A Wealth of Tools at Your Fingertips

TateToolsBuying and selling a home isn’t only about location; it’s also about awareness. You may have an ideal property in a prime location, but buyers need to know about it, including where it is and how fabulous it looks on the inside and out. If you’re the one looking to buy, you want to know immediately when a suitable property comes on the market.

Enter allentate.com, the Carolinas’ No. 1 real estate website. Here, you’ll find a wealth of tools for connecting people with the right property. The site even offers home tours, all from the comfort of one’s chair.

Some of the great services available on allentate.com:

Community Profile links area attributes and local schools to a property, providing buyers with neighborhood-specific data including cost of living, population, housing inventory and local test scores.

Tate Tour gives buyers an easy-to-view slideshow presentation with up to 21 photographs. A virtual tour also offers instant exposure to interior and exterior views of a home.

It’s That Time of Year

Carolina PanthersIn 33 American cities, the pride, the anticipation and the buzz is on. NFL football will soon be back! It’s that magical time when each city believes that this could be “the year” for a playoff run. All the camps are in full swing, and the pre-season games begin this week. While the temperatures (and afternoon rainstorms) still tell us it is summer, there’s not a fan out there who would debate that it is officially football season.

The excitement here in the Carolinas is no different; this year, we wonder if our new general manager filled the holes in the off-season. Reality, however, tells us that every win counts in the league, as well as every unexpected injury. Bench strength and a commitment to playing each and every game like it counts is the only way a playoff run can happen. Health, talent, teamwork, coaching, and yes, luck and schedule strength, all have to align. The schedule strength seems to gain in importance with each new season. And when you win, the next year’s schedule is adjusted to reflect that improvement, further creating parity within the division.

New Features Available on TateMobile

TateMobileWherever you’re reading this, look around. There’s a pretty good chance that there’s someone using a smartphone, tablet or other mobile device.

Most of us (self included) are guilty of being tethered to a mobile device. And today’s home buyers are no exception. According to a recent Google survey, mobile apps are used by 68 percent of all new home shoppers; and 20 percent of all real estate searches happen on a mobile device.

Interestingly, while buyers like to search for homes while they are at work, waiting in line, at a restaurant or at someone else’s home, 77 percent of home shoppers say they are using their mobile device to search for homes – at home.

But we’re OK with that. There’s no wrong place to search for a home.
