Franklin, Tennessee's Dickens of a Christmas - Another Great Event
Franklin & Brentwood, TN Homes Mike Nastri - Rodney Kennedy, It matters to us as much as it matters to you. (Keller Williams Realty)

Franklin, Tennessee's Dickens of a Christmas

Too good to miss.  Of the dozen or so Franklin festivals Dickens of a Christmas is my favorite.  Perhaps it is because I have fond memories of the annual "A Christmas Carol" play by Dickens throughout my school years or the many wonderful renditions of this story, including the one that featured Mr. Magoo as Scrooge.  But of all the Christmas stories after the Nativity, this one rings true to me.  

While walking around historic downtown Franklin is always heartwarming. It is exciting at the same time.  We still need a fresh market so Scrooge can order up the Christmas goose for the Cratchits after his ghostly transformation.  Yet everything else is perfect for what is arguably the best Dickens fest this side of the Atlantic. 

If you come to downtown Franklin this weekend, enjoy the sights, the sounds, the smells, and the food.  Be be sure to have a fried doughnut (my favorite treat), whether it is with hot coffee, chocolate or spiced cider.  If you can't make it to downtown, please enjoy the the slides from Dickens of a Christmas past below.

If you happen to be viewing this blog from afar and want to move to Middle Tennessee, or Franklin be sure to follow the links to Homes for Sale.  You can find them there in all sizes and price ranges.

For you and yours during this season remember Tiny Tim's blessing, "God bless us, every one!"

Southern Bliss: Uncle Bud's, Sweet Tea, Fried Pickles and Hushpuppies

Southern Bliss: Uncle Bud's, Sweet Tea, Fried Pickles and Hushpuppies

Tom White Franklin TN REALTOR®One of the things I absolutely love about Franklin TN is the many eateries that line the streets. My husband and I often go to historic downtown Franklin to enjoy an afternoon.

Today, we were previewing condos in historic Franklin. I realized on the way that I had not eaten lunch. As a matter of fact, I hadn't eaten any breakfast either. Since it was already 1:15 and our first showing was at 1:30, there wasn't any time to stop.

We had a very successful time previewing condos at Jamison Station and as a reward decided to head over to Uncle Bud's at 901 Columbia Avenue in Franklin.

Uncle Bud's is actually known for their fried catfish. Now, I'm not a catfish eater but they also have great fried chicken. Since this was meant to be a snack and not a meal, I opted for the fried pickles. Tom decided to get hushpuppies. At 4 for $1, how can you beat the price?

This is what I call Southern bliss: Uncle Bud's, sweet tea, fried pickles and hushpuppies. It was a thoroughly enjoy afternoon previewing condos and snacking at Uncle Bud's.

If you've never had fried pickles before, they are absolutely wonderful. It's a good thing both Tom and I have good, strong hearts because that was a lot of fried food at one sitting. Just another thing to love about living in the South.

I highly recommend Uncle Bud's and be sure to get the fried pickles and hushpuppies.

Historic Franklin TN Home Sales for December 2012
Tammie White, TW Realty Group, Franklin TN, South of Nashville (Benchmark Realty, LLC (615) 495-0752 or www.TWRealtyGroup.net)

Historic Franklin TN Home Sales for December 2012 provided by Tammie White:

  • Properties currently active on the market: 20Historic Franklin TN Homes for Sale
  • Single-family properties closed in December 2012: 2
  • Average sales price: $546,250
  • Average list price: $554,815
  • Sales price to list price ratio: 98.5%
  • Average days on the market: 71
  • Sales currently pending: 3
  • Historic Franklin absorption rate: 10 months of inventory (a normal or steady market would be 5-7 months; anything under 5 months of inventory is considered a sellers' market, above 7 months is considered a buyers' market).

Since many of the Historic Franklin homes can date as far back as the 1830's, the inventory can linger on the market for quite awhile waiting for the right buyer. However, the historic Franklin TN home sales for December 2012 include a combination of historic and new homes.

While the inventory is still high, the average sales price to list price is excellent and the average days on the market is low. This is encouraging news. Especially, given the fact that of the 20 homes currently listed, 5 are already under contract that haven't been moved into pending yet.

Buyers still have an opportunity to take advantage of this buyers' market in historic Franklin. Prices are much lower than they were four years ago. If you've always wanted to own a historic home, there are some wonderful homes still available. Many of these homes are within walking distance to the town square, shops and eateries.

If you are interested in a Franklin TN home for sale or wish to sell your Franklin TN home, contact Tammie White, your Franklin TN REALTOR®, at (615) 495-0752.
