The Benefits of FHA Loans - 10/28/09 11:51 AM
You may have heard of FHA loans or FHA Mortgages - but do you know what it's about? An FHA Loan is a loan that is guaranteed by the Federal Government. It allows a buyer to put down as little as 3.5% on a property, which is very helpful in our market where home prices can be high. FHA Loans are very common in our area, especially since the zero-down lending market has disappeared, and since the Government raised the limit to as high as $625,000 in some areas. Other benefits of FHA loans are that they offer relaxed credit score (0 comments)

The Real Estate Market: Local vs. National - 10/21/09 02:42 PM
You may have heard lately on the national news that the Real Estate Market is flat. Or you may have heard that the Real Estate Market is down, or not doing well. But since Real Estate is sold on the local level, what's happening in other areas just doesn't apply here. I've been working with a family the past few weeks - they are looking to purchase a single family home with an in-law suite. They want what the area has to offer - good schools, good location, and a nice community. We have place bids on three different homes in (3 comments)

Recently I got an email from a friend that told the sad story of a couple whose home had burned down. The fire investigator, according to the email, was able to determine that the fire had been caused by a Glade plug in air freshener.
Since October is National Fire Prevention Month, I thought this would be good information to share with you. My first step, though, was to check to make sure that the story was true. There is a great website for that, www.snopes.com.
As I suspected, according to snopes, plug in air fresheners pose no (0 comments)

The Writing on the Wall - Short Sales and Foreclosures - 10/07/09 10:21 AM
Lately I have been helping a family purchase a home. Their current home is already sold, and we found the perfect house for them - it's in a great neighborhood that they want to be in, and it has a large in law suite. Just before we wrote our offer, the Listing Agent told me the home could go into foreclosure. When I asked what that meant, she said the Sellers were just a payment behind. After receiving our offer, the Listing Agent called me to tell me that the Sellers couldn't come up with a counter offer, because they didn't (1 comments)

The weather is nice...The leaves are changing...It's football season...The Ravens are winning...And... The pests are out. Here is a tale of my very pesty week: Bed Bugs: Literally, a pain in the (fill in the blank). I thought this was just a saying, or a made up term. But they're for real, and they really do bite. Getting rid of them is a major deal. It's not something I could do on my own - I had to call an exterminator. My tenant had to discard his mattress and pillow, bag up all of his clothes and move (2 comments)
