Buying Metro Detroit real estate story. Here in Metro Detroit real estate market homes are going tremendously cheaper than they were several years ago.  In fact in many cities in the Metro Detroit area colonials, split levels are going for a little as a $100 a square foot.  So a 2000 square foot home can be had in Canton for as little as $200,000, or a 1000 square foot Redford home for under $90,000. But we put in an offer on a nice Livonia ranch a few weeks ago listed for $149,900.  I had talked to the other agent beforehand to do a little "research"  I am always amazed at how much the some agents let out of the bag.  I had seen what the sellers had paid for the house through public records so I knew there wasn't much room to negotiate.  The agent went on to say it was a relocation and...

I just had a client's offer turned down from Option One Mortgage.  They had a foreclosed home in Livonia Michigan that is  listed at 209,900.  The lender got it back a year ago and put it up for sale in October.The 2200 square foot house needs a roof immediately. At a minimum cost of $4-5000.  All the carpet has been ripped out of the house.  $7-10000.  The wallpaper has been torn off here and there through out the house.  All the walls need painting.  The kitchen is in need of updating.  There is a in ground swimming pool that hasn't been opened in over two years and may have to be ripped out at a cost of about $7000.   The basement walls need crack repairs and rod hole repairs.  The yard hasn't been taken care of in years.  The bathroom looks like a bomb went off inside of it.What I c...

If you are at least 62 years old and you do not owe the federal government any past due money, this program can change your life and offer you peace of mindI've been active in real estate for over 15 years, as a broker and mortgage loan officer.  My current passion is reverse mortgages for seniors.   This is an amazing program for helping seniors to achieve financial stability while buying a new home or keeping the home they live in now. With a reverse mortgage, you have no monthly payment.  In fact, the mortgage company pays you a monthly payment!  You have worked full time for 30 years or more; it's time to enjoy your retirement.  A reverse mortgage loan is a special type of loan that permits borrowers to convert some of the equity in their homes to cash.  Instead of making payments t...

This was my first contact thru active rain that led to a job.  What a thrill it is that the contact was a realtor/owner of a listing and she found me thru active rain. The house was vacant and staging it was a real pleasure. Going going  gone   Agent/owner testimonial Virginia: Once the house was staged and we put it on the MLS, it was like a dollar sale at the Mercedes dealership!   We had so many people looking at the house it was amazing! The photos you took certainly spoke a thousand words. It was great because we just used your photos to put on the MLS. It was so easy. We got offers by a couple people and finally decided on one.   Thank you for your assistance. You made the whole process easy and delightful. I have passed your name on to a couple other people. I'm sure the house we...
