In earlier eras, a would-be Westfield home buyer had few tools to aid in the task of finding a home that was ‘just right.’ Today, the situation has gotten a good deal easier thanks to a wealth of real estate apps that home buyers simply download onto their mobile devices. There are apps that can help you with everything from finding your dream home (and determining how much you can afford) to learning more about the neighborhood.   Home Buyer Terminology Every home buyer is inevitably exposed to a welter of technical terms—and some of them have meanings that differ from what you would guess. Trying to decipher the jargon is a challenge you can shortcut with a good app dedicated to the task. Android users can download Relmark’s Glossary Real Estate Terms; iPhone and other Apple devices u...

Having a Westfield home for sale as autumn swings into full bloom has more than one advantage. First off, this is definitely not looky-loo season—the majority of home shoppers this time of year tend to be serious-minded (perhaps because many are hoping to be comfortably moved in by the holidays). Whatever the reason, because many other owners will wait until spring to put up their own home for sale, if you are listing now, you can usually count on a narrower amount of competition.  A subtler reason why fall is an exciting season to put up a home for sale has to do with what can be a presentation advantage—the same reason home décor professionals like this time of year. It’s the Autumn Advantage: a time of year loaded with eye-catching decorating ideas. When the leaves start to change, i...

If you find your Westfield rental property without a tenant this fall, it may not take long before you’re tempted to take the first applicant who shows up. Sometimes it doesn’t take much longer to remember why that can be a costly mistake!  Hastily selected tenants can transform your Westfield rental property from a dependable revenue-producer into a sputtering headache-producer. Troublesome tenants are hard to manage, can cause serious damage to your Westfield rental—and can be infuriatingly difficult to remove. Of course, the best solution is to avoid renting to trouble-making tenants in the first place. Whenever your rental property falls vacant, you’ll be much more likely to sign a quality tenant if you follow the basic self-protection procedures: 1. Be Wary of Cash Buyers A tenant ...

Westfield residents don’t have to have children at home to know when we’ve gone through the familiar back-to-school rituals. Just turn on a radio or TV, step into a retail store, or drive past a school and the calls to educational muster are evident. At the same time, it’s hard not to be reminded how significant education is when it comes to Westfieldhome buying—how likely it is for schools to be on the forefront of many buyers’ minds. Most people know intuitively that top-notch schools carry significant weight in the searching and home buying processes—but the result of a survey done by realtor.com has spelled it out in black-and-white. Their research reveals that more than 60% of buyers consider school district boundaries during their home buying process. It’s a surprisingly weighty ...

The real estate statistics for the 3rd quarter of 2012 (July through September) showed some interesting changes over the 3rd quarter of 2011. The number of homes listed during those three months dropped by 43 percent from 2011 to 2012. On the other hand, the number of homes sold during the 3rd quarter was up 52 percent, with 179 homes sold in 2012, up from 117 homes sold in 2011 during the same period of time. This indicates a reduction in inventory. The average sales price was down slightly ($219,446 in 2011 down to $207,059 in 2012) but the average days on market also dropped, meaning homes sold for little less but sold quicker than in 2011.

I was driving to a lunch/listing appointment at Tony Sacco’s Pizza in Clay Terrace when I realized my readers might appreciate some info about roadwork in progress in one of Carmel’s busiest areas. I had no problem entering or leaving Clay Terrace. Good start! When I got back to the office, my assistant and I gathered some important info for anyone wishing to smoothly transition from Point A to Point B anywhere between Western Way/Clay Terrace Boulevard AND Lowes Way/Greyhound Pass. 146th Street is being widened. Traffic Signals at Western Way and Lowes are synchronized, easing overall flow. Throughout construction, the bridge has been restricted to a single lane, in both directions, plus requisite turn lanes. Current bridge deck is being replaced and expanded to include 8 lanes, as wel...

There are some important factors that need to be considered before taking the plunge into refinancing. Here are some things you should consider. When should you consider refinancing your mortgage?

Once you decide to buy a home, you will want to find trustworthy professionals who can walk you through the home-buying process. From your initial search to closing, you will use several real estate professionals, including agents, lenders, appraisers and inspectors. Before you begin to navigate the real estate market, consider the following questions:  Do I see a Realtor or a Lender first? Both a Realtor and mortgage lender should be consulted before you begin your home search. Realtors aid you in the home search and mortgage lenders help you determine how much home you can afford. Seeing a lender first can give you a concrete idea of your price range and whether you could even qualify for a home mortgage, both important to know before you start a search. If you see a Realtor first, t...

So you've determined that homeownership is right for you. Now what? Before you begin your home search, determine how much home you can afford. Knowing what price range you can afford can help narrow down your potential home choices. Here are the factors that determine how much home you can afford:  Yearly Income-FHA considers 31% an acceptable risk for the debt-to-income ratio (DTI).  The DTI includes the principal and interest, escrow deposit for taxes and insurance, mortgage insurance premium, homeowner's association dues, ground rent or special assessments, and secondary financing payments.  The total fixed payment ratio of 43% is considered acceptable for FHA standards.  The total fixed payment includes the PITI and all other recurring monthly debts.  Include in your yearly income ...

Comparing July of 2010 to July of 2009, the real estate statistics for Westfield show some interesting figures. While the number of sold homes decreased significantly, from 51 homes sold in 2009 to 28 sold in 2010, the average sales price increased. Even though fewer Sellers found Buyers in June 2010, the Sellers that did sell sold their homes for almost $25,000 more on average. The low and high sales prices also increased over the year, signifying the slow increase of home values in the area. Another positive change was the average days on market, which dropped from 87 days in 2009 to 55 in 2010.   Westfield Real Estate Statistics-July 2009 versus July 2010   July 2009 July 2010 % Change Sold listings 51 28 -45.1% Average Sales Price $225,799 $250,938 11.1% Low Sales Price $70,000 $90,...
