Log cabins for sale in TN are in many cases exempt for the seller disclosing any thing because they are not owner occupied.   However, homes for sale Gatlinburg TN and homes for sale Pigeon Forge TN are not exempt if the owner has spent the night in the house in the past three years, generally speaking.  The first issue is some sellers are claiming exempt when in fact the Gatlinburg house was not exempt.  This is done to avoid disclosing major issues that deter a buyer or lower the value.   

Today's real estate market is very fast paced and many homes for sale Sevierville Tn do not stay listed as active in MLS for 48 hours.  A single cabin for sale Gatlinburg TN may receive forty offers.  As a result of the fast pace of the sales many agents are writing purchase and sale offers on Smoky Mountains cabins for sale withoutseeing the cabin and are relying on the description, disclosures and photographs.  To make the offer more attractive to the seller they are waiving the inspection contingency of cabins for sale in the smoky mountains.  Both of these conditions can cause the buyer to purchase a Gatlinburg cabin for sale that was overpriced or should simply never been purchased for any amount.  Purchasing  Cabins for sale smoky mountains is a big investment and needs to be carefully evaluated.  The list below are of items that actually occurred in cabins for sale in the smoky mountains.  None of them were disclosed.   Some were exempt and the real estate agent or  home inspector would be need to catch them.  Others were not exempt but the seller decided to omit the information on the Sevierville house for sale.
