With close proximity to the beach, beautiful weather year-round, and friendly people, the Grand Strand area is an ideal place for many northerners looking to relocate.
On a recent segment of Living Local Carolina, we sat down with Carolina Trust member, Phil Adikes, who recently relocated from New York and built his dream home with the help of the Carolina Trust Mortgage department.
Phil and his wife were initially referred to a lender who offered them a rate much higher than what they were expecting. After doing some research online, Phil realized that Carolina Trust was advertising a rate much lower than the lender he had initially been referred to. With just a few weeks until their closing date, the Adikes were skeptical of restarting the lending process.
However, our mortgage team was able to get the Adikes approved in less than 48 hours at a lower rate. After doing the math, they were able to save approximately $80,000 over the life of their mortgage by using Carolina Trust as their lender.
