NC Mountain Land With Owner Financing

by Dex Hubbard

With banks tightening the grip on land loans more and more buyer clients have started using  owner financing to obtain their dream property. This allows the  buyer to buy their property with less money down and also less aggravation of dealing with banks. I am seeing properties purchased with a little as 10 ( Ten ) percent down and loans with 3 to 5 year balloon payments. The payments are figured over a 15 to 30 year amortization  period.  Properties with Paved Roads, Underground Utilities, Community Water, and Septic Permits on file are some of the type properties available . The days of not being able to get the Down Payment for a land purchase are reduced and these are desirable properties. These Properties consist of  USFS borders, Long Range View Lots, Executive Lots, Unrestricted properties, and Creek/Branch Lots. Here are links to Owner Financed options for you to preview. If I can make your dream happen with my local knowledge being able to save you thousands, please contact me at Dex@DexHubbard.com and my Cell # is 828-361-4710, and check out two separate MLS Search Engines and see all properties available, www.DexHubbard.com, Cheap Quality View/Creek/Executive Land Lots Stating at 6,900.00, Call Dex and let him lead the way.  See LINKS Below

Home Prices Have Already Hit Bottom

Economists Say Home Prices Have Already Hit Bottom

Home prices in the United States found their floor during the early part of 2010 and are expected to begin trending upward next year, according to a panel of elite economists surveyed by the National Association for Business Economics (NABE) for its October 2010 Outlook.

“The housing recovery is intact, but tepid overall. Home prices have hit bottom,” NABE stated in its report outlining the survey results.

The panel anticipated a 1.5 percent drop in residential home values this year, and that decline has already been registered through the first half of 2010, NABE explained.

The group of economists is projecting gains in home prices of 1.2 percent over the course of 2011, but they warn that the modest increase will not keep up with the broader measures of inflation.

NABE panelists expect any evidence of price weakness post-tax incentive to be temporary. Their assessments of the importance of the government’s recent stimulus measures in the form of tax breaks for homebuyers vary widely. Nearly one-third feel that a persistent relapse will follow the incentives’ expiration, while the remaining two-thirds believe an underlying recovery is in place.

When it comes to the distressed side of the business, it’s become clear that the nation’s high level of unemployment is now one of the primary triggers of default among struggling homeowners. Getting more people back to work is key to a recovery in housing and getting a handle on still-rising delinquency numbers. But NABE’s panel warns that labor market conditions will be slow to improve.

The economists are forecasting monthly payroll gains to average 150,000 or less until the latter half of 2011, at which time gains will improve to a range of 170,000 to 175,000. The unemployment rate is expected to persist at over 9.5 percent through midyear 2011, before easing only slightly to 9.2 percent by the end of next year.

“This will mark the worst post-recession job recovery on record,” NABE said.

NABE panelists trimmed their projections on overall economic growth. Those projections now remain sub-par through year-end, the organization explained.

“This summer’s slowdown has exposed the economy’s sensitivity to wealth losses, the unwinding of debt, and the reductions in economic stimulus,” said Richard Wobbekind, NABE president-elect and associate dean of the Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado-Boulder. “Confidence in the expansion’s durability is intact, but recent economic weakness has prompted many panelists to scale back expectations for the year ahead.”

The October 2010 NABE Outlook presents the consensus of macroeconomic forecasts from a panel of 46 professional analysts. The group included economists from such firms as Moody’s Analytics, the PMI Group, Fannie Mae, and Goldman Sachs.


Autumn is in the air - Smell the Colors

Autumn is in the Air - Smell the Colors

 

Autumn is in the air - Smell the Colors

By: Roz Barnett


Autumn is a preferred time of year by many people to come to the mountains of Murphy, North Carolina to see the beautiful color of the changing leaves. The colors are so vivid with orange - the color of pumpkins that gets you in the mood for pumpkin-carving, and you know Halloween, haunted houses, trick-or-treating is just around the corner.

Another leaf color that you would find here in Murphy is the candy apple red color - it reminds us to go to the local community centers in this area and get ready to bob for apples. Oh what fun!

Yellow leaves remind us that soon that the mornings are cool and the days are filled with sunshine - but ohhh those nights - better put a log in the fireplace and let the cheery yellow/orange colors lull you into a peaceful sleep. Snuggle under those blankets.

Brown leaves let us know to get ready for the hayrides in the area, and then to get our rakes out - soon the big leaf piles will let everyone run and jump in the pile of leaves. Kids of all ages and adults really like doing this.

There are so many chances to take pictures and videos of these beautiful trees with their vivid leaf colors here in the mountains of Murphy, North Carolina and the surrounding areas. It's free, it's fun, and you can make an entire day or week-end or week of visiting the western North Carolina area this Autumn. There are many areas in the mountains that you definitely do not want to miss if you are interested in seeing the best autumn foliage.

 
Great Smoky National Park - has an entrance in Cherokee, North Carolina as well as two cities in the adjourning state of Tennessee, this national park boasts some of the best views of fall leaves that change to bright and beautiful colors like red, brown, yellow, orange, and purple. According to tourists, the best time in the fall to see the leaves at the peak of their beauty is mid-October. Park admission is free, so if you're looking for a free activity to do, grab a friend, your best camera and a brown bag lunch and head over to the Great Smoky National Park this October.
