Chris Tilley – Cunningham & Company

One of our agents recently paired a client with Chris Tilley, our partner from Cunningham & Company Mortgage Bankers, to cover financing for the recent purchase of their home. Our agent, Curt Seifart, Jr., and his clients were thrilled with the service they received from Chris and his team and shared the following testimonial with us:

 

My buyers just closed on a new home that wouldn’t have happened if Chris Tilley and his expert staff hadn’t “lent” a hand! Specifically, these buyers came to me already connected to another mortgage lender, or so they thought! Their experience with the previous lender was miserable to say the least. Sloppy paperwork, lousy service, you name it. All the while time was growing short to close. The buyers asked for a different lender with about three weeks to go. That’s when Chris and company jumped in, and performed so well that after today’s closing they told me (for the third or fourth time) they plan on referring Chris to all their friends.

 

We’re proud to partner with such a professional and well-managed mortgage brokerage that shares our desire to provide clients with the best in customer service! We look forward to our continued partnership with Chris and Cunningham & Company. Thank you for all that you do to help our agents and their clients throughout the year!

Sometimes it’s hard to identify exactly what your design style is, especially in a world with styles that include phrases like “vintage retro glam” or “counrty shabby chic.” Sometimes we feel like we struggle just to identify all the different styles you can label your decor as opposed to focusing on the decor itself. That being said, everyone does have a design style, whether there is a name for it or not and designer Erin Gates, author of Elements of Style, a home decor blog and her new book, Elements of Style; Building a Home and a Life, recently did a Q&A with The Charlotte Business Journal about some of the best ways to identify your style, and some of her tips might surprise you. For example, she says when trying to define your personal style, you should start with…. your closet! Gates says your closet can help you identify a lot about your style from colors and patterns to an overall feel (fun vs. formal, etc). So after a trip through the wardrobe, what’s next? Pinterest, of course. It doesn’t have to be pinterest, but it is a great place to create visual idea boards and as you start to pin more and more things, Gates says you will being to see patterns in your choices that will hopefully help you make design decisions in the long run. Her other tips? Consider your lifestyle and your habits as you’r decorating and make sure the space works for you. To add character, she says to throw in some vintage pieces or faimly hand-me-downs to make the space look lived in and loved. Want more tips on how to spice up your space and bring in your own design style? Check out the full article here, Follow Erin’s Blog, or head over to Pinterest to get started styling your spaces! Decorating is a great way to express yourself and you can have so much fun with it, so get to work!

The 2014 numbers are in just in time for an annual review. Looking forward, 2015 offers much promise. Watch for price movement to come in line with historical norms, seller activity and inventory levels to increase, housing starts to gain momentum and for rates to remain attractive. For the 12-month period spanning January 2014 through December 2014, Pending Sales in the Charlotte region were up 7.3 percent overall. The price range with the largest gain in sales was the $300,001 and Above range, where they increased 13.1 percent.

 

The overall Median Sales Price was up 4.5 percent to $180,000. The property type with the largest price gain was the Single-Family segment, where prices increased 5.5 percent to $189,368. The price range that tended to sell the quickest was the $150,001 to $200,000 range at 73 days; the price range that tended to sell the slowest was the $100,000 and Below range at 94 days.

 

Market-wide, inventory levels were down 14.2 percent. The property type that lost the least inventory was the Single-Family segment, where it decreased 13.9 percent. That amounts to 4.3 months supply for Single-Family homes and 3.1 months supply for Condos. (Reprinted from CRRA Monthly Indicators, December 2014)
