Lynnea Miller good morning, Lynnea and thank you. Making decisions like buying a home in a vacuum leads to bad decisions, I think.

Roy Kelley it's sunny here today, Roy. Monday the sun broke out after all that rain from Florence. Yesterday was overcast and humid again... but it's cooled down a bit overnight and looks like we'll have a good rest of the week. Unfortunately, for fellow North Carolinians near rivers, the news is less positive and some of the rivers will be cresting only today and tomorrow.

I hope that many home owners across the country now realize that they need to carry flood insurance.

Roy Kelley hi Roy... you are so right and not just people near the coastline or rivers. I have clients who are inland here in Charlotte and who've had some damage to their floors from leaking water after the rains.

Joan Cox thanks, Joan... I firmly believe that buyers should not be making decisions about purchasing a home in a vacuum.

That looks like an amazing resource, but I would not read it if I were a consumer, I would merely trust the advice of my agent.

Brian England hi Brian... my personal experience with agents before I was licensed was horrific... based on that I wouldn't rely on the advice of agents without doing some homework.

Fall is a wonderful time to buy, and sell, a home. After all, thoughts turn to indoor coziness with fireplaces aglow - and there are generally more cooking aromas wafting through a cheery kitchen. Tis the season. ;)

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD people are often amazed when I tell them that the fall selling season can be quite robust and that I'm often very busy come November. And the picture you paint, Debb, about fireplaces, aromas, etc. are spot on, as well.
