We had a beautiful snowfall here in Pinehurst last night!  It was a perfect backdrop while we watched the opening ceremonies for the Winter Games.  One good thing about the Sandhills, we can say "Here today, Gone tomorrow"!!!  The snow is already starting to fall off the tree limbs this morning as I peer out the window while I drink my coffee.  I guess I better hurry up and go outside and build a snowman before it's GONE.

Actually, one month into 2010, it is good news that there are 1,001 single family homes on the market in Moore County.  We are still running 10-15% over normal.  In this market, that's pretty good compared to other areas of the country.  The excess inventory is dominated by homes that are in need of updating and by homes in higher price ranges.  We are hoping for a good selling season through the Spring and Summer while interest rates remain low.  It is a great time to buy real estate in the Pinehurst area.  For more info, visit us on the web at: http://www.mcdevitttownandcountry.com or call us at 800-788-8814.

Pinehurst Course No. 6 was ranked 95 in the Top 100 Courses in North Carolina. The course opened in 1979, was renovated 2005 and reopened as a championship course. Renovations by Tom Fazio have increased shot values, developed all new putting greens and rebunkered the entire course - making it a strong addition to the championship golf set at Pinehurst. You'll find the terrain different here - rolling hills make for a test from the tee box. The back nine is one the most difficult anywhere. One thing rings true - it continues to be a favorite for those who love Fazio designs.
