postheadericon How To Get Maximum Exposure and Interest When Listing A Home For Sale In Lakewood Ranch

Creative Writing Sparks Lakewood Ranch Listings

 

Listing Language Can Trigger a Quick Sale

Lakewood Ranch Homes For Sale

Your Lakewood Ranch home is in perfect shape – all set to go on the market. You’ve enlisted an experienced real estate agent with a solid track record.

Now all that’s left is…what?

What’s that next step?

In fact, the next step can be all-important: creating a Lakewood Ranch listing that does more than just describe the number of beds and baths. It has to stand out among all the competing listings that will be seen alongside it. That Lakewood Ranch listing is the keystone of the marketing campaign that will ultimately fetch a new owner: its job is to get buyers and agents to take a closer look. To get that job done, it has to be special!Bradenton Real Estate Listings

 

 

When I sit down to work up an effective listing, I try to pay attention to what creative writers from other forms of advertising advise: first discover what is unique, appealing, attention-getting, then present it with language that captures readers’ imaginations. Formulas are out, since following a set group of mechanical rules can only produce a dull, repetitious result. Even so, there are some useful tips that can help spark an effective listing:

 

 

* Keep the context in mind. The job of any Lakewood Ranch listing is to communicate many essential details in a limited amount of space – but there will be photographic information there, too. Highlight features that can’t be told through either its photos or specifications. For example, if a house offers a spectacular view of the sunset from its veranda, the listing should highlight it. Grandeur can be told nowhere else.

 

 

lakewood ranch* Listing language should be upbeat and tailored to sell, while at the same time, filled with accurate and useful information. It’s a balancing act, and going overboard in either direction can be off-putting. Specific details help bring in readers and build believability (high quality brand names like Sub-Zero or Wolf are good examples). Details build credibility that bolsters less concrete descriptions. I leave out unsupportable claims altogether. It can be tempting to fall in love with flowery language that sails off into its own reality — but accurate information builds trust for the lead-up to a sale.

 

 

* Setting the right tone is another important factor. It’s another balancing act. Listings should be upbeat without exaggeration…accommodating without sounding desperate. The right tone can help bring in prospects, just as the wrong one will drive them off or raise suspicions that something is wrong.

 

A successful Lakewood Ranchagent has demonstrated the knowhow and experience to bring these and other elements together to produce powerful, effective home listings. If you are considering selling your own home in the Manatee County or Sarasota County areas, I hope you will give me a call so we can create a dynamic marketing plan to sell your property!

Spring Hill Florida Bank Owned

Homes: Buying Opportunity

 

“Fixers” Reward Patience, Prudence, and Realism

 

These days the words “bank owned homes” have become practically synonymous with a single word: “opportunity.” With prices and mortgage rates this low, first time home buyers, investors and seasoned property owners alike are looking at a raft of buying options unlike any Spring Hill Florida has seen in a very long time.

Hernando County Real Estate

That option of buying a bank owned home has certainly opened a viable route for those looking to own a home at the fraction of what it cost just a few years ago. But not without a price: the best Spring Hill Florida bank owned home bargains are almost certain to fall into the ‘fixer-upper’ category.

 

When considering the purchase of one of our Spring Hill Florida bank owned homes, I’ve found that my most successful clients have a few qualities in common:

patience – they wait until they’ve found a house that suits all their needs

prudence – they resist the temptation to take out too big of a loan

realism – they know how much hard work they will be willing to put into the house

 

Finding the right fixer-upper should be approached as a process: in other words, never buy the first home you see until after you’ve checked out some of its competition. There are more foreclosures on the market than ever – a phenomenon that works to your advantage. When you do find the right home, make sure to take out a loan that makes sense. Often people who are in a hurry to buy a house are tempted to take out a loan without giving enough consideration to its immediate and long-term implications. Being coolly realistic as you work out the numbers will pay off for a long time.

 

Once a bank owned home is officially yours, the hard (often fun!) work begins. Buying a home in need of repair has always been the surest way to find a deal, but it is also the way to improve or develop home maintenance skills, bond with family members, and keep a tight rein on the family budget. Here, too, you need to be careful not to get carried away– you don’t want to overbuild or overdevelop beyond what is appropriate for the neighborhood setting. In other words, keep your end goals in mind. My advice to clients varies depending on their individual needs: Is it an income property? Or the family home for the next 15 years?

 

Foreclosures show no signs of slowing down in the near future, so this May’s buying market is opportune. If you’re considering buying a bank owned home in Spring Hill Florida, call me today to go over your options and to put a plan into action!

postheadericon HARP 2.0 Refinance Is Here, Florida Home Owners Who Are Underwater Can Now Refinance

Video: New HARP Program To Help Underwater Homeowners

The latest version of the federal Home Affordable Refinance Program went into full swing this week.

 

The program, which officially began in December but wasn’t fully available until this week, now allows homeowners to refinance at today’s low interest rates if they are current on payments and hold loans on which they are more than 125% underwater.

 

The program is limited to homeowners whose loans are backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. That means no principal will be reduced, but it may be possible to get a lower interest rate and a lower payment. Homeowners who aren’t eligible for HARP may be eligible for other modification programs.

To get a HARP 2.0 refinance, homeowners must have taken out their loan before June 1, 2009. You can read all the guidelines here . The plan will be effect until the end of 2013.

You can apply for a HARP Refinance at E Loans Mortgage.

The previous version of HARP limited the refinancing to homeowners who owed less than 125% of their home’s value.

  • The enhanced HARP is one of a number of refinancing and mortgage-modification opportunities unveiled in recent months to keep more homeowners out of foreclosure and in their homes.

 

Economists believe putting more money into homeowners’ hands, through lower payments also will help the economy.

  • As Mark Zandi and Cristian Deritis wrote in an analysis for Moody’s Analytics:
The economic benefit of a restrung HARP is clear. If more mortgages are refinanced, fewer borrowers will default, homeowners will have more to spend elsewhere and the fragile recovery will receive a quick and potentially sizable cash infusion.

If you think you want a HARP refinance, you should move quickly. Mortgage rates have already started rising, so you want to lock in a low rate while you can.

The 10 News Investigators have learned the group suing Citizens Insurance over its insurance practices will file more lawsuits Monday.

We’ve learned that group — FAIR — will be filing class-action lawsuits against private insurance companies Monday.

Those suits will go along with the cases they’ve already begun against Citizens.

The 10 News Investigators have been leading the way on this. Following reports by 10 News last fall, allegations surfaced.

The claims: insurance companies statewide are setting the replacement costs of some homes extraordinarily high — much higher than they should be.

That means the companies can charge you more to insure your house. The technique lets them make more money and dodge state laws that limit how much they can raise your rates.

That practice is what led the group FAIR — Florida Association for Insurance Reform — to the steps of the state Capitol last week.

FAIR announced it’s suing Citizens Insurance over the issue. Citizens is run by the state and backed up by Florida taxpayers.

postheadericon What’s Not Covered In Florida Home Owners Insurance?

Do You Know What is NOT Covered in Your Home Owners Insurance Policy?

You Might be Surprised

 

In recent years, insurance carriers in Florida have added many exclusions to property insurance policies, with little oversight or public debate. These exclusions are drafted into policy leaving consumers with less coverage for the same (if not higher) premium.

Because many policyholders rarely read every word of their large and complex policies, they may not even be aware of what is NOT covered. Since policyholders are unable to negotiate policy language, they are left with a choice of accepting the changes, purchasing new endorsements or seeking a different carrier.

Examples of common policy exclusions include:

Eliminating Your Rights to Appraisal – For 200 years, policies have included the binding appraisal process to settle disputes between insurance companies and the insured over amount of loss or value of damaged property. Many insurers are restricting or eliminating this provision, which provides important consumer protections.

 

Giving You a Sinking Feeling – Many policies no longer cover damage from sinkholes unless the sinkholes are deemed “catastrophic,” usually meaning large and sudden. But slowly occurring sinkholes can cause catastrophic damage to a home and its value. Damage can run into the hundreds of thousands, often more than the value of the home, leaving many homeowners with no other choice than to walk away from their mortgages.

 

Requiring You to See Through Walls – Most insurance claims deal with water damage, often stemming from damage behind walls or under slabs that doesn’t become noticeable for weeks or months. Citizens and other insurance companies now deny claims for leakage occurring over more than 14 days, even if it is hidden from sight. In fact, Citizens has just announced plans to further expand its water exclusion.

 

Eliminating Coverage for Mold – Where there is water damage mold often forms. Though it is recommended that water be removed and damaged areas dried within 48-72 hours, company insurance adjusters often are unable to visit the home within that time. No matter the reason, if mold forms, most companies will no longer cover the cost of its removal.

 

Leaving Screened Structures Uncovered – Popular in Florida, screened enclosures used to be covered under most homeowner insurance policies. Many carriers have now added exclusions that remove screened structures from coverage.

 

Re-Defining “Falling Objects” – Typically, damage from falling objects in a home or condo (such as floor damage from a falling light fixture or fan) is covered. Citizens’ new condo policy, however, only covers such damage if the falling objects come down from the sky through your roof or walls. Great coverage for meteorites, but little else.

postheadericon California Files Suit Against Fannie and Freddie

SAN FRANCISCO – California’s attorney general filed lawsuits against mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac on Tuesday, demanding that the companies that own some 60 percent of the state’s mortgages respond to questions in a state investigation.

Attorney General Kamala Harris, whose office filed the lawsuits in San Francisco Superior Court, is investigating Freddie Mac’s and Fannie Mae’s involvement in 12,000 foreclosed properties in California where they served as landlords. She also wants to find out what role the companies played in selling or marketing mortgage-backed securities.

 

The essentially identical lawsuits ask the mortgage firms to respond to 51 investigative subpoenas that call on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to identify all the California homes on which they foreclosed. They also want the mortgage firms to reveal whether they have information on the decreased value of those homes due to drug dealing or prostitution, as well as explosives and weapons found on those vacant properties.

“Foreclosures not only affect the families who lose their homes, but also the safety, health and welfare of the entire community,” the lawsuit said.

Harris also called on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to disclose whether they have complied with civil rights laws protecting minorities and members of the Armed Forces against unlawful convictions and foreclosures.

The suits also seek to determine whether the companies are in compliance with California’s securities and tax laws.

The companies were taken over by the federal government and put into conservatorship under the Federal Housing Finance Agency in September 2008 to save them from collapse.

An attorney representing the Federal Housing Finance Agency said in a letter attached to the lawsuits that the 51 subpoenas were “frequently vague and ambiguous,” and said state attorneys general did not have the authority to issue subpoenas against the federal conservator.

“The burden to collect that information would be nothing short of staggering,” the letter said.

Representatives of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac said the companies would not comment on the lawsuits Tuesday.

The lawsuits could determine whether states have a right to investigate the mortgage firms while they are under federal control. Harris argues that since the mortgage companies own properties in California, they are subject to state law and demands.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac buy home loans from banks and other lenders, package them into bonds with a guarantee against default and then sell them to investors around the world. The two own or guarantee about half of U.S. mortgages, or nearly 31 million loans.

The companies have so far cost American taxpayers more than $150 billion — the largest bailout of the financial crisis. They could cost up to $259 billion, according to the FHFA.

Two former CEOs at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac last week became the highest-profile individuals to be charged in connection with the 2008 financial crisis. In a lawsuit filed in New York, the Securities and Exchange Commission brought civil fraud charges against six former executives at the two firms, including former Fannie CEO Daniel Mudd and former Freddie CEO Richard Syron.

The executives were accused of understating the level of high-risk subprime mortgages that the companies held just before the housing bubble burst.

Harris has created a task force that is pursuing criminal charges and civil judgments in mortgage fraud cases. She has said that her office would not join a planned 50-state settlement over foreclosure abuses that federal officials and other state attorneys general are negotiating with major U.S. banks.

She said the settlement gave bank officials too much immunity from civil litigation.

Harris said 768,330 residential mortgages were foreclosed on in California between January 2007 and June of this year.
