margo otey: REFINANCING REPRESENTS REALTOR OPPORTUNITY! - 12/10/12 02:50 AM
REFINANCING REPRESENTS REALTOR OPPORTUNITY!
I had a great call today!  A house I sold to my buyer last year just appraised for $60K more than what they paid when they bought it!
I received this wonderful call from my favorite banker who told me, "here's a great marketing opportunity for you!"  Turns out I have been doing a good job for my buyers (who knew?!).  They are receiving appraisals both on the initial purchase, and subsequent refinancing, in excess of the price negotiated for their homes.
I must admit: I don't often check in with my buyers post-closing to see if … (0 comments)

margo otey: How to Prioritize Your Home Improvement Plan...Margo Otey - 02/11/12 04:38 AM
Prioritizing home improvements is important to building equity.  The wrong improvements will just empty your bank account.
I recently completed a market analysis for a couple looking to sell their home.  I walked through the house with them, taking notes on all they pointed out as improvements.  "We added a 2-car garage, a mudroom, a deck, a patio..." - in a neighborhood where most of the houses have none of these things.  "We redid the kitchen, added an island, retiled the baths, added central air conditioning, finished the attic into a master suite, added a skylight and redid the roof..." - … (2 comments)

margo otey: New REFI Plan to Help Homeowners...Margo Otey - 02/11/12 04:10 AM
President Obama announced this week that an agreement has been achieved with 5 of the nation's largest banks to help under-water homeowners.  The banks have agreed to fund a refinancing effort to keep borrowers in their homes.
Under the program, mortgagees will be allowed to refinance their present higher-interest rate loans to market rates.  Many of the fees associated with a traditional refinancing will be waived.  This should give significant support to homeowners who want to stay in their homes, but do not have enough equity to refinance.
In addition, under the HAFA (Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives Program link: http://www.realtor.org/government_affairs/short_sales_hafa) loans serviced … (0 comments)
