real estate: IT’S NEVER EASY FOR FIRST TIME BUYERS TO TAKE THAT BIG STEP - 04/03/14 03:02 AM
Even though, we haven’t stressed enough the good opportunities there are in the market right now, according to the National Association of Realtors, there’s money in the table left behind by young buyers who are still dribbling their decision.
Lawrence Yun, who is the NAR chief economist, states that “there are $41,000 missed by renters when the prices were at a low point” with annual median home prices at $166,100 in 2011 and $197,100 in 2013. Moreover, the median national home prices are expected to increase even more.
The most recent data from NAR show that first-time home buyers are less … (3 comments)

real estate: When is a good time to buy? NOW! - 03/12/14 11:12 PM
As we know, mortgage rates and home values are rising. According to recent data, 5.09 million homes were sold in the United States. The pace of U.S. home sales has outperformed 2012 numbers for every month until December 2013, increasing a total of 9.2%.

Also, the median home price for 2013 was 11.5% above where it was in 2012, Making it the second-highest year of price gains since NAR … (2 comments)

real estate: “Luck of the Irish” - Refer your client to another RE Professional - 03/06/14 01:38 AM
If you have a real estate client that has given you business for years and now needs to relocate, don’t lose them to some third party relocation company, with zero experience in real estate. Send them to your trusted local professional!
Here are a few important reasons why you need to network with agents in different markets. Your contact agent in another market will:
1)      Provide your client his/her trusted sources, like a list of vendors.
2)      May be able to negotiate in different languages such as English/Spanish (as in my case) or others.
3)      You can be sure he/she will … (4 comments)

real estate: Things homeowners need to have in mind for your 2013 taxes - 02/20/14 09:35 PM
If you are a homeowner, the following are things you might want to take into consideration when you file your taxes this year.
 
PMI Deduction
This tax rule lets you deduct the cost of private mortgage insurance, which is what you pay your lender each month if you put down less than 20% on a home. PMI protects the lender if you default on the home loan. Your deduction could amount to a couple hundred dollars depending on your tax bracket and other factors.

real estate: 4 THINGS TO KNOW WHEN YOU HIRE A REAL ESTATE PRO WHO IS A FRIEND - 02/13/14 02:04 AM
In my 15+ years of experience in the Real Estate Industry, I have seen many people who may have trouble choosing a Real Estate Professional that is also a good friend. While this can happen, here are four important aspects that may lead you to discard him/her, and why you should not do it.
 1.       You are afraid to disclose your personal  financial data to a close friend
There is no reason why you should not consider a close friend as your Real Estate advisor. Whether you are buying or selling, your real estate professional is forbidden by law to obtain … (5 comments)

real estate: 7 Strategies to decide if you should move or you should stay put and remodel - 02/06/14 01:24 AM
If your New Year’s resolution included changes to your home front or other changes, these seven keys will help you arrive at the best solution.
1.       Determine what bothers you the most - Changes can be made within an existing footprint, even without adding additional space. Some walls can be taken down and doors/windows can be removed or changed.
2.       You have to understand how your home is sited – If your house is oriented toward views, are those views interesting to you? If the site always leaks ground water, has absolutely no trees or include uninspiring views the moving is an alternative … (8 comments)
