Who can understand local real estate better than a local? I grew up in Hendersonville, and while my higher education studies took me out of the Blue Ridge, the mountains “called me home,” as John Muir would say. I have been back in Asheville sin…Read More

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.

I would definitely recommend Katie Ledford to anyone considering buying a home in the Asheville area. She is very professional but also has a great friendly personality. She was always available to take my calls, texts or emails. Although we were in NJ during most of the process we never felt the distance because Katie would send pictures or video of the property. We can't thank Katie enough for all she has done to make our dream a reality.

It was a pleasure working with Katie Ledford. She’s very good at what she does, I was very happy to have the opportunity to meet her and have her be part of buying my retirement home. She was always there when I needed her and was willing to do whatever she could do to help things go well and to help me out. It’s not easy when you live in another state and you are trying to buy a piece of property, she really helped ease my stress. I have already recommended Katie to my family and friends!

Katie Ledford was absolutely awesome. She contacted me by both phone and email. She was not pushy and would send me occasional emails with houses that may be interesting to me. She is very responsive. We went to see two homes I had selected. The first one was ok, but Katie saw things that I didn't and she brought them to my attention. For the second home, she suggested that I owed it to myself to look at it because I wasn't going to take the time to look. Boy am I glad I listened to her. It ended up being the perfect home for us and we closed on it within 30 days. I love our new home and feel I owe it all to Katie. She made home buying easy and fun.

Katie Ledford was energetic, very responsive and paid appropriate attention to the details of the transaction. She was very knowledgeable of the area, the home we were buying and things we should take into consideration during the purchasing process. By arranging a meeting with a financing advisor early in the process (i.e. the day after we met her) we were able to quickly put together an attractive offer with a early closing date. Katie was extremely easy to work with, responded quickly to any questions and helped to close the purchase in a very timely fashion.
