So we have been a little busy the past few months during these crazy times! From figuring out this 'Rona mess, navigating "masks-are-a-must" vacations, torn muscles and kidney stones, we still managed to be blessed with an extraordinary year so far.
On top of all of that, we expanded to the Upstate Region and Midlands of South Carolina along with the Piedmont Region of North Carolina. We have been serving clients and making new friends from Greenville, Columbia, Lincolnton, Charlotte, Albemarle, Rutherfordton and beyond! We also continue to explode along the SC & NC coast. There are so many new families moving here from other areas of the United States. Can you really blame them though? It's the best place EVER!
It is still Homeland's main core value to help anyone and everyone achieve home ownership. We have been working with some clients for six months or better helping them position themselves to buy.... and we love it! With interest rates at historical lows, now is the time to make the leap!
Homeland Realty Group stands ready to assist you with all of your real estate needs! Stay safe and healthy!

Breaking News! Fannie Mae forecasts rates to be below 2.9% early 2021.
That was the headline across all of my news feeds and blogs that I follow yesterday morning. Those rates are crazy low! But did you know that just a little over a month ago, they were already that low? I had two clients lock-in rates below 3%... for 30 years... one was a first time homebuyer. Granted, that was only for a short period. The rates started ticking back up into the 3's. (My understanding from mortgage industry leaders that they went back up because of the influx of homeowners refinancing?) Who knows. I certainly do not claim to be a mortgage guru. I have my circle of mortgage friends that I can connect you with there.
Here is the deal, y'all.
Let's say rates do fall this low again towards the end of the year or early 2021.
Let's say your credit isn't where it needs to be or you just don't know where to start.
That is where the positioning comes in. That is where I come in.
Now is the time to position yourself, preparing for your future. I may not be a mortgage guru, but I am a certified credit specialist and have helped many a buyer position themselves.... cleaning up their credit and getting them qualified to purchase a home. All at no charge. (So stop paying that $49 a month fee for someone to help you do something you can do yourself!)
So let's get you positioned! Homeland Realty Group is here to help! Just reach out!
Stay safe and healthy my friends,

Why is Homeland Realty Group’s porch ceiling painted Haint blue?
Other than the fact that we think haint blue is soo pretty, there are other reasons why we chose to paint our porch ceiling this color. Haint blue is a collection of pale shades of blue-green that are traditionally used to paint porch ceilings in the southern United States. The tradition originated with the Gullah people in Georgia and South Carolina. The Gullah ( or Geechee people), who were descendants of central and west African slaves, painted their doors, windows frames, shutters, and their porch ceilings blue as a means of protection. They believed that the color would act as a sort of repellant for “haints,” or spirits of the dead, who may try to enter their homes. Also, summer days seem to last longer when afternoons are spent on the porch, and a pale blue ceiling overhead helps extend the daylight into dusk. Blue ceilings are also said to deter birds from nesting there and helps keep bees, wasps and other insects away. Whatever the reason, we LOVE our haint blue porch ceiling and spend every available moment “porch sitting” to enjoy the view. From all of us at Homeland Realty Group, we hope you are enjoying your springtime with family and are “porch sitting” at every opportunity.
