Incentives Do Work | GE to Expand in NC | Aviation in Wilmington/Castle Hayne

Wilmington / Castle Hayne NC

In May the New Hanover county commissioners agreed on a 875,000 incentive plan to General Electric Aviation, Castle Hayne site on a planned investment of 63 million dollars. There will be additional jobs added, but the bulk of the investment is to purchase new progressive technology.  Very good news for our area.  The planned investments will include a new manufacturing center in Ashville NC.  The announcements were made at the Paris Air Show this week.  Orders for LEAP, CF34 and GEnx-1B engines were announced as well.  There is a global demand for these engines, prompting GE to invest in the NC plants.

FSBO CONTRACT: Who’s Offering What, When And How For Your Home?

The exciting moment when an offer to purchase your home comes in can also feel a little overwhelming. One common first impulse is to ask “How much are they offering?” While price is an important factor, it’s also important to sit back and look at the big picture when negotiating a sale. Consider the following:

Buyer’s Financial Situation

Is the buyer qualified?
What is the buyer’s annual income and employment history?
How much down payment and closing-cost cash is available and what is its source?
What type of financial debt is there? Car loans? Credit cards?

Financing Method

Are the loan type and interest rate specifications realistic for current economic conditions?
Is the length of time requested to obtain a loan realistic? Forty-five days is often considered a typical time frame. It allows enough time to process papers, but also allows you to put the home back on the market promptly if things fall through.

Your Costs

How much does the buyer want you to contribute toward closing costs?
What will your net proceeds be? Add up any points, taxes or fix-up expenses requested and deduct them from the contract price to determine if your final profit is what you need to make your move.

Your Calendar

Does the buyer’s proposed settlement date give you enough time to select your next home and obtain financing?
If you can’t move to your next home promptly at settlement, can you rent back from the buyer to stay in your home a while longer?

Contingencies

Must the buyer sell a home before buying yours? You may not have the time to wait while they sell.
What add-ons does the buyer want? Curtains, lawn equipment, swing sets? All of this can affect your final net proceeds, or be used as bargaining chips, or both.We’re here to help. We’ve been through the contract negotiation process countless times. We can help you cut to the chase and come up with a mutually acceptable contract.
