It’s that time of year again! It’s time for all good patriots to fire up the barbeque, throw some burgers, chicken, and brats on the grill, and start blowing stuff up. It’s what the Founding Fathers would have wanted.
Back in 2007, homebuyers would beg to purchase your house. They would even bid more than the asking price for the privilege to do so.
Today ... well, not so much. Once the real estate bubble burst and foreclosures poisoned the housing pool, buyers suddenly regained the upper hand. But instead of buying, they're waiting, convinced that housing prices will continue to drop.

"A Charlotte fabric store is making a name for itself turning furniture factory leftovers into eclectic do-it-yourself projects.
Modern Fabrics – started by James and Ewa Powell in January 2007 – has found its niche salvaging new fabric otherwise headed for the landfill and offering it to the public through their online store and South End shop.
James said the store does two things: It keeps thousands of pounds of fabric out of the waste stream and offers it at a discount to people who may not otherwise have access.
The Powells work with a dozen furniture factories around the state that use designer textiles that James said are typically only available to professional designers “at exorbitant prices.”
The Powells said they’ve been surprised by the number of people looking to tackle their own projects. “We thought we’d have a lot of professionals shop here, but they’re only 8 to 9 percent of our revenue. So 90 percent is soccer mom-DIY projects, and it should be,” James said.
"The Charlotte Challenge urban adventure race is returning to the Queen City for our fourth season on Sunday, August 25th!

Think of it like a 5K that tests your brains as much as your legs, with bigger prizes and a whole lot more fun--we guarantee you’ll have a blast!"
