Volunteering for the Wells Fargo Championship

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!

Is spring on your mind?

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.

Keeping the family together

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.

Best Time To Sell ?….Best Time To Buy?

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.

Searching for the Perfect Home ?….

Today there are so many options for potential home buyers looking for the most efficient way to search for their perfect home. Some potential buyers will get in their cars and drive around checking around various neighborhoods particularly if there are areas they are particularly interested in. However, today the most used form for a home search is the internet. There are so many websites available to do searches and often you can do this in the comfort of your home and on your own time. Our website at The Guilliams Team is an easy way to search for properties currently on the market and we try to provide all the information that we can on each property including many visual tours. This allows potential home buyers to learn and see what they can about a property to determine if this is a property you wish to visit. It would be our pleasure to work with you as you search for your perfect home so if we can help with your search give us a call today at 803-984-7478 and let us show you all the many tools available to help in your search.

Lets start the new year off right

As we prepare for a new year there are several opportunities that people need to consider as part of their financial future.  For many reasons we all believe that the start of a new year is the perfect time to wipe the slate clean and get organized and ready to commit to goals and dreams.  Here are few important things to consider as you enter a new year.

*  Is this the time to refinance?  Interest rates are still at some of the lowest rates ever , but many experts expect the interest rates to begin to climb.

*  Should I consider buying my first home?  Investing in real estate is still one of the most sound investments folks can make

*  Are there advantages to consider in possibly buying a larger home?  With the interest rates still low and many options available for potential buyers now is the perfect time to explore all the many options.

If we can assist you in determining what is the right path to take when it comes to your home options give us a call today and let us help you.  We want to help everyone start the new year with achievable goals and a plan in place.  Best of luck to everyone in 2013!
