The market is moving UP UP UP!!!



For Jacksonville, NC and the surrounding area of Onslow County, the market is picking up quickly.  . .which generally does happen this time of year but stronger than ever.  It is amazing to see what happens in a town with tremendous job security and pretty steady growth.  Things are a little slower in the over 200,000 price range, not nearly as slow as the rest of the national average. . .but compared to simple family homes, especially those priced below 150,000 if priced right for their conditon and location, they sell easily within the first month of hitting the market.  We have seen a few repos starting for folks who got themselves in a pickle with TOO MUCH MORTGAGE. . .but again, not nearly the national trend you hear about on the news.  Next article, how buying a home in this area is often CHEAPER THAN RENTING–when you think that many sellers pay closing costs and earnest money deposits are often around $500. . .I’ll explain in the next intallment.
