Today I’m excited to be able to show you my latest appearance on “Your Carolina With Jack and Megan.” This time, I brought along a few trivia questions for the hosts. Do you think you know your trivia better than they do? Read on to test your knowledge.

My first question was “How much did billionaire Warren Buffett pay for the home he currently lives in?” Jack guessed $14 million. Megan guessed $175,000. Can you guess who was closer?

It was Megan. The answer is $31,500. Warren Buffett has lived in the same home in Omaha, Nebraska since 1958.

My second question was “In Scotland, it is traditional for homeowners to paint their door red when?” The answer? When they pay off their mortgage.

The best month and week to sell a
home is the first week in May.

My third question was attributing which famous person said this quote: “Real estate is the best investment in the world because it is the only thing they are not making anymore!” Jack and Megan both guessed President Trump, but it was actually Will Rogers.

My fourth question was a true or false question: “In New York it is a legal requirement for a home seller to disclose if they believe their home is haunted.” They both guessed true...and they were right. In South Carolina, however, this law doesn’t apply.

My fifth and final question is a little more relevant if you’re an active buyer or seller: “Statistically, what month and week is the optimal time to sell a home?”

Jack guessed the weekend of April 3rd, and Megan guessed Easter weekend. They were both close, but the answer is actually the first week of May. According to Zillow, homes listed in the first week of May sold on average 18 days faster and for 1% more money. May has come and gone, but the market is still on fire and if you haven't listed your home yet, you should.

If you have any questions about the buying or selling process, please don’t hesitate to give me a call or shoot me an email. I’d be happy to help you.
