Selling Your Home? Know Where The Buyers Are.

As a listing agent it is important to know where the buyer's are coming from so I know where to focus my marketing. Be sure your listing agent is spending their time, and advertising budget to attract buyers for your home. Afterall, it's more than putting a sign in the yard. Did you know only 10% of buyers found their home through a for sale sign or an open house sign?

The majority of home buyers in 2012 found their home on the internet, and through a real estate professional. Interestingly, buyer's typlically look for 12 weeks total, and 3 weeks before contacting an agent. 89% of buyer's purchased their home through a real estate agent or broker. Home buyers chose to work with a real estate agent to help them find the right home, and benefited from help understanding the process. And placed a high importance on honesty and integrity. 

How Buyers Find their Home:

  1. Internet, 42%
  2. Real Estate Professional, 34%
  3. Yard Sign/Open House Sign, 10%
  4. Friend/Relative or Neighbor, 6%
  5. Home Builder, 5%
  6. Direct From Seller, 2%
  7. Print, Newspaper Ad, 1%

I'm Considering A Short Sale In CA. What Info Does My Lender Need?
Kim & Kristine Halverson, Realtors, Santa Monica Real Estate, CA (www.KimAndKristine.com, Santa Monica Real Estate :) )

I'm Considering A Short Sale In Santa Monica, CA.  What Info Does My Lender Need? 

The larger banks, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Chase, etc., want your financials.  Below is a list of required items:

* 3rd Party Authorization

* Hardship Letter

* Financial Worksheet

* Proof of Income, past 30 days

* Tax Returns, Federal all pages, 2 most recent years

* Banks statements, 2 most recent months

* Listing Agreement

* Purchase Agreement

* HUD-1

This is enough info to get the short sale initiated with the short sale lender.  They will begin the review process for the short sale.  They may ask for your income and bank statements each month until closing.  Each lender is different due to their investor guideline's for each individual loan.  

Extra, special attention should be given when writing the hardship letter.  This is a working document that is used by all parties when doing the short sale similar to a business plan.  I just can't stress how important these letters are to explain your situation.  We spend quite a bit of time in the beginning with our clients to create a solid hardship letter.  That's one of the reasons we have been so successful in getting our short sales approved!  

Considering a short sale in Santa Monica, CA or Southern CA? For a Confidential Call, 310-737-8173 ask for Kristine Halverson of Prudential.

Short Sale Question: "If I Do A Short Sale Can I Buy Again?" Santa Monica, CA
Kim & Kristine Halverson, Realtors, Santa Monica Real Estate, CA (www.KimAndKristine.com, Santa Monica Real Estate :) )

Short Sale Question:  "If I Do A Short Sale Can I Buy Again?" Santa Monica, CA

A lot of homewoners are concerend that if they do a short sale they can never buy again.  It's a valid question since most homeowners are not making their mortgage payments when doing a short sale.  They wonder if the banks will ever lend to them again. 

The answer is, "Yes!" you can buy again.  Let me share with your our experience and what our clients are doing after the short sale.  We started doing short sales in late 2007.  At that time homeowner's would have to wait 6 months before buying again.  Kind of odd, right?  Only 6 months.  We had clients that would do a short sale, and live with family for a few months while looking for another home.  However, now the wait period is 22-24 months before a bank will lend to the homeowner again.  We start working with our clients around month 20 or 21 to get prepared for the loan.  They receive competative rates and loan choices.  Their mortgage is much less than the previous one.  Even when they decide to get a 30 year fixed rate instead of an adjustable like before. 

Most homeowners don't want to do a short sale.  However, if they do the recovery time is minimal compared with not doing a short sale.  If you are in need of assitance or think you might soon.  Please give us a call and it will be confidential.  310-737-8173 Kristine,  Santa Monica, CA

Doggies In The Fence

Doggies In The Window, I mean fence.  

We finished showing properties and instead of parking in our office garage.  We parked in the neighforhood.  These cute doggies greeted us as we pulled up. Their tails were wagging and they kept moving their heads around to see us.  They were so cute and playful. It just made our afternoon.

Wordless Wednesday.
