I’m locking myself in my bathroom until the Wash and Brush Up Co from the Wizard of Oz shows up. I’ve been busy, two new listings since I was last on here (I know, the shame–but there’s everywhere else on the ‘net), a new buyer or three and an additional listing hopefully hitting before the end of the week so I will keep ya posted on that (just off of Western, 4/2 one car garage, wood burning fireplace in the den, four sided brick) and I head out of town soon for the Century 21 of the Carolinas Sales Rally.
So, what’s a Rally? It’s a great chance once/twice a year to meet up with industry peers, swap war stories (naturally) and also pointers of what is working both new and old school in their communities as well as check some boxes on some amazing classes for our state/national mandated electives for the year as well as extra classes to learn new tricks or how to do old ones better. I’m super excited about the chance to break away from the office for a bit even if it’s for a work conference trip. Market absorption rates, marketing standards and guidelines, how to make a short sale/foreclosure sale move more smoothly (pro tip, a “short sale” is nothing close to that, often taking months to wrap up and anything to make the foreclosure mess more clean…I’m in), etc.
The best way to try on a home and neighborhood for size is to actually drive out there and see it. . .I already announced that 2491 Northwoods will be open this Sunday. . .but I am lining up a few more open houses for planning purposes. . .of course, if the homes go under contract before then, I won’t be hosting one there.
1. 2491 Northwoods Drive, Jacksonville, NC 28540 Sunday the 2nd from 1-4
2. 106 Levi Lane (completed new construction) which is adjacent to Susie Court which has just broken ground on foundations. . .find a beautiful completed home ready to move into or browse through floor plans and timelines for new homes just breaking ground. Email me for directions if needed, but located off of Bannermanmill Road, then Core, then Right on Levi. Sunday the 9th from 1-4
3. 627 Riva Ridge Lane, Sneads Ferry, NC 28460 in Escoba Bay. I suggest you use google maps or mapquest to get driving directions, also, the bridge on 210 has been under repair, you may need to take an alternate route, email me for precise directions. Sunday the 16th from 1-4
Coffee at all open houses, of course, and hand outs on the home in particular. . .if the home isn’t up to snuff for you, let me know what it is you are looking for and we can start your personal home search. There will be a loan officer at each open house as well to help answer questions on credit, pre-payments, interest rates, monthly payments, etc. You also get to meet me. . .but the real bonus is the free coffee (in to-go cups even!). 🙂 I hope you can make it to one of them!
