What Can the Dream Home Finder Program Do for You?

In today’s hot market, finding the right home to meet your needs can be a difficult task. This is true
regardless of your real estate goals.

Listings come on and off the market so quickly that many prospective buyers are left feeling a little
defeated. Thankfully, I have a solution for this. And today I’m going to share it with you.

Allow me to introduce you to the Dream Home Finder Program. This solution allows you to find the perfect property without ever facing competition. All you have to do is write a wishlist of specifications you want in a property, and I’ll take care of searching for you.

School district, square footage, layout, and other home features are all attributes you should include when making your wish list. I will be happy to take it upon myself to spend my own time,
money, and energy, on making your real estate dreams a reality.

price than other properties in the market.

If you have any other questions, would like more information, or would like to meet to discuss and
develop a wishlist for your dream home, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward

Good Tax News for Business Owners

I’ve got good news for business owners and other self-employed individuals. Keep reading to find out what it is.

Today I want to share with you some news that will be of special interest for those of you who are business owners, contractors, and otherwise self-employed.

The good news is that if you have had your business for over four years and you have a good credit score of 720 or higher, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac only require your most recent tax return, as opposed to the last two years.

If you know of anybody that this tip could help, go ahead and forward this article to them.

The way it stands now, you need a $100,000 average over two years in income to qualify for the purchase of a home. Now, with their new underwriting system, only one year of income over $100,000 is needed to qualify. This will be great savings for you.

If you know anybody that this could help, share this with them. If you have any other questions in the meantime or you’re looking to buy or sell a home soon, don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. I would love to hear from you soon.

The Demographics of the Market

Market demographics are important. What sorts of people should mature buyers be paying attention to when they want to sell?

In previous entries, I’ve discussed creative ways that mature buyers, aged 62 or older, can purchase homes and get financing in order to compete with first-time homebuyers. Since then, I’ve gotten some feedback, and I noticed a number of people asking about demographics. Who are these first-time homebuyers? Based on a statistical survey from the National Association of Realtors, for the last four years, 34% to 36% of buyers coming on to the market have been millennials. This group is defined as the generation of people born after 1981—those between the ages of 37 and 17. Of those 36%, roughly two-thirds are first-time homebuyers, and the other 12% are buyers in their thirties who are often move-up buyers.

34% to 36% of buyers coming on to the market are millennials.
We can see the trend of mature buyers selling their homes to move into a retirement home, out of the area, or out of state at the same time that 12% of millennials are moving to a suburban area to look for single-family homes. Demographics are important. The selling season will be starting in the next two months, and the market is heating up. With that in mind, agents should know who their customers are so that when you go to sell, they’ll have an idea of how to cater to the buyers on the market. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me. I'd be happy to help you.
