If you are interested in homes and real estate, you have to read this!
STOP WAITING - IT IS COSTING YOU SERIOUS MONEY!!!
As we write this post (November 2021) a lot of banks are writing mortgages with an interest rate at/around the 3.1% mark. Some are a little higher, some are a little lower - just keep this in mind.
And as we write this, you can bet that banks are going to be raising the 3.1% interest rate soon. Nobody knows when or by how much.
(We are not going to review all the reasons why banks are increasing their interest rates, that’s not something we can help)
This is incredibly important to each and every one of us in this community.
You’re probably asking, why are we - a real estate team - writing about mortgage interest rates? We’re not a bank and we don’t and can’t control the % a bank uses when they provide a mortgage.
We are writing to you - the readers, our friends, our family, and clients - who are waiting for the ho ...

We asked our agents, “Why choose Global Homes Group?”
They’re not just caring real estate experts, they’re client relations experts. They’re the front lines of Global Homes Group in the real estate industry and we wanted to know what people are telling them are the reasons why they selected a Global Homes Group agent?
The answers to this important question were much more personal than we expected…
“They chose me because they’d heard about ‘off-market’ opportunities. They didn’t see what they liked online, they didn’t like anything they’d try to find on their own, so they reached out to see if I had any sellers that were interested but not listed yet.”
What’s interesting here is - Global Homes Group agents know plenty of people looking to sell who aren’t fully committed to sell unless there is a hot buyer. (who likes to wait?!) The good news is we have a team of agents and al ...

Today we’re talking about what you can do as a seller, worried you won’t have somewhere to go after selling your home. Sound familiar? We thought so and you are not alone!
When we talk to people considering the listing of their home, their #1 fear is, “Where will we go?!?” They see their kids in school, they see all their possessions in their home, they have memories there, and what families do NOT want to do is sell their home quickly and have nowhere to go.
Can you imagine the stress and worry?!? You’ve sold your home in a seller’s market so you got top dollar, it sold quickly, and now you’re on the hunt for a place in the same school zone and you’d like to cash in the equity and appreciation on the home you just sold.
But there’s nothing you like in the price range you selected, so you have to use all the equity and appreciation for the next home, which kind of puts you right back where you started. So why go through t; ...

Get Your HVAC Professionally Inspected - Your HVAC is likely the biggest draw on your power bill each month, and it’s going to be a bigger part of it in the summer.
