bank owned: A New Tormorrow is here Today! - 04/25/15 02:28 PM
Stability has returned to the real estate market as homes continue to be listed and sold in a timely manner.  Interest Rates remain extremely low and FHA loans have lowered their PMI.  Stated Income Loans are also back.  There are many home owners that have avoided going into foreclosure as home values are now rising to levels unseen since the collapse in October of 2008.
Keep in mind that approximately 10% of homes will be listed for sale during a hot real estate market and the 7 years in which the market was stagnant and you'll get a good idea of what … (2 comments)

bank owned: Santa Clarita Homes for salle update 7/2/2013 - 07/02/13 03:14 AM
Good Morning!
 Change is in the air regarding the local real estate market in the Santa Clarita Valley.  Current Active Listings have remained steady in the 340 range.  However the saleable inventory has declined as sellers have noticed the multiple offer and the new listings hitting the market are priced well above the previous sales of comparalbe homes in the same location.  The result has been less showing, less offers and sellers holding to a price that is not warranted.  Many of the homes that are selling face the problem of an appraisal.  Most home buyers are either unable or unwilling … (0 comments)

bank owned: The real estate market is changing daily! - 02/22/13 01:49 AM
The real estate market is changing daily. Homes are being listed at and above market value.  This is great news for home buyers!  They are no longer being misled by seeing unrealistic home prices only to find out that the home is $50,000 under-priced.  We are heading into a real estate market where negotiation will replace a bidding war.  I’m looking forward to the day when “Best & Final” is replaced by an old fashioned “Counter Offer”!
Homes are hitting the market at an incredible pace and selling at an alarming pace.  The community that I serve is called  The … (1 comments)

bank owned: You can’t pay too much for a home right now! - 02/17/13 02:03 AM
You can’t pay too much for a home right now!
Time, Location, Quality of Life & Future Investment, these are the primary factors that are driving the current real estate market.  There is an eight year pent up demand of buyers and sellers that have wanted and needed to move over this period of time.
Uncertainty no longer exists. Gone are terrorist threats, stock market crash, loss of jobs, political wavering and home prices declining.  What has taken the place is a new fear.  Fear is one of the strongest emotions and the fear of lost opportunity is among the worst.

bank owned: Don't look now, but buyers are once again coming out of the woodwork! - 09/05/11 06:39 PM
For some reason buyers seem to all be on the same wave length.  This phenomenon is unexplainable and the very same reason I've attempted to get buyers to buy while other sit on the side lines.  Home sales plummet and few buyers take advantage then overnight buyer, all at once, start buying.  Few had taken advantage of the market and all of the sudden homes are getting multiple offers and interest rates jump a half point or more.  So buyers stop buying, prices drop, interest rates drop, bargains are to be had and buyers stop buying.  This is the roller coaster … (3 comments)

bank owned: How do you expect the real estate market to recover acting like this? - 09/04/10 08:29 PM
My God!  How can the real estate market recover with banks and the US government doing everything possible to sabotage the recovery.  First off, during the 2 time periods when the federal tax credit existed homes were garnering 15 and more offers and selling for much higher then they were listed.  Banks should have unloaded properties at that time and more homes would have sold at higher prices.  The government should have extended the federal tax credit knowing that stopping the tax credit would put the brakes on the home sales.
Now that we have adjusted to the lack of the … (5 comments)

bank owned: Home Prices are on the Rise! An explanation from a Conspiracy Theorist! - 06/26/10 05:19 AM
Home prices have dropped as much as 50% in many parts of the USA.  There have been relatively few Bank Owned homes reach the market compared to the amount of homes that can not be saved by home owners and will eventually be foreclosed upon.
The US Government gave a $8,000 tax credit to first time buyers, new home buyers and existing home buyers.  There were on average 12 buyers for every Bank Owned Listing that managed to hit the market.  These homes were listed far below the absorption rate and bid up as much as $100,000 above the list price.
