Monday Coffee - Happy Prayerful Memorial Day

Wilmington, NC - Buddy Blake 

Happy Monday morning to you and your family, and a big Happy Memorial Day. We just want to honor all those who have fallen for our country. it makes me think of a Bible verse in the New Testament,  John 15:13. "Greater love has no one than this, to lay down one's life for one's friends." So I just want to thank all those service members, and all those families of the service members, who have put down their lives for our country over the years, and who will continue to do so, and the ones still out there doing it. I wish you and your family a great week and Memorial Day. Safe Memorial Day.

Below is some information we have put together recently, some blog posts I thought might be helpful. One of them that is a bit relative to this is our Homes for Heroes program. That is a wonderful program, if you fit the criteria, it's for veterans, first responders, active duty, law enforcement, healthcare workers, teachers, clergy, etc. But I just wanted to say, from our family to you, Happy Memorial Day, and may we all keep those families who have lost and who have people on the front line still in our hearts and our prayers. Thank you so much. Have a great week ahead.

Here's an example: a recent beach house transaction will result in a $ 6,800 check for the homeowner. They are unaware of this, as we just received the check from Homes for Heroes. I will pass it on to the agent who worked with them as a token of appreciation for their hard work.

Primary Home Tax Exemptions - Could It Go Away?

Creating Affordable NEW HOME Opportunities

I'm here with my photographer, Erin Blake. We’ve been working on this property for a while, and it's the last home site we could find in the beautiful area of Castle Hayne. The neighborhood is lovely, with no HOA rules or extra fees, and there's even a cornfield at the end of the street.

We just installed the gravel driveway and had to position the home sideways due to county setback regulations, which allowed us to place a larger home on the site. This brand-new home features three bedrooms and two bathrooms and spans nearly 1,500 square feet with a permanent foundation. It qualifies for FHA and VA loans.

Although it's a bit dark inside since the Certificate of Occupancy (CO) is expected next week, we've already taken care of the well and septic system. The property boasts a nice front yard, a permanent foundation, and a spacious backyard backing up to a wooded area. A 4-inch submersible well provides excellent water pressure, perfect if you want to install an irrigation system.

Inside, we’ve just installed new blinds and flooring. The open living area is ideal for dining and entertaining, with a kitchen island and plenty of space. The laundry room is ready for a full-sized washer and dryer and offers ample storage. The home follows a split floor plan with the primary bedroom on one side and two additional bedrooms on the other. The primary bedroom is large, with a spacious walk-in closet and a well-appointed bathroom suite.

Erin and I have been focusing on finding home sites to bring in affordable homes, and this property, built by Champion Homes, stands out for its quality. It's perfect for first-time buyers, retirees, or anyone looking for a great investment.

We wanted to share this sneak peek with you before it hits the market because we know it will go quickly. Stay tuned for more updates!
