What To Consider When Making A Price Adjustment by Stephanie Gossett of Allen Tate REALTORS Does the following scenario sound familiar? You’ve had several showings on your home and no one has commented directly on price. You’re hearing: “Need another bedroom.” “Need bigger backyard.” “Want a little more space.” What do these comments mean? It may be that potential buyers are seeing other homes in the same price range but with additional features (another bedroom, a bigger backyard or more square footage). If these are the kinds of comments you are hearing, talk to your Realtor. It may be that you need to adjust the price of your home. A price adjustment will allow you to reach those buyers who are looking at properties that have the same or close to the same attributes as yours and eith...

  Prequalification vs. Preapproval: Which Is Best For You? By Chris Cope Starting your home search can be extremely exciting  – and nerve-wracking. You are about to embark on a great adventure. It can be easy to get caught up in all the excitement and lose track of the many different moving parts you need to keep in place. One of the most important moving parts is your mortgage financing. As you start your search you may hear phrases like “Make sure you are pre-qualified!” or “Get pre-approved!” What do these mean, which one is best for you and how will they impact your search? Let’s start with prequalification, which is traditionally a review of your credit report and credit score. This process may also include the completion of a loan application that your loan officer or mortgage con...

Financing your fixer upper By Don O’Dell (Senior Mortgage Consultant) Whether it’s a foreclosure, a short-sell or a home neglected by a cash-strapped owner, homes that need work are often a smart buy. But how do you finance the fix-up on your fixer-upper? Consider an FHA 203(k) Loan. This renovation/rehab loan program combines a traditional home mortgage with a home repair loan, giving you the flexibility to buy a property that needs repair and fold the cost of those repairs into a single mortgage. With a Streamline 203(k) loan, you can borrow up to $35,000 for improvements such as repair/replacement of roofs, flooring, siding and windows; electrical, plumbing, painting, weatherization, basement finishing and appliances. You can even use the money to improve energy efficiency or to make...

  How does my house stack up? By Pat Riley of Allen Tate REALTORS Knowledge is king for sure. Park of knowing your market is to know where it begins and ends. Who are you competing with and who is your direct competition? There are many factors that determine the actual geography. It is a school zone, crime stats, or a highway corridor that folks won’t cross? Is it a school feeder pattern? Sometimes folks, in addition to price, want to limit the search to new or resale. Many times, amenity packages and HOA fees make a difference, along with the lot size and age of the property. How do you get to know your marketplace? For starters, you should find a Realtor to help you as he or she will know the ins and outs of the marketplace. But even a Realtor can’t read your mind so be sure to check...

  Happy Fourth of July From the Kirkwood Parade in Greensboro, NC Every year on the fourth of July the Kirkwood neighborhood here in Greensboro, NC.  It is a fun time to be had by all.  Made up of the families and friends that live in the wonderful little bedroom community that is Kirkwood this parade embodies to me all that America is.  While I live just a couple streets over in Irving Park one of my many past clients invited my wife and I over for a little get together and to watch the Parade from their front yard.  You see if you drive down the main streets of Kirkwood one common theme you may notice are the adirondack chairs in just about every yard.  It is common in the many warm months we have here in Greensboro, North Carolina to see families out in the front yard conversing and ...
