Comparing Jan-April 2012 with Jan-April 2013 data, in the Hickory NC area, 2012 average sold price was approximately, $164,000. 2013 sold prices for the same period is approximately $156,000. That's about a 5% drop year to year.

That said, certain areas are seeing some massive gains in value overall, 20-30% increases year to year. A lot of it will depend on the specific area as well as the type of property.

Kim Glass answered:
Hi Karen,

According to the listing, this home is not for sale. This is a Public Record listing, rather than a For Sale listing or For Rent listing. You will find the listing status at the top of each listing, above the Trulia estimate.

Hope that helps clear things up for you!

Good afternoon, Mike:
The process of patenting land in North Carolina was not complex. Anyone wanting to patent land submitted an application (also called a land entry) to a land office. The land officer then issued a warrant. Land officers included the secretary of state (1669–1776), the agents of Earl Granville (1748–76), or the county entry taker (1778–present). The warrant was taken to a surveyor who surveyed the land and sketched a plat (map) of the claim. The plat was then filed in the land office or, after 1777, recorded by the county register of deeds, and a patent for the land was issued and recorded. Land grants and related indexes are available at the North Carolina State Archives (see [North Carolina Archives, Libraries, and Societies]). If you write to the archives, furnish the full name of the grantee and the county in which the grant was made. Detailed instructions for requesting information by mail, fax or online, visit this section of the archive’s website www.archives.ncdcr.gov/mail.htm. The Granville grants and other miscellaneous papers have been indexed and can be accessed by MARS, a database of the North Carolina State Archives online at mars.archives.ncdcr.gov/BasicSearch.aspx; the Search Room at the archives has a card catalog of grants of deeds. The FHL has this collection on 522 reels of microfilm. If you appreciate an answer, please give thumbs up. For the most helpful answer, please say thanks with a best answer click. ... more

here is a little bit of information for you, but if you really want a good market evaluation to figure out what to offer, you really should work with a Realtor, your Buyers Agent to protect your interests in the purchase and to give you a more precise market evaluation of a specific home.

Actually, compared to other communities, there are relatively few foreclosures in Brunswick Forest. If you can GET a resale in the $300's, I wouldn't worry a bit about it holding its value. You can certainly build new. But even the mildest upgrades will run the price up real quick. I the resale has 90% of what you'd like to have in a home there, I think I'd go for it. ... more

Edith Karoline Jasser answered:
Looks like it, I am wondering if this is a foreclosure or short sale, it seems that it has been winterized and is vacant.... And yes it could very well be mold, with a vacant home like that you want to make sure
you have everything checked out carefully. I am less worried for my buyers about a dirty tub or just simple mold, that cleaning can fix, I am more worried about hidden items, if that was not kept clean, then what else was not well taken care of.....
Good for the listing agent to though show the property the way it actually is, rather than not posting
all the bathrooms or all the floors.

By the way a quick suggestion to you, if you are serious about buying a property, work with a Buyers Agent protecting your interests and guiding you through the process.... you need advice and someone
with expertise on your side before even making an offer and ......

If you like to know about the advantages to working with a buyers agent your own Realtor, email me and I forward detailed information to you, in most if not all cases the services of a buyers agent are
free to the buyer, as for listings on the multiple listing service listed by brokerages and their agents,
the buyers agent is paid by the Seller's side at the closing....

Good Luck to you

Edith Karoline Jasser answered:
You know this is always a difficult question to answer without having seen the property.... As you know
curb appeal is one of the important first impressions for a potential buyer, and as for all of us
in the Midwest the winter month sometimes do but many times do not show our homes in the best light.
Therefore I strongly suggest you connect with a good agent in your area Madison Wisconsin, yes?
It is really not so much about the market, if there are less homes on the market, you have less competition, and those buyers who want to move in the summer are looking now ...
But the real reason for you to put your home on the market is what your NEEDS are, when do you need to sell, and what are you doing once it is sold, and you need a good market evaluation of your home by an experienced local Realtor so that you price your home market friendly and competitively and your home inside and out needs to be ready for showings, it may need some updating, some removing or moving around some furniture, declutter, in other words staging your home so it will be the most attractive to potential buyers and a good Realtor will be very helpful with that.

Let me know if you need a good recommendation I gladly send one your way.
Good Luck to you

Lots have not been reevaluated yet in Duplin Co/ River Landing. We are told possible in 2015 that will occur. My understanding is that they will not adjust these values, but good luck. Homes sales are improving in the area and we hope the lot sales will begin to improve this year. Things are looking up! ... more

This is a question that comes up frequently in this market. It really is not a great option considering the fact that interest rates are so low and we are lucky to have access to several low/no down payment loan products. A knowledgeable mortgage broker/loan officer can guide you with all aspects of financing and even assist you if you have credit issues. If you still want to go the rent to own route, find a good lawyer to represent your interests. ... more

Rose Cramer answered:
I would say it has. Cornelius is a very popular area for buyers. Right now the inventory is extremely low and this is helping bring home prices up. Also the amount of Foreclosures has decreased. You will still find some short sales, but foreclosures have decreased. If you are comparing home prices to 2011 I would say it is a save bet to look at least to a 3% increase depending on the home. I am available to give you market comparables of any property you may be interested in. Give me a call at 704-607-7514 I am here to serve you. ... more
