charlotte bank owned: The Debt Ceiling Debate Effected Mortgage Rates in Charlotte, NC - 08/05/11 05:14 PM
Today, I wanted to call in an expert. Everyone is talking about the issue of the debt ceiling but there is a lot of confusion. I called my good friend and one of our team mortgage lenders Johnatan Romero with New American Mortgage to tell us exactly what that was going to mean to mortgage rates.
"Everything we feared about the debt ceiling debate became a reality. We didn’t want it to be extended to the last minute, of course it was. We didn’t want the government to raise the debt ceiling, of course … (3 comments)

charlotte bank owned: You really should jump off the fence this time. - 02/02/11 09:58 AM
Have you been waiting to see what the housing market in the Charlotte, NC and surrounding areas was going to do? My advice is jump off the fence and find the perfect home of your dreams now. Why, you might ask. Well, with rates at historical lows, what else can they do but go up?  The lenders that I have been talking to the last couple of months are all saying the same thing. Rates hit the bottom and they are now creeping back up.  

With that said, here are some of the best priced homes in the Charlotte … (3 comments)

charlotte bank owned: Charlotte 4 bedroom near UNCC for RENT or SALE - 01/12/11 08:20 AM
Team Ludlow Realty has a great 4 bedroom home for sale near UNCC (University area) in Charlotte. Our sellers have had their home listed with other agents for almost a year with little to no activity. We put it on the market before the holidays and have had several showings and lots of interested parties.  
As much as I do not like to give this advice to my sellers, I always do what is in their best interest. One of the biggest problem is that sometimes there is just too much inventory and the best thing for a client to do is rent out their … (2 comments)

charlotte bank owned: This wall in a South Charlotte foreclosure had my buyer laughing - 10/19/10 07:13 AM
This past weekend our team was showing first time buyers homes in many of South Charlotte's neighborhoods. We saw mostly bank owned, short sales and foreclosures, but every third house was owner occupied. One of the homes that we saw was a bank owned foreclosure that had my buyers in hysterics. Here is a shot of one of the secondary bedrooms. This is the biggest wall in the room.

I had to agree with them that this would not be my style, but perhaps the previous owner needed to be reminded that after a hard days work that they … (6 comments)

charlotte bank owned: This is how not to cover up the big light fixture in the kitchen that we all hate - 10/13/10 03:50 AM
I really don't even know what else to say on this one except, "REALLY?"
I was showing foreclosures in the Charlotte area to a buyer the other day. That always gives me plenty of things to blog and write about. My clients and I were walking around and all of a sudden one of them says, "Are you serious"? Being that we were in a foreclosure that could mean a whole lot of things.
Clothes left in closets, animals, food left in the fridge, broken windows, holes in walls, doors or floors for that matter, or any host of other things. … (6 comments)

charlotte bank owned: Can you believed I was foreclosed on today? - 10/02/10 02:30 PM
I went out with some first time buyers this morning in Charlotte. We met at the Arboretum at 9 AM and started out to see 6-7 homes in a couple of hours. Typically on the first outing if my buyers are not sure about the area they want to live, I minimize the amount of time and homes I show them to not overwhelm them.
We arrived at the first house that was just a couple of miles away at about 9:15. About 5 minutes into our viewing the front door rang. I couldn't imagine a neighbor coming over but maybe they were … (13 comments)
