Navigating High Mortgage Interest Rates: A Wise Investment in Your Future

Wed, Sep 13th 2023 6:36 pm by Lindsay Faircloth About Faircloth Real Estate Group

In today's ever-evolving real estate market, prospective homebuyers are facing the challenge of rising mortgage interest rates. While the notion of higher rates may seem daunting at first glance, it's essential to put this into perspective. In this blog post, we'll explore how even with higher interest rates, securing a mortgage can still be a financially savvy move when compared to the alternatives of high-interest credit cards and steep rental costs.

1. Mortgage Rates vs. High-Interest Credit Cards

When you compare mortgage interest rates to the exorbitant interest charges that come with high-limit credit cards, it becomes clear that a mortgage is a more sound choice. Here's why:

Why is my homeowners insurance quote so high?

Mon, Aug 28th 2023 12:55 pm by Lindsay Faircloth Buyer Info

Why is my homeowner's insurance so high?

Recently I received a letter from my insurance carrier saying they would no longer be issuing policies in my area due to it being a coastal region and I would not be renewed. No problem, I thought. I went back and asked for a quote which led to another, which led me to ask for a quote from 7 different companies in order to understand why my rate was SO HIGH!  I needed answers and I knew if I needed them that my clients did as well, so I found some.

In this blog I sat down with Perry Stalvey from Perry Insurance Group in North Myrtle Beach to find answers for all of you. Here is what I found. 

Me: Perry, thank you so much for being here today. ...

Which Real Estate Website is the Most Accurate?

Tue, Mar 21st 2023 4:04 pm by Lindsay Faircloth About Faircloth Real Estate Group

"Which Real Estate Website is the Most Accurate"? If you are anything like me you want to use the most accurate website to find your home and if you are selling you definitely want your home on that site! How do you know which one is THE most accurate? Let's get into it. 

1. Are and Zillow the MOST accurate?

Let me first say, I like these sites. I use them. I know, I am not supposed to say that because they are supposed to be my enemy but I find them to be useful to me in the field sometimes. They are easy to use and pretty to look at but they are not the most accurate. Though they provide most of the same information that other sites provide the ease of use is their great...

Fri, Jan 6th 2023 2:19 pm by Lindsay Faircloth New Home Communities

Pelican Bay Lakes is a new home community in Longs, SC. What most people don't know is that this particular area of Longs lies between North Myrtle Beach and Little River closer to North Myrtle Beach. Pelican Bay Lakes is tucked back off of Robert Edge Parkway near the Intracoastal Waterway and just minutes from the beach. 4 stop lights separate this community from the beach at the end of Main Street in North Myrtle Beach!

Buying a home with a lower interest rate and other tips

Wed, Dec 21st 2022 11:11 am by Lindsay Faircloth Buyer Info

When it comes to buying a home interest rates have always been a huge determining factor in figuring affordability. So what can be done, as a buyer, if rates are higher than they have been?

It is common to hyper focus on interest rates but the number that matters the most is the monthly payment on your new home. This is the number that you need to work with in order to stay within your budget. 

If the interest rate is high that means that your affordability may be decreased. Basically, the amount you are qualified for may be less than expected and in some markets can affect your chance of buying a home. Don't worry though! There is always a solution, sometimes you just have to look a li...

Thanksgiving on a budget

Thu, Nov 10th 2022 9:49 am by Lindsay Faircloth Happy Holidays

Thanksgiving is a time for people to come together, enjoy each other's company, eat some awesome food, and just give thanks. The kicker to all of this, food can be expensive and hosting for a large group can cost a whole lot if you do it wrong and can become stressful instead of joyful. 

Here are some tips on keeping Thanksgiving stress free, affordable, and enjoyable!

1. Keep it simple!

Thanksgiving doesn't have to be a huge feast of a million foods that takes you 2 days to prepare. Keep it simple this year by streamlining your menu. Offer the basics that you know will be eaten and enjoyed. You can also ask your guests to bring their favorite dish to share. This helps take some burden...

Is now a good time to sell my home?

Mon, Oct 31st 2022 11:51 am by Lindsay Faircloth Selling your home

One of the questions I am getting lately is from sellers who want to know if now is a good time to sell. As we enter into the fall market people tend to think that it would be better to wait for spring. In some markets, that may be the case and though things do slow a bit during the holiday season, in our coastal region we still see a very active market. So the short answer to the question is, yes. Now is a good time to sell. However, as a seller you need to remember these few things;

1. Do NOT overprice your house!

I can't even say this enough. NEVER put yourself in a position where you need to make continual adjustments. Be realistic with the true market value of your home and price i...

The Return of the Buyer's Market

Wed, Oct 26th 2022 11:09 am by Lindsay Faircloth Homebuying

It's like music to a buyer's ears! "The return of a buyer's market". Seems great but there's a catch. Rates are much higher than they were even a year ago. What does this mean for a buyer? Let's take a real look at what the market is doing and what it means for both buyers and sellers. 

A look through the Buyer's eyes

Not so long ago interest rates to purchase a home were as low as 2.875%. When you are living the moment, it is easy to forget that rates were higher just a few years before that. In fact, this isn't the first time we have faced an increase in rates or even truly high interest rates! Low rates were never going to last forever, yet somehow we expected them to and that has ...

Mon, Apr 4th 2022 11:07 am by Lindsay Faircloth Relocating

Relocating? We are here to help! Our agents know firsthand what it is like to move across the country to the beach. We understand the complexity of trying to piece together every moving part in order to make sure everything and everyone gets to where they are going. 

We also know that you need someone at your destination to be your eyes and hands-on advocate when you are looking for that new place to call your own. Once you have decided to relocate, there are a few steps you should take.

  1. FIND AN AGENT TO REPRESENT YOU. This may seem like a no brainer but so many people begin their search only to discover that the area or home that they thought they loved didn't quite work for their ne...

Sellers Markets and Bidding Wars

Tue, Mar 29th 2022 10:33 am by Lindsay Faircloth Buyer Info

"It's a Seller's market", "highest and best", "multiple offers", these are the phrases that are repeated over and over right now. Buyers are just expected to accept the fact that the home they see may not be within reach for them. They are expected to understand and accept that the price they see listed is most likely not what that property will sell for, and Buyers are being encouraged to pay more for a home than what it appraises for because there is someone else who will buy it if they don't. In some cases, contingencies are being removed; contracts won't be accepted if they have any protection in place for the buyer such as home inspections, appraisals, even financing in some cases. H...

Our Philosophy

Mon, Mar 21st 2022 2:37 pm by Lindsay Faircloth About Faircloth Real Estate Group

For close to 20 years I have been a licensed Realtor in 2 different states. I have loved every minute of this career. That's not to say that every minute has been easy or that I am able to help everyone but one thing I have learned along the way is that it costs nothing to be kind and it can make all the difference to someone. 

Over the past few years, I have been asked what the culture of my company is, how we work, and what makes us different from the rest. I wanted to take a minute to share our company philosophy and the rules that we do our best to live by in this profession. 

In the photo you will see what we value and how we serve our clients and each other. It's not a complicated...

Becoming a Real Estate Agent

Wed, Nov 17th 2021 9:28 am by Lindsay Faircloth Real Estate Jobs Available

Are you thinking about a career in real estate and you don't know where to start? I can help. Many people come into this business thinking the same thing. Whenever I ask an agent why they chose a career in real estate I usually hear one answer more than anything else, money. Seems like it would be a good answer, right? I mean, no one chooses a career that they could potentially make no money doing. That wouldn't be smart. So in short, money is a valid reason but it can't be THE reason. Chasing dollars and deals in this industry will result in burn out and frustration. There will always be a LOT of agents to choose from but the majority of them won't make it past year 1 and if they do, by ...
