North Carolina Is Now Ranked The 8th Most Moved-To State In America

Moving is a common life experience. In fact, every day, thousands of people are moving to a new home all over the country. There are many reasons why people move. Some have to do with finances and job relocation, others with personal relationships and changes to the family unit.

Just recently, United Van Lines released the results of their annual study which tracks customers’ state-to-state migration patterns over the past year. United Van Lines is a full-service American moving and relocation company. They help tens of thousands of families move all of their belongings each year.

According to  United Van Lines’ 2017 National Study, North Carolina officially ranked as the #8 most moved-to state in America for 2017.

So why are people moving? And where are they going?
Here’s what they have to say:

“This year’s data reflects longer-term trends of movement to the western and southern states, especially to those where housing costs are relatively lower, climates are more temperate and job growth has been at or above the national average, among other factors,” said Michael Stoll, economist and professor in the Department of Public Policy at the University of California, Los Angeles. “We’re also seeing continued migration to the Pacific Northwest and Mountain West as young professionals and retirees leave California.”

Do I Need A Home Inspection?

Is a home inspection needed?

Protect your interest

When you buy a Charlotte NC home, you buy its amazing features and great location. You also buy its flaws. Not all homes are perfect. Even some new construction homes have minor flaws.

Your home is a big investment, and you want to make sure it is in good condition when you buy it.  It is your right to know the weaknesses of the home you are going to purchase, and the home inspection allows you to learn that.

Many buyers feel that the home inspection is something they can do themselves because it seems easy to check the condition of the home and find out if the electrical or heating systems are working.  While it’s true that a home inspection only covers and inspect things that are visible, there are many things you don’t check when buying a home.

For example, one of the reasons you love the living room is for its stone-lined fireplace. Have you checked if it is safe? Did you check the wiring of the home? How about the plumbing?  All these things are covered in the home inspection.

Top 3 benefits of a home inspection

  1. It saves you money. Home inspections cost $300 – $400 depending on the size of the home. It is a small amount to pay compared to your possible expense a couple of years later when you have to rewire your entire home, or when you need to have your foundation repaired.
  1. It allows you to negotiate for a lower price. When the home you like is still at the upper end of your budget price range, a home inspection may give you the means to negotiate the price to your favor.
  1. It gives you a good deal. Not only does a home inspection allow you to ask for a lower price, it also gives you the power to request needed repairs. Some sellers are willing to deduct the amount of repair from the listing price.

What’s included in a home inspection?

Home inspections start from the top of the house down to the bottom, but it will not cover everything in the Charlotte NC home you are planning to buy. The inspector has a list of different items to look at in the home. These inspectors are trained and certified by the state and are experts in what they do.  The following are some areas covered in an inspection:

  • Structural components including foundation and framework of the house are covered. The inspector will check if the foundation is solid, and if the walls are straight. This is especially helpful if you are buying an older home.
  • The roofing system is composed of the shingles, flashing, fascia and skylight which will be looked at. The inspector will check for defects which may cause drips or loose gutters.
  • Exterior portions of the home will be covered including the siding, porches, and driveways. The inspection will check for cracks, rot or decay in the siding.
  • The plumbing system which includes pipes, drains, and water heater will be inspected to check for deficiencies.
  • Heating and Cooling system and its distribution equipment will be analyzed.
  • Interior features like walls, ceilings, windows, doors, etc will be looked at.
  • Insulation and ventilation will be inspected to see if it was installed properly.
  • Fireplaces which include chimneys and vents will be inspected for problems.
  • Kitchens will be checked from plumbing, to electrical and appliances.
  • Bathrooms will be inspected for venting, leaks and more.

You will be provided with the detailed findings, which you can use as basis for further price negotiation. As a buyer, the home inspection report is your way of checking the investment you’ll be making is sound and will not give you any problems in the near future.

The Top 5 Reasons to Live in North Carolina

Real Estate Properties for Sale in Charlotte NC

If you are looking at homes for sale in North Carolina, there's no better time to move to the State! It's a must-see place where there's always something going on. Those who are new to the area or planning a trip to find out more about what it has to offer, here are the top 5 reasons why North Carolina makes a fun and interesting place for you to live:

1. Discover the multi-purpose value of mason jars. This quirky preference for using a mason jar in place of a tumbler and mug has found its way into North Carolina home décor, so that it remains one of the most-purchased items in the State. A jar can make a trendy and stylish spoon holder, desk accent, or even a centerpiece for flowers or candles.

2. The food. North Carolina is known for the best fried chicken, especially from Bojangles' Famous Chicken ”˜n Biscuits, headquartered in Charlotte. Another favorite is barbecue, found in every city. Among the top contenders are Stamey's Barbecue in Greensboro, B's Barbecue in Greenville, and Skylight Inn BBQ in Ayden as top 10 award winners for 2016.

If you go to Tupelo Honey Café in Charlotte, you'll find that fried green tomatoes is another staple for the State. Donut-lovers will be thankful for Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, founded in 1937 in Winston-Salem, available at their many locations. And, because Cheerwine partnered with Krispy Kreme, you simply must try all their varieties of sodas and floats! Other statewide specialties you don't want to miss out on are Carolina styled foods for their flavors -deviled eggs, seafood, and shrimp and grits.

3. The beach scene along the coast. Nothing beats the warm Carolina sunshine, and all along the North Carolina-Georgia border, you can have your pick of where to go. From Wrightsville Beach, to Nags Head, Carova, or even Corolla, you'll want to keep going back as often as you can.

4. Artsy communities. The creative and liberal arts lovers of all ages will appreciate the mix of entertainment and shops throughout the neighborhoods of Montford in Asheville and NoDa in Charlotte, and in the cities of Durham, Chapel Hill, and Winston-Salem's selection of theatres and galleries.

5. The music. From folk to blues, and some country tunes, North Carolina's diverse music appreciation has paved the way for many notable performing artists such as James Taylor, John Coltrane, Dizzy Gillespie, and Ben Folds Five, to name a few. You can visit the Music Hall of Fame in Kannapolis, or attend live shows at any of North Carolina's best venues all year long.
