Friday Diary of a Charlotte Real Estate Agent - 30JUN17
In preparation of a long holiday weekend, I believe that every single one of my buyer and seller clients raised their hands this week...even those buyers who haven't looked at homes in several months! So, needless to say, some of those raised hands made Offers, others will resume their search after the long weekend...and otherwise, it was a week of business-as-usual!
The Low Appraisal Bug passed us by this week (THANK GOD!) but, with two appraisal issues on the table from last week, one has been resolved (another THANK GOD!)! I've learned that … (10 comments)

charlotte real estate: "You'll be Here When I Get Back...Right?" - 06/20/17 04:00 PM
"You'll be Here When I Get Back...Right?"
"My Agent's on Vacation - Can you PLEASE HELP US?"
I received a call this spring with that very comment and question - "My agent's on vacation - can you PLEASE help us?"
My initial response was, "I'm sure your agent has someone covering for him/her while they're on vacation - who is your agent?"  The first conversation ended with the buyer saying that they would phone their agent to see who was covering for her. 
They would not give me the agent's name - they just referred to the agent by saying, 'She's gone for another week.'

In this market, you … (117 comments)

Buying Charlotte Real Estate – You Did WHAT? Buying a home used to be such a celebrated event.  It was a sign of growing up and “getting somewhere” in life.  Yet, tell someone you bought Charlotte real estate now days and you might just get wide eyes and a, “You did WHAT?” If you’re still trying to decide if buying Charlotte real estate is for you, consider all the reasons why people are still buying homes all around you (not just in Charlotte either). First, you have the reasons that have stood the test of time:

Selling Your Home, Part II Charlotte Realtor® Offers SELLER TIPS, Part II: De-Cluttering

Are you undermining the value of your home? Whether your home is in great condition and well-built in a fabulous neighborhood, clutter can create a potential buyer's perception of a home that has not been properly maintained.

After all, you're going to have to move this 'stuff' anyway so, why not get a head start on this task and make your home more 'sellable' in the … (10 comments)

charlotte real estate: Charlotte, NC--A Buyer's DREAM! - 03/01/08 12:46 PM
With over 300 Fortune 500 Companies represented in the Charlotte area, our real estate market has not followed market trends as in other cities in the U.S. This is also due to our constant influx of banking transferrees and our growing economy.

Myers Park real estate is not experiencing nearly the problems that other neighborhoods in other cities are currently experiencing but, right now, Myers Park Sellers are extremely 'stressed!'  Here, Sellers are used to seeing their homes "fly off of the market" with contracts, oftentimes within the first day on the market.  
NOW, Charlotte homes are being listed for extended periods of time, … (2 comments)

charlotte real estate: WELCOME TO CHARLOTTE, NC—The City of Growth! - 03/01/08 11:20 AM

The Charlotte Chamber of Commerce has compiled the newest set of numbers revealing that over 1,300 new or expanding firms are investing $2.3 billion in Charlotte’s future infrastructure. With a vacancy of only 2%, commercial space in the Uptown area is very tight and with 14,648 jobs being created by these firms, Uptown residential space should soon be limited as well. The numbers are a fairly good indicator of Charlotte’s continued economic growth.
Some expected new positions in the area are as follows:

>4,436 Accommodations & food service industry
>3,000 Technical service
>2,210 Retail
> 360 Manufacturing
>4,642 Healthcare, finance and administrative support

charlotte real estate: Charlotte, NC: NO VACANCY in Uptown! - 12/20/07 07:09 AM
Our Uptown Charlotte area is BOOMING!  From a 16.6% vacancy rate in 2005 to UNDER 1% rate in 2007 Q4, we are bursting at the seams!  Landlords in the Uptown area are confident, reflecting $30./square foot cost, an increase over last year.  Contractors & developers are also very confident with continuing to build, some saying, "We just can't build fast enough!" 
What incredible news for our ever-expanding banking center!  More office space is not expected in Uptown until 2009 when 6 more towers are expected to be complete.  Where will we go from here?  Dilworth, SouthPark, South Charlotte, Ballantyne...
Here's to a GREAT 2008 in our … (6 comments)

charlotte real estate: December, 2007--Could This be Our Turn-Around Month? - 12/12/07 02:58 PM
Okay, I'll admit it:  The real estate market is in a bit of a 'slump!'  As I read my newspaper through my glass-half-full, I notice that the negative real estate articles are slowing to some degree but, they just keep coming!  So, I decided to do a bit of investigating on my own then, revising my plans for both my Buyers & Sellers.  Here is a synopsis of what I've come up with so far:
Mortgage applications rose this week 2.5 Percent (from 791.8 the previous week to 811.8)On an unadjusted basis, the index increased 1.4 percent compared with last week AND was up a whopping 14.2 percent COMPARED WITH THE … (10 comments)

charlotte real estate: Charlotte Real Estate Makes National News! - 11/28/07 12:49 AM
Today's Charlotte Observer had an encouraging article by J.W. ELPHINSTONE of the Associated Press pertaining to our Charlotte market! In his article, Charlotte bucks housing trend; Home values grew while other cities saw declines, Mr. Elphinstone writes the recent S&P's index of  housing prices in 20 metropolitan areas reveals that five cities, including Charlotte have increased!
Both Seattle and Charlotte, the two leading cities, showed a 4.7% increase over last year, compared to a national decrease in housing prices of 4.5%.
Investors are being quite a bit more conservative due to sub-prime lending scares and increased foreclosures but, Charlotte just keeps the slow and steady climb.
