If you had a smart buyers Agent they more than likely found out about this important information before you bought the home.To request a search on your own home go here --->> Macon County NC SepticThe septic tank will determine the number of bedrooms that is in your home. It is a material fact that needs to be disclosed to buyers by the agents and seller.  Please don't tell bedroom lies and have it bite you in the butt later.  If you do not know, find out and not guess.Especially back before 2010 homeowners & agents were misleading the public by advertising more bedrooms than the septic was designed for and then putting in the agent remarks the real number of bedrooms. The problem with th...

Its best to anticipate any issues that may arise before you list a home for sale. Educate the Home Seller why its in their best intrest to take care of issues now. If you know ahead you can get estimates on the cost of the repairs.  If they have no funds to fix repairs, come up with the a plan with the Seller by listing the cost of repairs into the selling price so you have that money to negotiate with or  The best thing is to fix it so its never a issue.Don't get caught in the end with a  the home inspection and now with a huge mess.  The seller mad at you and the buyer about to walk.All homes have something that needs attention, even newer homes.  Most home owners know of something they been meaning to do but been living with it and it has not bothered them until now.

Spring is in the air and so are the Wood Bee's Wood Bee's are already here!  This is the damage a wood pecker will do if the bee's lay their eggs. (also known as the carpenter bee) It does not matter what kind of wood it is but if you don't keep you home treated this could happen to you. This is the second home already this year where the home owner was not home to plug the perfectly round holes and treat.  When Mr. Wood Pecker finds it, Game Over.  So do yourself a favor and the next time to stain or paint the wood add some protection.    Preventing Carpenter Bee’s: Spare yourself the stress and the bees; use a preventative!  1. Citronella-based  additives like NBS 30 for exterior finishes. This stain additive will repel Carpenter Bees as well as Lady Bugs. You can use NBS 30 in many w...

How Come my property taxes haven't gone down with the value? Macon County NC 2013 tax rate of .2790 or nearly 28 cents per $100 dollar property valuation, is the lowest county tax rate in the State of North Carolina! By law Franklin, NC has to assess our property values every 8 years.  Franklin has never gone that long until now.  Our Property Assessment was every 4 years when the value was going up, up and up.  Now that the property values have plummet they didn't dare touch it.  2013 Macon County will be Re-assessing our property values because its been 8 years and its the law. Home owners make the mistake of thinking there property is worth what the Tax Man says.   It is NOT an appraised value, its a property assessment of what the county says its worth and you pay the taxes on that ...
