Faith T answered:

The price history data we display on a home is generally reported from each property's respective county records which is gathered by a third-party data collector. Because this data is considered public record, I am unable to edit the information. When discrepancies are identified in county records, the third party data collector corrects this information and forwards it to Trulia.

Again, I am sincerely sorry for the trouble regarding the erroneous information for your home. I definitely understand this is a frustrating process, especially to have to wait for the next data collection cycle. Please be assured this is only temporary and our developers are looking for ways to improve the tools and capabilities we have to edit information on our display.

Thank you for using Trulia!

Hello, Im a Charlotte native here! There is not any particular area for first time home buyers in Charlotte, as this would violate fair housing laws and equal housing opportunities. Usually first time home buyers are offered grants for down payment assistance and some of these programs require certain neighborhoods. Generally, a first time home buyer can live where ever they qualify for a home at. It also depends on your preference and what you want in a home. I help first time home buyers often in Charlotte and I also offer a free workshop for first time home buyers once a month. If you want more information about this workshop or have any other questions please feel free to contact me.

Neighborhoods with few if any investment homes. When a investors buy up an area and it turns into a place of multiple rentals, the quality and maintenance tends to go down, and so do the values. While many renters might take good care of things, too many don't.
I would encourage you to find homes in good areas, without too many other rentals. Good schools, easy commutes and other location attractions will make for a good investment property.

Victory Property Management answered:
What makes owner financing appeal to many borrowers is that they will not have to give a full 20% down payment. In exchange, the lender (aka the property owner/seller) will charge 1 to 2% above conventional mortgage interest. The current mortgage rate is 3.61%. So 5% is reasonable.

If you can get a buyer to pay 20% down, then by all means go for it but many buyers will want to put less.

Ridiculously low if you want to compare taxes here with the Northeast or the Mid-West in general. My daughter and family pay about $12,000 a year for their $350,000 home in East Grand Rapids, Michigan. The same home in Tryon would be about $1700 for the City of Tryon plus another $1700 or so for the County. Total about $3400 a year. You'd have to live in a singlewide in South Carolina to pay less. ... more

Yes. Fractional's are still growing in popularity, especially those which are deeded. At Wrightsville Beach, the Sundance homes are the latest additions to the market with owner friendly documents, high demand locations and upscale amenities.

Existing owners have first right of purchase on units that become available for sale. For that reason, resales rarely become available on the open market and are not usually listed in the MLS.

As of August 2015, the developer had only one Co-Ownership Interest available for sale and has begun a wait list with plans to add several new properties to accommodate demand. Current availability may be seen at You may reserve on a first call basis at 910.620.2570.

Hello Laurence,

There are currently 3 townhomes for sale on Lillibridge Dr priced at $234,000, $235,000, and $244,500. The more expensive unit is about 300sf larger than the other 2. There are 2 other townhomes on Lillibridge that have contracts in place contingent on the buyers selling their home.

There are 2 homes for sale on Lillibridge Dr priced at $319,900 and $435,000. The more expensive home is 7 years newer (2013 vs 2006) and about 400sf larger than the other home.

In the last year, 4 townhomes and 3 homes have sold on Lillibridge Dr, so you would expect most or all of these properties to turn over within the year based on the current rate of sales. I don't think there is any particular reason for motivating these sellers to sell. I would love to discuss this with you in further detail. If you are not already working with an agent exclusively I would love to help you find your retirement home in the area. I can set you up with a client portal that will email you any new homes that come available based on your criteria. Please contact me at 910-524-6834 or at at your convenience and we can discuss Brunswick Forest in more detail as well as how I can help you meet your retirement home goals. I look forward to hearing from you! Thank you!

Laurie Holycross answered:
It all has to do with inventory. We have less than 2 months of inventory in the Portland RMLS. That means if they stopped listing homes, and sold them at the current rate, all the houses would be sold in less than 2 months. This is called a seller's market. When there gets to be more then 6 months of inventory it will switch to a buyer's market. One thing that impacts the inventory rate is new construction. During the down-turn of the market builders quit building. Now that there are more buyers and better interest rates builders have started building again...but that takes time. There is a entire process for new construction that takes about 2 years, so it has put a high demand on resale homes. Also, interest rates are amazing so there are a lot of buyers that wouldn't be in the market if interest rates were higher. Another thing to look at is a seller's perspective. They feel if they go to sell their house it might be hard to find a replacement so they stay were they are at. Also, finding a rental is very difficult right now. Lots of people are moving up but keeping their smaller house as a rental property because they can make more money renting it out verses selling. ... more
