As usual when the weather heats up so does the rental activity.  I have had a marked increase in new account meetings and tenants looking to move.  Roseville and the surrounding communities along the I80 corridor are all experiencing elevated activity as well.  Ideally the increase in the tenant pool will help to stabilize rents as they have suffered over the winter and early spring months.

It is crucial to take advantage of every advertisement opportunity available.  I often have owner clients ask meif they can run ads for their vacant properties--they ask if it will confuse the prospective tenant or interfere in any way my efforts to market their home.  The answer is yes please market the home too--with one important caveat:  the advertisement they place MUST be identical to my ad regarding rent, terms, contact information, etc.  I instruct them on the content of the ad so the prospective tenant can contact me directly via our website www.homepointe.com, 24 hour rental line at #916-429-1302 and/or my direct office line at #916-781-7075 x650.  Of course the rent amount and preferred terms must mirror my ad as well.  My thoughts are that you can never advertise to much.  W...

Home Staging is the very best proven way to get top dollar for your home as you prepare it for sale. Having your home staged by a Professional Home Stager will aid in selling it faster and for more money! Staging sets the scene throughout the house to create immediate buyer interest in your property. This leads to your home selling for the highest possible price in today's market. Remember, "The way you live in your home, and the way you market and sell your home are two different things."  It is very difficult for a homeowner to look at their home objectively, and if you can't look at something objectively then you cannot market it effectively.  When you decide to sell your car you will more than likely get it detailed and keep it clean in order to get the best price.  When you go on ...

$8,000 from Uncle Sam, just for buying a home! Back in the Dark Ages there may have been a better time to buy your first home. Maybe around 1950. There were many new homebuyer programs at the state and local level, but none compares to the new first-time homebuyer tax credit. If you have not owned a home in the past 3 years, you can purchase a home or condo and deduct $8,000 from the amount of tax you owe for either 2008* or 2009. You have to purchase before December 1, 2009 to qualify. If you file your 2008 Federal tax return and subsequently purchase a home, you can amend your tax return to get the refund. This tax credit does not have to be paid back!!! FHA mortgage interest rates have been below 5% for borrowers with good credit. Add to this astonishing rate the lowest home prices ...

These communities along the I 80 corridor are experiencing higher than normal vacancies for this time of year.  With competitive pricing and a proven system in marketing, good qualified tenants can be found.  The lesson to be learned is to distinguish your property.  You can distinguish your property immediately with a survey of the competition and a competitive asking rent at or near the bottom of the average rents available.  With today's tech savvy prospective tenants searching online for the best deals--they will not waste their gas or time to visit your overpriced property in person.  Know your market, know your competition--don't meet them, beat them! I have been successfully beating the competition with Homepointe Property Management for nearly eight years--I would be happy to do...

If you've been following the news, you know that, in an effort to help the current real estate market come out of the whole, the Fed has started their program of purchasing  Mortgage Backed Securities and has mentioned it will continue as needed. We also know that the media will (actually...already is) of course offer their own interpretation and most likely say "Great news...rates will go even lower because the Feds said they will continue their purchasing program...and rates will remain lower in the summer...". Here's the deal... The Fed is indeed buying Mortgage Bonds. What they've been purchasing is lots of Fannie Mae 30-yr 5.5% and 5.0% Bonds, which won't have much impact on our current home loan rates (go to http://www.newyorkfed.org/markets/mbs/index.html to check on the Feds Mor...

What is my score and why does it matter? The idea behind credit scoring is the desire to have a "simple" way to evaluate the possiblily of a borrower defaulting on their obligation. Credit scores predict, or put odds on, the likelyhood that you will not meet the terms of the credit you are getting. One of the most common questions we get on the Roseville CA Home For Sale blog about buying a home has to do with credit scoring; how scores are calculated and what effect they have on your ability to purchase a home. What goes into my score? Your credit score is a composite of factors including payment history, how much you owe, how long you have had credit, how recently you applied for more credit and finally what types or mix of credit you have. Here is a break down of the impact of each o...

3% Down - No Mortgage Insurance - No Appraisal Wow! Fannie Mae took a step towards taking their collective heads out of the sand by unveiling an aggressive financing program aimed at their rather vast inventory of REOs. The program allows buyers who will occupy the home as their primary residence to put as little as 3% down and they will finance the home with no mortgage insurance and they will not require an appraisal.  Primary Residence Highlights! 1- to 4-unit properties. Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac-eligible condominiums. Planned unit developments (PUDs). Modular homes. Manufactured homes (double-wide only). All properties must be designated by Fannie Mae as eligible for HomePath financing. Down Payment: 3% No Appraisal required Programs offered include 30, 20 & 15 year fixed rates and so...

Is it just me or have any of you noticed that most Senators and Congressmen/ Women simply state their "Party Line" when asked about this $827+ Billion spending package.  And, have you listened when a reporter asks about particular line items or section?  I have heard several interviews on the radio last night and this morning that have me alarmed.  I have heard things like "I don't believe that is what it says" and "If it says that, we will fix it" or "I will take a look when I get back to my office"...  What???  Take a look?  Those same elected leaders say, "I am going to vote for this because we MUST do something" or "This package is WAY TOO big that I cannot vote for it".  Is it just me or does it seem like these officials STILL do not have a clue as to what they are doing or the pot...
