From a blog post by Lisa Sullivan, Marketing Director of Fonville Morisey - Cary, Preston Office Thought you’d like to see this picture Sharon shared with me Her client, David LeBlond is an acquaintance of mine in the Raleigh social media circles. He Tweeted to me back in November that he might be looking to purchase a home this spring. I asked him for a bit more information (what area, type of home, etc.) and with Darcy’s help, we connected him to Sharon for when he was ready. They’ve been working together for a couple of months and today he happily closed on his home. This is a true testament to the unique power of building relationships through social media outlets (in this case Twitter).  Really happy this worked out for them both! Thanks for such a great plug for Kowitz Realty, Lisa!

 The 55 plus market is growing and is expected to keep growing as the baby boomers head for the hills. The National Association of Home Builder's Vice President of Survey and Housing Policy Research Paul Emrath was recently quoted at a briefing at the groups annual conference as saying that single family homes in the 55-plus market tripled in the last quarter of 2012 versus 2011...tripled! Admittedly 2011 was nothing to write home about, but still! There is a lot to think about before moving to a 55- plus community in Raleigh or the Triangle, what are the amenities, monthly dues, rules and regs etc, so it’s best to do your homework. Carolina Preserve by Del Webb is just such a community, located in Cary,NC it offers many activities and amenities along with a good range of home plans de...

I know this song has nothing to do with Real Estate, but when I sat down to write this blog, it just seemed to fit... Well, except for the "Though I'm feeling mighty sick" part. But, other than that, it works here! You see, my friends, when buying or selling a home in the Raleigh, Cary, Apex area, you need a "captain" to help you steer your ship stay focused.
