Buy, Sell, or TRADE - 08/29/08 09:12 AM
With the current economy the way it is, and I'm not saying it's all bad, especially in the Charlotte region, the greatest difficulty we are having, isn't finding buyers for our product, but finding buyers for theirs. We are doing well on the traffic side, and getting interested, qualified buyers, but they all need to sell the home they have first. This is presenting a new alternative to our builders, and that is people interested in trading up. At Park Creek, our custom homes run from about $525,000 to $675,000. These are the new home prices, with some resales coming in (1 comments)
Let It Rain - 08/27/08 01:03 PM
Over the last couple of years, it has been hard to keep the upscale appearance of Park Creek to the standard we had hoped for. Due to water restrictions and above average heat last year, we have been working with the added rains and cooler temperatures this year to get it back to where it needs to be.

Unlike the bleach expamle, I fully recognize the opportunity to build a cleaner, more energy effecient, more environmentally friend home or development. From the overall development, to the finishing touches on the home, building Green is said to provide the added marketable touch (10 comments)
For Every Government Program There Is A Government Problem - 08/19/08 04:12 PM
It seems our national government is doing what it can in an effort to assist the economy whether it is the stimulus package from earlier this year, or the newest effort with the first time buyer tax credits. However, with every effort made by the national government, our local government, at least in this area, seem to be doing all they can to thwart the development efforts. Now I don't claim to understand the thought process behind some of the programs our national government comes up with, however, at least the intent is clear and for the most part their efforts (3 comments)
