At our office each day, we receive a lot of phone calls about our listings and if they can schedule a time to view the home. We first question is always "Have you already been pre-qualified with a lender?". It is reasonable to think you would begin your home search with a real estate agent, but how are you going to pay for the home?
The saying should go "It takes a village to buy a home". Buying a home requires a team of people to assist you! A Realtor, a lender, an attorney, home inspector, and many more!

The decision to demolish the Washington Duke stemmed from the overwhelming amount of expensive repairs needed. While it is unfortunate, it’s wonderful to see new history being made!
The 125-room 21c hotel is set to set in early 2015. It will also be home to a 10,500 square foot museum and include a lounge and restaurant.
On a interesting side note, let’s connect some Durham Dots. John Adams Buchanan organized the company that built and operated the Washington Duke Hotel. His fabulous home at the time was 1810 Cedar St. in the beautiful Forest Hills neighborhood. Does that address ring a bell? It’s none other than the former home of Michael Peterson. And if you don’t know that name, do a quick Google quick. His wife was found dead at the bottom of the back staircase of the home in 2001, and Michael was accused and found guilty. Peterson served 8 years, but was recently granted a retrial.
Oh, the Durham drama!
