The Den: Your Ultimate Guide to Housing and Community Insights

Your Go-To Resource for Housing and Community News

Welcome to The Den!

Welcome to the first episode of The Den, brought to you by the Knox Fox Real Estate Group. This podcast is dedicated to all things housing and our growing community in the greater Knoxville area. In this episode, we have Eric Whitener, the broker owner of The Knox Fox Real Estate Group, and Teri Jo Fox, the lead agent in their office. Together, they make a formidable team with a combined  36 years of experience working in the real estate market. Their goal with this podcast is to provide relevant and accurate information to potential buyers and sellers in their market.

Understanding the Local Market

As someone who is constantly researching and staying up-to-date with real estate news, Eric has noticed that there is often a disconnect between the information available and what is relevant to their market. Many statistics and reports are outdated by the time they are released, making it crucial for buyers and sellers to have access to more current and localized market data. Eric and Teri Jo aim to bridge this gap by providing up-to-date market statistics and interpreting what they mean for buyers and sellers in today's market.

Exploring Interest Rates and Financing Options

Interest rates are a hot topic in the real estate industry, with rates fluctuating over the years. Eric and Teri Jo emphasize the importance of understanding interest rates and their impact on affordability. They discuss how interest rates have recently decreased and how this can benefit buyers who purchased when rates were higher. They also plan to invite loan originators onto the show to discuss the various financing options available, debunk misconceptions about down payments, and shed light on lesser-known programs that can help buyers achieve their homeownership dreams.

Maintenance and Repairs

Eric and Teri Jo understand the importance of maintaining a home and the potential issues that can arise if regular maintenance is neglected. They share their list of trusted vendors who prioritize quality and fair pricing. Their goal is to ensure that their clients and listeners have access to reliable professionals who can help with home repairs and maintenance. Teri Jo provides valuable advice on how to maintain seldom-visited areas like crawl spaces to prevent any surprises down the road.

Preparing for Homeownership

One common mistake made by homebuyers is not being adequately prepared for the homebuying process. Eric and Teri Jo want to change that by providing listeners with a roadmap to homeownership. They plan to cover topics such as what to expect, how to prepare financially, and the steps involved in the homebuying process. By offering this guidance, they hope to empower potential buyers and help them navigate the often overwhelming journey of purchasing a home.

Community News and Events

Eric and Teri Jo believe in being active members of their community. They are passionate about sharing local news, highlighting their favorite places to eat, shop, and find entertainment, and informing listeners about upcoming events. They also take this opportunity to discuss Teri Jo's involvement as the president-elect of the Rotary Club of Farragut. The club is hosting a fundraising golf tournament at Top Golf to support their service projects, including Sleep in Heavenly Peace, an organization that builds beds for children in need. They invite the community to participate or donate to this amazing cause.
