Don't bother calling me at the office on Tuesday before 9:30 or so. I'm usually dashing up and down the aisles of my favorite local flea market, on a quest for the freshest produce, the perfect plant for that bare spot in the garden - or the ideal gift for my latest mountain home buyer. I always find SOMETHING I can't live without at the Tuesday morning flea market. It's down by the river, just off Hwy 64 West in Murphy, North Carolina. But this week's market featured an item that's to die for, as the saying goes. It was an honest to (5 comments)

This is an out of state company that comes into town and sells 40 or 50 lots in a subdivision (1 comments)
What the Numbers Won't Tell You - The Story Behind the 2010 Mid-Year Real Estate Market Report for Murphy NC and Cherokee County - 07/08/10 04:59 PM
Home sales in Cherokee County, North Carolina have remained at the same level for three years. Land sales have dropped 42% in the last two years. True...or false? If you use the statistics from the Mountain Lakes Board of Realtors, those are the conclusions you'd draw. But property listed and sold on the local MLS only tells part of the story. According to this week's Cherokee Scout, 11 lot sales were recorded by the Register of Deeds in one local subdivision back in April. Prices ranged from $19,000-50,000. But when I cross-checked these sales with the data fom our MLS, I realized that none of these (0 comments)
