Moving Day Tips For First-Time Homeowners

Contributed by Amy Craft
Even though experts say that the housing bubble is about to pop, the surge of first-time homeowners is not slowing down. As per Reuters’ update on the real estate market, almost 30% of all home sales in early 2022 were made by first-time homebuyers.
For many, this new milestone represents a fresh start rife with potential. However, before you can move into your hard-earned-dream home, there’s the important matter of moving in first. Since moving into a home isn't just about lugging in boxes, here’s how to do it right:

Hire movers with special services
Moving into your own home can be a lot more demanding than moving into a rental property because this usually means that you’re bringing more possessions.
As such, rather than taking on this responsibility solo, it’s a huge help to have professional movers onboard. Aside from helping you transport your items from point A to point B, an AskMoney guide to c ...

June 2022 Around the Azalea Coast | updates and happenings from beautiful Southeastern Coastal North Carolina

Updates and Happenings from beautiful Southeastern Coastal North Carolina.

“Work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. The other four balls-- family, health, friends, integrity-- are made of glass. If you drop one of these, it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, perhaps even shattered.”
- Gary Keller, Founder of Keller Williams


What's Up | our favorite local bands
Painted Man is great and does local shows like at American Fish Company in Southport. They are from Myrtle Beach, but come up this way frequently. - Carey McClure, Broker/Realtor®
Machine Gun and Jam Sandwich Band are the groups we love to go see play locally! - Nancy Baldridge, Listing Coordinator

7 Reasons Buyers Need a Real Estate Agent When Buying New Construction

Being a homeowner is about much more than the walls that are around you. An experienced real estate agent understands all aspects of purchasing a home, from finding the neighborhood that best fits your lifestyle, to the financial intricacies of negotiation and closing.
If you are a buyer considering new construction for your next home, working with a real estate agent will ensure that you have a professional who is looking out for your interests.

1. No Additional Cost
Working with a buyer's agent does not cost a prospective homeowner any additional fees, and does not increase the price of a new construction home. Buyer's agents are paid at closing by the builder/developer. Most real estate agents hav ...
