Testimonials

Moving is stressful and real estate transacting, whether buying or selling, is emotional. The team you use can ease emotions or add drama. We have found that buyers who choose their vendors based on digital review or paid review sites have unreliable results, at best. In our decades of experience in real estate, we have witnessed the rise of the digital professional over the word of mouth professional, and would like to offer our vendors who are proven beyond paid review or page rank. If you are looking to buy or sell a home in Raleigh-Durham, contact a member of our team to begin your search.

Lenders

A reputable lender will offer fair terms and competitive rates derived from your present financial status, adjusted income, and credit history.

Aging in Place

The Benefits of Aging in a Community

When considering housing, we frequently find ourselves counseling our clients that there's comfort in being around people who share common interests, goals, and challenges. While not necessarily for everyone, the comfort many find in a community doesn't wane with age; it actually deepens. Whether it's proudly talking about grandchildren or lamenting the fact that our eyes aren't as good as they used to be, it helps to be around people who not only understand what we are saying but actually feel the same joys and concerns as well. That's why many boomers are deciding to move into either an active adult community or planned multi-generational communities. In the latest 55places National Housing Survey, they were

Upgrading Your Stater Home

Upgrading Your Starter Home

First-time home buyers make up 33% of all homebuyers in the US market, according to the National Association of Realtors in their 2019 end of year report. Most homes are previously owned. Overall 13% opt for a new construction. On average first homes were 1,850 square feet, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and were built around 1990. This is what we refer to as a "starter home." Most often it's where new couples or early career professionals who are looking to move out of their rentals for something with more predictability and control, and so that they can begin building equity.

OK, we'll admit it; we are biased as this is where we live, work and play. North Carolina was ranked # 3 for inbound states. 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.

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.

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
