It’s funny how different the importance of a room in a house can go from one season to the next. Just recently a home office was a “nice to have” but really, unless you were in the minority of those that worked from home, it was truly just a bonus, and typically dependent on if you had the space to dedicate or not. Fast forward to the pandemic era and likely, you’ve been at a “home office” whether you’ve really had one set up or not for months. For those that are working from home but haven’t taken the time to really set up a good home office, now is the time to change that!

Thinking about buying a first home or a second? You have many loan options, and each one varies as far as their down payment requirements. Use this quick guide to get an idea of the amount you'll need to put down on your next purchase.

Is 20% Down Always Necessary to Buy a Home?

The down payment refers to the monies you'll put down during the mortgage closing, and it's often expressed as a percentage of the property price. For example, 20% down on a $200,000 home means paying $40,000 at closing.

20% down can make homeownership feel too out of reach. But take heart, very few loan programs are firm about needing 20% at closing. You can even get a conventional mortgage with as little as 3% down! Read on to learn more.

The current need for social distancing has rekindled the nation’s love of the drive-in movie theater, and Middle Tennessee is no exception. Locals have been flocking to the nearest drive-in to experience the nostalgia and excitement of enjoying a movie from the comfort of their own vehicles. If you would like to join in on the fun this summer, read on for our local picks for the Best Drive-In Movie Theaters of Middle Tennessee!

Since the current pandemic means that no new movies are being released this year, your nearest drive-in will be showing either a classic or slightly older movie.
