A really nice surprise is happening now.  We are getting more and more buyers who are interested in seeing homes in Placentia.  I suspect that they have seen the better values and more square feet that one can get as opposed to other North Orange Countyareas.  Both newer and older homes are very available, good school districts, and ample proximity to shopping, etc.  The buyers are even asking for Placentia by name -- so the word must be getting out (Placentia is no longer a secret).  Single family homes are the top demand but the requests for condos are not trailing very far.  And Placentia has some very fine condo complexes to choose from.  We suspect that Placentia will rank very high in 2009 sales.

It is really sad in this market to see good buyers lose out on the great deals in great neighborhoods.  We just sold a short sale house, put it in escrow today, and now another good buyer wants to buy it.  They had shown strong interest and visited it twice, and were probably bringing in a relative for a second opinion. But they just waited around and thought about it too long.  Somehow we have to get buyers to realize that the good ones still sell and fast.  I will try to find them another home, but they may always remember the one that got away -- How do we get them to understand this?  Any good iideas out ther?

It is getting more and more important for everyone to consider and set expectations early in the process of buying home in North Orange County.  Staying "flexible" is key to a successful transaction.  Everything is subject to change:loans, rates, conditions for the loans, dates of escrow closing, REO (bank) delivery of paperwork, just mention a few.  It is paramount that all parties understand that these are uncertain times and changes are bound to come up -- so be prepared -- let all parties know that nothing is in concrete, be ready for some surprises and just go with the flow.  Being warned to stay flexible will make it better for all of the parties, as we navigate these unprecedented and fluid times.  Stay flexible and stay in the game - it can all be worked out.

Working with buyer's presents challenges.  As Realtors we have our own expectations for our yearly production.  As buyers reach out for our services Realtors have the ethical obligation of caring for our clients interests above and beyond our own.  In this world of instant gratification it is easy to see why agents take the path of least resistence.  Loan officers are telling our clients that they can qualify for homes that are still at the top of their affordibiity level.  Clients want to get the biggest house they can with their money.  Now just because a buyer can doesn't mean he should.  It is a delicate balance to counsel our clients to look in a lower price range than they qualify for vs. getting the most house for their dollar, then becoming a slave to the house down the road.

Thank you for choosing Premier Plus Financial Services.  We look forward to helping you In an effort to limit risky borrower behavior, Fannie Mae announced a new round of mortgage guideline changes last week.  Unlike previous its previous 20-plus updates that raised income requirements and minimum credit scores (among other changes), Fannie's latestguideline tweaks focus on the value of its underlying mortgage assets -- home equity.
