Items that Repel Home BuyersThe seller’s market that was so prevalent a few short years ago seems to have shifted in favor of the home buyer. Thanks to an overall improvement in the economy and home prices that have risen by 10% or more for the past year, buyers are becoming a bit more selective about their purchase. Here are some items that scare buyers off and what you can do to fix it.Foul SmellsCertain buyers may like fried food or indoor pets, but most people are turned off by unpleasant odors. This is especially true when the odor is noticeable when a person first walks in to the home.Odors come in all shapes and forms. Various kinds of food, pets, and tobacco can leave behind distinctive smells. It is important to deep clean the home, the carpets and even the ventilation ducts to...

An Early Spring?  I'm not so sure that is what Jimmy was trying to say!   As you know, February 2nd was Ground Hog Day.  Many folks around the country turn to our furry friends to predict the outcome of our Winter; will we have an early spring or six more weeks of Winter?  It is no different in the wonderful town of Sun Prarie!  But I am not so sure exactly what Jimmy was trying to say this year.     An Early Spring? I'm not so sure that is what Jimmy was trying to say!

Home Seller Common Mistakes   Although sellers seem to have the advantage in the current market, this does not mean that sellers can simply put their home up for sale and wait for offers.  There is still some work to be done in order to get a buyer to pay the right asking price.  In fact, a lot of sellers are not aware of costly mistakes that are made that turn away buyers. Mistake #1: Condition does not meet Home’s Price Nobody likes to pay more for a product than they have to.  When a home is priced above its condition then most potential buyers are immediately turned off.  If your home is priced at the upper end of your area’s price range then the home should be ready to move in, right now.  If a potential buyer has to replace a window pane, steam clean the carpet or any other minor...

Lender Paid Mortgage Insurance (LPMI) Most people these days have heard of PMI, aka MI, aka Mortgage Insurance. Some may even cancel their loan process or home buying experience because they were taught that PMI is a “dirty word.” PMI is an option designed to help those that would not normally qualify for a mortgage still get into a home. Banks and Credit Unions are very concerned with new mortgage regulations and as a result, many have been holding their funding for only the perfect or ideal borrowers. You know what that perfect borrower is? Most want to see a minimum 20% down, 800 credit score, lots of money in the bank, and an established work/residence history. All these items will help to show you are “stable” in their eyes. The truth is, most people will not fit this model. The so...

Should I Buy a Home from a Family Member? A common real estate question I get asked in Sun Prairie is whether or not you can buy a home from a family member. The answer, in most cases, is yes. If the home is current on payments (i.e. not a short sale or foreclosure ), a homeowner can sell the property to any party they choose at a negotiated price. Similar to purchasing a car or other asset from family, there are many possible benefits to purchasing from a relative. Some of these include: Quick close - Most family members have the opportunity to discuss the purchase face-to-face, and can agree on contract details before involving their real estate agent or title company. This can greatly reduce the amount of resources wasted on counter-offers and amendments and allow for a quick close d...
