home: Home prices flat, Mortgage rates down, Stocks up,...whats next? - 01/10/15 03:29 AM
It seems that home prices have currently leveled off after a nice bounce from the 2008/2009 period when home prices declined drastically. Currently Mortgage rates are close to record lows (as of 1/10/2015), and that is "after" the FED has announced their Bond buying will decrease. This news should have made interest rates shoot up, but not so. Rates have now come back down to a level lower than the FED intial Bond buying announcement. This is a troubling sign, as home prices should be booming also. Is the Economy in so much trouble that we are going to be in … (1 comments)

home: FHA upfront and annual mortgage insurance increasing again for home loans! - 03/16/12 03:23 AM
FHA has increased their upfront and annual mortgage insurance premiums again. It is getting very expensive for an FHA loan. If you can qualify for a conventional loan, the costs are much better. There is no upfront MI and much lower annual (paid monthly in mortgage payment) MI.
Changes will be effective on April 9, 2012.
The charts below illustrate the 10 basis points (bps) increase in the Annual Mortgage Insurance Premiums (loan amounts under $625,000) and a 75 basis points (bps) increase to the Upfront Mortgage Insurance Premium (UFMIP). It is anticipated that these marginal increases are affordable for nearly … (0 comments)

home: Existing home sales in the West are best! Distressed home sales still dominate the markets. - 02/28/11 05:24 AM
The housing market continues to keep experts and analysts on their toes. I assume this will pattern of uncertainty will continue for at least 2011 and partially in to 2012, with more steadiness at that time.
While existing-home sales rose again in January and are outpacing year-ago levels, we are still seeing a drop in home prices across much the country. Existing-home sales increased 2.7 percent in January and are 5.3 percent above January of 2010. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, sees the rise as positive, but with room for improvement. "The uptrend in home sales is consistent with improvements in … (1 comments)

home: How long does my home short sale take to complete after I have a Purchase agreement? - 06/21/10 05:19 AM
The length of time a short sale approval will take is difficult to guess. Here are some estimate, but every lender and every deal is different.
Lenders often find themselves in a tight spot when borrowers default on payments leading often to a foreclosure, or those whose payments are delayed due to various reasons. The approval process in such cases gets delayed and it is not unusual to find bottlenecks along the way, leading to backlogs extending for days, weeks and in some cases, even months at a time.
The short sale process is long and tedious, requiring a detailed set of regulations … (1 comments)

home: Could we be hitting a bottom? Some good signs, some bad signs. What's your opinion? - 10/12/07 05:23 AM
 There are many mixed reports right now and they include good signs and bad signs. I usually gauge the Real Estate business on how mine and my office sales are doing and there has been some up-tick in buyer interest for the Seattle-Tacoma, Washington area. Here are some of the positives and negatives....and a chart showing the emotional Real Estate cycle. I think the Puget Sound, Washington area is in the Desperation/Panic area of the chart.

home: Don't want to hire a Real Estate agent? Evaluate the whole process first! - 10/02/07 08:05 AM
 List of Pros and cons of selling FSBO (For Sale by Owner)
PROS
Selling your home without an agent means More Money. If that's not an incentive, what is? By selling it yourself you save the fees or commissions (thousands of dollars) that you would have to pay an agent. But beware, many people make costly mistakes that will cost much more than hiring an agent plus a lot of undesirable stress.
CONS
Real estate agents are paid good money for a reason. Selling a home takes a lot of time and energy. Open houses, dealing with potential buyers, closing sales and dealing … (3 comments)

home: The slow Real Estate market is bringing back contingent offers. Here are the pros and cons. - 10/02/07 07:58 AM
Contingent offers and why they are making a comeback.
During the strong sellers' market of recent years, contingencies were rare because buyers were confident they could sell before closing on their next home. Times have changed due to a slower real estate market.
What are Contingent offers???..... A contingency in a purchase contract is a condition that must be satisfied for the sale to go through. With a contingent-sale offer, the deal is not complete until the buyer's home is sold. If the buyer's home doesn't sell, the buyers are usually released from the contract without penalty and the seller's home goes … (2 comments)
