U.S. Revival Stands to Influence Florida Home Prices

19 Mar

U.S. Revival Stands to Influence Florida Home Prices

The truism has it that real estate is the most local of assets. If you exclude California-style earthquakes, the land a home is built upon tends to stay pretty much in one place. That being the case, Cascades St. Lucie West home prices tend to reflect our local Florida conditions: when business is popping and everyone feels confident about the future, Florida home prices tend to move upward.

Even so, as the complete numbers roll in from last year’s national real estate market, anyone with a rooting interest in Florida home prices has to be cheered.

The fact is, American home prices climbed 5.9% last year – the greatest yearly gain since 2006. Calling that only a ‘sharp’ rise is like calling the Super Bowl an ‘interesting’ football game. So, even though Cascades St. Lucie West home prices reflect local conditions, that kind of jump indicates the kind of national movement that is bound to echo through every corner of the country.

The U.S. Census Bureau and the Department of Housing and Urban Development also report that new national housing starts rose in 2012’s final month to an annual seasonally-adjusted rate of 954,000 (way more than the experts expected).  It sounds like a big number, and it is — an increase of 12% from the revised November rate of 851,000, and a gain of 36.9% over the previous year’s 697,000!

The National Association of Homebuilders also reported a third consecutive six-year high in its builder confidence index. It’s still below the point NAHB considers builder “optimism” balances with builder “pessimism,” but moving strongly in the right direction.

Now that we’re at a point where we can look back over last year’s performance, it’s easy to look back and say “That year sure would have been a good time to buy or sell!” To me, it looks likely that this time next year, we’ll have more of the same.

If 2013 is the year you’re considering making a move, I would be genuinely delighted to put together a plan of action that fits your goals and your timetable.  I hope you’ll give me a call!

Having the right real estate agent means having an agent who is committed to helping you buy your new home with the highest level of expertise in your local market. This commitment level has helped Bold Real Estate Group build a remarkable track record of delivering results

Helpful Questions To Ask The Seller Before Moving In

20 Mar

Cascades Furnished Home For Rent.  Gorgeous turnkey LIMOGE builder’s model features spectacular lake views from the family room and large master bedroom.  Professionally decorated with lots of built-in area in spacious family room, neutral 18″ ceramic tile in living areas.

Helpful questions to ask the Seller before moving in. Buying a new home is a very exciting time.  There are many things to do and to get done and many things to remember.  Sometimes you can hardly wait until the seller moves out so that you can have the house all to yourself.  But wait just a minute -I would be willing to bet that the seller has loads of information that could make your life a whole lot easier once the house is yours.  It is to your advantage to gather a list of important questions and talk to the seller if possible.

It is generally not considered appropriate for the buyer to just knock on the seller’s door or call them directly and start asking questions.  However, talk to your realtor about helping you get your questions answered before the seller has moved and is no longer available.

Here is a list of important questions that in all of the excitement you may not have thought to ask.

1. Do you have any information about the repair history of the house

2. Do you have any warranty paperwork and owners manuals for anything that is staying with the house

3. Do you have paint colors available so that they can be matched for touch ups etc.

4. Do you have the phone numbers for any contractors you have used for repairs and landscaping on the house.  You may want a contractor that is familiar with the house or perhaps you like the way the lawn looks and would like to keep the landscaping service

5. Where are the best restaurants, dry cleaners, daycare centers etc. located

6. Is there a neighborhood watch program and how do you get in touch with the organizer

7. Is there a Homeowners Association and where is the clubhouse – if applicable

8. What are the trash days and what are the requirements.  Is there a trash bag limit and what do you do with bulk items

9. What is the history of the house.  Things that are not disclosed on the disclosure form – such as an interesting story, the prior uses of the house, do they have a set maintenance schedule in place.  Is there anything that works but is a bit quirky when operating it.  This could save you hundreds of dollars in unnecessary repairs when you find out something works but is just a bit quirky

10. Don’t forget to leave the garage door openers

11. Where are the emergency cut offs, the breaker box and utility meters and any tools needed to use them.  What about that wrench that is needed to operate the fireplace – is it available

12. Don’t forget to ask about the sprinkler system, landscape lighting, septic tank, basement pumps, pool pumps, well pumps, hot tubs operating systems.  All of these items may be things you know how to operate or possibly not.  So it is best to ask.

Hopefully, these questions will help make the transition to your new home as smooth as possible.  Don’t forget to talk to your realtor, they may have additional questions that would be pertinent to ask about the home you are going to be moving into.  Your realtor is there to help you in any way they can so don’t hesitate to ask if you need help with something.  That is what they are there for.

Unique Ways To Fund Your Downpayment

12 Jan

Unique Ways To Fund Your Downpayment

One of the biggest concerns many people have when it comes to buying a home is coming up with the down payment.  Or perhaps coming up with a down payment that is large enough to lower their monthly payment.   These are very legitimate concerns ; therefore, we have come up with some unique ways to help you afford your down payment.

1.  The most popular(and maybe not so unique) is to dip into your savings account

2.  Hit up some of your friends – who knows what kind of money they have lying around

3.  Ask all of your relatives – if all of your relatives can give a little, perhaps you can reciprocate the next time they need a favor

4.  Check with your 401k administrator – in certain cases you can borrow some money from it without penalties

5.  Look at your entire portfolio – do you have stock proceeds you can use or maybe you could sell some stocks to beef up your down payment

6.  What assets to you have – do you have anything that you could sell to come up with that extra down payment

7.  Sometimes, depending on the lender , a co-signer might be an option

8.  Does your city offer any down payment subsidy programs – sometimes these subsidies are $5000 to $10,000 – this is free money – who doesn’t want free money.  This will also significantly lower your monthly payments as well

9.  Some banks still offer zero percent down – which means you have no down payment – these are usually reserved for first time home buyers with extremely good credit

10. Perhaps you might consider a lease with an option to buy

11.  Sometimes a seller is willing to fund part or all of your down payment just to get the deal – this is called a carry back mortgage – it will help the seller sell their home faster and help the buyer buy a home that they could not otherwise afford

12.  Talk to your lender about a second mortgage

There are many, many ways to fund your down payment.  Ask your realtor to help you come up with the options that will work best for you.  You might be surprised at just how well versed they are in helping buyers reach their down payment goals.  So use their experience to your advantage and don’t let a little thing like a down payment get in your way.
