Here’s great encouragement for those of you with Bank of America or old Countywide Loans. If you are interested in a Granite Bay short sale and qualify, Granite Bay short sale specialists like myself are now getting Bank of America short sales approved in as little as 30 days – sometimes less. A recent short sale we completed included a family who had had an income reduction for sure but the true hardship was the property was now worth 50% of what they paid for the home in 2005 and like many; their expenses had increased over the years. We spent about 6 weeks, which is 2 weeks longer than normal for us, to find a qualified buyer. Part of the additional time to find the buyer was that this was a $700,000 property. Had it been a $150,000 – $250,000 dollar home we would have had buyers in ...

What Are The Soft Costs For Building A New Home In Granite Bay, CA? There has been a flurry of pending sales for vacant land in Granite Bay, CA lately and a frequently asked question by many new homebuilders is, "What are the soft costs?" Soft costs are items that need to be paid for that aren't included in the actual cost of construction of the home. These may include (but are not limited to): Building permit Grading permit Traffic impact fees Sewer fees School fees Fire department fees House plans Soils report Grading plan Title 24 Engineering Tree mitigation fees Lot clearing If you're considering purchasing a lot to build your home, don't forget to factor the soft costs into your budget and that they typically need to be paid for before you even break ground.

What Is The Status Of The Home On Wedgewood Drive In Granite Bay, CA? I just got a call from a lady who asked me this exact question. I get many calls from people who "just want to know" the status of properties that they found on our blog when they Google the address, since I publish the addresses of new bank owned foreclosures in Roseville, Rocklin, Lincoln, Loomis and Granite Bay every week. After determining that this lady called me simply to give her information on this home on Wedgewood Drive because she lives on the same street, my first thought was to say: "I'm not Google." Really, there are many people out there who must think that real estate agents exist simply to answer questions from the general public. Maybe I should consider starting up 1-900-Ask-An-Agent and charge calle...

 Congratulations on Buying Your Home with Cash! In today’s market, we are seeing a much greater than average percentage of cash buyers.  If you pay cash for a home, can you gain the benefit of "acquisition indebtedness" on mortgage debt placed on the home subsequent to a cash purchase?  The answer is YES!     What is “Acquisition Indebtedness” and Why is it Important to a Home Buyer? A mortgage that is used to buy, build, or improve a home can qualify for the preferential “acquisition indebtedness” status.  Any mortgage that is used for any other purpose is demoted to the “home equity indebtedness” status. If you do not put a mortgage on your property within 90 days of the purchase closing date, any mortgage you put on the property in the future that is not used for specifically for hom...
