1. Zoo and OPC Reach Compromise in Greensward Controversy -

3. Last Word: Budget Basics, A Peak At Greensward Mediation and Elvis & Nixon -

Spurs 94 – Grizzlies 68 in game 2 of the NBA playoffs. The TNT post-game show just showed the highlights of the game while Shaq and Charles Barkley talked about how big the women are in San Antonio. I’m not making this up. They didn’t even try to talk about the game. This is just grim.

4. Finding a Compromise on the Greensward Issue -

The current debate over the Memphis Zoo’s use of the Greensward for overflow parking is more complex than most realize. Opponents of this usage try to paint a very compelling picture of the Zoo as a massive, profit-driven enterprise which came into Overton Park like an invasive species and has recklessly expanded, gobbling up park land and taking it away from the citizens.

5. McDonald's Trial Gives Peek at Chain's Inner Workings -

NEW YORK (AP) – A pivotal trial against McDonald's that began this week is providing a peek into the inner workings of the maker of the Big Mac.

8. Mix It Up -

Memphis’ development eye is turning inward and upward as mixed-use projects are becoming more common than ever before.

Usually a mode of survival for densely packed cities, residential, office, retail and even manufacturing are cohabitating in single mixed-use buildings or lots as a way to recoup Memphis’ sprawl. Downtown and Midtown are being combed for infill and adaptive reuse possibilities as millennials are moving to the urban core in droves.

The Greater Nashville Association of Realtors’ May sales data show sales continuing to rise.

There were 3,558 closings, up 15.6 percent from last May. In comparison, there were 1,783 closings in May 2009. So closings have almost doubled since the Recession. And, as everyone knows, inventory has dropped dramatically.

12. Friendly Fire May Put Your House Hunt at Risk -

Friends don’t let friends buy junk. As it pertains to real estate, friends don’t let friends buy anything. In the past it was the parents with the “Ma and Pa Meddle” syndrome that impeded the youth from purchasing homes.

Developers got a tentative green light to move forward with the ambitious One Beale project, convincing regulators that the twin skyscraper development would be a game-changer for the Memphis skyline.

14. Inspector Anxiety Bites Both Buyers and Sellers -

Almost all home sales stipulate that a home inspector will evaluate the condition of the house. The person who coined the “fine-toothed comb” phrase may well have had visions of these detectives crawling into places fit neither for man nor beast and ascending high into the heavens shingle by shingle.

15. Ramsey Uses ‘System’ to Reshape State’s Political Landscape -

Senate Speaker and Lieutenant Gov. Ron Ramsey laughs at the notion he’s changed since being elected to the Legislature 23 years ago, that he’s lost touch with the common man or become “arrogant” as lieutenant governor of Tennessee.

16. Do We Have a Deal? Yes, Until We Don’t -

People are angry now. Angrier than ever. In the past, there may have been a slight skirmish or two, but now there are battles that often escalate into full-scale wars.

Buyers feel they have paid too much, and sellers feel they are being waterboarded during the inspection process.

17. Nashville Zoning Issue a Big Threat to Tiny Houses -

As the price per square foot for Nashville properties continues its climb, buyers are paying more for less.

18. Escalation Clause Adds to Real Estate Craziness -

How crazy is it out there (there being the residential real estate market, of course)?

It is wild, and as Kent McMillin, a successful – and busy – loan officer with Farmington Financial says, “Almost every potential buyer finds himself in a predicament.”

19. That Old Fireplace? No, It’s Strictly Decorative -

There is a new trend developing in the sale of homes in the area.

20. Affordability? It’s All in the Eye of the Buyer -

The new construction at 2314 Castleman sold last week for $1,365,000 after Brent Morris of Parks listed the home for $1,395,000. Morris has developed a niche in locating infill lots and teardowns – to use the plural of the now-popular noun created by adding verb to adverb – in the Green Hills area.

21. Holding On -

The national outlook for traditional enclosed malls is bleak. No new enclosed mall has been built in the U.S. since 2006. More than 24 have closed since 2010, and an additional 60 are teetering on the edge, according to data from Green Street Advisors. Around 15 percent of malls nationwide are expected to close in the next decade.

22. Nashville Mayor’s Race Exposes Unpleasant Problems -

In six weeks or so, the Greater Nashville area will learn what a snowmegeddon can do to area home sales.

With a quarter of the month frozen, it was hard for buyers to let it go and embark upon a house hunt. March closings, reflecting February sales, will be released in early April and might slow the freight train that the residential real estate has been riding for almost three years.

27. $1 Million-Plus Sales Reach New Heights in 2014 -

As 2014 comes to a close, the “Where does it end?” question is becoming more and more a part of the conversation.

And based on the past, it is a logical concern as buyers are being forced to pay more and more for houses with demand high and inventory low.

28. ’Tis the Season -

After the recession struck, desperate retailers competing for a shrinking amount of shopping dollars and market share began tinkering with time-tested holiday marketing strategies.

Good prices, great values, unique offerings and convenience no longer were enough to boost retail sales.

29. Green Hills in Full Boom Despite Traffic Woes -

40. Many Seek New Homes Near Cities But are Priced Out -

WASHINGTON (AP) – City living has been a blessing for Tim Nelson.

The Phoenix lawyer moved downtown a few months ago into a new $389,000 home with a warehouse-style floor plan, a Jacuzzi tub and kitchen counters made of Caesarstone quartz.

46. Good Dog -

TRICKS YOUR DOG TEACHES YOU. Last weekend, the Lawsons’ church retreat was interrupted by loss. A dog had to be put down – more than a dog – Posey had to be put down. The fact that she had long been failing didn’t make the vet’s call any easier to answer, the drive north from Mississippi’s Camp Bratton Green any shorter. Posey came before the other children, before the move to Memphis, came to be part of everything and everybody for 16 years.

47. Cutting Edge -

65. Residential Greening -

There was a time not so long ago when potential homebuyers had to demand energy efficiency in new homes.

Nowadays, green features are more of an expectation than an extra.

“I would venture to say that just about everybody asks about energy efficiency,” said Martha Fondren, director of sales and marketing for Grant & Co. “They may not say it in those words, but they ask us about what kind of furnaces we are using, what kind of faucets, what kind of insulation. What are the standard things that people can expect when they walk in the home in order to save them money on the utility bills because that’s a huge expense.”

77. Have ‘Mondegreens’ Had Their Day? -

The word “Mondegreen” made it into the dictionary in 2000, 46 years after it was coined. I guess I haven’t written about it since before that time.

78. There’s Greenbacks In Going Green -

Ray’s Take: Going green is a noble goal, but what really interests me is turning green behavior into more green in your wallet. It’s doubly satisfying when you shrink your carbon footprint and increase your spending (or saving) power at the same time.

79. Darkened Doors Speak To Industry Challenges -

“We couldn’t make the space work. We tried, but we couldn’t get over the hump to get the numbers.”

82. Dodging the Deluge -

The last time the Memphis river gauge was this high, Memphis was a much different place. In 1937 when the Mississippi River at Memphis topped 48.7 feet, Mud Island was really an island with no levee connecting it to the city and the Wolf River flowing between it and the city proper. Parts of the city were still rural as was the county outside Memphis. Today’s suburban development was a long way off, and Millington was still a few years away from getting the Naval Air Station.

March came in like a lion and it didn’t exactly go out like a lamb, but the contradictory month still spells the beginning of spring, when young men’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love, and chefs in restaurant kitchens begin considering changes to their menus that reflect a more buoyant season.

94. Rally Time -

As soon as he heard the Memphis Redbirds were coming to town in 1998, Buddy Young bought season tickets and has renewed them every year since.
