A Chill in the Air on the OBX

Dosh                                                                                

This week we have had a little chill in the air but the fishing has been Great! Today the wind has died down and it is a beautiful day at the Beach - people are out fishing and just taking walks on the beach picking up their sea glass and shells.

Now is the time to come on down and take a look at that beach house you have had your eye on - prices are great and we just got an update on mortgage rates and they are still holding under 5% even for Jumbo Loans.

If you would like to talk with a lender to see what programs are available - Call Kaye Jones Brown at OBX Bank and let her know weC told you to call - she is great and will educate you on financing for your Beach Home - you can contact her at 252-261-9477 or you can send her a note at kjones@obxbank.com

We look forward to helping you "Find Your Place at the Beach"

Clean all windows and paint walls a neutral color where necessary.

Turn all lights on when showing your home to make the home inviting.

Infuse the home with a pleasant aroma.

Clean carpets, woodwork and wood flooring.

Clear clutter from all rooms and discard unnecessary items.
