Rain is good...too much rain at once is bad...but even an inch or half inch right at harvest is not good for most farmers.   All year they have prayed for rain and begged for rain...and now that we are smack dab in the middle of the Soybean harvest, rain is forecast for the next three days beginning this afternoon!Farmers have been working 18 hour days getting the soybeans out as rain and wind are not their friends right now.  I estimate about 50% of the crop is harvested in the central part of Nebraska.  Of the remaining 50%...about 3/4ths of that is ready to be harvested and the last 1/4th is still too high in moisture content.Optimal moisture content for beans is about 13%. SO why is rain bad?  You mean besides the muddy ground factor?Well...Even though the beans are drying out natur...

Real Estate is Hard. Being an agent is hard. Being paid less than what you should be is hard.No support from your Broker is Hard. Bringing in the business and then seeing the Broker reap the rewards is hard.Unless you are an agent at Mach1 Realty.  Of course many of the companies out there are good or maybe even great companies.  But if you are either at a bad company or...even at a good company...but do not really fit their profile...why are you there?We are looking for agents who are either successful or have a deep burning desire to be successful as a real estate agent.

If you’re planning to buy a home, an appraisal is an important step in the process. It’s a professional evaluation of the market value of the home you’d like to buy. In most cases, an appraisal is ordered by the lender to confirm or verify the value of the home prior to lending a buyer money for the purchase. It’s also a different step in the process from a home inspection, which assesses the condition of the home before you finalize the transaction. Here’s the breakdown of each one and why they’re both important when buying a home. Home Appraisal The National Association of Realtors (NAR) explains: “A home purchase is typically the largest investment someone will make. Protect yourself by getting your investment appraised! An appraiser will observe the property, analyze the data, and ...

In 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr. inspired a powerful movement with his famous “I Have a Dream” speech. Through his passion and determination, he sparked interest, ambition, and courage in his audience. Today, reflecting on his message encourages many of us to think about our own dreams, goals, beliefs, and aspirations. For many Americans, one of those common goals is owning a home: a piece of land, a roof over our heads, and a place where we can grow and flourish. If you’re dreaming of buying a home this year, start by connecting with a local Omaha real estate professional to understand what goes into the process. With a trusted advisor at your side, you can then begin to answer the questions below to set yourself up for homebuying success. 1. How Can I Better Understand the Process, a...

The housing market made an incredible recovery in 2020 and is now positioned for an even stronger year in 2021. Record-low mortgage interest rates are a driving factor in this continued momentum, with average rates hovering at historic all-time lows. According to the latest Realtors Confidence Index Survey from the National Association of Realtors (NAR), buyer demand across the country is incredibly strong. That’s not the case, however, on the supply side. Seller traffic is simply not keeping up. Here’s a breakdown by state:As the maps show, buyer traffic is high, but seller traffic is low. With so few homes for sale right now, record-low inventory is creating a mismatch between supply and demand. NAR also just reported that the actual number of homes currently for sale stands at 1.28 ...

According to many experts, the Omaha real estate market is expected to continue growing in 2021, and it’s largely driven by the lasting impact the pandemic is having on our lifestyles. As many of us spend extra time at home, we’re reevaluating what “home” means and what we may need in one going forward. Here are 4 reasons people are reconsidering where they live and why they’re expecting to buy a home this year.  1. Record-Low Mortgage Interest Rates In 2020, the average interest rate for a 30-year fixed mortgage hit a record low 16 times, continuing to fall further below 3%. According to Freddie Mac, the average 30-year fixed interest rate today is 2.65%. Many wonder how low these rates will go and how long they’ll last. Len Keifer, Deputy Chief Economist for Freddie Mac, advises: “If...

Homeownership has always been the first rung on the ladder leading to household wealth. As Freddie Mac recently posted: “Homeownership has cemented its role as part of the American Dream, providing families with a place that is their own and an avenue for building wealth over time. This ‘wealth’ is built, in large part, through the creation of equity…Building equity through your monthly principal payments and appreciation is a critical part of homeownership that can help you create financial stability.” Home equity is the difference between the current market value of your house and the amount you currently owe on your mortgage. To estimate your equity, subtract your mortgage balance from the market value of your home. You can find what you owe on your mortgage by looking at your last ...

It’s exciting to put a house on the market and to think about making new memories in new spaces. However, despite the anticipation of what’s to come, we can still have deep sentimental attachments to the home we’re leaving behind. Growing emotions can help or hinder a sale depending on how we manage them. When it comes to the bottom line, homeowners need to know what it takes to avoid costly mistakes when it’s time to move. Being mindful and prepared for the process can help you stay on the right track when selling your house this year. 1. Price Your Home Right When inventory is low, like it is in the current market, it’s common to think buyers will pay whatever we ask when setting a listing price. Believe it or not, that’s not always true. Don’t forget that the buyer’s bank will send ...

Around this time each year, many homeowners decide to wait until after the holidays to sell their houses. Similarly, others who already have their homes on the market remove their listings until the spring. Let’s unpack the top reasons why selling your house now, or keeping it on the market this season, is the best choice you can make. This year, buyers want to purchase homes for the holidays, and your house might be the perfect match. Here are seven great reasons not to wait to sell your house this holiday season: 1. Buyers are active now. Mortgage rates are historically low, providing motivation for those who are ready to get more for their money over the life of their home loan. 2. Purchasers who look for homes during the holidays are serious ones, and they’re ready to buy. 3. You c...

There’s no doubt 2020 has been a challenging year. A global pandemic coupled with an economic recession has caused heartache for many. However, it has also prompted more Americans to reconsider the meaning of “home.” This quest for a place better equipped to fulfill our needs, along with record-low mortgage rates, has skyrocketed the demand for home purchases. This increase in demand, on top of the severe shortage of homes for sale, has also caused more bidding wars and thus has home prices appreciating rather dramatically. Some, therefore, have become cautious about buying a home right now. The truth of the matter is, even though homes have appreciated by a whopping 6.7% over the last twelve months, the cost to buy a home has actually dropped. This is largely due to mortgage rates fal...

In 2020, buyers got a big boost in the housing market as mortgage rates dropped throughout the year. According to Freddie Mac, rates hit all-time lows 12 times this year, dipping below 3% for the first time ever while making buying a home more and more attractive as the year progressed (See graph below): When you continually hear how rates are hitting record lows, you may be wondering: Are they going to keep falling? Should I wait until they get even lower? The Challenge with Waiting The challenge with waiting is that you can easily miss this optimal window of time and then end up paying more in the long run. Last week, mortgage rates ticked up slightly. Sam Khater, Chief Economist at Freddie Mac, explains: “Mortgage rates jumped this week as a result of positive news about a COVID-19 ...

Through all the challenges of 2020, the real estate market has done very well, and purchasers are continuing to take advantage of historically low mortgage rates. Realtor Magazine just explained: “While winter may be typically a slow season in real estate, economists predict it isn’t likely to happen this year…Low inventories combined with high demand due to record-low mortgage rates is sending buyers to the market in a flurry.” However, one challenge for the housing industry heading into this winter is the dwindling number of homes available for sale. Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist for the National Association of Realtors (NAR), recently said: “There is no shortage of hopeful, potential buyers, but inventory is historically low.” In addition, Danielle Hale, Chief Economist for realtor....

Are you at risk of losing your Omaha home? While every hopeful homeowner plans to steer clear of financial disruption, avoiding foreclosure isn't always a guarantee. This is especially the case if your mortgage payments are high or your life circumstances suddenly change. If you're unable to make your mortgage payments, your lender has the right to take over the ownership of your home. Unfortunately, foreclosure is a reality for some American homeowners today. In fact, the share of housing units in the U.S. with a foreclosure filing was 0.36 percent in 2019. For these homeowners, losing their home is only the beginning of a long and difficult financial road ahead. The good news, you ask? Experiencing financial distress doesn't always have to lead to the possibility of foreclosure. In un...
