It's been a busy month here in the Cary Apex Raleigh area of North Carolina. I've been showing buyers quite a few houses lately. Even though we live in the South, January can still be a gloomy time of the year. And when it's raining out houses can look dark and uninviting inside.  Don't make buyers feel like they're entering a cave! If you're selling your home it's always a good idea to OPEN the blinds and curtains, and turn on the lights. The buyers do not want to feel like they're entering a cave! The extra few cents that it will cost you to leave the lights on when you have a showing will be more than made up for in the sale price of the home and the shorter time on market. I showed 18 homes to a lovely couple this past week and the 4 homes that made the top of the list were all brig...

Don't forget folks...On Saturday, May 5th, 2012, our little town of Apex, North Carolina will hold it's annual "Peak of Good Living" celebration, the Apex Peak Fest!   Peak Fest originally started out in a school parking lot and has grown to be such a grand event that hundreds of vendors and over 25,000 people attend every year. Salem Street, our version of Main Street, USA, is closed to traffic as clowns and magicians entertain the little ones, food and crafts vendors line the streets, and bands play throughout the day. All your typical festival food is readily available and children can enjoy the KidZone area that's filled with rides and games. It's truly one of the many family friendly events sponsored by the Town of Apex and every year it just seems to get better and better.     Dir...

 I Shot a Man in Reno Just to Watch Him Die! FREE Concert in Apex, North Carolina!   The following announcement was just sent to me via the Halle Cultural Arts Center of Apex, North Carolina. I’m re-posting it here for those of you who might have otherwise missed it, AND so you don’t miss this show! The Folsom Prison Gang is a five piece Johnny Cash tribute band out of Western North Carolina. A love of Johnny Cash music, along with a desire to do something totally different, led to the formation of the Folsom Prison Gang in early 2007. Since then, the band has been performing at festivals, theaters, and events, bringing that famous boom-chicka-boom sound to audiences from South Carolina to Maryland. No alcohol or pets allowed. Concert is FREE, no ticket required. Saturday, April 21, 7pm...
