  When choosing a real estate agent to list your home there are a lot of things to consider. For many people selling a property is as easy as calling an agent referred to them by a friend, or perhaps the agent who sold them the property. However, many times consumers forgot the selling agent or lost their contact info. Likewise, without doing some homework and asking some questions choosing a real estate agent to list your home can be a shot in the dark. Therefore, here are a few educated questions and suggestions you can ask your agent when thinking of listing your home for sale:   1)    What are the must-have qualifications, systems, and tools that a seller should look for in a REALTOR when listing their home for sale in Winston Salem? 2)    What are the typical terms and conditions t...

If you are like me, when it comes to searching for real estate it is best to have a map of homes for sale in Winston Salem. There are  a ton of sites that allow you search by bedrooms, bathroom, lot size etc. However what is the most important criteria in real estate? Location, location, location. It can be hard to find a map of homes for sale in Winston Salem. I admit it is even a bit hard to find on my own personal real estate website. That is why I create posts and links to get consumers directly to the information that want and search-able on a map of homes for sale. In many cases it is easy to pick out on the map where you work or where your friends homes are located. Then you can look at the map and see how far away the homes are that you might like to buy. I can tell you first ha...

Downtown Winston Salem has a lot to offer any patrons looking for a nice evening. Since I live and work near the downtown area of Winston Salem I have a few spots that I would like to mention. No matter what interest you have in visiting the downtown Winston Salem area you will find something you like, no doubt.  Personally I like a little bit of everything. The Mellow Mushroom is one of my favorite pizza and beer places. They have some unique pizzas and high octane beers and for me that makes this place a visit. Likewise, after indulging in all the calories taken in at Mellow Mushroom I go across the street to The Rush (now Gold's Gym).  Another must see stop in the Downtown Winston Salem area is Camino Bakery. This place is simply awesome. Tons of amazing baked goods, huge selection o...

There are a lot of people out there that are thinking of a career in real estate and the big question they have is about real estate agent salaries. The business of real estate is very unique with regards to compensation. Unlike most jobs you can base your income on an annual expected salary. However, in real estate you are typically self employed and your income varies on your production. Likewise, there are many factors that can effect your expected average salary as a real estate agent. The factors that determine the average salary of a real estate agent are: your production, company split, your business set up (LLC, sole proprietor, s-corp, partnership, etc), your price range, marketing expenses, and various other smaller items. In order to give you a real life example of the averag...

Selling a home in winter in the Winston Salem area has its pros and cons. While winter in Winston Salem is certainly not the same as winter in upstate New York, it can still deter sellers from listing until warmer weather. Most sellers (and many agents) will tell you that waiting until the spring market comes around is the best practice when it comes to selling your home. Meanwhile, we here at The Carolina Crew Realty team believe the exact opposite. The Winston Salem Multiple Listing System (MLS) and local stats show that housing inventory in the winter months is lower than the spring and summer markets. Therefore, if you have less competition on the market for sale would it not be best to get your home up for sale during the winter? Homes sell every day of the year in this country and...

Being on the go, sometomes I can't always take the time for a long sit-down meal. So, today, I wanted to share a few of the places where I like to grab a quick but quality meal.   Which Wich? Superior Sandwiches947 Hanes Mall Boulevard, Winston-Salem, NC 27103 Which Wich is a sub place with a unique twist, and my nephew, Ben, talks about this place all the time. Once you walk in, you'll notice a wall of brown paper bags. The bags are split into categories like Chicken, Italian, Classics, etc. Once you select your category and choose your bag, you pick up a marker and start building your sandwich: bread type, sauces, toppings, the works. When you're done you hand your bag to cashier and pay, and Which Wich puts your bag on a wire above the assembly line. The bag is slid down towards the ...
