When buying or selling a home, it is common practice for a title company to be involved in the transaction. Their primary role is to ensure that the person selling the home has the right to do so. They do this by validating the transaction through extensive fact checking, after their information requirements have been met they then issue a guarantee that is backed by title insurance. This title insurance is meant to protect the lender and the owner from future unsubstantiated claims. The title company has a handful of responsibilities throughout the process. We have created a short list of tasks to give you a better understanding of what value they provide during the transaction.

 

Here’s a list of what they can do for you.

Flipping homes is more than just a business model.

Taking a property and sprucing it up has the power to revitalize a neighborhood, raise the price of homes in the area, create more curb appeal to move faster on the market, and last but not least, make your living area more homey and inviting.

Here, we take a look at 11519 Dawn Street in Eagle River.

This home was listed and sold by Matthew Lindsay at Precision Home Group in the summer 2019, then it was completely transformed and put back on the market for sale by Stacy Hague at EXP Realty.

All too often, realtors use jargon that the average person isn't familiar with. The term “CMA” is one of those terms you may have heard, but wasn’t sure what it meant. CMA stands for Comparable Market Analysis. This is how real estate agents determine the market value of your home before they get it on the market.

Real estate agents come up with these values through research of your home’s location, comparable properties and the market. Unlike most commercial properties, whose value is determined by income, residential properties take a different approach.

There is a difference between “tax assessed value” and “market value.” Tax assessed value is what you pay taxes on and, depending on where you live, can be above or below market value.…

When looking to lease or purchase a commercial property, you want to start the process by walking the property, looking at financials and making sure the property use fits your needs. The next step is to submit a letter of intent, or LOI, to start the process of negotiating terms with the property owner. Below are five things to be addressed in the LOI.


5 Things to Know About a Letter of Intent (LOI)

 

1. Purchase Price and Terms

One of the first things that the owner will want to know is what the buyer is paying for the property. This can come in a variety of different ways, but at the end of the day it needs to be specific how the price is going to be settled.

In a lease, this is typically calculated in a dollar amount per square foot and will have a set percentage escalated…

Strategic Analysis

When looking at both commercial and residential properties for the sake of an investment, one must ensure that they are getting the best deal possible. In order to do that, there needs to be a systematic way to look at a property and make sure that all aspects are accounted for. The Strategic Analysis method is the best way to make this happen. This method ensures that the potential buyer looks at four main areas of concern in the due diligence process: Financial, market and competitive, location and site, and political and legal. We will go into more depth on each one of these subcategories.

There is a lot of mystery surrounding the mortgage financing world. With many different loan types and mortgage providers, it becomes difficult to know where to start. We are going to analyze, and break down, one of the most common loan types available, the FHA loan.

 

 

Before we talk about specifics, including pros and cons of using the FHA loan, lets explain the history behind it. FHA is the acronym for the Federal Housing Authority. The FHA was formed in 1934 during the Great Depression. This was done to spur home construction, reduce unemployment and increase the availability of loans to people.
