Speechless Sundays - Something to Write Home About or Is It? Many moons ago, in college, the bar to reach was whether or not there was something to write home about or not! Well, as an adult, I have joked many times about this level of measurement! This time, I think my Dad would be so proud of me, growing my own vegetables and, more importantly, sharing the harvest with others.  This year's harvest should be the best one I've had - well, let's just say, in decades! Several have savored the lettuce so far this year and we expect many others will be able to enjoy the next harvest - tomatoes.  Tonight's dinner was a simple BLT and some jalapeno poppers - both were abolutely delishous...Have a great week ahead!

Many first-time buyers never consider buying a short sale home. It’s a shame too, considering that new homeowners can save a lot of money this way. For a first-time buyer in Charlotte, NC, a short sale is a great way to stay within their home buying budget. Short sales are becoming more popular. They are a favorable alternative for homeowners who can no longer afford to pay their mortgage. This gives buyers, especially first-time buyers, the chance to get a great deal on a house. However, while a short sale can be great for a first-time homeowner., there are more steps involved than buying a typical home for sale. Your offer not only has to be accepted by the seller, but by their mortgage lender as well. The short sale process is admittedly a bit confusing at first. It can be a difficul...

 Latest news on the Ballantyne real estate market and what it means for you...  Ballantyne remained a seller's market in March 2021 due to the continued lack of inventory, which dropped over 66% year-over-year. Months supply of inventory was down (-64.3%) compared with March 2020 to 0.5 months of housing supply. The drop in housing inventory year-over-year resulted in considerably lower days on market, a decrease in closed sales, and much higher home prices. Average Ballantyne home sale prices increased 14.5% to $472,328 in March 2021 compared with the same month one year ago.  Median home sale prices increased 14.9% to $415,123 in March 2021.

Don't Be Fooled - Check the Data and Remember the Numbers Don't Lie Note that I did not call anyone a ‘fool!’ This post is a follow-up to one that I recently wrote about Bubble vs. Supply & Demand. Speaking with agents here in Charlotte area, as well as across the nation, I am surprised that there are still agents who follow the news without doing their own research.  Many are convinced that we are in a bubble - you know, like the one that burst in a big way back in 2008. While I was looking for some supportive documentation on this topic, I found that KCM (Keeping Current Matters) had also addressed this topic (from a totally different [national] point of view). They provided the following photo.   Don’t be blinded by the headlines reporting year-over-year housing numbers these days, a...

The Housing Bubble Discussion Again?  🏘  I can’t tell you how often I am asked when I ‘think this bubble is going to burst.’ The ‘mockingbird media’ tends to believe that we are in the midst of a major bubble and that we are soon to be in a world of hurt! This is not about a ‘bubble,’ this is about simple economics, supply & demand. When asked if today’s high buyer competition and rising home prices are evidence of a housing bubble, Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist at NAR, said “this is not a bubble. It is simply lack of supply.” Today’s housing market is healthy and rising prices are driven by real buyer demand.  We currently have a record-low number of homes available to buyers. It is impossible to go from a ½ month supply (which we currently have here in the Charlotte Metro) to a 6-mont...
