Oklahoma City Homes Can Sell Despite Statistics - 10/29/10 10:38 PM
Do not let fear of a down market and less than encouraging statistics deter you from selling your Oklahoma City home. Many people feel with the tax credit ending, and no renewal as of yet, a lack of home buyers may be the result. However, there are many people who DO sell their homes successfully and have been able to approach the situation with patience and determination, resulting in success. The first and maybe the most important decision you will have to make is to find the perfect broker. Many sellers select the agency with the highest amount of homes listed. (3 comments)
Recognized as one of the "10 Great Neighborhoods for 2010," Paseo residents should be proud of the revitalization and welcome changes in their area. Residents are thrilled their home was awarded this honor by the American Planning Association, because this area was less than desirable to live in just three decades ago.Susan Miller, Oklahoma City city planner, is excited by the news and feels the city's objective to make changes has been successful. "Hopefully the Paseo can build off this distinction and bring more residents and businesses into the area," she said.This area attracts artistic expression and activities, a variety (8 comments)
How to Sell Your Premium Oklahoma City Property in Today's Market - 10/21/10 11:23 PM
You have a beautiful home with many added features. The sun room is relaxing, the vaulted ceilings are elegant. With a "premium property" like this, you may want to overprice, which will scare perspective buyers away. Today is a strong buyers market, even though there are many well-groomed homes out there for sale. Homes that show well and are in top condition will field the most offers, but pricing the home too high will stop the sale. "In most areas, the pressure is still 100 percent on the sellers because there's a lot of property on the market, including foreclosures," says Tom (0 comments)
New Help From HUD Awaits Oklahoma City Homeowners - 10/17/10 08:05 PM
Many people in Oklahoma City and elsewhere have fallen behind on their mortgages, but here is now help for those who have lost their jobs and have mortgages to pay. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has created a new loan program available in 32 states and Puerto Rico. HUD officials have announced the program will offer a declining balance, deferred payment "bridge loan" (non-recourse, subordinate loan with zero interest) for up to $50,000 to assist eligible homeowners with payments of arrearages, including delinquent taxes and insurance plus up to 24 months of monthly payments on their mortgage (0 comments)
Falling Interest Rates a Good Incentive to Buy Your Blanchard Home - 10/07/10 05:22 PM
Wondering if now is the time to buy? With interest rates falling, the answer is "yes." The rates offer a good incentive to buy your Blanchard home. Last week there were reports of interest rates dropping as low as 3.875%. Most rates are hovering between 4.25% and 4.500% for 20 year loans for borrowers who have a good credit history. Looking for a shorter loan so your home is paid off quicker is a great idea if you can pay a little more per month. A 15 year loan can be had between 3.625% and 3.875%. Remember however, those with commendable (2 comments)
It Does Not Have to Be Spring or Summer to Sell Your Moore Home - 10/07/10 05:22 PM
You know you want to upgrade to a larger home in a more desirable area, but you are afraid your home will not sell during the cooler months, traditionally the slow season in real estate. This could not be further from the truth. Forget the common wisdom: It Does Not Have to Be Spring or Summer to Sell Your Moore Home.There are too many people out there not fulfilling their dream because they are afraid to put that "FOR SALE" sign on their front lawn. Ronald Phipps, president-elect of the National Association of Realtors says many people have are waiting for the (3 comments)
Market Gaining Strength - 10/06/10 09:54 AM
Although you wouldn't be able to tell by the local or national media, the market is gaining strength. Take some time and look at Trulia. You will notice pending sales are up for our market. What this means as that buyers are starting to come out in droves and the lagging market has pinned up demand. Although we are not seeing increases in sales prices yet, we will. Once there is more demand from buyers than the current inventory allows prices will adjust. Let me ask you this if you don't believe me. Have you seen any new construction lately? Of course, you (2 comments)
Rural Development Loan Can Help You Buy Your Norman Home - 10/06/10 09:46 AM
Can a Rural Development Loan help you buy your Norman home? What is this? Well, the state decides where the best development for the state would be and therefore makes incentives for people to live there. How does it help you? Well, if you are interested in an area that qualifies for rural development you can get assistance with your down payment. Therefore, if you are a new buyer and want a home we can basically get you in a home with no money down. Seems pretty good to me. I don't know why any buyer that has this education wouldn't buy (0 comments)
Financing Your Norman Home - 10/06/10 09:39 AM
How should your finance your Norman home? Although this is a large topic, I think it boils down to just one question. Should you be buying a house? Whether you are looking at owner occupied or an investment property, you need to ask yourself this question. The reason? With financing the way it is can you get approved if yo have good credit. The banks will not approve you if you are not fiscally responsible and do not have the ability to make the payment and/or have money down. There are some options for you: 1. Bond or Rural Development Loans- (0 comments)
All Realtors® are the same? - 10/06/10 09:30 AM
All Realtors® are the same? Does that sound believable? I don't think so. No matter what industry you are in, there are always professionals that can make your experience better. What do you mean by better? Well, let's see, doesn't every seller want to sell for the highest price in the shortest amount of time with the least hassle? Of course, they do. So wouldn't it make sense that the better your home is marketed the better results, depending on the price, will be achieved? You need an experienced Realtor who is on top of the latest marketing for your home. Ok, (3 comments)
The Buy from the Builder Myth! - 10/06/10 09:22 AM
The Buy From the Builder myth goes something like this. Why not buy directly from the builder and cut out the realtor? That would make sense because we would then end up saving the realtors commission. Right? Wrong, buying from the builder does sometimes make sense. While the commission is an integral part of the price what makes you think the builder will come down anymore on his price because you don't use a realtor. Let me put it this way. Most builders have to watch their comparables for any neighborhood. They are not going to give you the special deal you (3 comments)
Home Values? - 10/06/10 09:15 AM
Wow, what a great time to buy. Spring is in season and the government along with various sellers have made it so easy to buy it's insane. O fcourse, you do need to have a little money down. What a shock? You are buying on average a $150,000 home and you need money down. FHA has made it very easy to buy with 3.5% down and the sellers are expecting you to ask for closing costs. The best time to invest is not always the easiest. Do you know that there will be a large transfer of wealth throught this recession? (0 comments)
Why Buy Now? - 10/06/10 09:14 AM
Why buy now? Well that is a good question. Let me address it as easily as I can. If you are looking to move up as a first time home buyer, or an investor, in my opinion, this is the best time to buy. With interest rates lower than they have ever been you will be able to buy more house than ever before. Another reason is that if you take a 150K house and figure that you will be losing 5% of what you would have got last year that equals $7,500.00. Now if you were to buy a bigger (2 comments)
