12 Days of Giving 2015 Day 12: Todd Tressler chose SAFE (Soldiers And Families Embraced)
clear

I chose SAFE (Soldiers And Families Embraced) for their incredible work to support our veterans. The system in place for returning troops is seriously lacking and SAFE has stepped in to fill the gap. My grandfather was a veteran and I believe in supporting our military personnel as they come back from defending our freedoms. They currently get less than 48hrs of help from the very military they've served! SAFE works with these heroes who have been through extreme danger and hardships on our behalf, to help them readjust to life back home. SAFE is involved with the entire military community as they are all impacted in these difficult times. They offer these programs to our service men and women and no cost to them; as it should already be. To learn more about How SAFE helps our troops and their families click here.

"A man who is good enough to shed his blood for his country is good enough to be given a square deal afterwards. More than that no man is entitled to, and less than that no man shall have."

- Teddy Roosevelt

Connie learned firsthand at a young age the trials and tribulations that individuals with Cerebral Palsy experience.  She has an awesome brother who was diagnosed and wishes to support this foundation.  The Cerebral Palsy Foundation studies the causes of cerebral palsy, focuses on women's health, brain research, and allowing children access to activities as normal as playing video games.  While their work includes a research such as brain and genetics research, their focus is on changing lives today.  Their CEO Richard Ellenson said "While we look to the future and the incredible advances that await, let us never lift our gaze so high that it fails to see the enormous impact we can have today."

12 Days of Giving 2015 Day 8: Jonathan Tinsley chose Westland United Methodist Tutoring Ministry
clear

"Westland United Methodist,  has a group of approximately a dozen adults who volunteer their time to help local children. Some of these volunteers go to an elementary school near the church on an established day of the week and pick up children who wish to attend the church activity. The children walk back to the church with several of the adults. The children are given snacks, then participate in physical activities before they are helped with learning fairly basic elementary school concepts. Many of these children may be behind in school for whatever reason and need outside support. In addition to tutoring, they are introduced to the church. This ministry is fairly new but has already grown to almost capacity. Many more volunteers and resources are needed. Children are so important and many times they are overlooked for local ministries and this type of help." Donate To Westland Tutoring Ministry " Jonathan Tinsley

12 Days of Giving 2015 Day 3: Dawn Decker chose Salvation Army Angel Tree
clear

" In past years, I have donated to the Salvation Army Angel Tree. This charity is for children, as well as the elderly, however my adoptee always ended up being a child.  This charity I kept close to my heart because we were able to "adopt" a child for the season and receive their specific Christmas list. I really enjoyed knowing that what I purchased was the actual request of the child that would be receiving it." Donate to Salvation Army Angel Tree Dawn Decker

" My charity of choice is Run4Don.  This is a 5k/15k held annually in Gainesboro, TN to honor a close friend of my wife's family named Don Chaffin.  Don was diagnosed with ALS (or Lou Gehrig's Disease) and succumbed to it in 2011.  My wife knew Don her entire life and he was a man I grew to respect in the years I knew him; especially as I watched him battle this disease.  He was a minister for many years and had a passion for serving the children in the church.  His legacy inspired a group of individuals to start this race to serve two purposes: fund scholarships for children to attend college and fund research to help find a cure for ALS.

The holiday countdown has begun and the season of giving is upon us!

It has been another wonderful year for the Tressler & Associates team. We feel blessed beyond measure and we are extremely grateful for our friends, families, and clients who have made our success possible. As a token of our gratitude, the Tressler & Associates team is excited to celebrate "12 Days of Giving" for our second year! We are donating to several organizations that our team members hold near and dear to their hearts. Each day a member of our team will share the organization they have selected as a recipient of our "12 Days of Giving" along with their reason why. It is our hope, that along with these donations, we can bring more awareness to these organizations that help make our communities merry and bright throughout the year.

If you would like to join us in donating to any of these worthy causes there will be links on each post. Please feel free to share these posts with your friends, family, and colleagues to help spread the word.

12 Days of Giving 2015 Day 1: Erika Piland chose Room In The Inn
clear

"Room in the Inn is an incredible organization that focuses on helping those who are homeless. For example, at this point in the year, they are busy finding places for people to have a warm meal and a place to sleep on cold nights. But beyond providing the necessities for people, they provide invaluable training. They give people training and resources to obtain jobs and become self-sufficient. They provide spiritual and emotional help, as well. After volunteering with Room in the Inn and meeting several men who are in the programs offered, it is obvious that they are immensely grateful for the way the program has helped them. Room in the Inn is changing lives and I would love to see their work expand.." Donate To Room In The Inn" Erika Piland

Types of Deeds in Tennessee
clear

In Tennessee, there are different types of Deeds.  Before I get into that, though, let me define what I mean by "Deed." It can become confusing because term "Deed" is often used to refer to a Deed of Trust.   A Deed of Trust is the document that is recorded in Tennessee securing the property as collateral for a Lender.  In short, that is not the document that I am talking about.  I am talking about a Deed that someone signs conveying his or her interest in real estate to another person or entity.  In our office, this is most frequently a Warranty Deed.  However, what many people do not realize is that the Warranty Deed is actually a specific type of Deed.  The type of Deed that is used defines the guarantees that the Grantor (often, the Seller) is making to the Grantee (often, the Buyer).   This may make more sense if I define the types of Deeds.

  1. Warranty Deed.  As I mentioned, this is probably the most common type of Deed used in real estate transactions.  In this type of Deed, the Grantor is providing a warranty to the Grantee that he or she is conveying good and marketable title.  The Grantor is stating that he or she owns the property and has the right to convey it.
     
  2. Quitclaim Deed.  This is probably the second most common type of Deed that we see.  In this Deed, the Grantor makes no claims as to the title.  In essence, the Grantor is saying, "whatever interest I have in this property, I give to you." This means that the Grantor could actually have no interest in the property, 100% of the interest in the property, or any interest on the spectrum in between those two extremes.  This type of Deed provides the least amount of title security to the Grantee. The Grantor makes no warranties as to the title.
     
  3. Special Warranty Deed.  This type of Deed is somewhere in between the two Deeds above.  In a Special Warranty Deed, the Grantor is stating that he or she did not have any title issues while he or she owned the property, but there are no other guarantees involved.  This is often used in commercial real estate transactions.
     
  4. Other Miscellaneous Deeds.  There are several other miscellaneous Deed titles that are used, but those Deeds are usually somewhat synonymous to the Deeds described above.

It should be noted that the type of Deed does not affect the way the property is titled.  For more information on the way property can be titled, see my previous blog, "Options for Titling Real Estate in Tennessee." However, it is important to know the type of Deed that is being used so that you, as the Buyer or Seller, know exactly what you are guaranteeing or receiving.  Our firm would be glad to help guide you to the correct Deed that should be used in your situation.
