  • Things to Consider During "Selling Season"

    Posted in Market Reports, News You Can Use, Team Gale, Wilmington NC Real Estate on May 22, 2015

    Spring is the busiest time for home sales, and an unbalanced market gives sellers a real advantage. Sales are occurring at a faster rate than new listings, so buyer's with newly approved, low interest loans are scooping up the attractive area properties.

    Last month, RIS Media's House Call column pointed out five key items to consider in making the decision to move. 

    First, are you frustrated by lack of space, constantly rearranging closets and hesitant about hosting overnight guests? Have your kids' outgrown their shared bedro...

  • You're Home with Team Gale - Affordable Housing

    Posted in Buyer Tips, Team Gale, You're Home with Team Gale Radio on May 18, 2015

    Jody Wainio from Buyer Choice Realty sat down with Tom Gale on the "You're Home" show this weekend to talk about affordable housing options in New Hanover County.

    Wainio has been involved with affordable housing since 2005, serving on various committees and boards. Wainio was quick to point out that "affordable housing" has become synonymous with "public housing," though they are quite different. The earmark for a "burdened" homeowner is anyone who shells out more than 30% of their annual income to mortgage, insurance, and property maintenance.

    The pair discussed the 16-hour "Workforce Housing...
