Don't Overpay for Your Property - 02/28/11 10:33 AM
Its amazing to me how many people actually overpay for a property, especially in this market because they are not informed or they are not working with a Realtor who can provide them with the correct information about the property. Most of the time the buyers that overpay are the ones that are trying to get a great deal! Whether its a foreclosure property, a short sale or a regular sale you have to be informed and be working with a Realtor who knows the market and can give you the correct information.

Many people are currently renting with the hopes of building credit and buying a home sometime in the near future.

Mortgage Rates on the Rise - 02/17/11 01:29 PM
Mortgage rates are ticking up slightly and this trend is expected to continue throughout the year. This is important if you are a borderline buyer as just a little increase will really effect your payment. Keep an eye on this and if you are a serious buyer its time to wrap it up and take advantage of some of the best buyer conditions of all time.
