MOORE COUNTY HOME BUILDERS ASSOCIATION

By Bob Van Houten Moore County Home Builders Association President

The "Home Team" of Subcontractors

The days when individuals build houses by themselves have long since passed. Building a house is now a team effort. General contractors hire skilled subcontractors who specialize in the various phases of construction. Part of the job of the general contractor is to develop a schedule for building a house so that each subcontractor specialist is there to perform each given

task at the right time. Who are some of the players? First, someone has to excavate the lot, digging a hole for the foundation. Next, a subcontractor has to pour the footings, on which the house will rest. A subcontractor will then place the foundation on top of the footings. Once the foundation is in place, a new group of subcontractors comes to the site. Some-

Once again, these tasks must be (HVAC) schedsystem. uled in the As houses correct order. have become Subcontractors larger and more also work on the complex, many of outside of the these trades rehouse.

one has to frame the house, which is the skeleton that provides the support for the interior and exterior walls, the flooring and the roof. A siding contractor is needed to install the exterior siding material. A roofing subcontractor needs to apply the shingles or other roofing material. Someone needs to install the windows and doors to finish closing up the house. When the house is closed up, there is still a lot of interior work to be done. A electrical subcontractor needs to install all of the necessary wiring. A plumbing subcontractor installs the pipes for the water system. And a specialist needs to install the heating, air condi-

may also perform some of the tasks. This large team of different tradespeople who participate in the construction of new homes is good news for local economies. All of these subcontractors are earning wages, paying taxes, and spending money in their communities. The money is spread out rather than concentrated and can create an economic ripple effect. That's a good reason to want to see new houses built in your community and to support your local "home team."

THE SEASON FOR GIVING BACK

This week's edition of the radio show, All Things Moore County, on WEEB 990 AM, features special guests from our community who are committed to giving back to others in Moore County. Organized by Ken Rahal, host Bill Sahadi's guests are as follows:

in Real Estate Keep us involved

Send us your event photos to share with the community. Submit digital photos accompanied by caption information to mechelle@thepilot.com.

Marsae Stone of the Northern Moore Family Resource Center is also on hand to talk about the very good & important work her organization does for the youth in Robbins and North Moore County including the Robbins Childrens Christmas Gift Drive, the warm blanket project and the after school program to support children in their education. The Northern Moore Family Resource Center is located at P.O. Box 190, Robbins, N.C. 27325 and donations can be sent to this address.

Life coach, Veronica Karaman, talks about a special event she is planning on Dec. 2nd at Penick Village, from 1:00 - 6:00 p.m., "Creating Shots of Joy Workshop". Her workshop is an effort to offer people a chance to leap over the emotional landminds of dealing with holiday stress or family member stress.

Bill Smith of Bill Smith Ford talks about this years edition of Project Santa to help supply bicycles to needy children in Moore County. Project Santa was the dream of Earl Wright. Earl's time, resources & energy have lifted Project Santa into one of the most meaningful Christmas morning events in Moore County. The bikes are distributed on Christmas morning. The most needed bikes are those for the small children, and time is of the essence to get them donated in time so that the conditioning and repairs can be made in time for Christmas.

Bob Klug of Pinehurst Area Realty & Exec. Director of The First Tee of the Sandhills, Bill Baker, share the great success of last week's fundraiser, Bucket List, for the First Tee of the Sandhills. This mentoring program, which uses golf as a 'hook', is a great mentoring program for our County's youth that instills discipline, confidence and self esteem in our growing children of many ages.

Moore County is a giving community of unusual proportions 12 months a year, but at this time of the year it truly is a season for giving back. The show airs this Saturday at 10:05 a.m. and again on Sunday evening at 8:05 p.m. A podcast of the show will be available at www.foreproperties.com/radio.


Best Wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving!

MOORE INFORMATION

$149,000

The Market

The figures are in for October and the numbers continue to be most encouraging. The number of closed sales is up 12% over last October in all categories of properties; and up 27% in residential units closed. Other indices are also positive; the average list to sell ratio has improved about 3% per our mls data, and the average sale price of a residential home is up by 7%. Are we looking for more improvement? You bet! But we are encouraged by these market changes. A note to our clients - to make these sales happen we’re doing a lot more negotiating these days to put the deals together. Interest Rates: Rates have never been better with 15 year fixed rates at 2.87%. Example: On a 30 year fixed rate loan at 3.5% the monthly payment per hundred thousand is $449.04 not including taxes and insurance. There are still loan products out there for less than 20% down – even 100% mortgages. Jumbo loans are also available for the big homes. Remember your credit score is important to qualify for the great rates. Rates will never be better. This is a great opportunity for all, but especially for young people as they buy their first home. And, the inventory is good.
