Why Buy a Home?
Thinking of buying a home but not sure if the timing is right? Converting from a renter to a buyer but not certain you're ready? Here are 5 great reasons to buy a home!
1. Prices are rising. Prices are expected to climb 5.2% over the next 12 months—which means homes prices are low but values are on the rise. It's a good time to buy and a great time to own!
2. Mortgage rates are rising. Right now they're still a low 4%... but don't wait around and expect the rates to wait with you.
3. Buying a home is a financial investment. It builds equity over time and grows your financial portfolio. Plus, you reap the tax benefits of numerous deductions and returns, as well as the peace of mind that comes from stable monthly payments—even when rents are on the rise.
4. Either way, you're paying a mortgage. Will you pay your landlord's mortgage or your own? And did you know that on average, buying a home is 33% cheaper than renting?
5. Buying builds community. You never become more invested in a community than when you own property. Property owners care about ensuring their community flourishes and remains a great place to live.
With all the online resources available, it might seem all too easy to search for—and find—your dream home online. But while searching homes may seem simple online, it's all the rest that can spell disaster for unprepared home buyers.
It all starts with location. You can have the absolutely perfect house, but if it's in the wrong location, you'll never be happy. That's why the old adage, "location, location, location" directly translates to, "local, local, local". As local Realtors, we know the area much better than your average Joe, and that means we know all the pros and cons of all Fort Mill's neighborhoods. We'll be sure to steer you right!

We've been in the game a long time, so we're pretty good at some of the (really important) things that often get overlooked—like understanding and responding to your needs, communicating, negotiating the best price, and of course, helping you through all that pesky paperwork.
