leigh brown: A Tale of Two Listings - 07/23/07 01:43 AM
When the real estate market hits a lull, it seems that a big game of musical chairs starts!  Houses that are currently on the market and not selling begin second-guessing their agents and wondering if a change is in order.
I received a referral from an agent in Mississippi.  His mom is trying to sell her house in Kannapolis NC, and like everyone else on the market, she's concerned about the lack of showing traffic.   She was wondering if her agent was doing enough marketing to get the house 'out there'.  So upon receiving her call, we sat down and talked.  Discussed … (7 comments)

leigh brown: It's Official, I'm Running for Harrisburg NC Town Council - 07/12/07 08:35 AM
What in the world am I thinking, you say?  Well, I figure a little new blood might be good for the town council.  We've had a lot of drama around these parts in trying to determine what we want the future of Harrisburg to be.
Stay tuned for the campaign updates (such as they are).  I'm determined to spend no more money on this campaign than the $5.00 required to file my candidacy.  It's truly ridiculous, the waste of money and trees that is represented by the little signs all over town...
Oh-and you heard it here first!!

Not only is Mooresville NC the home of Lowe's Home Improvement headquarters and the north side of Lake Norman, but it's still affordable! This great home in Curtis Pond, between Davidson and Mooresville, offers the beauty of a rural setting and the convenience of a neighborhood. This home features real hardwood floors throughout the main level (I'm talking real, not laminate, not pre-finished!). The formal living room has French doors and makes an excellent office/study. The great room has a gas fireplace and media niche and is open to the large kitchen-perfect for entertaining. Upstairs you will find four spacious bedrooms … (7 comments)

leigh brown: A Positive News Story? WHAT? Great Information on Charlotte NC Market - 07/02/07 05:50 AM
Just when you're getting depressed about how the real estate market is treated by the national news media, along comes a positive clip on the ABC News Nightline Online Edition! (Thanks to Olan Carder for the heads-up!)
As we watch the national real estate trends across the country, which consistently show markets that are adjusting downward or have gone flat, Charlotte NC is always popping up as the contrarian market-one of the top places to invest, one of the top values available in the nation, a place of increasing home values.
Finally, we see a news story that explains what's going on and … (10 comments)

I work with a lot of relocating folks, coming to buy a home in Charlotte NC or the surrounding areas courtesy of their jobs at Bank of America or Wachovia or TIAA-CREF or Billy Graham Ministries or Lowe's Home Improvement.
One of the little things we chat about while we're touring the area is what grocery stores are where and what they're like.
Our  fanciest and finest grocery store (outside of the specialty stores) is Harris Teeter. Locally owned and operated and one of the more successful grocery chains in the southeast, it's universally acknowledged as our best.  Not that anything really comes … (15 comments)

leigh brown: Green Ain’t Just for Tree-Huggers Anymore! - 03/13/07 02:13 PM

Should I preface this post by explaining that Al Gore is full of it and an Inconvenient Truth is nothing more than a play for money and votes from left-wing Hollywood?  Yet even knowing that global warming is a liberal marketing ploy, there are things that can be done individually and locally to perhaps be a little friendlier to ye olde third rock!
Just so you know where I'm coming from.
Charlotte isn't exactly at the forefront of ANYTHING that the left wing likes.  Recycling is just now being required in many areas (yes, I myself have been recycling for several years) … (19 comments)

leigh brown: What's Your Investment Strategy? - 02/28/07 12:57 PM
Once upon a time, I was a stockbroker for one of the big national name firms.  Learned a lot in that business (mostly that I hated cold calling), some of which applies quite nicely to real estate.
In particular, investing in real estate.
In light of yesterday's drop in the stock market and the media panic that ensued, and today's ending bell that had the market back up even if slightly, I'd like to share a little insight with the world. 
There are two main strategies for investing, whether it's real estate or stocks and bonds.
