It is thought among the real estate industry that nearly all home buyers make their buying decision before they even get out of the car. They either immediately fall in love or fall out of love. If they love it enough from first site they will walk through the home to validate their initial feelings.  Therefore curb appeal is very crucial.  Remember the old saying "You never get a second chance to make a first impression".  So ... what can you do to prepare your home?Look around the outside everywhere. Are the shrubs neatly trimmed? Is there fresh mulch? Is everything nicely painted? Are there any missing of faded shutters or window boxes? How's the mailbox? What about the front door? A very popular thing these days is "Outdoor Living".  Whether it's an impromtu get-together, a planned ...

 Beginning January 1st - 2017,  households will be able to get larger FHA loans for their home purchase. In high-cost areas like San Francisco and Washington, D.C., borrowers will be able to get loans as high as $636,150, almost $11,000 more than what they were able to get in 2016. In low-cost areas, they’ll be able to get loans for up to $275,665 which is up from $271,050.The higher limits stem from changes the Federal Housing Finance Agency, which oversees secondary mortgage market companies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, made to the limits on conforming loans. These are conventional loans packaged into securities and backed by Fannie and Freddie for sale to investors. The new limit for these loans is $424,100 in most markets, up from $417,000.Do you have a HOME TO SELL?  Are you LOOKING...

 A few tips to ward off robbery while selling your home ... Keep home and outdoors looking fresh and maintained in all seasons.  Make sure there are no newspapers laying around, mail and packages aren't left to pile up on the doorstep. Also, make sure shrubbery is well maintained and left to grown out of control because this is an exellent place for burglars to hide behind them between the strub and your home.  The power of lighting is important.  Criminals are much less likely to break into a well lit entrance or home versus a dimly or poorly lit residence.  They don't want to be seen. Consider landscape lighting that is on a photo cell as well.   Use technology to make your home look occupied by installing systems that allow you to remotely control your lighting, music and appliances ...
