Kernersville North Carolina has gotten rain today. As we are in the middle of a drought we are glad to see any precipitation. Kernersville does not have the same water crisis that other cities have as there a good water supply. This has set Kernersville as a good place to live and also for developers to build communities. Real Estate in Kernersville still has some wells and there were a few that had gone dry. For the most part public water has been close enough for the owner to at least have an alternative. Being on active rain and writing bloggs helps in sharing information and even having a little fun as we are having an Active Rain in Kernersville North Carolina.Green Yards in Kernersville at http://www.realesateworkhorse.com/

Kernersville real estate and the first signs of spring are here. Looking at the John-Quills forming buds is always the sign that spring is coming. I like to compare this in the mornings with the current real estate market. I am experiencing sign of budding buyer as they are becoming more tuned into the traditional saving methods and financial responsibility. The real estate buyers of today are more realistic about things not being handed to them and realizing that the programs of the past few years are only temporary solution. Kernersville has a good infrastructure with jobs that available. Real estate is well and there is affordable housing. See Kernersville Real Estate at http://www.realestateworkhorse.com/

Creating paper wealth is not a bad thing. Often I ask myself is this the best strategy. Investing in real estate is good and a wise decision. The value real of real estate tends to preform well over time. Much of the quick flipping has flopped and the steady plans of sweat equity is back in the picture. Derivatives or cash flow of properties has come back into the picture as the risky portion of high yields of creating paper wealth has not preformed for some investors .Look for real estate to create both types of wealth at www.RealEstateWorkHorse.com

Greensboro,NC Real Estate of the triad area of North Carolina has a bright future. Homes are moving with slight gains. As with many areas there are properties that have not preformed well, mainly due to the condition and deferred maintenance of the real estate. Triad area real estate has gotten global attention with major corporation expanding and locating in the area. Greensboro shows up as a metro area in searches and is supported by the surrounding cities of Winston Salem, Kernersville and High Point as well many other smaller towns. The dynamic types and ranges of real estate has kept the market trending water when other areas have been struggling. Rentals for real estate in the area strong as the vacancy rates are tending to be small with owners I have spoken to. All factors consid...

Green collar for real estate agents may be the next trend. With real estate, each customer is unique and does not always focus on green. This is the opportunity to educate and guide real estate customers in the green direction. As the benefits of having green homes and the attributes of energy saving features become more pronounced there will be a staging effect of the green features. Dated real estate may very have the added challenge of green comparison to more energy homes. Sellers should consider this as there is the immediate energy cost savings as well as the sellability of the home. This poses my questions of updating a kitchen in a home with single pain windows and the choice that should made. Many updates cannot improve the functionabilty and tend to fall short of the recoup va...

Get ready for the real estate rebound. Real estate has always done well and has support level that are not always transparent. Real Estate markets across the country are very different and some areas have being OK and others are not.

This is time to lay the ground work for a real estate business as there are many who will be buying homes in the future. www.RealEstateWorkHorse.com and www.BonnerTCR.com

Last night more than ten agents from Keller Williams Realty Kernersville office attended the Kernersville Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours.  The January Business After Hours was hosted by C. P. Morgan.  This was a well attended event with lots of great networking (and food).   All in attendance were able to view the C.P. Morgan New Home Showroom and talk with vendors such as Embarq and Piedmont Natural Gas.  For Realtors it was a great opportunity to learn about the new home communities they are building in Winston-Salem and Burlington.  Keller Williams Kernersville office has approximately 80 agents who serve Kernersville, Winston-Salem, Greensboro and the entire Piedmont Triad Region.  Please visit my website at  http://www.shannonmeyeryourkwagent.com/.

Being relatively nes to real estate blogging and trying to leverage the power of the Internet. I am putting in my 2008 Internet plan referrals from the Internet. About 70% of my business comes from Internet lead generation (including past clients and those they refer to me) The triad area of North Carolina is definitely on the radar of many relocations and I wish to be the Realtor of choice for Realtors as well as consumers. Referrals have a good deal of trust built in with them. Don't make a move to North Carolina with out talking to the Real Estate WorkHorse.

Real Estate housing starts for November were released this morning. The numbers did not seem to be a surprise in commentary with the media. Real Estate has been under the microscope of the media for some time as real estate has been in the backwash of fairly large appreciation in recent years.The link on the numbers is http://www.census.gov/const/newresconst.pdf One item that occur to me is that there are still housing starts in real estate as well as existing homes still being sold. There are pockets that are not selling. With real estate it comes down to individual properties. In a great real estate market if ones home is not selling or in a bad market if one home has sold then owners feel the opposite of the numbers.Traditional real estate methods are still in place and very strong. ...

Real Estate and holiday clutter sometimes can be like oil and vinegar. Generally well kept homes are not very much of a challenge. The homes where there becomes a question of where is the motivation to sell this piece of real estate is the challenge in educating owners to stage properly. Real estate is a business of first impressions and making sure that the home is ready to show at all times is very important. Obviously people need to live and enjoy the holiday season. There can be a happy balance and often makes for a happier season. Much the same as waste not want. How much stuff do we really need as a society. Reflecting on the spirit of the holiday season may give rise to the renaissance of just being thankful and giving things that are useful. Best Wishes in your Real Estate ventu...

Keller Williams Kernersville is the largest real estate company in Kernersville. Not that size is important because we pride ourselves on outstanding customer service. We are devoted to quality training and making sure our agents display a high level of professionalism. The real estate market in Kernersville is still very strong. The national media is butchering the truth when it comes to the real estate market. Some parts of the country are seeing major impacts, but others (like Kernersville) are remaining stable. Gary Keller said it best when he said (and I paraphrase): Saying that the real estate market is bad everywhere, is like a meterologist saying the tempeture is going to be 94 degrees everywhere. This is very true. The local market in our area is holding strong. Especially for ...

Kernersville Real Estate absorption rate is holding steady. North Carolina seems to be weathering the storm of the so called credit crunch. I have noticed and not be able to extrapolate statistics of homes that sell quickly and real estate that is just sitting on the market. Homes that are priced right seem to move in about 30 days. I generalize this from homes that I have been tracking. Others that I track waiting for the price reduction that is needed stay on the market. Real Estate is a changing dynamic that has not been seen before. The normal cycle of absorption rates is somewhat skewed from the view of local pockets of growth and other areas of a slump. Since Kernersville real estate did not see a huge jump in prices and there has been Little correction needed to bring prices in l...

Kernersville Real Estate rentals are getting scarce for renters. Apartments are approaching  100% in Kernersville, NC. Real Estate for consumers with lower credit and higher dept loads is not an option like it has been in the past couple of years. This has created a higher demand for rental properties. The cap rate for investors is rather low in the short term leaving the need for appreciation. It is great that very often a house will create a positive cash flow.  A steady rise in real estate for this area is expected which is great for the long term. Kernersville can be considered a bedroom community with short commutes to work and recreation. This has kept the Triad as a source for owner occupied and investor properties of real estate. Relocation with respect to new jobs has been grow...

Green roof tops on homes and Real Estate is a topic that has had my interest for some time. What little I have seen of plants on roofs has been on flat roofs of mainly commercial real estate in downtown type areas. The weight of soil type material and water is a limiting factor that will be the challenge. With limited building experience that I have, I realize there is a functional obsolescences with the design of the traditional homes. A combination of solar panels and improved quality shingles is the approach that is currently being used and accepted as the best practice for green homes. Cost and ROI seem to always drive these types of projects. The earth is now paying the cost of the absence of green thinking and its cumulative effect. Small steps will have a very positive effect in ...

Kernersville Real Estate and the Value of homes are holding steady with some gains on well maintained homes.The economy  of the Kernersville triad area of North Carolina is still holding steady. This is not to say that there are not challenges for owners of real estate. Homes that are in good show shape are doing well. The buyers market has created some what of a gap between the homes that move well and real estate that is just sitting. Properties that are discounted have been moving (somewhat slowly) but still moving. This at least has not allowed for a huge build up of inventory and stages the real estate market for Kernersville NC to do well in the future. The economy offers an attractive environment for jobs and standard of living with a good diversity to complement industry and ser...
