Fun in the Fall!

Fun in the Fall

Hey ya’ll

The weather here the last few days has us dreaming of color changing leaves, cool weather, and pumpkin spice everything!

We were thinking about all the ways you can have fun in the fall in the Smokies and wanted to share a few with you!

Fun in the Fall in September

September 7th through November 25th – Smoky Mountain Harvest Festival 

Gatlinburg is rolling out all the stops with NEW seasonal decorations. Gatlinburg Harvest Festival will feature over the top fall decorations including new life-size, 3-dimensional Scarecrow people.

“We could not live in a more picturesque area for viewing Fall color,” says Mark Adams, Gatlinburg CVB CEO/President. “We want to capitalize on the seasonal beauty by extending our Harvest Festival to the end of November thus giving visitors more opportunities to experience Autumn in the Smokies.”

September 13th – Taste of Autumn

Gatlinburg’s annual Taste of Autumn will feature amazing music from one of America’s finest and most recognized Beatles tribute bands, Abbey Road Live! The evening’s entertainment will start off with the musical performance of Cannon Creek. Cannon Creek plays a variety of traditional, progressive and contemporary Bluegrass.

Tickets are on sale now!

Abbey Road LIVE! is not your typical Beatle look-alike tribute act; don’t expect mop-top haircuts and vintage Rickenbacker guitars. Rather, this show is about bringing to life some of the more mature and complex Beatles material in a raw & spirited fashion, while remaining true to the original recordings.”

September 21st through October 28th – OctOBERfest

OktOBERfest returns to its Gatlinburg-style roots with 38 days of merrymaking from September 21 through October 28, 2018 as the resort commemorates the 207th anniversary of the popular festival held in Munich, Germany. The Bavarian Fun Makers Band will perform traditional Bavarian folk dances, sing-a-longs, yodels and more! Special Oktoberfest Biers will be served along with traditional German wurst, schnitzel, sauerkraut, strudel, pretzels and more.

Fun in the Fall in October

October 4th through the 21st – Gatlinburg Craftmen’s Fair

From October 4 through 21, the Gatlinburg Convention Center blossoms into a multi-level mecca of the top craft people from all across the United States. A unique characteristic of the Gatlinburg Craftsmen’s Fair is the fact that artisans not only make their art available for viewing and sale, but also demonstrate their special talents and skills during this show,.

Purchasing Land? Things to Consider

Purchasing Land - Things to Consider

 

We’ve created a list of six things to consider while purchasing land. This list is not all encompassing but is a great start to your research.

Zoning

A quick internet search should result with the city or county’s zoning regulations. Pay special attention to reference the most updated regulations as they are subject to change. You can find Sevier County’s zoning regulations here.

Restrictions

You will find restrictions in the legal description of the deed. These may either be in the body of the deed or attach as an appendix. Reach out to the county clerks office to access a copy of the deed. Some offices have online services.

Easements

To determine if their are any utilities easements you can contact the utility companies; electric, gas, and telephone. A survey will also show utility easements. You can find property easements on file at the local assessor’s office.

Access to Utilities

To confirm if you have access to city water or sewage, contact the city’s utility department. You can find information about utility access for land in Gatlinburg here. If you do not have access to city water or sewage, you will need to have a septic system installed and a well drilled to develop your land. We found this website to be a great resource for understanding the process of having a well installed. To install a septic system you must complete environmental testing.

Survey or Environmental Testing

You will need a survey to determine the definite parameters of the land you are purchasing. A survey will show utility easements. If you need to install a septic system a percolation test will be conducted.

Taxes

Here you will find explanation about how to figure your tax bill in Tennessee from the Comptroller of the Treasury. To determine your tax liability you will need the appraised value, assessment ratio, assessed value, and the tax rate for your area

We hope you found this information helpful as you consider purchasing land. Please, visit our website to find lots and land listed in Sevier County, TN!

“The willingness of America’s veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude.” – Jeff Miller

 

The Jason White Team would like to take this opportunity to honor Memorial Day this coming weekend and to remember all of those who have served, fought for and died for our great country. 

 

 

Your service inspires us all and we thank you. This weekend we will be celebrating the lives of men and women who died serving in the U.S Military.  

Decoration Day was the first name for Memorial Day. Decoration Day  commemorated those who died while fighting in the Civil War.  By 1890 every former state of the Union had adopted it as an official holiday,  but was not officially recognized nationally until the 1970’s.  Waterloo, New York states claim to the official birthplace of Memorial Day.

Here’s a word from our friends at Homes Not Alone:

Like the idea of a vacation home for your personal use or as an overnight rental investment property? Making the decision to rent your property overnight or keep it for your own use can be challenging at times.

Using a local Full Service Property Management Team such as Smoky Mountain Homes Not Alone might be just the answer for you!  A company such as this caters to an owner’s needs and special requests for the management of their vacation home.  Offering local full service with flexibility eliminates many worries when the owner is away. The property inspections are scheduled with owner’s desires and finances in mind. In addition, they accommodate the overnight rental market by managing everything from taking reservations and payments, to handling cleaning, maintenance, and guest issues. This allows an owner to be as free from commitment as they choose. Some of the pros and cons of using a Full Service Property Management Team for overnight rentals are listed below.

Pros: 

• Full Service:  A Full Service Property Management Team takes all reservations, communicates with guests before, during, and after their visit to the property. They schedule and manage trusted cleaners and handle any maintenance issues with trusted local contractors. They advertise and market your property on trusted websites and handle all payments.

• Flexible:  Owner can be involved with the property maintenance or the Full Service Property Management Team can handle everything and let the owner enjoy their property when they come for a visit. The purpose of the Full Service Property Management Team is to keep the property up to the owner’s standards and for the Management Team to receive all 5 star ratings and great reviews which enhances the owner’s bottom line- profit!!

• Location:  Homes Not Alone is located in Sevier County. We know trustworthy local contractors that will look out for the owner’s best interest. Being local also helps to answer any guest questions about local activities and allows them to plan the perfect vacation.

Cons:

• Management Fees: There is a management fee percentage that is based on the nightly rental amount. This fee is very competitive with the market; the personal care that goes into the property is very much worth it. The Full Service Property Management Team includes in their fees a cleaning inspector that makes sure the property is professionally cleaned to their standards, checks on the property between guests to be sure all maintenance issues are being addressed, and handles all guests issues promptly so the guests stay is minimally interrupted if at all.

• Hands On:  The Full Service Property Management Team does best when they handle everything so the quality stays consistent for the owner as well as the guests.

Full Service Property Management may not be for everyone. It is for the owner that wants an investment property to enjoy for themselves or strictly as an investment.  Full Service Property Management takes the stress away from owning an investment property or private vacation home.
