$8000 first time home buyer tax credit extended…awaiting Obama’s signature

$8000 first time home buyer tax credit extended…awaiting Obama’s signature

The U.S. House of Representatives today voted 403 to 12 to extend and expand the home buyer tax credit.  The bill passed the U.S. Senate late yesterday and now will go to President Obama for his signature, where it is expected to be signed this week.

The tax credit will be extended through April 30, 2010, with a 60-day extension if a binding contract is in place prior to the deadline.  First-time home buyers will continue to receive a tax credit of up to $8,000, while existing homeowners will receive a credit of up to $6,500.  Existing homeowners will be eligible for the $6,500 if they have lived in their current residences for at least five years.  The bill also will increase the qualifying income limits from $75,000 for single tax filers and $150,000 for joint filers to $125,000 and $225,000, respectively.  The purchase price of the home is capped at $800,000.

Under additional provisions in the bill, taxpayers can claim the credit on purchases completed in 2010 on their 2009 income tax returns. The bill maintains the provision that home buyers do not have to repay the credit, provided the home remains their primary residence for 36 months after purchase, and waives this requirement for active duty military personnel who move due to a military order.

Nationwide, more than 1.4 million first-time home buyers were given the opportunity to become homeowners as a result of the Federal Tax Credit for First-time Home Buyers.  According to C.A.R. (California Association of Realtors) research, nearly 40 percent of first-time home buyers surveyed said they would not have purchased a home without the federal tax credit, and approximately 70 percent said the tax credit was “the most important” or a “very important” factor in their decision to buy a home.

Interest Rates are Below 5% for a 30 Year Fixed Rate Mortgage

Interest Rates are Below 5% for a 30 Year Fixed Rate Mortgage

My clients just locked in a 4.85% interest rate loan on a new home purchase in San Marino.  Not only is this home loan under 5%, but it has NO points.  A point is what a bank charges to reduce your interest rate.  1 point is 1% of the home mortgage amount.  1/2 a point is 1/2 a percent and so on.

According to Freddie Mac, 30-year-fixed-rate mortgage average fell further to 4.87 percent with an average 0.7 point for the week ending Oct. 8 from 4.94 percent last week. “Such low rates are spurring mortgage demand,” said Frank Nothaft, Freddie Mac vice president and chief economist, in a statement.

“Interest rates for 30-year fixed-rate loans were the lowest since mid-May; 15-year FRMs were at a record low since data were first collected in 1991 and 5-year ARMs also hit an all-time record starting in 2005. Compared to a year ago, consumers could shave almost $134 off their monthly mortgage payments on a 30-year fixed-rate loan for $200,000 by refinancing.

In addition to spurring mortgage demand, applications were up to a 19-week high over the week ending in Oct. 2, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association – applications to purchase a home were at the strongest pace since the beginning of 2009.

Is the Housing Market Stabilizing?

Is the Housing Market Stabilizing?

The last couple of posts focused on the general California real estate statistics.  I thought that it would be fun to follow up with some articles from around the state talking about national real estate activity and the housing market.  Please keep in mind that real estate is very local.  The state of real estate in Pacific Palisades, for example, is very different from the health of Pasadena California’s real estate market.

To see the current, local real estate trends, take a look at September’s real estate report for Pasadena California here.   Otherwise, enjoy the following articles.

San Francisco Chronicle

Signs of hope housing market may be stabilizing

Sales of existing homes increased a larger-than-expected 7.2 percent in July compared with the previous month, according to the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®.

The Wall Street Journal

The foreclosure pain may drag on for years…

Delays in dealing with home foreclosures are stretching out the pain for the U.S. housing market.  That has stirred lots of debate over whether it is better for the nation to face the pain of millions of foreclosures immediately—to get it over with fast—or to draw the process out over several years in hopes that the economy and housing demand will recover.

San Francisco Chronicle

First-time home buyer tax credit set to expire

The $8,000 federal tax credit for first-time home buyers is soon to expire, causing anxious house hunters to hustle and prompting a debate in Congress over extending a program that some say is central to the fragile real estate recovery.

Too many palatial homes, too few princely buyers

As more sellers decide to cut their losses and move on—or are compelled to do so by their lenders—the most expensive homes could slip from their perch at the top rung of the market.

Lake@Walnut

I have written several posts about Lake@Walnut and still strongly believe that it’s one of the best priced, best built new construction condo complex in downtown Los Angeles.  The selection of units is quickly dwindling since condo buyers are realizing what a great deal this condo development is.  When I was there yesterday, October 1st, Lake@Walnut had only 4 2-bedroom, 1-level condos available.  They still have a nice choice of bi-level 2 bedrooms with fantastic views and some fairly large 1 bedrooms available.

Lake@Walnut built by Pacific Standard Homes bills itself as the Hip Urban Oasis since it’s truly in the heart of Pasadena.  This development is right next to the Playhouse District,  about a 1/2 mile away from the South Lake Avenue District.  They are next to the Gold Line Metro Station, Ralph’s is right across the street, Pasadena’s Central Park and Old Town are a bit to the West and Paseo Colorado is pretty walkable.

Social Networking and Real Estate

Social Networking and Real Estate

social networking and real estate

There has been a lot of talk about social networking in the media recently.  When I was talking to my friends and family about Twitter last year, I’d get the weirdest looks.  Twitter, what’s that?  Now… it seems like every time you turn on the news, there’s a rolling banner of tweets on the side.  What’s the fascination?

Facebook is one of the social networks initially focused on reconnecting with friends, school mates and family, and just generally staying in touch and updating your sphere about your personal activities.  Now, facebook is geared more towards business professionals where fan pages are created with personal URLs (web addresses) that allow real estate and other professionals to promote their home listings or business ideas.

Users do this by creating postings, uploading photos and sharing links and videos. With over 200 million members worldwide, Facebook truly is a global market. And it’s not just people who have profiles and networks. Places, products, companies, services, stores, restaurants, etc., also have profiles and networks. For example, Starbucks Coffee Company has a profile and a network with 3,385,090 fans; Lamborghini has 807,270 fans.

LinkedIn is an interconnected network of experienced professionals from around the world, representing 170 industries and 200 countries. You can find, be introduced to, and collaborate with professionals who you need to work with to accomplish your goals. LinkedIn also has some proprietary business tools. Polls is a market research tool that allows business professionals to collect data from your connections on LinkedIn. Results to research questions can be broken down by company size, job function, age and gender.

So what is this about Social Networking and Real Estate?  Why is numberswiki.com

it important that your real estate agent has a strong presence on these and other social network sites?  Simply said – EXPOSURE.

Selling a home is ultimately all about getting as many “eyeballs” to look at your home.  Of course, you need to prepare a home for sale, price it correctly, analyze the current real estate trends, understand your competition and more…  BUT to give it that extra, special nudge, your realtor also needs to have an established presence on these and many more social network sites.

READ MORE:

Pasadena Real Estate Guide – everything you ever wanted to know about buying or selling your Pasadena home.

This is an additional marketing avenue.  This type of marketing exposes your home to international buyers, other real estate agents that are local as well as the ones that have clients relocating to your area, and the computer literate new generation with deep pockets.

So… when it comes time to interview your Pasadena Real Estate Agent include the following question – Which social network platform do you participate in and how many followers do you have?

And, if you are on any of these following social networks, please connect with me, I’d really like to get to know you!

Foreclosure Investing as Community Revitalization

Foreclosure Investing as Community Revitalization

the art of foreclosures

A big welcome to Matt Milmeister, author of Mastering the Art of Foreclosure Investing: A Blueprint on How to Enter the Inner Circle of Foreclosure Investing.

If the rash of foreclosures hasn’t touched us directly, it’s likely that we are – as investors or potential investors – feeling the effects of this melt down. The losses sustained from bad mortgages will mean a significantly lower likelihood that those homeowners and investors who are good credit risks will be able to get loans they need. 

And that’s not all: mortgage holders are hit hard by high foreclosure rates and in some cases trusted financial institutions will disappear or require significant restructuring simply to survive the current financial crisis. We’ve all seen this first hand. Maybe it’s happened in our neighborhood to people we know, or at the very least it’s been brought into the collective consciousness by the media.

I’m not trying to scare off investors or make the idea of foreclosure investing seem even more insurmountable. Quite the opposite – in these types of dire situations, the country needs investors. Now more than ever!

Foreclosures result in lower property values for all of us, and depresses growth in our local and national economies.  Communities, state and federal governments all suffer losses as tax revenues decline, affecting the overall citizenry by reducing public services most of us have taken for granted.

When people lose their homes, many lose faith in the system they put their trust in.  They feel as if their essential social contracts are broken.  more info

We need only to look to the recent demonstrations in New York City against foreclosure auctions in the tri-state area are a good example of how the financial problems wrought by foreclosure can affect people.  Feelings run high when people lose their homes seemingly overnight.

Home ownership is a bedrock principle of the American Dream, and whenever our fellow citizens lose out in this way, we all suffer with them. As I am not trying to scare away potential investors, I’m also not trying to gloss over the pain that this type of loss costs people. But again – investors are the way out of these feelings of depression.

In fact, for many who lose their homes today through foreclosure, it will be the foreclosure investor whose investment will drive the economy forward and ironically provide them indirect or even direct benefits as rising tide raises their boats too. 

The best way to help those who have had misfortune in the current economic downturn is to get the economic engines moving again.  Investors are a necessary and critical component of that process.

Matt’s book can be purchased at Amazon by following this link.
