  Important Point to remember - Never assume that conventional mortgages are cheaper than FHA mortgages if you are putting 20% down, just because you have no mortgage insurance. I just received a referral from Katerina Gasset the other day who wants all buyers to be approved on her bank owned properties by someone that she trusts, even if that borrower is going to use their choice of lender. The borrower must have told me that she wanted the best rate 3 times. This was up most on her mind and I don't think she heard anything else that I stated. Well, I received an e-mail today from Katerina, from the realtor that has the buyers, telling us that they went with her first choice. This is someone that the borrower trusts and who is friends with on a certain level apparently. Her credit sco...

  The Mortgage Week in review is kind of like the AR week in review. We try to find some of the better mortgage related blogs, trying to bring you current updates and opinions about today's market and those changes taking place. I had to do this last minute because the previous person that volunteered had something come up last minute. And we are always looking for volunteers.   So, onto some important issues. There has been a lot of talk, talk, talk.... about lower interest rates for mortgages in the stimulus package. I feel that there needs to be a better understanding on how this works and why several of us feel that interest rates will go up anyhow. So let's start off this week with an excellent blog by Robert Ashby.     Inflation: Hidden Giant Waiting to Drive Mortgage Rates Higher...

  Before you get started, please click on : All out of Love - by : Air Supply  -  This is how so many others and myself have felt without the seller-financed downpayment assistance programs (DPA's).  Such programs sponsored by Nehemiah and AmeriDream....   As many of us know, there are tens of thousands of homes available and vacant due to the foreclosure crisis. As of October 1, 2008, the seller-financed downpayment programs were eliminated with no real answer if they would ever return. I have been in touch with a few people over at Nehemiah from time to time. Well, the fight is back on.   Well, the Nehemiah Corporation has started that fight by introducing GroundSwell2. Basically a marketing campaign to get awareness out to the public and to Congress. Bill H.R. 600, just recently intr...

Just want to drop you a quick update on our current market conditions. Gloucester Twp. for the past 90 days has seen over 200 homes go under contract or sell. That is a fantastic number. That puts over 200 families moving into or out or our community. You see things are still selling, they are just taking a bit longer than some home owners would like. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you as well.   Nick Christoper Century 21 Rauh & Johns. # 1 Century 21 Office in New Jersey for 7 consecutive years. I like where I work.

Yet another heart breaking real estate story.  This last week a 44 pound cat, yes that's not a typo waddled his way into the Camden County Animal Shelter in Blackwood, NJ. The enormous feline, who'd been wandering the streets was quickly dubbed "Princess Chunk", though it was soon determined it was a he rather than a she. Immediately people began to wonder how a cat that big could have escaped detection and made it away from the home owner.  My initial though, was that he couldn't have been abandoned too long because he certainly hadn't lost much weight and wasn't going to be catching any mice (maybe small dogs).  The former owner an older women has now come forward to say that the cat was here's and she couldn't keep Powder (real name) due to being foreclosed on.  The good news is Prin...

My specialty is marketing homes which have not sold; that I think should have sold.  For example ... while other companies and agents are marketing TO the consumer, I market FOR the consumer.  In other words, I specialize in property promotion, not personal promotion, with more "state of the art" marketing tools than any other company.If you are interviewing real estate companies, please let me know when I might have an opportunity to meet with you to discuss our incredible, upgraded marketing, which includes internet exposure on more than 1,000 websites and our World-Wide Real Estate Show.I am enclosing one of my business cards for your convenience and hope to hear from you soon.  Our goal for you is to capture every potential buyer, because more buyers mean more competition, and more ...
