Why isn’t it a good idea to pay off your mortgage?

Paying off a mortgage quickly doesn’t make a lot of financial sense, but it does give a lot of homeowners a great deal of comfort. For it to make sense for you, the investment’s annualized rate of return needs to earn more than the cost of your mortgage interest rate. With many homeowners sitting on some of the lowest rates in history, (3.5%–5.5%) it’s not hard to achieve a higher rate of return. What makes it hard is that there are few guarantees in investments. While the stock market has produced a rate of return close to 10% over the last 90 years, individual investments lose money every day. Even real estate can include risk from market conditions and lack of liquidity. Working with a professional financial planner and mortgage loan officer is the best way to achieve confidence in your personal financial goals.

Donna Banks was the only broker we considered for agent for our house. After meeting and talking with her, we had no reservations about engaging her as our broker. We had used another agent from Asheville, NC, two-three years ago, but to no avail. After only three showings during the course of the contract, we knew we needed a good agent, but my husband's health issues prevented us from placing house on market until 2019, and Donna was our choice. A good choice as our house sold in approximately six weeks. Donna stayed on abreast of everything, and she kept us informed, as well. She was very patient with us as she had to explain some things more than once to us. Her marketing skills are impressive. Donna is all of the above and then some. She is great to work with, and we considered her fully trained and well-informed. She has a great personality, is trustworthy and very dependable. Fantastic pretty much sums up our experience with Donna Banks and Beverly-Hanks, and we highly recommend them.

In an attempt to sell a couple of years ago because of a job relocation, I went with one of the local brokers in Mitchell Co. They did not understand having an internet presence, nor did they market outside of the local area. They also didn't understand the importance of professional photography or social media. I ended up having to take it off the market and rent it because the local realtor let a couple of deals fall through, and just didn't do my house justice. When i decided to sell this time,I interviewed brokers and scheduled with three people. One didn't show up at all, one showed up in blue jeans and piece of crumbled up paper for notes, and then Donna showed up. She was professionally dressed, had lots of information for me to go through, had already researched my property, and took the time to sit down and discuss strategy. I knew within 5 minutes she was going to sell my house. Donna understood the importance of marketing this house to the right audience. She had a strong social media presence, and was a constant advocate for me. My house is somewhat unique, so Donna went the extra mile having professional photos taken because she knew that my house would need those for marketing...and to appeal to out of town buyers. It went great and the house got lots of attention. I know because of Donna, my house sold in just a few weeks in what is an otherwise slower market right now. If I ever have real estate needs in Western NC again, I would use Donna's services again without question...and I highly recommend her to anyone...buyer or seller.

She showed early on that she was willing to go the extra mile despite this being a very small sale. She treated us as if this was a very large sale and as a retired sales professional my wife I were very impressed. Bottom line is that she got the job done while others in the local area who were much more experienced had not.
