For those residents of Whispering Pines, North Carolina who were not able to hear our radio broadcast March 21, 2010 dedicated solely to the care and maintenance of Septic Systems in Whispering Pines, North Carolina, (WEEB - Talk Radio 990 on "All Things Real Estate"), here is the first of seven short articles summarizing the most important points we discussed that morning about septic systems. Every home in Whispering Pines, North Carolina has its own private wastewater septic system which consists of a watertight container (usually a precast reinforced concrete tank although it may be made of plastic or fiberglass) connected to a drainfield.  When properly designed and maintained, it is a both a cost effective and environmentally friendly way to dispose of wastewaters produced in a ho...

Contrary to national statistics, homes sales in Whispering Pines, NC over the last sixty days has been on fire!  Inventory of homes on the market have reached new lows for a number of months, and several properties which have been on the market for considerable periods of time have also gone under contract.  It is an enviable time for this area, and we are suggesting to those home owners who may be thinking of selling but have hesitated given general market conditions that they may wish to consider placing their homes on the market at this time.  Here is our marketing piece:

North Carolina has some of the toughest traffic laws in the country. For example, if you are convicted of speeding 83 mph in a 65 mph zone, you will find that your license will be suspended in NC and your state as well, if you’re an out-of-state-driver.  I have no problem with tough laws, as long as they apply to everyone equally… I do take issue with being falsely accused. Especially when my accuser is someone who has sworn an oath to uphold the law… Shouldn’t that also include being truthful?  Officer Miranda, No. 227; with the Village of Whispering Pines Police Department has falsely accused me of "Failing to stop at a duly erected stop sign”  Were the charge true, I would have a problem accepting responsibility for my action, or inaction in this instance.  Innocent until proven guil...

Whispering Pines, a growing town just north or Southern Pines and northeast of Pinehurst, offers home searchers many moderately priced new and resale home options.  The town has an ideal location.   The area has a somewhat rural feel to it, but it is very close to the main shopping areas of Pinehurst, Southern Pines and Aberdeen.   Harris Teeter, Food Lion and other strip mall stores will be locating in the area very soon off Highway 22, making shopping for the essentials even more convenient.  Many military families gravitate to Whispering Pines because of the relatively short commute to the Fayetteville-Fort Bragg area.    You will find a healthy inventory of resale homes and a growing number of newer and "under construction" homes.  Below are some convenient links (with short profile...

     Waterfront properties continue to command premium prices throughout Moore County.  Of the 813 single family homes sold in 2008, only 49 were located on the water.  Of those, 25 sold for $400,000 or more, and only 8 sold for under $300,000.  Ten of these properties were located in Whispering Pines, and together commanded a median sold price of $370,000 and an average sold price of $384,029.      We are delighted to bring on the market a home located on one of the most desirable waterfront lots on Thagard Lake in Whispering Pines.  The residence at 66 S. Lakeshore Drive has been owned by the current sellers since 1992 and substantial upgrades to the property have been made continuously over the years. Please check out the interactive floor plan and virtual tour of this home on our we...

Active Homes on the Market in Whispering Pines, NC 2008      As of January 2, 2009, there were 75 Single Family Homes on the market in the greater Whispering Pines area.  The price of these homes ranged from a low of $79,900 to a high of $474,000.  The median asking price was $304,900 and the average asking price was $293,921.         The number of active Single Family Homes on the market over the last 12 months has fluctuated from a low of 70 in February, 2008 to a high of 98 in May, 2008.  This number is dynamic as homes move from one status category to another (active, pending, sold), and should be looked at in a general fashion rather than viewed too literally.   In summary, the number of homes on the market in WP at any one time has not fluctuated dramatically over the past 12 mont...
