Most of the homes listed here in Foreclosure aren't for sale, at least not yet. Some will complete foreclosure and either be sold at auction (cash only, no previews, no inspections or changing your mind) or taken back by the bank who will eventually list it for sale. Others may linger in foreclosure for a while, be resolved and not be put up for sale anytime soon. ... more

In order to obtain a FHA Loan for a condo purchase it's imperative to understand that the condo MUST be on FHA's Approved list. This can be found by visiting HUD's condo search:

Hello Dilan,

I wouldn't ask my physician to sell my house and he definitely wouldn't want me to operate, hahaha!!! Statistically speaking, over 90% of homeowners go to a Realtor (like me).
Experience and skill count more now than ever, especially when trying to get the most amount money. My job would be to get you the highest price, and then try to get more.
I have been doing real estate for 15 years and sold quite a few houses in Clinton Hill... Sometimes getting more than asking price.

Give me a call anytime Dilan... The advice is free.

Hi! The most recent 2 Family that sold on Prospect Pl was 296 Prospect Pl. It closed Oct. 8th, 2013 for $2.2M, or $841/ft. That being said the Brooklyn townhouse market is already significantly different now than it was in October. Values are state-of-market and property-type specific, so if you'd like to know how much a particular townhouse could trade for in the current conditions please reach out and tell me more about that property. I'm part of the Townhouse Division at Keller Williams NYC and am townhouse fanatic so I'd love to share some knowledge and learn about another house's history! ... more

Rent today; Buy tomorrow. How to convert from Tenant to Homeowner.

When I rented my first apartment in Astoria, I did not want to be a Tenant my whole life and pay my Landlordâ€s mortgage. I longed to become a Homeowner.

That’s why I found my way into the mortgage business in 1989 and soon afterward became a Homeowner. Here are the fundamentals any Tenant should know to prepare to become a Homeowner in the future, no matter when that might be.

• Credit: Establish 3 credit accounts, no more than 5. Pay your bills on time. Keep your balances to no more than 50% of your credit limit. Don’t pay off the accounts in full. Keep balances active for 12-24 months. All of the above will provide both a good credit score and adequate credit history to qualify for a mortgage loan.

• Assets: A basic savings budget isn’t hard to do. Pay your rent first in your budget; then set aside 10% of your income before taxes . Make it a budget priority and you’ll still have money left over for entertainment and restaurants and clothing.

How much money do you need to buy a home? Many buyers spend no more than $25,000 to buy their first homes. There are loan programs with low down payment requirements and many real estate agents negotiate for their Buyers a “Seller’s concession” to include the Buyer’s closing costs (which are HIGH here in New York!) in the price of the home.

• Income: Two years consistent income is the basic requirement for either a salaried individual or a self-employed person. Income from Bonus, Commission, and Overtime is treated differently and is best discussed with your Mortgage Banker.

• Market Survey: it doesn’t hurt to go out and get to know neighborhoods where you might like to buy a home. Visit open houses on Saturdays and Sundays. It’s okay that you’re not yet buying; tell the Realtor at the Open House you’re just beginning your “survey.” You’ll also get to know market prices for different kinds of homes. It’s okay to “window shop” homes on the weekend at Open Houses!

I hope these fundamentals will help you better understand the path to homeownership is a process that, with preparation and dedication, you can move through easily. And if you’re interested in getting Prequalified today to create an Action Plan for your future of Homeownership, call me anytime!
