Brentwood Governors Club Seeing More Distress Sales

Brentwood Governors Club Seeing More Distress Sales
Well Known Gated Brentwood Tennessee Neighborhood Experiencing Increased Short Sale and Foreclosure Activity

Per my previous blog posts, Financial Distress Hitting Affluent Towns and Neighborhoods, Brentwood Distressed Sales Activity Increasing and Franklin Distressed Sales Activity Increasing, it is clear that exclusive, affluent, executive, luxury, gated, high-end and golf course neighborhoods are experiencing increased levels of Distress Sales (short sales and foreclosures). However, even with this information it is still surprising to such a prominent Brentwood Tennessee neighborhood like the Governors Club be hit with so many distress sales. Please consider the following sales figures which I obtained from the Middle Tennessee RealTracs MLS:
  • There are currently 35 Active Listings (i.e. homes that are actively being marketed for sale) in the Governors Club. Out of those 35 Active Listings 4 are Distress Sales (i.e. short sales and foreclosures account for over 11% of the Active Listings in the Governors Club).
  • There are currently 4 Pending Sales (i.e. homes that are under contract with buyers and are probable to close) in the Governors Club. Out of those 4 Pending Sales, 1 is a Distress Sale (i.e. short sales and foreclosures account for 25% of the Pending Sales in the Governors Club).
  • Since 1/1/2010 there have been 31 Closed Sales in the Governors Club. Out of those 31 Closed Sales, 4 were Distress Sales (i.e. short sales and foreclosures account for almost 13% of the Closed Sales in the Governors Club).
While the numbers above are not staggering when compared to other parts of the country and even other parts of the Nashville Tennessee, for a neighborhood like the Brentwood Governors Club to have 11%+ distress sales in every sales category is really bad. It is clear that even ultra exclusive, affluent, executive, luxury, gated, high-end and golf course neighborhoods are not immune to the economic and housing market collapse, and, as a result are seeing increased levels of short sales and foreclosures. I highly recommend that these homeowners seek qualified professional real estate, legal and financial advice right away to avoid foreclosure. Since I understand that many homeowners do not want their neighbors to know about their financial hardship, I generally do not use For Sale signs on my listings. I also use short sale pre-qualification techniques to minimize the marketing period of my short sale listings by thoroughly researching the financially distressed homeowners' loan type and actual lender (i.e. the loan owner or loan investor) and communicate with my clients via their cell phone (calls and text messages) and personal email to avoid embarrassment. In short, I market my listings as the "Discreet Short Sale and Foreclosure REALTOR and Real Estate Expert".
