  Two Of The Most Affordable States In The United States by Tony Jarrett of Allen tate REALTORS
We have written in recent blog posts that now is the time to buy your next home in North Carolina and South Carolina. Combine low mortgage rates and lower housing prices, and you have an incredible housing value.  We believe these will be the days we all look back and wish we had bought another house.  As billionaire investor John Paulson recently said – “If you don’t own a home, buy one. If you own one home, buy another one. If you … (0 comments)

greensoro real estate market: How to Prepare for a Home Inspection - 08/01/11 10:20 AM
 
How to Prepare for a Home Inspection by Amanda Serra of Allen Tate REALTORS
Most people would think about the inspection of their home the day before the home inspector is scheduled to arrive. But if you are planning to sell your home it is always good practice to take care of some of the potential issues before you put your house on the market.
Is the banister to the deck and/or the stairs loose?  Is there chipping paint on the window frame? If the house was built before 1978, lead-based paint is a concern. And depending on the loan … (3 comments)

greensoro real estate market: Are all Insurance Agents Created Equal? - 07/18/11 10:56 AM
Are all Insurance Agents Created Equal?
By Robin Price of Allen Tate
Ten years ago, you didn’t expect to turn on the television and see insurance companies battling it out for commercial time in between your favorite shows. You also didn’t see them as some of the biggest sponsors of the sporting event of the year, the Super Bowl.
Times have changed though—and some of the big insurance companies out there are spending millions of dollars each year to tell you that you can save 15% in 15 minutes.
Their focus is price-driven and I understand why. Customers want to save … (0 comments)

greensoro real estate market: What To Consider When Making A Price Adjustment - 07/14/11 12:37 PM
What To Consider When Making A Price Adjustment by Stephanie Gossett of Allen Tate REALTORS
Does the following scenario sound familiar?
You’ve had several showings on your home and no one has commented directly on price. You’re hearing:
“Need another bedroom.” “Need bigger backyard.” “Want a little more space.” What do these comments mean? It may be that potential buyers are seeing other homes in the same price range but with additional features (another bedroom, a bigger backyard or more square footage). If these are the kinds of comments you are hearing, talk to your Realtor. It may be that … (3 comments)

Summer on the Move By Phyllis Brookshire of Allen Tate REALTORS
What is it about these long summer days that keep us moving? If you’re like me, you’re always trying to fit in just one more thing. Sometimes there are just not enough hours in the day, even though the days are longer. Maybe I’m remembering those cold December days and I want to savor every bit of summer I can!
These days, you can stay connected even when you’re dashing here and there. I sometimes wonder what I ever did before having a smartphone and an iPad.
In business, … (0 comments)

greensoro real estate market: Pre-Vacation Home Security Tips - 07/12/11 10:25 AM
Pre-Vacation Home Security Tips by Tom Gongaware of Allen Tate REALTORS
Here are a few suggestions for your pre-vacation home security checklist:
If you have an alarm system, activate it! Cheaper technology can include timers on a few lights in the house. Set them to turn on at dusk and off at dawn. I like leaving a radio on. If the lights don’t turn away the crooks maybe Lady Gaga will. Check all the doors and windows and make sure they’re locked and secure. Garage door too. Stop the newspaper delivery. Tell your neighbors that you’ll be gone and give them … (1 comments)
