Triangle Area Real Estate News & Information

The Research Triangle Area has so much to offer, world class medical facilities, a rich, vibrant arts and restaurant culture, booming economy, easy access to a major airport (RDU) as well as the mountains and ocean. Best of all home prices while rising are still a bargain when compared to major metropolitan areas along the east coast.

Stunning Charleston Contemporary

SOLD in 1 DAY!

With more than 30 years of building experience I can honestly say this 4 year old home is built better than new.

 With three full bedrooms and 2.5 baths offered at $312,000 this is a spectacular home. 

This home was custom built for the current owners and they did it right. Start off with the fact that this home is an EnergyStar® rated home. Unlike most builder energy efficient programs, the EnergyStar® program means an independent third party was paid to inspect and certify that the builder built a home guaranteed to save you money on your utility bills. Most builders don’t build EnergyStar® homes because of the additional cost and third-party

Communication With My NC Homes

Buying and Selling with My NC Homes

Real estate agents have many communication styles. There are those who are high-touch and constantly call, email, or text to keep you updated on the market; some are more laid back waiting for you to reach out to them when you've found something of interest. With the My NC Homes team, you have as much or as little communication as you want when searching for, buying, or selling your home.

We understand that time is critical when buying and selling, especially in this market. Some of our favorite home buyers became clients when they found what looked like their forever home and wanted to see the house as soon as possible.

Looking for a Condo, Townhouse or Single Family Home

"4-bedrooms and 3-baths and at least 2500 sqf."

So often this is how buyers start off our initial conversations. If we were like most brokers this information and a price range and we'd be off and running. The question is , "Are we really adding value and helping the buyer if this is all we discuss?" This is one example of where the "Experience" in our logo pays off. We understand that when it comes to buying a home, everyone is unique. Because of our extensive building background we know that square footage is much less important than layout. We've all seen examples of wasted square footage in a home. Yes the number of bedrooms and baths are a consideration, but if this is the extent of the information we start with, a lot of time and perhaps even

Everybody Calm Down! This is NOT 2008

Last week realtor.com released the results of a survey that produced three major revelations:

  • 53% of home purchasers (first-time and repeat buyers) currently in the market believe a recession will occur this year or next.
  • 57% believe the next recession will be as bad or worse than 2008.
  • 55% said they would cancel plans to move if a recession occurred.

Since we are currently experiencing the longest-ever economic expansion in American history, there is reason to believe a recession could occur in the not-too-distant future. And, it does make sense that buyers and sellers remember the horrors of 2008 when they hear the word recession.
