north carolina: Local Market Improves - 01/02/09 05:03 AM
Our local Real Estate Market has improved over the last few months. I'm not jumping for joy, yet, but we have seen an improvement none the less.
Bargain hunters snatching up foreclosures, home owners who pulled their properties off the market, and buyers starting to enter the market helped shrink out local inventory of available homes for sale to its lowest point since March 2008.
Total listing of homes for sale declined 5.1 percent in December compared to November, according to figures compiled from the Rocky Mount MLS.
Total listings at the end of December are a mere 1 percent higher … (0 comments)

This holiday season, as we share in the spirit of giving and enjoy familiar Christmas traditions, we have the opportunity to reflect on how fortunate we are to live in this great Nation.

May you and your family have a safe and joyful holiday season and a prosperous New Year.

north carolina: Client Story - Jim & Maria Wanted to Retire to the Ashville Area - 12/21/08 11:33 PM
SituationI received a call from a couple wanting to sell their home in Brassfield Estates. Both Jim and Maria were retired and they wanted to move to the Ashville, North Carolina area. The couple had learned about me from my website, www.NCRealEstateWeb.com, and gave me a call.
During our meeting we discussed how I work, why I do the things I do, and exactly what I was going to do to help them get their home sold. At the end of the meeting they informed me that a friend had recommended another Realtor to them. They would contact me with their … (1 comments)

north carolina: Price it Right - 12/14/08 10:08 PM
Part of the reason so many houses here in the Rocky Mount area stay on the market for so long is that many are overpriced.
There are many reasons why Realtors list homes that are overpriced but that's not the topic of this post. I want to stick with the benefits of pricing your home correctly from day one.
The bottom line is that pricing your home correctly on the first day it is listed should lead to a quicker sale at a higher price. How can this be you ask. Let me explain.
The first couple of weeks your home … (0 comments)

north carolina: How to Get a Quick Sale in a Slow Market - 12/12/08 04:21 AM
There are many things that determine if and when a house sells. However, three things stand head and shoulders above the rest. They are price, condition, and marketing. Lets take a look at these:
Price - Your home must have a reasonable and justifiable price. A good buyer's agent will look at comparables to determine if your house is priced correctly. Therefore, it must be priced within the range that comparable homes have SOLD for (reasonable) and the condition and/or unique features must justify your specific price.
Price is controlled by the market.
Condition - The condition of the property must … (0 comments)

north carolina: Another Firm Disappears - 12/08/08 01:35 AM
Last week I reported that the local Prudential Franchise went out of business. Unfortunately, it looks as though a second firm in as many weeks has been forced into memory.
This morning it was published that that Team One Real Estate has closed its doors. This was a highly productive and experienced local team that broke out a few years ago and opened their own office.
The economy, housing market, and credit freeze continues to take its toll on our business. I wish that the individual "Team One" members land on their feet.

north carolina: Local Real Estate Firm Closes - 12/05/08 02:08 AM
I was reading the paper this morning, http://www.rockymounttelegram.com/news/slow-sales-close-prudential-franchise-276713.html, and saw that the local Prudential franchise, Prudential Ferrell Realty, has closed due to slow sales. The Prudential Ferrell Realty had offices in Rocky Mount and Tarboro.
The agents have been absorbed into the local Coldwell Banker and Century 21 franchises.
I want to extend my wish that all involved will recover and prosper in the near future.
Our local real estate market is suffering a perfect storm. The recession, a poor local economy, the credit crunch, constant bad news via news outlets, and low consumer confidence all combine to create a less … (0 comments)

north carolina: Local Inventories Improve - 12/03/08 04:41 AM

north carolina: New service - Foreclosure Alerts! - 11/29/08 05:46 AM
I get calls almost everyday from people looking for foreclosed homes. In these tough times it makes sense to look for the best bargain. Unfortunately the local MLS system is not set up to filter out foreclosures as a group. Therefore, to satisfy the growing demand for foreclosed properties I have created my own system.
I have just launched a new service, www.M3Forclosures.com. This service will email foreclosures when they are released and listed "For Sale" by the banks. Many foreclosures sell quickly as they are sold well below current market value.
The initial service area is Nash, Edgecombe, and Wilson … (1 comments)

Active residential listings totaled 1086 properties. This is an increase of 30 properties, or 2.7%, from 1056 in May. Inventories typically fall this time of year as buyers take advantage of large inventories and the summer moving season.  However, this did not happen.
Newly listed properties totaled 178. This is a decrease of 16 new listings, or 8.2%, from 194 last month.
Sold properties totaled 81. This is a decrease … (0 comments)
