June 2021 | State of the Real Estate Market with Kirk Pugh, Broker/Realtor®

Kirk Pugh, on the State of the Real Estate market:
These video updates are when I normally give you a bunch of numbers and statistics and tell you how the market is, and my best advice to buyers and sellers. I'm not going to talk about numbers today. Market's great. End of story.
Not really...
My take away from today's market is, whether you are a buyer or a seller, in today's market it is absolutely vital that you have a seasoned professional helping you, either on the sell side or the buy side.
As a seller, you really need to take a careful, hard look at every offer you get on your home. As a buyer, you need to listen to your advisor and let them help you craft an offer that is likely to be accepted in this hyper-competitive market. It is very fast-paced. It is moving at the speed of light.
There are lots of reasons why we are in this situation. Increased prices due to demand, cost of materials, and cost of labor. Lots, and lots, and lots of reasons, and also because th ...

Carolina Beach North Carolina: Where We Sell with Broker/REALTOR Teri Moylan

Teri Moylan, Broker/REALTOR®, offers her knowledge of Carolina Beach, just across Snows Cut Bridge on the Atlantic Intra Coastal Waterway, and the first town on Pleasure Island.

A Top-Rated Coastal Carolina Beach Town
Carolina Beach is just south of Wilmington, North Carolina, and is a great vacation spot, and a wonderful location for people who want to buy their share of the dream and live at the beach. It's a sportsman's paradise in terms of sports fishing and boating and many other things. If you want to take surf lessons, stroll along the beach, or enjoy a dip in the ocean - which during the summer months can get up to 80 degrees.
"I've lived a lot of places, and I've visited many beaches," say Teri, "but there are not many beaches across the country where you can swim in something that feels like bath water and is still refreshing!"
Local love Carolina Beach for all that it has to offer, from the shops, the restaurants, and Britt's Donuts. The boardwalk helps ma ...

State of the Real Estate Market/Year-end Review

Kirk Pugh, Broker/Realtor with KBT Realty Group - Keller Williams, in Wilmington North Carolina, reflects on 2020, a year which is in now in hindsight.
Eight days into 2021, and Kirk sees that the new year has started with a bang.
2020 was a challenging year for everybody on many different levels, although in real estate not one, Kirk reflects. Instead of talking about numbers, success, and patting the KBT Realty Group team on the back, suffice it to say, Kirk notes, that Wilmington North Carolina has a fast-paced, rapidly growing, dynamic real estate market that is extremely beneficial for sellers right now.
Certainly we can sell a house for top-dollar, in this market, in Wilmington, today, Kirk says. The challenge is, where does that seller go? Are they trading laterally, are they downsizing either from a location standpoint or a pricing standpoint? 
For sellers today making a decision about selling, is the value of the sale great enough to buy you out of the pain-in-the- ...

What If Your House Sells so Fast You Don't Have Time to Buy Your New Home?

Here’s the ideal situation: you and your agent coordinate the sale of the house you are currently living in with the purchase of your new home.
Today, the biggest objection to putting a house on the market is being able to find and close on your new home. You may be concerned that you won't find the perfect next home, or that you won't be able to make an offer and win, or that your financing won't move smoothly.
In a fast-paced market, you are most likely confident that you will sell your current home. You are likely to have multiple offers - at or above list price - within a matter of days. And, it won’t be a problem to find a new home, one that you will love even more than the one you are selling.
Having your offer on a new home accepted and timing the close with the sale of your current home is the real challenge.

What if my house sells so quickly I end up homeless?
The most common question agents have been hearing this year is, “I’m afraid our hou ...
