Julia Odom, Chattanooga Real Estate
Chattanooga, TN
Hi Julie, Your recent post inspired me to contribute a post on this same subject.

It then blends that loan information with other databases that provide a credit score for the borrower and an estimate of residential value. BlackBox says it offers its data to the … (0 comments)

foundation inspections installations: Now Is Good Time to Study Real Estate - 02/08/10 12:03 PM
In an interview with the San Diego Union-Tribune, Michael Lea, director of the Corky McMillin Center for Real Estate at San Diego State University, says he is encouraging students to study real estate because we are at the bottom of a cycle. By the time these students have graduated, he believes the industry will have recovered.
“I don’t think we’ll ever again see the 2005-2007 heyday in real estate. That was an anomaly, and actually, I hope we don’t go back to that. But within real estate, there are a lot of opportunities, such as property management and lending,” he says. … (3 comments)

In a new study, "Housing in America: The Next Decade," Urban Land Institute senior resident fellow John McIlwain says the housing market will not return to what it was prior to the downturn but rather that a "new normal" will take its place. He expects another 10 percent decrease in residential prices this year, a jump in the number of borrowers abandoning "underwater" mortgages, and a change in consumer perceptions of homeownership. "The emotional impact on the children and parents and disillusion about the 'joys' of homeownership will be intense; new attitudes to homeownership … (8 comments)

Know Your Loan Ingredients!    Part I of a Three Part Serie When the FDA required food manufacturers to reveal the ingredients, nutritional value, calorie count and net weight on their product labeling, the big winner was the consumer.  The consumer wins again now that Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has set a standard for loan transparency.  As of January 2010, all loan originators are required to give borrowers a loan"ingredient" list called a Good Faith Estimate (GFE).   This five page "label" structured as part of the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) clearly discloses key loan terms … (0 comments)
