On November 30 the $8,000. Federal Tax Credit for first time homebuyers will expire.  This stimulus has helped the real estate and building industries the last several months, as it has allowed markets to reduce some of their inventories, and brought action to buy from many who were sitting on the fence to see what happens with interest rates and prices.  The problem was the limited scope of the program.  I've written previously that this stimulus should have been offered to any buyers regardless of of their status, and the price range of the home purchase (as long as it primary residence, or home used by a family member, such as inlaw or dependent in college).  This would have relieved much more inventory and at fairer prices to the sellers, allowed people who wish, or need, to relocat...

I bet most of you are like me and a little conflicted over the mixed messages regarding the home real estate market conditions.  I stated not long ago that we are supposed to be in a super buyers market, and that, literally, should be the case.  However, it is not really a buyer's market unless buyers are buying. It is true we have seen an upturn in sales contracts (pendings) and closings the last couple of months.  This was to be expected due to the tax incentives passed down by the Fed for "first time homebuyers".  These were defined as anyone who has not owned a home in three years or more.  They have made up the bulk of the gains the market has made this year. Smoke and mirrors?  Possibly.  The tax incentive could have been extended to anyone buying a home in the year 2009, regardle...

Waxhaw and Marvin make an excellent address to call home. If location is king in real estate, then towns of Waxhaw and Marvin use their prime locations to their supreme advantage. Located just over the Union County border southeast of Charlotte, these towns are a big draw for people venturing out of the South Charlotte real estate market or relocating from various parts of the country. The draw to these towns stem from three very good reasons; it's location, excellent schools, and low, low taxes (just shy of half that which you would pay in Charlotte)!  Here, you are more apt to find homes with 6,000 square feet, than to find homes with 2500 square feet. Most of the homes are relatively new, as are the schools. The area really expanded its growth upon the heels of South Charlotte and t...
