I am sure if you are reading this blog then you have been keeping up with the market and do not need a quick synopsis of what has been happening over the past 3 years.  Realtors as well as Sellers have been struggling and hoping for better days; the buyers, well are just popping popcorn watching the show. First off, let me say that I totally understand why SOME buyers are hesitant on pulling the trigger.  There is not one week that goes by when I am just in a casual conversation when someone says "I can't imagine why it's so slow for you guys, the rates are low and prices are low...buyers are crazy not to buy now".  True and not true.  The fact of the matter is rates and prices are low, but in general a lot of people are unemployed and if they are employed they are shaking in their boot...

Unless you have been living in a shell and have not turned on the TV in the past 3 or so years you are well aware that America as well as the rest of the world has been subject to a major downturn in the overall economy.  Experts....if there are any in the economic field claim that downturns occur every twenty years or so and it usually has a catalyst behind it.....this one was the housing market. This downturn though in my opinion was spurred by GREED...nothing more nothing less.  When thoroughly examined and broken down to where it is explained in layman's terms, you seem to notice that it all goes back to the same theory.....if it seems to good to be true...it is;  hence people buying homes with no job or credit is basically what happened.  Though this is WAY too complicated for me t...

HUD released revised North Carolina FHA Loan Limit today.  For 2009, FHA loan limits will now be the higher of 2008 limits or new 2009 limits released in late December. What that means for you?  If you are in one of the areas like Raleigh or Wilmington where the 2009 loan limits were decreased your loan limits are now restored to 2008 levels.   Good news for those markets!

VideoAd by Mixpo   At Christmas time I had an opportunity to attend a wonderful Realtor event at Brighton Forest hosted by Juan Leclair and Betty Sue Taylor.   The food was fabulous and they even gave out It's a Good Life DVD's and Christmas ornaments. Brighton Forest has been incredibly successful selling 44 homes in 2008, and ranked 12th in all the Triangle MLS new home communities for the number of closings they had for the year. I know I'll be taking my clients in this price range to Brighton Forest.  This community is comprised of all custom homes and got started in May 2007.  The community has really taken shape and homes are still selling briskly.  I know because I have a resale home in the same zip code that is competing with this neighborhood.  City:  Fuquay Varina, North Caro...

It happens everywhere; for the most part.  Development.  With development comes a few things hard to ignore, like the sudden scampering of animals; namely deer, the new homes right next to an old abandoned farmhouse, maybe some fishing ponds that look out of place, but the one thing you may notice or may NOT notice at first; is grave sites.  In the South...it was commonplace to bury family members on the farmstead (which is a cool term for family land).  Some sites found can date back to the 1700's and those parcels of land can be forgotten by family members over time believe it or not.  Recently in Wake County developers have been discovering more grave sites as they start clearing land for new subdivisions.  At first sites could be hard to see because tomb stones weren't always the pr...

Many concerned future home-buyers and sellers first question when deciding to buy or sell is can I do it myself?  What will it cost?  What is the first step?  How much should I list for or offer to purchase a home?  All of these are legitimate questions and most have very simple or very complicated answers depending on your knowledge of the field. In North Carolina(laws vary per state) most buyers will hire a Buyer's Agent to represent them in a transaction.  In most cases the seller pays the commission so for the most part you as a buyer would not pay anything; and with representation you get just that....someone who is knowledgeable and can advise you on what happens step by step in the process while making sure you don't pay too much for a new home.  If you have an exclusive buyer's ...
