chuck gollay: Traverse City Real Estate is HOT! - 04/22/12 06:09 AM
Part of my responsibility to my clients and prospects, sellers and buyers, is to update on the changing conditions of the Interlochen Real Estate Market, and the Traverse City Real Estate Market.  The one thing that is constant in real estate is that it changes all the time. If your agent can’t tell you what is going on in the real estate market TODAY, you are not working with the right agent.
So here’s an important update– our market is changing!  It is changing, and with it comes changes to the dynamics of buying and selling.  It can affect both buyers and sellers, … (2 comments)

chuck gollay: Get "pre-approved" not "pre-qualified" - 10/20/11 12:44 PM
 You've decided it's time to buy a home. You've been advised to contact a lender and get pre-approved, so you reach out to a loan officer, and talk on the phone. He/she asks you a few questions about your income and your debts, and then prepares a "pre-approval" letter for you, based on your representations. You come to my office, proudly clutching this preapproval letter, and you say, "let's find that perfect home for me."
That's normally music to my ears, since buyers who are ready, willing, and able to purchase a home are golden. BUT, before we start looking at … (4 comments)

chuck gollay: An Amazing Evening in Interlochen - 08/25/11 04:19 AM
    Last night, my wife and I attended a concert at the Interlochen Academy for the Arts in Interlochen, MI.  It's a school for the performing arts, and they host a series of student productions in the winter and spring, and a series of professional concerts and performances during the summer and early fall.  We saw the classic rock group Chicago last night, and it was truly an amazing evening.
For you lovers of classic rock, you know that Chicago, the band, has been together, creating music and touring since 1967.  Any group that can last for 44 years has my … (0 comments)

chuck gollay: Get your financing in order! - 06/25/11 02:43 AM
A recent blog by David Burrows talked about "A Doctor's Advice For Purchasing a Home."  It was an excellent, well-wriiten posting, and inspired this blog of mine. Getting your financing in order is the first order of business for home buyers today.  Here's why.
Back in the heyday of the real estate boom years, credit was easy to obtain.  With rapidly appreciating real estate, even over-extended borrowers were likely to cover their mortgage balance and even make a tidy proft when they sold their homes.  Underwriting scrutiny was not very intensive, and the money was flowing freely.  Then the bubble burst, and … (2 comments)

chuck gollay: Market update for the Greater Traverse City, MI area - 04/20/11 06:45 AM
The news is constantly talking about the real estate market and its sad condition, as if there is but one market all across the country.  The reality, however, is this: Real estate has always been, and always shall be, a local phenomenon.  While certain aspects of the national market do have implications for local markets, each local market is defined by its own unique characteristics. So, what happens across the country is not necessarily what's happening in Traverse City, nor does the Traverse City real estate market translate nationally.
The greater Traverse City market is arguably the healthiest area in the … (1 comments)
