    Home Buyer Tips to Win a Bidding War

    Written by Mary Beth Tice

    Recently Team Gale has been noticing a trend. Many of our properties have offers on the table within a week of hitting the market and not just one offer, but several. Sellers are now having their pick of offers to choose from as the days of a buyer’s market slip away and the seller’s market returns and with it, the bidding wars.

    If you are a potential buyer, then you potentially could find yourself in a bidding war. How do you win such a war? It’s not always about who offers the most on a property or who can pay cash but which offe...

    The Smells of a Home

    Written by Mary Beth Tice

    I am a huge fan of candles and room fresheners that make my apartment smell like a home (and truth be told not like my two dogs). I have searched high and low to find something that speaks to me and when I smell it in a store, it immediately makes me feel at home. Recently I have become quite found of having a cup of tea to help me unwind after a long day or when I want something warm to drink and coffee feels too heavy. The smell that permeates throughout my kitchen when the boiling water hits the tea bag is just as relaxing and enjoyable as drin...

    Holiday Memories

    Throughout our lives, we have many moments that make us laugh, cry or shoot chocolate milk out our nose. OK, maybe not the milk part, but we all have memories that will stick with us forever and the holidays seem to bring out these memories the most.

    Holiday Memories

    Written By Mary Beth Tice

    I love the holidays. I am one of those crazy people who has to decorate every room in the house with snowmen, Santas, lights & trees; I bake a ton of cookies as gifts and drink way too many Eggnog Spice Lattes from Port City Java. So needless to say I have a lot memories that make me sm...

    Home Color Trends for Fall 2011

    Written By Mary Beth Tice

    It’s official. I’m moving out of my parents’ house and into my own apartment (again). The first time I moved out, I was young, naïve and not quite 20. And my personal style reflected it. Now at 27, I am ready for something a bit more grown up and less college dorm meets garage sale. So in finding my new paint colors, I did what any web-savvy girl woul...

    Condominium Market Update

    Written By Mary Beth Tice

     

    On October 10, 2011, I shared with everyone the average sold data for stick built, single family homes in New Hanover County. Surprisingly some of the feedback I received was “What about condos and townhouses? Don’t you have information on them?” And the answer is yes, of course I do! I simply fell into that mindset of everyone only wants to know what st...
