Househunting can be exhausting, but there's no reason to do it alone.Most folks don't know that a buyers agent works for the buyer for free.  They don't get compensated for their time unless the find a home for their buyers. So I do think there is a fair amount of detective in all of us.   Working with a great agent (ahem, me) will help lighten that stress load! #thehelpfulagent #home #houseexpert #house #listreports #homeowner #realestate #realestateagent #realtor #icanhelp #funny #dadjoke

Latest news on the Indian Trail real estate market in May 2022...What you need to know...What it means for you... Indian Trail area (28079 zip code), which includes the towns of Indian Trail, Stallings, Hemby Bridge in Union County, remained a home seller's market in May 2022, despite all the talk of a market correction.  It's been more than six years since Indian Trail could be considered a balanced market, much less a home buyer's market. Average home prices increased 32.5% year-over-year, setting a new record.  Average days on market also dropped in May. Pending sales also decreased 12.4% year-over-year, while closed sales increased 7.4%. Inventory increased year-over-year 3.7% (equal to three additional homes on the market).  Indian Trail Area Housing Market HighlightsMay 2022 vs Ma...

I read an interesting posting this week regarding responsibility when folks comment on your Facebook entries.  Really, I imagine it would apply to any social media where folks comment.To sound a little "karate kid", the article pointed out the that "with increased engagement comes increased responsibility".  There's no doubting that an inflammatory post can get a string of comments going.  I see it in the forums all the time.  (My personal guideline always seems to start with, "Would I like my mom to see this...")What we want to avoid as brokers with our social media is defamatory or potentially damaging comments.So if we have a team...of course teammates represent the broker...and the buck stops with the broker. Communication is key, and maybe a bit of interactive "watching" on a regul...

It seems that people need a laugh – especially on Friday. So, we dig back in to classic comedy scenes from a much better age of television. Some clips I found from past TV comedy when TV comedy meant something far different from today. A more innocent time and a time of real quality. Hope you enjoy the clips. Due to the length, there is just 1 clip per week. Enjoy!

The kitchen is the hub of every household, unlike the earlier times. And the best way to entertain your loved ones is to turn your kitchen into a jaw-dropping organized, and clutter-free one.You can make the best use of the available space and reflect your personality and style in the kitchen. Playing a significant role in your family's social life, your kitchen depicts your lifestyle and taste. If you are one of those homeowners thinking about kitchen remodeling, you can drop the idea and simply install a modern kitchen cabinet to transform the space.Defining a decor style can be complicated. The kitchen redesigning and installing cabinets is singularly your choice. However, if you wish to bring in that appealing, elegant look you have always desired, you should understand the differen...
