Buying a home?

A vow was made this winter to appreciate and embrace
any heat and humidity that comes our way this Summer and Fall. Just
another reason why I love North Carolina!

Living in North Carolina
2014 ushers in an interesting time. While the current
state of our country might have one focusing on an economic recovery, a debt ceiling,
or deficits and downgrades we should really take time to pause and think about
the past. 150 yrs ago the US experienced turmoil of a different type and
embarked upon the Civil War or the War of Northern Agression, if you prefer.
Anyway, have a look at some of these
historic photos. While you are out and about, check out some
of our historical landmarks.
Raleigh voted one of the best places to live and work!

institutions as well as the NFL's Carolina Panthers and the NBA's Bobcats

Pinehurst is widely known as the golf capitol of
America! 2014 welcomes the Men's and Women's US Open Championship at the
famed Pinehurst #2 where fan favorite Phil Mickelson hopes to complete his
career grand slam.
Has your housing bubble popped? ....Home prices may be off record high levels and inventory sits
longer, but if you are in the market; you are going to benefit from lower prices
and record low interest rates.
Now may be yet another great time to
re-finance or purchase
a home. Inventories are high, home prices appear to have stabilized
and it has spurred a little bit of a buying frenzy in 2013 YTD according to
economic stats. It certainly seems to be a Buyer's Market.
The lowest rates in history re-affirm the fact that it's a great time to
purchase or refinance.
