I just found some great information for anyone in Upstate South Carolina that is thinking about buying or selling real estate. Well, really I guess it applies to everybody everywhere. But since I only cover Anderson Oconee and Pickens Counties, we'll just stay focused on my stomping grounds: Not all real estate practitioners are REALTORS®. The term REALTOR® is a registered trademark that identifies a real estate professional who is a member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION of REALTORS® and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics. read the five reasons why it pays to work with a REALTOR® at 8 Reasons Why You Should Work With a REALTOR

Fannie Mae just released the results of an interesting survey about real estate, home ownership and the economy. During October and December 2010, Fannie Mae asked both home owners and renters about their opinions on home investment as an investment, their household finances (nosey ain't they?), their views on how homes are financed and their confidence in the economy.

According to the National Association of Realtors®, the number of pending home sales is down slightly in January 2011. And I hate to be the bearer of bad news but this is the second straight month that the number of pending home sales has declined for the entire US. One good sign is that even though the numbers are lower, they are still 20.6% above the the extreme low point of June 2010. The NAR® Pending Home Sales Index is a forward-looking indicator and is talking about contracts and not closings. There is a world of difference between being under contract and walking out of the attorney's office after a closing...... Anyway, read all about the numbers for the South, the entire US and most importantly, for Upstate South Carolina at Nationally Pending Home Sales Decline But Increase i...

There is nothing wrong with being confident. At least when you realistically have a reason to be confident that is..... On Tuesday, the National Association of Home Builders released the NAHB/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index and it shows that builders are NOT confident about the housing market.

Home Price Stabilization Seen in 4th Quarter 2010 I am so glad to see the most recent report on existing home sales in the 4th Quarter of 2010 from NAR® shows a 15.4% jump from the previous quarter! Wow it appears that some buyers are finally taking advantage of the incredible affordability levels and interest rates. I just hope more people are able to take advantage of this opportunity before the interest rates on mortgages climb any more!

Private Transfer Fees or Taxes on Real Estate in South Carolina It has been some time since I wrote about this troubling new strategy in real estate. Private Transfer Taxes or Private Transfer Taxes are a new development in property law, whereby a property owner adds a covenant to the deed of a home prior to sale of the property. This covenant attaches to that particular sale of the property, in addition to all future sales of the property, often as long as ninety-nine years. Unless the people of South Carolina are made aware of this and work to stop Private Transfer Fees or Taxes, then we will have no one to blame but ourselves later!

I have been pretty busy lately so I have not been able to post links to the latest articles I have added on my website. Be sure to check out these articles: First, I posted an interesting video that NAR is going to be running on TV this year about the the value of home ownership.

We have been members of our local YMCA almost as long as we have lived here. There are other gyms, but we have always stuck with the Y. Not only does our Y have state-of-the-art exercise machines, it also has a huge pool, a warm therapy pool (which is twice the size of a normal residential pool), an outdoor kids pool and a nice indoor track up top. But the reason we stay with the YMCA has little to do with those things. The reason we stay is that we believe in the Y and its youth programs. My husband claims that the best days of his childhood were spent at Y day camp during the summer. It’s where he learned skills that have served him all of his life, and he remembers that…he remembers how important that was in his life. So, we stick with the Y…they still have programs that teach kids ...
