This is Lynnsy Logue, The Real Estate Lady, signing on from Charlotte, North Carolina most recently touted as one of the re-silient real estate markets and with good reason. Charlotte is a jewel. How do I know? Well, I've lived here for over fifty years and worked in the market for decades. Good things are happening here.For example, we have good news and more good news. I have been working with a retiree who bought a ranch style townhome almost ten years ago. Key note there is almost. And we recently sold it. The inspections showed a crack in the foundation. She knew the date she signed all of her closing papers and had her builder's warranty in hand.I made the call to the warranty department for the builder and followed my call with an email so I would have written documentation.
A local builder, they wrote the work order immediately, scheduled a crew to inspect the work. The crew chief called me yesterday to say he was on site and if I wanted to come, they would be there at 2:30. They did a complete inspection, even pulled back the carpeting to see how far the crack might have gone, scheduled soil testing and another crew to begin the repair work.I have worked with this company before and they are as good as their word. They do excellent follow-up and passing the buck is not their style. How fabulous is this, a builder who stands behind their work even ten years later.
While Charlotte is growing and new people and companies come every day ... some are good and some are not so good. Today it's a good real estate news story.
Thanks for joining us. Lynnsy Logue, The Real Estate Lady, Charlotte. NC
