According to a recent report from the National Association of Realtors, existing homes are nearing highs in sales that have not been reached since 2007. Preliminary numbers show that existing home sales last year, which totaled nearly 5 million units, were up 9.2 percent from 2011 alone. In fact, the existing home inventory is now at 1.8 million units, the lowest availability since May 2005, a peak of the housing boom.
What does this mean for you?
Well, for sellers, this means a more aggressive market for your home, possibly yielding higher sale prices and faster closings. Of course a great deal of the final sale pricing of your home comes down to utilizing a vast knowledge of proper marketing and negotiating strategies to get the best price…

Great news for primary Daytona Beach area homeowners seeking a short sale in 2013 as the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act has been extended by Congress. The extension means primary homeowners will still be excused from paying taxes on forgiven mortgage debt through 2013. The law, established in 2007, was set to expire Dec. 31. Since the MFDRA was established, countless homeowners have received tax relief from the debt forgiven at completion of a short sale. Short sales continue to derive over 20% of residential sales during recent quarters. This extension is big news for primary homeowners burdened by unmanageable mortgages. Without an extension, homeowners who completed short sales or mortgage modifications may have faced tax bills in the tens of…

I am continually troubled by the presentation of the foreclosure data. Understanding the current state of the housing industry is complex to begin with. Statistics are just numbers. They can easily be taken in and out of context in a news release very quickly. Interpreting the data can be as easy or as hard as you would like to make it. Here is my interpretation of where we are based on 2 recent "expert" comments I have seen in the headlines.
- Foreclosures Are Up
- Foreclosures Are Down
- There were more foreclosures in June 2008 than in June 2007. Up 53%
- There were less foreclosures in June 2008 than in June 2007 Down 3%
How can it be both???. Very…

So often in our world of immediate gratification, we find that we are burdened with expectations well beyond what one would consider normal. It would not be reasonable to drive your car at an ever accelerating speed without slowing down from time to time. It would be reasonable to to use the brakes, perhaps yield to another vehicle, and yes you may even make a wrong turn here or there. You may also have more than one car in your garage. The old reliable family car, a new car, a business vehicle, or even a sports car. Each would have been purchased for a specific reason at a certain time. Times change, and sometimes, we are left to make adjustments.
There are a lot of similar things that have happened in lending industry during the past few years. The…

The mortgage crisis has added additional changes for some homeowners with a home equity line of credit. YOUR HELOC MAY BE FROZEN! Check with your HELOC provider often to make sure your funds have not been frozen. Many bank customers are finding that their home equity lines of credit cannot be used after making large purchases. Customers with great credit and lots of equity in their homes have been hit with the HELOC freeze too. Bank Of America and Washington Mutual have setup a process for clients to appeal the decision of the bank. If you get a letter about your account being frozen or find out by surprise, take the following steps:
- Contact your HELOC provider immediately.
- Shop for another HELOC.

As predicted, the Fed lowering short term rates on March 18 has had an adverse effect on long term rates. Risk based pricing efforts have increased among lenders as they are going to extreme lengths to reduce the likelihood of new loans going into default. It is far more difficult to get the best rates than it was only a month ago. Mortgage insurance companies are in the process of changing their criteria as well. Buyers can expect to have a difficult time obtaining mortgage insurance on conventional loans with a credit score below 620 and most 100% loan programs will require at least a 660 score.
As the market continues to search for its bottom, there are indicators that point to a gradual recovery. Consumers are now aware that the days of no doc or…
