tega cay: Coupon Crazy (actually Coupon Smart) - 01/10/11 02:55 PM
On Saturday night we decided to run some errands including a stop at Harris Teeter for some groceries just in case it snowed.  As soon as we walked into Harris Teeter we thought there was a party going on and we were crashing it.  There were people everywhere and the excitement and electricity wasn't over the anticipated snow, but it was over coupons! It was crazy and I can only describe it as a coupon party going on.  Women, and men, were stopped in the aisles talking about the various coupons in their possession, the triple couple deals, the various ways to organize … (2 comments)

Talk about the gadget of the century!  Our entire family loves the beach.  Nothing like spending the day with a good book, cooler of beverages, wide ocean and your feet in the sand.  For years we have always taken our umbrella to get out of the sun since we stay down at the beach all day long.  We have spent tons of money on stands and new umbrellas that seem to get ruined from the hammering them down into the sand. My prayers have finally been answered thanks to Mikes Spikes.  This nifty invention is an umbrella sand anchor that has a drive … (1 comments)

Nothing smells better than the scent of a freshly cut Christmas tree.  This time of year one of my favorite things about the holiday season is walking into a home and smelling a wonderful frasier fur Christmas tree.  For those that prefer a live tree instead of an artificial tree there are a few precautions to keep in mind this holiday season.  Always keep your tree watered well.  My dad would always soak our tree in a big bucket of water 24 hours before putting it in the stand and bringing it into the house.  Every day be sure and check … (2 comments)

Hard to believe we are heading into the holidays and another year is quickly coming to a close.  Along with holiday preparations this is the perfect time of year to contact your insurance agent and review your homeowners insurance policy.  Many times we take out insurance, but we never take the time to review our policy to make sure we have the right coverage for any changes that may have occurred.  Keep in mind that any renovations, upgrades, additions and so forth that you make to your home should be communicated to your insurance agent so that those items are covered … (3 comments)

tega cay: Why "For Sale By Owner" can be a big mistake - 09/23/10 08:49 PM
Whenever homeowners are considering selling their home one of the first questions they ask themselves is should they try to do "for sale by owner" instead of listing with a real estate agent.  This is a fair question and many folks think they can manage the process of selling a home on their own while saving commission to a Realtor.  Many folks who take this path quickly become disenchanted with the process and all that is involved in trying to sell their home.

tega cay: Be smart on your pricing and still make a profit in todays market - 08/23/10 10:02 AM
The asking price you set for your home significantly affects whether you will profit in the sale, how much you will profit and how long your home will sit on the market. Your real estate agent's knowledge of the overall market and what's selling - or not selling - will be invaluable in helping you determine the price. The objective is to find a price that the market will bear but won't leave money on the table.
Here are some points to consider: Time. Time is not on your side when it comes to real estate. Although many factors influence the … (0 comments)

As the parent of a student who is just now driving on his own I worry quite a bit about driver safety.  With school starting many parking lots and roads will be filled with you and inexperienced drivers.  I caution these young drivers to be aware of your surroundings and other drivers.  Does not matter how good a driver you may be, but you also need to be looking out for other drivers.  Neighborhoods need particular attention because with so many people and children out walking, skateboarding and riding bikes drivers need to be cautious and aware of all the folks … (1 comments)

Many people often ask us if investing in rental property is a wise investment.  For long term investment purposes real estate has long been a wise financial investment for people.  Unfortunately the economy over the last 2 years has had a tremendous effect on folks and many of the effects are negative resulting in a record number of foreclosures and short sales.  As a result of this misfortune there are a number of real estate opportunities that make purchasing a second home or an investment property doable when once before many people could not have afforded such an investment.  This … (0 comments)

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 … (0 comments)
