Overall, the Experience Was an Enjoyable One

While we were hunting for a house, we decided to work with The Poltrock Team because they were willing to show us properties in which we were interested. Wayne Cofer was great to work with, as he listened to what we wanted and got us the right house.

That is why The Poltrock Team at RE/MAX embraced the Team Model as opposed to inefficiently trying to do everything individually.

When you’re selling real estate, hiring a Team with a Closing Coordinator is a huge advantage. From contract to closing, our Closing Coordinator ensures you have the most seamless closing possible.

5 Reasons to Buy a Log Cabin in Murphy, NC

Log cabins really are an authentic slice of Americana. Whether you’re in a cozy little house tucked into the woods in Murphy, NC, or in a soaring log home in high mountain terrain, log cabins can evoke images of our country’s hardy settlers’ abodes. And log cabins certainly offer a rustic, earthy type of charm while often containing space for a vegetable or flower garden. As an added bonus, these distinctive houses offer five extra advantages that make them worth a serious look when you’re buying a home.

Warmth During the Colder Months
During the colder fall and winter months, you’d like your log cabin in the mountains of Murphy, NC to be toasty warm inside. If the interior walls are warm to the touch, that’s even better. Fortunately, wood’s “thermal mass” enables your log home’s walls to gather and store valuable energy, releasing it back into your home and making chilly walls a thing of the past. The bottom line: your family will stay more comfortable when it counts the most.

Highly Energy Efficient
“Home energy efficiency” has become a much-discussed topic among homebuilders nationwide. In its simplest form, “home energy efficiency” means decreasing unnecessary energy use and lowering the demand for non-renewable resources. Besides providing measurable cost savings over buildings with conventional energy usage, energy-efficient homes ideally provide residents with a healthier living environment.

Not surprisingly, properly built log homes can be highly energy efficient. To achieve this optimum outcome, the wooden home must be properly sealed between the foundation and the first course of logs. Log-to-log connections, and the junction between the roof system and log wall, must also be completely sealed.

So, just how energy efficient is a correctly built log home? Some log and timber homebuilders construct homes that meet the United States Department of Energy’s desirable “Energy Star” standards. In other words, an Energy Star home will be 30 percent more energy efficient than mandated building code requirements. If that’s your log home in Murphy, NC, you’ll reap considerable cost savings over time, giving you more cash to enjoy life with your family.

My Experience with the team was Outstanding

John Poltrock is a Prince! This has been my best Home buying experience ever! I live a solid 13 hour drive away from Murphy and have lost several homes because I could not make it up there fast enough! When this house came on the market, I called John the first day on the market. I told him my story, knowing that people had setup appointments already, I panicked because “This Was My House” John assured me he would not accept any offers until I got up there, I gathered my dog. Filled up the car and headed out for Murphy within the hour. The rest is history, I now own my lovely mountain top home in Murphy. Team Poltrock, did step up to the plate and my experience with them was outstanding.
