scott larson realtor: The "Memorial" in Memorial Day - 05/27/10 03:09 PM
 
 
The "Memorial" in Memorial Day has been ignored by too many of us who are beneficiaries of those who have given the ultimate sacrifice. Often we do not observe the day as it should be, a day where we actively remember our ancestors, our family members, our loved ones, our neighbors, and our friends who have given the ultimate sacrifice:
This is how we can honor them
by visiting cemeteries and placing flags or flowers on the graves of our fallen heroes.  
by visiting memorials.  
by flying the U.S. Flag at half-staff until noon.

scott larson realtor: Should you Rent or Buy? - 05/25/10 03:32 AM
 
Should you Rent or Buy?
Relocation. Are you likely to be transferred to another city within the next two years? If you had to sell due to a job transfer, your property would need to appreciate at least 10% to cover the cost of selling; otherwise, you would lose money on the sale. When you buy a home, you should plan to stay put for a while.

The market is at the best levels since rates dropped over a year ago. When all signs, analysts, and economists pointed towards higher rates they did the oppsite and went down. But these rates are not likely to hold for very long.

scott larson realtor: Steps to home ownership - 05/20/10 08:09 AM
You need to find out what you can afford. The easiest way to do this is to find out what you can afford to pay monthly after you have made your down payment. The best way to do this is to visit a lender and get prequalified for a loan. It won’t cost anything, it will give you a good idea of what you can afford and it saves you time later by not looking at homes you can't afford  Keep in mind, however, that you will often qualify for more than what you might wish to spend each month. Think … (1 comments)

scott larson realtor: Home buyers tip on mortgage rates and points. - 05/18/10 07:42 AM
 
Choose carefully between points and rate.
When picking a mortgage, you usually have the option of paying additional points -- a portion of the interest that you pay at closing -- in exchange for a lower interest rate. If you stay in the house for a long time -- say three to five years or more -- it's usually a better deal to take the points. The lower interest rate will save you more in the long run. Your banker can help you find the right combination that works for your financial needs.

scott larson realtor: First time home buyer tip, How much home can you afford? - 05/14/10 04:28 AM
 
Aim for a home you can really afford.
The rule of thumb is that you can buy housing that runs about two-and-one-half times your annual salary. But you'll do better to use one of many calculators available online to get a better handle on how your income, debts, and expenses affect what you can afford.

scott larson realtor: Don't buy if you can't stay put. First-time Homeowners advice. - 05/12/10 02:42 AM
Don't buy if you can't stay put.
If you can't commit to remaining in one place for at least a few years, then owning is probably not for you, at least not yet. With the transaction costs of buying and selling a home, you may end up losing money if you sell any sooner - even in a rising market. When prices are falling, it's an even worse proposition. Make sure you discuss your plans with your Realtor so he or she can give you sound advice on this your biggest life-time purchase.
