US House Prices Increase in 3rd Quarter! Charlotte, NC Market Steady - 11/25/09 08:56 AM
Looking for snippets of good news in the real estate market, I has happy to see that the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) just announced that US House prices increased .2% from the 2nd quarter of 2009 (seasonally adjusted). Over the past year, from the 3rd quarter of 2008, housing prices have declined by 3.8%. There was no change from the price index from August to September, 2009. Analysts at FHFA, while cautiously optimistic that this data could indicate a stabilization in the US housing market, also point out that high unemployment and a rise in mortgage payment delinquencies and foreclosures (2 comments)

It's the "Garage-Ma-Hal," Bill and Cindy Buchanan's garage-turned-Panther locale and memorabilia haven. 5 TVs, 3 recliners, 2 wet bars, and every square inch COVERED with Panther memorabilia. NOW...if we ONLY had a team that was going to the playoffs. Oh well...I'm still a big fan! (11 comments)
I Survived the Rookie Years...and Lived to Tell About It! Active Rain Ensured my Survival! - 11/20/09 08:17 PM
It's my ANNIVERSARY!!! Well not my first year, but my second year of selling real estate! I am doggone PROUD!!!! I signed on with Coldwell Banker United, Realtors in Charlotte, NC in November of 2007. The first year seems like a blur as I was baptized by fire, and realized that hardly anything I learned in my pre-licensing course would help me list a house for sale or represent a buyer, or prepare a decent CMA, or FIND business! I could write a book called "All I Ever Really Need to Know About Selling Real Estate, I learned on Active Rain!" (7 comments)
