New testimonial!!

by Mike Sackman

"Mike made the sale of our home in Beaufort incredibly easy for us. He knew the questions that we would have before we even asked them and answers to those questions. We had an offer/contract on our house within 3 days after we listed it for 98% of asking price!!! He is amazing to work with and wonderful at what he does." Thanks so much Mike!

Should I Buy a Home Now?

by Mike Sackman

I'm often asked if this is a good time to buy a home. Some clients are concerned that home prices may fall down the road, while others are convinced that home prices will go up.

Home prices are one factor in determining your cost of ownership, but so are interest rates and financing availability. Even though interest rates have fluctuated, they are still near historic lows. Since your monthly mortgage payment is a combination of paying down your principal and paying the interest owed, a one point rise in interest rates could cost tens of thousands of dollars over the life of your mortgage!

While a home is a major investment, it is also the center of your personal life. It's important to live in a home that reflects your taste and values, yet is within your financial "comfort zone." To that end, it may be more important to lock in today's relatively low interest rates while they are still available.

Please give me a call if I can be of any assistance in determining how much home you can afford in today's market.
