easley real estate: Where can I get info on foreclosed homes? - 12/09/09 01:02 AM
The best place to get information on foreclosures available for sale today is through a REALTOR who has access to the MLS.  There are hundreds of sites that promise the cutting edge info for only $19.95 per month, first month free (now give me your card number).  We have not found any of these sites to contain useful information.  Most of the houses on the site are not available for sale.  Either they're too early in the process and the homeowner is still trying to figure out how to stay in them, or it's old data - house has been foreclosed, … (0 comments)

easley real estate: I want to buy a house! - 12/08/09 05:32 AM
It's a great time to start looking for your first home.  With the first time home buyer tax credit, buying a home before April 30, 2010 will be up to $8,000 cheaper than buying one after that date.  To buy your first home, there are several steps to take.
If you haven't already started looking at houses, try out Realtor.com to see what's available in your area.  You can look at styles and colors and layouts and prices.  There will be a mortgage calculator there, also, to help you predict what payments will be.  It's a good place to get your … (0 comments)

easley real estate: I'm thinking of selling. When's the best time? - 12/06/09 11:56 PM
In a normal market in upstate SC, the best time to sell is spring. I tell clients to plan to list their home in January and expect to sell by June.  Even new agents and part-time agents have good numbers in the spring.  The grass is green and everyone's thinking about change, executives that have been transferred are looking to move their families closer by when school gets out, and houses are just prettier with flowers blooming and birds chirping.
2010 will be different, however.  In 2010, I think spring will be the ONLY time to sell.  The tax incentives … (6 comments)

easley real estate: Shop by August 15th to get your $8000 tax credit! - 07/23/09 03:28 AM

In SC, the mortgage market just got tighter.  My trusty mortgage broker, Caleb Legrand, just asked me not to send him any more contracts with less that 45 days to close.  And if I need Rural Housing or VA, no fewer than 60 days.  All the rules are changing July 30 to help protect you from loan fraud, and that's extending the time it will take to close a loan.
Once you backdate from the tax credit expiration, we need to hurry up and find your house!!  You must close by November 30th to get your $8000 first time home … (0 comments)
