The New Bridge in Our Future: Cape Fear Crossing

There is a new bridge in the future of the Cape Fear region, and properties in Northern Brunswick County may be impacted by construction of the NCDOT project, which is currently in the planning and environmental study stage. Home buyers purchasing in Northern Brunswick County, including Leland, Bellville, etc., need to understand the proposed Cape Fear Crossing road and bridge project.

Cape Fear Crossing, a proposal for a 9.5-mile road and a high-level bridge over the Cape Fear River, was developed as a solution to improve both traffic flow and freight transportation from Brunswick County's portions of U.S. 17 and Interstate 140 to U.S. 421. The area of impact on the New Hanover County side of the project is near the North Carolina Port of Wilmington. NCDOT officials say that the project will ease congestion on the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge, and will improve evacuation routes in the event of a hurricane or other emergency. 

The Cape Fear Crossing project is, as of now ...

Beautiful lawns benefit the environment, increase curb appeal, and even have been shown to improve wellness and reduce stress.

So get busy and use these six tips to create your own luscious lawn.


Tip No. 1: Plant the Right Grass for Your Region 
North Carolina consists of three regions: Mountains, Piedmont, and Coastal Plain. Where you live is a significant factor in deciding what type of grass to plant.

The Mountain region, which encompasses the city of Asheville, is on the westernmost part of the state. Here, grasses suited for cool seasons fare the best. These grasses grow rapidly in the spring and fall and less actively in the summer. Tall fescue, Kentucky bluegrass, and perennial ryegrass are cool-season grasses that flourish in cooler climates and stay fairly green during the fall.

The Piedmont region, which includes Charlotte and Raleigh (though Ral ...

What Questions to Ask a Real Estate Agent When Selling

If you are considering selling your home, one of the first actions you need to take is engaging a real estate agent. 

But, there is a lot more than signing a contract with your kids' soccer coach's wife or the friend of a friend. These agents may be the best to get your home sold, but are you sure? You should enter into a seller's contract with both enthusiasm and confidence!

Your home may be your most valuable physical financial asset; don't trust the process of selling your home to without thoroughly discussing the process and reviewing your options. Hiring a real estate agent is a huge decision. You should search for real estate professionals, choose 3-5 of those, and then interview each to find the best fit for your real estate transaction expectations.
