Highlands NC Homes, Trendy Colors

Meadows Mountain Realty, Highlands NC real estate

Trendy colors can be a part of remodeling Highlands NC homes, the problem is that trends are not for everyone.  This year’s color of the year is Marsala, and if you are thinking of the wine best known for cooking you probably won’t be surprised by the hue.  This deep burgundy-ish shade is supposed to be a hot color for paint this year.

If you like the idea of being trendy with your Highlands NC home you may want to stick to an accent wall or accessories when it comes to color, especially if you are considering selling in the near future.  Not all buyers have the same taste and keeping things a bit more neutral can be helpful.  That being said, colorful pillows, curtains, and knick-knacks can certainly make a space pop.

Contact the team at Meadows Mountain Realty today to learn more about current home trends and market conditions in Highlands NC.  We welcome the opportunity to share our knowledge and experience with you.  Let us help guide you with all of your Highlands real estate needs.

Highlands NC Real Estate, Now Good Time to Buy

Meadows Mountain Realty

Now is a good time to buy Highlands real estate.  Many buyers are thinking why buy now, lets wait until spring, but the realty is that now is a good time.  Why is now a good time?  For starters you will have less competition and perhaps more motivated sellers.

The Highlands NC area is more of a summer destination and now that we are entering the thick of winter there are fewer people coming to town.  Our area is stunning at this time of year, a place for people to enjoy winter in the mountain, from skiing to snowshoeing and everything in between, but winter is a slower pace.  This is an ideal time of year to come meet with your Highlands REALTOR® and discuss exactly what you are looking for in a home.

Contact the team at Meadows Mountain Realty today to start your Highlands real estate search.  We welcome the opportunity to help you formulate a list of properties that suit your needs and set up showings of homes currently listed for sale.  We know Highlands NC and we know Highlands real estate.

Meadows Mountain Realty, Highlands real estate

Owners of Highlands NC homes need to list their priorities when  remodeling.  Remodeling can update space in your home to suit your needs while adding value at the same time.  Home projects however rarely recoup their entire cost and weighing your needs and wants versus the value can help you make a sound decision when selecting what improvements you wish to prioritize.

Paying attention to the regularly published cost vs. value reports can help you when deciding what remodeling projects to tackle for your Highlands home.  If you plan on selling your home it is particularly important not to go too over the top with your choices.  Paring down your finishes and choosing appliances or fixtures that are not the top of the line can help you save on remodeling costs.

An experienced Highlands REALTOR® can be extremely helpful with evaluating your home and your goals when it comes to remodeling.  Contact the team at Meadows Mountain Realty today to learn more about homes in our area and what buyers are looking for in today’s market.  We know Highlands NC and we know Highlands real estate.

Highlands Real Estate, Retiring May Make Jumbo Loans Tougher

Comments Off  

Highlands NC real estate

Meadows Mountain Realty, Highlands real estate

When it comes to Highlands real estate retiring may make jumbo loans tougher to acquire.  Luxury homes in Highlands are often dream retirement homes and many buyers prefer to finance a property rather than tying up their money.  The complication comes from retiring equaling a stoppage of income.

Low interest rates are extremely attractive to retirees who own or are buying homes in Highlands NC, enabling them to free up money to invest elsewhere.  While it is not impossible to secure a jumbo loan it is more difficult than in the past due to the debt to income ratio set at 43%.  What this translates to for a borrower is that a lot of paperwork and an impeccable credit score are required.

Contact the team at Meadows Mountain Realty today for more information on retiring to Highlands NC.  Our fresh mountain air and plethora of outdoor activities lead to an active retirement.  Let our knowledge and experience work to your advantage for all of your Highlands real estate needs.
