How important is a bathtub for future resale?It's 2024 and for the past several years we've had this exact question. To be honest, there was a time when bathtubs were an essential part of the primary bathroom. Even if you didn't want it, you would have been wise to have one for future resale.Times have changed and what we've noticed is some people feel bathtubs are a waste of space, use too much water, are a glorified towel holder, or one more thing to clean. The folks in this camp have rebelled and are saying "no" to bathtubs. We hear this when we show homes and see their choices in new construction homes and in bathroom remodels. As an experienced Real Estate expert, I have clients who absolutely don't want a bathtub. I also have clients who will not purchase a home without one. I fin...

Cary NC - What's not to love?What's not to love about Cary? Everybody... well a lot of people would like to live in Cary NC. With growth comes good and bad, happy and sad. Let's talk about both.My backstory:We moved to the great state of North Carolina in 1997 and settled in Cary. We knew early in our marriage that we wanted to move to NC if or when the opportunity arose. One day my husband came home and asked how I'd feel about moving to Raleigh NC. I was pretty excited even though I had never been to this area. He flew to Raleigh for a job interview and checked it out. If you recall, we didn't have search engines back in 1997 like we do today. So, when he came home and told me about the area, I had to go on his findings. That and an article I read about SAS and Cary on a Delta flight ...

What you need to know about moving to Cary NCCary is the town that won't stop!Where to search for Cary Homes We moved to Cary in the mid 90s when people were just beginning to hear about this adorable quaint town which is a suburb of Raleigh NC. The population at that time was about 80k +/-. I first heard about the town when I read an article about SAS headquarters on a Delta flight magazine. My husband & I had visited NC before we had kids and decided we would move here if we ever had an opportunity. Just a few years later a job opportunity came up for him in Cary. We wasted no time selling our home and packing up to move to this lovely town. How it started:We settled in West Cary when Hwy 55 was a 2 lane road. People thought we were out in the middle of nowhere. There were still tobac...

Source: Corelogic Nationally, homes with negative equity was 4.7% in the first quarter of 2018. 640,000 borrowers moved into a positive equity position from the 1st quarter of 2017 to the 1st quarter of 2018 Mortgaged equity increased by 1 trillion from the 1st quarter of 2017 to the 1st quarter of 2018, which is an annual increase of 13.3%. In five years home owner equity doubled. I remember joining Active Rain back in 2009 when people were struggling due to negative equity and real estate transactions were scarce. I had the opportunity to make a lot of friends here!  Unfortunately my previous company was frightened by the amount of banks being fined for online information not being properly disclosed so I was asked to take down my AR blog. I can respect their position.My current compa...
