I have lived in the Charlotte area for more than 20 years and the majority of my life which is very rare for most residents of the area. I grew up in the town of Matthews where my parents still live today. The area has developed into a gorgeous town and the changes are astounding when I remember what it looked like when we first arrived in 1987! During college, I got married and made a new life for myself in Monroe which is located in Union County. We lived there for over 4 years and really enjoyed the friends we made in the community and the things there were to do so close to home.  I have most recently become a resident of Waxhaw. As a small child, we used to go out to Waxhaw to visit the JAARs Center for field trips with school or to go camping with friends. At that time, we would A...

I have to tell you, when it comes to new homes there are two decent size bulders I love. SP is one. (and it is not the builder I currently live in, although I would say they are OK, middle of the road). I do love Standard Pacific homes.  So does J.D. Power and Associates, you know they review organizations and rank them according to surveys and such! Some communities are: The Reserve At Gold Hill Cureton Beckett This Weekend Only: 10/22 to 10/24 So if you are in town, and need a REALTOR, they are giving some goolish rates, so don't be spooked! You may just want to see some Re-sales too, then you will need a REALTOR, and not just a Sales Associate sitting at one of the New Home Models. Here is a link to the communities!

Have you spent years renting homes or apartments and have grown tired of paying all that rent money to someone else? If so, then it might be your time to consider purchasing a home, and keeping that cash for yourself. However, you do need to ensure that you are prepared on more than one level before jumping into the equity market. There are many financial considerations to make note of before you start looking for a home. But, if you can arrange your finances into a sensible plan and secure a mortgage then this can ultimately be the most rewarding purchase you have ever made or will make. Finance plays a huge role in the decision to purchase your first home. This is to be expected as if you are purchasing your first home you will not likely have a few hundred thousand dollars sitting ar...

  Now that the baseball championships are upon us, I thought you would enjoy some advice I've gleaned from two quotes of an outstanding 1897 baseball player.   ‘Wee’ Willie Keeler is one of the smallest men to ever play Major League baseball.  At 5'4" and only 140 pounds, he was a fascinating player.  He perfected the ‘Baltimore chop’, where he would hit the ball hard into the ground just in front of the plate.  The ball would hop so high that he would be on first base before it came back to earth!   In 1897, Keeler, a right fielder for the Baltimore Orioles, was on a hitting rampage.  He wound up the year hitting .432.  When Abe Yager of the Brooklyn Eagle asked how he did it, Keeler famously answered, “Simple.  I keep my eyes clear and hit 'em where they ain't; that's all."   So what ...

Waxhaw NC Real Estate Market Report—July-September 2010 How did the Waxhaw NC real estate market fare in the third quarter of 2010 and how does 2010 market activity compare with 2009? Average sales prices in the Waxhaw NC real estate market rebounded during the third quarter of 2010.  The single family home average sales price was up 6% over the second quarter and up 3% over the 2009 average sales price.  There were no townhome or condominium sales in Waxhaw during the second quarter but the third quarter average sales price was off just 3% from the 2009 average sales price.  The number of single family sales decreased about 30% from the second quarter.  The increased pricing and decreased number of sales most likely reflect the end of the federal tax credit for first time home buyers a...

  There are three common misconceptions consumers have about the real estate market right now:   (1) People can’t get a loan,   (2) Affordability is out of reach, and   (3) Consumers should wait for rates to go lower.   The truth of the matter, however, is that money is available for those who meet basic requirements, affordability today is better than it has been in several years, and interest rates are historically low. There is also a load of inventory – from new homes to existing homes to foreclosures. This all adds up to the home-buying opportunity of a lifetime!   In the not-to-distant past, sellers controlled the market, but we’re now in a buyer’s market – a great opportunity for buyers to negotiate a favorable price and other concessions from the seller. If you’re qualified to b...

Here is the Solution! If you are caught in the catch-22 situation of your buyer needing repairs made to the home prior to closing, and the seller (Bank!) having no resources to make the repairs, here is what you do:      1.  Get a firm estimate of the cost to perform the repairs.  Make sure the contractor(s) understand that they will have to wait a week to get paid.      2.  Negotiate that figure into the purchase price so that all parties are satisfied with the seller's 'net'.      3.  In the Offer to Purchase, have the seller agree to do the repairs AFTER you get a commitment letter from the lender.  The commitment letter should have no conditions on it except the completion of the repairs.      4.  The contractor completes the repairs 7 days prior to closing.      5.  The appraiser ...
