homes for sale in wake forest nc: Dear Wells Fargo... Congratulations! You Bought a House for $8,000 less than offered! - 01/10/12 02:58 PM
What is really sad about this? It happens ALOT! Sellers find themselves in a short sale situation with ACTIVE offers on the table and the "big" banks are still pushing through with Foreclosures. I have both buyers and sellers ask me "Why"? I wish I had a reasonable answer or even an answer that made sense......I just don't. None of us do. You can be sure that the home in Jennifer's story below though will end up on the market at a lower value and contribute to the declining values of its surrounding neighborhood.....SAD! Incredibly sad! Via Jennifer Prestwich Your (4 comments)

homes for sale in wake forest nc: How Much Will It Cost To Sell My Wake Forest NC Home? - 11/21/11 04:10 PM
Both buyers and sellers of Real Estate have closing costs associated with the transfer of real estate. Each pays something different and as a top Wake Forest NC Real Estate Agent it is my job to be sure that PRIOR to closing I provide either of them (depends on who I represent) their estimated closing costs. In the case of a home seller that comes in the form of Seller Net Proceeds. While I can not give exact figures for what closing costs are my years of experience do allow me to be very accurate in estimates. So, if you are (24 comments)

homes for sale in wake forest nc: What is an Absorption Rate and How Does It Affect You? - 08/03/11 02:37 PM
Many times when I create the monthly market reports I reference the Absorption Rate. On listing appointments I mention the Absorption Rate and even use it to assist me with my Competitive Market Analysis. An Absorption Rate is a great indicator of what is happening in a local real estate market.An Absorption Rate quite simply is the supply of homes that are on the market. For instance, if there is an Absorption Rate of 8 is would mean that should NO other homes be listed it would take 8 months for the currently listed homes to sell or to be "absorbed" (53 comments)
