If you’re a first time Home Buyer, you’re probably nervous about entering the home buying market. It can be a little intimidating at first. When you search homes in the Hippest Hoods in Charlotte, you’re likely to find them disappearing within a day or two. You may even find yourself facing a bid...
Given the natural propensities of the human psyche, it’s typical, if not instinctive to look outside ourselves for answers when pondering the age old real estate question ‘Why ISN’T My House Selling?’If you’ve already arrived at this juncture, you’re probably suffering from a sense of utter helpl...
Or, 'What Real Estate Agents NEVER tell You'...Bad news and ominous admonitions are never a good form of marketing. And face it, if your Realtor® starts your newly minted Buyer Agency relationship with dour predictions, you’ll probably rethink your commitment to them. We the people love good news...
House hunting is quite likely my favorite occupation. It's actually one of my secret indulgences - probably the one least likely to land me in a dentist's chair!  Which is perfect really, because as a Realtor®, I view hundreds and hundreds of homes for sale each year. I'm also the lucky owner of ...
Home buyers should know that when shopping for homeowner's insurance, you get what you pay for. The cheapest rate may seem to fit the bill when keeping your monthly payments low.

It’s curious how easily myths manage to take their place among our everyday beliefs. Especially when it comes to matters relating to money $$$. I can assure you that I’ve heard my fair share of wild imaginings in the Real Estate business, but some assumptions seem to gain traction and hold on for...
I’m not the kind of girl to disparage others. I know how hard those of us practicing Real Estate work! But I can hardly shush my ‘tsk-tsk’s’ when I encounter Real Estate agents who just don’t ‘get’ it. Some are merely 'old school', refusing to adapt. Others are just plain burnt out, and it’s all ...
  There’s this little boomlet going on just around the corner from where I live. Locals like to call the area Plaza-Midwood,… but Midwood, Villa Heights, Belmont and  Country Club Heights all fall within the general sphere. Early twentieth-century architecture, lifestyle diversity, and an electr...
We all seem to think it can never happen to us. We’ve convinced ourselves, even. We labor under the belief that it’s simply impossible to find ‘The One’ without ever even trying. But we, the educated, the cynical, and the determined homebuyers of today … we are ohhhhh so wrong…   Is it really pos...
It hit me like an avalanche when I heard myself say to my client the other day that I’m not in the real estate business to get rich. I must admit, this was a Freudian wake-up call if ever there was one! Just as the New Year unfolds with all the possibilities for seizing my business ambitions, th...

Never one to follow unspoken rules, you'll find more than just Real Estate lurking within these pages. I just love to write. Which comes as no surprise to those who've followed my Real Estate Blog over the past 9+ years. In many ways, my writing is nomadic and unorthodox. A meandering chronicle of my thoughts and observations inspired by my passion for living, and for all things Real Estate. I hope you'll find it fresh and imaginative ~ and informative too! A tiny glimpse of ideas and experiences on buying and selling real estate throughout beautiful Charlotte NC! ❉ ❉ ❉ ❉ ❉ ❉ ❉ ❉ ❉ ❉ ❉ ❉ ❉ ❉ ❉ ❉ ❉ ❉ View Jennifer Monroe's profile on LinkedIn
