Welcome to my Blog. My name is Jean-Paul Peron. I'm a REALTOR® with The Outer Banks Real Estate Company. My wife and I built our dream home and moved to Carova, a 10 mile stretch of non comercialized beach with no paved roads and home to the Corolla Wild Horses. Carova is an nincorporated community in Cuttituck County in the extreme northeast corner of North Carolina. Its three main neighborhoods of Swan Beach, North Swan Beach, and Carova Beach can only be accessed by four-wheel drive, boat, or (if you want to splurge) by helicopter since there are no paved roads connecting Carova to neighboring Corolla of Virginia. There is actually a fence at the state line to keep the vehicles from crossing into Virginia. Living this far from civilization and this close to the ocean is a blessing that sometimes comes with a price. I will try my best to be share both sides of the coin. J-P

As I go out into the community and talk with both troubled residents and potential sellers about their experiences with getting loan modifications, I am not only surprised at how many of them are getting declined but the reasons they are given. Here are the top 3 that I have heard so far.   1) Yo...
Attached is an email from the Director of the Corolla Wild Horse Fund. Each year as we struggle to find that achievable balance of man & wildlife incidents occur. Sometime they are truly accidents, sometimes they are truly intentional, and sometime we just cannot tell.  Please feel free to leave...
  Now a days everyone seems to have an opinion on what needs to be done (or not done) to pull us out of this housing crisis, and do it as fast as possible. I have heard a lot of them, but this one is so radical you can't help but love it. Read it over and give me your opinion.   This needs to go ...
