 Unless you've been on an extended vacation in the tropics, no doubt you have encountered some sub-freezing temperatures over the last few weeks.  While a white Christmas is the subject of many songs and the dream of school kids everywhere, if the bone-chilling, frostbite-inducing cold hangs around too long it can wreak havoc on your home.   This past week we encountered one of our listings that had an issue with a frozen condensate drain.  "What's that?" you say? The condenser unit of your HVAC system has a large pan that collects the excess moisture that the system pulls out of the air in your home.  This collected water drains out of the pan through a pipe to the outside of your home.  Due to the below-freezing temps we've been having the water in the pipe (outside) froze so the pan ...

We were so fortunate to work with Phil and assist him in finding his Murphy mountain home. Wildcat is one of the most desirable gated communities here in Cherokee County....I drove up from Florida and met with Lee on a recommendation from my brother.  I told Lee and Carol my requirements and the set about to find me properties.  Lee drove me around showing me houses.  I went back and forth to Florida, with my requirements changing every time.  They were very patient and drove me around every time.  When I finally settled on a house, they worked diligently with the sellers to get to my price and repairs done on the house.  All the paperwork was sent to me in Florida and the closing went well.  I still see Lee around town and he is always friendly.  Lee and Carol are great people and I am...

Buyers are ready! We're ready for them - and you as a Seller should be too. Don't wait to get your Home or Land listed. Make sure your Realtor has those professional photos done and positioned on all the top real estate sites for buyers to find. Buyers are looking for homes 365 days a year!  If your property is Off the Market and you think it's better to "let it rest until Spring", we advise Sellers to have their property listed and on the market no later than the end of February.  There is no such thing as taking your home off the market for the winter! One great thing about our area is the four mild seasons and we love showing off those photos. Buyers are looking now. Yes, Spring is a great time and beautiful season of the year for us here in the NC, GA and TN mountains. Buyers are se...

As the winter weather fills our days here in the Murphy NC mountains, don’t forget to feed your wild bird friends.  Not all bird seed mixes will suit all wild birds. Birds will often sort through mixed seed and discard what they do not want. Typically, less waste occurs if you provide only one type of food per feeder, rather than mixed birdseed. Experts recommend black oil sunflower seed as one of the best single seeds to attract a variety of birds to your feeder. Insect-eating birds, such as woodpeckers, chickadees and nuthatches, will benefit from additional suet in the wintertime. Suet cakes can be purchased at feed and garden stores and are available almost everywhere. The location of the food is also important. Keep your feeder a safe distance - at least eight to 10 feet - from pro...

Yes, winter is a great time to invest in owning land in the mountains. Winter is some of the best times to preview properties here in the mountains. As the leaves have fallen from most of the trees this gives you a greater advantage in seeing the surrounding areas and homes as well as the ridges and lay of the land. View lots, pasture, unrestricted, large parcels or in a subdivision; you’ll find some great values for investing in your future through land in the western NC, north GA or east TN mountain areas. 42 Unrestricted Acres - Spring fed pond, creek, ridge tops and gentle building areas20 Unrestricted Acres - Paved road access, mountain & pasture views from this acreage2.46 Unrestricted Acres - Seasonal views - year round after building, gentle rolling land2.44 Lakefront Lot - Moun...

 Today our Thankful Thursday is for these four mild seasons we have to enjoy!In Florida it was always hot and hotter, but being able to celebrate the changing seasons it's so much fun to decorate. Our Cherokee County NC and surrounding areas in NC and GA love to decorate as the season changes.Our granddaughter, Notla Brielle, is having more fun sorting and lining up the pumpkins in the field, but she'll have to pick some out for our roadside mailbox display back home. This change in the weather is wonderful!We’re also thankful to be living in the Murphy, North Carolinamountains and have family and friends close by. Lee & Carol Barbour - The Mountain Living Team  828.361.9713      MountainLivingTeam@gmail.com
