nc homes: Why Sellers Sell when there is a Divorce or Break Up - 01/30/11 02:52 PM
When we work with Buyers, we're often asked, "Why are they selling?" There are many reasons why Sellers are Selling Their Homes. First, we usually don't have insider information such as why a seller is selling.  In our area, there could be anywhere from 15,000 to 20,000 homes available for sale at any given moment.  A listing agent will protect their clients and not disclose why a seller is selling unless it is helpful to the seller to disclose that information and the seller gives their approval. 
There are many Reasons Why a Seller is selling their Home. Once of these … (2 comments)

This is great informaiton from my RE Partner Sharon.  She's a former Wake County Teacher.  I'm a parent of children in public and private schools and have worked & served in various schools.

nc homes: Top Ten Reasons To List a Home During The Holidays!!! - 10/20/10 03:05 PM
Below Mary talks about The Top Ten Reasons to List a Home During the Holidays!  She makes some very valid points.  Another point to add is interest rates are so low, there could be buyers ready to make a move and looking for a good home before the spring market hits. 
There are predictions of pent up demand.  Once they're convinced the market is definitely improving, we may see a rush of people trying to get in on the last of the good deals.
My suggestion to buyers is to get with a Great Realtor® now and begin the mortgage process.

I'm passionate about what I do - Helping Others Buy & Sell Homes. 
There is a lot more to being a Realtor®than letting someone into a house or putting their property into MLS.  It goes way beyond writing the contract or assisting with the Inspections.  Yes, it's more than understanding the legal jargon or being a "referee" between sellers & buyers.  Its even beyond being the calm in a storm or an encouraging word.  I could make you a list of what I do but, it would be never ending.  When all is said and done, I don't get satisfaction … (6 comments)

The West Park Entrance can be found off Hwy 55 near the High House Intersection in Cary, NC.  What's interesting about the entrance is it is a semi-circle.  You enter the subdivision at Park Scene.  If you miss the first turn, you can enter at the next entrance also which is the other side of the semi-circle - Park Scene.  Some people mistake this as a park because all your see from Hwy 55 is the beautiful landscaping and private park.
As you can see, West Park is an established neighborhood with lush landscaping.  Homeowners do a wonderful … (2 comments)
