Actually it never really went out of style in my opinion.  It is just that is is a very under utilized mortgage program.  Why then is the title of my blog the declaration that the FNMA Homestyle is back in style?  It is because the FNMA Homepath renovation loan no longer exists.  Living and working in Florida since the great Real Estate bust the FNMA Homepath renovation loan became one of the go to products to help buyers that were not cash buyers secure financing for the purchase and the renovation of the property all in one loan.   The good news is that the FNMA Homestyle Renovation loan in many ways is a better option then the FNMA Homepath Renovation loan that used to be availalbe up until October 6th of this year.    The one huge difference is the ability to use the FNMA Homestyle ...

Florida Housing Finance Corporation offers a Mortgage Credit Certificate Program.  I just became recertified to offer this program again now that I am working for Eagle Home Mortgage and they offer this unique and little known program.  I am so excited to be able to offer it once again to my clients.  What is the Mortgage Credit Certificate Program?  It allow the homebuyer to claim a tax credit for 50% of the mortgage interest paid per year, capped at $2,000 annually.  It is a dollar for dollar reduction against their federal tax liability.  I will explain in great detail in upcoming blog posts.

Snap Quiz: West Palm Beach Home Décor—by Decade! First of all, a Spoiler Alert: It’s not fair to peek down where the answers are! Now that we’re clear on that, this is a quiz that will tell you how “Decade Sensitive” you are when it comes to West Palm Beach home décor. It took a little browsing around to put this together, but it sure was fun. The idea is to match the décor item with the decade it is most closely associated with. Ready? GO! A. Popcorn Ceilings The 50s B. McMansions The 60s C. Sherwood Green & Stratford Yellow The 70s D. Stainless Steel Appliances The 80s E. Shag Carpets The 90s F. Sustainable Materials The 2000s G.

Taking Ample Time to Choose Your West Palm Beach Buyer’s Agent “Hello there! I noticed you admiring this stunning open house. How would you like to sign with me as your West Palm Beach buyer’s agent, and find your dream home?” The appropriate answer for this question depends on what leads up to it—first off, whether you have already decided to enlist the services of a West Palm Beach buyer’s agent. It’s a good decision, but even if you have—and this agent seems well-mannered and likeable— at this point, the answer real estate professionals would recommend is, “Give me your card—I’ll get back to you.” The reason not to jump at the first offer is the same as why you wouldn’t agree to buy the first house you visited without first looking around the neighborhood. So why do so many people s...

Green Tips for Selling to West Palm Beach Home Buyers Selling a West Palm Beach home quickly and for a good price means attracting the broadest range of qualified home buyers. That can depend on identifying as many appeal points as possible, then showing them off through an energetic marketing program. One increasingly prominent marketing point is one that used to be an unexploited side issue: green features. Just watch some of the latest TV commercials, and you’ll see what Madison Avenue’s researchers have decided—today’s consumers increasingly respond to eco-friendly product features. Selling a home in West Palm Beach can benefit by incorporating the kind of green features that just a short while ago used to be underplayed (or overlooked entirely). But today’s buyers also tend to be ...

      The homes at West Palm Beach’s Bay Hill Estates provide great opportunities for buyers to find a large, stately mansion on an acre lot for prices close to market bottom.    Sales at Bay Hill have held steady at a little more than a house closing every month, but prices have languished at about where they were in 2011 at the bottom of our local real estate market.     Through October, 2014 there were 12 homes sold in Bay Hill averaging $160 per square foot.  During all of 2011 there were 14 homes sold in Bay Hill averaging $159 per square foot.     One probable cause for the lack of movement in community home prices is the number of distressed homes sold during 2014.  One-third of homes sold at Bay Hill through October 2014 were distressed properties – short sales or foreclosures. ...
