Review your Expenditures for better Financial Health

February 9th, 2014 meadowsmtn Posted in Cashiers NC real estate, highlands nc real estate, Highlands/Cashiers NC real estate No Comments »

cashYou’ll need to earn $2.00 for every $1.00 you want to spend assuming you pay 50% of your earnings on income tax, social security and Medicare.  On the other hand, you get to keep 100% of every dollar you save on your personal expenses because the taxes have already been paid.

Periodically, review your expenditures with the diligence of an exuberant IRS agent on commission.  It’s an exercise that most people don’t feel they have time to do but the rewards make it entirely worthwhile.

 

  • Get comparative quotes on insurance – car, home, other 
  • Review and compare utility providers 
  • Review plans on cell phones 
  • Review plans on cable TV, satellite for unused channels and packages or receivers 
  • Review available discounts on property taxes 
  • Consider refinancing home – lower rate, shorter term or cash out to payoff higher rate loans 
  • Consider refinancing cars 
  • Call credit card companies to ask for a lower rate 
  • Review all of the automatic charges on your credit cards – consider no-fee cards 
  • Search for late fees that are regularly being paid and eliminate them. 
  • Review all bank charges for accounts and debit cards; determine if they can be reduced or eliminated.

If you don’t want to review your credit card accounts, consider reporting the cards stolen so that new numbers will be issued.  You can notify the companies that need your number.  Companies who might have your number won’t be able to automatically renew services that you may no longer be using.  You can be assured that they’ll contact you when the old number doesn’t go through and you can re-evaluate the decision at that time.

Cashiers NC REALTOR® More Important Than Ever

April 20th, 2012 meadowsmtn Posted in Cashiers NC real estate Comments Off

Meadows Mountain Real Estate, Cashiers NC real estate

A Cashiers NC REALTOR® is more important than ever when trying to sell your home. Higher inventory levels create a need for planning, marketing, and attention to detail, something an experienced Cashiers REALTOR® can provide. The news on the street is that vacation real estate sales are picking up as is real estate in general, but these improvements are slight and far from dramatic. Selling Cashiers NC real estate involves pricing a home competitively and marketing creatively.

A Cashiers NC REALTOR® can be the difference between selling your home soon or having it languish on the market. We have all heard the term “6 degrees of separation” which in real estate is another term for networking. Much of being a Cashiers REALTOR® involves networking. Take an open house for example. An open house is an opportunity for a REALTOR® to expose your Cashiers NC real estate to other realtors as well as potential buyers. With each REALTOR® that comes into your home comes exposure to every client that particular REALTOR® has access to.

Selling a Cashiers NC property involves much more than a sign in the ground and an ad in the paper. Today’s market has a larger than normal inventory which makes selling quite a bit trickier, and n experienced Cashiers REALTOR® has a marketing plan, an extensive network of clients and other real estate professionals, and a strong web among other things.

Contact us today for a complimentary listing presentation and let us help you get to know our current market conditions and what we can do to help your achieve success with your Cashiers NC real estate transaction!

Meadows Mountain Realty and Signature Properties

February 18th, 2012 meadowsmtn Posted in Cashiers NC, Cashiers NC real estate, Highlands NC, highlands nc real estate, Uncategorized Comments Off

On December 30th, 2011 Signature Properties integrated into a Meadows Mountain Realty branch office and is operating under the Meadows banner.   

The owner of Meadows Mountain Realty, Judy Michaud, and the previous owner of Signature Properties, Lynn Kimball, have a long & successful history together.  They both moved to Highlands in the mid 1980’s and worked under Johnny White, Director of Sales, known at the time as ”Highlands Falls Realty”.  This team sold out Highlands Falls Country Club and in 1996 Lynn purchased the real estate firm from the developer of Highlands Falls.    She expanded the company into the general real estate business under the name of Signature Properties.   After 22 years as a Broker at Signature Properties, Judy had the opportunity to purchase another local real estate brokerage firm Meadows Mountain Realty.    She said “Although I loved working with Lynn and Johnny at Signature Properties, I saw this as an opportunity to build a legacy for my family.   I am blessed to have a great group of brokers and staff plus I get to work with my two daughters, Michelle Michaud Muraco and Patricia Michaud Cox, both of whom play a significant role in the success of our company.”     Lynn fully supported Judy in her endeavor and they have always remained close friends.

Their simple explanation for this move is that “although we were unique apart and we are powerful together.”   Kimball and Michaud both said, “It is truly a blessing for us to be working together again.” 

Judy plans to combine the best of what both firms have to offer into one dynamic real estate firm.   They both noted, “This is a new day in the real estate industry and technology is essential in marketing property”.  If you check it out on the internet, Meadows’ presence speaks for itself.   In 2011, Meadows Mountain Realty far exceeded the number of sales of any other real estate firm in Highlands.

Meadows Mountain Realty will now have two locations.   The original Signature Properties location across from Highlands Falls Country Club has become a Meadows office.   Lynn will remain as Broker-in-Charge and under Meadows Mountain Realty will have more time to do what she does best, list and sell real estate and assist the  team of brokers at the Highlands Falls location in doing the same.  Meadows will maintain their current office in Downtown Highlands.  However, in April they will move their Downtown location to Church Street, in the Old Edwards Inn complex.
