Back to School: Wills Company & Zeitlin Sotheby’s Co-Host a USN Evening Class

We had so much fun last year hosting an Evening Class at University School of Nashville that we’re gearing up for an encore. Back by popular demand, Ridley Wills, Design Director of The Wills Company design/build/handyman firm, and Jessica Averbuch, CEO and owner of Zeitlin Sotheby’s International Realty, are teaming up for a lively he-said-she-said discussion about renovating a house versus buying a new one. 

Participants are invited to bring photographs and drawings of their current house or their dream house to get the discussion rolling. Or you can just bring a list of questions for a fun and informal conversation about whether it makes more sense to remodel or to buy a new house and move lock, stock and barrel.

What are you looking for in a new house or a remodel? Is that goal achievable at your current address? How much does it cost to add on? What’s the best way to add value to your house? How much house can you buy if you sell your current property? How long will remodeling take? What are the pros and cons of house-hunting in a booming market?

At the end of the day, we’re talking about what you want from a house and what’s the best way to get it.

In fact, this “Love It or List It” dilemma is a debate we have every day at The Wills Company with homeowners seeking to make their homes fit the shifting needs of their families. It’s our favorite conversation, made even more engaging by the participation of our friend Jessica Averbuch, who knows as much about Nashville real estate as anyone we can think of.

So, ask Ridley and Jessica if you should love it or list it, Thursday, January 23, 6:30 to 8 p.m. at University School of Nashville, 2000 Edgehill Avenue. And if that time doesn’t fit into your calendar, call The Wills Company anytime at 615-352-1228 to talk through what you’re looking for in your house and how we can help you achieve it.
