HPW Luxury | 6 Desirable Features Found in HPW Luxury Homes

In and around the Triangle area, there are several beautiful luxury listings available for sale. What exactly differentiates these properties from the standard market? Is it the square footage, the features, or the technology? Some would say it is all of the above. Ultimately, luxury buyers are not looking at the price tag in their search for their next dream home but the amazing amenities that come with the property. Here are the top 6 must-have features in luxury homes!

1. Indoor / Outdoor living

Indoor/outdoor living seamlessly extends your home's great room or dining quarters. This trend tends to keep cohesion in design from the interior to the exterior of your home. Typically indoor/ outdoor living has always been a primal commodity when searching for a new home. With the new normal consisting of being at your humble abode more these days, the amenity has become a necessity. What makes an outdoor living space luxurious is the ability to provide comfort through all seasons while also allotting multiple entertainment options. High-end features include retracting screened porches, outdoor kitchens, cabanas, and sometimes a type of water feature. This CBHPW luxury listing checks off each box on the list! With its large covered porch and a wood fireplace, the immaculate outdoor kitchen has a top-of-the-line grill station, jacuzzi, and extensive acreage for sporting events or games. One thing for sure is that you may yearn to host any occasion with this property as your next home. To view more of this listing, click here.  

2. Theatre Room 

Entertainment becomes the next level when a luxury property contains an in-home theater. The ability to bring the ultimate cinematic experience to your fingertips is a sought amenity many buyers search for when hunting for their next home. What makes an in-home theater top-notch is its ability to incorporate features similar to an actual movie theater. This includes a top-of-the-line av-system, projector, large screens, recessed lighting, and comfortable loungers. The goal of the theater room is to immerse yourself in what's on the screen, whether that be the newest megahit movie or the exciting rival sports game. The cinema room pictured above is from none other than one of our CBHPW luxury listings.

3. Large Garages

The standard two-car garage does not cut it for luxury properties. Buyers are looking for substantial space when envisioning the housing of their precious automobiles. Typically, luxury properties have at least a 3-car garage! To any car buff, the garage is not just a space for storing your vehicle. This part of the property could be turned into a luxurious showroom, man cave, or workshop. This beautiful CBHPW luxury property comes with a three-car garage with gorgeous rustic wood garage doors. To view more of this property, click here.  

4. Intricate Ceiling Designs

Raised ceilings and other intricate ceiling styles are quite the fanbase for luxury homes. A room turns from basic to compelling when there is a ceiling feature that adds depth, sophistication, and style. In most luxury dwellings, at least one space must contain a styled ceiling. One of these rooms can be the living room, sitting room, primary bedrooms, and or dining rooms. What exactly are some styles of these ceilings? They are cathedral, tray, beamed, suspended, and coffered. One would love to have any of these exquisite designs in their home!  For example, in this CBHPW luxury listing above. The sitting room contains a beautiful coffered ceiling. The coffered ceiling consists of sunken panels accented by molding, creating a waffle-like appearance. What works well in this room is the brilliant addition of recessed lighting. For more on this property click here

5. Massive Walk-In Closets

Typically an owner of a luxury home tends to live a complete life of luxury. Meaning everything about them is high-end, like their fashion sense. Closets in a luxury home are an extension of the main room and need to boast space and means of organization. Closets these days are not just for hanging clothes. They can be an area to lounge in after using the spa bathroom or a place to put on that fashion show after shopping in the streets of London. For sure, luxury home buyers are looking for closets that encompass organization and can show off their beautiful wardrobe. In this CBHPW luxury home, the primary closet is genuinely massive. This closet incorporates different levels of custom built-in shelving and an island dresser to accommodate all buyers' attire needs. To view more of this property, click here.

6. Relaxing Spa baths

Features include a jacuzzi bathtub fit for a king, a large walk-in shower that doubles as a steam room, neutral colors, beautiful stone or tile, and lots of space for minimal clutter. In this CBHPW luxury listing, this bathroom truly exuberates comfort and relaxation. The large window allows natural light to encase the room, making the white pop against the darker grays. The unity in neutral colors creates a calming sensation.

How An HPW Agent Can Help With Your Home Search

HPW Agents

Searching for a new home can be a nightmare if you go in unprepared. There are plenty of Raleigh homes for sale, but how do you find the one that's right for you? How do you know if the price is reasonable and that everything in the house is in good working order? You can't do it alone. You need a real estate agent.

More specifically, you need an HPW agent, to guide you through every step of the process and get you moved into the home of your dreams. Here are some of the ways an HPW agent can help you.

What Does a Real Estate Agent Do?

There are two types of real estate agents. A listing agent represents the person selling a home, whereas a buyer's agent represents the person buying it. Most real estate agents do both, but not for the same sale.

As a homebuyer, your HPW agent is a liaison between you and the homeowners. They'll guide you through all the necessary steps and paperwork, from the initial offer, through escrow, all the way to closing. But first, they have to find the home that's right for you.

It's a real estate agent's job to know all the homes in the neighborhood: what they're like, what they have to offer, how much they are, etc. Nowadays, people can look up house listings themselves online, look at photos, compare prices, etc. But it's still not the same as having an HPW agent in your corner.

Looking at photos online is no substitute for someone who's actually been to the house and can take you there personally for a guided tour. Whatever you're looking for, your HPW agent can find it for you.

Negotiations

Once you've found the home you want, it's your agent's job to get you the best deal. As members of the National Association of REALTORS®, they're obligated to put your interests ahead of their own. They know the home's worth, both on its own and as part of that particular neighborhood, and can tell whether or not it's priced fairly. If it's not, your agent will negotiate with the listing agent for a better price.

They'll also organize an official house inspection, to make sure everything works the way it's supposed to. Do the lights turn on when you flip the switch? Do the outlets have power running to them? Is there anything broken or worn out? Is everything up to code? Once they have the results of the inspection, they can use it to have the homeowners either fix anything that's wrong with the house or lower the asking price accordingly.

There's a lot to deal with when it comes to buying a home. Your HPW agent is there to shoulder the load, making the experience easier for you and ensuring you come out on top. Our real estate agents can help you with every step of the home buying process. Contact us to get settled into your dream home!

National Happy Cat Month: 5 Tips for a Pet-Friendly Home

Raleigh CatsYour pets are a part of the family. Our real estate agents are well aware of that and, since September is National Happy Cat Month, we want to share with you some of the many ways you can make your home more comfortable for them. Make your home the purr-fect place for your feline friends by following these tips. 

  1. Give Them Space
    If you provide a convenient space for your cat with fresh water and food close to the litter box, your cat is going to hate it. That may seem ungrateful, but there are actually good reasons for their reactions. First, their very sensitive noses can locate their litter box when it is quite far away. If it is too close to the food, the odor will overwhelm the scent of their dinner. They are also unhappy if the scent of their food overwhelms the scent of their water. They like to eat in quiet, out-of-the-way places. If this describes your kitchen, it may be a good kitty dining room, but if not, you may want to find a more appropriate location. 

  2. Don't Forget Playtime
    Your first reaction may be that the entire house is a cat playground, and to a degree, you would be correct. But remember that cats love to climb, jump and look down from on high. Fortunately, cat trees come in all shapes and sizes that can fit in any size home, from a small condo to a mansion. Often covered with carpet, it can blend into the decor and serve double duty as cat scratch poles. 

  3. Build a Cat Cave
    Cats love the safety and security of a confined space. Even big cats like lions and tigers will climb into any box they can and curl up in comfort. Some of the most popular cat toys are miniature houses and fabric retreats. They are also more than happy to curl up on your clean laundry, so why not give them a basket with a baby blanket? Whatever you choose, do keep in mind that cats can be like toddlers. No matter how much you spend on the toy, they may prefer to play in the box it came in!

  4. Give the Cat a View
    Indoor cats are prone to sitting for hours staring out of the window. Whether they are watching the birds in the trees or just relaxing in the sun, a special cat should have a special space, much as you might enjoy a reading nook in a bay window. You can make it special with a well-placed shelf or even just a chair. Be sure the cat has easy access to the window itself by opening the drapes or blinds sufficiently. 

  5. Keep the Litter Box Odor-Free
    Ammonia and cat feces carry foul odors that your cat hates even more than you do. Fortunately, modern technology has made the most despised chore facing cat owners a little easier to tackle. An expensive self-cleaning litter box is well worth the investment. Keep in mind that multi-cat homes require multiple litter boxes. 

If you think one of the exquisite Raleigh homes for sale might be a great new place for you and your cat, our real estate professionals would like to help you find it. Contact us today to get started.

5 Backyard Composting Tips

Composting Tips

Looking for an easy, affordable way to improve your garden and reduce your waste output? Create your own backyard compost pile!

Composting is the natural process of recycling garden, yard, and kitchen waste into fertile garden soil. When you add compost material to your soil, you improve its health, help it retain moisture, and provide protection against disease and pests. 

Our real estate agents know that a property with attractive landscaping appeals to prospective buyers. Here are some tips to follow for optimal backyard composting. 

  1. Select the Right Area for Your Compost Bin
    For the best results, your compost pile needs to be located in a suitable environment. Look for a spot that's dry and shady but has access to a water source. If your home is lacking in outside space, it's possible to set up a small compost bin inside your home. 
  1. Know What to Add to Your Compost Pile
    Every compost pile should have water, browns, and greens. These ingredients are all necessary to produce nutrient-rich compost. Browns include yard and garden waste, like twigs, dead leaves, and branches. Greens consist of grass clippings, fruit and vegetable waste, and old coffee grounds. Your compost pile needs an equal amount of browns and greens. Water keeps the compost pile moist so that it breaks down more rapidly. 
  1. Understand What NOT to Add to Your Compost Pile
    A few items should not be composted. These items may harm plants or produce an odor that attracts insects. When you put your home on the market, it's essential to confirm that your compost pile is odor-free so that it doesn't deter homebuyers. Never add plants with disease or pests to your compost pile, as both disease and pests can be transmitted to other plants when you add the compost to your garden. Avoid adding fats, meats, bones, and dairy products, as all these items will make your compost pile smell and attract rodents and insects. Any yard or garden waste that's been treated with chemical pesticides should stay out of your compost pile. Pesticides can kill the organisms necessary to break down organic material. 
  1. Cover Your Compost Pile
    It can take between a couple of months and a couple of years for organic materials to turn into compost. Hasten the process by covering your compost pile. Covering your compost helps it retain moisture that assists with the degradation of your food and yard waste. You can opt for a compost bin with a lid or use a tarp to cover your compost pile. 
  1. Be Picky with How You Layer Your Compost
    Always put a layer of browns as the top layer on your compost pile. This will minimize any odors associated with your compost, and it helps the materials retain moisture. A brown top layer also decreases the number of pests and insects attracted to your compost pile. When you add new waste to your compost pile, alternate brown and green layers, check that the brown layers are two to three times thicker than your green layers.

A compost pile is a great way to supply your garden with nutrients. Ready to add your home to the list of Raleigh homes for sale? Contact us today to get started!

What to Know When Building a Home This Year

Raleigh Construction

Finding a new home that meets your needs can be a difficult task. There are plenty of Raleigh homes for sale, but what if you want to build your own? It affords you more control and ensures that the finished product will meet all your standards. What does it take to build a home, though? What does it cost, and what can you expect throughout the process? Here's what you need to know.

Cost

On average, building a new home costs a little under $300,000. Keep in mind this estimate doesn't factor in the cost of buying the land for the build. Buying a home, on the other hand, costs around $435,000. 

Of course, the cost also depends on how big of a house you plan on building. A good rule of thumb is to factor around $100-$200 per square foot. So building a 1,000 square foot house will cost between $100,000 and $200,000. Building a 3,000 square foot house will cost between $300,000 and $600,000.

Budgeting

Once you have an idea of the total cost of building a new home, it's important to break down exactly where that money is going to give you a more accurate idea of how much your home, specifically, will cost to build.

About 40% of your budget will go towards labor. This includes the construction crew, as well as an electrician, plumber, roofer, framer, and other jobs. Shop around and see how much each of these services costs in your area.

About 50% of your budget goes towards materials. This includes everything such as lumber, concrete, drywall, siding, and more. What your house is made of will greatly influence the cost.

Finally, you need to decide if, in addition to the house itself, you want any extras. A swimming pool, for example, can cost anywhere from an additional $36,000 to $66,000. You may also want an outdoor deck, an unfinished basement, or heated floors. Each of these things will add to the total cost of construction.

Scheduling

Your new home will probably take longer to complete than the initial estimates. Most contractors will give you the most optimistic estimate they can, but plenty of things can cause delays, from bad weather to zoning and permit issues, and almost anything else.

When your contractor gives you a timeline, think of it as a guide rather than a strict schedule, and plan on at least a few extra months before you can move in. If you're in a hurry to get into a new place, you're probably better off buying rather than building.

Sweat Equity

Sometimes it's possible to save both time and money by doing some of the work on the house yourself. Major projects like plumbing and electricity should always be left to the experts, but smaller tasks like painting or laying the tile in the bathroom, you can do on your own if you're up to it. This is called sweat equity: putting your own labor into a building or improving your house to save money and increase its value.

These are just a few of the considerations when building a new home. Our real estate agents can help you find the perfect property on which to build it. In fact, we have a whole team dedicated to helping those looking to build a home in the area! Or, if you'd rather, we can help you find an existing home that will meet your needs.

Neighbors Selling Their Home? Pay Attention to These Things!

Raleigh Neighbor

If you're considering putting your home on the market, you'll want to take advantage of the information other sellers in the neighborhood will provide you. Our real estate agents would suggest that you take note of these critical details you can learn from other Raleigh homes for sale.

  • Unbiased reviews
    You won't want to miss the gold mine of feedback from potential buyers at your neighbor's open house. People will discuss everything from the condition of the home to the surrounding community. Let their conversations guide you with respect to upgrades or repairs to your house. Seeing the area through the eyes of strangers opens you up to different perspectives. This can influence your decisions about such things as paint color and appliance preference while you're still in the process of upgrading. 
  • Market study
    Take a look at the length of time your neighbor's house stays on the market. Was it a quick sale, or did it languish for a while? If it remained on the market for longer than a few weeks, you might want to delay selling yours until the market shifts. Setting a price can be very challenging. You can ease that process by comparing the original asking price to the final sale. Did the seller have to reduce the price in order to sell? Was there a bidding war driving the price above the asking price? It's also helpful to note the demographics of the potential buyers. If most interested parties, as well as the ultimate buyer, were from a particular age range, for example, you may want to focus your own marketing efforts toward that group. 
  • Connect with the seller's agent
    Selling a home is serious business and you don't want to trust the process to just anyone. Who better than an agent that has already studied the neighborhood and comes with a good reference? Chatting with the agent at an open house can give you insight that you can't find in an ad. It might tell you about the number of years the agent has been licensed, but you want to know how well they attract interested buyers, their knowledge of the selling process and how well they handle negotiations. Before you put your own home on the market, attending multiple open houses provides you with the opportunity to see a few agents in action. 
  • Collaboration with your neighbor
    There is no need to compete with your neighbor if you are both selling. You can both obtain a better price with less effort if you work together to show the entire neighborhood in a positive light. By using the same agent, both homes can be shown at the same time, allowing potential buyers to compare properties. If one house sells, another shopper may make an immediate offer on the second. By consulting with the agent and each other, you can both set an asking price without worrying about undercutting each other. 

Contact us to arrange private tours or attend open houses near you. We feel confident that our real estate professionals can help you get a good price for the home you're in while finding you a new place to live.

Kitchen Updates You'll Enjoy Using

Kitchen Updates

Once you've found your perfect home, the next step is to make it your own - starting with the kitchen. If cooking is your passion, you can up your culinary game with a few simple design ideas. There are plenty of Raleigh homes for sale with amazing kitchens to suit your needs. Here's how to take those kitchens even further.

Appliances

The right tools can help in a myriad of ways. An induction cooktop, for instance, regulates heat much more accurately than a regular stovetop, allowing for more precise temperature measurements. The appliance itself never gets hot, reducing the risk of accidental burning. Plus, it's more energy-efficient than electric or gas stoves.

You might also consider a high-speed oven. Using both convection and microwave heating, it heats better and more accurately, cutting cook times in half.

Finally, if you don't have a stand mixer, it will change your life. A good quality mixer will last for many years, providing thorough, even mixing. You can do everything from whip cream to beat meringue to knead bread dough quickly and easily without wearing out your arms. Plus, with extra attachments, you can roll out and cut your own fresh pasta, grind your own meat, and much more.

Organization

A few simple organizational improvements can help you tremendously. Install some sturdy hooks above the stovetop, on which to hang your pots and pans. This will make them easier to find and access when you need them. You can do the same for mixing spoons, spatulae, and other basic tools. For knives, consider installing a long, magnetic strip that the knives can stick to. That way, you can simply remove one when you need it and put it back in its place when it's clean.

In your cluttered cabinets, try putting in a Lazy Susan. They design them for all different purposes, from organizing herbs and spices to storing empty containers. Whatever you're using it for, a Lazy Susan lets you keep everything organized and view it at a glance, so you don't have to rummage through a lot of extra clutter to find what you need.

Also, consider installing tension rods in your cabinets. They make great customizable barriers that you can prop things like pans and cookie sheets against, rather than stacking them up. By storing things vertically, you can create more space in your cabinets and keep things more organized.

Renovation

If you're really committed to updating your kitchen, consider some renovations and remodels. Start with more shelves. A single shelf that stretches across an entire kitchen wall can provide a tremendous amount of storage for various things without taking up much extra space.

If your home doesn't have a kitchen island, you should put one in. It provides extra space for everything you need: a counter for prep work, a table for seating, plus storage beneath for pots and pans, appliances, etc.

To make cleanup simpler, cut a small hole in the kitchen island countertop, and store a trash can in the cabinet underneath. Now you have a quick and easy way to eliminate everything from eggshells to empty packaging as you cook.

These are just a few of the kitchen updates you can make in your home to make cooking easier and better. Get creative and see what other improvements you can make to help you when you cook.

If you want to find your perfect home with your dream kitchen, contact us. Our real estate agents can help you find the right space for you and ensure every room will meet your needs.

5 Things to Consider Before Buying Patio Furniture

Raleigh Patio

What's so hard about buying patio furniture? Why not just go online or to a store and pick something pretty and buy it? You can do that, but you may not be happy with how that plays out in the patio area of the dream home you chose among homes for sale in the Triangle. A little planning will help you make the most of your outdoor living space. If you're not sure what questions to ask about a patio furniture purchase, follow the guidelines our real estate agents have put together. 

  1. Determine the Space
    This sounds so obvious, but you'll be surprised to learn that some folks just close their eyes, make a purchase, and hope it fits. Don't do that. Measure your space. Decide what you want. Bar stools? A dining table and chairs? Chairs for relaxing and lounging? You may get a good deal ordering online, but when buying furniture, it's always nice to look at it in person. Buying patio furniture in the brick-and-mortar store can show you how big it is, so you can calculate if it will nicely fill the space you have.

  2. How Comfortable is it?
    There's not much point in buying patio furniture just to look at. You'll want people to sit in it and enjoy it. It's important to sit on the furniture to see if it's comfortable. Do you intend to improve the experience by providing comfy cushions? That's helpful, but you also want to see if the chairs, table, or whatever, are the right dimensions.

  3. Are the Materials Weather Resistant?
    These days patio furniture is manufactured from many different materials: wicker, iron, resin, steel, plastic, wood, and others. If you're going to leave your furniture in an uncovered location during the warm season, you may want to choose something weather-resistant and resilient. Leaving the furniture in the heat and humidity will shorten its usefulness. If you're going to keep your furniture in a protected location, you might have better luck with patio furniture made of wood or wicker. Regardless of where you leave it, you may need to do a bit of maintenance every season: painting, replacing cushions, or with wood, even refinishing. 

    It's always a good idea to put the furniture up when the season for entertaining is over; at the very least, cover it up and protect it from the elements. Also, think about where you're going to place the furniture: on solid ground or on the patio. If it's going to make contact with the earth. you need to choose materials that can handle being on soggy ground, such as plastic or resin. 

  4. Invest in Quality
    Be aware that plastic, resin, wood, or wicker furniture may look good when you buy it, but if it's used extensively outdoors, UV rays and weather will make it fade so that it loses its looks. If you can afford it, invest in good quality furniture that will stand up to the elements and last a few years. If possible, set it in a protected location.

  5. Shop Colors
    You can have some fun when shopping for the right color of patio furniture. It doesn't have to be neutral, black, or brown. Match colors in your landscape or with your house, or go a little wild selecting pillows and cushions that pop.

Paint Color Psychology: What Colors You Should Use Before Listing Your Home?

Paint Color Tips

Have you ever noticed how some rooms entice you into settling back and relaxing, and others make you feel energetic and ready for fun? Understanding the effects of your choice of colors will help you send the correct message to potential buyers. Our real estate agents can tell you that painting your home will probably bring the greatest return on investment of any upgrades you make when selling your home. Keep in mind the psychological effects of these colors before starting to paint. 

  1. Classic white
    Not only does white evoke calming effects, but it also opens up the space, making it appear larger. We often equate white with cleanliness. These are the primary reasons that white has been the most common choice of sellers for decades. Potential buyers also see white as the easiest color to paint over later.

  2. Black
    Often regarded as sophisticated and elegant, too much black can be somber and depressing. It's best used as an accent to bring drama to a classic white interior without interfering with the expansive visual effects. Consider black rugs or small accessories to add interest to what might otherwise be a boring environment.

  3. Gray
    Eliciting the same feelings of calm serenity white brings to the table, it adds versatility, matching any color scheme. gray lends a comforting feeling of warmth to a cool room. This adaptability has made gray the new "go-to" color of many interior decorators, edging white off the pedestal as number one. 

  4. Blue
    From the sky above to the deep blue sea, this color brings a cool calm, making it a good choice for bedrooms and bathrooms. Psychologists tell us it actually lowers blood pressure, and who doesn't need that after a busy day? Available in so many shades, blue can accent a home's architectural style, such as slate blue for a Craftsman or light shades for a beach house. 

  5. Green
    Another cool color, green, also reduces stress and provides a restful environment appropriate for bedrooms, kitchens, and living rooms. Like blue, green is soothing and harmonious, reminiscent of the beauties of nature. Think of how a lush lawn calls to us to take off our shoes and walk across it with bare feet. 

  6. Red
    Of all the warmer colors, red is the most intense, creating energy and stimulating emotions. That can be either good or bad, depending upon where it is used. Increasing energy is great for a recreation room but can be uncomfortable when you are trying to relax in the living room. When painting, consider where you want a stimulating space.

  7. Orange 
    Like red, orange increases tension and excitement, great when you're watching a football game, but not conducive to settling back with a good book. Used carefully, it can encourage enthusiasm, but too much of it can create a feeling of chaos. Used carefully, it can make a dining area feel lively and fun but might be more appropriate to a breakfast bar than a formal dining room.

The most important thing to remember when you are preparing your house for sale is that you want to make it attractive to buyers, not make it a personal statement. You may find it better to stick with neutral colors of paint and, if you are showing it with furniture, add colors with pillows, bedspreads, and other accessories that can be easily removed. 

Looking at other Raleigh homes for sale will help you see how a fresh coat of paint can make a difference! Contact us for assistance listing your house.

5 Benefits of Living Near Parks and Walking Trails

Raleigh Walking Trails

Living in the Triangle means that you have constant access to a network of connected trails and outstanding, multi-use parks that offer outdoor fun for residents of all ages. These outdoor hubs of activity bring many benefits to the communities where they're located, including some perks that you might not expect. Our real estate agents have the details on 5 key benefits of living near parks and walking trails.

  1. The Health Benefits of Living Near Trails

    When it comes to health benefits, trails and parks provide both a great place to exercise and added motivation to enjoy a workout. The ease of access when living near outdoor recreation areas makes it easy to work on fitness on your own schedule and having so many great outdoor spaces to explore provides motivation to go exploring. A brisk walk on a trail can help you stay in great shape physically, and spending quiet time in nature has many mental health benefits, too. Local parks provide even more motivation for physical activity, whether you join a sports league, enjoy a stroll in the park, or play with the kids/grandchildren on the playground.

  2. Recreation for Family Members of All Ages and Pets Too

    It's not always easy to find recreation activities that family members of all ages can enjoy together at the same time, so trails are also an asset for family fun and fitness. The Durant Trails neighborhood, located near Raleigh homes for sale, is one great example of how trails can help families stay active and enjoy the outdoors. The neighborhood is filled with connected trails, which you can follow directly to various outdoor attractions. Trails are also great for keeping your pets physically active close to home, and many trails in Raleigh are open to dogs as long as they're kept on a leash.

  3. Trails Connect Neighborhoods, Communities, and Parks

    Why jump in the car for a quick drive to a nearby destination when you can follow a local trail to reach your favorite outdoor attractions? Trails bring neighborhoods together by connecting local parks, nature preserves, and even popular shopping areas. The paved, easy-to-walk Abbots Creek Trail in North Raleigh, for example, travels through the Falls River and Bedford neighborhoods, connecting with a variety of local attractions along the way.

  4. Turning Abandoned Railroad Corridors Into Community Assets

    If you've ever searched for local trails online, then you may already be familiar with the concept of rail trials. These are trail systems that turn abandoned railroad corridors into hubs of outdoor community activity and often feature longer trails than you would find in other locations. The American Tobacco Trail is one of the most popular trail systems near Durham homes for sale, with more than 22 miles of connected trails built on old railroad corridors.

  5. Increasing the Appeal of Neighborhoods for Real Estate Buyers and Sellers

    While there is some debate over how much local trails and parks increase home values directly, there's no doubt that they add more appeal to neighborhoods for people who are shopping for homes. If you're buying a home, choosing one near local trails and parks might be a major attraction. 

Shopping for your next home near the connected trails and beautiful parks of the Triangle? The right real estate team makes all the difference. Contact us to buy and sell homes throughout the Raleigh, NC area.

Movie Night: Try These Home Theater Improvements

Raleigh Home Theater

Whether you enjoy binge-watching your favorite shows or like to host at-home movie nights, a home theater system is an excellent addition to your home. Our real estate agents find that a home theater system is also appealing to potential homebuyers and helps define your home's unused spaces. Here are a few ways you can take your home theater to the next level.

  1. Select the Right Space
    When deciding where to place your home theater, opt for a room that's removed from the hustle and bustle of your household. This should be a space that's used only for viewing media. Ideally, you should be able to close the room off from the rest of the household when it's time to catch a movie to minimize noise and light pollution. 
  1. Place Your TV or Screen the Correct Distance from Your Seating
    For the best viewing experience, your TV or screen should be the proper distance from your home theater's seating. If your space has a TV, multiply the length of the screen's diagonal size by 1.5 to 2.5 to know where to place the seats. For example, assume you have a 60-inch TV. This means that you'll place your seats anywhere from 90 inches to 150 inches from the screen. However, if you have a projector in your home theater, multiply the width of the screen by 2 to 5 to figure out your seat placement. This makes it comfortable for you to see the whole screen. 
  1. Paint Your Walls a Dark Hue
    Your home theater is the perfect place to embrace a dark color for your walls. Lighter colors can reflect light in the room and cause a glare. Dark hues will absorb light and help you better control the lighting conditions in the room. Raleigh homes for sale with a fresh coat of paint will also show better with prospective buyers. 
  1. Invest in a Home Audio System
    Even top-notch TVs frequently have less than stellar sound quality. Add to your viewing experience by investing in a home audio system. This will ensure that the sound tones are crisp and clear. For a smaller space, a soundbar may be sufficient. You don't want to overwhelm the room with too much sound. If you have a larger home theater room, a surround sound system is an excellent choice for an immersive viewing experience.
  1. Keep Decorative Items Away from Your Screen
    Movie posters and souvenirs are cool, but they can distract you or your guests when you're watching a movie. Instead, position them so that they're behind your seating. 
  1. Opt for Tiered Seating
    Tiered seating is the gold standard for home theaters because it prevents someone from inadvertently obscuring the view of the person behind them. Fortunately, tiered seating doesn't have to be expensive. You can add platforms to your seats to raise them a few inches. Or, you might opt to add a few cozy floor seats; these are often popular with kids who like a little extra space to fidget during a movie.

North Carolina: One of the Top States for Inbound Moves

North Carolina Inbound Moves

In the last five years, while many states are seeing a decline in growth, North Carolina surges forward. In fact, it was recently reported that North Carolina was one of the top states for inbound moves in 2020. If you're curious about why families are flocking to our state, our real estate agents will be happy to answer some of your questions. 

  1. What is North Carolina like? 
    From the majestic Appalachian Mountains to the Atlantic, the terrain sweeps from the 6,684 feet of Mount Mitchell in the Blue Ridge to over 300 miles of pristine beaches. The famous Outer Banks are a string of barrier islands that lie to the east. Outdoor lovers will thrill to skiing in winter, surfing, and sailing in summer. Lakes and rivers offer swimming and fishing. Spectacular views await whichever direction you turn. With four distinct seasons, North Carolina enjoys mild temperatures, with average highs at around 70 degrees and lows from 56-67 degrees.  

  2. What is there to see and do? 
    With a rich history going back to Colonial America, museums and historical sites abound. The North Carolina Museum of Art houses a broad range of art worldwide, including the largest collection of Rodin sculptures in the southeastern United States. In the music scene, you can find a concert somewhere in the city nearly every day. Home of the world's largest beer garden, Raleigh offers a rich nightlife flowing with locally crafted beers to accompany world-class food. 

  3. How much does it cost to live in North Carolina? 
    Homebuyers always look at a house as an investment, probably the largest they will ever make. In North Carolina, the median listing price is $184,100, or about $115 per square foot. Raleigh homes for sale are somewhat higher, but at $315,000 median listing price is still below the national average of $346,800. The continuing high growth in population has given rise to a home appreciation of 8.5% over the last ten years. A number of factors, such as a reasonable flat tax, make the cost of living significantly lower than the rest of the country. The property tax rate is only 0.84%. 

  4. Education Opportunities? 
    Many move to North Caroline to the Research Triangle because of the educational opportunities in a variety of fields and professions. At the college level, Duke, Wake Forest, Davidson, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill top the list of the best colleges in North Carolina out of seventy-nine to choose from.

  5. How is the job market? 
    Although the unemployment rate remains high across the nation, North Carolina anticipates a decline to about 5.1% by December of 2021, with a net job increase of 245,100. With 12 of the states 14 nonagricultural sectors seeing an increase in employment, hospitality, and leisure services will lead the way. Household income averages $61,505, as compared to the national average of $57,652. North Carolina's economy focuses on banking, technology, and pharmaceuticals.  

When you consider the beautiful landscape, fantastic weather, and abundance of leisure activities, you may wish to change your question. Instead of asking why people are moving to North Carolina, you might ask why anyone is not. If you're ready to make a move, contact us to find that perfect house.

St. Patrick's Day Crafts Your Kids Will Love

Raleigh Crafts

Our real estate agents love spreading the Luck O' the Irish! This year, consider taking a short break from exploring the beautiful Raleigh homes for sale so you and your little ones can enjoy a fun St. Paddy's Day-themed craft party! Here are a few easy ideas to help you plan your day. 

  1. Leprechaun Paper Plate
    It's easy to make an adorable leprechaun using a paper plate, a little bit of paint, and some construction paper. Begin by turning a plain white paper plate upside down and painting the outside edge with orange paint. While you're waiting for the paint to dry, use green, yellow, and black construction paper to make a hat and glue it to the top of the plate. Draw a face with a black Sharpie marker, and you've got an adorable leprechaun to help you celebrate St. Patrick's Day! 
  1. 3-D Shamrock
    Want to make a shamrock that pops? Try this fun 3-D paper shamrock. Start by cutting green construction paper into six hearts that are the same size and a piece in the shape of a shamrock stem. Fold each heart in half vertically, making a strong crease. Glue the stem at the bottom of the page and the bottom four hearts over the stem, directly across from each other. Now use the last two hearts to make the top of the shamrock, and you're done! This is a great way to make a 3-D card that your child can give to a loved one.
  1. Leprechaun Handprint Craft
    Handprint crafts create a memorable keepsake you can treasure for years. To make this fun handprint leprechaun, start by painting your child's fingers orange and the palm a skin color. Then, have them press their hand hard on a piece of white paper. For this craft, the fingers will point down, as they will make the beard. Use paint, markers, or construction paper to make a tophat and add some orange paint underneath to look like hair. Finally, add some googly eyes and draw a nose and mouth -- and you've got a happy leprechaun to celebrate the day with you. 
  1. Rainbow Chain Necklace
    Kids love crafts they can wear, so this rainbow chain necklace is always a big hit! It's easy to make and will keep them busy for a while. All you need is colored construction paper, tape or a stapler, and some gold glitter. Start by cutting red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple paper into small strips. Then, show your child how to make each piece into a circle, interlocking them together. Hold each piece together with a staple or a dot of glue. Finally, make a pot of gold with construction paper and your gold glitter. Staple or glue it to the front of the wreath, and it's ready to go. 
  1. Fabric Wreath
    If you have an older child or you're willing to help, this DIY fabric wreath is another fun project. Start with a 12-inch wire wreath frame and 1 yard each of lime green, polka dot, and shamrock-patterned fabric. Cut the fabric into 1.5 x 7-inch strips. Then tie each piece of fabric to the frame, one at a time, creating a pattern. Start from the outside edge and work your way in. When you're done, hang it on your door with a piece of green ribbon. 

You don't need luck to find a great home in the Raleigh area. The home of your dreams is out there waiting for you, so don't delay! Contact us today to get started.

How You Can Start Planning Ahead for Summer Landscaping Projects

Summer Landscaping Raleigh

When potential buyers arrive to tour a prospective home, the outside creates an impression within minutes. Our real estate agents know that picturesque landscaping can even raise the total value of your home. Don't wait until summer to get started on your landscaping projects. Instead, check out a few things you can do now to start the planning process.

  1. Decide What Furniture, Garden Decor, and Deck Items You Want
    Take a moment to envision your ideal outdoor spaces. What do they consist of? What items do you have, and what pieces are you lacking? Make a list of the items you'll need to complete your projects. Then, browse your preferred retailers to find pieces you like, noting the price and anticipated delivery times. This will ensure that you find options that suit your budget, and you can cater your ordering date according to the item's availability.
  1. Start Your Seedling Indoors
    If your landscaping plans involve adding new plants and flowers or growing your own vegetable garden, consider starting your own seedlings inside and transplanting them during the spring or summer months. Not only do you have control over the growing conditions, but it's typically cheaper to grow your own seedlings rather than purchasing them. You also have a wide variety of plant species to choose from, allowing you to find the best option for your landscaping, climate, and vision for your home's exterior. 
  1. Make a Plan for Spatial Limitations
    Even Raleigh homes for sale with limited outdoor space can have gorgeous outside spaces. Now is the ideal time to come up with a plan for maximizing the space that you have. Maybe you've always dreamed of a lush garden, but you're out of yard space. One solution is to add a vertical garden that takes up a small amount of your yard's square footage. Or, you might add window planter boxes. Perhaps you envision a roomy outdoor space where you can cook, eat, and relax with your family. If your current deck is too small, you might plan an expansion or decide to split your outside spaces into your front and back yards. 
  1. Research Smart Technology for Your Gardens
    If you worry that you'll forget to water your garden or just prefer to automate the process, now's the time to research and set up smart technology to make the task as simple as possible. You can invest in a smart irrigation system that adjusts its water output based on the weather and current soil conditions. Your plans might involve expanding your outdoor entertaining space. Add smart speakers and lighting so that you can quickly set the tone for your evening. 
  1. Craft a Plan of Attack for Pests
    Pests, like mosquitos, flies, and rabbits, keep you from getting optimal enjoyment from your home's outdoor areas. Decide how you want to tackle these pests. You may prefer to add vegetation that will deter the pesky creatures. For example, citronella, catnip, and marigold plants repel mosquitos. Thorny bushes help keep deer away. You can also check that you've removed any items in your yard (like standing water or decaying vegetation) that pests find attractive. Or, it may be better to enact a physical better to keep animals and neighboring pets out of your yard and garden.

Small Design Details That Make a Difference

Raleigh Design Details

When you think about changing up your home decor, you may assume that only big projects can have an equally big impact. But small design details can have a much greater effect on your home's appearance than you think.

Our real estate agents love the following small design changes that can make a big difference in your home's appearance:

  1. Upgrade your doors    
    You may not immediately think of your doors when it comes time to get creative with your home decor. But new doors can add a unique sense of style and a new architectural dimension to your home. For a simple change, paint your doors in a new color. For a greater impact, replace existing doors with something special, like one made from reclaimed wood or a reused barn door.
      
  2. Give your fireplace a boost
    If you have a fireplace that looks blah, paint its mantel in a contrasting color. You can also frame your fireplace materials like bricks. And even if you don't already have a fireplace, talk to a contractor about your options for installing one.
      
  3. Add some statement pieces
    Statement pieces can have a big impact on any room. Try looking in antique stores for items like artwork or a centerpiece bowl. This way, you'll find unique treasures that add a big dose of personality and visual interest to your home.
      
  4. Change up your lighting
    Having different types of lighting helps you create different moods, so try options like string lights, a table lamp, and a floor lamp. Turn on the string lights when you're hosting friends, use the floor lamp for everyday activities, and switch on the table lamp if you're cozying up with a book. You can also give your lamps a boost of style by adding bulbs in different shapes or designs.
      
  5. Create a gallery wall
    Strategically place photos and art on a wall to make a big visual impact in any room. You can also add a picture rail for a more permanent option that adds a polished detail all on its own. As a bonus, a picture rail also lets you avoid putting holes in your walls.
      
  6. Add texture to your walls
    Color isn't the only way to change up your walls. You can also hire a painter to use techniques that create texture on a plain wall. Or, if you'd rather, add an accent panel of stonework or mosaic tiles.
      
  7. Replace your hardware
    For a quick change, pick out new hardware on your cabinets and drawers. You'll have a large variety of options, ranging from sleek, modern-looking silver handles to intricate bronze knobs.
      
  8. Paint a focal wall
    Choose a focal wall and paint it in a color that sounds out from what's used on the other walls. For example, paint a focal wall in a striking navy blue to stand out among white walls in the room. The key is to choose a color that sharply contrasts with what's used on the other walls while making sure that the colors complement one another.
      
  9. Don't forget the simple things
    If you're stuck figuring out what changes to make, keep things simple. Add some striking throw pillows, blankets, candles, or photo frames to your decor. It's easy to change or add these items as you find new ones you love, and they can help spark further creativity.

Real Estate Trends to Know in the New Year

Raleigh Real Estate 2021

Predicting the real estate market is tricky. Case in point: 2020 did not look the way our real estate agents expected it to, but the pandemic brought about a surprising real estate boom. The big question everyone seems to be asking is, will 2021 follow suit? 

Of course, if you plan to list your Raleigh home for sale soon, you probably have a more pressing question: will 2021 be a good time to sell?

Where We Are Today

It's impossible to overstate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the housing market and how widely this impact continues to be felt. In a market that already had a high demand for housing and a lack of inventory, this year has seen that trend skyrocket as many sellers de-listed their homes amid pandemic fears. 

At this point, many of those homes are appearing on the market again, leveling things out somewhat. In fact, home sales increased sharply during the autumn months (up 9.4% in September alone, according to CNBC), and the median purchase price has risen by nearly 15% year-over-year. 

We head toward the end of 2020, still in a strong seller's market. And even as the inventory of available homes creeps upward somewhat, home prices continue to rise, and demand appears to be as strong as ever. 

Looking to the Future

Keeping in mind what we've seen over the past year, we expect the year ahead will continue to offer great opportunities for sellers. Although demand can't sustain forever at its current level, we expect it to level off slowly. Here's what else we predict for the 2021 housing market:

  • Home prices will continue to rise.
    It seems certain home prices will continue their trend upward in 2021, at least in most U.S. cities. That includes Raleigh, where the average home sale has increased 10.5% year-over-year according to Redfin, and most homes sell for up to 3% above listing price. 

  • Inventory will remain tight.
    Inventory is the "supply" side of supply and demand. It essentially refers to the total number of homes on the market at any given time. That number declined over the course of 2020, and although we expect to see it rebound slightly in the next year as many sellers re-list their homes, inventory will almost certainly remain tight in 2021, fueling high prices. 

  • Demand will remain high.
    Many people who wanted to buy a home in 2020 weren't able to do so because of the pandemic. Expect a lot of those individuals to resume their efforts in 2021, leading demand to remain high, at least for the time being. With strong demand, we expect home sales to increase, or at the very least remain steady. 

  • Mortgage rates will hover around 3%.
    We expect to see mortgage rates remain fairly consistent going into the next year. When you consider that we left October 2020 at a record low of just 2.8% for a 30-year fixed home loan, that puts buyers in a pretty healthy place. We may see very slight increases but expect mortgage rates to remain around 3%. 

Contact us today to learn more about buying or selling a home in 2021. We understand that we're living through uncertain times, and we're here to help every step of the way. Whether you're on the hunt for your dream home or are getting ready to sell, we think 2021 will offer an amazing opportunity.

HPW Open Houses | October 3 - 4

New month, new house! Or at least that's the goal, right?

Our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate agents have listed fantastic homes in cities and suburbs all over the Triangle region.

Take advantage of the weekend ahead to plan visits to our agents' area open houses. You're going to want to see the homes you've been eyeing online up close to get a better idea of what they hold.

Plan to set aside a chunk of time at each house so that you may tour it inside and out at your own pace (twice if you like) and then take a drive around the neighborhood and community. Knowledge is the name of the real estate game, and you're going to want to gather as much information as possible to decide if you will make an offer.

Also, don't forget the Triangle Parade of Homes is still underway granting you access to a fantastic collection of newly built area homes.

At HPW, we are committed to maintaining reliable service to our clients, while doing our part to limit the spread of the COVID-19. In order to protect both our clients and agents, we are asking everyone to please take precautionary measures when visiting our open houses.

Adopt a Shelter Dog Month: Animal Shelters in the Triangle

Animal Shelters in the Triangle

October is officially "Adopt a Shelter Dog Month", and with so many people spending more time at home this year, there couldn't be a better time to welcome a new furry friend into your family. There are several great dog shelters in and around the Triangle and dozens of new pets that need to be adopted today. Looking to add a shelter dog to your family? Our REALTORS® went ahead and pulled together a list of options:

  1. Saving Grace Animals For Adoption13400 Old Creedmoor Rd., Wake Forest, NC 27587
    A wide selection of breeds of all ages, Saving Grace has dozens of loving pups in need of a home. In addition to adoption services, they also offer a temporary foster program and a "host a dog weekend" service. There is an adoption fee, which covers vaccinations, spay/neuter, parasite prevention, and other services. While you're in the area, there are several great Wake Forest homes for sale with beautiful backyards for your new dog to run and play.
  2. Cause For Paws - 1634 S. Saunders St., Raleigh, NC 27603
    Cause for Paws has a number of cats and dogs available for adoption. While cats are housed at their two Raleigh thrift stores, dogs are actually kept at foster homes throughout the Triangle, so it's usually best to call ahead in order to schedule a visit with a particular dog. While you're in town, schedule an appointment to visit one of these Raleigh homes for sale.
  3. Second Chance Pet Adoptions - 6003 Chapel Hill Rd. #133, Raleigh, NC 27607
    Helping dogs find good homes in the Triangle area since 1987, Second Chance Pet Adoptions has a wide range of dogs that need homes today. They charge a $300 adoption fee that covers about $500 worth of veterinary care. Applications are available on their website along with information about their dogs available for adoption.
  4. Wake County Animal Center - 820 Beacon Lake Dr., Raleigh, NC 27610
    Owned and operated by the county, The Wake County Animal Center takes in thousands of strays and abandoned pets every year, and partners with fosters and volunteers to help find them a loving home. Dog adoption fees are only $95. While they don't provide spay/neuter services, they do make recommendations for reputable local veterinary clinics.
  5. Orange County Animal Services - 1601 Eubanks Rd., Chapel Hill, NC 27516
    Not only does Orange County Animal Services provide intake services for abandoned animals, but they also offer spay/neuter programs and manage pet licensing for the county. Additionally, they take on the responsibility of enforcing animal cruelty laws across the county. The adoption fee for a dog is $125 and the fee for a puppy is $175, and the fees include a wide range of veterinary services including health screening, vaccinations, and microchipping. After you pick-up, your new pup, be sure to cruise by these Chapel Hill homes for sale.

Getting a new pet is a big decision! In return for opening up your home to them, dogs will provide you with long term companionship, fun, and they may even help you to reduce stress. For more recommendations on local pet shelters in the Triangle, contact us today.

Have you decided to call the Triangle home? You've made a good choice. Now, let's find you a house.

With well-lauded local cities and towns, there are plenty of communities and neighborhoods to consider as you narrow down your list of wants and needs.

Urban Living

Raleigh and Durham offer burgeoning downtowns with developing cityscapes and urban convenience. 

Acclaimed restaurants and bars and cultural and sports venues are located only sidewalks apart offering goings-on before and after dark.

You'll find an array of newly debuted luxury townhomes, light-filled condos, and historical and new construction homes to consider as your own.

Suburban Setting

From Hillsborough and Mebane in the West to Zebulon and even Goldsboro in the East, you can pick from a number of Triangle area suburbs perfectly situated near main thoroughfares offering small-town living and demanded commuter convenience.

Main Street towns like Apex, Cary, Morrisville and Wake Forest make for ideal places to plant roots and grow your family just beyond the hustle and bustle of bigger city life.

 You can select from golf-course communities, mature neighborhoods, new master-planned developments, contemporary townhomes and much more.

Start Your House Hunt

All of our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate agents are ready to help you find the home you seek. In fact, you can meet a few in person this weekend at our area open houses.

HPW Open Houses | June 6 - 7

Haven't found your dream home yet? This could be the weekend. 

Our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate agents have listed fantastic homes in cities and suburbs all over the Triangle region. From Alamance County in the West all the way to Wayne County in the East, we have the homes you seek.

Take advantage of the weekend ahead to plan visits to our agents' area open houses. You're going to want to see the homes you've been eyeing online up close to get a better idea of what they hold.

Plan to set aside a chunk of time at each house so that you may tour it inside and out at your own pace (twice if you like) and then take a drive around the neighborhood and community. Knowledge is the name of the real estate game, and you're going to want to gather as much information as possible to decide if you will make an offer.

HPW Virtual Tours | May 30 - 31

It's the last weekend in May which means two things: (1) it's the final weekend to submit a photo of your favorite senior for a chance to win, and (2) it's a great weekend to go house hunting!

We have partnered with WRAL TV to make a Salute to Seniors for the Class of 2020. You can submit a photo you've taken of your favorite high school or college senior, then tune in to WRAL as they showcase this year's graduating class. One winner will be randomly selected to receive a $2,000 travel voucher to celebrate with your graduate. Five additional winners will be randomly selected each week to receive a $100 gift card to Empire Eats or Local 22. The contest ends at 11:59 p.m. on May 31st which is this Sunday so be sure to get those photos in!

After you're done submitting your favorite photo of your senior, head over to hpw.com/virtual and take some virtual tours of the beautiful homes our HPW real estate agents have listed. With houses of all sizes, price points and locations, there is bound to be one that catches your eye.

Virtual Tours May 23-24

Memorial Day weekend is upon us and Mother Nature looks like she is going to cooperate! (Bye, bye rain!) While this year's weekend may look a little different than previous years, we hope that everyone is able to pay tribute to our nation's brave heroes and then enjoy lots of fun in the sun.

While you're out enjoying the long weekend under Carolina blue skies, why not do a little house hunting right from the comfort of your own home. Maybe it's time to upgrade your backyard, entertainment space and look for a home with a built-in grill and room for dining. Or maybe the kids have been begging to live in a neighborhood with a community pool. 

With houses in all shapes and sizes in highly demanded locations and neighborhoods, our agents' virtual tours are worth a look!

Our HPW real estate agents are ready to (virtually) show you around the beautiful homes they've listed. For even more virtual tours of our listings, head over to hpw.com/virtual.

ICYMI: Our CEO, David Jones, recently talked with WRAL about how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted (or slight lack thereof) the real estate market here in the Triangle.

Real estate is still moving as we are now in the midst of the spring market. In fact, the demand for homes is exceeding the amount of inventory in our market. And as always, we are here to help! 

With that being said, we continue to make the safety and well-being of our agents and clients our top priority. We will work to ensure that all possible safety measures, and precautions, are being taken. We are committed to maintaining reliable service to our clients while doing our part to limit the spread of the COVID-19.

HPW Open Houses | March 21-22

Open House March 21-22We here at Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston make the safety and well-being of our agents and clients our top priority. We will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 outbreak and work to ensure that all possible safety measures and precautions are being taken. We are committed to maintaining reliable service to our clients, while doing our part to limit the spread of the COVID-19.

In order to protect both our clients and agents, we are asking everyone to take precautionary measures:

Wash your hands – and other hygienic practices

Soap is the very best preventative for communicating the virus - so use it.  Wash your hands regularly, for at least 20 seconds, with soap and water.  If you can't wash your hands, the next best thing is to use an anti-bacterial wipe or gel both before, and after, you come into contact with other people, objects, or surfaces. Try to avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. If you sneeze or cough, do it into a tissue, then throw away the tissue, and then wash your hands or wipe them down.

Keep your distance – even from your agent!

We are all about the practice of "social distancing."

Use video conferencing as much as possible

You, your agent, and anyone else you're working with on your transaction should try to communicate as much as possible by videoconference rather than in-person meetings, just to limit the amount of interaction you have with other people. Facetime, Facebook Messenger, Snapchat video, Skype and Zoom are some of the video tools available to use.

Take precautions on showings and open houses

At this point, we see no reason to discontinue showings, or open houses, so long as you follow fundamental distancing and hygienic protocols. Try to follow these guidelines:

  • Again, keep your distance, even if it seems unfriendly
  • Remember: No shaking hands when you meet!
  • Drive your own car to showings, rather than traveling with the agent in his or her car
  • Minimize touching surfaces in houses
  • Bring paper towels, tissues, or disposable gloves with you to hold when you open doors or touch surfaces.
  • Try to wash, or wipe down, your hands on the way in and the way out.
  • At the open house, keep your distance from other visitors and let the hosting agent sign you in, rather than handle a clipboard or tablet.

If you're not feeling well, or are part of the "high-risk" demographic, please stay home

If you're not feeling well with any kind of cough or fever, please stay home. At this point, there is no need to take chances or put others at risk. This is especially true if you are "high-risk" – if you are over the age of 60 or have any pre-existing conditions you should reduce, if not, eliminate all outside contact as much as possible. 

Again, we are committed to maintaining reliable service to our clients and are here to help you in your next real estate transaction, while doing our part to prevent the spread of the COVID-19.

We here at Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston make the safety and well-being of our agents and clients our top priority. We will continue to closely monitor the coronavirus outbreak and work to ensure that all possible safety measures and precautions are being taken. We are committed to maintaining reliable service to our clients while doing our part to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

In order to protect both our clients and agents, we are asking everyone to take precautionary measures:

Wash your hands – and other hygienic practices

Soap is the very best preventative for communicating the virus, so use it.  Wash your hands regularly, for at least 20 seconds, with soap and water.  If you can't wash your hands, the next best thing is to use an anti-bacterial wipe or gel both before and after you come into contact with other people, objects, or surfaces. And try to avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. If you sneeze or cough, do it into a tissue, then throw away the tissue, then wash your hands or wipe them down.

Keep your distance – even from your agent!

We are all about the practice of "social distancing.

Use video conferencing as much as possible

You and your agent – and anyone else you're working with on your transaction should try to communicate as much as possible by videoconference rather than in-person meetings, just to limit the amount of interaction you have with other people. Facetime, Facebook Messenger, Snapchat video, Skype and Zoom are some of the video tools available to use.

Take precautions on showings and open houses

At this point, we see no reason to discontinue showings or open houses so long as you follow fundamental distancing and hygienic protocols.  Try to follow these guidelines:

  • Again, keep your distance, even if it seems unfriendly
  • Remember: No shaking hands when you meet!
  • Drive your own car to showings, rather than traveling with the agent in his or her car
  • Minimize touching of surfaces in houses
  • Bring paper towels, tissues or disposable gloves with you to hold when you open doors or touch surfaces.
  • Try to wash or wipe down your hands on the way in and the way out.
  • At the open house, keep your distance from other visitors and let the hosting agent sign you in rather than handle a clipboard or tablet.

If you're not feeling well or are part of the "high-risk" demographic, please stay home

If you're not feeling well with any kind of cough or fever, please stay home. At this point, there is no need to take chances or put others at risk. This is especially true if you are "high-risk" – if you are over the age of 60 or have any pre-existing conditions you should reduce, if not, eliminate all outside contact as much as possible. 

Again, we are committed to maintaining reliable service to our clients and are here to help you in your next real estate transaction while doing our part to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

HPW Open Houses | February 29 – March 1

Open House Feb 29 - March 1

Attention home buyers – this is THE weekend for you to find your new home and we're ready to help.

Our in-the-know real estate agents will be hosting open houses this Saturday and Sunday in nearly every corner of this prospering Triangle region and Goldsboro, too. It's time to map out a plan to make the most of this fall weekend. 

 

Open House Tips For Buyers 

It doesn't matter if you're entering the second month of your house hunt or are just getting started, you're going to want to make the most of your open house visits. 

Do Some Digging 

Power up your computer or charge up your Smart Phone and start "digging" for information on the homes you plan to visit. Access a home valuation estimate on our HPW.com website to review a comprehensive report with property details, recent area sales, and more useful information for each of the homes you like. 

Take Your Time

Give yourself ample time to tour the homes you visit. Walkthrough each home with the onsite agent and then go back through on your own. Take time to step into the backyard or stroll down the street. Buying a home is a big deal, and you're going to want to gather every detail possible to make an educated decision. 

Curb Your Enthusiasm 

Attending an open house is exciting, especially when you think the home may be perfect for you and your family. Do your best to remain cool, calm, and collected as you take your tour to ensure you see the home as it really is, without the rose-colored lenses.

It may be the beginning of the new year, but it will feel almost spring-like this weekend in our beautiful area of the state.

You'll find newly listed properties and homes in all shapes and sizes that will check off all the boxes on your "must-have" list!

Visit our HPW Open Houses to scroll through all of the homes you can stroll through this Saturday and Sunday and then hit the road to see them.

Whatever your choices are, be sure to allow plenty of time to do some house-browsing by visiting HPW Open Houses, where our local real estate agents know the market inside and out and are ready to show you the homes they've listed and answer any questions you may have.

Are you out and about chasing down the best Black Friday deals in town? Scoring holiday gifts for your loved ones and friends (and yourself) will be a fantastic feat, but imagine the joy of finding your new home will bring.

You may have heard that spring and summer are the time to buy, but there are many reasons you should consider house hunting during the cold winter months.

Buying A Home During The Winter Months

Less Competition

It's common for buyer-competition to thin out in the winter as many people prefer to house hunt during the warmer seasons when the school year is waning.

More Motivated Sellers

Winter home sellers are often more motivated to close a deal than those who sell during the peak season. They may be relocating for a job promotion, hoping to get a sale squared away before the new year, or simply ready to get their real estate journey underway.

Discover And Uncover      

Winter weather can tax a home. From the roof and gutters to the HVAC, plumbing and drafty doors, cold temperatures may reveal issues that you would otherwise have overlooked in warmer months.

Start Your Search

Let our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate agents help you find the home you seek. Our listing agents will be happy to host you at their open houses this Saturday and Sunday.
