shelton: Join Us Sunday July 17th 12-3pm... Open House!!! - 07/12/11 09:14 AM
What could be better than an immaculate 2 bedroom ranch-style unit? How about if that unit has 1 bath, central air and the laundry machines in the unit? Or if the living room/dining room offers a vaulted ceiling, skylight and ceiling fan with sliders to a deck offering more storage? And how about if I throw in a garage and your own private storage closet? Well...if this all sounds too good to be true, then visit me on Sunday, 7/17 from 12-3 to see this gem that is sited in a 6-unit complex in a quiet location, but convenient to everything! … (0 comments)

shelton: YADDA YADDA YADDA... - 08/10/10 08:41 AM
YADDA YADDA YADDA...Remember that Seinfeld episode when Elaine is recapping a date and she says something like, "We had the bisque and then yadda yadda yadda."  Jerry says, "Hey you left out the best part of the story", to which Elaine replies, "No.  I mentioned the bisque." 
Think about your home....what would someone who comes to see it at an open house say was the best part?  
Here's some comments I've heard:
"The colors here are just beautiful" "Obviously, this is the boys room"...decorated with pictures of half naked girls "Are these owners smokers?" "What is that smell?"...oh, just a … (0 comments)

shelton: 50 years ago... - 07/12/10 09:30 AM
Everything Comes Back Into Vogue...Even the good stuff like Interest Rates.
50 Years Ago...
Johnny Cash plays 1st of many free concerts behind bars. US Army promotes Elvis Presley to Sergeant and ends his 2 year hitch in the Army a few months later. Jimi Hendrix plays his 1st gig. Wilt Chamberlain sets NBA playoff record of 53 points. Chubby Checker releases The Twist and it becomes #1 on the charts. The Beatles give their 1st Public Performance   You know what else happened 50 years ago?  Interest rates were as low as they are today!

FSBO... What does it stand for?
HAFA... potentially the trickiest acronym of all in the Real Estate field, but not if you know the process.
In order to reduce the number of foreclosures in the US, the Treasury Department introduced a new federal program that makes it easier to process a short sale for people unable to keep their homes.

And by the way, Home Afforable Foreclosure Alternative (HAFA).

shelton: FHA... Did you know... - 07/01/10 08:44 AM
I really enjoy my dictionary.com word of the day (can you tell I also like the thesaurus option on that site).  I've really become smitten with not only knowing the word, but from whence it came, or its origin.
I really do have a point here, and that is, that as a Realtor articles come across my desk everyday.  Yesterday, I found an interesting one on FHA loans...
In 1934, the Federal Housing Administration(FHA) was created by the National Housing Act for the primary purpose of insuring residential mortgage loans while promoting home ownership in the US. 
Today, FHA is the … (0 comments)

shelton: Be Prepared - 06/30/10 07:34 AM
Semper Paratus...   The old boy scout saying is true, be prepared.  
When the time is right to buy you need to be prepared.  Don't wait until you have found your dream home to speak to a mortgage broker and to get your finances in order.   Remember, getting a pre-qualification can take time, time you may not have when you are anxious to make an offer.   Look for important documents, like bank statements, taxes and  W-2's.   Spend time deciding how much money you have to put down on a home and where will your deposit come from.  Be sure what price range you are comfortable with.

shelton: Don't you just love a bargain! - 06/29/10 08:25 AM
My heart skips a beat when I see a red CLEARANCE sign.  I don't go into a store without my coupons.  It's not like I believe I should get something for nothing (although I do play the lottery), but why pay more when you don't have to?  I never come home and tell my husband what I spent.  I come home and tell him how much I saved.  Yes, yes, yes...the receipt may say $200 on the credit card, but I saved $75! 
I believe that everyone should get a bargain too, so when I hear that you can lower your … (2 comments)

shelton: Tell me how you really feel... - 06/28/10 03:56 AM
I love the home!  If that's how you feel, tell your agent.  Too often buyers will take the stance that 'if it's meant to be, it will be' or 'it's ok if we don't get it'.  Every agent has had this happen.  A client loses a home, either in a bidding war or by not moving on it fast enough or waiting for 'something' to happen that never does.  Then they compare every home from that point forward to the home they 'lost'.  
Buyers need to tell their agent, 'I really want this home' the agent will take the lead from there, preparing and … (3 comments)

shelton: Is now the time to buy? - 06/25/10 08:21 AM
If you watch the news, read the paper, or talk to just about anyone you have probably heard that now is the time to buy, but is it really?
With June being the National Homeownership month it is important to remember that the process of buying and selling a home is different for everyone.  If now is the time to buy for you the following five steps will be helpful in your quest to be a homeowner.
1.  Get Educated. A little mortgage know-how goes a long way toward ensuring you get an affordable mortgage.

Center for Real Estate and Urban Economics Studies University of Connecticut The pace of decline in Connecticut's single family housing markets moderated throughout the state during the third quarter of 2009.
