Thinking of Making an Offer on a Short Sale? What You Need to Know!

Image
Are you looking to buy a Home For Sale in Colorado Springs? Are you thinking that now's a great time to find bargains on Homes for Sale in Colorado Springs? That's true, but it pays to know a little about the seller's situation before you make an offer.

If a home is being sold for below what the current seller owes on the property—and the seller does not have other funds to make up the difference at closing—the sale is considered a short sale. Many more home owners are finding themselves in this situation due to a number of factors, including job losses, aggressive borrowing against their home in the days of easy credit, and declining home values in a slower real estate market.

A short sale is different from a foreclosure, which is when the seller's lender has taken title of the home and is selling it directly. Homeowners often try to accomplish a short sale in order to avoid foreclosure. But a short sale holds many potential pitfalls for buyers. Know the risks before y…

Take the Stress Out of Homebuying

Buying a home should be fun, not stressful. As you look for your dream home, possibly at Homes for Sale in Colorado Springs, keep in mind these tips for making the process as peaceful as possible.

1. Find a real estate agent who you connect with. Call Mike MacGuire, your Colorado Springs Real Estate Expert. Home buying is not only a big financial commitment, but also an emotional one. It’s critical that the REALTOR® you chose is both highly skilled and a good fit with your personality.
2. Remember, there’s no “right” time to buy, just as there’s no perfect time to sell. If you find a home now, don’t try to second-guess interest rates or the housing market by waiting longer — you risk losing out on the home of your dreams. The housing market usually doesn’t change fast enough to make that much difference in price, and a good home won’t stay on the market long. You also want to keep in mind the First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit that has been extended.
3. Don’t ask for too many opinions. It’…

Tips for Finding the Perfect Neighborhood Your neighborhood has a big impact on your lifestyle. If you're looking to purchase a Home For Sale in Colorado Springs, a First Time Home Buyer, Relocating to Colorado Springs, or just moving up, follow these steps to find the perfect community to call home.

· Is it close to your favorite spots? Make a list of the activities — movies, health club, church, etc. — you engage in regularly and stores you visit frequently. See how far you would have to travel from each neighborhood you’re considering to engage in your most common activities.

· Check out the school district. This is especially important if you have children, but it also can affect resale value. The Department of Education in your town can probably provide information on test scores, class size, percentage of students who attend college, and special enrichment programs. If you have school-age children, visit schools in the neighborhoods you’re considering. Also, check out www.schoo…
