Nashville Opportunity Zones

Last week I had the opportunity to attend a lecture on Opportunity Zones. At the lecture we learned what Opportunity Zones are and why we should invest in them. If you’re unfamiliar with Opportunity Zones they are a new community development tool established by Congress in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. This new tool is designed to drive long-term capital to low-income communities. But how? Well, the new law provides a federal tax incentive for investors to re-invest their capital gains into Opportunity Funds, which are specialized vehicles dedicated to investing in designated low-income areas. Now, before you go throwing all of your capital gains into an Opportunity Fund, here’s what you need to know.

When people hear the word “feast”, they typically think of food and wine.

Earnest Money Best Practices – How Much “Trust” is Needed in a Real Estate Transaction?

How do you know if you can trust someone? Earnest Money in Real Estate is, in theory, a financial good faith offering showing that you intend to purchase a property and perform tasks to close per contract guidelines and stipulations. But does Earnest money mean you can really trust someone to perform?

Nashville Pool House Remodel

Chuck and Holly Paetz have a beautiful home in South Nashville. I have worked with Chuck in the Real Estate industry for years even partnering on many deals to play to our strengths. He approached me about helping them to remodel an existing garage and workshop into an in law suite for Holly’s parents. The unit was to one side of their pool and also had a restroom, storage, and a shed. I love anything to do with water themed design, and the Paetz’s have been long time personal colleagues and friends so of course I was elated to be their Architect.
