Nicole Monary of Coldwell Banker® helps you determine how to sell your Hiddenbrooke home at the right priceEstablishing a reasonable and profitable listing price for a home is perhaps the biggest challenge for every home seller. Many sellers ask themselves, "The home next door sold for a high price, can I sell mine for the same?" or "Can I raise the asking price in a hot market?" These and various other factors must be considered before determining the right cost.

HIDDENBROOKE SHORT SALES AND EDUCATION What on earth could Hiddenbrooke short sales have to do with education?  Let me illustrate.  Two years ago I had a client who declined the terms of their short sale and let the property go into foreclosure.  They were advised by an attorney that this would be the better option.  They could declare bankruptcy and everything would be fine.  Yes, surprisingly, the same attorney did their bankruptcy for $2700. Well, the husband got into a car accident which totaled the car five months after the bankruptcy was discharged and had to pay over 12% interest for a car loan.  His payments are over $600 a month on a car that cost less than $15k.  Ouch. Now comes the heartbreaker.  His oldest child applied to California State University at San Francisco.  Was a...

HIDDENBROOKE REAL ESTATE SHORT SALES Do short sales sell?  Yes they do!  There have been many improvements by the banks to process short sales a lot faster.  If you have a Wells Fargo or Wachovia loan, you may be able to get an answer within seven days.   If you are a Bank of America customer, they have a new automated system that streamlines the process.  Since May 1st, there have been seven successful short sales closed in Hiddenbrooke real estate, six new short sales listed and eight that have gone pending.  So 15 out of 21 have had or are headed towards a successful outcome.  There are a lot of reasons that you may have to do a short sale, loss of income, transfer for your job, the need to downsize.  The banks will work with you, but you need an agent experienced in the short sale p...

HIDDENBROOKE REAL ESTATE-MODIFYING MY MORTGAGE Due to recent economic events, many find that they are having difficulty keeping up with their current mortgage payments.  Given the fact that many will soon see low or no interest rate mortgages adjust up, they are knowledgeable that they will not be able to afford their mortgage payment. Enter the loan modification.  LOOK OUT!!!!  A loan modification promises under the HAMP or HAFA programs to lower your monthly payment to one that meets your current economic situation.  First ask yourself, why would my bank really want to help me?  Most would say, because they do not want me to foreclose, they get nothing.    Banks know how to protect their investments; they most likely have insurance that you are unaware of. A loan modification sounds l...

GLEN COVE REAL ESTATE-WHAT IS CONTINGENT VS. PENDING Many clients are mystified by what the difference between a property that is contingent versus one that is pending.  Hopefully, I can clear some of that confusion up for everyone.  When you as a buyer place an offer on a property and a seller accepts, you are given a certain number of days to complete your contingencies.  A contingency can be an inspection, an appraisal, loan verification, etc.  Typically in California the purchase contract allows for standard timeframes for each contingency.  Acceptance begins the day after the acceptance date.  So if you get a contact back from the seller on May7th, the clock starts ticking on your contingency period begins on May 8th.  LOAN APPLICATION, meaning within seven days after acceptance, b...

Been getting a lot of calls on this subject of late so I thought I would offer some insite on selling the 203k loan program. 1) This is a renovation loan product. What would you compare it to? Any other renovation loan product. In my opinion it is the best rehab loan product on the market. What are your options? You could purchase a property that needs work, close the loan, then go find the money to fix it up. What you would find is a "construction loan" typically charging you points and fees and an interest rate from 12-16% with a requirement that you pay it off in 9-12 months.. fun huh? So when you compare this to a permanent loan with an intrest rate of about 5.5% fixed for 30 years to purchase and get the money to renovate it is a VERY inexpensive way to get your property fixed up a...

Glen Cove Real Estate Glen Cove is an enigma to many.  Where is it?  Is it part of Benicia, part of Vallejo or its own town?  Glen Cove is actually a subdivision of Vallejo, but due to its distant location what many consider Vallejo proper, people perceive it as its own city.  Located just off of 780 in between Vallejo and Benicia, Glen Cove Real Estate offers a buyer a chance to own a hilltop home with a stunning water view.   Or perhaps a water view home within a gated community is more of what you are looking for; Glen Cove Real Estate has that too in Vista del Mar. Glen Cove Real Estate offers 21 distinct neighbors or subdivisions.  Follow this link to view them on the Glen Cove.  http://www.glencovevallejo.com/webpages/development_directory.htm  Glen Cove Real Estate also boasts a ...
