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! 

  • Charlotte features many of the nations top banking institutions as well as the NFL's Carolina Panthers and the NBA's Bobcats (soon to be the Hornets again) not to mention the home of many NASCAR teams up the road in Mooresville.

  • 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.

Always wear appropriate footwear and bring along a first-aid kit.  Never attempt to cross a river or stream above a waterfall; one slip may be your last.  Other than the simple legal disclaimer, enjoy a hiking adventure TODAY!!
