For BuyersIf you are planning on buying a home in 2020, it will be important for you to sit down and analyze the best price for your budget. You can work through this process by submitting a home loan application on our website and letting our team of mortgage lenders at the Lake of the Ozarks assist you - or you can figure the rough estimates on your own.
This is especially essential when you are purchasing a vacation home at the Lake of the Ozarks as you will now be paying for two mortgages. Some experts suggest that you do not want to pay more than 25% of your take-home pay on a mortgage, but after you analyze your finances you can make an informed decision. The best news is that while home prices may be on the rise, home loan rates are better than they have been in years! If you find a home you love, this is a great time to secure your loan.
For SellersFrom a seller's perspective, higher home prices can mean it is a great time to sell your home. Because you want to get the best possible price out of your home, it is important to work with a real estate agent who is experienced in the Lake area as well as has experience selling homes like yours. They can use a competitive market analysis to find out what similar homes are selling for in your area and help you with your listing price.
For HomeownersIf you own a home, you may be curious about how the value of your home is doing. As the prices of homes are going up, is your home value appreciating as well? If you bought your home eight to ten years ago, there is a strong chance that you have a very nice profit tied up in your home!
