Yes I Want to Sell My House, Would You Like to See it 3 Weeks from Thursday?As a REALTOR® in the Hickory NC market, I do something that a lot of other agents may not do on a regular basis.  I call For Sale By Owner (FSBO) listings in my farm area (my specialty area, if you will).  Yes, I'd really like to list their home for them, but that's not the reason for my call.  I call because I want to know about every home for sale in my area.  That way, I'll know if something is out there that may fit what my buyer-client wants.But I've also run across what seems to be a common trend in FSBO sellers, at least in the Hickory real estate market it seems.  They don't seem to really want to sale their houses.  Or maybe, they just don't have the time.You see, when I call, I usually ask to see the p...

Way back in 1990, Al and Debbie Bandy, of Newton, NC, started cooking a Thanksgiving day meal for the community.  They served about 125 people that first year.  Today, with the help of volunteers, they expect to serve over 500 people.  And they deliver, too! The dinner is held every other year (and this is the year!) at First United Methodist Church, located at 300 North Main Ave, Newton, NC. Takeout is from 11:00 am to 12:00pm today and dine in is from 11:30am to 12:30pm today. So, who do they serve?  Anyone!  "It's for people who don't want to cook, can't afford it financially or don't have someone to eat with."  says Debbie. If you ever think that you can't make a difference, think about what this one family has done for their community on Thanksgiving.  You can make a difference!
