Happy Thanksgiving!

"For the hay and the corn and the wheat that is reaped,
For the labor well done, and the barns that are heaped,
For the sun and the dew and the sweet honeycomb,
For the rose and the song and the harvest brought home-
Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving!
 
For the trade and the skill and the wealth in our land,
For the cunning and strength of the workingman’s hand,
For the good that our artists and poets have taught,
For the friendship that hope and affection have brought-
Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving!
 
For the homes that with purest affection are blest,
For the season of plenty and well-deserved rest,
For our country extending from sea unto sea;
The land that is known as the “Land of the Free”-
Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving!"
~ Meghan Mills
 
Wishing you a blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. May we all count the many blessings in our lives and live our lives with gratitude every day.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Could a Cooled Down Market be Good for Buyers?

After a scorching real estate market during the pandemic, rising interest rates have definitely cooled the chaos. But does that mean bad news for buyers? Not necessarily, here’s why.
When the housing market heated up, many would-be homeowners found themselves in a position of being unable to purchase due to cash offers and bidding wars that went sky-high, often thousands of dollars above the asking price and almost all contingencies waived. With interest rates rising, home prices are now edging down and correcting in most markets.
In a recent Bloomberg article (October 2022) by Teresa Ghilarducci titled “Looking to Buy a House? It’s Not the Worst Time to Buy” she states “Buying an asset when the price is falling is generally a good thing. Buying a home now when mortgage rates are high and housing prices are falling means as mortgage rates stabilize or even drop, your house value will more likely inflate than if prices were rapidly increasim ...

What is a ‘Principal Only’ payment on your Home Mortgage?

When you purchase a home and secure a mortgage through a lender, you are paying several components of that mortgage.
1.       The principal- the amount of the loan needed to purchase the home.
2.       Interest on that loan- a monthly interest payment calculated on the interest rate accessed to the loan.
3.       If you put down less than 20% you are also paying PMI (private mortgage insurance)

If you currently have a 30-year mortgage, and never make any additional; ...
