orange county: Good News in Orlando Real Estate: "The Skinny" - 02/02/10 06:18 AM
Our Orlando Regional REALTOR Association/ORRA was a little late in getting us REALTORS this month's edition of our emailed copy of the Market Pulse (a fairly comprehensive overview of EVERYTHING real-estate-related for each month).  BUT--they had a good reason for it--they were working on including "The Skinny." 
The Skinny is a well-put-together 2-minute video about current market conditions in the Orlando area.  Click below to enjoy it:
Let me know how you enjoyed this first edition of The Skinny, brought to you by ORRA.  Personally, I think it's pretty good.

If you are a First-Time Buyer in Orange County, Florida, and were planning to get a large chunk of money from the County, that "large chunk" just dwindled appreciably yesterday.  What this means to you First-Time Buyers is that you will continue to be able to access funds from Orange County Down Payment Assistance/State Housing Initiative Partnership (SHIP) if you qualify--but there will be less funds available per Buyer/Family. 
Well, here it is:  The Powers-That-Be have made and enacted the dreaded changes to Orange County's Down Payment Assistance Program for First-Time HomeBuyers...And It Just Happened Yesterday.

orange county: Misinformation: Why Do Others Keep Telling Buyers that Orange County FL DPA $ is All Gone? - 02/03/09 03:06 AM
MISINFORMATION About Loans and Down Payment Assistance--
Specifically about Orange County Down Payment Assistance is Running Rampant
Well, I am not a mortgage specialist, loan officer, lender, and I have no affiliation with Orange County Down Payment Assistance BUT I have successfully gotten money from them for a Buyer I worked with recently and I am constantly faced with people spreading misinformation about their program, probably because the information is confusing in and of itself and partly because everyone involved in a transaction with them must jump through many hoops (the Buyer, the Loan Officer, the REALTOR, and sometimes the Seller, too).  … (5 comments)

orange county: Down Payment Asst. vs. NO Down Payment Asst.--Which is the Strongest Offer?? - 10/28/08 08:21 AM
Okay.  I am working with a Buyer (well, actually a few Buyers) that needs and qualifies for Down Payment Assistance with Orange County, FL.  The hoop that a Buyer with OC in FL needs to jump through, though, is that the PROPERTY must also qualify.  For a house in Orange County, FL to qualify for the program, it MUST have something APPRECIABLY improved or replaced within it within the last 12 months.  For example, it needs to have something NEW like a reshingled roof, updated electric, updated plumbing, or a new hot water heater.  You can't just use the funds (up … (2 comments)
