clover: Buying a Short Sale or Foreclosure ...........what avenue is best for you - 04/22/09 07:06 AM
There seems to be a lot of confusion among consumers these days when they are trying to understand short sales and foreclosures. Many consumers think these are the same things with the same results.  This is not true.  A sale of a house in which the proceeds fall short of what the owner still owe on the mortgage is a short sale.   Many lenders will agree to accept the proceeds of a short sale and forgive the rest of what is owed on the mortgage when the owner cannot make the mortgage payments. By accepting a short sale, the lender can avoid … (0 comments)

clover: Sellers Be Ready - 04/18/09 03:17 PM
Getting your house ready to list on the market can be a stressful time, but the really stressful time occurs when they house is actually on the market.  Sellers need to be ready at all times for a potential buyer to call wanting to set up an appointment.  This means keeping the house picked up at all times and being willing to leave on a moments notice so real estate agents can bring buyers in.  Many times appointments will be made last minute because while driving buyers may notice a house for sale that was not on their list and they … (1 comments)

Are you a full-time professional real estate agent? How long have you worked full time in real estate? How long have you been representing buyers? What professional designations do you have?Knowing whether or not your agent practices full time can help you determine potential scheduling conflicts and his or her commitment to your transaction. As with any profession, the number of years a person has been in the business does not necessarily reflect the level of service you can expect, but it is a good starting point for your discussion. The same issue can apply to professional designations. Do you … (0 comments)

clover: Be smart on your pricing and still make a profit in todays market - 04/16/09 02:27 PM
The asking price you set for your home significantly affects whether you will profit in the sale, how much you will profit and how long your home will sit on the market. Your real estate agent's knowledge of the overall market and what's selling - or not selling - will be invaluable in helping you determine the price. The objective is to find a price that the market will bear but won't leave money on the table.
Here are some points to consider: Time. Time is not on your side when it comes to real estate. Although many factors influence the … (1 comments)
