Companies that will buy your home. I’m sure many of you have seen the ads for companies that will buy your home. They will if you’re willing to leave between 10%-12% of your equity on the table and even higher sometimes. So if you’re selling a $300,000 home in the Triangle, in a hot market where sellers aren’t really affected with too many repair issues and very short time on market then one of these schemes would cost roughly $30,000 in equity, measure this against $18,000 in commission and that’s $12,000 extra dollars coming out of your pocket.

The likelihood of an increase in the Triangle Region is good, however it should be nominal if past history is an indicator. Yes, your home ‘value’ may be up but the counties have historically reacted to this increase in ‘values’ by decreasing the tax rate. The rub here? The counties in North Carolina have until mid-year to set their rates. So now…we wait.
