Repairing damaged areas and staging your Lake Havasu home are smart things for any seller to do before placing it on the market.  But how many homeowners take into consideration whether their property meets the guidelines of specific types of loans before they sell it?  When you consider that the FHA insures approximately 30% of all mortgage loans right now, you would be wise to make your Lake Havasu home FHA friendly.  Otherwise, you may be cutting out approximately 1/3 of potential buyers.

lake havasu real estate: Use of Color in a Lake Havasu Home Sale - 11/05/12 04:22 AM
Color can be a Lake Havasu home seller's best friend or their worst enemy.  Avocado green appliances with mustard yellow walls and orange shag carpet wasn't even fashionable in the 70's.  They certainly are NOT a selling point for today's buyer, even if you have an outstanding home otherwise.  On the flip side, the use of color in a Lake Havasu home sale can increase its appeal, as long as you use it wisely.
White walls are out.  Most professional home stagers agree that neutral colors appeal to the widest audience.  However, "neutral" doesn't just mean varying shades of brown.  Lake … (2 comments)

lake havasu real estate: Are “Short Sales” right for you as a buyer? - 09/04/12 06:36 AM
A short sale is a home being marketed for less than the current homeowner owes on the mortgage.  The owner must be in a hardship scenario, able to prove it and we try to get the bank to settle for less than the amount owed.
