Updated photos replace previously posted flier notification of the September, 2011 Homeless Vet Stand Down.  I was privileged to attend this event as a volunteer. I really did not do much but served as a runner for other volunteers needing things. In between times, I got a few photos of the scene and willing participants. It was my honor to be in place to chat with some of these vets, and with some of those who serve the veterans as well. It can amusing to be myself sometimes. Because I hang out with my camera getting some video, photos--and chat with anyone in my range; some people assume I am someone of influence. (Ha-Ha). One particularly interesting conversation I had was with an enthusiastic client who was very pleased with services at the Gulf Coast VA. He insisted that I know an...

Picky First Time Homebuyers Losing Out on Great Housing Deals?  What do you think?   Check out this article....It is apparent that different geographic areas certainly have different demographics.  In our area most first time homebuyers still meet the FHA, RD and VA loan limitations with maximum financing and are generally happy to be able to qualify given the current mortgage environment.   I do not believe first time homebuyers are not purchasing because they are  "Picky"  ; but due to the fact that financing is difficult and lender property requirements are stringent. What do you think?  Give me your feedback. New research suggests that today's first-time home buyers may be passing up great deals because they insist on flawless "move-in ready" houses requiring little or no changes. A...

USAA Movers Advantage The USAA Movers Advantage program was created by USAA to help their military customers, or was it? The program is geared to put money back into the buyers pocket, which is great for the home buyer, but USAA keeps the larger portion for themselves. The desiginated "preferred" REALTOR has agreed to their referral program  and must gives 30 to 35% of their commission to USAA for the referral. In return USAA MOVERS ADVANTAGE  gives a portion back to their USAA member who uses their preferred Realtor. USAA movers advantage usually gives their clients an incentive of about $1000 to $1500 dollars back, if they use one of the USAA movers advantage" preferred" REALTORS®.  They do this because they are making money from the deal, not to help their client. The "perfered" REAL...

A:  Using appreciation as a measure, condominiums in some areas have been as profitable an investment as single family homes in the last five years. And in some markets, condos appreciated even more, according to some experts. While single family homes have been the preferred investment by home buyers, changing demographics are helping make condos more popular, especially among single home buyers, empty nesters and first-time buyers in high-priced markets. Also, the condominium community has worked hard in the last few years to overcome image problems brought on by homeowners association and developer disputes as well as all too frequent construction-defect litigation.

A:  The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Section 203 (K) rehabilitation loan program is designed to facilitate major structural rehabilitation of houses with one to four units that are more than one year old. Condominiums are not eligible. The 203(K) loan is usually done as a combination loan to purchase a fixer-upper property "as is" and rehabilitate it, or to refinance a temporary loan to buy the property and do the rehabilitation. It can also be done as a rehabilitation-only loan. Plans and specifications for the proposed work must be submitted for architectural review and cost estimation. Mortgage proceeds are advanced periodically during the rehabilitation period to finance the construction costs. For a list of participating lenders, call HUD at (202) 708-2720. I...

Q:  How do you choose between buying and renting? A:  Home ownership offers tax benefits as well as the freedom to make decisions about your home. An advantage of renting is not worrying about maintenance and other financial obligations associated with owning property. There also are a number of economic considerations. Unlike renters, home owners who secure a fixed-rate loan can lock in their monthly housing costs and make prudent investment plans knowing these expenses will not increase substantially. Home ownership is a highly leveraged investment that can yield substantial profit on a nominal front-end investment. However, such returns depend on home-price appreciation. "For some people, owning a home is a great feeling," writes Mitchell A. Levy in his book, "Home Ownership: The Am...
