10 reasons to buy a house when you’re young!

  1. Reason number one for buying a house is for investment. Houses are great investment you’re going to make more profit off of the house and you are going to make profit from your stock portfolio so investing in a home will bring you the most bang for your buck.

  1. That appreciation you will get from owning a house will increase your net worth very quickly. A lot of times you can make $10,000-$50,000 just in your first year alone in equity which would put you ahead of the game and would allow you to have more money down for your next house if you were upgrading to a bigger home.
  1. Your return on investment is always going to be higher when owning a home. You can spend $1400 a month on rent for example but you can be spending $1000 a month on the mortgage and part of your mortgage goes towards paying your house off when rent only goes towards rent and you never see that money again.

  1. Owning a home is like having a forced savings account. Each month to pay towards the principle of your mortgage you’re putting that money away in the bank that’s locked up that you should not be able to use and when you sell that home you can use it to purchase your new home or do something else with it but ultimately it is a type of savings account that forces you to save.

 

  1. The longer that you have the house the value grows in the longer that you pay the mortgage the principal grows in value so that helps you to build equity in the home and when you sell it or leverage it to get another loan that puts you way ahead of any renter.

 

  1. Sometimes you can take the equity out of your house and use it to buy your new home and then start using your old house as a rental which can bring you anywhere from $100-$750 a month and my estimations of profit from rental income.

  1. Running home can also let you use your creativity in order to make your home your personal space. It’s your place you can do what you want with it and let your creativity only be held back by you and no one else.

 

  1. Owning a home teach you some responsibility but also gives you lots of freedom because you can do what you want to do when you want to do and how you want to do it and not living at your parents under their authority makes a huge difference in your life and allow you to grow and become a real adult!

 

  1. The process of buying a home teachers use the concept of finance. You don’t know much about it when you leave school but you learn as an adult how financing works what kind of terms come with it and how you will become responsible with your finances in order to pay your bills and continue to gain equity.

  1. Another great reason for buying a house when you’re young is because it allows you to have free time to do the things that you want to do and how was you making money all while you’re doing it by way of the gain of equity in your home.

5 Real Estate predictions for 2017!

Image result for 2017 real estate

2017 has begun and some are wondering what is in store for the housing market this year. I have done a bit of research and found what experts are saying. Experts are making some interesting predictions!

Here are some of the key predictions for 2017:

  1. Millennials and boomers are expected to move markets

In 2017, the U.S. real estate market will be in the middle of two huge demographic waves that will continue to go for at least the next 10 years.

Millennials and baby boomers, which are the two largest American generations in history, are both approaching life stages that typically motivate people to buy a home: get married, start having children,  begin their retirement, and become empty nesters.

It’s predicted that millennials will make up 33% of buyers in 2017, but may be ower due to increasing interest rates.

  1. Millennials will look to the Midwest

While the financial picture may look cruddy for our youngest home buyers, the Midwest, with its affordable cities look good. It is believed Midwestern cities will continue to beat the national average with the estimated proportion of millennial home buyers in 2017. Leading the pack are Madison, WI; Columbus, OH; Omaha, NE; Des Moines, IA; and Minneapolis.

“It’s easier for millennials to buy in more affordable markets like in the Midwest,” a source says. “We’re also seeing large numbers of millennials buying in Midwestern markets with or near big universities. So part of this is an effect of recent graduates with good jobs being able to settle down in these more affordable markets.”

  1. Price appreciation will slow down

It is estimated that nationally, home prices are forecasted to slow to 3.9% growth year over year, from an estimated 4.9% in 2016.

“Prices are still likely to go up at an above-average pace as long as supply remains so tight,” a source says. “The inventory problem is not going away.”

Of the top 100 largest metros in the country, 26 markets are expected to see price increases of 1 percentage point or more, with Greensboro, NC; Akron, OH; and Baltimore experiencing the largest gains.

  1. Fewer homes, fast-moving markets

The inventory of homes available for sale is currently down in the top 100 U.S. metropolitan markets—and the conditions limiting home supply are not expected to change in 2017. The median time it takes a home to sell, is 68 days in the top 100 metros, which is 14%, or 11 days, faster than the national average.

  1. The West will lead the way

It’s estimatedthat the metropolitan markets in the West will see a price increase of 5.8% and sales increase of 4.7%, much higher than the U.S. overall. These markets also expected to dominate the ranking of the realtor.com 2017 top housing markets (more on that tomorrow), making up five of the top 10 markets on the list: Los Angeles, Sacramento, and Riverside in CaliforniaTucson, AZ; and Portland, OR.

Don’t be a newbie: Avoid these very common mistakes when buying your first home.

Don’t be a newbie: Avoid these very common mistakes when buying your first home.

Don’t be a newbie: Avoid these very common mistakes when buying your first home.

We’ve all bought things that we’ve later regretted! At least the money wasted wasn’t a life changer. But what if you paid too much for a car and then realized you couldn’t afford it? That can amount to a significant financial impact. Now just think about the home buying process which is more complicated than all those other purchases added together.

If you’re a first time home-buyer, buying a house can be very overwhelming. With an agent by your side to guide you through the process, you’ll make it through just fine — but you might want to be aware of these first-time homebuyer mistakes. If you’re searching for homes for sale in Merritt Island Fl or any Real Estate in Brevard, making one of these mistakes could end up costing you big time.

  1. Getting too emotionally attached

You’re about to purchase the most expensive item you’ve ever bought. So this advice may be easier said than done but just try to relax and don’t get too attached! There will always be another house if you lose one.

The best advice is to find several homes you really love so that you’re not too emotionally invested in one only!

Image result for finding a home on mls

  1. Finding the home yourself

We know you’re going to browse the MLS to find homes for sale in your desired location. But don’t rely on just your brilliant research skills. Finding your own home is like “diagnosing yourself of an illness.

Let your agent vet the homes for you. As a great Real Estate Agent like Matthew Stebbins of My House realty might find you properties that aren’t yet on the market. And of the homes that already on the market, Matthew should be able to tell you what the home looks likeinside and out, where it’s situated, the price per square foot, financing terms and other valuable information that you need to know.

Image result for homeowners association

  1. Assuming that you have no rules to follow as a homeowner

One of the draws of homeownership is freedom: getting out from under someone else’s rules, whether those of your parents or your landlord. But some homes have deed restrictions that come with conditions.

Deed restrictions vary, depending on the community you’re buying in. Their purpose is typically to ensure the property holds its value, which is a good thing. But if you have plans that don’t work with the community rules you won’t be a happy camper.

Obtain copies of the restrictions, read them, and look at the health of the condo or homeowners’ association. Look to see whether reserves are kept, the neighbors are paying their assessments, if there are pet restrictions, and whether you can run a business from the home. Rules are followed closely and you could receive fines for not following the rules.

     4. Not saving enough money

If you saved up enough money to put down, pat yourself on the back…..you earned it! That’s a huge accomplishment! Unfortunately, it’s not the only cost of buying. “Transitioning from a renter or your parents’ home to your own home has incidental costs that usually get overlooked,” says Ayesha Thomas, associate broker with The Thomas Agency of Georgia.

Thomas suggests that buyers should have two to three months’ worth of mortgage payments in reserves. You would also be paying closing costs (between 2% and 5% of the home’s price) and property taxes. After moving day, you’ll also need to buy needed household items that you’ve never had to worry about before, such as appliances, tools, and paper towels supplies etc.

It’s recommended having three to six months of expenses saved up in an emergency fund. It is not money to buy new furniture or remodel a room but It has to be for the unexpected expenses, such as a leaky shower, new roof, new a/c, etc.

Image result for loan pre approval

     5. Not getting preapproved for a loan

You’ve run the numbers several times now and pretty much know what you can afford. That’s awesome!. But if you want your offer to be taken seriously by the seller, get proof of income and assets in the form of a buyer’s preapproval letter from a lender.

This process will take a few days. Getting preapproved shows that the lender has looked through your financial situation and is comfortable with the idea of lending you a certain amount of money

 

      6. Paying private mortgage insurance (PMI)

If you happen not to put down at least 20%, you will have to pay PMI! Many first-time buyers pay this. If you do, make sure you notify your lender when you pay down your mortgage and owe just 80% of the home’s value. You will have to contact your lender to cancel your PMI when you owe 79.9%.  You definitely don’t want to pay a month more of PMI than you have to!

      7. Not checking the price of homeowners’ insurance

Buying a beach house is a dream come true for pretty much everybody! So, even though you may not buy that dream beach house but you bought that home on a canal, make sure you can afford to insure that home by the water because it could be very expensive! Being on the water, wind insurance can be expensive, and there’s a much higher risk of flood! Other factors may increase your insurance, such as if your new home has a pool, dogs on the property and more.

Image result for credit score

8. Not keeping track your credit score

Here’s an unbelievable trivia fact: About 42 million credit reports contain errors! There is a chance the error might be just a misspelling of your street name, which wouldn’t affect you. But some errors could hurt your score horribly, such as reporting that you have late payments when you do not.

Check your credit at least three months prior to house hunting! If there’s an error, ask the credit bureau to please fix it. The interest rate you will get greatly depends on it.

Image result for home inspection

9. Not getting a home inspection

All homes need to be inspected, even brand-new ones. But some homebuyers skip this step because they get emotionally attached to the home and want it no matter what. If the home does have issues, you’ll want the seller to fix them or to lower the price. Someone has to pay for the issues to be fixed. That is not something that can wait.

If you’re first-time homebuyers, you might be a bit shy about asking the seller to fix that stuck window or leaky faucet. Most times when buyers who ask for more often get it! So don’t be afraid to speak up and get issues fixed before you sign the closing papers.
