(203kOnLine.com, covering the USA)
Let me count the ways or in this case the reasons why a consumer should use the FHA 203k loan program 1) Get to pay less than market prices typically as you are buying a "fixer". Quite often and justifiably so, fixers are less expensive than homes that are fixed up and ready to move in.  2) It is possible to gain equity at the time of the purchase rather than waiting for a few years before you have any. Typical purchase of $250,000 that requires $50,000 in repairs, may actually have an after improved value of greater than $300,000. We had one recently that borrowed the maximum loan amount of $729,750 and the home appraised "as improved" at $2.1 million. That's a lot of equity. We had another smaller project where the purchase price was $250,000 was renovation at $75,000 for a total of $...

DUMP THE CLIENTS WHO FAIL TO BE FAITHFUL I had a conversation the other day with one of the fellow agents. She was informing that she had been working with this one particular buyer for 3 months now but nothing has panned out. She had taken them out to view at least a dozen homes but no offers were submitted. Nothing shown had met the likings of the buyers so they continue searching.Here is where the odd thing occurred. While she was out showing another client a property, she ran into this same buyer at one of properties that held an Open House. She thought how odd that they were there. Maybe they were there by themselves as there was an Open House that weekend. A moment later, an agent came out of one of the rooms and asked if this buyer liked the property. THIS AGENT was not the one c...

i just received my Hoarding Specilist Certificate from the Institute for Challenging Disorganization as a Productivity Expert and Peak Performance Coach. By obtaining the highest degree of certification in hoarding, and working with the hoarding community, I have gained even a better understanding of why people hoard, which are many. If you go into a hoarder's home, you are probably extremely surprised to see the way some people live. When I read the book "Life in Rewind," it explained how a 17-year-old boy who was just an ordinary kid, couldn't be with his mom very much while she was dying of cancer, because the family thought he should continue with his teenage life. What the family didn't realize, was the son had his own way of grieving, and the family didn't allow him to be with his...

Can banks interfere with your Short Sale listings? Apparently, they can. I never imagined this would happen but it did. I had a good offer on one of my listings and everything was going as planned. The negotiator sent over the approval letter and we were on track to close escrow. All of a sudden, the seller contacted me to say that they want to put everything on hold. The reason? The bank had sent the seller a letter indicating that they may qualify for a loan modification. This is after the fact that the seller's request for a loan mod had already been denied not once but TWICE. The seller is unemployed and has been so for over the past year. Since the seller choose to see if they can qualify for the loan mod, the bank states that the seller has the right to cancel the short sale altho...

Renewing your City - Alhambra Real Estate prime Example   In a previous post on my outside blog we analyzed how Detroit has created a Re-Newal engine to Re-Vitalize itself. What we should also discuss is how Alhambra also has a Re-Newal Engine working and it's great not only for Alhambra real estate values but more importantly for the quality of life of its citizens.   Of course on Main Street the whole area there has been completely re-invented. The introduction of the Edwards Stadium Theaters being the anchor. Not only has Alhambra Commercial buildings along the way being revitalized but of course the Alhambra residential real estate side gets a boost. Recently on the corner of Fremont and Valley Blvd. the "Gate" to the city of Alhambra was inaugarated, the Gateway Plaza Park.  Direct...
