By now, most of you have heard that the New Housing and Economic Recovery Bill, which has just passed the House and the Senate, eliminates seller-funded down payment assistance with FHA transactions (Nehemiah, AmeriDream, Genesis) - effective October 1st, 2008.  The new bill also includes an available tax refund of $7500 for first-time home buyers, who purchase by July 1, 2009. The refund, however, is really an interest-free loan, which must be paid back over 15 years in equal installments. It's not yet clear to us exactly when the buyer can get the money (prior to purchase? After filing tax return for year of purchase?). FYI, there is some confusion over exactly when the door will officially be closed on the Down Payment Assistance Program. People are asking: "Must the transaction be f...

Moving can be very exciting...but it can also be a bit of a pain as well. Besides packing and unpacking, there is a long list of details to be handled. Things like choosing a mover, connecting utilities, getting Internet and cable service, or subscribing to newspapers or magazines in a new area can be quite a chore. And if you forget to connect one of the utilities you could be stuck in your new home for several days without that much needed service. To ease the stress of moving and schedule new connections for all of the utilities in one convenient location, simply logon to www.whitefence.com. You can quickly compare prices for movers, phone, electricity, television, or high-speed Internet. Just select the service you wish to compare--for example, phone, cable, and electric. Or, enter ...

Don't Become an Identity Theft Victim... According to recent statistics released by the U.S. Department of Justice, about 1.6 million households experience theft of existing accounts other than a credit card (such as a banking account), and 1.1 million households discover misuse of personal information (such as their social security number) annually. In addition, a recent poll revealed that "sixteen percent of adults say they have had their credit or debit card used by someone they don't know without their permission" and that "substantial numbers" of people have taken specific steps to help prevent identity theft from happening to them. Here are some important tips for keeping your information safe and sound: Give it to me in writing. While many of us have limited our exposure to telem...

A written proposal is the foundation of a real estate transaction. Oral promises are not legally enforceable when it comes to the sale of real estate. Therefore, you need to enter into a written contract, which starts with your written proposal. This proposal not only specifies price, but also all the terms and conditions of the purchase. For example, if the seller offered to help with $2,000 toward your closing costs, make sure that's included in your written offer and in the final completed contract, or you won't have grounds for collecting it later. REALTORS® have standard purchase agreements and will help you put together a written, legally binding offer that reflects the price as well as terms and conditions that are right for you.  Your REALTOR® will guide you through the offer, c...
