The end of the year can often spark some soul-searching. What happened in your life over the past 12 months—good and bad? What would you like to achieve during the year ahead? Lose weight? Travel? Try something new? Perhaps you want to find yourself a new home?
Don’t wish. Make it happen.
Could you use an extra room, or more space in your kitchen? Does your current place need a new roof or windows? If you’re spending time trying to figure out which walls to knock down and how to make improvements so your home presents a better fit for your lifestyle, maybe it’s time to find a new home that fits your needs.
At KBT Realty Group, we see a lot of people make good on their plans to move out of a home that isn’t their ideal and into one that becomes their happy place. As the year winds down, we encounter determined people who have decided to fulfill the promise they made to themselves to make this dream happen by the new year. There is no truth in “No o ...

Wilmington and the beaches are decidedly dog-friendly, with great walking trails, outdoor dining at restaurants that welcome four-legged friends, and a slew of dog parks and pup-oriented recreational activities.
In a community that embraces both your family and your pets, there are plenty of options when deciding what do for the day or evening - options that include your dog, too!
Starting in September 2019, there is a new law in North Carolina that will allow dogs (and cats) inside breweries, as long as the brewery doesn't prepare food on the premises.
Here are some of our favorite spots to grab a beer and chill with our four-legged buddies:
Front Street Brewery
Waterman's Brewing Company
Goat & Compass
Good Hops Brewing
Edward Teach Brewing
Burnt Mill Tavern
Generally, the rule for finding a restaurant that doesn't mind if you bring your d ...

Kirk Pugh jumps right into some numbers to see what that means to the real estate buyer or seller. If you are a seller today, whether you are getting a job transfer, moving to get closer to family, or needing to upsize for a growing family or downsize, the market is very much in your favor right now. "Absorbtion rate" is something that we talk about internally on the KBT Realty team. At what pace are homes that are put on the market in various price categories selling, and what is a reasonable expectation a seller can have for how long it may take to get their house sold?
If we look at the market by price point, Kirk suggests, up to about $350,000, in New Hanover county, assuming a house is in a decent location and in decent condition without too much deferred maintenance, there is a three month supply of inventory. On the spectrum of buyers-market, sellers-market, a h ...
