Investment Property, York PA

by The Pilgrim Team

With college starting back up it could be time to consider buying an Real Estate Investment property for your child to live in rather than paying for a dorm room. With interest rates being so low it makes sense to invest in something that you can later sell or hold onto as a rental property rather than pay rent for a room.

York College, Penn State York, Gettysburg College, HACC, and York Technical Institute are some of the campuses nearby.

Pilgrim Team can help you find just the right property that could work for you. Contact us to discuss this opportunity further.

Should You Pay Off Your Mortgage?

by The Pilgrim Team

As a homeowner, once you have purchased the perfect home, you dream of the day you make the final Home Financing payment and truly own your home. Paying off your Home Financing if you are able to is a good idea for the obvious reasons, one being that you will save thousands of dollars in interest. If you obtained a 30 year loan you will most likely pay more than twice the purchase price of the home before you actually own it.

Of course paying off your Home Financing gives you the satisfaction of actually owning your home. In addition, the mortgage payment is typically the highest of a household's monthly expense, so not having to worry about that each month can bring peace of mind, especially in the case of a loss of a job or retirement. 

Some financial advisors do however advise that paying off your Home Financing is a bad financial move. Some arguments that the money should be invested as to gain a  higher return in the long run. While this advise might sound good in theory there is no guarantee that a higher return can be achieved. 

Paying off your Home Financing has many benefits, but the question many homeowners ask is "How?", especially in a difficult economy. Below are some strategies you can use to help you get to your payoff goal!

  • Keep an eye on interest rates and, if they fall, consider refinancing. If you can reduce your interest rate, shorten the term of your loan or both, refinancing can be an excellent strategy. 
  • Overpay a fixed amount every month. Even if you can afford to pay an 5-20% of your total payment, it can add up to be 1-2 extra payments a year.
  • Biweekly Home Financing payment plans. By paying half of your monthly mortgage payment every two weeks, you end up making the equivalent of an extra payment every year.  Instead of making 12 monthly payments, you’ll make 52/2 = 26 biweekly payments — the equivalent of 13 monthly payments. This will shave years off your mortgage. Moreover, if you’re paid on a biweekly basis, this approach might match your budgeting process better than monthly payments.

In a difficult economy paying your regular monthly obligations can be difficult, and it can be very challenging to try to make any additional payments. They key is to make an attempt, every little bit counts and gets you closer to your goal!
