Buy Today !

Buy From Us!

Now is the time to buy if you want to be in your new rental home before the season - you still have time to close on your home and be able to use it before the rentals begin.  We are seeing interest rates creep up and prices are also going up! We are still in a Buyer's Market, but the tide is turning! Give us a call today.  This time of the year we can easily get in and out of the homes and that way you can compare the one you really like to the ones that don't make the cut!

Give us a call today and update us on your plans and make sure we are still searching the correct criteria for you!

Feel free to call at any time! Have a Great Week! Rosemarie and The Doshier Team 252-305-3996

2016 Outlook for Real Estate

Here are five more predictions for 2016 from the mortgage giant: 

  1. The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage will likely average below 4.5 percent for 2016 on an annualized basis.
  2. Mortgage rates will gradually move higher posing an affordability challenge. But expect a strengthening labor market and pent-up demand to carry momentum into 2016.
  3. Home prices will likely moderate slightly to 4.4 percent in 2016, driven in part by the reduction in home buyer affordability and reduced demand as a result of Fed tightening.
  4. But industry activity will grow in 2016 despite monetary tightening. Expect total housing starts to increase 16 percent year-over-year and total home sales to increase 3 percent.
  5. While home purchases will increase next year, higher interest rates will reduce the refinance volume pushing overall mortgage originations lower in 2016 than in 2015.

Thanksgving on the OBX

Thanksgiving on The Outer Banks was Beautiful! You could not ask for a nicer weekend! People were out on the beach, fishing, flying kites, bike riding, watching the beautiful moon in the evening after sunset.

There were many activities and The Kites with Lights and the arrival of Santa is always a big time down here. Next weekend Manteo will have their Christmas Parade and we will all gather around the yule log - come take a ride down and check the activities for the weekend - everyone says "what do you have to do when you do not go to the beach?" well take a drive down and see - there is always something going on in the OBX and we are always available to show you homes as it is very easy to get in and out of the houses this time of the year!
