The distinction between condominiums and townhomes escapes a lot of folks. And many North Carolina agents, too. So I did a little Real Estate Show test from photos of buildings in Raleigh, Cary, and Apex, NC. Play the real estate show below and on a piece of paper indicate whether each of the 15 ...
So, every agent in Cary and Raleigh and Wake County is trumpeting the $8,000 first-time HomeBuyer's Tax Credit.  And we are all reaching out to first-time buyers to help them.

I've been trying to get my mind around various issues regarding the Home Buyer Tax Credit.

Last week in his blog, in a post, "Where have all ...

Sessions start March 9, 2009 in Raleigh, NC, and then will be held in Zebulon, Holly Springs, and Wake Forest through April. Wake County Property Tax Relief is aimed at elderly, the disabled, and disabled veterans, with a cap on income to qualify. The second link above also offers contact informa...
Great! As if short sales are not enough of a bother, we have had to worry about commission reductions by the lenders. And Buyers have had to worry about kicking in cash if a minimum commission agreement was in place in the Buyer Agency Agreement. Fannie Mae has stepped up to the plate and defende...
