The First Annual Apex Jazz Festival Downtown Apex Saturday September 17, 2011 When I moved to the Raleigh/ Cary/ Apex area just over a decade ago, I knew it was a wonderful place to call home. And, over the years, it just keeps getting better and better. With so many great family oriented events, the Raleigh/ Cary/ Apex area is top notch. On Saturday, September 17th, the town of Apex adds yet another great event to the calendar. The First Annual Apex Jazz Festival. On tap for the day will be non stop live Jazz music from some of the Triangle area's top jazz bands. Beginning at 2PM and jamming until midnight, there will be 10 indoor venues and one outdoor stage flooding Salem Street with great music! Also on hand will be 100.7FM, The River, broadcasting live from Downtown Apex. So, if yo...

President Obama Visits "The Peak of Good Living", Apex, NC Today President Barack Obama will be visiting "The Peak of Good Living", Apex, North Carolina. Now, I don't care what your political bent is, but when someone of this magnitude (from either political party) comes to visit my tiny little town, it's big news. The President's first stop is at a local business. And, even though this event in Apex is a "closed" event,  the president will be speaking in an open to the public event at NC State University in Raleigh. Tickets are required to attend. But they are free. I tried to get a ticket, but to no avail as the lines were around the block! A few years ago, former President Bill Clinton spoke at the Apex Community Center and I was able to get into that one. It was pretty amazing to se...

I just received this wonderful recommendation from a buyer client/friend/first time home buyer. I just wanted to take a minute to thank her for her kind words. Being able to help put you in this home where you can raise your new child, was my pleasure. You are the epitome of why I got into this business in the first place. Thanks for being so awesome and for sharing these kind thoughts."John was the perfect agent. I could not have asked for anything better. I am a first time home buyer and he was able to answer all my questions and was always available. He was always in contact with me to make sure we were on the same page and that we were on track to close on the scheduled day. I highly recommend John to everyone whether you are looking to relocate or buy a new home." Thanks Chelsea a...

One month after an unceremonious dip highlighted by poor sales figures and dim prospects for the future, the National Association of Homebuilder's Housing Market Index rebounded two points to 15 in July. The monthly Housing Market Index is scored on a 1-100 scale. Readings above 50 indicate favorable conditions for homebuilders and the "new home" market. Readings below 50 indicate unfavorable conditions. The Housing Market Index has not read higher than 50 in more than 5 years. As a housing metric, the HMI is actually a composite of three separate surveys, self-reported by builders. The surveys ask about current single-family home sales volume; projected single-family home sales volume; and current buyer foot traffic levels. In July, the responses read as follows :  Current single-famil...

For the 9th straight month last month, foreclosure activity slowed. According to foreclosure-tracking firm RealtyTrac, the number of foreclosure filings dropped 29 percent nationwide on an annual basis in June. The phrase "foreclosure filing" is a catch-all term, comprising default notices, scheduled auctions, and bank repossessions. June marked the ninth consecutive month of sub-300,000 filings after 20 months above it - a promising signal for the housing market in Georgia and nationwide. It's also noteworthy that each of the 10 most foreclosure-heavy states showed fewer foreclosures in June 2011 as compared to June 2010, led by Florida's 54% decline. Florida is one of 4 states on the leading edge of foreclosure activity since 2007. The other 3 states performed similarly well in June:...

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32545640 As home buyers in the Apex area , we tend to research homes a lot. We look at square footage; at upgrades; at landscaping; at community statistics; and, at every other "number" on which we can get our hands. But those are just statistics. What about the home's "feel"?  In this 5-minute piece from NBC's The Today Show, you'll learn a dozen complementary home-shopping techniques to help you review and evaluate a home for purchase. Each is focused on findings you won't see listed on a website. For example, instead of scheduling your second showing for the same time of day as your first one, revisit a home during an "opposite" time. if you originally saw the home in daylight, go see it at nighttime. If you first saw a home on the weekend, go see it durin...

Mortgage markets worsened last week as Wall Street's renewed optimism pushed equities to their best one-week gain in 2 years. The change in  sentiment was bad news for rate shoppers, however, as investors pored into stocks at the expense of bonds. Last week, for the first time since February, mortgage rates rose 5 days in a row. By the time bond markets closed for the 3-day weekend, conforming fixed mortgage rates in Florida had climbed to their worst levels since mid-May. Mortgage rates are now at 7-week highs. The biggest reason for last week's mortgage rate turnaround is that lawmakers in Greece approved a national austerity plan. Reaching an accord on spending cuts and tax increases was a necessary step for the nation-state to avoid defaulting on its debt and falling into bankruptcy...
