raleigh nc real estate: Let's Get Real About Real Estate - Up, Down, Balanced, Confused? - 07/22/13 11:16 PM
It would be a complete understatement to say that most of the country was and is relieved that the Real Estate Market turned around this year.  But just how much did it turn around and how long will this last?

raleigh nc real estate: Keep An Eye On Your Competition When Your Home Is For Sale - 04/03/13 11:27 PM
In the Raleigh NC Real Estate market, both commercial AND residential inventory and sales are fluid!  Fluid as in moving like a rushing river and changing course!  What may have been considered a reasonable price point a few months ago for a property has most likely changed.

I can promise that no Realtor® will argue the point that if you want to sell your home you must price it properly.  But, even well priced homes will, at times, linger on the market for a little longer and there may be certain factors that play into that.

raleigh nc real estate: Raleigh NC Real Estate - Is It A Buyers Market or a Sellers Market? - 03/29/13 07:58 AM
Many times when I create the monthly market reports I reference the Absorption Rate.  On listing appointments I mention the Absorption Rate and even use it to assist me with my Competitive Market Analysis.  An Absorption Rate is a great indicator of what is happening in a local real estate market.
An Absorption Rate quite simply is the supply of homes that are on the market.  For instance, if there is an Absorption Rate of 8 is would mean that should NO other homes be listed it would take 8 months for the currently listed homes to sell or to be "absorbed" … (16 comments)

raleigh nc real estate: Raleigh NC - 2701 Lead Crystal Court - 3/2.5 - 1c Garage - REDUCED! $128,000.00 - 10/07/09 12:12 PM
The price on this traditional cutie has just been adjusted to $128,000.00!  Yes, it's a steal!  Compare to neighborhood homes and you'll find this an incredible price per square foot and in good condition.  There is a little TLC to be done such as the carpet but at this price the owners are selling AS-IS.
With the exception of the carpet this home has so much to offer!  The freshly painted interior sparkles and is YOUR blank canvas!  Unspoiled hardwood floors gleam in the kitchen and dining area, the family room has a gas log fireplace, french doors lead to the … (4 comments)
