pinehurst: Pinehurst Area Christmas | Fort Bragg Relocation Celebrate Christmas - 12/23/10 12:56 PM
We are seeing beginnings the flow from Fort McPherson in Ga to Fort Bragg in Fayetteville come to the Pinehurst/ Southern Pines area and enjoying the Christmas season. I recently sold a home to a couple who moved with the Force Command department of the army to the Pinehurst area and they commute to Bragg everyday. One of the features they wanted in their home was enough room to store all their Christmas decoration.
The reindeer on top of the fireplace were made by my client and was originally made as a fireplace cover and now they like it better on top of the (5 comments)
Right next to Pinehurst is the Town of Southern Pines and the businesses and town decorate trees that are placed along the sidewalks of this quaint small town. It is hard to see the little basket next to the white sign in front of the administration building in Southern Pines, but there is a basket with dog cookies wrapped in bows for residents walking their dogs along the town streets.
Some of the trees have gift tags for people to (4 comments)
I never paid much attention to how many homes in the Village of Pinehurst get decorated until last year when I went on a carriage ride. I always drive around my own neighborhood to see all the lights, and I need to branch out more. It is so nice to see so many people getting into the spirit of the holiday in Pinehurst and all over. Merry Christmas Everyone! (6 comments)
I will have his attention for a few days, then his friends will return and he will be off with them for most of his vacation. He has agreed to help me with some techy stuff, and we will see how that goes. It is great to have him back in the Pinehurst area with me, and I will hopefully get to enjoy some time with him.

pinehurst: Pinehurst Real Estate Broker Says Goodbye to 2010 | 2011 Bring it On - 12/16/10 05:52 PM
Pinehurst Real Estate Broker Says Goodbye to 2010 - 2011 Bring it On Just had what will probably be my final closing of the year. It is a golf front lot in a gated community near Pinehurst and the lot that had been on the market for about 2 years. He got what he paid for it in 2007, which I think is a great deal especially since it has been so hard to sell lots in this market. So on to the new year.
I've been taking webinars and learning about all the new technology and really trying to get a solid social (6 comments)
This year, the owner of the Village of Pinehurst restaurant Dougan's donated gifts for the children in the Back Pack Pals program in the Moore County Schools. Several area residents and employees of the restaurant got together this morning to gather the variety of gifts into bags for each of the children. The gifts included pencils, pens, books, fruit, rulers, snacks and a few other items. The Back Pack Pals is a program for school children who are suspected of not (5 comments)

pinehurst: Things to do in the Pinehurst Area | No tennis, No Parade so Shopping! - 12/11/10 04:27 PM
Things to do in the Pinehurst Area | No tennis, No Parade so Shopping! Plans were to play tennis, have lunch then watch the parade in Aberdeen, a small town next to Pinehurst. However, the weather was too cold, and the Aberdeen website posted the wrong time for the Parade so I missed that. I did have lunch with a friend and had fun looking at all the Christmas merchandise in the shops and shop windows.

Today at 1:30 there will be the annual Christmas Parade in Aberdeen just 10 minutes from Pinehurst. In addition to the Parade there will be fun things for the kids to do including decorating gingerbread men, face painting, clowns and Santa will be available after the parade. And don't forget to visit the Malcolm Blue Farm either before or after the parade for the annual Early American Christmas Open (3 comments)
As you can see by the chart the last 3 months looks like we are sitting on a bottom. I contend that it looks very similar to the top which was in my opinion August of 2006. Even though the Pinehurst real estate market of home sales peaked higher in July of 2007, the unit sales of homes had been steadily decreasing since August of the prior year. This is a chart of the gross sales for each month running from Jan. 2006 through (0 comments)
There was food provided by a local restaurant called the lunch box. Very Tasty! Many items were donated for a silent auction. I didn't win my bid for new dog bowls for my girls:( This puppy above was with his sibling. If I wan't already insane for having three dogs, I would have taken those two home in a heart beat.

pinehurst: Pinehurst Real Estate and Buyers Agency - 12/06/10 03:24 PM
Pinehurst Real Estate and Buyers Agency There has been lots of talk lately in the blog world about buyers agency and do you use buyers agency agreements. Here in Pinehurst and North Carolina, we are required at first substantial contact to disclose agency relationships and the buyers or sellers right to exclusive agency. We can have an exclusive agency relationship with a buyer verbally, but it must be in writing before we write an offer. To exclusively represent a seller, we do need a written listing agreement. The biggest problem with exclusive agency, is that if you find a buyer for (0 comments)
I walked around the crowd to get a clear picture of the tree. I was impressed with all the people came out for the tree lighting. And, not only did crowds come to see the tree lighting, they were also visiting area shops and bringing business to the Village of Pinehurst. If you are in Pinehurst or nearby, you must come see not only the Christmas Tree, but all the other decorations put out by area businesses. (3 comments)

Be sure to where a coat tonight for the Christmas Tree lighting in Pinehurst, it will be chilly. (0 comments)
These are my three. The two on the outside were adopted from the Moore Humane society, and the middle one was abandoned with her 3 sisters this past summer. I rescued all 3, but I couldn't let this one go. She is one of my miracles this year. The Top Hat and Tails event to be held at the Fair Barn in Pinehurst this Monday, (3 comments)
This house is located about 10 minutes from Pinehurst on Hoffman Rd. near the intersection with Sandpit in the direction of Foxfire. There is a sign up welcoming visitors. This is only a small portion of the lights these home owners have put out. It is very much in the theme of the birth of Christ. If you live in the Pinehurst area, or if you are just visiting, go out one evening to see all of the lit up Christmas scenes. (11 comments)
This is a chart of some of the areas in and around Pinehurst. Pinewild CC is in Pinehurst, and is separated because they were recently annexed into the Village of Pinehurst. I have lived in five states in the US, and this area has the most reasonable property tax rates. Rates are based on the county's assessed value of your home. The county can reassess every year, but usually here in Moore County, we are re-assessed every 7 years. Our last assessment was 2007. Many who retire have a fixed (0 comments)
