Keowee Expert Blog Perfect Place to Be
…for socializing from a distance is Lake Keowee. If you’re out on your boat, you can talk to folks in another boat and it’s quite difficult to not keep your distance. As I referred to last week if you are on your dock you can easily talk with your neighbors on their dock while keeping a respectful distance – it’s also much easier as voices really carry well across water. If you’re skiing you can wave at folks as you pass by while spraying them with water, but please no cough vapors! If you are jet skiing you can have a tremendous amount of fun while other folks on their docks watch and wish they were you. There are a plethora of other examples I can give, but I’m sure you get the picture. Fortunately for us people are seeing it our way and finding time to come out and explore their options on Lake Keowee. We’ve been able to put 4 Lake Keowee waterfront lots under contract over the past week and expect to put a house or two under contract this coming week. Right now we have over 5.5M dollars’ worth of real estate scheduled to close in the next month and a half. That’s incredible considering folks have been on lockdown for so long. We’ve been practicing our social distancing techniques while doing business and will continue to do so until it’s safe. I expect to hang on to many or those habits as we move past Covid-19 (thus the habit part). Hopefully you guys have as well, it’s become cliché but I’ll say it anyway – we are all in this together. We have 9 of our listings currently under contract so it’s time to add to the pot. If you are looking to sell, let us know! We can let you know what your Lake Keowee home or Lake Keowee waterfront lot is worth and tell you how we can get you the most money in the least amount of time with the least amount of stress! It’ll be perfect!
A Critical Guide to Home Loans:
Which loan is right for you?
Whatever you decide is the best option for you today may change as economic conditions or your personal circumstances change in the future. So how do you know it’s time to refinance?
Whether or not you should refinance usually depends on three things: what you think interest rates will do in the near future, how much monthly savings you’ll enjoy, and how long you expect to be in your home.
Refinancing is not something you consider lightly because it can be expensive. The total cost of your loan can rise as much as five percent when you add in the up-front points, fees and costs.
A goo rule of thumb is to start looking into refinancing when interest rates drop 1 to 1.5 points below what you’re currently paying. The reason is that some lenders offer loans that cost little or nothing at all. As soon as interest rates drop below your rate, start talking to your agent or loan broker.
