Home Buyers everywhere have a list of things to accomplish as they set their sites on moving.  Starting with:

… the list goes on and on.  But what about after the offer is accepted?  How do I prepare for my relocation?

Preparing for Relocation

Don’t waste your time looking at homes online that aren’t for sale!

Are you getting the best information online?

Found our dream home

There are so many new ways for prospective buyers (and sellers) to harvest information today about real estate online.  

But there’s a problem that I find I’m continuously facing…  WRONG INFORMATION!!!

How can that be you ask?  The more popular online sites that you’re searching on have info that’s just old, out dated, and just not up to date!  
Found our dream home
I can’t tell you how many times I get a list from buyers who have spent countless hours looking online for homes they’d like to see.  

What’s so sad is unfortunately many of the homes on their list just aren’t for sale.  I had one on a list the other day that had sold 18 months ago!

But there is a way for you not waste your time and receive fresh up to date, even brand new listings to hit the market...

 Use a Realtor® in your market!  

Your Realtor® is your advocate when home searching AND all through the home buying or selling process. They’ll offer you ways to find homes that match YOUR needs in your price range.  They will KNOW what’s on the market, what’s sold etc., and you won’t waste time falling in love with a  house someone else already owns!

Here at The St. Peter HomeSelling Team we’ve created a sure fire way for our clients (and we hope future customers) to keep an eye out on what they want… 

Found our dream home

I’d like to share with you how we’ll make it real easy for you to receive information about homes that match your needs – automatically!

We are fortunate to have a great MLS – powered by MarketLinx.
And we couldn’t be more pleased with what the Triangle MLS provides for us.  It allows us to offer our online buyers and sellers an interactive, personalized website created just for them, called a Client Gateway.  Home searchers can sign up – or even home sellers that want to watch what their competition is doing ~ it’s FREE!  So what are you waiting for?

If you’re serious about buying or selling a home in Wake county ~ don’t waste your time with outdated information!  We’re here to help with serious information that you can count on!

Facts on the North Carolina Forecast – including the Raleigh (Triangle) area

With news about the economy hitting us from all sides I wanted to share with you some facts about the Triangle aside from just a Raleigh Real Estate Market Report.

First and foremost North Carolina has consistently been in the forefront for affordable housing.  According to NAR homes were more affordable in December 2008 than in any other era since 1970.

In 2008 our state welcomed the most newcomers moving in versus those moving out.  According to a whopping 55% more folks are moving into NC than are moving out.

NC Tax Credit and home sales vs. ForeclosuresLast month Governor Perdue signed a bill that could save NC homebuyers more than $30 million dollars.  NC is projected to receive $6.1 billion dollars from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (final amount is not known yet).  And of course we don’t know what form of competitive grants we’ll be awarded.

On Wednesday of last week NC received $208 million from the weatherization and energy efficiency grant.  I didn’t know there was such a thing but North Carolinians are slated to receive $131,954,536 for weatherization and $75,989,000 for the state energy program. This grant is to assist home owners (a family of four making under $44K year) weatherize their home by doing things like adding insulation where needed or upgrading their HVAC systems.

Nationally in January foreclosures filings were 18% higher compared to January 2008.  However here in North Carolina January saw a 29.3% decrease for the same period ranking it 33rd nationally.

The White House estimates that the stimulus plan will create or save 105,000 jobs in North Carolina with over 9,000 being right here in the Triangle area.

So more jobs, fewer foreclosures affecting home prices, grants to assist home owners with maintenance, and an increase in relocation to this area all point to a very rosy forecast for the Triangle!
