Evesham Township, NJ Real Estate News

I recently closed on a listing I had in Evesham Township, NJ and luckily had escaped what I call The Domino Effect. This is a phenom in real estate (okay, not quite a phenomenon but that adds to the effect) when one closing relies (or is contingent on) one or more other closings occurring. In my case, our closing depended on another house to close so the buyer had the funds from that property to purchase our listing. That buyer's house also needed another property to close, thus a domino effect is created. Of course, if either of the other properties failed to close, we could not close (a contingency in the agreement protects the buyer from default). So why did we take this offer if it was so risky? My client had an attorney (whom I recommended) who also asked question us accepting the...

The 1st point I must make is, do not hire a Realtor who works another job to supplement their income! Would you use a doctor or attorney that needed a part time job? I wouldn't. I have made this my full time career for 10 years and have consistantly ranked as a Top Producer. 2009 Janet Larsen ranked in the top 50 in the State of NJ Remax Agents. 2003-2010 NJ Association of Realtors Circle of Excellence Award Winner and 2005-2009Remax 100% Club Award Winner. I have listened to many homeowners that continually tell me they wish they had called me 1st instead of going though 1-3 other Realtors and wasting 6 months to 3 years trying to sell their homes that I have sold in a period of 1 day to 120 days at the price they expected anyway. Secondly, make a couple of test calls both to the agent...

    When it comes to mortgages, there are so many frequently asked questions. One mortgage topic that gets many misleading answers is mortgage insurance, specifically FHA mortgage insurance. Why do I need FHA monthly mortgage insurance if I put 20 percent down? Aren't FHA loans more expensive? (many refer to this because of the upfront mortgage insurance)   FHA monthly mortgage insurance will be there regardless if you put 20 percent down. If you put less than 20 percent down, you will have the FHA monthly mortgage insurance until you reach the 78 percent LTV level. (LTV = Loan-to-Value)  If you put 20 percent or more down, you will still have the monthly insurance for 5 years, guaranteed. Even if you put 19 percent down and you reach the 78 percent LTV in 3 years. This is a FHA guidel...

  Are you a consumer with some questions, but not sure who to ask? Are you a realtor who has questions or scenarios, and possibly work with a good loan officer, but could use some extra feedback? You have some outside sites such as Trulia, Zillow, or even Active Rain, to where you can ask such questions?  But what happens if you get like 7 answers and 3 of them are varying or different. And who is to say that you can trust such answers. I see many questions on Trulia that are answered incorrectly, and even the mortgage questions answered by realtors.  Sorry, but if I were a consumer reading this, not knowing any differently and took those answers as gold, as correct... I could be in some serious trouble down the road. Example : I have seen where one realtor told a borrower that FHA loan...

    How much abuse can one take?  How many times can one be beaten down, even if it's not physical abuse. The mind can be a delicate thing. I wouldn't think any of us would like any kind of abuse. So much abuse that it would make a person break down and cry. Well, this does happen within the mortgage industry from time to time. As a borrower, you need to understand the warning signs in order to act appropriately.  I am not saying that all loan officers do this to their borrowers, but it does happen more than it should and people need to be aware of this. Just remember, not all loan officers are evil, but some will mentally break you in many ways. Let me explain....     I recently just obtained a new client, who I will call Jane Doe. She was pre-approved by a lender for an FHA loan in e...

Now Is NOT the Time to Buy a Home in Evesham Township, NJ You do not want to Call Me TODAY to discuss your home buying options. I am sure that many of you are surprised to hear these words coming from me....Leander McClain, Realtor & Real estate consultant.  According to a study cited by the National Association of Realtors, "8 out of 10 economists agree that home prices will rise in the next 5 years".  Last week, the National Association of Realtors said the number of signed sales contracts rose for the seventh straight month in August, as homebuyers rushed to take advantage of a tax credit for first-time owners that expire in November. According to Freddie Mac, rates on 30-year home loans dropped below 5 percent for the first time in four months, but still remained above this year's ...

Are Commuting Costs Getting Out of Control?? If you commute to work by driving your car, you may have noticed that the price of gas is going up.  The NJ Department of Transportation offers assistance for riders who are interested of carpooling.   Sharing your ride to work - in a carpool, vanpool, bus, train, shuttles or a combination of these - is called ridesharing. Commuting just 15 miles each way can cost as much as $ 1,764 per year. Sharing the ride with just one other person can cut your commuting costs in half. The state of NJ has a website that provides a wealth of information for commuters and would  be car poolers www.nj.gov/transportation/commuter/rideshare/ Good luck and Happy Commuting     Leander McClain, Burlington /Camden County, NJ Realtor & Real Estate Consultant, Kelle...

Smart Money Tips These days, more than ever, we must be smart with the money that we have.  Here are 7 Smart Money tips that may help.  1. Charging Credit Cards To The Limit Using credit cards responsibly can help you build good credit so you qualify for lower interest rates on loans. However charging your cards to the limit and not paying them off is a sure ticket to trouble. It's very easy to say to yourself that you will use your charge card and pay it off when the bill comes.  That almost never happens.  So, pay in cash instead to keep spending within your means. 2. If It Can Happen, It Might If you're involved in an accident the day after your auto insurance policy expires, you can really be up the creek without a paddle. If that happens to you, the financial fallout can be devast...
