Waxhaw NC has been a great place to buy a new home since the late 1990s.  During the real estate boom of the 2000s, developers opened neighborhood after neighborhood in and around the town.  The great recession put a halt to development of new communities and many builders abandoned neighborhoods where they could no longer sell homes at the inflated prices of the boom years.  Construction came to a halt and a number of neighborhoods remained unfinished. The builders are back in 2012.  They are able to purchase lots now at very reasonable prices and pass that lower pricing on to the buyers of their homes. Here is information about two Waxhaw neighborhoods where builders have re-entered the marketplace and are offering new homes again. Lawson Lennar Homes will develop a new section of thi...

If you’re like me you’re always on the lookout for new property management solutions, ideas that will make your property management run more efficiently and less expensively. In today’s property management training article I’d like to share ten property management solutions I’ve personally used, along with tips on which worked well and which not so well. Set The Right Expectations Property management solution #1 is to set the right expectations with your investors, your tenants and your vendors. This also falls into the time management category. I remember a long time ago somebody once told me, “If you don’t manage your time somebody else will manage it for you.” How true. If you’re working with building owners, set the right expectations for your weekly or monthly reports, distribution...

Lawson, a Charlotte neighborhood where history is preserved. Lawson doesn’t have historical houses.  It’s the land itself where Lawson lies among 500 acres of rolling woodlands that has a history.  In 1701, an English naturalist named John Lawson followed an ancient trail of the Waxhaw Indians to discover the area.  In the mid-1700s, a thriving settlement was located here where five roads met at Five Forks.  The land was also the site of a 19th century mill called Howard’s Mill. These historical sites are preserved in Lawson’s common areas, which encompass nearly a third of this master-planned community.  Miles of walking and hiking trails weave through the common areas for residents to enjoy.  The working water wheel and building of the community clubhouse evoke Howard’s Mill. Lawson r...
