...as much as you can.There is some basic Real Estate lingo that all buyers and sellers should learn prior to entering the Real Estate & Mortgage marketplace. The Infographic below is intended for buyers but I find sellers need to know the same terminology as a buyer and vice versa. Key Terms To Know When Buying a Home    Some Highlights Buying a home is a major transaction that can seem even more complex when you don’t understand the terms used throughout the process. If you’re looking to become a homeowner this year, it’s important to know these housing terms and how they relate to the current market so you feel confident throughout the homebuying process. Work with a trusted real estate professional who can answer any questions as they come up. Credit to KCM for the infographic

The down payment is a sticking point with many buyers. With escalating home prices and interest rates, of recent, it's easy to see why buyers are concerned when looking at the conventional rule of thumb being 20% down. That's not the case though, as there are programs and mortgage options that exist that do not require a 20% down payment. If you live in a qualified rural area the USDA has a program with no money down. FHA is as little as 3% and the VA does provide no down payment loans to veterans. So, don't get too wound up as there ARE avenues available that can be of great assistance to buyers. Enjoy the article below.Wondering How Much You Need To Save for a Down Payment?   If you’re getting ready to buy your first home, you’re likely focused on saving up for everything that purchas...

Every once in a while I get a question about how a Rent to Own home works. I usually have to give myself a refresher since I have never been in a Rent to Own transaction. While doing some online reading I came across an article in Realty Times that I thought I would share regarding Rent I own, This article is very basic but I hope I hope it provides you with the information to better understand it, As Always, seek guidance from a Real Estate Professional as well as a Real Estate attorney before venturing out in your own.  How Does a Rent-to-Own Home Work? WRITTEN BY ASHLEY SUTPHINPOSTED ON MONDAY, 19 DECEMBER 2022       A rent-to-own home can be a viable option for some people if maybe a mortgage isn’t right for them at this moment or wouldn’t be available to them. Rent-to-own homes can...

It's a new year, so, we've been seeing a new set of predictions or expectations for 2023. My expectations for 2023 are simple and accurate. Expectation #1 - People will sell their homes and other real estate.Expectation #2 - People will purchase real estate.Expectation #3 = People will still need the services of Real Estate professionals.Now, others with far more data than I, have provided their thoughts for the housing market in 2023. I such organization's thoughts are below.What To Expect from the Housing Market in 2023   The 2022 housing market has been defined by two key things: inflation and rapidly rising mortgage rates. And in many ways, it’s put the market into a reset position. As the Federal Reserve (the Fed) made moves this year to try to lower inflation, mortgage rates more ...

Does Covid Relief Act Protect from Foreclosure and/or Eviction?Covid Cares - Foreclosure Relief Eviction Relief - Or Not?This week I saw a property come back on the market after it was under agreement. It was a property that some of our buyers had an earlier agreement in place to buy. The property is for sale as a "flip" by an experienced foreclosure buyer. The buyers we were representing  found their home inspection had to many issues so they did not buy the property. When I saw the property on the market again, I called the agent to see why the property came back on the market with the next buyers. The agent stated that a title issue caused the buyers to rescind the agreement this time. When I got the agent talking, they stated that the second buyers' attorney had the opinion that the...

I know, I know, but it's true. On November 6th at 2:00 a.m. our clocks revert to the Fall Back position by 1 hour. It's not my favorite day of the year. I wish the whole country would go on the same time standard like AZ and a couple and a couple of other states.I'm going to provide a comprehensive tutorial on how to change your time on the many devices we have now. Keep it in a safe place so you where to find it in the Spring. Follow these steps so you are not late to a listing or showing appointment OR, most importantly, a closing 😁

Are home prices falling faster than in 2006? Locally?I just read an article in Fortune that is titled, "Home prices are falling faster now than in 2006—Redfin’s CEO just revealed why". It is a relatively long read as articles go. And, it has some big names included in the interviewee list. But I think the last sentence is more honest than the title, "Simply put: Home price outlooks are all over the place."Why not make the last sentence the starting point? Why not say that all real estate is local, and although there are some areas that are seeing corrections, there are many areas that are doing very well - still. Oh I know why - negative news sells - duh.As a graduate of the Suffolk University Economics department with a citation for academic excellence from Dr. Tuerck, I know first han...

Besides hiring a Professional Licensed Realtor® the next most important step to purchasing a home is being pre-qualified and/or pre-approved for a mortgage. A serious seller rarely considers a buyer that has not presented an offer that includes a pre-qualification/pre-approval letter. Don't wait to the last minute to accomplish this important step.Pre-Approval Is a Critical First Step on Your Homebuying Journey   If you’re planning to buy a home this year, one of the first steps on your journey is getting pre-approved. Especially in today’s market when mortgage rates are higher than they were just a few months ago, getting a mortgage pre-approval can be a game changer. Here’s why. What Is Pre-Approval? To better understand why pre-approval is key, it’s important to know what pre-approva...

Sell Your House Before the Holidays?    As you look ahead to the winter season, you’re likely making plans and thinking about what you want to achieve before the year ends. One of those key decision points could be whether or not you want to move this year. If the location or size of your current home no longer meets your needs, finding a house that better suits your lifestyle may be a top priority for you. But with today’s cooling housing market, is it really a good time to sell your house, or should you wait? If you’re ready to make your decision, here are three reasons you may want to consider selling before the holidays. 1. Get One Step Ahead of Other Sellers Typically, in the residential real estate market, homeowners are less likely to list their houses toward the end of the year....
