Remodeling? Don’t Forget the Permit

Saturday, October 22nd, 2011


A question I am frequently asked by both buyers and sellers centers around the issue of permits.

It may be an owner who is trying to sell their home and work has been completed without permits, or a potential buyer who is faced with a home they really like but it lacks some permits.

In an ideal world, all major improvements would have permits.  Realistically, it will come down to a personal decision. Please let me know if I can be of help on this issue and read this article for further information.

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

While I treat real estate as a serious business, I also like to step back and enjoy the lighter side of my industry to help me keep things in perspective. Nothing does this better than “listening to what kids think”, so enjoy this video.  Click on the link below.

Downpayment Sources For Recent Home Buyers, 2005-2010

Sunday, October 16th, 2011

Ever wonder how the “typical buyer” comes up with their down payment and how this has changed over the past 5 years?

One interesting finding in this “Profile of Home Buyers” survey by the National Association of Realtors, is that there was a 16% increase in the use of their “savings” as the source of downpayment.

It will be interesting to see how 2011 compares when that data is compiled! Read this post below for more insight.

Lower ‘Jumbo’ Loan Limits Are Coming

Monday, August 15th, 2011

Here is an informative article on the current conforming mortgage limits that are scheduled to expire September 30th.  With limits for the most expensive markets falling to $625,500 from $729,750 in the contiguous U.S., it would be wise to act quickly before these loan limits are reduced.

I am happy to answer any questions you have and to do what I can to help you secure the home of your dreams.

Buyers and Sellers Speak Their Mind

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

When potential buyers and sellers ask me why they should work with me, I point out that – more than anything – my job is to listen to their needs and help educatethem so that they can make the best possible decision based on their situation.  Only after I have done this, will I earn their trust.  The following article from Realtor Mag expands on the importance of these important skills.
