realtors: 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)

realtors: Hudson Home Values and the ‘Surprise Remodel’ - 03/04/13 03:52 AM
 
Sometimes home values can undergo abrupt changes. One way that can happen is through the ‘Surprise Remodel’ phenomenon. That’s when you wake up one morning to find that your Hudson house grew larger…overnight!
If you are one of the many Hudson residents whose children have left for school, the Surprise Remodel is what happened the moment you realized that that you were, in fact, suddenly in possession of an extra room.
Sometimes it takes a few months, but as soon as you conclude that the sentimental value of leaving the high school memorabilia in place is outweighed by … (0 comments)

realtors: 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:
-                     Falling Inventory. Per the NAR’s Existing … (0 comments)

realtors: ‘For Sale by Owner’ Deals Need Hudson Agent Knowledge - 02/28/13 02:11 AM

 Suppose you are driving past one of those ‘For Sale by Owner’ yard signs…and the house looks good!
 Do you screech to a halt, jump out and rush up to the front door to – quick! – sign a deal? More likely, you jot down the phone number (hopefully one is visible, though with For Sale By Owner signs, it’s not always the case) so you can call up your agent to get the details.
Veteran buyers considering a Hudson For Sale by Owner (FSBO) property know why it’s highly beneficial to use their agent from the start.  Even … (0 comments)

realtors: 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)

realtors: Why the Newest listings for Hudson Sometimes…Aren’t! - 02/28/13 01:53 AM
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)

realtors: Why You Need a Buyer's Agent - 09/05/12 03:21 AM

 
Having professional representation is critical for buyers, who are making what is probably the biggest purchase they will ever undertake. It doesn’t “cost extra” and buyers will know that the person showing them properties has their best interests in mind.
 
The concept of buyer’s agency was instituted in the 1980s, in response to a recurring misconception of buyers that the real estate agent who was showing the properties was representing them, when in fact, the agents were being paid by the seller and representing the seller. Washington, D.C. was one of the first jurisdictions around the country to … (2 comments)

realtors: Median Price for Existing Home at Highest Level Since 2008 - 08/03/12 03:12 AM

The median price of an existing single family home rose in June to the highest level in almost four years, the fifth straight month-to-month gain, NAR reported recently. The median price was up 7.9 percent from June 2011. Existing home sales dropped to 4.37 million in June to the lowest level since last October, NAR said.

Distressed homes accounted for 25% of all June sales, unchanged from May but 30% below June 2011 … (3 comments)

realtors: 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.
