Here are 4 headaches Sellers deal with when selling their Knoxville home and their solutions.

To help make the interruptions more bareable, it can be helpful to make use of the time you have to get out of your housing. Go to the gym, have dinner with a friend, or run errands to make the experience more productive and positive.
The Problem: Dealing With Pets
