Tips for sellers: How to get buyers to notice your home (continued)December 17, 2009Here are some more simple ways to make your house look its best for showings without spending much money.  If you missed last week's blog, check it out to see how to add curb appeal to your house for sale. 1. A Nice Entryway Impress buyers right off the bat with a beautiful entrance. Think about things such as adding a fresh coat of paint to the front door.  Door handles are also a first impression.  When we went through our house before we bought it the first thing I noticed was the chipped and weathered door handle on the front door.  It didn't stop us from buying the house but I could see how many potential buyers could see a door handle in poor repair as a bad first impression.  And, of course, the day we bought the house was the day that door handle was replaced. If you have a nice entryway make sure the space is used appropriately.  A simple bench and/or a coat rack or coat hooks is very fitting. And if you don't have an entrance at all consider "creating" one. This can be done by cleverly placing furniture, such as a console table, to create more of an entryway. Update those Fixtures:In a way fixtures are like the jewelry of a house.  Most people probably won't inspect the hardware or doorknobs, lights or faucets but they do subconsciously notice it.  It might be the one thing that sets apart one house in the buyers mind from another but they may not be able to pinpoint it exactly.   Consider updating a fixture that may be out of place or not matching the rest.  For example, in our house there was a cheap gold light fixture above the kitchen but a nice updated fan in the living room that you could see from the kitchen.  For less than $100 we were able to replace the kitchen fixture to match the other updated fixture and it looked so much nicer.  Check back next week as I will share some more easy and inexpensive ways to get your house in tip top shape to sell in order to get buyers attention.

Tips For Sellers: How to get buyers to notice your homeDecember 7, 2009 Over the next two weeks I will be sharing some ideas for sellers for how to make your house more appealing to buyers.  These are simple but effective tips.  Lets start with the basics- Create some curb appeal!Many home searches are now done on websites (i.e. like mine: www.ryanvaught.com).  Buyers like to be able to search for a home in the privacy of their own space and make a list of houses they wish to view.  There is an upside and a downside to this-they are the same!  You only get one chance to make a solid impression with the photos you choose to have posted of your house.  The front of the house is the first thing that buyers see and they may not even bother "cliciking" on the listing if they are not pleased with your houses curb appeal.  Follow these simple tips to get your house ready for its important picture day (or vitrual tour)- and make sure you know when your realtor plans on taking the pictures of your house so you can be prepared. 5 Simple Steps to creating curb appeal:Consider the paint job: Is it looking a little worn?  Painting a while house can be expensive but consider key features you may want to consider having painted in order to spruce up your house.  I.e. possibly painting the trim, the front door and/or the mailbox.  How are your digits looking? Yes, I am referring to your address number on the front of your house.  Is it really outdated or worn looking?  This is a very cheap fix but can really help update your house.Is the grass greener on the other side?  How does your yard look, specifically the front yard?  Is the grass green?  If not-make the cheap investment in some fertilizer and a hand held spreader and get going on making the grass pop!  Also, make sure the yard is well groomed; grass is trimmed and edged and plants and flowers are pruned.  One last note-if you have bark in your front yard consider re-barking your yard to make your yard look extra groomed.Accessorize but don't go overboard: Have a front porch but no furniture on it?  Consider spending a little money to purchase a nice outdoor bench or something simple that fits the space.  Buy a nice simple door mat that is welcoming.  If it's Christmas time consider hanging a nice but simple wreath on the front door that possibly matches your door or compliments it. Is the house the first thing you see or the cars?Make sure to not have any cars in the driveway for pictures.  Better yet, make sure to not have any cars in the driveway the entire time your house is for sale (if it's possible to park somewhere else).  This will ensure that the house is the first thing buyers notice rather than the cars.Check back later this week and next for more simple and effective ways to make your house more appealing to buyers.

Top 10 Home Buying Mistakes That Can Cost You: Mistake #1 Waiting for the market to improve or not buying at allNovember 3, 2009 Finally!  We've made it to the #1 home buyers mistake that can cost you:Waiting for the market to improve or not buying at all. No one can can read the future and knows exactly where the market is going, so trying to time your home purchase with the bottom of the market is probably not the best idea. If you're financially (#1) ready and have compelling reasons for owning a home (i.e. it would save money in the long run because you are paying more for rent, you need more space with your growing family etc.) then it's probably a good time to buy. Just think: all the time you spend procrastinating on purchasing a home, you could be building equity, getting tax deductions and enjoying the many other benefits of home ownership! Just remember-when you are signing a home loan for 30 years, for example, that means that you are saying you will be able to make the payments for the next 30 years.  So consider things such as; what would you do if you need to sell in the next 30 years and the price of your home has gone down from when you bought it (would you be able to rent it out, could you sell it at a loss, etc)?  Make sure you are making the right decision for you that is financially smart and responsible.

Top Ten Mistakes Homebuyers Make: Mistake #2 Making an offer without contingenciesOctober 27, 2009 Having a back-out plan is a must for smart home buying. If the home has an irresolvable flaw, it doesn't appraise for the purchase price, or your lender refuses to fund your loan, having contingencies on your contract gives you the right to cancel the transaction. Think about it this way: would you spend $100 in a store that doesn't have a 30-day return policy? If your answer is no, you wouldn't want to put hundreds of thousands of dollars on the line without the right to bail. This is why it is important to have a real estate agent working for you that understandings all of the ins and outs of real estate.  Make sure that you have contingencies on your offer.  Some typical contingencies are: that the home inspections comes out smoothly, a contingency that your house will sell in order for you to buy the house you are putting an offer on and that your loan will be approved. If you are looking for a real estate agent in or around Chico, California to represent you, consider calling me.  I would be happy to chat with you about what your real estate need are-buying or selling or even both!Ryan Vaught, Real Estate Broker(530) 343-2959 Information for this blog obtained from: http://www.frontdoor.com/Buy/Top-10-Home-Buying-Mistakes-That-Can-Cost-You/55152/p2 Take a look at my market report for today!http://www.ryanvaught.com/chicomarketreport Currently Ryan has about 30+ listings in inventory, and has sold 25 homes in 2009.

Real Estate Joke: Closing GiftOctober 15, 2009 Here's a clever joke I found on http://realestatejokes.nationalrealtorsdirectory.com/. Enjoy! A client bought a new home and the broker wanted to send flowers for the occasion. They arrived at the home and the owner read the card; it said "Rest in Peace". The owner was angry and called the florist to complain. After he had told the florist of the obvious mistake and how angry he was, the florist said. "Sir, I'm really sorry for the mistake, but rather than getting angry you should imagine this: somewhere there is a funeral taking place today, and they have flowers with a note saying, "Congratulations on your new home".

Most homebuyers know they should read these papers, but have no clue what to look for and wonder if they should be perusing the pages there and then, in front of the notary, Realtors and maybe even sellers and attorneys (on the clock, of course). Let the high drama begin. Fortunately, out of the 6-inch stack of title and loan docs, there are a select few documents and items that are truly critical: Essential Details. Peruse the entire package to ensure that your name (and your co-buyer's name(s)) and the property's address are accurate and appear the way you would like them to show on the County records. Typos are not infrequent, but they are super easy to have corrected. The Note. This is your promise to repay the loan. Look for the loan amount, the term of the loan, interest rate, monthly payment, due dates, late fees and other critical terms like whether there is a balloon payment or prepayment penalty. Make sure these details jive with the good faith estimate you were given early on in your transaction. The Mortgage or Deed of Trust. This paper secures your IOU (the note) with the property, allowing the lender to take your home back if you fail to pay. It should list any "riders" -- additional documents that add terms to the note, like an adjustable rate rider or prepayment penalty rider. Check to be sure that any riders listed on the mortgage or deed of trust are included in the document package. Estimated HUD-1/Settlement Statement. Review this standardized list of closing costs, debits and credits to your escrow to ensure that it accurately reflects seller credits agreed on in the contract, deposits you've made, and inspection or appraisal fees that you have had billed to escrow. Strange as it may seem, the closing table is not the place to read your closing documents. Smart homebuyers ask their Realtor, mortgage professional or escrow holder to provide them with a copy of their closing documents as far in advance as possible, ideally at least 72 hours before the signing appointment. This gives you time to review the documents, discuss them with the appropriate pros and initiate revisions, if necessary.

Top Ten Mistakes Homebuyers Make, Mistake #3: Not reading the fine printOctober 6, 2009 If you did your homework, you had your trustworthy real estate attorney review all your paperwork and discuss it with you so you don't get a nasty surprise at closing. Let's face it -- you won't have time to read that six-inch stack of legal documents at the closing table. Fortunately, there are a select few documents and items that are truly critical, and you can request a copy of these in advance. This gives you time to review them and ask questions before closing.Buying a home is a life-changing event that involves 3 M's: mortgage, money and moving, so it's natural to experience some stress. Factor in today's market -- with tighter credit restrictions and a tougher buying process -- and you've got more drama than you need. Perhaps you don't get approved for a mortgage or find a home you like. Or if you do, you don't know how much to offer or get outbid by another buyer. What if your closing costs end up being more than you expected?Check back later this week to find out the 10 surefire ways to take the drama out of buying a home.

Top Ten Mistakes Homebuyers Make: Mistake #4: Forgoing a home inspectionOctober 1, 2009 Even if a home looks flawless, it's a mistake to assume that it's actually problem-free. All homes have defects -- even fairly new ones and brand new ones.  So even though home inspections fall on the buyers list of things to pay for, getting a professional inspection before making the commitment to buy is crucial. Be sure to attend the inspection so the inspector can explain any issues. Home Inspection 101: Here's a glance at how home inspections are supposed to work: 1. Every house should be inspected.Otherwise, you're relying on the seller to be honest enough to tell you every thing that's wrong with the house. And, quite frankly, the home inspector very well could find something that the seller does not even know about. 2. You hire the inspector.You want him to work for you so search around and get advice from your realtor, but make sure you make the final decision on the home inspector.  A real estate company often has a list of home inspectors they like to work with. This does not mean you have to use one from the list. You can find lists of certified inspectors at the web sites of the two organizations that certify and train home inspectors: The National Association of Home Inspectors (NAHI) and the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI). 4. You will sign an agreement with the home inspector that outlines the scope of his work. The report you'll get about the house's condition after the inspection is for your eyes only and the inspector can only give it to the seller or real estate agent with your permission. 5. A thorough inspection of a 2,000-square foot home should take 2 to 3 hours. A good inspector: walks on the roof goes into the crawl space and attic removes the furnace and electrical panel covers to see what's inside checks all electrical outlets and switches opens and closes all windows and doors examines the insides of closets and the undersides of stairs checks walls, ceilings and floors for defects checks water pressure and drain function in plumbing fixture flushes toilets to make sure they work checks chimneys and flues to be sure they work checks the exterior of the home for signs of weather damage, decay and settling knows the soil and flooding problems in the area where you're buying. 6. Once he's finished with the inspection, the home inspector will go over the report with you, explain the defects he found and point out areas that may need maintenance in the near future. 7. You can ask the seller to correct the defects your inspector finds, or you can ask for money to make the repairs yourself. article obtained from: http://www.frontdoor.com/buy/Home-Inspection-101/27 Take a look at my market report for today!http://www.ryanvaught.com/chicomarketreport Currently Ryan has about 30+ listings in inventory, and has sold 25 homes in 2009.

Real Estate JokeSeptember 25, 2009 A little funny for your Friday.  Happy Weekend! Next week I will be back on track with mistake #4 of the top ten home buying mistakes. The FSBO:WHEN A real-estate agency hadn't sold our house, we decided to do it ourselves. I placed ads in the local papers, spray painted a "For Sale" message on a sign board and posted it outside.When my husband came home that evening, he told me, laughing, that my sign was the most truthful one he had ever seen. Confused, I rushed outside to take a look. In my haste I had printed - "For Sale by Ower."

How To Avoid Falling for "Love at First Sight"September 14, 2009 Buying the first house you look at it is kind of like marrying the first person you go on a date with -- not necessarily a good idea. The average homebuyer looks at least 10 homes over an eight-week search before making an offered. While you don't need to visit every home in the neighborhood, you should compare at least three homes before making a decision. Here are the top 4 reasons to shop around: You might find similar features in another home. When you go on your first showing, you have nothing to compare the home's pros and cons with. You might love the soaking tub in the master bathroom, but another listing nearby might have a better -- with a lower asking price. You'll learn more about each home's resale value. Shopping around can help you get a sense of the neighborhood, and can help you gauge which homes have been over-developed for the area. If you buy the nicest home on the block, your property won't appreciate at the same rate that the surrounding homes do, and you might have trouble selling when you choose to move on. You'll catch any red flags before you rush in. Rushing to the closing table can also cause you to miss serious maintenance issues. Finding "the surprise behind door number three" is only exciting on The Price is Right, so make sure you look in every room in the house. If any rooms are "off limits" during the showing, arrange to see them later and have your home inspector examine them carefully. You won't wonder if "the grass is greener" across the street. Surveying your options will also help you avoid buyer's remorse. If you buy without looking at several homes, you could end up feeling as though you've made a mistake. If you still love the first house you saw after visiting a few more listings, you can be confident in your decision to make an offer. article obtained from: http://www.frontdoor.com/buy/Dont-Fall-for-Love-at-First-Sight/2335 Take a look at my market report for today!http://www.ryanvaught.com/chicomarketreport Currently Ryan has about 30+ listings in inventory, and has sold 25 homes in 2009.

If you don't shop around and see what else is out there, you could miss out on a good deal or potentially regret your purchase.  While you don't need to visit every home in the neighborhood, you should compare at least three homes before you make a decision to ensure that you're getting the right house at the right price.  So, if you happen to think that the first house you view is the one you want to buy, just make sure to look around at some other houses and make sure you are getting what you really want.  Finding a home your really love usually takes time, patience and hard work.  Make sure you do your homework ahead of time to avoid buying a house that you find does not suit your needs.

Avoid Mistake #6, Buying a House You Can't Afford: Tally Your Expenses- ALL OF THEM!September  2, 2009 This is from a good article I found on www.frontdoor.comabout how you can avoid being in over your head on house payments if you are honest and conservative in figuring out all of your monthly expenses. In all your excitement about the prospect of buying a house, you'll be tempted to twist your financial numbers so you appear more desirable to a potential lender. Instead of admitting the balance on your Visa is $7,000, you give the more rosy figure of $5,000. It will be lower in a few months, right? Remember: Buy too much house and you'll be flat on your back financially. Be honest about what you spend and what you can afford house-wise. If you need more encouragement to be harshly honest about your expenses and comfort zone of monthly repayment, simply look at the number of home foreclosures nationwide this week. Before you decide how much you can afford in monthly mortgage payments, calculate your expenses, including (as applicable): Loans - car, student, etc. Insurance - home, car, life, health etc. Credit Cards Utilities Property Taxes (based on cost of the home you are interested in, or your own home -- for questions, call your local tax collector since rates vary) Food and Entertainment-eating out, groceries, movies, etc. Kids' School Retirement Accounts Trips/Vacations Gifts Doctors Charitable Contributions And yes, lenders will ask for paperwork backing up all these numbers. It is also a good idea to get pre-approved for a mortgage amount. Though this isn't written in stone, it will show sellers that you are serious. It will also help to keep you in check when you fall in love with a home priced too far out of your pre-approved range. But keep in mind, that just because the bank is willing to loan you "x" amount doesn't necessarily mean you should take it (or at least not the whole amount).  You know your financial situation best.  Keep in mind any future expenses that you know are inevitable (i.e. you want to put you child in a private school, you will be having another child, you need to replace your car soon, etc.).  It's best to be on the safe side and enjoy your home without the constant worry about the bills! Maybe that 3 bed, 2 bath house will suite your needs just fine, compared to the 4 bed/2.5 bath that will stretch your budget...

Top 10 Home Buying Mistakes That Can Cost You, Mistake #6: Buying a house you can't affordAugust 31, 2009 Just because a lender is willing to loan you a fortune doesn't mean you should take it. Buying more home than you can afford can quickly lead to financial trouble. As a rule of thumb, your mortgage payment should be less than 28 percent of your gross monthly income. Besides your mortgage payment, be prepared for the additional costs of homeownership, such as insurance, property taxes, utilities and maintenance. You may want to scale back the size of the home you're looking for in order to bring the whole package in line with your budget. Check back this week as I will be going over how to add up a true picture of your monthly expenses and then how to add up a realistic budget for home related expenses (i.e. mortgage, insurance, utilities, etc.).

What to Know About Fixer-Uppers: Is Buying a Fixer-Upper For You?August 26, 2009 Ambitious first time buyer?  Want a custom home but can't afford to buy new?  Not afraid of spending some cash and possibly getting your hands dirty and doing some work yourself?  Like the neighborhood and the price but not the condition?  If you answered yes to these questions then maybe you are a person that should consider the idea of buying a fixer-upper? Sometimes referred to as "handyman specials" and sometimes referred to as "red flags", fixer-uppers can range.  They are usually homes with physical problems that may go further than "skin deep".  Some of the problems are more cosmetic, such as peeling paint, broken windows, unsightly carpet and more.  And some are hidden deeper and only found upon a whole house inspection and might include faulty electrical systems, a bad foundation, etc. Many buyers want to go the safe, "known" route of buying a home that is in or near to move-in condition.  Fixer-uppers take a person with some real ambition and go-get-em personality that have time and cash or other financial resources (to pay for the repairs and fixes).  There is potential to be found in fixer-uppers but you must be careful to do your homework and get the help of professionals in order to make a sound decision about purchasing such a home. Here are some tips for those brave enough to consider buying a fixer-upper: Location, Location, Location! Make sure you find a house in a location you are content with.  If it's somewhere you plan on living consider the different aspects such as the neighborhood (are the other homes in good repair?) the noise level (freeways, trains, major roads) and also the area of town.  Also, consider location if you are planning on renting it. Have a professional inspection.  Yes, they are pricey (usually at least $250 in California) but it is really a necessary step to have a professional come give you their expert opinion.  They might end up finding a fix that is way beyond your budget before you are obligated and in escrow. Get estimates on any repairs and renovations that will be required and make sure they will more than pay for themselves in increased property value. Remember, in the end, the project will probably be more expensive and more time-consuming than you expected. Just make sure you know what you're getting yourself into- a BIG, possibly expensive and time-consuming project! But, if you end up getting a house you really love and is uniquely you in the end, then you will feel as though you have made a big accomplishment!

How to Choose a Neighborhood: Steps #4 & 5August 21, 2009 5 steps to finding a place where you belongHere are the last two steps, #4 & 5 to choosing a neighborhood.  If you missed the others, check out my blogs from earlier this week.  Hope these tips have helped you in your home search. STEP 4 -- Find the Clues Once you've done the background research, visit neighborhoods that made the preliminary grade in person. There's no better way to paint a real picture of life in the neighborhood. Use your senses to get a complete picture of the prospective community. Sights: Remember your first impression. What do you notice first about the neighborhood? Do the streets have curb appeal? Are the houses well-maintained? Do the shops and restaurants look hip and inviting? You'll want to feel good about where you call home, and impress buyers when you're ready to move on. Visualize yourself in the neighborhood. Think of your daily routine. If you can't live without a morning latte, is there a coffee shop nearby? Where will you walk your dog or go jogging? You'll enjoy the neighborhood more if it's easy to do what you like. Observe the neighborhood at different times of the day. Driving through will help you get a snapshot of life in the community -- good and bad. Do the roads turn into a parking lot after school or during rush hour? Are people using grills or decks in the evening? Are neighbors and kids socializing or do people keep to themselves? Are the streets well-lit at night? These visual clues can help you decide if you'll fit in. Make sure the local schools make the grade. Even if you don't have kids, pay a visit to the nearby schools. High ratings are great, but seeing the buildings is much more telling. It will be easier to sell your house later if the schools are nice. Look for warning signs. Be on the lookout for signs that the neighborhood is in trouble. Do you see abandoned buildings or vandalism? Are there a lot of "For Sale" signs or rentals? If the community goes downhill, so does your house's value. Sounds: Stop and listen. Bird and nature sounds are generally pleasant, but what about noise from the highway, airport, hospital, train tracks or nearby clubs and bars? It's not very relaxing to listen to trains screech by during your morning coffee -- especially not every morning. Talk to your future neighbors. Ask how they like the area, and get the dirt on anything they don't like about the place. What do they want to change? What's their favorite place to hang out? If they're rude to you, they probably wouldn't be good neighbors anyway. STEP 5 -- Close the Case You've chosen your neighborhood. Now for the hard part: finding a house you love. Luckily, you've narrowed it down to a few streets. Now, make sure to: Find out how much house you can afford. The amount of money a lender offers you is often more than you can truly afford to pay. Use FrontDoor's handy mortgage calculator to add all your current debts and see how much you can afford. You don't want to be stuck eating ramen noodles for the next 15 to 30 years. Compare your loan options. Ask yourself these basic questions to find out what mortgage is right for you.

How to Choose a NeighborhoodAugust 19, 2009 5 steps to finding a place where you belong Steps #2 & #3.  Check Monday's blog for step #1 on how to choose a neighborhood. STEP 2 -- Zero In on the AreaIf you're moving within the same city, you probably already know the various neighborhoods. Choose the ones that best match your list of wants. If you're moving to a new city, you'll have to do more research. This is where working with a Realtor familiar with the area can also help.  They can help you narrow down your choices, possibly based on how close you want to be to work, how close you want to live to public transportation, a good school district, etc. Then once you find an area or areas you like then start focusing your home search on that area. STEP 3 -- Get the SuspectsWith your area of choice in mind, start digging up information.  A realtor can also be helpful here and the internet is also helpful. School information: Look into the local public and private elementary, junior and high schools, as well as daycare programs. A good website for school accountability report cards and school ratings is: http://www.greatschools.net/ Crime statistics: Search online to try and find this information.  A good website for California resident to look up registered sex offenders in a given area is: http://www.meganslaw.ca.gov/Search.aspx?lang=ENGLISH . If you want to try and obtain more information about crime statistics, call the local police station.  A knowledgeable realtor should also have an idea of the areas that are known to have a higher crime rate. Parks and recreation: How far is it to the closest park or recreation center? Neighborhood associations: Does the community you're looking at have one, and, if so, are there lawn or construction restrictions? Is there a yearly fee? Tourist attractions: Get a guidebook or check out the convention and tourism bureau's Web site to see all the city has to offer. Check back later this week for steps #4 & #5 to choosing a neighborhood.

Top 10 Home Buying Mistakes That Can Cost You: Mistake #8: Not researching the neighborhoodAugust 17, 2009 Mistake #8: Not researching the neighborhood Week 3 of my 10 week series on home buying mistakes that can cost you.  This week we're looking at mistake #8, "Not Researching the Neighborhood". Here's the scenario: You've just moved into your dream home but you didn't have time or didn't even think to research the neighborhood and now, due to not liking the neighborhood, you are thinking your dream home might be your nightmare home...if only you had done your homework!  Make sure you go in the right order: Step #1- find a neighborhood/location you like, then step #2 find a home in that area! I am going to go over 5 steps to choosing a neighborhood that will fit your needs this week.  So let's jump right in with Step #1: Profile Your Perfect Neighborhood Before you start scrutinizing neighborhoods, turn the magnifying glass back on yourself. Think about what you're really looking for in a new neighborhood. Remember, you'll probably have to make compromises, so put the "must-haves" at the top and the "would- like-to-haves" at the bottom. Here are some things to consider: Do you have children or are you planning to have children in the near future? If you answered yes, then consider things such as the school district/neighborhood school and other important factors, such as parks nearby.  Even if you don't have school aged kids, consider that buying near a good school can actually be an asset to your property value. What type of home do you want? Are you looking to buy a single family home, duplex, condo, etc.? How far are you willing to commute? If you have a car, then how long is the drive?  Does it seem reasonable (make sure you factor in both getting there and returning each day)?  Do you plan on taking public transportation- then, if so, is it close enough to easily access? Do you want to be in an older more established neighborhood or a new development? If you aren't sure, weigh the pros and cons: older homes will have more mature landscaping, usually more variation in homes on a given street, but also more repair work and possibly not as energy efficient.  Newer homes have more modern features, usually are more nergy efficient, but don't have the established feel to the neighborhood and usually landscaping is still young. Think about what you don't want in a neighborhood, too. If you can't stand late-night noise, you'll probably want to steer clear of the college area or an area with a lively bar scene. Finally, make sure you visit a potential neighborhood you want to buy in several times and at different times of the day.

Ingredients of a Great Real Estate Investment Continued...#3 & #4August 14, 2009 Boost your odds for a successful resale down the road with these four essentials As promised from Wednesday here are #3 & #4 In-Demand Amenities to look for in  your next house.  If you haven't read Wednesday's blog, start there to read the #1 & #1 in-demand amenities. #3: Modern MustsMany buyers, 46% to be exact, are looking for a home with energy-efficient features.  These features include: newer, dual paned windows, Energy Star appliances, and a well maintained HVAC system.  Many buyers also want to be able to have cable and satellite connections, including access to high-speed internet. #4: Exterior ExcellenceWhen it comes to people, it's the inside that matters, but this is not true for a house- the outside of a house is definitely something buyers consider.  Buyers say that fenced back yards are a big want- for not only privacy but for pets as well.  And yes, location, location, location!  Consider where the house is- is it in a desirable area of town, is it in a good school district or even school zone?  Most people also like to be able to relax in their home in peace and quiet so don't forget to consider noise from things such as: highways, airports, hospitals, train tracks, etc. Overall, consider that home trends many times vary from state to state.  For example, the style of the housing, the square footage most desired, the lot size, etc.  So it's best to talk to a realtor about these things, especially if you are moving from afar (another state or clear across state) and are not familiar with the area.  As your Realtor what things are most desirable in the area you are moving to.  People might be willing to pay more for a house in the Northern California Valley where it's hot almost everyday of the summer, but in the Bay Area you may find that buying a home with a pool might actually not be a great choice, being that you won't be able to enjoy it very often in the fair-weathered area.  This brings up the last important point-always keep resale in mind. If you are getting that house with a pool in the Bay Area you may have a more difficult time when it comes time to sell finding a buyer that is willing to deal with all of the pool upkeep and expense for minimal use. If you have questions about the home trends in the Chico area please contact me and I would love to help steer you in the right direction.

Ingredients of a Great Real Estate Investment: Finding In-Demand AmmenitiesAugust 12, 2009 Boost your odds for a successful resale down the road with these four essentials If you're buying an investment property, buying your first home or buying your dream house it's important to think about the amenities.  If you plan wisely and purchase a property with these following "in-demand" amenities then when you go to sell you will be able to tip the resale scale in your favor. #1: The Coolest House on the BlockMost buyers want a cool house-literally, a cool house.  In a National Association of Realtors survey, almost 75% of the people ranked it as a "very important" house feature.  Being that adding central air is pricey it's probably not something you are going to want to have to add later if you change your mind.  So if you know the area where you are moving can have hot or even warm weather, strongly consider buying a house that has central air. #2: Essential StorageMost Americans like their stuff and want to have room to store it.  Over half of buyers say that having a garage with two or more bays is very important.  Buyers also love walk in closets in the master bedroom and ample storage throughout the house (i.e. hallway linen closet, hallway cupboards, kitchen pantry or ample cupboards, etc.). Check back tomorrow for #3 and #4 in-demand amenities to look for.

Top 10 Home Buying Mistakes That Can Cost You: Mistake #9: Thinking short-termAugust 11, 2009 Top 10 Home Buying Mistakes That Can Cost You: Avoid these blunders that homebuyers commonly make Mistake #9: Thinking short-term Shop for a home with your successors in mind. Look for buyer-friendly features, such as ample storage space. You want to think about purchasing a home that is a place that you and your family feel comfortable in, but don't forget the other side of it-home buying is probably the largest purchase you will ever make.  When shopping for a home it is a good idea to consider how long you think you will live in that home.  Then remember, too, that even if you are planning on moving up in, say, 5 years unknowns might pop up that keep you from moving up in your ideal time frame.  So try to find a home that you will be happy in for the long term, and don't just settle with something that will "work". Another thing to consider when buying your home is the resale value down the road if you do plan on moving again.  Consider things that will make your home more desirable to you, possibly, but also to future buyers such as: popular locations (i.e. in good school districts, quiet neighborhoods), key features many buyers look for (i.e. large kitchen, 2 car garage, central heating and air, sprinkler system, etc.).

Pre-qualification versus Pre-approval: Learn What The Difference IsAugust 7, 2009 I found this great article from www.frontdoor.com that does a great job explaining the difference between pre-approval and pre-qualification for a loan. Know Your Terms Before Looking for a Home Before you begin house-hunting, it's best to know from your lender if you pre-qualify or are pre-approved for a loan. The distinction between the two is that pre-qualifying determines how much a lender will lend you. It involves obtaining a letter from the loan officer who looks at your debt ratios, gross income, and work history to see if you're qualified to make the monthly payments. This usually can take weeks while you wait for a pre-qualifying letter. Pre-approval, on the other hand, takes it a step further and usually involves non-refundable fees. This process takes into consideration your credit history report, income verification, confirmation of down payment, and ability to pay closing costs. Once approved, the pre-approval letter lets the real estate agent and seller know you're qualified to negotiate terms. Why you should maintain a good FICO scoreDerived from your credit history report, credit scores are based on points you receive for being a good borrower. The most common scoring system used for mortgage approvals is done by the Fair Issac Corporation? (FICO?), which accesses the three main credit reporting bureaus (Equifax, TransUnion, and Experian.) Credit scores can range from a low of 300 points to a high of 850. People with average credit usually score around 620, good credit at 660, and excellent credit above 720. Example
  Someone with a credit score of 620 requesting a 30-year loan term for $215,000 may pay an APR of 7.60%. A score of 720 or higher would qualify you for a 6.00% APR (a difference of 1.60%) or a potential savings of $230 per month. Should your credit score fall below 620 then you're in the sub-prime mortgage category and your mortgage rate could go as high as 8.53%.
How to get the best rateA good strategy for securing the best rate would be to clean-up your credit report at least six months prior to applying for a mortgage loan. Maintaining a debt-to-income ratio of less than 36% could boost your score by as much as 10%. Lenders like to see a history of long-term credit and ability to pay off a loan over time. The goal of any loan applicant should be to make sure their credit report is as accurate and sound as possible. The lender should be able to provide you with a solid estimate of your closing costs and monthly payments. After you're approved, the lender will lock-in your rate for a specified period of time (usually 30 to 60 days). You should always seek the guidance of a licensed professional before making any major financial decisions.

Top 10 Home Buying Mistakes That Can Cost You, #10:Not getting pre-approved before house huntingAugust 5, 2009 Get ready to learn a lot!  For the next 10 weeks I will be blogging on some detrimental home buying mistakes that can really cost you.  Some of them may seem obvious, but there is more to them than the superficial title so read on.  I have found most of this information from one of my favorite user-friendly sources for real estate information for the public, www.frontdoor.com. Over the next 10 weeks I will take one home buying mistake a week and cover it in detail.  Even if you are not looking to buy a house right now, this is good information for any future home-buyer to have.  Also, if you are already a home buyer there are still things you can learn! Starting it off with #10, here they are: #10:Not getting pre-approved before house hunting Do you know how much of a home you can afford?  Well, most people think they have a good idea of what they can afford...until reality hits when they go through a pre-approval process.  You might be thinking, "oh, of course I could buy a half a million dollar home, no problem", when in reality lenders may not be willing to loan you that much and you may find with a pre-approval that you should really be looking at homes in the mid-300,000's range. Before you being you house-hunt it is crucial to get pre-approved for a loan amount.  This simply means you need to find a lender (i.e. you bank you bank at or possibly another bank or mortgage lending company) that you can trust and feel comfortable dealing with.  The mortgage professional you choose will then review your credit, income, assets and debts, and recommend a mortgage with monthly payments that fit your budget.  They will thenk come up with a pre-approved loan amount, or a "magic number" as I like to call it. This "magic number", will give you some clear boundaries for what you are really in the market to afford.  It is considered a "good faith estimate", a document that spells out the likely terms or you loan, including the prospected interest rate and closing costs associated with a certain loan amount. Besides knowing that magic number, being pre-approved for a certain loan amount will also let seller know that you are serious about buying a property and aren't merely a "looky-loo". Another great part of being pre-approved is you're not wasting time- your time, sellers time, or your realtors time by looking at homes that are out of your price range. Another side-note to consider is just because you are pre-approved for a certian amount doesn't mean you have to spend that much.  That pre-approval amount it ususally the highest loan amount a lender is willing to lend you. Check back later this week to learn about pre-qualification vs. pre-approval and more.

Searching For Your Next Home...Then Ask Yourslef These QuestionsJuly 29, 2009 Answering the following questions may assist you in determining the most important features you would like in your next home. It is important to prioritize your needs in housing and also recognize that compromising on less important features will help in narrowing your selection of homes. Remember that there is no "perfect" house. 1. Are there features in your current home that you would like in your next home? What are they? 2. Do you have a floor plan preference? I.E. do you want to have a dining and living room area, master bedroom away from other bedrooms, open floor plan, etc. 3. Do you prefer single story, two-story, or multi-level living? When considering this, you may want to take into account how long you plan on living there (would stairs ever be an issue?) and who you will have visit. 4. Do you want a yard? If so, how big, how small? 5. Are you looking for a maintenance free lifestyle? If yes,you may want to consider places, such as condos, where yard maintenance is usually included in HOA fees.  If condos aren't for you , then make sure you factor in how much you would have to pay for maintenance if don't want to have to do your own. Check back later this week for more questions to ask yourself when searching for your next home.
