One of the parameters a Listing Agent can specify when putting a home on the Triangle MLS is "Need Repair."It is seldom used.  Perhaps most all listings are in such good shape that they need no repairs, so why mark it? Out of 16,000 Active residential listings, only 97 show that they "Need Repair...
Searching for golf community homes in and around Cary, NC, is easy.  The Triangle MLS offers listing agents the opportunity to designate a community golf course as a feature for any property. And we do have golf communities in Western Wake County!     So when we search for Cary golf course homes,...
Is this interest rate trend the Hindenberg disaster in real estate?       I think not.  And I think it unwise to push consumers to buy property just because rates may go up a little in the spring. Interest rates at 5%+ do NOT signify the end of modern civilization as we know it. Interest rates at...
Unfortunate choice results in an unfortunate installation:       I saw this in a house in Cary that I showed today.  The large AC unit is within a foot of the bedroom window.  And the bed will be within a couple of inches from the window.  And the noise will be right there for the owner to enjoy....
"Veto Seto!"Rocky Seto was so eager to spread the word of his good fortune, landing the Defensive Coordinator job at UCLA, he blabbed it all over social media, texted a reporter, and apparently acted unprofessional in general.Too much excitement.

Should I tell what I see, or guess at what they want to hear?I tend to fall into the "Call 'em as I see 'em" camp when it comes to Showing Feedback. I don't mean that a Buyers' Agent should brutalize the home, be crude, rude, or arrogant.  That sort of behavior is not acceptable, and I have been ...
Spring comes early in Cary, NC, and the best time to check the air conditioning equipment is before we need it.    Yes, it is cold and the air conditioner is in hibernation.  Now.  It won't last.When those first 90 degree days roll around with high humidity, it isn't a great plan to hit the therm...
Really.  $6.00 for half a sandwich, and then a bowl of chips and salsa for checking in on FourSquare. I used to be the FourSquare Mayor of Chili's in Cary, and let that get away.  But for a lunch like this, at a price like that, I may once again be a regular....     You're looking at Chicken Ench...
