Why Hasn't My House Sold Update - 05/30/12 06:05 AM
These sellers walked away from the sale of their home the day before closing over repairing a GFI problem. They had already moved from the area and bought a new home. I pointed out to them repairing this was probably going to be much less than their monthly payment and in this market, qualified buyers are hard to come by to no avail. I also pointed out that it was going to come up again with another offer if they did a home inspection and that almost all buyers do. They still refused to make the repairs. Needless to say, we (0 comments)
Bird Watching - 05/23/12 12:55 PM
Earlier this year, we observed a pair of Blue Herons nesting in the Nivens Creek area of Lake Wiley. Sometimes we would see the mother or father and sometimes both. Soon, we could see they were feeding the young chicks, Finally, this week, we saw the ytoung chicks for the first time. They were standing in the nest surveying the lake. As you can see from the pictures, they have grown quite a bit. All in all, it has been an awesome experience to have watched this nest and finally see the young chicks!! www.soldinrockhill.com

Moving - 05/17/12 03:58 AM
After living at the beach for almost twelve years, we decided to move to Rock Hill, South Carolina to be closer to our families. With Jesse's recent heart attack, we realized just how important families are and we wanted to spend more time with them. Earlier in our life, we had moved every few years, so we had managed to keep clutter to a minimum. After living in the same house for so long, we were totally amazed at the amount of stuff, we had managed to accumulate. We made at least ten trips to the Salvation Army and the dump. (4 comments)
HOW TO GIVE YOUR HOME A FACE-LIFT: THE SELLERS' GUIDE TO A QUICK SELL
One of the great challenges to selling a home can be showing all of its space, decor and natural light potential. For example, every home has crowded closets and dead space. Sellers should be aware that areas such as these are easy to spruce-up with a little elbow grease and old-fashioned innovation.
Begin by evaluating your closet/storage space, determine which areas can cut-down in clutter. Go through old clothes, shoes, etc., and get rid of anything that will not be used and (0 comments)
THE SMART WAY TO LOOK AT HOME IMPROVEMENTS - 05/15/12 05:36 AM
What home improvements really pay off when the time comes to sell your house? That’s an important question for any homeowner contemplating moving or remodeling. And the only possible answer is a somewhat complicated one. That answer starts with the fact that really major improvements – room additions, total replacements of kitchens and baths, etc., -- rarely pay off fully in the near term. It ends with the fact that small and relatively inexpensive changes can pay off in a big way in making your home attractive to buyers if your decision is to move now. It’s a (0 comments)

Magnolia Gardens, Charleston, South Carolina - 05/02/12 10:48 AM
We recently spent a couple of days in Charleston, South Carolina and while there toured Magnolia Gardens. The Azaleas were in bloom at the time of our visit and they were breathtaking. It is amazing to be able to walk underneath Azaleas. The walk along the riverbanks of the Ashley River was also beautiful. There are many types of wildlife in the ponds and surrounding areas including alligators, egrets, blue heron and more.
Magnolia is one of the oldest gardens in the United States and is the oldest public garden. Magnolia Plantation was formed in 1676 by Thomas and (0 comments)
