Market Report SEPT 2021 - How's the Real Estate Market in Providence Springs?    Providence Springs, being a community of only 128 homes, typically does not have a large selection of homes on the market - we've had low turnover in Providence Springs, year-after-year.  Some years, there are more relocation sellers than others and due to the pandemic, we are seeing a bit of a slow down in the relocation business this year than in normal years. The economy continues at a steady pace, as our Providence Springs market improvements continue to demonstrate.  If you're a buyer, interested in a fabulous, neighborly community on the NORTH side of Highway 51 in a great school zone, visit www.ProvidenceSpringsInfo.com for more information on this popular Charlotte luxury community.  We are confiden...

 The Challenge of Construction Labor ShortagesConstruction firms have long struggled to maintain an adequate work force, but COVID and underlying demographic trends have combined to intensify the problem. The workforce continues to age, so there’s a diminishing percentage of people willing and able to handle the demands of the job. Other complicating considerations are the federal unemployment benefits that have incentivized not returning to work, as well as the industry’s spotty record of providing health benefits. In July, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported some 300,000 unfilled positions in the construction industry.These factors tell us the lack of housing inventory is not going away any time soon. Buyer demand continues to expand, and home builders increasingly find themselves...

Motivational Monday - Work Balance on Labor DayAs I laboriously work for clients who are fighting to win a new home this lovely Labor Day, life/work balance is always an under-thought. Many of you know, I am a self-professed (and hubby-professed!) workaholic. While I have been working on that for several years, I believe this past year has helped me become more balanced. Labor unions set the standards in the mid-19th century for workers who now enjoy a 40-hour work week, minimum wage, sick leave, workers compensation, overtime pay, as well as child labor laws. The foundation was set to help create the most competitive workforce in the world — a workforce that made America the economic power it is today. Those laws are, today, being re-evaluated as studies have shown that employees who h...
