rock hill: What is my home worth in todays market? - 05/05/09 02:58 AM
In today's economy it is important to know the market value of your home.  Many of us would like to believe that we know what our home is "worth" and many potential sellers know what they want to sell their home for, but in most cases the perception of what a home is worth to the seller is not reality with today's market.  Investing in real estate is still a solid long term investment strategy, however, owners need accurate and reliable information at their fingertips to really understand and weather today's market conditions.   There are a number of outstanding websites that are free to people to … (0 comments)

rock hill: Buy With Selling In Mind - 05/02/09 03:47 AM
Most buyers will sell their homes within 5-10 years due to expanding families, job transfers, or other factors.  Keep an eye out for features that will fetch top dollar in any housing market.  Here are a few features to look for:
Look to the view:  Homes with an unencumbered view of nature or city lights sell higher than comparable homes without a view. 
The more the merrier:  Demand for homes with three or more bedrooms and at least two and a half bathrooms is greatest.
Busy landscaping:  Avoid property that is over-landscaped.  The money you'll invest to keep it up may … (1 comments)

People ask us all the time about what we enjoy the most from living in Rock Hill, SC.  Well, the list is long, but one of the benefits is living near a big city such as Charlotte, NC while still living in area with a small home town feel.  Today we actually enjoyed one of the perks of living near  big city and that was the Quail Hollow Championship Golf Tournament.  What a way to spend a Wednesday.  There were thirteen of the top fifteen golfers in the world participating in this tournament and today was the always incredible Pro/Am Tournament.  … (1 comments)

rock hill: Buying a Short Sale or Foreclosure ...........what avenue is best for you - 04/22/09 07:06 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)

rock hill: Sellers Be Ready - 04/18/09 03:17 PM
Getting your house ready to list on the market can be a stressful time, but the really stressful time occurs when they house is actually on the market.  Sellers need to be ready at all times for a potential buyer to call wanting to set up an appointment.  This means keeping the house picked up at all times and being willing to leave on a moments notice so real estate agents can bring buyers in.  Many times appointments will be made last minute because while driving buyers may notice a house for sale that was not on their list and they … (1 comments)

Are you a full-time professional real estate agent? How long have you worked full time in real estate? How long have you been representing buyers? What professional designations do you have?Knowing whether or not your agent practices full time can help you determine potential scheduling conflicts and his or her commitment to your transaction. As with any profession, the number of years a person has been in the business does not necessarily reflect the level of service you can expect, but it is a good starting point for your discussion. The same issue can apply to professional designations. Do you … (0 comments)
