2013 kicked off with a great first month. We helped 2 buyers find great new homes and one seller sell their home.

The NOVA and DC markets are hot with more buyers than available homes. One of these buyers made 7 offers on properties before putting a winning bid on a home. The home that we sold went under contract in less than 48 hours for well over asking price AND will close for $4,000 more than the appraised value.

Triple Dip–Housing Prices to Head Down!

Yikes!  Just heard this on CNN along with a scary chart.  Then I found their article on their site. 
Before you panic, remember that all markets are local.   The article reports that first bottom was in 2009 when prices fell to 31% below  peak.  The second was last winter where it was 33% below the peak.  They are now stating that another low spot of 35% below peak will be reached...

It is October in Virginia and we woke up to our first snow this morning.  While it may not be below freezing, if you are done with your garden hose, it is probably a good time to winterize your hose bibs.  Hose bibs are the faucets that your garden hose connects to.
Hose bibs come in two styles.  Frost free hose bibs look like this.  These hose bibs generally do not need...

Nope this isn’t about the price of homes in our area. Yes, those are up for the past three years, just not quite 20%.

Rentals from today through October 30 will be $1 per night.

Current Interest Rates

Interest rates have been hovering between 4.25% and 5.25% in the past six months.  With a low of 4.25% in November and high of 5.25% in December.  Today’s rates are about 4.875%.
If you missed your opportunity to purchase last fall, your interest rate today is .625% higher.  That doesn’t sound like much, right?

Price and Cost

In the DC metro are, homes hit their high price in June of 2005 and their low prices in March of 2009.  People often ask me if the price of homes will go down again. The national news likes to talk about a “double-dip” in Real Estate prices.
After the tax credit expired last year, our market cooled a little.  In some parts of the region, prices even decreased a little.  Over-all,...

4 Types of Sales (Are foreclosures the best deals?)

4 Types of Sales (Are foreclosures the best deals?)

I see people asking about foreclosures all of the time.  The supposition is that foreclosures are the best deals.  Some people think that the banks are so anxious to get the foreclosed home off their books that the homes are priced 10% or more below market value.
I recently publish links to free lists of foreclosed homes in our area on this blog, but that isn’t what today’s post is about....

Failed Loan Modifications

The HAMP program has helped some homeowners, but hurt many others.  With the structure of the HAMP program, some banks are making extra money by checking the boxes from the program and earning their bonus.  Unfortunately, the banks still foreclose upon some of the homeowners making this program a disgrace.
See this MSNBC video about the HAMP program:

 
If you are facing foreclosure, you only have so much time to act.  We recommend...

Lowes at almost 20% Off!

Lowes is running a special for tax season.   This is how it works:
Purchase a “Tax Refund” card from Lowes between February 8th and March 14th in the amount of $500 to $4000.
On March 18th, they will add 10% of your original purchase amount back to the card.  So, if you bought $4,000, they will add $400.
Wait, you say, that is only 10%!  Where is the “almost 20%”?
All of my customers know,...

Everyone wants to buy a foreclosure.  After all, they are the best deals.  Right?
Put yourself in the bank’s shoes.  If you had something that was worth hundred’s of thousands of dollars would you:
A) Sell it for some percentage well below its value just  to get rid of it.
B) Hire a professional that you know can get you the full value for the property.
C) Put it on some obscure list that people...
