Saturday's Shots - And You Thought You'd Seen It All!It's been a celebratory week with the brokerage change and all that entails - as well as the market going like gangbusters right now! I took my showing agent and my assistant (The Maxwell House Group!) out to lunch near our new office. We took a survey recently to see what the hottest spots near our new office were for a client. Hands down, Calle Sol Latin Café & Cevicheria was the #1 recommendation for lunch. And, it did not disappoint! I had to share our appetizer with you...This was ordered because it sounded so sinful that it HAD to be good - and I cannot lie, it was AMAZING! The dish is called SALCHIPAPA and it consists of Peruvian fries, topped with crispy hot dog bites, Aji amarillo mayo, cilantro aioli (YUM!), ketcuup and FRIE...

 Charlottes' Food Truck Friday Has Doubled In SizeAbout 4 years ago the wildly popular "Food Truck Fridays" began on a small piece of land in Southend.  That location has since been sold but thankfully they have found a new location. Starting this spring, food truck Fridays will be taking place at a Mecklenburg County-owned property at South Tryon and Kingston, as well as Plaza Midwood’s Light Factory (on the corner of Central Avenue and Nandina Street).The new plan for South End will be to completely shut down Kingston Street for the food trucks to park, and the hundreds of people to gather to find new food and new friends. The new Plaza Midwood location will be on paved lot, but it’s centrally located to the new Harris Teeter, Common Market, Dairy Queen, and dozens of other Plaza Midw...

    As we raise our children and talk about what is fair, we always say that everyone deserves a second chance. Well the same goes for neighborhoods and homes! One of our most popular areas of revitalization and growth in the Charlotte area is The Plaza – Midwood neighborhood in Charlotte, NC.  This area was first developed in the 1920’s as one of the streetcar suburbs. Apparently, urban flight of the 1950’s through the 1960’s led this area to suffer and fall into decline. However, in the 1970’s, the area residents realized they needed to preserve the area and they developed a group to do just that. Click Here to go to the Plaza Midwood Website.

Plaza Midwood Neighborhood Real Estate Update Data Gathered from the CMLS: 4/1/2010 - 4/30/2010 Foreclosure data gathered from Realist April proved to be a great month for real estate in the Plaza Midwood neighborhood of Charlotte. In 2009, only four single family homes sold in the entire month of April at an average sales price of $304,125 at an average of $165 per square foot. During April 2010, home sales tripled with 12 recorded closings and an average sales price of $270,834 at an average price per square foot at $156. There's a lot more behind those numbers than a $9.00 per square foot drop in value. Last month, only two of the closed sales were marked as being a bank-owned foreclosed property (known as a REO). Both of the REO properties were in need of repair with 2819 Attaberry ...
