BURLINGTON, NC/ALAMANCE COUNTY ::: A gold mine of information is available

Real Estate Agent with Casmi Photography

In doing some research on the Burlington, NC and Alamance County areas, I remembered to use the resources in my own arsenal of information sites.  I like to consider them my gold mine.

If you have ever wondered just how much information is available on any one area, then you need to check out Melissa Data.  There are pay portions to this site, which I'm sure are worth every penny ... but I am extremely fond of the free tools and lookups that they provide.

Ever wondered how many businesses are in any given area?  Well, using the Burlington, NC zip code I found out that there are 3,137 businesses in this particular zip code. That list is broken down by category ... an example such as this ...

2-Digit SIC Code SIC Description Number of Businesses Check to Select
01 Agricultural Production - Crops 10
02 Agricultural Production - Livestock and Animal Specialties 3
07 Agricultural Services 37
08 Forestry 1
09 Fishing, Hunting and Trapping 1
13 Oil and Gas Extraction 1
14 Mining and Quarrying of Nonmetallic Minerals, Except Fuels 1
15 Building Cnstrctn - General Contractors & Operative Builders 104
16 Heavy Cnstrctn, Except Building Construction - Contractors 6
17 Construction - Special Trade Contractors 118
20 Food and Kindred Products 3
22 Textile Mill Products 21
23 Apparel, Finished Prdcts from Fabrics & Similar Materials 16
24 Lumber and Wood Products, Except Furniture 6
25 Furniture and Fixtures 2
27 Printing, Publishing and Allied Industries 20
28 Chemicals and Allied Products 5
29 Petroleum Refining and Related Industries 1
30 Rubber and Miscellaneous Plastic Products 2

It's a wonderful tool!  Check it out, bookmark it, and use it!  Just think of the edge it can give you during a tour of homes with a new buyer ... or the info it can give you when doing that presentation to a potential seller.

Hi Carol!  I am so excited that you shared this site with us!  What a WEALTH of information out there--some of the links there, I already have bookmarked but, I went out and found one that you can get notifications of homes sold in a particular zip code each week!  Thanks SO much!

Carol, what a great site. I just played around with it. The one thing I was looking at was homes sold in a certain area code.

It was great to see the month to month comparison each year.

I will definately be using this site.
