What makes a house a Home ?

A house is more than just a roof over our heads.   It's where experiences are shared and memories are made.  It's a place that you can call your own and where we find solace from the day.   It is more than just a house, it's your HOME.  

A home has a special meaning to all of us and we understand that buying or selling a home is not only a rational decision, but an emotional one as well.  A decision that deserves attention to detail, personal care, understanding, expertise, and a commitment to excellence.  Our passion has always been about helping people.

2013 Best Places to Buy and Sell
With two months remaining before the home-buying season opens, sellers have a huge advantage. In tight markets, such as the top five “Best Places to Sell,” sellers benefit from better prices than they’ve seen in years. In our five “Best Places to Buy,” buyers will find plentiful inventory and prices that haven’t experienced the increases others have seen during the past year.

Best Places to Buy
Asheville, N.C. Real estate’s a good deal in western North Carolina, where you can enjoy the Smokies and the Blue Ridge mountains for less today than in 2012. Prices are down 0.40 percent year-over-year, and listings are lingering on market for a median 149 days, making Asheville one of the slowest-selling markets in the nation. There are slightly fewer homes on the market than last year, but inventory is certain to grow with the onset of the home-buying season.

​​Rent vs Buy Market Myths

​Trulia Pro Blogs September 27th, 2013

Myth: Rising home prices and mortgage rates make it more expensive to buy than to rent.
Fact: Homeownership remains cheaper than renting nationally and in all of the 100 largest metro areas. But rising mortgage rates have narrowed the gap between the cost of buying and the cost of renting.
The 30-year fixed rate is now 4.80%, compared with 3.75% one year ago (according to the Mortgage Bankers Association, or MBA). This jump in rates has raised the cost of buying relative to renting. As a result, buying is 35% cheaper than renting today, versus being 45% cheaper than renting one year ago.
The key reason buying is still cheaper than renting is this: both rates and prices are rising from very low levels and are still below their long-term historical norms. But the rent versus buy math depends on your local market, as rising rates and prices have pushed a handful of metros very close to the tipping point when renting becomes cheaper.
