Think of Your Mortgage as a 3 Legged Stool

Think of Your Mortgage as a 3 Legged Stool So you want to pay the least interest as possible on your mortgage? I don’t blame you.

When banks announce their quarterly profit reports in the billions of dollars it’s enough to make your blood boil.

Here we are, everyday hard working honest people and we have to fight tooth and nail for every inch on rate and fees with the bank.

The question begs to be asked how does one get ahead in the mortgage game?

If you want to pay the least amount of interest to the bank then think of your mortgage as a 3 legged stool.

Focusing on one leg and neglecting the other two is cause for an uncomfortable unbalanced seat.

Three things you can do to manage your mortgage expense.
  1. Don’t over extend yourself by borrowing too much.
  2. Negotiate a reasonably low rate.
  3. Focus on reducing your amortization by applying pre-payments

In this way you’ll successfully pay down your mortgage faster and save yourself $10,000s of dollars.

Big Mistakes for Small Rooms

Big Mistakes for Small RoomsMany homeowners make big mistakes for small rooms when decorating and furnishing. Decide how you want to use the room and then follow the advice below.

Don’t play it safe, don’t paint the walls white, and whatever you do, don’t cram in too much stuff! Here are the best tips and tricks for small spaces.

1. Playing it safe
Instead, put a large-scale printed fabric or wallpaper on the walls and even the ceiling. It’s easier, safer, and less expensive to be dramatic in a small space. You might get tired of a bold print in the main living area, but it can make a smaller, less-used room an exciting space to spend time.” -Victoria Neale

2. Cramming the space with too much stuff
A large piece of furniture can actually make the space feel larger, as long as it’s selected carefully. For instance, if you have the benefit of high ceilings, a tall cabinet appropriately placed has the effect of drawing one’s eye upward and away from the small footprint of the room. Just make sure every piece counts and holds its place and lets your eye rest.” -Laura Kirar

3. Not strategizing
Decide everything that needs to happen in a room, and then work that legerdemain, baby. Divide a room geometrically into task-oriented zones-working, sleeping, relaxing, dining. Think in halves, quarters, or even on the diagonal and assign a function to each section.” -Elaine Griffin

4. Not paying enough attention to the color of flooring and walls.
Lighter walls and lighter floors do automatically give the illusion of more space.” -Mary McGee

5. Small furniture and light colors
People think that they need to use small furniture and light colors to make a small room look big, but that’s not the case at all. Dark colors and just a few pieces of large-scale furniture, with the appropriate lighting and accessories, can give a room a larger, more luxurious feel.” -Mona Hajj

6. Ignoring the space
Often, a small space is a missed opportunity. Turn it into a jewel box. For instance, I turned a small room in my apartment into a luxurious retreat. I upholstered the walls in a soft chalk-striped brown wool flannel, coffered the ceiling applying custom-designed ‘faux bois’ wall covering in the coffers, laid a plush red carpet, installed a flat-screen TV on a flexible mount, hung an oversize faux-tortoise-frame mirror to create more dimension, and, finally, designed a custom-made sectional sofa to optimize the space. Now it’s a cozy space my whole family uses.” -Philip Gorrivan

7. White Walls
Paint the room a dark charcoal gray or Ralph Lauren’s Black Truffles, one of my favorites. This will actually really open up the space.” -Paul Mathieu

8. Bigger is not always better
“Proportion and scale are vital. Custom upholstery is essential if you want to avoid burdening a room with furniture that looks like it’s on steroids. You should have furniture made in the correct width, height, and depth for the scale of a room. For smaller rooms, I try to avoid anything over 36 inches deep. Better not to overpower a room with the steroid-injected, super-deep models made to fill titanic spaces in McMansions.” -Todd Klein

A Balanced Real Estate Market in Phoenix, Although it Doesn’t Feel Like It.

A Balanced Market….although it doesn’t feel like it.

There is a slowly growing shift towards a more balanced market, though it remains favorable for buyers at the moment. Demand remains quite weak, but comparisons with last year will become much easier after July because August through December saw a strongly declining trend for demand in 2013. The fall in new listings and the tendency of sellers to take existing listings off the market means that the supply of active listings is still dropping.

Changes are taking place slowly, so we don’t expect dramatic movements on either buyer or seller side throughout the seasonally slow Summer months…. in short, things seem sluggish, and I suspect will feel that way throughout the Third Quarter.

Here are the contributing factors to todays market conditions:

  • Low participation by first time home buyers
  • The inhibiting effects of massive student loan debt
  • Millennials preference for the flexibility of renting
  • The foreclosure wave in 2008 through 2012 which has introduced a new sensitivity to the fact that home ownership can sometimes be financially hazardous
  • A large tranche of former home owners who have not yet repaired their credit enough to re-enter the market
  • Low rates of household formation, especially among 20-30 year-olds
  • A growing wealth gap causing stronger demand for high end homes but leaving large numbers of people renting for the foreseeable future

The First 2 Weeks of Marketing Your Home For Sale are Critical

The First 2 Weeks of Marketing Your Home For Sale are CriticalBrokers share their listings with other brokers in the multiple listing service (MLS) under certain rules of cooperation and compensation. One of the rules of cooperation is that each broker and agent make a new listings available to other MLS members within 24 or 48 hours of signing the listing agreement with the seller.

This is to give you, the seller, the greatest chance of selling your home during the first two weeks of marketing. This critical two-week period is your best opportunity to sell your home.

Several key events happen quickly:

  • Your home will be entered into the MLS showing system with your showing instructions, so that other agents can bring their buyers to see your home. While your listing is being prepared for marketing, your agent will contact his or her buyers and inform colleagues of the new listing.
  • Other data such as mapping, satellite image, neighborhood information, tax roll data, school information and other data will be added to your listing so that buyers can get the full picture of what it’s like to live in your home.
  • Your agent will either take photos, or schedule a videographer to help market your home with photos and video. This enables buyers to walk through your home and property virtually, so they can choose or eliminate your home when deciding which home to buy.
  • Your agent may create virtual or printed “feature” sheets that showcase your home’s features to advantage, so buyers can remember it was your home they liked best when it’s time to do side-by-side comparisons.
  • Your agent will schedule your home on the MLS tour for other agents to see, and ask for feedback. The agents who see your home in person are important, as they will be able to report your home’s features and condition to their buyers. Homes in top move-in-ready condition sell faster and for more money.
  • Your agent will distribute your listing data to his or her website or blog, accounts such as Twitter or Instagram, the broker’s website, and third-party sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, or Trulia.
  • Your agent will put a sign in your yard announcing your home is for sale.
  • Your agent may advertise your home in a number of places, including the local newspaper and homes magazines. Your agent may also put your home in their personal marketing tools such as e-magazines, newsletters, or email alerts to prospective buyers.
  • Anyone who is interested in homes in your price range and area will know your home is available for sale within the first two weeks of marketing.
  • If you don’t get many showings or offers, chances are good that your home may be facing stiff competition from other homes on the market. They are in a better location, or superior condition or they’re priced more aggressively.
  • If you don’t have showings within two weeks of listing your home, consult your agent. Perhaps you can do a little more to spruce up your home’s curb appeal, or perhaps stage the interior to better advantage.
  • Give your home a little more time before you adjust the price. You may be in a buyer’s market with many homes for sale. If so, buyers need more time to sort through the homes on the market.

You don’t want to take chances when marketing your home. Your best chance of selling your home is when it’s new to the market and exciting to buyers. Don’t lose your advantage by overpricing or under-preparing your home for market.
