real estate: Easter Sunday in Saint Peters, Mo - 04/06/10 12:31 PM
Easter Sunday in Saint Peters Mo. The weather has been good for nearly everone to have the yard feshly mowed. Smells great, looks good, and shows neighborhood pride. The churches are packed for Easter Sunday and dressed with the fresh spring colors. The streets of Saint Peters seem to be lined with the best of the spring flowering trees. The houses in my subdivision of Cave Springs Estates are lined with cars from all the family gatherings on Easter. Almost enough steady breeze to fly a kite. Buying a house and living in a subdivision like Cave Springs Estates near churches (0 comments)

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, particularly when it comes to buying a home. Features that attract one home-buyer may repel another.
However, the one feature of interest to every home-buyer is price. Getting the most home for your money is paramount. The real problem is figuring out whether that fixer-upper on one street is a better buy than the home in next-to-new condition two blocks away. That’s why knowing what to look for before you buy can save you time, energy and money (1 comments)

real estate: Reasons for buying a NEW home - 08/13/08 06:37 PM
Several months ago there were articles in the media about buying a new home. At the time many builders were scrambling to get the cash needed to pay their subcontractors. The articles didn't say that inventory homes were the best bargain in town, but they were in many cases. Now the biggest discounts are past. This does not mean that I do not take my clients to look at new construction. It is a great choice for many people. A growing family that needs more space. If it is a three car garage for adult toys or a more private bedroom (1 comments)
real estate: The IRS and Debt Cancelled on Your Mortgage - 07/27/08 11:56 AM
When a Short Sale is done on your property, to avoid foreclosure, a part of the mortgage debt is is not applied to the sale. Thus, the sale that the Bank accepts is Short of the outstanding note balance. The Internal Revenue Service by law requires knowledge of that short amount. The Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act of 2007 was enacted on December 20, 2007. When you have money that you owe, forgiven or cancelled our government has long recognized that as taxable income. Take a look at http://www.irs.gov/individuals/article/0,,id=179414,00.html. Notice that there is no straight forward yes or no answer provided for (3 comments)

real estate: Do You Want To Sell Your House and Home? - 07/26/08 10:11 AM
If it is still your home, and not just a house, you should probably stay in your home till the market changes. The debt to income ratio and high credit scores needed to borrow money are reducing the number of buyers in the market, at the same time that inventory is increasing. If you do not have to sell, then take your home off the market and save yourself the stress you are feeling just about now. Reasons to sell: 1. Relocation 2. Divorce, Death, Illness 3. Pre foreclosure. If your rates are changing, employment status changes, or health are going (0 comments)
real estate: When Do You Stop Giving Your Client Information - 05/16/08 05:27 PM
If your client is evaluating the ecconomics of relocating he is also judging different areas around town. That is easy with our software. We can show for almost any area compairison between the number of houses, days on market, numbers for 2 bedrooms compared with 3, 4, and 5 bedroom configurations.

That area has a lot of foreclosures as shown by providing a list of actives, contingent, pending, and solds. The client then asks about hedging on the (0 comments)
real estate: What I don't know about real estate investment - 01/24/08 08:18 PM
Not all that long ago people were investing in real estate that had no idea what cap rate or cash flow had to do with it. A cap rate of 2 or 3 was fine since all that mattered was being able to leverage into the building for three years and get out with 30% or more appreciation. Stated income and adjustable rates and interest only causing many of those folks with multi family buildings to be up side down now or looking at loosing the buildings. So place an ad that says......
Well, we have the tools. Get them to refinance. (0 comments)
