Prices and average days on market in Whispering Pines, NC are currently holding steady, the percentage of list to sold price is holding steady. Compared to the fourth quarter of 2007 sales volume has remained steady. The current level of inventory compared to units sold is creating a higher than normal absorption rate.  The high absorption rate signifies that Whispering Pines is in a buyer's market.   Note:  Absorption rate is used to follow market trends.  It is the number of weeks it will take to sell current inventory at the rate of present sales. Absorption rates can change rapidly due to seasonal adjustments. More than 7 months of inventory signifies a buyer's market. 5 to 7 months is a neutral market. Less than 5 months is a seller's market Linda Breeding 910-690-8368 www.RealEsta...

The dining room at Whispering Pines Country Club is now being managed by the Ironwood Cafe and it's owner, Vince Continenza.  The restaurant is now called Woody's and they are doing a great job.  The menu is similar to Ironwood, except for the fact that there is a lot more "comfort food" available at Woody's - and it's excellent.  We ate there tonight and the service was just as good as the food.  They had a pretty good sized crowd.  Whispering Pines finally has a fine dining restaurant after all these years.  I highly recommend the trip out to WPCC to have dinner at Woody's.  Call 910-949-3000 for reservations and to make sure they are open.  I am not sure about their hours, although I know that they are open on Friday and Saturday nights in addition to some other nights of the week.  ...

If you live in or around Whispering Pines, you may have seen the sign for Lula's just a couple of doors down from the Subway.  Lula and her brother John operate the restaurant, which serves "home cooking" like meatloaf, baked chicken, vegetables and all kinds of 'comfort food".  It is very affordable and you can dine in or take out and enjoy a great meal in the comfort of your own home.  It is very conveniently located and is a lot quicker than driving into Pinehurst or Southern Pines.  So, give Lula's a try if you haven't already.  And, don't forget that Lula's delicious soup is available at the Fresh Market in Southern Pines.  I am always happy to fill you in about life in and around Whispering Pines, so visit us at http://www.mcdevitttownandcountry.com or just give me a call at 910.6...

The Whispering Pines area is experiencing a slight buyer's market. The Whispering Pines Village limits include the subdivisions of Whispering Pines, Whispering Woods, Whispering Winds, Princess Gate, Royal Woods Way, Arrowstone and Newberry Ridge. There is significant new construction in Whispering Pines which has helped hold the overall average prices up.  Queens Cove and Village of Blue Farm are subdivisions close to the Village of Whispering Pines. Average sold prices have decreased slightly in these areas. There was one new construction home that sold for over the asking price which pushed the sold to list price percentage to 100%. The other homes in the area had a sold to list price of 98%. Linda Breeding 910-690-8368 www.RealEstateInPinehurst.com

I love it when I give my mailing address to someone over the phone. I get to the city and say Whispering Pines.  Invariably, it elicits some kind of reaction, particular if the phone center is onshore, about how pretty, or peaceful or pleasant that sounds.  I want to tell you-they don't know the half of it.  Whispering Pines, North Carolina has to be one of world's best places to live.  Originally conceived as a golf community, much of it meanders around now three golf courses, and eight, or maybe it's nine, lakes.  Residents who live on the lakes are permitted to draw irrigation water from the lakes, part of the original plan.  For the most part the landscaping is well established, which allows for gorgeous drives during azalea/dogwood season in the spring, and plenty of shady strolls ...

Great news - there is a Harris Teeter Grocery Store being built near the intersection NC Hwy 22 and Airport Road.  For those of us who live in the Whispering Pines vicinity, this is what we have been waiting for so that we can enjoy upscale grocery shopping right at the edge of Whispering Pines.  Right now, we have to drive into Aberdeen or to Carthage to get to the closest grocery shopping.  I think our real estate values will increase as a result of this added convenience.  If you are interested in Whispering Pines NC real estate or horse farms in Moore County NC or at the fields, an equestrian community not far from Whispering Pines, just give me call or visit our web site at: http://www.mcdevitttownandcountry.com.  Local number is 910-693-7901 and our toll free number is 800-788-8814.

Maybe it's just us water signs, but for me, there is no substitute for waking up and looking out at my little piece of Thagard Lake in Whispering Pines.  Work keeps me too busy to take advantage of it as much as I would like to, but just watching our neighborhood Great Blue Heron, as I brush my teeth and he fishes for his breakfast,  fills me up.  Every day I see houses I like better than mine (don't we all?) but then I look out the windows of those houses and see a yard, a neighbor, a golf course, and no water.  Nope this one won't do--my lake view starts and ends my days with serenity, beauty, and a wonderful sense of contentment.  Let me help you find your perfect waterfront home--I have one listed that I absolutely love.  In fact I think about renting mine and buying this one all th...
