Fabulous Fall Apartment Decorating Tips

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, October 11, 2018

Abberly Pointe, Beaufort, SCFall is on the way. Although we’re sad to see summer go, we can’t wait for the aromas of pumpkin pie, the crunch of leaves under our feet and all the beautiful colors of fall. As this new season arrives, there’s no better time to be inspired by the latest seasonal apartment decorating trends. Let’s take a look at some of the most sought-after designs!

New Neutrals:

Autumn is known for its bright hues of yellow, orange and red. As noted by HGTV, colors and contrast are giving way to neutrals this season. Going colorless provides the opportunity to really experiment with rich textures and fun shapes. And layering similar neutral tones on top of each other is an easy way to let your creativity flow!

Pumped About Pumpkins:

Nothing says fall like pumpkin – whether it’s the mounds of pumpkins outside the stores or the pumpkin spice lattes brewing in our favorite coffee houses. But did you know pumpkins are an easy item to use for decorating? Country Living says that you can incorporate a pumpkin as a centerpiece at your next gathering. Try adding a lace doily to brighten it up or decorate it with fall foliage. The décor possibilities are endless!

Supersize It:

Chunky sweaters. Cozy scarves. Big coats. Autumn is known for its oversized fashion items and the trend is also inspiring home and apartment décor. This fall you can expect to see oversized everything! Make your apartment or home feel extra cozy with chunky knit blankets and pillows, large comfy chairs and super-sized wall-art.

It’s how you live that matters and love being able to provide you with simple yet beautiful décor inspirations for your apartment in Beaufort, SC. We hope these ideas will help you make the most of the season and feel more at home.

It is Better to Rent Than Buy

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, September 06, 2018

Abberly Pointe, Beaufort, SCIt is easily the question most asked by anyone moving into their first home or downsizing into retirement. Should I buy or should I rent? For nearly a decade the answer has been buy. The crash in home prices, combined with record-low mortgage rates made buying and owning a home both cheaper than renting one and a better investment.

Now, the tide has turned.

Fast-rising home prices and higher mortgage rates have shifted the calculation to rent. The monthly costs of buying and owning a home that you occupy are up 14 percent over the past year, more than three times the annual increase in rent rates nationally. Rents are up just 4 percent. The number of local housing markets where it is cheaper to rent than buy is growing by the day.

Even setting aside big upfront expenses like a down payment, rising month-by-month costs are likely keeping many people from purchasing. Today only 41 percent of people live in a county where the median income family can afford to buy a home at the median list price, and affordability declined significantly over the past year.

Home prices fell dramatically following the financial crisis and the subprime mortgage crash. Millions of homes went into foreclosure and were sold off at bargain-basement prices. Home values finally bottomed out in 2012 and then began to take off. In the last three years, the gains accelerated dramatically, and now homes in most of the nation are worth more than they were at the inflated peak of the housing boom in 2006.

It's normal. Housing is an early cycle sector. Interest rates are low, incomes start to grow, so in an early cycle environment you can buy, but in a later cycle, interest rates go up, home prices go up, it's harder to buy.

The recent acceleration in home prices has been due to a supply imbalance in the market: too much demand and too little supply. That has shifted the equation back to rent, even though rents have increased a lot in the last few years.

According to July home and rent prices, buying a home was cheaper than renting in just 35 percent of the nation's counties. That is down sharply from 44 percent just one year ago.

And it's not just cheaper to rent, it may also now be a better investment. Renting and reinvesting the savings from renting, on average, will outperform owning and building home equity, in terms of wealth creation. That is the first time renting outperforms buying since 2010.

In 16 of the 23 major metropolitan markets covered in the research, renting is a better investment than buying.

So what does all this mean for the wealth of average Americans and the health of the housing market?

Since home ownership has historically been an important source of household wealth creation, it could be problematic if this trend continues for too long. Still, even in places where renting is currently more affordable, rising home prices provide wealth-building opportunity for home buyers.

Since home ownership has historically been an important source of household wealth creation, it could be problematic if this trend continues for too long.

As for home prices, the shift pulling demand away from buying and toward renting will likely cool overheated home prices. In fact, that is already happening. For the first time in several years, in July, the supply of homes for sale was not lower compared to the previous year. It was flat. In addition, while home prices are still rising, they are rising at a slower pace, meaning sellers are starting to see demand fall off a bit, as buyers hit an affordability wall.

Absent some major outlying disaster, home prices are highly unlikely to fall, at least not nationally.

Beaufort is a "Best Places to Retire in the US"

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, August 09, 2018

Abberly Pointe, Beaufort, SCWhere are the best places to retire in the U.S.? According to the absolute best cities and towns for older Americans have good weather, access to health care, low property taxes, and a certain “wow” factor. Throw in access to adult education, cultural activities, job opportunities for older Americans, low housing costs and income-tax rates, low crime rate, and good walkability and livability — and you get a list of both well-known and lesser-known cities and towns that retirees might fancy.

6. Beaufort, S.C.

Beaufort, a city of just 12,000, is described as a “big retirement destination,” especially for those who like charm, history and golf (you won’t be far from Hilton Head). This 304 acres of charming town in South Carolina’s Low Country has been designated a National Historic Landmark. Plus, Beaufort has a diverse economy — the University of South Carolina has a branch here. Another advantage: South Carolina is an income-tax-friendly state for retirees. Of course, there are some blemishes: if you fancy living in a big city, this might not be the place for you; it is a small town. (It was once named the “Best Small Southern Town” by Southern Living magazine.) People looking for urban excitement might find this golf- and boating-oriented area boring after a while.
