Not every task should be a DIY…. Why working with a REALTORS to buy or sell your home is the right decision.


In today’s high tech world, it seems every type of information is available at your fingertips, including home listings, property tax information and neighborhood details.  So with all of that information out there, why do you need a REALTOR? 

Whether you are selling or buying, working with a REALTOR gives you a professional on your side, helping make sure your interests are protected in every aspect of the deal.  Just as you wouldn’t diagnose and treat yourself for an illness despite all the options outlined on the internet, you shouldn’t manage your home search or sale based on what you’ve learned on a few websites.  You need a REALTOR. 


A home sale or purchase is one of the largest financial transactions in most individuals lives and it comes with an often overwhelming amount of information.  REALTORS provide a partner to help you digest all of the information and their expertise and experience help to guide you in the buying & selling process.  Every North Carolina Realtor has been trained in the details of real estate contracts so that we can help you understand each detail of your offer to purchase or listing agreement, taking the confusion out of the complex legal documents involved.  In addition, REALTORS are trained in negotiation strategies and tactics and their assistance has been shown to net sellers more money for their home than listing as a For Sale By Owner (FSBO) per the National Association of Relators 2017 annual survey.   Real estate professionals can also help you understand the findings of inspectors and often recommend contractors who can assist in addressing any issues to make sure all areas of concern are addressed prior to closing a deal.  Realtors have access to a wealth of information and tools on available and “coming soon” listings as well as many other details on rental history, neighborhood comparables, school districts and tax information to give you the most comprehensive market perspective.


In summary, REALTORS are trained to be your partner throughout a selling or buying motion and provide invaluable resources, experience and data to make sure your real estate transaction goes smoothly and provides the best possible result for you and your family.  When thinking of buying or selling your next home, be sure to contact our REALTORS at Outer Banks Realty Solutions and let us partner with you as you begin your next real estate chapter.

Blue Water Grill Restaurant is now open 7 days a week!

After a year of waiting and anticipating, Outer Banks food enthusiasts can at last celebrate as the Blue Water Grill & Raw Bar has opened its doors.
The restaurant, with its commanding presence atop the Pirates Cove Marina, is the latest venture from Scott and Melissa Shields, who brought the popular Blue Moon Beach Grill to Nags Head six years ago.
And the space is impressive. Planked decking and teak motifs evoke a subtle nautical theme that is picked up by flying beams and suspended lighted fans. The bar and dining room sections are defined by a long partial wall running almost the length of the room and bending gracefully at either end.
Come in and enjoy the fine dining this new restaurant has to offer.

More details can be found on their Facebook Page Blue Water Grill



Homebuyer Flood Insurance Relief

April 16, 2014

On April 15, 2014, FEMA issued a WYO Company Bulletin implementing the first provisions of the Flood Insurance Affordability Act and providing immediate rate relief to homebuyers. In the bulletin, FEMA directs insurance companies to stop charging full-risk premium rates when older properties are sold after May 1. Instead, buyers will be allowed to assume the seller’s current rate until FEMA issues new rate tables and refunds under the new law. NAR will continue pressing FEMA to implement the rest of the rate relief provisions according to the statutory deadlines.


Purchasing a Manufactured Home Process

Not too often are manufactured homes purchased due to inexperienced Listing Agents, Buyer Agents and Loan Originators.  I would like to share with you the process of purchasing a manufactured home.

Most lenders will not finance a manufactured home through FHA if it is more then 20 years old, below flood plain or not have a permenant foundation.

The first step when listing a manufactured home is the listing agent should obtain the Title Policy.  If a Title Policy can not be found, then the seller should go to the Department of Motor Vehicles and obtain one.  He/She should also find the Vehicle Identification Number Tag.  This number may be located in a closet of the manufactured home.  

If the manufactured home is located in a flood zone, an elevation certificate will be required.  The elevation is from the grade, (dirt) not the bottom of the first floor like stick built home requirements.  Also, the manufactured home must be above flood plain in order to qualify for FHA.  

The lender will also require that the manufactured home have a permenant foundation.  This means it can not have the wheels.   This certification can be obtained through a structural engineer.

If your manufactured home is more then 20 years old a lender will lend with 20% down and most likely keep the financing in-house.
