Should you wait for property values to rise before you sell your Chapel Hill or Durham NC Home and move up to that new home you've been admiring? The answer to this question is as much psychological as financial. Why? It's easy to see your home equity loss and not so easy to see someone else's equity loss. This question causes many people to sit on the side lines as historical low housing prices and mortgage rates pass by. In this interview, you will hear local expertConnie Shuping of Great Triangle Homes give a perspective that may persuade you it's time to get on with the home (and life) you would like...now. Just as Ted Sorenson crafted for John F. Kennedy - "A Rising Tide Raises All Boats," I will add, "a low tide lowers all boats, and housing prices." Let Let Me Know What You Think...

Have you seen the Geico commercial about how you’d have to be living under a rock not to know what’s going on? Same goes for real estate - sellers would have to be living under a rock not to know that there is something up in real estate.  In my experience, most sellers are NOT living under rocks. That’s why they call a professional when they are thinking about selling. They call us because they need an honest, forthright assessment of how their situation is affected by the contradictory headlines and media stories they are bombarded with daily. They call us because they want help, reliable help, with deciding how they should proceed.  They call us because they want the truth about what they are up against: in their neighborhoods, in their price ranges, in their market areas. They need ...

How lucky we are to live in the Carolinas! As we head into the Memorial Day weekend and my neighbors and I prepare to celebrate by grilling everything in sight; I know my friends at the beach and in the mountains are doing the same thing! Whether your view is a ligustrum bordered back yard in Carrboro, waves crashing on the beach at Topsail Island or a spectacular sunset over Grandfather Mountain in Blowing Rock, I’m right there with you, thankful every day that I am a Tarheel!     Speaking of friends and neighbors, I want you all to know, that I am lucky enough to be at a place in my career where using my 30 plus years of my experience and expertise in North Carolina real estate to help you understand exactly what is happening in our neighborhoods and towns is what I love doing best.  ...

Yesterday I had the pleasure to take a tour of this elegant hotel that displays strong tradition.  The Inn was built in 1924 and donated to UNC Chapel Hill in 1935.  The unique aspect of the rich history of this hotel is that all profits are used to support the university library! From the first step into the lobby I felt like I had stepped back in time.  This luxury hotel has everything from Italian marble in the bathrooms and North Carolina custom furniture and antiques to one of the most complete exercise facilities I have seen in a hotel. Another surprising aspect of this hotel is the "green" design.  The most recent renovation brought with it LED lighting throughout, recycle-able carpet and luxurious mattresses!  If you are visiting Raleigh on a house hunting trip, this hotel shoul...

Like any asset group, housing market values fluctuate up and down over time.  When values are down, it is a great time to buy.   A recent study shows that housing values are the most undervalued ever relative to income: http://www.linkedin.com/news?actionBar=&articleID=408690132&ids=0Ve38Rc38PcjgIcP4RdzgTcj4Qb3wPdPgOc30Nd2MSczkVdzoPcjgIczcNc3ASe30Q&aag=true&freq=weekly&trk=yiaag-44 This is especially true in our market, Durham-Chapel Hill, where we are seeing great buying opportunites in housing values yet continue to see job growth in Research Triangle Park.   Now is a great time to buy!   Call Domicile Realty today at 919-883-5500 to help you buy your next property!
