As many of you know the DOD (Department of Defense) has been looking for a solution for all of the Military folks who have received orders to move, and are now upside down on their homes. Being upside down on your home is an issue for any homeowner when their job decides to leave the area. This gives the average homeowner two main choices to avoid foreclosure.......rent out the house, or short sale the property. This presents a HUGE issue for military families. Why you ask? When you short sale a home it does effect your credit. Now it effects everyone different but if you've already got so-so credit a short sale could put you into a credit status of distress. This can change security clearance for military personel. BIG PROBLEM when you are required to have certain security clearance t...

With home buyers on the hunt these days for great deals Short Sales/Foreclosures have become a hot topic.  For buyers a short sale can be a great buy. They can also become very discouraging to a new buyer who is searching for their dream home. If you want to have a smooth transaction with a short sale here are a few helpful tips. Choose a buyers agent who is VERY familiar with short sales, and well versed on what lender requirements are to lend on a home. Often times no repairs will be completed, but lenders won't loan without certain fixes. This puts buyers and sellers at an impass. Make sure that the listing agent is having the seller sign the contract. Without a seller signing a contract(even on short sales) it doesn't count. You might as well put it in a shredder. Verify that the L...

Let there be life! Yes it is true the Oakleaf Village center is finally coming to life. For the last few years many Oakleaf residents have driven past the half constructed houses near the Oakleaf Village Center and wondered, "what is going on with this place?" After the long wait, the houses are now being taken over by a local builder. The houses will be finished off to the original style and even better quality that what was planned way back in 2006. And the cost?... This is great news for the people who would like to buy in this neighborhood, now the houses are essentially half price! Some of the houses in there were priced well into the $400,000's and today the new builder will be selling the houses ranging from the $170's to the low $300's depending on the size and features. The cur...

When you look at todays financial markets, and listen to the news you may think that you wouldn't be able to get a mortgage. The truth is that Yes, mortgage lenders have tightened up their underwriting guidlines but your average person can still qualify for a good loan with little to no money down! You may wonder how this is possible. Well, two "oldies but goodies" have come back into the financing ballgame. FHA and VA Loans. Although VA (our 100% loan option)has certain requirements in terms of military service, FHA is open for anyone buying their primary residence. FHA requires only a minimal 3.5% down payment. On your average $150,000 home, that is just $5,250 down payment.  That is very little to get into a house for and if most folks start planning now, they could realize the drea...

State Farm announced today (Jan. 27, 2009) that it will no longer be providing insurance for over nearly a million Florida Homeowners.  For those of you who remember or heard about it, State Farm waged a fierce battle in 2008 to increase their rates approximatly 47%. On January 12, 2009 Florida regulatored denied State Farms request. Although State Farm will be discountinuing their homeowners insurance, they will continue with their other divisions in Florida, including auto, which has about 2.8 Million customers.

The Office of Insurance Regulation has 90 days to approve State Farms plam. If approved, State Farm must then provide 180 days notice to customers be...
