About Me

In 2007, after I left my career as COO of a $180M Atlanta-based high-end appliance distributor, I took time to consult on projects that utilized my career knowledge and skills. During this time, I bought, turned around, and sold several businesses, including the Esmeralda Inn & Restaurant in Chimney Rock, NC. That journey brought my wife and I to Western North Carolina, where we currently live in Bat Cave. Our home keeps true to our beliefs, representing the preservation we believe in.

After selling the Esmeralda Inn, I spent six months in 2014 working with local tradespeople to renovate their 1920s Bat Cave home.

Is there a best time of the year to buy a house?

When it comes to buying a home, there are pros and cons for each season. Generally, the best season to buy a home is in late summer or fall. There are still plenty of homes for sale, but without the intense competition found during spring. Sellers are also known for being a bit more flexible this time of the year. Zillow reports that the highest number of listings with at least one price reduction are found August–September. However, the deeper buyers venture into fall, the less choice is available. If you value choice, and you want more buyers competing for the home you are leaving, spring could be your best season. Ultimately, the best time to buy a home is when you’re financially ready to do so.
