North Carolina, you could be missing out on free money! You can visit NCCash.com to see if and what you are owed. There is over 1.2 billion in the unclaimed property fund and some of that money could already belong to you. You simply need to claim it. The site is secure and free to use and it takes just seconds to check and see what you are owed.

What is Unclaimed Property?

According to the NC Department of Treasury, unclaimed property consists of bank accounts, wages, utility deposits, insurance policy proceeds, stocks, bonds, and contents of safe deposit boxes that typically have been abandoned for one to five years. Funds become unclaimed because the company loses track of the consumer, due to an incorrect address or other missing information. By law, these funds are escheated, or turned over, to the Department of State Treasurer for safekeeping. As new funds are added, the NC Cash database is updated, which means that your name could be listed right now.

Once on the site, you enter your name or business name along with your city and zip code and it will put up a list. If you see your name or business on the list then you can file a claim to get your money. Make sure to check under different names you may go by including maiden names or misspellings.

And it’s that easy. The state of North Carolina will then return the assets you are owed so essentially it’s free money. Unfortunately, I checked and don’t get anything, but hey it was worth trying!

Hottest Zip Codes In America List Contains Four In North Carolina

The North Carolina home market like much of the country is exploding. Trying to purchase a house can be overwhelming; these days, you can expect to pay significantly over the asking price. So it comes as no surprise that on Realtor.com’s list of the hottest zip codes four North Carolina zip codes were mentioned.

Realtor.com compiles this list yearly. This year many of the included zip codes are in or commutable to high-cost metros. However, these growing areas are currently priced lower than their immediate surroundings. This gives homebuyers the perfect marriage of value and location. The skyrocketing demand for homes means that most properties in these areas are spending 20 to 26 fewer days on market than the typical US home.

According to the study, Realtor.com’s Hottest Zip Code rankings take into account two aspects of the housing market. These include market demand, as measured by unique viewers per property on realtor.com.  And the pace of the market as measured by the number of days a listing remains active on realtor.com. The hottest areas are those that have high demand from buyers. In other words, lots of unique viewers per each property listed for sale, and fast-selling homes, indicators of limited supply.

You can view the full realtor.com article here or keep reading to see the Top 50 including the two hottest zip codes in North Carolina.
