Any Home Buyer Truly Can Be a Cash Buyer

What if your real estate agent told you that any home buyer could become a cash buyer?

Sounds too good to be true, right?

Real estate brokers run across situations every day where a buyer doesn't have as much power with a deal that is being financed because of offer contingencies, or they are in competition with multiple offers - a situation that comes up quite often - on the property of their dreams.

If the buyer is a cash buyer, that helps get the job done

KBT Realty is promoting a new tool that makes it possible for pre-approved buyers to become cash buyers. This tool works in a wide variety of real estate buying and selling scenarios.

A buyer might own a house in Kentucky, for example, and they have found a house in the Wilmington NC market that they want to purchase. Or they could have a house in Wilmington that they need to sell in order to be able to buy a different house in the area. That's one situation: a buyer has found a house they want to buy, but they c ...

7 Perfect Christmas Gifts for New Homeowners

Christmas shopping can be a challenge. What to get dad? What would grandma love this year? Which of the twenty items on the kids' Santa lists are the gifts they really, really want?

Expert gift shoppers suggest that you concentrate on hobbies, and think about what a person is interested in, what they really need, and what makes them unique. You can go the "experience" route, and give tickets, a dinner, or a class. You can be direct and just ask.

One of the easiest ways to decide on a Christmas gift that will be especially meaningful is to think about what defines the recipient in this moment. 

If the answer to that question is, "new homeowner," you are in luck, because people who are settling into a new home are especially easy - and fun - to shop for.

The perfect Christmas gifts for new homeowners on this list are all great options.

House Hunting with KBT: What's to Love at 2962 SE Magellan

Tyson Emery, Broker/Realtor, shares what he loves about the listing at 2962 SE Magellan Boulevard in Bolivia, North Carolina. 

Which room do you love the most?

I love the whole thing... the whole house, actually. I think having what is actually three master bedrooms is really cool. There is one on the first floor, and two more huge bedrooms, with en suites, on the second floor.

What is unique about this property?

The biggest thing about this home that makes it unique is the layout. For a family, hands-down, it is one of the best layouts I've ever been in. In this house, you have the ability to grow through a variety of family scenarios. If you have kids, when they go off to school, you still have space downstairs that works for single story living, because of the beautiful first floor master bedroom, and you then have outstanding space upstairs for overnight guests and visiting family.

It's a great home to live in if you have aging par ...

House Hunting with KBT: What's to Love at 422 N Crestwood Dr

Fred Teachey, Broker/Realtor, shares what's to love about 422 North Crestwood Drive, Wilmington, North Carolina. 

Which room do you love the most?

Well, not necessarily a room in the traditional sense, but I personally love the screened-in porch. This is a large screened-in porch overlooking the fenced-in backyard and relaxing swimming pool. In the summer afternoons, this is the place to be.

What is unique about this property?

The two things that make this unique from other homes in the neighborhood is for one the swimming pool. Very few homes in this price range come with an in-ground pool. The other one is the large detached garage. This is big enough for your vehicles or you can make it into the ultimate workshop.

What's not to miss?

The biggest thing is that the owners have kept this home in excellent condition and they have taken pride in keeping this home up to date. The kitchen has been remolded with stainless s ...
