Ever wonder when the right time to buy home is: The answer is almost certainly - right now! Of course, you have to make sure you can afford it and can qualify. But I have mortgage lenders to help with that process. But before you do that, don't take my word for it.

"Don't cut corners when selecting, updating properties"

A motto I've always followed when investing/flipping houses.  As appreciation begins to slow and interest rates rise, making money from a fixer-upper becomes less of a guaranteed win. A key to success is doing homework about what's a good contender to be transformed and how to avoid the biggest mistakes. Here are three mistakes I cite.

1. Choosing the wrong right location: A property is worth as much as its location. You should look for desirable amenities like shopping, entertainment outlets and recreation-and watch out for "irritants", such as bust streets and other sources of noise. To put it simply, your best deals are those properties that are neglected and need a little TLC but are in a…

money for home

As home prices rise by double-digit margins year over year, homeowners are increasingly viewing selling favorably. Consumers reported a significantly more positive view of home selling conditions month over month in January, jumping 16 percentage points on net, according to Fannie Mae’s Home Purchase Sentiment Index, based on a survey of 1,000 consumers.

Overall, the index’s monthly increase was driven largely by a substantial jump in the share of consumers reporting that it’s a good time to sell a home, with many citing favorable mortgage rates, high home prices, and low housing inventory as their primary rationale. Among owners and higher-income groups, however, the…

The Reactive Mode

The Reactive mode is when you react to situations that occur and are…

The housing market made an incredible recovery in 2020 and is now positioned for an even stronger year in 2021. Record-low mortgage interest rates are a driving factor in this continued momentum, with average rates hovering at historic all-time lows.

According to the latest Realtors Confidence Index Survey from the National Association of Realtors (NAR), buyer demand across the country is incredibly strong. That’s not the case, however, on the supply side. Seller traffic is simply not keeping up. Here’s a breakdown by state:

As the maps show, buyer traffic is high, but seller traffic is low. With so few homes for sale right now, record-low inventory is creating a mismatch between supply and demand.

NAR also just reported that the actual…

The United States real estate market has been fairly turbulent over the last several months. This — of course — has been due in large part to the cross-market uncertainty wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic. Young families, retirees, and early career professionals have abandoned their NYC and LA apartments in favor of more land and lower purchase prices. This migration — which began before the crisis due to skyrocketing rent prices — has exploded as more Americans shift to remote work. Holds on evictions and stay at home orders across the country have also contributed to this change. They have highlighted the housing crisis in large cities — leaving many renters, landlords, and property investors in the lurch. Follow below to learn more about how COVID-19…

The housing market recovery coming into the new year has been nothing short of remarkable. Many experts agree the turnaround from the nation’s economic pause is playing out extremely well for real estate, and the current market conditions are truly making this winter an ideal time to make a move. Here’s a dive into some of the biggest wins for homebuyers this season.

1. Mortgage Rates Are Historically Low

In 2020, mortgage rates hit all-time lows 16 times. Continued low rates have set buyers up for significant long-term gains. In fact, realtor.com notes:

“Given this means homes could cost potentially tens of thousands less over the lifetime of the loan.”
