the contract.

Whole Foods is Coming to Downtown Nashville!!

Whole Foods adding downtown Nashville store

 Updated 

Adam SichkoSenior ReporterNashville Business Journal

 

 

Whole Foods is bringing another grocery store to Nashville - and it's coming to a proposed 27-story mixed-use development downtown.

Downtown currently lacks a full-service grocery store, the most glaring amenity missing for a downtown population that's jumped 60 percent in five years, to about 8,660 residents. That Nashville Downtown Partnership projects that headcount to surge nearly 20 percent by year's end, topping 10,200 residents. The arrival of any grocery, particularly one with Whole Foods' profile, would be a jolt to developers pursuing apartment and condo projects and also city officials working to recruit more companies to relocate into the city core.

Endeavor Real Estate Group, of Austin, is proposing this 27-story tower at the corner of 12th Avenue North and Broadway.
