How Much Does a Realtor Cost?     Arica Song Call: 541-736-6314 Buyers Specialist- Harpole Real Estate Group Keller Williams Realty- Eugene & Springfield Eugene Home Finder       Last year I stated educating my clients on the home buying process.  I have since, developed a short, easy to ready buyer consultation packet.  This packet sets my clients up for success as they start their home buying journey.   My packet explains the difference from a buyers market and a sellers market.  It covers macro-economics and the average sales price ratios to expect when shopping for a home.  This sets proper expectations with my clients so they do not get upset writing countless “low ball” offers that do not get accepted.   In addition, we go over the pre approval process, an earnest money agreement,...

  Tips for Purchasing Bare Land- Eugene, OR     Arica Song 541-736-6314 Keller Williams Realty- Eugene & Springfield Eugene Home Finder   I have been helping clients negotiate an offer on a bare piece of land.  The property has septic approval and no well at this time.  I have been able to negotiate that the “seller carry” the contract for two years at a low fixed interest rate and a low down payment.  In addition I have negotiated terms on building a large shop, installing utilities and building a fence on the property prior to the contracts pay off. I have contacted a local title company who will prepare a note and trust deed drawing up the terms of our agreement.  Monthly payments will be sent to the buyers from a third party agency and everything will be legally agreed upon at closi...

  Options when a seller will not move out of a shortsale?   Arica Song Buyers Specialist- Harpole Real Estate Group Call: 541-736-6314 Keller Williams Realty Eugene & Springfield Eugene Home Finder   I recently helped a couple purchase a shortsale as an investment property.  Being cash buyers they were set to close the minute we had bank approval on our offer.  Unfortunately, the seller should have probably went through a foreclosure so he could have been able to stay in his home longer.  He had absolutely no savings, not enough to drive to the title company to sign loan documents and not enough to move out a couple days early.  His Realtor purchased   some of his property to help him pay for gas in his car on the close date.  The seller had not did his due diligence in seeking funds fr...

What Is The Difference Between an Appraisal & a Home Inspection?     Arica Song Call: 541-736-6314 Keller Williams Realty- Eugene & Springfield Eugene Home Finder      When purchasing a home your loan officer will assist you with ordering an appraisal.  You can never pay more for a home than what it is worth simply because a bank will not loan you money on a property that does not appraise for the agreed upon sales price.  Often when a home does not appraise for the sales price the seller either reduces his/ her sales price, the buyer pays the difference of the appraised price versus the agreed amount "out of pocket" or the sale is cancelled and the seller keeps his property. I always encourage cash buyers working with me to get an appraisal.  It is nice to know what a 3rd party feels ...

Looking for a delicious and filling pizza in Eugene, Oregon?  Try the Pizza Research Institute (PRI) in the Whiteaker neighborhood at 530 Blair Blvd.  The pizza combinations may sound strange, but the owners have done their research when it comes to creating great tasting pizzas. The business outgrew its earlier location and is now in a renovated garage with a train car inside serving as the kitchen.  This isn't your Domino's or Papa Murphy's pizzas.  It takes a visit here to discover why so many people give it good reviews. The slices are filling, so there is usually plenty of pizza to take home.  The wait staff and fellow customers have always been friendly and helpful when I've eaten there. PRI is just one of many nice, locally owned restaurants and small businesses in the Whiteaker...

BUYERS BEWARE... Do YOUR HOMEWORK!   ARICA SONG Call: 541-736-6314 Keller Williams Realty- Eugene & Springfield Eugene Home Finder   Buyers typically have a negotiated amount of time to conduct inspections after mutual acceptance in an earnest money agreement is reached.  In Eugene, Oregon 5-10 days is the typical time frame given for this.  The Oregon residential real estate agreement goes into further detail on page 4- line 199-202. Recently I helped a first time buyer couple try to purchase a rural property.  After writing the offer I stressed the importance of them doing any due diligence they felt necessary during our 10 day inspection period.  I metioned visiting the city offices to confirm easements,  zoning, approximate property lines, permits, septic tank/ well locations, shar...

Imagine yourself traveling to another country and being invited into a local resident's home to enjoy a traditional holiday meal with their family and friends.  University of Oregon international students have that opportunitiy as part of the Friendship Foundation for International Students' Share Thanksgiving program.  The program matches students with local families willing to open their homes and their hearts to young adults far from home.  For most, it's the first time for them to eat turkey and many of the side dishes. Students get to see firsthand how American's celebrate Thanksgiving.  They participate in family games, watch or play football, study the Black Friday ads, and experience how Americans live. The day becomes another treasured memory for them to remember and share with...

Inflation and rising food prices are causing many Eugene, Oregon residents to shop more carefully so that there is enough in the paycheck to last through the month. Fortunately, fast food prices haven't risen to the level advertised on a street sign in front of a Burger King on West 11th Avenue in west Eugene.  Only a king could afford a $499 meal deal every weekday that this sign promotes.  Even if fries came with the meal, I don't think my budget can handle many of these meal deals! In spite of the price tag on the sign, the cashier only charged me $4.99 when I ordered my King Meal Deal.  The dollar still has value here after all.
