clover: Short Sales vs Foreclosure - 04/07/09 05:08 AM
There seems to be a lot of confusion among consumers these days when they are trying to understand short sales and foreclosures. Many consumers think these are the same things with the same results.  This is not true.  A sale of a house in which the proceeds fall short of what the owner still owe on the mortgage is a short sale.   Many lenders will agree to accept the proceeds of a short sale and forgive the rest of what is owed on the mortgage when the owner cannot make the mortgage payments. By accepting a short sale, the lender can avoid … (0 comments)

clover: Realistic Expectations - 04/06/09 03:06 PM
It is definitely a buyer's market, but if you don't have realistic expectations as either a buyer or a seller this can be a disappointing time.  Due to the current state of the economy homes are not selling for as a high a price as they may have a couple of years ago.  Having said that, if you are selling and buying you need to remember that even though the house may not sell for the price you are hoping you can recoup on the buyer side of the transaction and end up purchasing more house than possible a couple of … (2 comments)

When it comes to finding a real estate agent in your search for the perfect home the process can be confusing and there is no need for it to be this way.  We often come across buyers during their home search who misunderstand the process.  Many believe that you have to call the listing agent in order to preview the home for sale.

One of the easiest and least expensive ways to change the look of a room in your home is simple.......paint.  Paint can drastically change the look of a room and enhance the appearance that you are going for.  Don't be afraid to experiment with bold and dramatic colors if that is your preference.  There are many renovations that are costly, but if you experiment with paint only to find out you don't like the color or the effect.  All you have to do is paint again.  May take a little bit of time to have to do over, but in the … (0 comments)

Back some 23 years ago I graduated from college and moved from North Carolina to Rock Hill, SC.  At the time I had never heard of Rock Hill even though it was just a few miles south of Charlotte, NC.  Since moving here it has amazed me at all the "transplants" to this wonderful community.  Over the years Rock Hill has grown in large part to the reputation of Winthrop University, employment opportunities and the proximity of Charlotte where people desire living in an area that is close to a big city without the traffic and big taxes.   I love meeting people that have stumbled upon … (0 comments)
