Junk Removal for Charlotte Realtors

How great is it to be talking about “pre-recession”  numbers? That’s what appears to be going on in the Charlotte real estate market according to the Charlotte Regional Realtors Association. Based on their number crunching, they are happy to report that closings across the 10-county area shot up whooping 22.2 percent during the month of July from the same time a year ago. That follows 2,657 closings in the Charlotte area in June which was a nice bump from the 2,330 of closings that happened in June 2011.

There’s also good news about price points as well. The average sale price increased by 3.4% in July. That makes the sixth consecutive month of increases. “Pending contracts have always been seen as a gauge of demand,” says Jennifer Frontera, association president. “Contract activity has been elevated for nearly a year now. The fact that contracts are falling at this time of year shows that the market is now performing in a similar fashion to the way it did before the recession, with contracts and closings peaking in midsummer and falling as the selling season winds down.”

You can sum all of this up to mean that the Charlotte real estate market is bounding back. That puts realtors in the hot seat as they scramble to lock down listings. As a realtor are you playing it safe or thinking outside of the box? Thinking out of the box might have you considering foreclosed listings. A savvy realtor would connect with a bank or lending company to take over the old listings and any new ones that might crop up in the coming months. The banks might consider these “toxic assets” but there’s gold in every one of those houses if you know how to “mine” it properly.

We all know the value of staging a home but a foreclosed property might need a bit more work to get it ready for that phase. That’s where a company like Junk King Charlotte can come into play. Junk King specializes in professional junk removal. Home owners and apartment renters have turned to Junk King to help them clear out the clutter of their lives. As a realtor, you can tap into the same resources and have Junk King clean up a foreclosed property. Don’t worry about the condition of an abandoned home. Junk King has seen it all and they’re not afraid of a little hard work.

While the Junk King Charlotte crew is clearing out a property you can focus on preparing the listing and getting the word out about this terrific opportunity. In fact, Junk King will probably get that house cleaned quicker than you think. Hire them on a Monday. Clean up on a Tuesday and by the weekend that house will be ready for viewing by potential buyers. Make Junk King a part of your sales team today!

Charlotte Appliance Buying and Disposal Guide

Now that the holiday shopping rush is officially over it’s time to look forward to the New Year and figure out what you really need around the house. Sure, you might have received plenty of thoughtful gifts but were they what you really needed such as a new refrigerator or dishwasher? While it is true that those big ticket items aren’t usually associated with holiday gift giving that doesn’t mean you wouldn’t appreciate trading in your old faulty appliances for brand-new versions. You might be pleasantly surprised to discover that major kitchen appliances are being sold at sharp discounts. That’s because stores want to move out their inventory from last year and make way for the newer models.
As you make your way to the Charlotte area shopping malls to check out the potential appliance bargains you should be thinking about exactly what your needs are. If you’re shopping for yourself that’s easy: you just pick what works for you. However, if you that a house full of folks who will be putting these appliances through their paces you need to consider size and features. Size does matter especially with larger families. This is why you should be shopping for a bigger capacity refrigerator or dishwasher. With a larger capacity dishwasher you’ll be able to fill it up with more dishes and run it less often than you would with a smaller dishwasher. As for the bigger refrigerator, you just need that for all the food! But that doesn’t mean you can’t be shopping for appliances with better energy efficiency than the ones you’re using now. In fact, you might find that the extra money you spend on a modern energy-efficient refrigerator could end up saving you money on your electricity bill down the road.
As with every other major purchase it pays to shop around when you are looking for appliances. Today, comparison shopping is easier than ever. You can go to one store, find a model you’re looking for and then scan the barcode into a special phone app. That app then tells you exactly where to find the same model at a better price. Armed with that kind of information you could turn to your sales clerk and simply say “match this price or I’m out of here!”
You’ll also want to find out about the extras in terms of delivery and installation. Any major kitchen appliance will require some form of hook up and installation. If you find yourself in a DIY kind of mood that won’t be a problem but you might be better served to let the professional handle the installation.
Speaking of professionals, you could also call upon these types of folks with regard to getting rid of your old appliances. Professional junk haulers from Junk King Charlotte can arrive in the same day that you expect delivery of your new item and take away the old fridge, stove or dishwasher. While these junk haulers are carting off your appliances they can also take away all kinds of other junk you might be hanging onto for no good reason! Use the excuse of buying new appliances for also getting rid of all your junk.

Charlotte Refrigerator Buying & Disposal Guide

Some people are just die-hard shoppers. They will think nothing of hopping into the SUV and heading off to the SouthPark or NorthLake Mall at the crack of dawn to be the first in line for a new sale. These are the same folks who might camp out overnight on Thanksgiving to makes sure they’ll be able to snag some black Friday bargains. If you have a shopper like this in your life, its sometimes better to just give them your own list and let them have at it instead of trying to tag along. In many cases, you’ll just be left in the dust!
Then there is the shopper who likes to do their research before buying any item. For them there can be no great resource than the internet. With just a click of the mouse they can download all kinds of consumer report ratings, testimonials and comparison shop. There are also apps for the iPhone which let you snap a picture of a product in a store and see if you can find a better deal somewhere else. Usually this type of intense research works best when you are considering a major purchase such as a computer, television or big kitchen appliance.
If you happen to be in the market for a new refrigerator you might want to consider the following areas of research:
Capacity. When thinking about refrigerator capacity, you’re basically thinking about how much food and drinks you want to keep cold or frozen. This comes down to a matter of how many folks are living under your roof. A married couple can get away with around 8 cubic feet of storage capacity. That is just on the cold side. Add another 8 cubic feet for the freezer. For each additional person, factor in an additional cubic foot for cold and freezer foods. That will be a good capacity to shoot for.
Size. Talking about the size of your refrigerator has to do with how the ice box is going to fit in your current kitchen layout. This comes down to an issue of standard size (which is the most common) or a custom model that is built in to your existing countertops. The refrigerators that become flush with cabinetry can give a very sleek and elegant look to a kitchen but they also might be hard to replace. There are also smaller kitchens that take a fridge that fits under the counter.
Special features. How much fun do you want to have with your refrigerator? Do you want water dispensed along with ice? Would you like different kinds of ice (crushed or cubed)? Do you want a built in TV screen? A special container for eggs? A lettuce crisper? There a plenty of special features you can add to get the most out of your fridge experience.
EnergyStar. We live in an age where the majority of our kitchen appliances are EnergyStar rated. This means they comply with federal regulations with regard to energy efficiency. But even with the EnergyStar rating you can still compare different makes and models to find the one that will generate the most savings.
Style. This refers to what your new fridge is going to look like. Gone are the days of being able to pick just a white refrigerator. You can now select from a wide variety of colors and finishes.
As soon as you pick out your new fridge, make sure you make arrangements for Junk King Charlotte to show up to get rid of your old model in an easy and affordable manner.
