Interview agents
"It’s tempting to choose the real estate agent who recommends the highest list price for your home. It’s best to talk to an agent and honestly seek to understand their analysis of the market for your property. While it’s true that home prices rose in 2017, values vary from one property to another, based on their particular condition. Homeowners sometimes overestimate the value of their property in relation to neighboring homes, but agents have real-time data at their fingertips that can help you determine an appropriate listing price".- Jon Coile
REALIST HOMES does the research and training to ensure that your property, whether buying or selling, is listed appropriately, and will pull comps and show you what the current price is for the property. Although it is tempting to want to list a price higher, our Agents will explain the pros and cons to listing, and putting in offers , that will benefit you as a valued client. No one wants to see a house overly priced and on the market too long, unless it is a buyer looking to buy the property at a discounted price. Get an educated, and qualified Agent to list your property or it could end up costing you! Let us help you make informed decisions when BUYING or SELLING.

Landscaping for year round growth in Coastal NC

We would all love to have a beautiful yard, year-round!! We did some research and found an amazing tool that helps when it’s time to work on your landscaping project. A helpful hint that we have found- buy plants year-round and have a plan= you don't need to buy all of the plants at once. Leave open spaces for future planting and one HUGE item sometimes forgotten, ensure the plants have property drainage. Some plants need less water and when they are over watered (naturally or by rain) they turn yellow. Build up a slight mound, that’s easily covered with growth from the plant for the ones that need less water. Happy Planting and let us know how it goes, we are working on this at the same time you are!!
