south coast plaza: THE MARKET WHERE YOU MOVE, REAL ESTATE BUYING ADVICE - 06/07/11 08:43 AM
 

THE MARKET WHERE YOU MOVE, REAL ESTATE BUYING ADVICE
As we see some market recovery, the scales become a little more balanced between buyers and sellers.  However, if you're a buyer moving out of the area, local conditions here aren't relevant.  You need to investigate whether it's still a strong buyer’s market in the area where you are relocating.
If long listing times and price reductions are prevalent, then you have the luxury of exercising some of the following options when you search and eventually make an offer.  First of all, you needn't jump at the first suitable home … (2 comments)

south coast plaza: IRS tells homeowners how to get tax relief if a lender forgives part of their debt. - 03/26/10 12:22 AM

The Los Angeles Times: IRS tells homeowners how to get tax relief if a lender forgives part of their debt.
 Generally, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) treats debt forgiveness by a creditor as taxable income. However, under federal legislation that took effect in 2007, certain home mortgage debt cancellations—such as loan modifications, short sales, or foreclosures—may be exempted from federal taxes. Other exemptions are also available.
• Homeowners considering a loan modification, short sale, or foreclosure should note that the federal tax exclusion under the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act of 2007 only applies to mortgage balances on a qualified … (0 comments)

south coast plaza: Time is running out for Orange County California Real Estate! Don't miss the Boat! - 03/14/10 10:05 AM

It's the best news in real estate since last year's First Time Home Buyers Tax Credit: an estimated $22 billion will pump into our economy as a result of the government not only extending the tax credit, but including current homeowners, too.
The existing $8,000 maximum credit stays in place for first-time buyers.  A "first-time" buyer is one who has not owned a home during the three years prior to the purchase.  However, repeat buyers who have lived in their home for five of the past eight years may also qualify for up to a $6,500 tax credit on their … (0 comments)

south coast plaza: A CHORE NEXT DOOR! - 12/27/09 04:42 AM

While not a very common problem, if you've got it, it can have a terrible impact on your listing: The Messy Neighbor.  If you live next door to a "neglected" property, you might lose up to 20% of your home's market value, particularly with buyers looking for any excuse to reduce their offer.
It's technically not your problem, but ask not for whom the bell tolls.  It's well worth your time and effort to resolve this situation amicably.  Always be respectful, and don't let your emotions get the best of you.
Unless you believe your neighbor is "unhinged," you should … (2 comments)

This week's C.A.R. Mortgage Update contains information about dealing with loan servicers and current

Tips for borrowers dealing with loan servicers

Many homeowners have experienced difficulties and frustration getting through to their loan servicer when

south coast plaza: READY FOR SOME GOOD NEWS IN THE COSTA MESA REAL ESTATE MARKET? - 05/28/08 05:29 PM
READY FOR SOME GOOD NEWS?
 Some financial experts have labeled 2007's market as the "roulette economy."  As we all know, whatever goes up must come down, but the nice thing about real estate is that whatever goes down always comes back upward again (much like stocks work).
 A healthier market is anticipated in 2008, as Wall Street cleans up the lending mess and the pressure cooker of home demand releases its top.  While the national average of home prices declined between one and two percent in 2007, that's peanuts compared to how much homes appreciated in the previous years.  And many … (0 comments)
