    Why NOW is the time to buy!

    Picture early 1980′s when you wanted to purchase a home the interest rates were 18%, people stood in line for 13%. Now picture today 2013, interest rates for a 30 year fixed is 3.34%.  Imagine purchasing a home for $200,000 at 18% principal and interest was $3,014 and today at 3.34% the payment is $880. Now is the BEST time to buy? What do you think? These rates will not last much longer!

  • Home prices will continue to rise, anywhere from 5 to 7 percent in 2013 from 2012.

    Home prices will continue to rise, anywhere from 5 to 7 percent in 2013 from 2012.

    These prices will be driven by continued competition among investors in the distressed market, as well as a return to the market of organic move-up buyers. A lack of supply in some local markets could push prices there even higher, but the concern is that prices would rise faster than incomes, which could leave some potential buyers on the sidelines.

  • The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012

    Posted Under: Home Buying in Orlando, Home Selling in Orlando, Financing in Orlando  |  January 13, 2013 8:10 AM  |  525 views  |  No comments

    Congress passed a bill yesterday, The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 (Sec. 202) which extends the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act through December 31, 2013. This legislation extends dozens of other tax cuts that have expired or are set to expire at the end of the year, including one that extends homeowners’ ability to deduct the cost of mortgage insurance on a qualified personal residence.

    Under the federal tax code, all types of forgiven debt are treated as income, subject to regular taxes. Because of the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act, homeowners who get their mortgage debt forgiven through either a short sale or loan modification won’t be taxed on the amount forgiven up to $2 million.

    This law was set to expire December 31, 2012. If it hadn’t been extended, any forgiven amount of debt would be considered taxable income, which would be devastating for homeowners who are already experiencing financial hardship.

  • The Social Benefits of Homeownership

    Posted Under: Quality of Life in Orlando, Home Buying in Orlando, Home Selling in Orlando  |  January 11, 2013 8:07 AM  |  373 views  |  1 comment

    The Social Benefits of Homeownership

    Education success; children of homeowners tend to have higher achievement levels in math and reading.  The children tend to have less behavior issues.  Teens whose parents own a home are more likely to stay in school. 

    Homeowners vote more.   They spend more hours volunteering and know more people in their neighborhood.

    Homeowners report a higher quality of life, a higher self-esteem and a great control over their lives.

  • Smart Way to Save on Mortgage: Make Extra Payments

    Posted Under: Home Buying in Orlando, Financing in Orlando, Investment Properties in Orlando  |  January 8, 2013 8:30 AM  |  362 views  |  No comments

    Smart Way to Save on Mortgage: Make Extra Payments

    Yes, you read that right. Making extra payments - while it doesn't sound like it - will help you save money on your mortgage costs.

    Here's the logic, according to the Federal Reserve's mortgage refinancing guide: "By paying a little extra on principal each month, you will pay off the loan sooner and reduce the term of your loan."

    For example, the Federal Reserve says that by adding $50 each month to your principal payment on a $200,000, 30-year loan at 6 percent, you could reduce your loan term three years and pocket more than $27,000 in interest costs.

    So, can you see how extra payments now, can pay off later?

    If it’s hard for you to come up with some extra money each month, think of the disposable cash you are using for those fancy lattes or going out to dinner three times a week. It all adds up, so you'll have to figure out what to sacrifice to come up with that extra cash.
