First of all, you get a larger discount on the home you’re buying than the ‘hammering’ you take on the home you are selling.  The gap between the two home prices narrows.  If you own a ‘formerly’ $100k home that sells for $90k due to a 10% market decline, then the $200k home you wanted to move up to has dropped to $180k.  The result is the price differential dropping by $10,000!  Many times the more expensive home drops by an even greater percentage, making your savings larger.   Secondly, when the economy is in distress, the cost of mortgage money usually declines.  This allows you to finance the larger home purchase for a much lower cost.  A 1% drop in mortgage rates gives you 11% more home for the same payment!   Thirdly, I have always maintained that real estate is a ‘10-year play’....

I had a new visitor to our website the other day. Typically these are new buyers, sellers or renters for the Union County, NC and surrounding areas. This time it was a business owner asking if I could feature them in a new blog post about consignment stores in the Union County area.  It was my first request from a local business and I was honored.  Here We Grow Again Consignment store is locally owned and operated in Waxhaw, NC. Waxhaw Consignment Store  I was in Waxhaw, NC a couple days later showing one of my buyers a short sale home and decided that I would kill 2 birds with 1 stone. I walked into the Here We Grow Again Consignment Store and introduced myself to girl that was working that day. I told her that I was there to take some video and pictures to feature their company on our...

Saturday started very sweet. This morning the kids all got up to the smell of my making them waffles. I decided to do something a little different since today was the opening day of Middle School football. I made the 3 musketeer's waffles but I made them a little special. Being that I have a daughter, I made her waffle a little girly, but the boys got "Allstars" since they love sports so much. We went to the football game with high hopes that our Piedmont Panthers would win against the Cuthbertson Cavaliers, but that just was not the case today. We ended up losing 0-6. It was a hard fought battle, but in the end and one long play, our balls were handed their first loss of the season.  After the defeating afternoon, I decided that it was my job to make everyone feel a little better about...

If the corny title to this blog post didn't get your attention, I think that the details behind it will. Mike Moulton of Bee Home Solutions, Inc. in Charlotte, NC discusses the pros and cons of the government programs surround HAMP (Home Affordable Modification Program) and the HAFA (Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives) program. HAFA is designed for homeowners who have applied to HAMP for assistance but have had no success with their loan modification program. To participate in HAFA, homeowners must still meet HAMP’s eligibility criteria (principal residence, first-lien mortgage, serious delinquency, unpaid balance under $729,750, and a mortgage payment over 31 percent of gross income).

This past weekend I was out with a buyer who has been preapproved up to $350,000. Our real estate team set them up a search last week and they narrowed the over 150 homes to a list of 7. Some were not in the right area, some were to small, some had vinyl siding and some were just not their style. I am most happy when a buyer takes homes off of their list because that makes it easier for me to determine what they find most important in their next home.   Ok, back to the topic of this post. One of the homes that remained on their list was a home in Chatelaine in Waxhaw. The gated neighborhood boasts homes valued at well over $1,000,000.   This particular listing that we went to see was an unfinished home. The heated living area that will be heated once the HVAC is completely installed is ...
