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.

Carol Elizabeth Pennell defines a Professional Realtor. While selling my property, she consistently delivered a thoughtful, detailed, knowledgable, quality approach. And, given the ever-changing developments of our national politics and economic climate, she could reflect a big picture view of potential market place effects based on those current events. As my “for-sale” process progressed forward, Carol always welcomed idea-building-conversations with me. She continually brought her “A” game to our discussions delivering a confident clarity while at the same time actively listening to and responding to my thoughts, questions, or concerns. Carol is a team player that draws upon her lengthy history and many relationships in the Asheville area to get the job done. I’m all the richer for having met and worked with this wonderful person! Carry-on dear-one!

Carol is an excellent agent and knows the Asheville market as good as anyone I could imagine. She is very active in trying to get the property out there and to the appropriate audience. She always meets the other agent and potential buyers to make sure they have all the information that is available on the property and answer any questions they may have. This is the 2nd property that she has sold for us and her enthusiasm is self-evident. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Carol Pennell's knowledge of the Asheville real estate market was invaluable. She knows the area and she has a good feel for what people are looking for. Her knowledge and honesty were important to me and led to the sale of my house at a very satisfactory price.

Carol Pennell was our agent for a very challenging property we were selling in North Asheville. The large property had been customized to suit two artists over the years, plus we had moved abroad. The sale needed to take place communicating internationally, with 2 renters on site. Carol handled the international challenge with ease, humor and grace. Her expertise was invaluable when it came to the closing round of negotiations and juggling all the details. We knew we could trust Carol 100% - she guided us through each step, making sure we understood every detail. We knew with Carol on board we could pay attention to our part of the sale - such as international travel plans and clearing out the house - because she had our backs on everything else. If your property is unique, then Carol Pennell is your Realtor.

It was a difficult sale. The buyers broke our first contract and although Carol worked very hard to keep that sale afloat, they bailed out. We had some unexpected problems with the second sale...not Carol's fault, but she got in there and fixed things. I have some property to sell in the near future. Carol will be my agent. It's simple. She's good. Michael Kampen O'Riley

Carol did a fantastic job for us.She is direct, honest, professional, and really knows her stuff, especially with the north Asheville market. If Carol said she was going to do it, she did it. If she said she was going to show up, she showed up - early. Things just got done as she steered us through the home-sale process. Bottom line is when she came on-board the house was sold at a fair price in short order, and we were done. Wish we'd known about her earlier - we wouldn't have wasted four months with the house languishing in no-man's land. I would highly recommend Carol Pennell if you want a strong partner in buying or selling a home. You won't find better.

Carol did an outstanding job guiding us through the home-buying process in Asheville. She was tenacious in pursuit of that "right fit" house for us, and advised us well at every turn. Buying in a very competitive real estate marketplace, Carol was our rock throughout the process, frequently and generously sharing advice and sound recommendations. We were amazed by her knowledge of the area, particularly the historical trends that have affected development. We now recommend Carol to anyone we know who is buying or selling a home in the area, and will continue to do so in the future!

As I first time home seller, I wasn't sure what to do or what to expect. Throughout this process Carol gave me great advice including what price and why, what rooms and areas to "stage,", and what buyers are looking for. Her knowledge, confidence, and enthusiasm made the whole process go very smoothly. Carol took what could have been a stressful episode in my life and made it a piece of cake. I could see people deciding to sell their house just to be able to spend more time with Carol Pennell.

Carol Pennell was a relentless advocate for me during the recent sale of my home! She represented me every step of the way. This included addressing some very challenging inspections, skittish buyers through to the final details/curve balls at closing. She always, always had my back and kept me informed with timely communications. She was a great teammate and team leader throughout the process. I highly recommend Carol to anyone planning to buy or sell in Buncombe County!

Carol was an incredible agent for us. She knew the market inside-out, was able to define a marketing strategy suitable for a somewhat unique property, and went above and beyond several times to ensure the success of our sale. Carol's enthusiasm and energy helped us multiple times during our sale, including bringing in legal experts and networking within the agent community to answer complex legal questions and move the sale along. During the entire process, she was extremely professional and very honest in her recommendations for how we should proceed. Most importantly, we felt Carol was a truly good and honest person, and cared for us and our property throughout the experience. Highly recommended!

Carol Pennell has helped our family with the sale of one home and purchase of another within the past 6 months. She was professional, kind and trustworthy at every turn and provided us with the information that we needed to make decisions along the way. Her experience and professional contacts in the area are invaluable. I'd recommend Carol Pennell to anyone looking to buy or sell in Western North Carolina.

Carol clearly knows the market for this price range of home well. She was honest and her experience showed when she suggested a selling price. She stayed in touch with us about all showings, when we had the offer, when inspections were to be done, etc. She was both friendly and professional. We would definitely recommend her to others looking for a realtor and we would use her again.

Carol is the consummate real estate professional. She has a wealth of experience in, and knowledge of, the Asheville market. She assembled the perfect team to help me with my purchase - mortgage broker, closing attorney, and inspection professional. Carol was by my side every step of the way - from the initial viewing of my home through closing. She stayed on top of every detail. Without her strategic planning and contract/financing negotiations, the purchase of my dream home would not have been possible. And, as an added bonus she is a delight to work with! Without a doubt, Carol is my 'go-to' agent and deserves my recommendation to others without reservation. Thank you, Carol!

We called the Office for a recommendation for an experienced Broker to list a historic home in Montford with background knowledge of the area.

Carol was exceptional at understanding and addressing my desires for my home as I relocated to the Asheville area~ She was historically knowledgeable of the area, providing both an overall synopsis of the realty sector as well as present market activities~ She was accessible, patient and thorough throughout my time with her~ a true-gem!

Carol is just simply incredible. We love working with her to build our Asheville real estate portfolio. Her insight into the community and attention to detail are remarkable. She also has a vast knowledge of how Asheville is growing. For example, she cautioned us about what seemed to be a great house because there is a future highway expansion planned that would drastically affect its property value. She did not tell us not to buy it, but just provided the facts for our consideration. It's that kind of honesty we really appreciate about her. We kept that house as an option, but kept looking as well. We are so much happier with the place we decided to purchase instead.

You could not pick a better agent than Carol Pennell. With her experience and knowledge of the area you can expect the best service available in the industry. My husband and I have never sold a house before so we were unsure of the process and had plenty of questions. Carol walked us through the whole thing with grace and unending patience. She priced our house fairly and actually for a little bit more than we thought we could get but it sold quickly. The photographer she hired to photograph our place did an outstanding job and the guidance Carol gave us in staging our home really paid off. She's amazing and we couldn't be more pleased!

Carol knew the market and always guided our understanding of what could be possible within the parameters of our goals. Under trying circumstances Carol remained steadfast, loyal, extremely helpful and supportive, creative and amazingly resilient. She worked tirelessly on our behalf with other members of the Beverly-Hanks staff. Having her on our side gave us the courage to continue a challenging process toward property ownership. Rachel seemed to work tirelessly on our behalf to secure financing when nearly insurmountable obstacles kept delaying the tedious process of property purchase. She was creative, efficient and very nearly a miracle worker.

We would recommend Carol Pennell to ANYONE!!! She was simply the BEST. Carol doesn't just represent a property - she takes it on like a well worn coat with personal interest and representation. She really makes you and the buyers feel wonderful in your/their new home. We have seen this in both of our dealings with Carol. I've never seen any other agent take on such a personal interest in both parties and their best interests.

“Carol Pennell is in a category of her own in the real estate business. She embodies all seven of the top attributes on the list. We have the distinction of buying the smallest property she has ever sold. Yet, Carol worked as hard in securing that small property for us as she would have a multi-million dollar estate. She was pro-active, creative, and accessible. She stayed in constant communication with us, from writing the contract through closing, and beyond. Carol is a creative, personable professional with the highest integrity and expertise. We will always go to Carol for our real estate needs in the Asheville area."

I highly recommend her for your 'Home' hunting in Asheville.”
