Before Interstate 485 opened to traffic, there was no Pineville — at least, no Pineville as it’s known today. As people began to pass through Pineville regularly, though, businesses began to take advantage of the cheap property available on either side of the highway. If you’ve driven through Pineville in recent years, you know what came next: shopping, and lots of it. The town is home to, among other establishments, Carolina Place Mall, a 1.1-million-square-foot retail haven.
One might suspect that this type of booming corporate expansion would drive residents out of Pineville, but the opposite is true. In fact, between 2000 and 2010, the population more than doubled. The highway, of course, is one explanation for the influx of residents, too. Pineville’s close situation to the downtown Charlotte area makes it an attractive home base for those who work in the city but wish to live a quieter lifestyle. It could take as little as 20 minutes to get from Pineville to Charlotte, making it an easy drive to make five days a week. Pineville is also close to the South Carolina border, giving residents quick access to work and play in The Palmetto State.
For many, Pineville represents the perfect middle ground between a linked-in metropolis and a slow-paced, easy-living town. If you fall into that category, then it might be time to get in touch with a mortgage broker who can help you get into the Pineville home of your dreams. A mortgage broker makes the buying process easier and, therefore, less stressful for you. He or she works with both you and the bank in order to obtain the best possible mortgage for both parties. First, the broker will request information regarding your credit, income, job, etc. This will allow the broker to decide the proper loan for which to apply. Once all of the paperwork is submitted, he or she will work with both you and the bank to make sure everyone is on the same page before anything is signed into action.
Clearly, your mortgage broker has to be someone who you can trust, as well as someone who is familiar with the area in which you want to purchase a home. If Pineville, NC, is your future home, then Scott Hastings is your mortgage broker. An expert in the greater Charlotte area, he will work hard to get you fair rates on the mortgage for which you qualify. He’ll guide you through every step of the process, except for the last step — you should be fine to turn the keys of your new home all on your own. Contact him today via phone or email to get started.
