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.

We were out-of-state buyers, and had only two days in which we hoped to find, and purchase, a home. Jan had prepared with a list of homes that met our requirements, and we hit the ground running. With Jane's insight and guidance, we quickly realized it was not going to be easy. Having planned to build, Jan helped us understand how limited our options were considering our very short time. She suggested, and brought us to a development that met most of our requirements, and had financial terms that worked really well for us. Within thirty two hours of having met Jan, we were under contract for our future home. Jan was a joy to work with. Consumately professional, but also very friendly and welcoming. We would happily work with Jan again on any future real estate transactions.

Jan had assisted us in looking for a place for our son, and we were impressed with her professionalism and knowledge, so it was an easy choice when we decided to sell our home. Jan could not have been more professional, helpful, friendly, courteous...you name it. Jan was extremely helpful and competent in every aspect of the sale. We had to move before the house sold, and she did a spectacular job representing us and advising us. We also had some rather trying complications to work through. Jan helped us through all of it, and somehow kept from just throwing up her hands and telling us to "deal with it!"

We've known Jan Rector for 10 years. She has shown us numerous houses and was tireless in her effort to find us the perfect property. We bought a lot through her 10 years ago and built. This time, we realized we needed a smaller house on one level. Again, Jan was diligent in looking for the right property for us. When we couldn't find a one level house in our desired location, Jan took us to see the lot in Reems Creek Village. It was right for us and we're going to build again. As always, Jan has stuck by us and persevered until we found what we wanted. She will DEFINITELY get our listing when we finish building our new house and sell the current one. I recommend Jan without reservation. She is the BEST realtor we've ever dealt with. Jan is just the best! You're lucky to have her. She's exemplary of what a realtor should be!

We love working with Jan. She strives to meet the needs of her clients and does not impose her own agenda into the process, which is helpful when dealing with independent thinkers like us! Jan is bright, friendly, responsive, and kind. I highly recommend her services.

Jan was extremely professional and she answered every question that we had and she always got back with us immediately after we text or emailed her. We would definitely recommend her for someone else and use her again for any kind of business that we had in real estate.

Our experience working with Jan was outstanding! Even in tough times by our own demands or throughout the process she proved to be understanding, friendly, personable, and always available! Jan made sure our concerns where addressed and put to rest. We will definitely refer friends and family in the future! I highly recommend Jan Rector!!

We really enjoyed our house search with Jan. She related many anecdotes and histories of the area. She couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Our daughter bought a house a few months before we did and she said she wished that she could have bought from Jan. Jan had an excellent knowledge of the area, often showing us the back way to avoid traffic. She was tireless in the search. It is obvious that she loves helping people and for that reason I would not hesitate to recommend her to friends and family.

Jan Rector was wonderful. As a single parent I really wanted someone to listen to me, she did. I had certain requirements for a house and needed it in a certain area of town. Again, she listened. I had another agent (not with your company) who didn't listen, who didn't care what area of town, who said that the area I wanted was not a good area. But really she just wanted the commision and wanted to move on. I called Jan and she knew what I needed and stayed the course. Never varied, stayed intouch with me daily. I was not alone in this journey. This was my first house and I was a little afraid. Basiclly she held my hand through the whole thing. Thanks Jan I will refer my friends and family to Jan

We could not have asked for a better realtor than Jan Rector. She was knowledgeable, patient, and professional. She made the home buying process as easy as possible for us. She went above and beyond what we expected from a realtor.

Jan Rector helped us through thick and thin. When we felt like giving up because the house just wasn't sellling, Jan would be there cheering us on with positive feedback and with her wonderful positive attitude. Like I mentioned before, ours was a very unique home and it needed special buyers. She stuck with it, and helped find them. She was always professional and always kept our best interest in the forefront. She marketed the house well, and kept in contact with many of her contacts to make sure the house got coverage. She was the perfect agent and became part of the family in many ways. One thing that stood out was I asked her to help me stage the house and she did. WE went room to room and she gave me pointers, and tips and suggestions on how I could declutter, add a few pillows and a rug, move some furniture around, etc., things that weren't expensive at all---that gave the house a polished look. It really made a difference on how people reacted to the house. She wasn't afraid of hurting my feelings because I asked in humility and she was so sweet the way she gave her advice. She is just the agent everyone dreams of but can never find. WE love her!

Jan Rector is a very professional agent. Jan worked very close with me in every aspect of selling my 1125 Reems Creek property. Jan was always available and provided up to the minute details on all activity. Jan was great with promotional ideas, which worked. I highly recommend Jan to anyone who has a property they want to sell. C. Roy Mendenhall Sr.

Jan did a great job in representing me in the sale of my house - she understood the market, helped to review/stage the house and priced my house appropriately so it sold quickly and at a great price. She handled minor repair issues requested by the buyer, kept me updated with status of repairs & closing, and ensured that we had a timely & successful closing. I highly recommend Jan - the entire experience was quite stress-free due to her diligence and hard work.

We had worked with Jan Rector at Beverly-Hanks Associates a couple of years ago, but our property purchase was derailed at that time by hurricane damage here on the coast. We knew from previous experience that she is conscientious, courteous, considerate, extremely responsive to our needs, prompt and places her clients before all else. She is an intelligent, knowledgeable agent and a pleasure to work with. Jan made the entire negotiation and purchase of our land parcel a snap. She patiently took us to all of the lots I had found on the internet, and came up with some additional possibilities. She was aware of our financial target and maintained her search parameters within a reasonable price point accordingly. Jan explained all of the legalities in the contract, and facilitated moving it through the paralegal process for closing. She even noted an error on the HUD statement that both of us had missed. If any of our friends or acquaintances are considering a real estate purchase in the mountains, we will certainly refer them to Jan and Beverly-Hanks Associates. Kudos and thanks to Beverly-Hanks for having such outstanding agents to facilitate the most important first step in our retirement to the mountains of western North Carolina!

She was the first agent we met when we walked into the office- unannounced. Jan Rector was happy to sit and chat. She didn't try to sell us anything until she learned who we were and what we wanted to do. Jan spent several hours showing us around to give us a better idea of Ashville and surrounding towns. We came back the following summer and spent a month researching the area and looking at homes for sale. Jan waited and listened to our input until she was able to clearly know what we wanted for our new home. She finally got us to Windstone and we ( Jean and I ) just loved it. We found our new home and we found a friend too. We'll be moving to Fletcher from CT sometime in January. Thanks Jan !!! Jan was a very effective sales person; low-key, but spot on. She asked many questions and helped find us the home we wanted by listening.

Jan did well in solving the problems encountered in a difficult sale and also in the buying of a home. Both sales had challenging buyers and sellers. She was patient and listened to us as we vented and then suggested appropriate solutions. Even after the sale was over, Jan has quickly and cheerfully answered questions that I have had.
