Top 10 Mistakes that Buyers Make when Purchasing a Home By: Betty Westerlund, Realtor

 Mistake #1: Buyer wants to look at homes first and then get prequalfied for a mortgage. This is a waste of everyone’s time. Why would you want to preview homes you can’t afford? Every home you see after (that you can afford) will pale in comparison. You need to speak to a loan officer in order to see how much you can borrow. Mistake #2: Buyer wants to get a deal that is too good to be true. I actually had a Buyer say to me, “I want to buy a home for $500,000 and sell it for $1 million.” What? It is not that easy, especially in our struggling market. If it sounds too good to be true; it is! Mistake #3: Buyer will not be loyal to one Realtor. Buyers – you need to form a connection with a Realtor. This person will be holding your hand through the whole process and needs to understand your needs. Find someone who relates to you and who you can relate to. You will be spending a lot of time with this person. Yes, if your Realtor starts behaving badly, let him/her go. But ideally, you need to pick one Realtor and be loyal. Mistake #4: Buyer needs to move in 30 days and keeps putting offers in on short sales. This will not work. Short sales take between 3 to 5 months. Period. There are no short cuts. Even if you bring all cash to the deal, that will not matter. Mistake #5: Buyer wants to change lenders half way through the process. Getting a loan is a lengthy process. When you get a prequal letter from a loan officer, this is just the tip of the iceberg. There is a lot of verifying and underwriting that is done. Often, the underwriting department is still processing your file until the day of settlement. If the Buyer changes lenders half way though, this will not go to settlement on time and the Buyer will be in Default. That is why it is so important to do your due diligence with regards to interest rates prior to submitting an offer. Buyers should decide which lender they will go with no later that 7 days after full ratification. Mistake #6: Buyer opts to waive the home inspection. Buyer thinks home inspections are a waste of money. You need to get a home inspection. Your home inspector will do a complete exam on the whole property; electrical, plumbing, HVAC, check the roof, etc. If the home inspection uncovers something, this could be the best $300 you’ve ever spent. Even when purchasing a new construction, you should get a home inspection. Do you think that new home builders don’t cut corners to save money? Think again! Mistake #7: Buying the most expensive home in the neighborhood. It is never good to purchase the most expensive house. The other homes in the neighborhood will decrease the value of your home. How will you know if you are buying the most expensive home on the block? Ask your Realtor to do a CMA of the neighborhood. A CMA is a comparative market analysis; this will analyze the data of the neighborhood. Mistake #8: Buyer limits his search to Open Houses. This is the largest purchase a buyer will arguably make. You need to view ALL your options. While visiting Open Houses are fun, you really need to consult a Realtor in order to gain access to a wide variety of homes currently available on the market. Mistake #9: Not knowing the total costs and not having money in reserves, i.e. rainy day fund. If you don’t have money in reserves, you should probably not be buying a phone. What if the water heater breaks? Or you need a new roof? You need to have money in reserves to help you pay for these items. Mistake #10: Not considering your long term needs. Yes, you need a 3 bedroom home now, but what if your family unexpectedly grows? Or maybe your in-laws will need to move in to help with the kids. Make sure you have enough room not only inside but also yard size, too. Bonus Mistake #11: Buyers needs to find “the perfect home”. The perfect home probably doesn’t even exist in the buyer’s head. If you are too picky, you will probably never find a home. While it is important to think about features you need and want in a home, it is more important to view and realize what is currently available. Unless you have ample money to build your dream home from scratch, you will be purchasing what is available at the time of your purchase.

Latest Investor Trends in the Housing Market By: Betty Westerlund, Realtor

When talking about the investor latest trends in the national housing market, it is best to consult an economist. Lately, they sound like broken records… foreclosures, short sales, distressed properties – oh my!. New construction is not even an after thought. Home builders and equity sellers cannot compete against the bargain basement pricing of distressed properties. However, chief economist Brian Wesbury, tells Steve Forbes that “we need one and a half million houses per year just to keep up with population growth and then if you throw in, you know, fires and tear-downs and just worn-out properties, we need 1.6 million or more per year. Right now, we’re down to about six and a half, seven months’ inventory whether you look at new homes or existing homes.” So what does this all mean? Of course our population is growing. And everyone needs a place to live. I think a lot of investors see it – now is a good time to snatch up investment properties. In the local Fredericksburg Virginia real estate market, I experience the bidding wars first hand. The investor market is huge right now. The majority of the inventory is disclosured and short sales. Plus, economists are murmuring about the upcoming inflation we will experience in the next 5 years. If you have cash or good tax returns and credit to finance a home, I recommend doing so. You can make up to 15% on your ROI by renting the property out. And sell it in 10 years.

Why do short sales take so long?

So you want to buy a short sale, eh? Well, the first thing you need to patience. You may ask, “Betty, my favorite Realtor, why does it take so gosh darn long?”  Well, there are many reasons but to fully understand any of them, you need to be crystal clear what is exactly going on.

To be clear, the ratified contract is between the Buyer and the Seller. Period. However, a short sale is contingent upon third party approval.  So the Seller’s Lender is not aparty to the contract, but the contract can’t come to fruition without the blessing of the Lender.  This Lender needs to “forgive” a whole lot of debt, sometimes $100,000′s of thousands.  And they don’t do that easily.  Getting the short sale approval letter can take between 2 to 3 months to obtain.

Issue #1 – The Seller is not compliant and/or does not give the necessary documents in a timely manner.
The listing needs to submit the Seller’s bank statements, tax returns, updated hardship letter and pay stubs.  Certain lending institutions may require more or less documentation.  This is required.  Immediately.  When the negotiator asks for it, there is a time limit they will wait to receive it.  When they say they need it, they need it or else they may shut the file down completely and you’d have to start all over again.  Negotiators do not work on commission; they work 9am to 5pm.  They have many, many files and probably don’t care.  This is a job for them; they are not emotionally attached to the outcome of your specific short sale. They are merely following their employer’s protocol.

Issue #2 – The Listing Agent doesn’t know what he/she is doing.
A short sale is a serious deal; the alternative is, often times, a foreclosure.  You need to know that the listing agent is an experienced and competent short sale agent.  Getting a real estate license is easy; anyone can get a license.  Short sales should not be handled by new agents.  They are complex and time consuming; if you don’t know how to properly work them, your Seller can end up in foreclosure.  That said, if you are the buyer of a short sale, make sure the listing agent knows what the heck they are doing.  You don’t know how many times I’ve run into agents who just don’t get it or don’t care or both.  From the buyer’s perspective, an incompetent listing agent is a waste of time.   Ask your agent if they think the Listing Agent knows what they are doing.  Find out the track record of the listing agent.

Issue #3 – The price on this short sale is too good to be true.
Some listing agents list short sales way below current market value to generate a fury.  They will have so many offers that it generates a bidding war to benefit the Seller.  Other times, agents will list short sales way below current market value to get a quick offer because the Seller has an approaching foreclosure.  This should send up a red flag.  This short sale seems like a great deal but will never work out.  The Seller’s lender will order a BPO (Broker’s Price Opinion) and an appraisal.  The bank wants fair market value and are not in the business of losing or giving away money. The bank will counter back at a higher price.  Buyers – don’t waste your time! If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

Issue#4 – The Sellers are getting divorced.
He is pissed at her.  She is pissed at him.  They don’t want to talk to each other.  The listing agent is in the middle and they don’t want to cooperate with a short sale work out!!!  What about you – the Buyer?  They don’t care about the Buyer.  In fact, the Buyer is “stealing” the home from them.  The Sellers probably purchased at the height of the market.  The price that you are buying for in 2011 is now a price they can actually afford.  But they are in debt now from buying at an inflated price.  Please find out what the reason for the Seller’s short sale.  What is the Seller’s hardship?  Their hardship is private information, but some agents will tell if prompted.  If it is a divorce hardship, buyer’s don’t necessarily need to run the other direction.  Just be wary of a divorce situation; there are certainly amicable divorces, but be advised that a divorce situation can take longer than usual.

Issue#5 – There is a second mortgage. And a third mortgage. And a Home Equity Line of Credit. And Tax Liens. And Mechanics Liens.
The more players involved, the more complex the short sale becomes.  The second mortgage holder will not agree to the short sale unless they receive some consideration.  If all players don’t agree, you remain in a holding pattern.  Before you write an offer to purchase, find out how many mortgages there are and which bank(s) they are with.  Also, it wouldn’t hurt to do a full blown 60 year title search.  Perhaps there are tax liens attached to the property.  These liens become known when the Buyer pays their settlement agent to do the title search. And at this time, the Buyer is fully invested. Buyer has already paid for the home inspection, termite inspection, appraisal, etc.  And then will find out there are thousands still owed to various and sundry sources.  This is a wastes the Buyer’s time and money.  If this were a perfect world, the listing agent would do a title search at the time of the listing.  Know all the liens attached to the property prior to submitting an offer!  A title search is about $150.

Vital Real Estate Data for the Fredericksburg Area

 Bill Freehling of the Free-Lance Star reports that… “April was a so-so month for the Fredericksburg-area housing market, according to data released yesterday by Metropolitan Regional Information Systems Inc. The 349 homes sold last month in the region was down 15 percent from April 2010, when the market got a boost from the $8,000 tax credit for first-time home buyers. Detached-home sales accounted for all of the decline from last year. But it was the best month for total sales thus far in 2011. The median sales price for a home in the Fredericksburg region was $187,000 last month, down about 9 percent from this time last year. The price has been in the same basic range all year. The Fredericksburg region comprises the city and Caroline, King George, Spotsylvania and Stafford counties. Nearly 30 percent of the homes sold in the region last month were financed by loans backed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. That’s one of the highest percentages in the past decade and is a possible sign that BRAC-related military jobs coming to the region are having an effect on the local housing market. Foreclosures continue to play a large role in the local market. More than a quarter of the homes sold through the Multiple Listing Service last month were foreclosures. At last month’s sales clip, there was about a five-month supply of homes on the market, which is generally considered a healthy balance. On average homes spent 99 days on the market last month before selling, a nearly two-year high. Eight of the homes that sold last month in the region were for $500,000 or more.”

The first step in buying a home. By Betty Westerlund, Virginia Realtor

A lot of people think that locating the perfect home is the first step.  However, this is wrong.  If you are considering purchasing a home, the very first thing you need to do is consult a lender (unless you will be paying with all cash).  Consulting with a loan officer will allow you to see what you are prequalified to borrow.  This is generally a 5 to 10 minute conversation over the phone.  Yes, it is that easy!  Say you find your perfect dream home and then realize it is $50,000 more than your budget.  All the other homes you see will pale in comparison. 
 
As a Realtor, I see a lot of first time home buyer’s doing this.  My office has a policy that all potential purchaser’s must be prequalified with a valid lender in order to start previewing homes.  This is a liability issue for all involved.  Also, Seller’s don’t want unqualified buyers wandering around their home. 
 
Your best bet is to contact a Realtor to see which lending institution has the best rates.  Each lender will claim they have the best deals, but it is the Realtors who do business with all of them on a regular basis.  Also, Realtors can tell you which are the best loan officers. We need to have a loan officer that is on top of their game at all times.   Like any other profession, there are loan officers that are lazy, mean or simply don’t care.  I want my clients to have only best.  And I want to get them to the settlement table and into their dream home. 
 
If you need help finding a loan officer with the best rates, please do not hesitate to call me directly at 1-540-845-7247.

What is HAFA? By Betty Westerlund, Virginia Realtor

 You may have heard about HAFA on the news or in the papers; but what exactly is it? And can it benefit me?  HAFA stands for “Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives Program.”  This is a government program designed to help homeowners avoid foreclosure and offers incentives for those homeowners.

 In 2009, the Treasury Department of the U.S. government introduced the HAFA program as a viable option for homeowners struggling to make their mortgage payments.  It is over in December 2012.  Borrowers can receive a short sale pre-approved letter prior to listing and marketing property.  The bank will tell the borrower up front the least amount they will accept.  This is helpful because it may drastically reduce the amount of time it takes to get to the Settlement table.  The homeowner can get up to $3,000 in relocation money.  As with any short sale, you need to have a valid hardship letter.

 If you’d like to know more information about the HAFA program, please contact Betty Westerlund at 540-845-7247

Should I get a loan with an adjustable rate? By: Betty Westerlund, Virginia Realtor

The idea of borrowing money is not a new phenomenon.  You will pay to borrow.  Based on your credit and history of repayment, your interest rate will be calculated accordingly.  You may already have an ARM or are thinking about obtaining one.  Bu what is the specific history of adjustable rate mortgages?  When were they first used? And Why?

Adjustable rate mortgages (ARM’s as they are often called) spawned in the early 1980s when rates were as high as 18% (although unthinkable today, my parents were excited to get an interest rate of 12% in 1985) and lenders were trying to come up with affordable loan products.  Among graduated payment plans and different equity loans, the adjustable rate mortgage turned the most popular and became a common mortgage product rather than a temporary paradigm.

The adjustable rate mortgages are designed to distribute the risk between the borrower and the lender. Their interest rate is tied to an index and will adjust either up or down.  They are tied to different indexes; the most common is the LIBOR which is the “London Inter Bank Offer Rate”.  Other indexes are the one-year Treasury security and the COFI (Cost of Funds Index).  A few lenders use their own cost of funds as an index as opposed to the aformentioned indexes.  In the history of adjustable rate mortgages, many times borrowers would risk a possible increase of the interest rate in exchange for the teaser rate and flexible payment options offered by these loans.  Historically, people have loved taking ARMs because they would qualify for a larger loan amount, or could be making interest only payments on a house they didn’t want to keep for long.

Many people take hybrid adjustable rate mortgages (3/1, 5/1, 10/1) to benefit from the lower rates and flexible repayment plans for a limited time and later refinance into a fixed rate mortgage, or sell the house. Remember to negotiate the prepayment penalty of the loan, if any, with the lender – it shouldn’t be longer than the fixed period of the ARM so that borrowers could really benefit from it.

To be clear, the hybrid arm has a fixed interest rate and then floats.  For example, 3/1 = 3 year fixed period and every 1 year it adjusts after that until the loan is paid off.   The popularity of the hybrid arm has increased in recent years.  This may be a loan product that you benefit you.  In order to determine the best loan product for you, it is always a good idea to get quotes from different at least 3 loan officers/lending institutions.

It is a good idea to get a LOCAL lender.  Please do NOT use a lender that does not have a brick and mortar building.  there is always the possibility of having the lender run off with your $475 appraisal fee never to be heard from again.  Also, the local lender will know about neighborhood nuances.  For example, the neighborhood of Lake Land Or in Caroline, Virginia, this comes with a water hook up fee of $1,500.  A local lender can anticipate that whilst an out of town lender or internet lender would have no clue.  If you are buying a home in Lake Land Or, you will need to know this!

As usual, if you need any help with anything real estate related, please do not hesitate to contact me directly 540-845-7247 or email me at ATHOMEINVA@KW.COM.

Where Should I Live? By a Metro Station… of course!!!

Washington Post makes it clear: People Like to Live Near Metros

The Washington Post ran an article in February 2011 letting the world know that people like to live near Metro Stations. (I am including the article below.)   As if this is a hot news alert… the number one mantra of real estate is “location, location, location.”   This is why outlet malls are in the middle of nowhere and a loft in time square is worth several million!

One of the earliest decisions a home shopper must make is where to look.

This can be particularly challenging in a sprawling region such as the Washington area.

For many people the most important factors are price, commute and, if they have children, schools. Other considerations include the types of services and amenities nearby, as well as the style of housing.

How do you find the right neighborhood for you?

“Our budget helped us decide,” said Maureen McGregor, who bought a townhouse in the District’s H Street NE corridor in October. “My husband and I both work at nonprofits. We’re not the Rockefellers.”

  how much time they are willing to spend commuting. Then, within those limits, she looks to see what houses are available in their price ranges.

People frequently are forced to make trade-offs, and to think carefully about what they value. “Do they want a little more house and a little more commute, or a smaller house but . . . be at home by 6 o’clock every night?”

 Commuting time is a major factor, “especially if you have to get on the Mixing Bowl or 270, or heaven forbid, the Beltway.”

Because of traffic  many people place a high priority on being close to Metro. For those clients, he sits down with a map with Metro stations and discusses the options.

Access to Metro was a big factor for McGregor and her husband, whose house is a 10-minute walk from Union Station.
