The Good, the Bad, and the (VERY) Ugly

Gatlinburg foreclosure properties come in at least 3 flavors: Good, Bad, and Ugly.  If you think about it this is probably true for all real estate but it seems to be particularly apt when considering foreclosure real estate.  Today was a great example of what I mean.  We were assigned a new foreclosure property (nothing new here, we currently manage around 90 properties, the majority of which are Smoky Mountain foreclosures) in the Morristown area (where we have several other listings already).  On my way to the new property I went through some very attractive areas including this spectacular gated family compound:
As I drove further toward the property that we had been assigned, I was getting ever closer to Cherokee Lake and visions of spectacular lake front property danced in my head.  Unfortunately, as I approached the address the nature of the neighborhood suddenly changed for the worse and when I finally arrived I found this:
Not a gated family compound mansion by a long shot but then the side view made the overall picture even less attractive:
Only a mile or two from the phenomenally large and beautiful gated compound was the property that we will be listing for our client.  Sadly, this property pretty well defines ugly.  Although it is near the lake the lot falls just short of actually having lake frontage.  In fact, you really can't even see the lake from the property although it is VERY close.  The dogs are cute but I suspect that the inside of the house won't be.

There are however some VERY attractive homes coming soon to the market.  Here's a sample of some of the Gatlinburg area foreclosure homes that have been priced this week as well as a number of properties we will be offering for sale very soon:
3/3 Log Cabin in a Great Pigeon Forge location with all city utilities only $199,900!!

Huge 4000+ SF Sevierville area residence in a super neighborhood - Price TBA.

Charming 4 BR Maryville stucco residence with an in-ground pool priced at only $199,900!

Dreamy & easily accessible Wears Valley home with a year round National Park view - Price TBA.

Fully furnished 2/2 RiverStone condominium in Pigeon Forge - Price TBA!

Fully furnished Gatlinburg 2/2 true log cabin - Price TBA.

All of these Smoky Mountain homes will likely sell very quickly and for only a fraction of the price they sold for a few years ago.  Whether you are looking for a great Sevierville residence, a super Gatlinburg vacation home, or a Pigeon Forge condominium on the river we have (or will have VERY soon) just what you are looking for!
