Remember the old High School Football Cheer?
“2-4-6-8 Who Do We Appreciate?”
Well the answer is obviously…YOU!
Especially since you read my
Buyer’s Edge Newsletter
and laugh at my silly jokes!
But I have a more intriguing question for you.
How long have you been dreaming about
YOUR LAKE HOME?
- Two years….?
- Four years….?
- Six years….?
- Eight years or longer?
What you need to ask yourself is this:
“How can I take action on this long awaited desire, sooner,
rather than later?”
With the absolutely impending Interest rate hikes and uncertainty of the market the best thing you can do is to scoop up one of last year’s leftovers or New Listings early in the season…
and secure your lake home mortgage while the rates are still low!
Yellen is scheduled to raise rates 3 more times during 2017!!!
This video series (below) is awesome…
we are “cable cutters” in my house and
have revamped our cellular phone plans more than once—
and these are additional tips that will help you to create your downpayment—or at least your closing costs—almost out of thin air:
Here’s a quick story…I had a couple that was putting their girls through Virginia Tech all at the same time and were convinced that they couldn’t even look at homes for another 4 years…well…they’ve been enjoying their lake home for 2 years already. They spoke to their bank, tweaked some things at home, and didn’t even have to switch to a peanut butter and jelly diet 🙂 Imagine that!
Here’s another one...we bought our FIRST LAKE HOME…when we were in our 30’s and I was a laid-off programmer when the company I worked for decided to go bankrupt instead of IPO during the Dot Com Bust….so it CAN be done….
(I’m in my early 50’s now…)
I have a a list of: THE LEAST EXPENSIVE PROPERTIES ON THE WHOLE OF SMITH MOUNTAIN LAKE…this list includes doublewides, singlewides, undesireables, etc… These are “single family” waterfront homes up to $499,999
AND THERE ARE ONLY 100 OF THEM LEFT…
and some of these aren’t even worth buying! [but rather than me removing them, we’ll look at those on a case-by-case basis]
(email me now for that list: firstname.lastname@example.org )
Keep in mind that I HIGHLY RECOMMEND:
- A minimum of 100’ of waterfrontage
- A completely constructed dock (NOT JUST A FLOATER OR STATIONARY PIER)
- NO SHARED DOCKS, WELLS, OR SEPTICS
Just KNOW that I’VE ALWAYS GOT YOUR BACK and we’re in this together…
I Sincerely hope you have a GREAT WEEKEND
and please let me know that it’s a question of (not IF…but)
WHEN you will be HERE TO BUY YOUR LAKE HOME! 🙂
Feel FREE to CALL OR TEXT ME—
I answer emails all day too….from my phone
All the Best!
