Today's changing work landscape has made it possible for more people to work at home, one of the reasons many people are making big changes geographically. In general there seems to be a North to South migration underway. Other folks, from within N.C. and beyond, are buying second homes on the coast, no longer deferring their dreams.
What exactly attracts people to the Crystal Coast? https://www.crystalcoastnc.org/ It's not just the beach itself. It's the outdoor life in general, and the freedom of movement and fresh air that affords you. There are miles of walking trails, biking trails, kayaking trails, and numerous ferries linking islands and mainlands. There's boating, and fishing and shelling, great restaurants and shops, in quaint historic towns at either end of the span of the Crystal Coast. You could explore for a decade and not see it all.
And then there's the weather: Winters are mild, and in fact are the best time to go for sunrise and sunset walks, if you want to watch the sun rise and set directly over the ocean on our south facing island, is from October through April or May. Summers can get hot, but who cares when you can cool off in the water!
Our market continues to be strong in 2022 and we still don't have enough inventory for everyone who wishes to move here! If you own a property in Carteret County and are thinking of taking advantage of this strong seller's market please give me a call. I would like to hear your story, and show you how I might position your home for sale. My job is to make your transition happen smoothly, and profitably. It looks like homes are selling themselves, but not so! Notice that a number of listings come back on the market? Working with someone who knows how to avoid the pitfalls in a multiple offer situation is essential to your sale.
Putting a home on the market is not a one-size-fits all proposition! I offer a competitive, tiered approach to commission, with various levels of service based on your actual, particular needs. With office back-up, and reputable contractors at the ready, my personal approach is direct, up-front, one-to-one, highly responsive service.
And buyers! Whether you rent for a week or so, take a look around first, or are ready to buy right now, I'd love to show you what's available. First I will hook you up with a subscription on the MLS. That way we can tailor your search to your needs. And you can catch properties the minute they come on the market. Check out the "communities" section of this website. That way you can get some ideas of which area you'd enjoy the most.
Then, when it comes time to buy, my training and background have given me proven negotiation skills, essential in any market.
- Help you view homes virtually if necessary
- Make sure you get all the facts you need during the Due Diligence period.
- Negotiate skillfully and zealously, and with the goal of "win-win" for all parties concerned.
- Support you every step of the way, up to closing and beyond.
I am happy to say that as 2021 came to a close I was honored to be in the top 20% of agents at Keller Williams Crystal Coast! Thank you so much to the buyers and sellers who have entrusted me with their business.
