medford real estate: Real Estate Inventory in Ashland Medford area is Down ...way Down - 03/15/12 02:31 PM
Current stats released from the RVAR/SOMLS show that the number of homes on the market is under 1200 units.  Wow that is a drop from about 1600 homes from the prior report!!!  and from the high inventory days of 4000 units of 2008.....the number of units is soooo much lower which would normally be a good thing for sellers, but since most of the homes on the market in the Ashland, Medford area are distressed, prices are not up yet.

Normal, non-distressed home sales accounted … (2 comments)

medford real estate: When will the Real Estate Market in Ashland and Medford recover? - 10/27/11 06:34 PM
I predict in two to three years!  why?
1.  There have been numerous home owners that lost their home in the last few years either by short sale or foreclosure.
2.  Most of these folks liked being home owners rather than renters.
3.  FHA and FNMA are "saying" that 2 to 3 years after a distress sale, a person may be able to buy again.
4.  Most of the people I talk to while they go through their distress sale ask me "how soon before I can buy a home again?"
5.  Most of the distressed sales have already occurred.  Yes, … (1 comments)

As a real estate professional, I must follow the Fair Housing laws.  There are certain things I am not allowed to discuss.  I can tell you talk to the local police department for crime statistics, but I can't tell you this is a good neighborhood in Ashland or bad neighborhood in Medford due to crime or ethic makeup.

medford real estate: Writing an offer to purchase a home requires a contract in the Ashland, Medford area - 08/09/11 06:40 PM
Writing an offer to purchase a home requires a contract in the Ashland, Medford area.  When it is time to buy a home, a real estate agent or your buyer's agent can help you communicate your Offer" in the form of a contract to a seller.  Once signed by the seller, the offer becomes the rules of the transaction.

medford real estate: Medford and Ashland Real Estate Agents try to Keep Owner financing - 06/22/11 06:04 PM
FYI-
The new Dodd-Frank regulation proposes new changes for owner carry or owner financing.  The proposed changes would require an owner to:
1.  Pre-qualify the buyers to the standards of conventional financing
2.  Require an appraisal
3.  NO balloon payments
4.  If loan is adjustable then borrow must qualify to the highest interest rate at their current income levels.
 
If Owner does not comply and buyer fails to make payments, the foreclosure process could be negated and the owner could face large penalties.
I got together a few other Medford and Ashland agents and contacted our State Lobbier to see … (1 comments)

medford real estate: A Factor to Consider when Pricing your Home to Sell in the Ashland, Medford area - 03/23/11 02:25 PM

One of the most important if not the most important measures of the real estate market's condition in the Ashland, Medford area is the absorption rate.  To figure this out, you first need to figure out the current properties for sale(active) in your market segment.  Step two, is figure out the number of properties sold in the last month.  You can do shorter or longer periods, but I think 6 months gives the best indication.   Divide current inventory by sold inventory and this will tell you how many months it will take to clear all the existing properties listed for … (0 comments)

According to RISMEDIA, November 24, 2010:
