Charleston South Carolina in the news!

Wed, Oct 21st 2009 2:38 pm by Georgia Bell General

Well, we are certainly in the right place at the right time!

Conde Nast - the luxury travel magazine - has named our beautiful city as the second most fabulous place to visit (and live)

We are second only to San Francisco, California and frankly, I find that debatable...

I have been to San Francisco - it is beautiful - but, honestly, Charleston is far more livable and far more desirable. Of course, that is only my opinion... but I hear from those out on the West Coast that they LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, Charleston, SC

Our restaurants are simply outstanding - delightful cuisine, 5 star service, friendly staff etc etc

And how about the gracious hotel personnel... smiling faces and always helpf...

Shouldn't I wait to buy? Isn't it too soon to buy right now?

Fri, Sep 25th 2009 10:18 am by Georgia Bell General

Many buyer's are in a paralyis by analysis mode right now. Afraid that the market is going lower and believing that there are just so manyproperties on the market right now, they don't feel any urgency to buy now

If you are feeling that way, I think I can help you

If, for example, you are looking at Charleston, SC to purchase a property., I can get facts and more facts for you - including statistics that will be helpful - to help you have a firm grasp on the market.  Armed with figures and facts, you can feel much more certainty about your purchase.

Low interest rates is so much more important right now than mst people/buyers realize...Rates are now at late-1950's levels  They have now...

Real Estate Sales are Headed in the Right Direction!

Wed, Sep 23rd 2009 8:15 pm by Georgia Bell General

Pending home sales in July reached the highest mark in 2 years.  and closed sales also continued in an upward trend

As a result inventories are tightening  In June there were 3.8 million properties for sale as opposed to 4.5 million properties for sale the previous year

 

Durable goods are up, the stock market has made a nice comeback... good indications about the ecoomy!

 

Thanks to these promising signs, the chief economist for the National Association of Realtors has forecast higher home sales and stabilizing prices in the year ahead.

Despite some other factors that could delay a complete recovery, we have reason to be confidant..  WIth home sales heading up and inventories shrin...

Looney Valley - is Charleston SC another San Francisco?

Sun, Sep 20th 2009 9:10 pm by Georgia Bell General

While I really doubt that we could ever be another San Francisco, we do have some similarities

San Francisco started out as a sophisiticated, conservative, city of commerce

Charleston SC is sophisticated - southern style - conservative (in some ways) and a city of commerce

Do we have a Harry Aleo??

Harry Aleo lived in San Francisco and only recently died. One of his favorite quotes was his declaration that his REAL ESTATE office was "an island of traditional conservative values in a sea of latte sipping liberal loonies"

He had one of the oldest real estate offices in the city of San Francisco.

I look at our old line offices in our fair city and I ask myself the question "Do we have ...

Is your water heater safe??

Thu, Sep 17th 2009 3:26 pm by Georgia Bell General

This may seem trivial with all that is going on in the market and real estate world today!  But it really is not trivial at all  Did you know that water heaters can be a ticking time bomb if they do not have something called a TPR valve

The TPR valve is a "temperature pressure relief valve"  When working properly, it will keep your water heater from exploding when the water heater becomes too hot.  Otherwise, if it is not working properly, you could be in for a terrible explosion causing massive property damage and possible injury or even death to occupants.

So please, have your water heater checked ...

And sleep better at night!
