charlotte foreclosures: Staging 101 for Charlotte sellers - 12/30/11 01:03 PM

Hi! My name is Jarrod Clay and I am excited to join the Charlotte Real Estate Blog for a series of guest posts. I work every day helping real estate agents and home stagers prepare a property for market, and with companies nationwide to help relocating employees find temporary or permanent housing in the Charlotte area.
From increasing home values to decreasing the amount of time a home spends on the market, the value of home staging is undeniable. Depending on the property, you may want to consider hiring a professional home stager. For times when that is not in … (2 comments)

charlotte foreclosures: 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 foreclosures: 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 foreclosures: Who asked for RAIN in Charlotte, cause here it comes? - 10/06/10 08:55 AM
I received the best phone call this afternoon from Cassandra Moselle. She was calling me to share the fabulous news:
Charlotte, NC and surrounding areas, get ready to be in the RAIN OCTOBER 28

This is what we will all be saying after Raincamp Charlotte
Can you see what the sign says? If not, it says, "Will you look back on life and say, "I wish I had" or  "I'm glad I did"? I for one will be chanting the latter. Somehow even in this crazy real estate market that most of us find ourselves in I still have the … (0 comments)

charlotte foreclosures: 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)

charlotte foreclosures: Need help placing your furniture? - 09/25/10 03:30 PM
Have you ever wanted to find a program that would help you lay out your furniture in your new home? This past week, I had one of my Union County buyers ask me if I knew of a good program to help them lay out their furniture in a couple of the different homes that Team Ludlow Realty had shown them this week. They were trying to see if their big furniture would fit in the master bedroom.
It had been a long time since I had thought about such a program, but it just so happened that I was at … (5 comments)

charlotte foreclosures: A new view of Uptown Charlotte - 09/21/10 03:17 PM
I don't envy my husband's almost hour drive into his Uptown Charlotte office. I do however love the view that he has once he gets there. This morning I went Uptown to visit him and this was the view from his parking garage. I hear that the view from his office building is even better. It was awesome and I will gladly be taking many more trips to Uptown Charlotte just to see the view, er I mean him.

charlotte foreclosures: Seriously, way to treat your frequent flyer... - 09/16/10 04:05 PM
As I originally wrote this blog I was somewhere over Georgia on my way to Texas for the Keller Williams Mega Camp. I made my travel arrangements through Orbitz which is usually a very positive experience but today has been a little lacking.
I was at the counter before My flight left Charlotte talking to the attendant about my seat. I had selected seat 10c for the short 55 minute flight to Atlanta. I then selected 12b for the next leg that was a little under 2 hours. When I checked in at the Delta kiosk I was presented with a ticket of seat … (4 comments)

charlotte foreclosures: Just because my buyer got sick, didn't mean I got to go back to bed. - 09/01/10 04:45 PM
I woke up this morning ready to go show potential homes to a buyer that had been on a MLS search for several months. Before I even got out of bed at 6:30 am, she called to tell me that she was really sick and would have to reschedule.

Not planning on being awake for another hour I was not in my sorts yet. I simply thanked her for letting me know and to call me when she was feeling better. I then got up, took the 6 year old to school and got the oldest on the bus. I … (8 comments)

charlotte foreclosures: Are you staring at empty rooms in your new home? - 08/23/10 08:42 AM
Have you moved into the home of your dreams only to be face to face with some seriously bare rooms? If that is your dilemma, then take a day trip to Ikea. Yesterday, the oldest and I were running some errands and found ourselves on the North side of Charlotte. Instead of running into Wal-Mart to grab some light bulbs, batteries and lunch we decided to make it a fun blog worthy trip into the Home superstore.

The parking lot was over half full during lunchtime on a Thursday which was quite remarkable in itself. I usually only … (6 comments)
