Getting your home ready to Sell!

reduced2Getting your home ready to sell can seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. However, you need to look at your home from the perspective of a potential buyer.

Here are some tips that can help you on getting your home ready for sell boosting its curb appeal:

  • Add color to you landscape by either replacing flower beds or potted flowers, along with fresh sod.
  • Replace light fixtures and plumbing fixtures that will give your home a modern touch for a minimal investment.
  • Remove window treatments, unless they are current and high-end. That cuts the risk of turning off would-be buyers who don’t share your taste, and uncovered windows that will let more light into the rooms.
  • If you’re using your dining or a bedroom as an office for example, turn it back to their original use.
  • Replace dirty or worn carpet, you’re better off removing the carpet if there are hardwood floors underneath.
  • Uncluttered your house by packing away items that you will not use on an every day basis is a must. You want the new family to envision themselves living in the home.
  • A deep cleaning before you put your home on the market is a must, so everything shines.
  • Repaint all rooms in neutral colors. A fresh coat of paint also makes the house look newer and more modern.

Focus on low cost improvements! This will enhance your house’s curb appeal, and get your house ready to Sell!

Mes Nacional de la Vivienda!

La Casa Propia mas cerca que nunca!

La Casa Propia mas cerca que nunca!

La asequibilidad en la vivienda está incrementando    en todo el país debido a las bajas tasas de interés y precios de la vivienda, iniciándose en el mes de Junio   el mes Nacional de la Vivienda, esto es de acuerdo al reciente informe realizado por la Asociación Nacional de Constructores de Casas (NAHB).

En adición a los bajos precios y   tasas de interés, pago los programas ofrecidos por Fannie Mae y Freddie Mac  están también contribuyendo   a los prestatarios   que tienen bajos recursos y cuentan con muy poca cuota inicial para la compra de sus casas.

Estos programas ofrecen cuotas iniciales tan bajas como el 3 por ciento para primeros compradores.

El ser dueño de una vivienda no es solo clave para incrementar riqueza, ya que es considerada una fuente primaria de patrimonio neto pero también  un paso efectivo para acumular activos financieros personales a largo plazo.

No sólo brinda estabilidad  financiera sino también la construcción de comunidades más sólidas y logros personales y familiares.  El tiempo de comprar tu propiedad es HOY!

Mortgage Rates slightly higher

Mortgage Rates slightly higher

Finding-a-refinance-rate-for-your-homeMortgage rates are higher today, leaving September as one of only 3 months this year with noticeable upward movement.

And today was an exception to that recent trend, but it’s tempered by the fact that yesterday’s gains were the best of the month.

The only downside is that the most prevalently-quoted conforming 30yr fixed rate for top tier borrowers remains 4.25% whereas it would have likely moved to 4.125% if rate went the other direction today.

These movement considerations may be small scale compared to what lies ahead.  Several big tickets events are coming up in the second half of this week and they stand a good chance to increase the level of volatility.
