Hello Sherber1979!

Congrats on making Charlotte your new home. You aren't too far from us now so hopefully that transition will not be too tough. I would love to assist you in your relocation. If you could email me with some details on location, price, etc, that would be wonderful. I have several Investor Clients who have lots of Rental Property in Charlotte and surrounding so we may have a source there. The market has definitely picked up so not alot of Inventory but I am sure we can find something that suits your needs!

Best,
Debbie

Good afternoon, Vinny!

Congrats on your decision to make Charlotte your new home! I can certainly make some suggestions based on what you have provided but purchase price and style/type of home and the location on your emaployer will most certainly help.

Marvin and Weddington in Union County are known for great schools, larger estate styled home sites and lower taxes. Marvin is very close to shopping (Blakeney and Stonecrest in S. Charlotte). You will find larger newer homes and great community amenities.

In Ballantyne (S. Charlotte) I have alot of Clients looking at the Ardrey School District. Newer homes, close to shopping with Stonecrest and Blakeney. You will have access to highways for a commute.

Also, the Myers Park School district is also very desirable. Location is agrueably A+ but with that comes price. Alot of older homes that have been updated. Expect to get less space for your money.

I would love to learn more so that I can provide more specific, not general information. Job location, lifestyle, style of home, price and where you are coming from all play into things. We have alot of really great areas. A good tour of Charlotte and a sampling of what you can get for your money would be a great first step.

My Company has a great Relo package and I would love to get that in your hands!

Please let me know how I can help!

Best of luck!
Debbie

If you're in the Lake Wylie area in Mecklenburg County, taxes are higher. Also, this area is more developed with $100-$250k mass production builder homes. Union county is more rural, you get a bit more land and the taxes are much lower than Mecklenburg county. More "estate" style homesites available with .5+acre lots.

Call me and I'll help you with your move, I found a home in Dilworth like you mentioned in your last question!

Hi Sussie
If you take your home buying process in steps and have those steps in the right order you substantially improve your prospects. The first is to find an experienced ethical loan officer you can trust. Than determine the loan that will best serve you and the monthly payment you can handle. Than you will have a purchase price to research your market. Than obtain a list of every house for sale in your price range in the area you would like to live in and at least drive by every one of them. Than have your agent show you the best ones. With this process you will learn your market and it will not be necessary to rely on anyones opinion of value. Go to Your-Road-Home.com and you will find a step by step process that will serve you well. The articles are the seminar that 25,0000 first time home buyers have attended. The articles are numbered to help clarify the proceedure. Read all of them and you will become one savvy home owner. Most importantly find experienced ethical people to work for you that you can trust. The site outlines a very specific process for finding and indentifying those people. Good Luck. Owning a home will change your life, for the better. Stephen Webber. Your-Road-Home.com ... more

Hi Robyn

Talk to the many agents who will respond to your post or
go to Open Houses and see if any of the agents hosting the home will
work for you.

Check with your friends or at Chruch.

Good luck

Ruth

Hi - this is a question for a mortgage lender. Your income will play a big part in the equation so your best bet is to go ahead and speak with a lender to formulate a plan. It is way too early to apply for a loan, but not to early to plan for your future. Best success in your new career! Kathleen Turner ... more

Yes Brokers do have exclusive listings. A Broker has to be a Realtor and join the Multiple Listing Service in order for their listings to be entered into the MLS. Not all Brokers are Realtors and if they are not, they can not provide this very valuable service to their clients. ... more

Typically they do not counter, they usually have several offers and choose the best one. My best advise is to offer the highest amount you feel comfortable with, if you do not get it you do not want to be left saying I wish I would have offered another 1000 dollars. ... more

Lexie Longstreet answered:
That's right. HUD gives owner occupants the first shot. Usually investors can bid after 14 or 15 days. I would look for HUD homes that have been on the market longer than that Owner Occupant First Look period. You can also look for the homes that require the most work. Owner Occupants shy away from those homes... as they are buying them "as is".
The investor market is very competitive. Most homes get multiple offers in just a few days so be diligent in you looking and have an agent ready to place an offer for you as soon as you see one you like. Place a strong bid... and pay cash if you can. It seems like most investors getting the homes are paying cash. Good luck.

Cindy & Tony Altieri answered:
An appraiser can use any comps he wants, which seems very unfair. We have not experienced an appraiser using FC or Short Sales on amy of our recent closings/appraisals for our homes we have closed on. To be fair In your situation, both the seller & you should agree on comps not in FC or Short Sale to come up with a price.. If there are no comps that have sold regularly, than that's another thing. But to be fair to both, you should use normal "Sold" properties, ... more
