HPW Open Houses September 29-30Haven't found your dream home yet? This could be the weekend. 

Our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate agents have listed fantastic homes in cities and suburbs all over the Triangle region. From Alamance County in the West all the way to Wayne County in the East, we have the homes you seek.

Take advantage of the weekend ahead to plan visits to our agents' area open houses. You're going to want to see the homes you've been eyeing online up close to get a better idea of what they hold.

 Plan to set aside a chunk of time at each house so that you may tour it inside and out at your own pace (twice if you like) and then take a drive around the neighborhood and community. Knowledge is the name of the real estate game, and you're going to want to gather as much information as possible to decide if you will make an offer.

HPW Open Houses Sept 22-23Home. It's a word that carries a deep emotional connection. It's where you create memories, lay your head at night and spend time with your loved ones. Hurricane Florence has devastated the eastern part of the state leaving many without a home. Some homes are so damaged they aren't safe enough to live in. Some homes are submerged in water leaving only the roof visible. Some people remain unable to even get home to see if their house is still standing due to flooded roads.

This weekend, our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate agents will be hosting open houses across Central NC. We invite you to not only visit our open houses this weekend, but we ask that if you have any items you'd like to donate to those impacted by Hurricane Florence, bring those along. We will be taking a convoy of trucks to eastern NC next week to deliver much-needed supplies. Below is a list of items being requested at this time:

Bottled water

Non-perishable food

Pop-top canned goods

Diapers

Flashlights

Batteries

Cleaning Supplies

Personal hygiene products

Adult diapers

Tarps

Rakes

Chainsaw + chainsaw supplies

Shop-Vacs

Fans

Dehumidifiers

Gas Cans

 

We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you all at our area open houses this Saturday and Sunday.

Durham American Tobacco Historic District
In the 1800s, the American Tobacco Company was one of Durham's biggest businesses, with a large factory complex located in the heart of the city. The factory complex, located in downtown Durham, featured a large, diverse group of buildings, all designed to accommodate the thriving business of the American Tobacco Company. Today, that same factory complex – now known as the American Tobacco Historic District – is a destination for dining, entertainment, and special events. It's an excellent example of the attractions in downtown Durham, and our real estate agents are here to tell you all about what to expect from the American Tobacco Historic District.

HPW Open Houses September 8-9Attention home buyers – this is THE weekend for you to find your new home and we're ready to help.

Our in-the-know real estate agents will be hosting open houses this Saturday and Sunday in nearly every corner of this prospering Triangle region and Goldsboro, too. It's time to map out a plan to make the most of this fall weekend. 

Open House Tips For Buyers

It doesn't matter if you're entering the second month of your house hunt or are just getting started, you're going to want to make the most of your open house visits. 

Do Some Digging

Power up your computer or charge up your Smart Phone and start "digging" for information on the homes you plan to visit. Access a home valuation estimate on our HPW.com website to review a comprehensive report with property details, recent area sales, and more useful information for each of the homes you like. 

Take Your Time

Give yourself ample time to tour the homes you visit. Walk through each home with the onsite agent and then go back through on your own. Take time to step into the backyard or stroll down the street. Buying a home is a big deal, and you're going to want to gather every detail possible to make an educated decision. 

Curb Your Enthusiasm

Attending an open house is exciting, especially when you think the home may be perfect for you and your family. Do your best to remain cool, calm, and collected as you take your tour to ensure you see the home as it really is, without the rose-colored lenses.
