Often the biggest factor in real estate transactions that drives decisions is the mortgage. Buyers typically need a mortgage as few have the amount of cash available to make such a large purchase. The mortgage process can be confusing. Borrowers need to be approved and should try to obtain the lowest possible interest rate based on their creditworthiness. Also, there is the decision of the length of the mortgage. Traditionally this decision options are a 30-year term or a 15-year term. A typical response is, “I’ll get a 30-year and pay it like a 15.” This decision alone can cost many thousands of dollars.
If you are local, you’ve likely noticed the recent progress to new commercial construction projects around town such as Chick-fil-A, Centricare, Denny’s, etc. But what about the coming Walmart Neighborhood Market? You’ve likely seen the sign up for months, but no signs of progress.
Community Spotlight - Glenwood Oaks
One of the most scenic areas of DeLand is the beautiful Glenwood area. Its landscape is unmistakable as you travel along famed Grand Avenue. The beautiful live oak trees that line the road are enough to prompt feelings of serenity as if you were on a Sunday drive in the deep south. Aside from the landscape, Glenwood is the perfect place for a bike ride via the Spring-to-Spring trail or a great place to launch your boat to access the St. Johns River at Highland Park Fish Camp.
