Mortgage interest rates ticked a bit higher in February, but remain below their February 2020 levels. Interest rates may rise a bit further in coming weeks, but according to Freddie Mac chief economist Sam Khater, “while there are multiple temporary factors driving up rates, the underlying economic fundamentals point to rates remaining in the low 3 percent range for the year.” With rates still at historically low levels, home sales are unlikely to be significantly impacted, though higher rates do impact affordability. ~ Charleston Trident Association of REALTORS® (CTAR)

Agent Spotlight: Joy Millar
“I don’t think I have ever met a REALTOR® that is more dedicated, responsive, and pleasant to deal with than Joy Millar. In an intensely competitive and skyrocketing market, Joy was the difference between us getting a truly special house, and being priced out of the market. Her knowledge of Seabrook Island combined with her contacts made the impossible happen. She is an absolutely delightful person, and I cannot recommend her services highly enough.” ~ Paul M.
