Home Sales Increase 41 % in Chapel Hill, Durham, and Raleigh!

by Masha Halpern

Shrinking inventory is creating frustration for buyers in the local marketplace. The News and Observer reported a surge in home sales - many fast selling homes with multiple offers! Making it even more competitive... is the low inventory of available homes. Consider this:

At the end of  there were 7,667 homes for sale ( new and resale ). That's down 23 % from last year and 42 % from two years ago. What does all this mean for you and me-  Chapel Hill, Durham, and Raleigh areas have a three month supply of housing for buyers to choose from.

Adding to the low inventory is the fact that area home prices have remained relatively flat- or stable -  a more positive label for it- so area home owners have been hesitant to offer their homes for sale. This makes it a bit tougher to find a home if you are a buyer today.

The good new is that as buyers compete for homes currently on the market; prices will increase- and ultimately more sellers will put their home up for sale!

Local appraisers have stated that  low inventory will be the 'name of the game for much of the summer and possibly the fall of this year. Local appraiser Stacey Anfindsen shared in the N&O article, written by David Bracken, that he expects inventory to 'flat-line' much of the year through the third quarter of 2013.

Good news for sellers of current Chapel Hill homes for sale? Yes, Days on the market has drastically reduced- down 31 days from April of last year!

These days, we’re all busy with work, family and friends. There’s so little extra time left,  it's just human nature that some things are forgotten. Things like changing the batteries in the smoke-alarms or the filters in the HVAC system. You’d do them if you remembered, right?

Now, perhaps you won’t have to worry about remembering. BrightNest is a free app for iPhone and iPads that organizes cleaning and schedules maintenance tasks for you.  After creating an account, or using Facebook, to sign in to the service, you’ll answer some basic questions and then the App is ready to work for you.

BrightNest, which you can also access on the web, will suggest a variety of tasks for you to do, and provide an estimate of how long they’ll take, how hard they’ll be and a guide to how to get them done.  You can then add them to your schedule. If there’s a task not listed in the App, you can add it on the website itself.

Right now, BrightNest is only available for iOS, or through the web. The website includes a variety of excellent, time-saving ideas, from how to create a pallet garden to making small spaces work.

Like similar Apps, BrightNest is a way to simplify your life a bit. And if you're in the market to buy or sell your house, let me simplify that part of your life!
