Curb appeal. I am lucky to live in a neighborhood where most of us work hard to have nice curb appeal and an attractive neighborhood. This time of year we all have spring fever and are planning what we need to be doing to get ready for warm weather. Here a few tips to keep in mind as you get your homes ready for spring.
* Prune trees and your shrubs
* Put down lyme and fertilizer in your yard so your yard will be the first to green up this spring
* Spread grass seed if you didn’t do it in the fall
* Be thinking about prepping your flowerbeds with pine straw or mulch
* If you are thinking about adding new plants check with a local nursery for help and guidance before you buy.
Keep in mind that people constantly drive through neighborhoods “looking” to see what is on the market so you want to make sure that your home is attractive and “The One” the people will remember.
We work with a lot of clients who move to this area for new careers. Lately, however, we have been working with a number of clients who are relocating to the area to be closer to children and grandchildren. Being close to family is so important and a value that many of us share. This area is a tremendous location to work, raise families and retire and there is so much available for everyone from kids to seniors. If you have family that has mentioned relocating to the area I want to share my website that has numerous useful links may be helpful to gather information on the area and to see what is available in the home market. I am proud of this area and glad to call it home so if I can do anything to help your family move into the area and have a smooth transition please give me a call today.

Clients always ask us two questions.
1. When is the best time to sell a house?
2. When is the best time to buy a house?
There really is no “best” time to buy or sell. The buyers market has been excellent lately, however, due to low inventory on the market in numerous price points now is also an excellent time to sell. If you have been thinking about selling and you have been on the fence now is the time to put your house on the market. There is a tremendous amount of activity in the market and there are a number of people relocating to this area therefore it is a prime time to have your home on the market. Again, homes at every price point are in demand and with the low inventory of available homes your chance of selling has been greatly enhanced , particularly if you have your home priced accurately.
If you are thinking of selling give me a call and let me help you access the market, determine an attractive sell price and let me help you get your house on the market! Now is the time.
I just wanted to touch base with you to wish you a happy Labor Day and to share with you one of the newest marketing tools we have available to our clients. We have developed a Home Tour Magazine that is distributed throughout our area , with over 15000 printed copies in circulation and a digital version used in broad distributions. We feel this will give our client’s homes a tremendous advantage in the current market and it is a free service we offer. We hope you will enjoy the digital magazine attached and feel free to share it with your friends and family who may have a real estate need .
We look forward to hearing your comments and again hope your Holiday weekend is great

In just a couple of weeks one of the most outstanding PGA golf tournaments in the world will be coming to Charlotte’s Quail Hollow Country Club. This is the 11th year for the Wells Fargo Championship and my family looks forward to it every year. I actually volunteer and work the event for a couple of days and it is always fun to get up close with the golfers and I especially enjoy the conversations with the pros and their caddies as we work inside the ropes . I’ll be working as a laser operator and will be on hole number 5 on Thursday and on number 7 on Friday. A couple of years ago Dustin Johnson hit his drive 389 yards on number 5 and the PGA officials in the tower didn’t believe we measured it correctly and sent the Shot Link Officials down to see if we knew what we were doing . It was so funny to see their faces when they realized we had it correct and he had indeed hit it so far.
The Wells Fargo is just another reason why the Charlotte area is such a desirable area to live and people continue to relocate here everyday. If you are out enjoying the golf stop by and say hello and if you are looking to relocate to our area we would be glad to assist you. Give us a call.
Have fun and I’ll see you on the golf course!
