A couple of weeks back, the ultimate authority on Farmington Hills mortgage rates hadn’t minced words. That was Freddie Mac, whose opinion about mortgage rates constitutes the final say in the matter. Freddie isn’t modest about its preeminence (Freddie’s trademarked corporate slogan is “We make home possible”). Together with sibling Fannie Mae, the quasi-governmental entities stand behind 60% of U.S. mortgages.                                                                                                                  Each week their PMMS survey collects data snapshots from thrifts, credit unions, banks, and mortgage lenders to gauge of the direction of the home loan market. Future Farmington Hills home hunters and the homeowners whose properties are found in the current listings (o...

Who doesn’t love an open house? Sometimes, the answer to that question, it turns out, is the Realtor® hosting it.Not that the idea of pairing someone with his or her dream home isn’t thrilling, but there are plenty of moving parts agents need to put in place before presenting a home to the public.From signs and balloons to snacks and pets, the struggle is real. So real, in fact, that there’s a hashtag to lament these common #openhouseproblems. Check out this list and see if you’ve experienced any yourself.1. Shoe switcheroo This photo definitely makes a case for wearing uncommon footwear. Though it may seem a tad unprofessional, it could be time to bust out your old Chuck Taylors or Birkenstocks!2. Toilet troubles It’s important to stay hydrated, but not having access to a usable toilet...

When news of the Equifax hack first broke, the credit ratings giant scrambled to minimize fallout from this massive personal information breach. After an initial embarrassing misstep (they tried to have affected consumers sign off on Equifax’s liability), the company moved to ameliorate the hack by offering free ID protection to consumers.Farmington Hills homeowners and potential home buyers had reason to do more than shake their heads at yet another electronic pratfall. In one way or another, most Farmington Hills real estate transactions involve creditworthiness appraisals that are managed by the three credit reporting agencies (Equifax is one). That means that among the 143 million consumers it admits could be “potentially impacted” are certainly a lot of current and future Farmingto...

 Even investors whose Farmington Hills rental homes have served long and well as income-producers can eventually decide it’s time to sell. Given today’s tight housing inventories, the current market does stack up as one where selling your tenant-occupied house can be a timely financial move.But if that is under consideration, what should you do about the current tenant? Is it better to wait until the current lease expires—so that the vacated property can be shown without having to deal with an inconvenienced (and possibly miffed) tenant? Or will it be better to go ahead and list the property while it’s still occupied? Michigan landlord-tenant laws will have to be observed in any case, and specifics depend on the terms of the rental agreement, but experience teaches that following a few ...

Last weekend’s regular Michigan news should have been promoting all the usual upbeat feature stories about the onset of football season, the start of a brand new school year, the finals of tennis’ last grand slam tournament and the like—but Farmington Hills readers would have gotten eye strain trying to find any of them. Instead, the dark clouds brought by Hurricane Irma and Harvey cast dense shadows across the region and the nation’s news. It was certain, too, that even after the terror of their actual passages had subsided, the fallout would continue to reverberate—expensively—for a very long time.A Good News Item Buried in Farmington Hills’s Hurricane CoverageWhat was covered was how the prayers of millions not directly affected were being answered by many thousands of Good Samaritan...

Successful Farmington Hills real estate agents almost universally share some common personality traits. Among them is one skill that’s not usually mentioned when it comes to real estate agent requirements. By the time we’ve been on the job for long, Farmington Hills real estate agents have necessarily become really experienced and skilled drivers!When I’m chauffeuring a buyer on a Farmington Hills property tour, the car radio is turned down. That’s because we have much to chat about—everything from impressions from the homes we’ve just seen and background information on the next to the latest intelligence on neighborhood happenings. It’s an enjoyable part of my day.But when I’m by myself, driving solo to or from an appointment, the radio is probably on. That’s how I know that all summer...
