Save Money on Oceanfront Homes in Holden BeachSorry fixed the video.  Evidently must use the embed function to make it work! Everyone this is Jay Seville the owner of Wilmington-real-estate.com. In the present day I'm mosting likely to attend to the issue of rental income and the usual phrase "established rental income." I speak with many people on a daily basis, each week I'm talking to tons of people around the country about Holden Beach oceanfronts. As well as they're coming down here most of you to acquire your second house as an investment home. We shop for it as a 2nd property to have a reduced interest rate, and also many people simply wish to utilize it or a week or two yearly and lease it out the remainder of the year as long as attainable of what we call vacation rental income...

  Hi All!I am still wondering how to get Linking points in the system.  I have worked on this for an hour or so with no success.  I do not understand what a tag is either.  Tags are not key words.  How do you make these tags work when trying to get more exposure.  I sat through an hour webinar yesterday to learn some of this.  But guess I am just not that techy.I know that some of you are laughing at this old dog learning new tricks.  But at least I am willing to learn I am willing to learn..So email me or call me and teach me if you will. Ginger

So if you read my last post and pursued those properties you’re now familiar with the Brunswick Islands. Perhaps you checked out Sunset Beach and Holden Beach while you were there, too. Those are the other two beaches that make up the Brunswick Islands off the coast of North Carolina. There is Holden Beach oceanfront property that you may have noticed while you were there. If no, you can always go back and take a look. Or you can go to the Carolina Plantations website and look up any Holden Beach oceanfront property you have an interest in and get a wealth of information right there. They have a fully informative website with everything you need to know all in one place. If you find a property in Holden Beach that you want to see up close and personal and a drive-by only served to peak ...

  Re-blogged by 0 agents       Well, I have been in this business since 1983..and those are the terms that we used to folks that just came in to our offices as sight seers.."Tire Kickers and Tooth Pickers"... or Tooth Picker and Tire Kickers.  All the same they are folks that may not be ready to buy.  I have not used that term in a long time but it seems prevelant today also. Are you dealing with more of the folks today.  Maybe there is more activity... WE are getting some great traffic right now.  I think that we are coming out of a deep sleep. Hopefully we will wake up and find that we are moving forward. Have a great weekend..

  Open Houses historically have not been well received in our area and I am trying to come up with some very unusual ideas that will set my properties apart and draw more attention. Balloons, Flags, Flyers are just the norm here.  You have to spend a lot of money on catering or preparing food for the masses.  They will come to an Agent Open House if you feed them You are the experts and I has hoped that you would share some of your ideas. I want this to be the most successful Open Houses in the area. Thanks for sharing any tips or ideas. Ginger of Southport ~ North Carolina With warm regards,

On the Brunswick Islands of North Carolina there are many beautiful Holden Beach homes for sale. I was recently there looking at real estate on the islands and came across this beauty. This is not your typical beach house by any means. This 5,600+ square foot home has 6 bedrooms and 4 and a half bathrooms and sits upon an oversized lot. The three story home has a den on each floor and a gourmet kitchen. The garage has an additional cooking area with cabinetry, gas rank, sink and brick fireplace designed specifically for oyster roasting! How cool is that! There’s also a formal dining room with wet bar. Located in a rarely found “No Wake” zone you won’t have to deal with speedboats and other high speed water traffic. Enjoy the oversized pier, dock and boatlift right on your own property. ...

  I don't know about you all, but I am having a harder time pleasing the BPO  folks.  I am giving them  factual information based on our local MLS and the figures tell the truth.  They are wanting us to go back and get closer comparable properties  When nothing has sold in that area you must go outside that community to find comparable to do the analysis.   I am also finding, after I have done the work...they order has been canceled.   Then, we have spent our time and energy to do the work and will not be compensated for it. What do you do with this scenario?   Ginger of Southport

What a great day to get out and meet and greet the public.  In a course that I am taking, I am required to get out and meet folks, hand out my business card and enjoy talking with them.  This has been such fun...you do this of course with a Smile on your face. In the process today, I picked up four leads and have one appointment this week.  That is not bad on a sunny day doing what I should do. Ginger

WE went to the Buffini Introduction in Raleigh about 2 weeks ago.  Many of us were very impressed with the presentation and there for 8 of us that believe what we heard and we are going to continue on with the course for the next 100 days.  I think it will jump start my real estate career of 29 years.  I am truly looking forward to this. If you need a fresh start....check out Buffini and company... Take care, Ginger of Southport

Have you ever had short sale nightmares... Think of al the things that can go wrong. 1.  Seller declaring Bankruptcy with out telling you. 2.  Sellers seperated and getting a divorce 3.  A 2nd of the property that you did not know about 4.  Sellers with no money at all. 5.  Utilites cut off 6.  Furniture and Food left in house (no electricity) 7.  Bankruptcy Attorney working with one of the sellers....Closing Attorney with the other seller. 8.  Closing Secretary..out sick with the flu 9.  Buyer having to bring money to the table for the seller..   The list goes on and on.  Committment from the 1st lein holder and the 2nd lein holder agree that this can be done. Still trying to pull it together. Ginger of Southport

  In our sales meeting, our discussion was centered around our fund raising for Habitat for Humanity. Our office has been making Christmas Wreaths for YOUR front Door.  We get together at night (about 10 of us) and sing carols with the radio and decorate these beautiful wreaths.  Sell them for $20 each.  We have made about $600. toward the house that we are building. Such fun..   Ginger

   It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  Everywhere you go right now...Christmas is in the air.  You hear folks singing...Christmas Plays at Church.  Trees being decorated....cookies and Canady being made...Christmas Parties everywhere. Our Month is filled up with events. Let's take a minute and stop! and think! All of the trimmings of Christmas are not the reason for Christmas.  Christmas is our time to celebrate the birth of Jesus, our Savior. Merry Christmas to you. Ginger
