Murphy NC Township Seeks to Annex New Area

The town of Murphy, North Carolina is seeking to annex 34 additional acres. According to the Cherokee Sentinel Newspaper, it makes the “perfect annexation.”
 
It is proposing to bring in the property that includes the Lowes Home Center, Sonic restaurant, the BP station (which by the way, is closed), and some public land belonging to Cherokee County and the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA).
 
According to reported figures, the town expects to gain about $38,753 annually as a result of the new territory. There will be another public hearing on September 13th at 5pm at the city hall. It could become finalized as early as the end of the year.

Real Estate For Sale Magazines in Murphy

We’ve got our first cover! We’re quite excited about having the cover of Southern Home Market magazine. I personally did the layout to ensure its going to be a great issue. It’s a great prowl front chalet home that is great! I look forward to posting the image of the cover when it comes out.

I’ll use this opportunity to explain the difference between many of the magazines in our area. We have currently two real estate magazines in the Murphy NC area: Southern Home Market and Homes for Sale in the Mountains. Homes and Land will also be reintroduced to our area. I’ll be advertising a full page in their first issue to test their effectiveness.

Homes for Sale in the Mountains is a larger, more expensive magazine. I advertised in it for 2006 and sold only one house from it. Sellers – it’s gone. It doesn’t bring enough focus to your property to keep it. Not only that, it’s much larger and I feel that because of that, your property gets “lost” in all the others. It has too many strikes against it to be an effective advertising strategy for your house or land.

Southern Home Market is the current real estate magazine I advertise. They are far more flexible, less expensive, get more calls, and is not so large to where your property is lost. Because of the increased interest in your property, it has been the hands down best choice.

Even though print exposure is important, it’s far from the most important thing. Want to learn more about what to do for your home in Murphy, North Carolina to make it more appealing to a buyer? Email or call us and we’ll be happy to share our marketing plan.

Where You Can Expect Your Best Return on Investment in Murphy NC Mountain Real Estate

I’ve been working with a couple today who first called me on Lake Homes and Lots then did a total switch up on me. We ended up looking at homes with a great mountain view, and they now have two choices they really like. One in Hibberts Mountain and the other in Indian Rock Springs.

Anyway, I digress before I even get started. In speaking with them, it brought me to a great point which I have been relaying to my customers for some time. There are three types of properties in Murphy that have an exceptional appreciation rate and do well historically. The three types are: 1) Lakefront 2) Mountain View 3) Water front – i.e. creek, branch, and river frontage.

Lakefront – As with many markets all over the U.S., it’s a great investment and property you can enjoy simply by being on the water. Here in our area, there’s several differently lakes to enjoy. Lake Hiwassee (you’ll see some misspellings, Hiawassee is a common one), Appalachia, Lake Chatuge, Blue Ridge, Nottley, Nantahala, and Santeelah are some of the the lakes people enjoy here in the North Carolina Mountains. I’ll go more in depth on some of these in a later blog.

Mountain View – Just like the quality of anything you can buy, mountain views vary. You could have a little glimpse of a mountain or one where someone else’s trees could grow and block your view. The best views are generally considered multiple layers of mountains where you control the views – in other words, you can cut trees or whatever is in your way because you own the property in front of you where the trees could grow up. Close up mountains are also great, depending on the ridge line and other factors.

Water Front – Think varying ranges of moving water here. A "branch" is the smallest, usually considered to be 4-6 inches at most. Over 4-6" would be considered a creek and can get several feet wide. Rivers are, well, rivers. In Murphy, we have three main rivers: Hiwassee, Nottley, and Valley. All of which are beautiful and quite clean and clear water.

These are great investments for the long term and in some cases, the short term. It’s quite common to see double digit returns on these properties (annually). If you love the water or mountain views, fear not! Your purchase today can lead to a lifetime of enjoyment, or at the least, a better return on your money than you can find in any CD.
