  Which Government Backed Home Loan Is Best Suited For Purchasing My New Home? If you want a loan with a No Money Down Option then you must be a veteran or you must purchase a home in a HUD Approved Area for Rural Housing. The VA and USDA Loan are the only type loans that offer the No Down Payment Option for buying a home. The FHA loan is the most popular type loan at this time because the down payment requirement is only 3.5% compared to the Conventional Loans which require 5% down. Both require the added cost of Mortgage Insurance any time less than 20% down is used. The VA and USDA Loans do not require mortgage Insurance but have a funding fee that is financed into the loan. The USDA funding fee is currently 3.5% but expected to rise with the growing number of defaults. The VA fundin...

When everything seems tohave gone south in the real estate business, market search and realtor recommendations often go to properties that provide varied attractions and inherent realty values. In Southwest Florida, searches for these options are often focused on mixed-use property complexes like the Bobcat Trail Golf and Country Club at North Port.The Bobcat Trail real estate property development has not only masterfully merged its residential neighborhoods with the delightful environment and amenities of a golf course.  The country club has also undertaken a renovation program recently as an added value proposition that made its properties even more attractive from among North Port real estate choices.The renovated facilities in the complex include Bobcat Trail’s popular clubhouse whi...

The Sarasota County real estate market in Florida is one rich hunting ground for properties masterfully developed in harmony with Mother Nature.   The best development in the area that meets this criterion is Heron Creek Golf and Country Club, a 676-acre property development that has successfully combined a residential community with a golf course and an extravaganza of delightful amenities.   A Towne Centre, now in its final stages of completion, is also ushering in a commercial hub in the complex. The Heron Creek real estate development, easily accessible from US-41 and I-75, boasts of more than 430 acres of pristine natural preserves consisting of lakes, woodlands, and waterways.   All these serve as the framework for the establishment of an idyllic golf links and residential cluster...

I made a few remarks yesterday about some common errors North Port Short Sale Realtors are prone to make. To keep the post readable I split it in two parts. So, without further ado, here's part two! 4. Not Knowing Who The Decision Maker Is. The large majority of home loans in the US are owned or insured by quasi government agencies or corporations. Knowing whether the loan is owned by Freddie, Fannie, or insured through FHA or HUD, means knowing which short sale protocols to follow. 5. Not Understanding the Process. Despite the many differences between the servicer of the loans, the similarities between them are actually greater than the differences. What this means is that you need to know the how, where and what information to submit to the lender. A short sale negotiator with 200 fil...

Short Sales are a little different from your 'run of the mill' transaction. When you list your home for a short sale with an agent, make sure they do the following: 1. Run A Title Search Immediately. Before the short sale can be satisfactorily negotiated, the agent needs to know what liens and encumbrances are on the property. The time to find this out is prior to a contract being signed. 2. Improper Pricing. There is a fine line between pricing a home too high and too low. Too high and you won't get any offers, too low and the bank will reject the offer. The key is doing a comprehensive market analysis of properties on the market and updating it periodically. 3. Market It Like Crazy. Some agents think that they can relax a little in the marketing of a short sale. This is crazy, the com...

North Port is a relatively obscure community located in Sarasota County on the west coast of Florida. To the south is Charlotte County and the communities of Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda. To the northwest (following the ubiquitous Tamiami Trail or US 41) are the communities of Venice, Laurel, Osprey and, of course, Sarasota. North Port probably stands in the shadows of the more glamorous coastal resort communities, but it has it's own charm and allure. Where Charlotte County, to the south, lost most of it's trees during Hurricane Charley in August of 2004, North Port managed to keep it's largely wooded appearance intact. There are towering pines in the area which cover vast acres. North Port covers a very extended area of southwest Florida. It is huge when compared to many other towns...
