I was very pleased with Jessica in every way. After our first meeting she started right away with selling my mom's house. I didn't have to worry about one thing. Jessica is an excellent agent. She is very personable but professional. I live out-of-state but she kept me well informed. She has a great personality. Jessica showed that she has morals and values which are valuable traits to me. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. The sale was very quick. You are very fortunate to have Jessica working for you. The process from beginning to end went very smoothly. Thanks to Jessica.

This entire process of prepping to sell and selling Mom's house was made much easier thanks to your guidance and patience - again, the "p" word. From letting me know what to expect, to determining what "fair" means, and all the other minute in between. I relied on your experience and advice. You did not once let me down. Thanks for not only being the trusted consummate professional, but for being a great family friend. Best always, Marianna Marianna Voiselle, February 6, 2018

Can Your REALTORĀ® Help With a Mortgage?

 

Professional real estate agents have numerous contacts within their own industry as well as related ones who can assist you in your buying journey. Probably one of the most obvious connections they have is to various mortgage lenders. While your agent may recommend a couple of contacts with lenders, your mortgage decision is, for the most part, independent of the real estate agent that represents you.

Here are a few ways a REALTOR® might help you with a mortgage:

 

The In-House Lender

Some real estate offices have a lender representative who resides at their location to assist in serving their clients. This person is not employed by the real estate office and is there primarily for convenience. The in-house lender can assist from answering general inquiries to initiating a mortgage application.

In regards to compensation for this relationship: state laws and professional standards and ethics in both the real estate and mortgage professions prohibit any kind of financial compensation between them for providing this service.

 

The Lender Your Agent Recommends

Successful agents close a lot of business, which means they know a lot about the process of ‘closing’ on the purchase of a home. Their experience with local (or even non-local) lenders gives them insights into the quality, accuracy, and efficiency of that lender’s staff. It takes a lot of teamwork to get all the ‘paperwork’ done! Working with your agent’s recommended lender could save you a headache at closing. Agents will do their best to recommend people they know will come through with precision and efficiency in order to make the mortgage process less stressful.

 

A Lender of Your Choice

Working with your agent’s preferred lender may have some advantages to you. For one thing, a healthy relationship and good communication between your agent and your lender during the purchase process is a plus. As well, this lender works closely with agents in the office and understands the local lay of the land and market. And finally, the in-house lender may be able to offer you, the purchaser, certain incentives, based on their relationship with your REALTOR®’s office.

On the downside, there may be a feeling of an ‘easy sell’ regarding your relationship with an in-house lender. It’s good to keep in mind, though, that within the mortgage industry, loans are bought and sold on various markets. Many a homebuyer has been caught off guard when choosing a nationwide bank as their mortgage lender but ending up with a mortgage holder they didn’t expect.

Always remember that choosing a lender is your prerogative and you should feel free to shop and compare for rates and incentives that meet your needs.

 

Pre-Qualification and Pre-Approval

Circumstances may compel mortgage pre-qualification as you begin your search for a new home. An in-house lender offers easy, convenient access to this. Keep in mind though that using this service does not obligate you in any way to use that lender for your mortgage. Well-prepared buyers have already received pre-approval for a mortgage loan up to a specified amount from a lender of their choosing. Either way, it’s up to you to make the arrangements that work for you

 

As you can see, there are many factors to consider when it comes to choosing how to finance your new home. Take time to list and consider all these factors. It can’t hurt to ask an agent who they recommend, and why. You may also want to visit with several possible lenders prior to beginning your purchase journey for peace of mind.

Why NOW Is The Time To Sell Your Home

The last decade or so was a tumultuous time in the real estate market. Remember the foreclosure crisis? The bottom dropped out of the market, and many homeowners were left wondering what would happen to the important investment they’d made. The market recovery, though, has been surprisingly strong. For the last several years, economic growth has improved prospects for buyers (and sellers). With a stronger economy due to less unemployment and more tax cut incentives, 2018 is looking to be a great time for sellers.

If you’re debating on whether to sell your home, here are some good reasons that will help you as you decide.

Buyers Are Out There

Pent-up demand for homes is real. The strong recovery of the market has left many areas with low inventory. Demographics are on your side with the entry of millennials into the market, especially in places like major metropolitan areas in the South.

Interest Rates Are Low (But Sure to Rise)

Economic recovery was sparked by unprecedented action by the Federal Reserve in adjusting prime interest rates (what lending institutions pay for borrowing) down to effectively zero. Those historically low rates have risen, but mortgage rates are still quite low (hovering near 4%), making home purchase attractive to new buyers.

Prices Are Increasing

The factors of scarce inventory and lower interest rates have created demand and competition for available homes. And yes, that means higher selling prices. Like any market, though, these conditions are somewhat unpredictable and are sure to change. The old adage of ‘sell high’ applies. Now is the time to make the best of a strong seller's market.

People Have Money

Factors like full employment and a strong stock market have buyers feeling confident that the resources are available to purchase. Consumer confidence is high and people are feeling good about the future. And young families have a great tax incentive with the doubling of the standard federal tax deduction for tax year 2018.

Millennials...

The millennial generation is huge and has been hesitant (with sound reason) to enter into the home buying market. However, millennials are also coming of age, having families and looking for homes. Estimates are the millennials may account for up to 43% of home sales in 2018. An interesting prospect, indeed.

 

2018 is shaping up as a prime time for selling your home but you'll want to get to it sooner, rather than later if you want to make the best of it. Spring and summer are the best time to list and sell, so if you’re not at it already, you may be a little behind the curve. Strong demand, low interest rates, and plenty of interested buyers still mean the market is in your favor.
