ginger sells southport: The House is Dressed for Christmas - 12/16/14 10:10 AM
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The House looks amazing for the Christmas Holidays. 
 
We have a lot of fun Dressing it for Christmas.  This house is the Norment House in Southport and was built in 1913, therefore a hundred and one year old structure.  Builders sure do not build them like they used to.  The house is solid as a rock.  The rooms are large and roomy with space to wonder around and enjoy privacy.
 
The history of the house is amazing with the different families that were raised in the home. I know some of … (3 comments)

Today has been a full day.  Worked hard all  week and have been successful in getting three of my listings sold and closed..

I have worked most of the day on Blogging and face book.
What a treat.  I have sent messages to folks that I have not heard from in … (4 comments)

ginger sells southport: Pay it Forward in December - 12/09/14 08:45 PM
 
This is such a great idea and everyone can do this.
YOu get this great feeling in your heart when you do something for someone else and it is not expected.
It can be as simple as letting a car get in line that is stuck on a side road; smiling a someone with a frown on their face; letting someone get in line in front of you when they have only one or two items and you have a basketfull;

Nobody decides to log on to Facebook to look for homes.  NOBODY.  
Most folks are tired of the constant advertising and marketing they see on Facebook today.

ginger sells southport: Fall Brings Buyer and Fishermen - 09/28/13 11:07 AM
 
 
Fall is bring us some buyers, finally. 
It seems that we have been all frozen out of the real estate market but in the past week or so, buyers are returning to our warm shores once again. 
Fishing is good right now off the piers of Oak Island and surf casting has always been a favorite of mine, especially on East Beach on Bald Head Island. 
A couple of years ago, I caught a 42 pound Drum.  What a treat.  Problem being that the fish was too big to keep according to NC Wildlife and Fisheries.  We had to throw … (1 comments)

Great Day in Southport~My Town. Re-blogged by 0 agents
   It is another great day in Southport NC...
WE are on the Beaver Dam Creek that goes into the IntraCoastal Waterway that goes into the Cape Fear River that goes into the Atlantic Ocean.  The way "the crow flies", we are 2 miles from the Ocean.
Talk about a great place to live...this is IT!
In the afternoon, we go and sit on the dock and catch up with the events of the day and watch the sun set, and the ibis and herons go home to roost.

ginger sells southport: A Blog Each Day in March - An AR Challenge 3 - 03/07/13 05:42 AM
Another Day another Blog.
I love the fact that Kerrie has given us some wonderful questions that we can use for our blogging..
I would like to address the one that is "What's the Best Way to Prepare My HOme for Sale?"
This is a very valuable questions that each buyer should ask their agent.  This is a list that I have that I use in my Lisiting Presentation: 
 
1. Price the property competitively.
 
2. Be willing to consider offers based on VA/FHA terms. Government terms give many buyers a head start on the ability to afford a home.

This is the most fun that I have with an Active Rain contest.  I love getting up and doing the blog each day.
There are some good questions that you have given us to work with.  This is good for us and it also puts these things fresh in our mind. 
I like to give hints to my sellers about what to do to their house to make it more salable. I have a website that I ususally send them to.
Thanks for starting this contest.

ginger sells southport: Southport~The place I call home - 03/03/13 11:09 AM
Well,
I feel like I have joined the 21st Century with a UTUBE of me talking about Southport....the place I call home.
http://wilmingtonrealestatehome.com/1003/southport-north-carolina/
Not sure that this is going to work but thought I would see. This is a good way for your clients to know you and see you and hear how you sound. I find that I sound very southern...but guess that is the way it has be be because I was born in Tar Heel, North Carolina.
Think about it....it was fun.

ginger sells southport: Open House Tips - 02/27/13 05:52 AM
  Open Houses historically have not been well received in our area and I am trying to come up with some very unusual ideas that will set my properties apart and draw more attention.
Balloons, Flags, Flyers are just the norm here. 
You have to spend a lot of money on catering or preparing food for the masses.  They will come to an Agent Open House if you feed them
You are the experts and I has hoped that you would share some of your ideas. I want this to be the most successful Open Houses in the area.

Charles Dickens Christmas Festival is taking place here November 30 - December 1.  It is a time in our town when we dress up like the characters in the Dickens books.  So much fun to see the town with folks in period costumes dress up and doing their thing. 
Tomorrow I will be the hostess at the Amuzu Theatre and will be showing folks around and telling them more about Dickens and the books that he wrote.
I have seen Tiny Tim in Town today..
 
So much fun.

I know that I have told you over the past few days that we were going to have a seafood dinner from the  creek. 
Over the past 3 days, we have caught over 25 fish off the dock.  WE caught Trout, Black Drum and Puppy Drum.  Ranging from 3 pounds up to about 6 pounds.  The Black Drum is the tastiest of all of the fish that we ate.
I cooked 7 large fish tonight along with boiled and fried shrimp, Cole slaw, french fries, hush-puppies, lemon pie and sweet tea.
What a feast we have had.
Now we are all … (4 comments)
