BUILDING THE DREAM OF HOME OWNERSHIP

Florida 3Our blog is an ongoing konversation about all things real estate. Not only can home shoppers find experienced real estate brokers and agents; mortgage lenders; general contractors and other service providers to assist with your home buying needs, our blogs helps you become a knowledgeable home buyer. If you’re looking for great homes, take a moment to visit our member’s “Homes for Sale” boards below and other homes for sale resources we’ve provided to get your home shopping started right.

Today’s real estate market is in transition and home buyers can find a wide variety to select from. One sector that remains at the top of everyone’s list are distressed homes and short sales, which most likely are in need of repairs.

When considering purchasing a home we encourage you to include distressed real estate and short sales. These properties offer little known opportunities to acquire the home of your dreams. We discuss these properties in our blog and you can learn more locally by visiting our “Real Estate Broker”, “Mortgage Lender” & “General Contractor” Google Plus Communities above.

Distressed real estate and short sales are normally sold at below market value and further discounts when the property is in need of renovation. The first things that come to mind for most home buyers are:

  1. How to include “Cost of Repairs” in your mortgage & renovate after escrow closing;
  2. Defining “Required Repairs” and what are your desires;
  3. What repairs get the most bang for your buck;
  4. Locating the right team for your unique home purchasing needs.

Our blog addresses these issues and more as you engage us here and at our Google+ Communities. In doing so, you’ll become an informed home buyer and feel confident understanding relevant real estate topics such as:

  1. FHA 203K~Traditional and Streamline;
  2. Fannie Mae HomePath or HomeStyle Renovation lending;
  3. Buying a Short Sale, Distressed or Foreclosed Home;
  4. Low Down Payment FHA home loans for as little as 3.5% for the home of your dreams;
  5. 100% Financing with USDA Rural Development & Veterans Administration home loans;
  6. Down Payment Assistance Programs;
  7. Getting Ready for Home Ownership;
  8. And, much more!

Be sure to engage our network of real estate brokers and agents, mortgage lenders, general contractors and other recommended service providers for all your home buying or selling needs.

Purchasing a home can be the best investment you’ll ever make, but it takes knowledge and the right team!
