In addition, the survey revealed one positive outcome related to the current housing market – homeowners are far more knowledgeable about mortgages. Only 8 percent of homeowners didn’t know whether they have a fixed-rate or adjustable-rate loan, compared to 26 percent two years ago.
The survey underscores the value homeowners place on their houses, both financially and socially.
Susan Ackerson, President of the Marco Island Area Association of Realtors®, agrees home is where the heart is, especially on Marco Island with its 3.5 miles of white sand beach, golf, tennis, world class fishing, boating, private airstrip and crimson sunsets.
Now is a wonderful time to buy. Inventory on the island is down from last month but new listings are coming on the market. Mortgage rates are low. Make Marco Island the place where your heart is. Our beaches are pristine. See you in the sand.
