3 New Reasons to Retire at Lake Oconee


Lake Oconee Retirement Options

Retire to Lake Oconee

Lake Oconee is a prime destination for retirees, or future retirees! Many people buy a second home here in midlife with the intention of retiring here. When living in a single family home becomes problematic, people choose to live in apartments where assistance is available, yet where independence is possible, also. I have detailed the opportunities that Lake Oconee provides for life stages in previous posts, stating reasons that Lake Oconee is a Good Place to Retire and New Adult Communities.  This year we are happy to welcome 3 new facilities that will make the Lake Oconee community one in which all future senior living needs will be better met.

1. The Opening of St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Hospital

The whole community welcomed the opening of this beautiful 25 bed hospital in November 2013. The design is user-friendly and utilizes local art work in its decor. There is a built-in plan for expansion in the future. More Details

The Lake Oconee Community has long been served by the assisted living development of Savannah Court and several local nursing homes. This year the addition of two new assisted living communities under construction in the heart of the lake area will provide even more choices for living styles.

 

2. The Harbor at Harmony Crossing

This development provides luxury living and memory care. It is located in Putnam County near the Harmony Crossing shopping center. More Details

Jim and I moved here when our two children were still living at home in 1990, and loved it so much that we have decided that this will be our future retirement place. We have seen so many improvements added to the community, and highly recommend it as a place to live the rest of your life!

A Lake Oconee Day at the Masters


Masters Golf Hole

Masters Golf Hole

Today Jim and I had the pleasure of being  “patrons” at the Masters Golf Tournament in nearby Augusta. We left home at Lake Oconee about 9 AM, and were surprised to find ourselves at the Washington Road exit just outside Augusta National about an hour later. There was no traffic delay, and we quickly found a parking space in the free parking lot!  No wonder people love to stay at Lake Oconee when they are attending the Masters, it is such a simple commute from our relaxed community to the hectic Masters pace of Augusta with its scramble for accommodations and restaurant reservations . After walking to the Main Gate of Augusta National, we prepared for the now-standard American process of passing a security search. We had to remove our ticket so it could be scanned, and submit our purses and wallets to be x-rayed. I even had to lift my fashionable golf hat to prove I wasn’t concealing contraband there, either! No phones or cameras were allowed, so I am using older pictures taken during previous practice rounds in which cameras were allowed.

As always, once inside the gate, we admired the immaculate and beautiful grounds of the Augusta National Golf Club. The azaleas were not quite 100% in bloom today, but maybe they will be before Sunday. All the viewing stands, appear to have a fresh coat of paint, every blade of grass is cut to perfection. The gate, food, and merchandise attendants are smiling and greet all with a “Welcome to the Masters”.

After selecting a pairing sheet, we started our Masters day by sitting in the viewing stands, and watching the professional golfers warm up. We were shown to seats in the plush viewing area as we would have been at a theatrical event. After watching several young men hit impossibly perfect shots, Jim commented about the precision and length of the shots that the pros can hit.

Children Wait for Autographs

Children Wait for Autographs

Leaving the practice area, we got a glimpse of the children waiting in the designated area set aside for them to get autographs from the golfers. Augusta National is very family-friendly, and the atmosphere is one of quiet appreciation of the game of golf. The Masters allows ticketed patrons to bring one child between the ages of 8 to 16 to the tournament free. The child must be registered at the entrance.

Masters' Food

Masters Food

We had the best pimento cheese sandwiches for lunch! Even being a proud pimento-cheese maker myself,  I am always amazed at the famous Masters sandwich still made on white bread, and still sold for $1.50! We found our way to the Number 4, par three hole viewing stands and enjoyed watching the players manuever their balls to, and around the slick, slanted green and into the hole. Our favorite player there was Matt Kuchar, a favorite son of Georgia. There was not a cloud in the sky, and the temperature was hovering around 70, a perfect day to watch and play golf.

On the way back to the entrance, we stopped to observe Justin Rose hit his second shot that had missed the fairway off his tee shot. The “rough” at Augusta National looks better than our lawn. We wondered if he could hit over some tall pine trees to reach the green. No problem, he asked for an iron, hit the ball solidly, and perfectly steered the ball over the trees. After purchasing Masters hats for family and friends, we made our way back to the parking lot and successfully found our car. Driving through an old Augusta neighborhood back to I-20 and home, I was in awe of the beautiful homes and lawns in bloom that we saw.

The trip back to the Lake Oconee area was pleasant, and we were so thankful that we got to enjoy another day at the Masters Golf  Tournament.

Masters 2014-Buy at Lake Oconee


Azaleas at the Masters

Azaleas at the Masters

Lake Oconee residents spruce up the neighborhood around this time of the year, and you can feel the excitement in the air. People are working hard to replenish the pine straw, paint the outdoor trim, and put out the directional signs to welcome the influx of Masters “patrons” who prefer to stay at Lake Oconee, a convenient 80 miles or so to the east of Augusta. Many visitors are guests of Lake Oconee residents, and many are renters. Golf lovers like to play 18 holes here at the lake, and attend the Masters during the other half of the day. Restaurants are adding hours to their service, and we are expecting an increase in traffic!

Join the fun, and be a resident by the 2015 Masters.  Prices for homes are still low, the big uptick of real estate prices has not come to Lake Oconee, yet. Loan rates remain low, too. Jim and I have some special bargains this spring on Lake Oconee properties that have been reduced

How to Determine a Lake Oconee Morgage Limit


Below is a reblog about a common sense way to determine how much a buyer can comfortably spend on a new home. This advice suggests that you consider your lifestyle costs, as well as your income.

Finding Your Magic Number: How Much House Can You Afford?

The first step to buying a house or condominium is figuring out how much you can spend.  Coming up with the number is an exercise in basic math.  You look at your income, your debt, your monthly expenses, and also your comfort level.

Whenever I begin to work with a new client, I have them answer two questions:  “How much do you want to pay each month for your mortgage, and how much do you have available for your down payment and closing costs?” And, using the current interest rates, I translate that into a mortgage amount plus their cash on hand to determine the home purchase price that will work.

Then I send them to one of my favorite lenders to get pre-approved for their mortgage.  Interestingly, the lender virtually always will agree to lend the buyers a lot more than they would be comfortable paying back!

So my advice is to come up with the numbers for your monthly housing costs.  These include:

  • mortgage payment
  • property taxes
  • condo or home owners association fees
  • homeowners’ insurance
  • utilities

Then look at other financial commitments you might have.  Some example are:

  • Credit Card debt
  • Car payments
  • Student loan payment
  • Alimony or child support

Then you will need to think about your overall life style.  Do you have children who will be headed to college any time soon?  Do you send money to help support elderly parents?  Do you like to eat out a lot or travel to exotic lands?  While your lender might not take these expenses into account, you probably should.

What Happens to Lake Oconee Home Sales During Recent Shutdown?


Loan Approval

Worried About Loans as the Government Shuts Down?

These days many people are asking me if the closing of homes at Lake Oconee will be stopped by the U.S. Government’s recent shutdown.  The best answer that I have found is on one of our real estate blogs written by a mortgage broker. His post is as follows:

Government Shutdown…What happens to my FHA closing Tuesday? 

Let’s pretend that it does not matter which side of the aisle you are on. This is not left or right, red or blue, democrat or republican. This is our collective government and I keep hearing both sides say this is what the people want. What the people want is for those elected to show up at work and do your job. What the people want is to not be told what they want. Grow up, shut up, and show up at work to do what you were elected to do. Keep the government running!

As my blog is primarily a real estate/mortgage message I take this opportunity to make you aware of what is possible in a shutdown means to real estate agents and their clients.

Fortunately while 90% of all loans are backed by the federal government a great portion of those are backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and while those two entities are government-run they are funded from the fees they charge. Unfortunately The FHA does not work the same way and while the number of FHA loans have fallen off recently the FHA accounts for a large percentage of the loans currently being processed (roughly 60,000 per month). During a shutdown the FHA will be unable to insure loans and their staff will be unavailable to underwrite and/or approve new loans. According to HUD in the event of a shutdown only 350 of the 9,300 employees would be available to work.

This so called economic recovery is being pushed (not pulled) by a small housing recovery. Maybe, just maybe we could stop pointing fingers and laying blame based on party affiliation and not snuff out the small flame by delaying closings on FHA loans in the coming week.

If you have an FHA loan closing be prepared as I am not certain anyone currently knows what to do.  By Peter Buchsbaum, Gateway Funding, Website: http://www.peterbuchsbaum.com
