The process of buying a home can be overwhelming but, you don’t need to go through the process alone - I’m here to help.


You may be wondering if now is a good time to buy a home…or if interest rates are projected to rise or fall in the last two quarters of 2019. CoreLogic predicts home prices will appreciate by 4.8% over the next 6 months. In Charlotte proper, our home prices increased 6.9% last year. 

The cost of waiting


Interest rates - Freddie Mac predicts that interest rates will rise to 4.5% by the end of 2019. Is it also wise to consider that next year is an election year and investments of all kinds (stocks & real estate alike) are far more volatile during an election year. Conversely, the interest rates remain quite low this year and sales prices continue to rise due to low inventory.


In a nutshell, NOW couldn’t be a better time to buy a home in Charlotte.

Good morning, Debe Maxwell, CRS NOW is a great time to buy.... but if you can't for whatever reason, any time is better than no time.... real estate is NOT day's a long term investment.... buy when you're able and live it in until you don't fit or it's time for a larger or smaller investment....

Morning Debe.

We bought our home 5 years ago, it is amazing on the price we can get for it today.  BTW, we are looking to move, just haven't found the right place yet
