lake norman real estate: Excellent "Curb Appeal" Is So Important! - 10/18/17 07:19 PM
It is thought among the real estate industry that nearly all home buyers make their buying decision before they even get out of the car. They either immediately fall in love or fall out of love. If they love it enough from first site they will walk through the home to validate their initial feelings.  Therefore curb appeal is very crucial.  Remember the old saying "You never get a second chance to make a first impression".

lake norman real estate: A Few Good Tips To Deter Theft While Selling Your Home - 10/01/17 07:21 PM
 
A few tips to ward off robbery while selling your home ...
Keep home and outdoors looking fresh and maintained in all seasons.  Make sure there are no newspapers laying around, mail and packages aren't left to pile up on the doorstep. Also, make sure shrubbery is well maintained and left to grown out of control because this is an exellent place for burglars to hide behind them between the strub and your home.  The power of lighting is important.  Criminals are much less likely to break into a well lit entrance or home versus a dimly or poorly lit residence. … (0 comments)

lake norman real estate: Great Home Buying Tips! - 09/25/17 08:19 PM
 
Make sure your Credit is in orderPrior to your house hunting adventure, get copies of your credit report. Make sure the facts are correct, and fix any problems you discover.
Stay within your Realistic Price RangeThe rule of thumb is that you can buy housing that runs about two-and-one-half times your annual salary. It's best to not be too strapped in case something crazy comes up (which always does!)
Try to have at least 20% for Down PaymentThere are a variety of public and private lenders with a variety of options but most require at least 20% Down.
