Charlotte is beginning to reopen, but are we in the clear?

As of today, we find ourselves right in the middle of an extensive plan to reopen our vibrant, beloved city. We’re now able to travel freely throughout the area for non-essential purposes, like going for a quick jog along the greenway or enjoying a well-planned picnic at a local park. We’re able to show up to support some of our favorite local businesses like restaurants, boutiques, and homegood purveyors who need those dollars to keep their employees on payroll and sufficient food on their family’s table.

While we’re all more than excited to move forward and resume some sense of normalcy, whatever that may look like from your perspective, it’s never been more important to continue to

Find a Realtor you can trust: 

Buying a home is a very personal and painstaking process - but, if you’ve enlisted the support of the “right” Realtor, then the process will likely also be a great experience and one for the books.

So how do you go about finding a trusted, knowledgeable and compassionate expert to help you buy and/or sell your next home in Charlotte? There are a number of ways, really. You could call up a good friend and ask for a referral. You could invest some time in combing through websites and Googling client reviews. You could even go old school and stop in to a brick and mortar location. But if you truly want to maximize your chances of working with an agent who is not only well versed, but also, a trusted neighbor who loves

TL;DR: We're a forward-thinking, fast-moving real estate start up that puts people first. We’re motivated and governed by a handful of core values that have earned us global industry recognition and thousands of pretty amazing client reviews. 

We Started with a Clear Vision to Create Great Experiences

If your earlier plans to take advantage of a blossoming spring market were soured on short notice, don’t count yourself out of a quick, full-price close quite yet. 

While our traditional real estate SOPs have pivoted, all hope is not lost. Hang in there, buddy.

Just last week in Mecklenburg County, there were 62 homes listed as “coming soon,” 294 brand-new listings, and another 337 homes that went under contract. 

While we’ve hit some turbulence, it seems as if we’re still moving right along - and we may even hit cruising altitude sooner than later. 

Though we’re missing the face-to-face interactions with our clients, we’ve had a lot of fun catching up with them on Social Media, Facetime, Google Duo and Zoom. A lot of you have had

Should I buy a house during COVID-19?

 Just last week, Yahoo Money reported that the term “Should I buy a house?” is being Googled now more than ever before. Whether the bulk of these search inquiries are would-be homebuyers interested in entering the market or soon-to-be homeowners already under contract, remains unclear at this point. 

But, with interest rates continuing to fall and the number of mortgage applications on the rise, buyers are actively weighing the benefits of purchasing at historic low rates against the uncertainty of COVID-19’s long-term impact on the local, national and global economies.

Only you can determine if you should make a home purchase during this time, but The Redbud Group is here to let you know that we’ve taken

One of the very best things about owning a home is having your own space to kick back and relax, entertain, and create exciting memories that will last a lifetime. Along with the keys to your home, comes the opportunity for greater privacy, stability, and the potential for long-term wealth for your family. Naturally, you will want to care for and protect your property as much as possible; because of that fact, many Charlotte-area homeowners often choose to take an extra precaution by installing a home security system from a local provider.

 Ideally, the first thing to think about when choosing a home security system is to picture your home itself. You want to consider where you live, the size of your home, as well as your community’s HOA

For many Americans, buying a home is a rite of passage. It is a symbol of independence and financial stability. In fact, according to the Federal Reserve’s Survey of Consumer Finances, 65.2% of families owned their primary residence in 2013.

Now, if you are thinking of buying a home there are important decisions that you have to make. Among these is whether you want to buy a move-in ready home or a fixer-upper.

Simply put, a move-in ready home is complete when you move in. A fixer-upper, on the other hand, is a property that will require repair (redesign, reconstruction, or redecoration), explains Derek Dawson of Dawson Property Management. Each option has its pros and cons.

Pros of Buying a Move-In Ready Home

      As a REALTOR® I get to explore every area of Charlotte in a much different way than many others.  I see different homes all around the Queen City on a daily basis, but I am always exploring the home’s surrounding areas as well.  I am habitually early for everything, so to kill time before a meeting I see and visit a lot of the small restaurants, strip malls, and neighborhoods people wouldn’t necessarily visit unless they lived in that area.

     There are so many cool areas in Charlotte, but no matter where I explore, or how spectacular the house is, nothing trumps the positives of living in NoDa for me.  Finding that area to live that fits your life is so much more important than if
