homes for sale: Financing Ideas for Hudson Investment Properties - 03/18/13 03:13 AM
Never mind what those TV get-rich-quick infomercials would have us believe: building long-term wealth requires focus and patience. Patience, because a steady growth is a more reliable strategy than flashier single investment ‘wins’ — and focus, because opportunities slip past when daily demands soak up all our attention.
For financially secure individuals, current real estate trends deserve some attention. Right now we have an environment that may be unique in our lifetimes — one that calls for seriously considering the long-term potential investment properties offer. If you agree that investment properties in the Hudson area are worth investigating further, you will … (0 comments)

homes for sale: Prices Rise on Homes for Sale Greatest since 2006 - 03/15/13 03:29 AM
When real estate occupies most of your day (as it certainly does mine), you find yourself receiving no end of information. Some summarize points of view that are available elsewhere; some provide original information that isn’t particularly relevant to our local market.
One piece that gets more than the usual quick-scan-then-into-the-recycle-bin treatment is the HPI Data Report. It comes in once each month from the demographers at CoreLogic ®. This group knows what they are talking about: among other things, they collect the most comprehensive property database in the U.S.
March was relatively quiet on the news front, so when they … (0 comments)

homes for sale: Hudson WI Home Sales Prospects: Anything But “Calm” - 03/04/13 03:42 AM
 
 
In February, Hudson area home sellers saw more than the usual number of reasons to look forward to this spring’s Hudson home sales selling season. It looked like the opposite of the lengthy real estate “Perfect Storm” that caused freefall across the national landscape.
Signs pointed to the possibility that we may be headed into the opposite market conditions. Webster’s Dictionary says the opposite of ‘storm’ is ‘calm’ – but I don’t think you would call Hudson’s home sales outlook a “Perfect Calm.”  Far from it! 
Some of the signs:

homes for sale: The Calling Card That Can Sell a Home. Yard Dos and Dont's to Selling - 02/28/13 02:04 AM
Your yard is your Hudson home's calling card. A dated or overgrown yard can be a huge turnoff to potential buyers – just as an appealing one can trump other objections. 
Landscape designer Cynthia Bee knows this well. "Landscaping often makes the difference,” she says, “between a prospective buyer getting out of the car for a closer look or simply driving on by."
The same goes for Internet prospects as they scan through listings in search of a Hudson home to buy. An unappealing yard can detract from your all-important curbside glamour photo -- and cause them ‘to drive on … (0 comments)

Newest listings in Hudson Are There (Just Further Down!)
You are doing some serious house-hunting.
You’ve been Googling ‘newest Hudson listings’, but when you click on the most popular sites, somehow the ‘newest Hudson listings’ are the same ones you’ve seen before. Worse, some of them turn out to have been sold! Or the price was wrong! Or the agent isn’t even the agent anymore!
What is going on? Doesn’t Google (or Bing, or Yahoo!) promise to show you sites with the newest listings in Hudson? How can the most popular sites (at the top of their results page: Zillow, … (0 comments)

homes for sale: Is Housing Recovery Real? Not Everyone is Convinced - 08/17/12 01:51 AM

Housing, the sector that led us into the recession, now looks to be one of the brighter spots in the economy. Homebuilding is at its highest level in nearly four years. More homes are selling, and at higher prices.
 
The question is whether this is a solid-enough foundation to sustain a full housing recovery. Lawrence Yun, chief economist for the National Association of REALTORS®, says housing woes are largely behind us. "It's been a harsh downturn, but the downturn is over," he says. "Now we're beginning to turn the corner. [The] question is: How fast will we be turning … (1 comments)

homes for sale: Mortgage Rates End Streak of Record-Setting Lows - Troy Burne - 06/21/12 04:12 AM

 
Mortgage Rates End Streak of Record-Setting Lows Average fixed-rate mortgages ended their recent streak of record-setting lows, according to Freddie Mac's weekly mortgage survey. Still, mortgage rates remain near historic lows, helping to keep homebuyer affordability high and providing an incentive to refinance. The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 3.71 percent with an average 0.7 point for the week ending June 14, up from the week prior when it averaged 3.67 percent. Last year at this time, the 30-year FRM averaged 4.5 percent.

homes for sale: Bank of America Offers Principal Reductions to 200,000 Homeowners - 05/24/12 01:33 AM
A select group of struggling mortgage borrowers are about to get an offer that sounds too good to be true. Executives at Bank of America say they will begin mailing 200,000 letters offering certain customers mortgage principal reduction.
 
“If people get these things and toss them, they won’t be eligible,” says Ron Sturzenegger, the Bank of America executive charged with providing solutions to borrowers in need of mortgage assistance.
 
But the offer is real, and eligible borrowers could get as much as $150,000 knocked off the balance of their mortgages. It is all part of the $25 billion settlement … (2 comments)
