127 Heathland Mooresville The Point Lake and Golf Club Priced to Sell!

This corporate relo home now priced at $799,000 sits on a great location on the par 3 13th hole of The Point Lake and Golf Club. This home built in 2002 by Kingswood and Assoc. was first sold in 2002 for $899,000. This home has a beautiful waterview and really feels like a waterfront home when your'e in it as the only thing separating you from Lake Norman is a narrow patch of a par 3. The views are much better than alot of waterfront homes. If you are a golfer it's in a really good location. You will also love the sunsets from this location and the views of Little Mountain. The pictures posted for this home do not do it justice. If   want a buyers agent to represent you let me know, I am familiar with it, know it's history, so let me help negotiate a good deal for you. It's listed by  Coldwell Bankers United listing #945576

Today's Brawley School Road Traffic

Notice the extra traffic on brawley? It was due to the first full day of kindergarten at Woodland Heights for all the classes. I expect traffic to be similar to today for a couple more weeks when more mom's start using the bus. Traffic is usually a little lighter on Friday's and a little heavier on Monday's. In a few weeks some of the part time summer residents move back to their full time residence whichs helps the traffic also. Bookmark and Share

145 Pine Mist Mooresville

Now here’s a home that you can move right into! Absolutely nothing to do to the inside of this home – it is beautifully decorated and has a great floor plan. The masters suite is out of a magazine; soothing colors and attention to detail……….The kitchen is gorgeous not only does it have a keeping room within the area but also a large breakfast area to accommodate a large family. The best part about this home is the location – it will take you less than 5 minutes to get to Woodland Heights and it's priced to sell at $389,000 between $108-$129 per sq foot!! listed by me and Keller Williams MLS# 924901

397 Bayberry Creek in The Farms available

Here’s a rare find in the Farms that I just listed– this home is in pristine condition the homeowners have taken such great care of this home that you wouldn’t believe it’s been lived in. incredible triple crown molding on the main floor – custom woodwork from Strom Construction (and it’s great that the builder is still in business and actively building in the Farms)beautiful maple cabinets in the kitchen with a great breakfast area that connects to the screened in porch with seasonal water views. What I really like about this house is the secluded bonus room over the 3 car garage; it has a convenient entertainment bar for those late night movies! This is listed through Keller Williams by me.

National New Home Sales just released

New Home sales contracts signed for July dropped 12.4% to a seasonally annual adjusted rate of 276k close to the lowest annual rate on record which was May 2010. Average price was 196k vs 214k in July 2009 and now back to levels of 2004. Inventories of new homes moved up to 9.1 months supply. In the South housing starts are running at levels not seen since the late 70's and in some month's in early 80's. With household formation continuing to grow eventually supply will meet demand, just as builders overbuilt in the 2000's, they are now underbuilding, it will take time to catch demand, but it is a simple supply side economics issue.

Traffic on Brawley

Welcome, the school year has begun so plan accordingly. Soon enough the road will be done and we'll have nothing to complain about. If you think we have it bad, how about this 60 mile long traffic jam in China that is now 10 days old and expected to last for weeks, cars are moving 1 mile per day, read the WSJ article here.

Mt. Mourne IB School

Just a passing thought........talking with my oldest and how he's excited to get back to school (8th grade) at the IB school and we are reminded that this school is 1of 5 schools in the entire state of NC in which 100% of the students tested at or above grade levels last year. How's that for great schools in NC. Bookmark and Share

Brawley School Road traffic

Today is the last day to enjoy your commute on Brawley School Rd. if you need to leave between 6:45am -8:00am. I expect traffic will be awful starting tomorrow for the first day of school. It tends to ease up a little bit in about 3 weeks but still if you are in The Point or beyond get on the road by 6:45am.

I recall when we moved to The Point in 2004 Woodland Heights Elementary was not built yet so my oldest attended 1st and 2nd Grades at Lake Norman Elementary and the commute to school and back home was an hour! So, not much changed in 6 years. Can't wait for the road to be done! Bookmark and Share

The market remains a buyers market and sellers need to be realistic about their pricing and make sure your home really stands out from the competition.
