The Torgerson Team's second annual Back to School School Supply Drive was a huge success! Thanks to you and your donations, we were able to love on 10 of our local teachers with gift baskets overflowing with goodies. 

Our journey to deliver these gift baskets took us to on a tour of area schools including ones in Chattanooga, Ringgold, Rossville, Hixson, Signal Mountain, Soddy-Daisy and Rock Spring. Along the way we heard so many stories of how your donations would make a difference

 "Move-in ready" and "fixer-upper" are two terms you're likely to come across during your home search. The interpretation of these two terms can be different, depending upon the individual. 

A novice would interpret the home as a fixer-upper, while a buyer experienced in home improvement may consider the home move-in ready. 

Sure, home improvement reality TV shows stimulate creativity. But, they also create deceitful perceptions of what a typical house would look like on a showing. The vast majority of houses you view will have their shortcomings, so it’s vital to understand the difference between fixer uppers and move-in ready homes.

Now that we’re halfway through 2018, we thought it was a great time for a mid-year review of Chattanooga’s booming real estate market. With low home inventory and plenty of people either relocating here or choosing to buy a home, there are great opportunities for both buyers and sellers in today's market. Here’s what we know looking back on 2018 so far:

1. Median sale price is at a three-year high in the Greater Chattanooga and North Georgia areas

The median sales price for 2018 is currently at $201,000, while in 2016 it sat at $172,000. Home prices are doing well in many areas of our market. For example, in St. Elmo homes sell 30 days faster than the area average and for almost $10,000 more than other areas! Many sellers are surprised by home
