selling a home: Just when you thought it wasn't going to happen again....Central States Mortgage Closes their doors - 03/11/09 08:40 AM
Times were pretty bad early last year when banks and loan companies were closing their doors.  Things have quieted down quite a bit, so imagine the surprise when the doors were closed on a very large institution here in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.  220 people were employed there.
What a nightmare - people ready to close on their home and no loan!!
Central States Mortgage Company on Monday morning - the front doors were locked and a sign on the front door stating: Central States Mortgage has suspended operations.  Employees and customers alike were turned away.
Central States funded loans for many midwest area … (4 comments)

selling a home: WHAT - the house I want is... GONE??? - 02/10/09 08:06 AM
Home buyers today are getting used to it being a "buyers" market.
Home buyers THINK can look and look and look and make a decision when they get around to it. 
BUT CAN THEY??
The inventory is greater than it's been in many, many years.
It is the PERFECT time to buy ----  here in Wisconsin.
INTEREST RATES - They are better than most have seen in the past 40 years!
INVENTORY - Better selection than I have seen in my 20 plus year career selling homes.
PRICING - Aggressive sellers and bank owned properties have driven prices down.
AFFORDABILITY - … (14 comments)

selling a home: Are you ready to buy yet? This IS THE TRIFECTA!!!! $7500 Tax Credit too!! - 02/07/09 08:59 AM
So what is it going to take to get you off the fence?
The interest rates are lower than they've been in quite some time.  Low 5% rates for 30 year fixed.  Those are incredible rates!!!
Home prices are better than they've been in years.  Buy now - in most Milwaukee metropolitan areas the prices are LOWER than they were in 2004, 2005 and 2006!!!!
Inventory of homes to pick from is better than it's been in my career. Thats over 20 years!  I just cannot believe the prices are great, the interest rates are great and the inventory is great.

selling a home: Foreclosure properties - 01/28/09 06:51 AM
 
 
The Realtor's Association sent out the folllowing notice about showing foreclosures.  The advice comes from  REOMAC, a national non-profit trade association for the mortgage default industry.  They sent out the following advice for showing foreclosure properties...
(The first thing I found interesting is that they recommend wearing suitable shoes for RUNNING!!  First of all - it's winter - who in this area has worn shoes while showing homes in the last 3 months?  We are going on 17 days of below zero weather, and snow is EVERYWHERE!!)  This makes me notice that this isn't just for my area - it's for … (13 comments)

selling a home: 7500 Tax Credit First Time Homebuyers - 01/27/09 08:00 AM
I have written my Congressman asking that the "powers that be" look at getting a change to the current $7500 Tax Credit that was passed last year.  I feel if the credit does not have to be paid back it would help people make the move to new home ownership.
Well, a bill that would dramatically expand the 2008 home buyer tax credit has been introduced in the U.S. Senate!!! Whoopee!!
 
 The Senate Bill 253 was sponsored by Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.), would amend the tax code and would do the following:

selling a home: Buying a Home - 12/18/08 07:09 AM
The market has not been better for a buyer in a long, long time.  Not the entire time of my Real Estate Career ---dating back to 1985.
The inventory of homes available is up!  What a wonderful opportunity to have so many choices.  Pick your neighborhood, pick your favorite style, the market is full of choices!
Interest Rates.  Rates THIS WEEK have fluctuated between 4 5/8 and 5.5% Fixed .  Rates are at an all time low!  I have seen rates below 5% periodically - for a day or two at a time in the past couple of years.  2 months ago … (4 comments)

Sales of Condominiums in Brookfield show a total of 52 year to date.  This is considerably slower than the 2007 numbers.  The total for 2007 was 93 sales.  There likely will be some properties closing before year end, changing the numbers a little bit.

selling a home: Houses are selling! Don't miss this market! - 12/09/08 11:44 AM
There has been an increase in business since the election.  I am not sure what that had to do with people not buying homes, or having confidence now to buy.  But I can tell you I have had more appointments with buyers in the past few weeks than in the past few months.
I have seen more accepted offers in the MLS (multiple listing service) than I have seen in a long time.  So don't miss a great time to buy.  Call today to see what is available to you.
This could be the beginning of the market picking up.  If … (6 comments)

selling a home: Market Report Menomonee Falls Wisconsin - Sales steady, Inventory Up - 12/09/08 08:02 AM
The GOOD NEWS IS:  Menomonee Falls has experienced increasing or steady sales for 5 out of the last 6 months.  The numbers  for the year are still down from 2007 but they are improving.  The sales for November  were 19 - dead even with 2007.
New listings in November were 30, a bit higher than the 26 for last year. Since January we have seen fewer homes coming on the market than 2007.  We are down over 19.3% for the year.
This indicates the market is getting better, with fewer homes in inventory and a little quicker sales for the properties that are on the market.
Inventory is decreasing, if you … (0 comments)
