Buying a new home before selling your current home is a real possibility in 2021. As the real estate market has heated up, deposits are increasing, so to buy a home in the Triangle area will require you to have a higher amount of cash upfront when you make your offer instead of most of your down payment being paid at closing. Buyers are basically paying most of their down payment to the seller as a non-refundable deposit at the time the offer is accepted.Get an equity line on your current homeIf your down payment is mostly the equity in your current home, 401K, or the stock market, or if you are simply short on cash at the moment, one of the easiest ways to get cash to buy another property is to get an equity line on your current home.Getting an equity line, also known as a HELOC, is fa...

Does anyone ever check on you, to see how your journey in life is going?  Do you have others who check on you from time to time?  I call others to check on others, from time to time.  If they pick up and chat, that is great.  If, they do not pick up to chat, that is fine as well.  I just call others to let him or her know that he or she is in my thoughts and prayers.  I do not call anyone to sell anything. There are people that I do not call anymore who have used me and taken advantage of my kindness and I have had to set boundaries.  Why do people not pick up the phone like they used to?  Probably because people are tired of sales calls and tired of all the asking of donating this or that.  I get it.  There are days that I want my peace as well.  We are all on a journey.  Some feel so ...

Have you ever been without power?  I am sure we all have, at one time or another.  I have learned to always be prepared.  One of the questions, I like to ask my client for inspections is, Do you have power?  Is this new construction?  Have you ever been to a building that did not have power and you needed electricity or power to run tools or instruments?  Better be prepared.  Always be prepared for the unexpected.  There is nothing worse than going to a job and realizing, there is no power for air pumps for Mold Sampling, High-Intensity Lighting, and other things that need electricity. I have many forms of backup power but this one above is my favorite.  It is called the Jackery.  I can plug it in and get the electricity that is mobile to take with me from a power supply before I leave ...

As I walked on my back deck today, this is what I saw.Sometimes, it is the simple things in life, that we see and experience, that brings the breath of fresh air to us.The birds, the rabbits, the squirrels, the deer, the owls at night, and more.  As I look back on life and at life, I realize that perhaps, nature and showing my love for nature, was something I needed to get back to.  I have bucks and doe's in my area, where I live.  You would think that animals would fear people and some do.  Perhaps, I am learning that I need to get back to nature and give back to nature and show more understanding with nature and give back more than I am currently giving to nature.   What was this deer thinking as she looked at me?  I have no idea but maybe to say thank you for the ear of corn I left o...

 How many of you are noticing an increase in anxiety since 2019, with people?  Are people getting annoyed and are people getting more annoyed, from what you have seen?  I see some people having very little patience and I see and hear of others snapping.  People are stressed out and they want things to go back to the way, things were.Who thinks things, will ever go back to the way, they were?  People do not like the change from what I have seen.  Change requires work.  Sometimes, change requires much work and sacrifice.  Are people wanting to change their lifestyle and change the way he or she acts?  We are certainly finding out.  Are we not?Since I have been in business since 1987.  I have never seen so many people on edge.  What are some things that you do or are helpful?

Three Proven Tips for Buying a Home Sight UnseenYes, these are trying time for home buyers, and not just for those looking for a Charlotte home. Throughout the country, hopeful buyers face shrinking inventories, rising prices, and sellers unwilling to negotiate terms or prices.But it’s not completely one-sided. Interest rates remain low, and buyers and their agents have learned how to cope in an historic seller’s market. Thanks to a robust economy, the US housing market continues to sail along, as buyers respond by making multiple offers, many over the asking price, and even making offers on homes sight unseen.What?It’s not as crazy as it might sound. As the housing market heats up, buyers have to use every advantage to snag a house faster than the competition. And making an attractive ...
