st louis real estate: St. Louis Home Buyers - What You Need To Know About The Good Faith Estimate - 01/02/12 09:46 AM
What is a Mortgage Good Faith Estimate?
One part of the homebuying process is applying for a home loan.  When you apply for a home loan, a lender is required to provide you with a mortgage good faith estimate (GFE) within three days of application.  The GFE is a summary of the costs and expenses that the borrower will have to pay at the time he or she closes on a property.  The GFE has recently become  a standardized document so all lenders use the same document.  This enables the consumer to shop and compare fees from various lenders before choosing a mortgage.  Here … (0 comments)

Why Should You Invest in St. Louis Real Estate
Investing in real estate just might produce more profits than investing in the stock market. Real estate can generate large returns if you find the right house at the right price.  You can fix up the propertyand rent it out often for at least the same amount as the mortgage on the house but more than often, rent it out for even more than the monthly mortgage.   Rent prices in St. Louis are on the rise so chances are you will get more in rent than what the monthly mortgage payment … (1 comments)

st louis real estate: Getting Your St. Louis Home To Sell - Outside Fixes - 11/29/11 09:29 AM
The exterior of your home is the most important.  A homebuyer's first impression is based on his or her view of the house from their car when they pull into the driveway.  You want the WOW curb appeal to set yourself apart from the competition.
Landscaping.  Look at what type of landscaping your neighbors have.  If it is not comparable to theirs, install a few bushes.  Do not put in trees.  Immature trees do not add much value to the appearance of the house.  If it is spring or summer and you have an area to plant, put in some flowers.  … (0 comments)

st louis real estate: Getting Your St. Louis House Ready To Sell - 11/27/11 01:44 AM
Notice my blog title said house instead of home?  When working with buyers, real estate agents typically refer to your purchase as a home.  When working with sellers, they often refer to it as a house.  There is a reason for this.  Buying real estate is an emotional decision.  If you are the seller, you need to remove the emotion from the equation.  Think of your home as a marketable commodity (property, real estate).  It is your goal to get the potential buyers to see it as their potential home. 
Put these on your MUST DO list when getting your St. Louis House … (0 comments)
