  By Philip A Raices - January 16, 2023 0   Unfortunately, we are again approaching our debt limit. Since 1960, Congress has acted 78 times to consider either temporarily extending or permanently increasing the debt limit or revising the meaning of the debt limit; 49 times under Republican presidents and 29 under Democratic presidents. Janet Yellen the secretary of the Treasury, sent a letter to Congress on Jan. 13 that our current U.S. debt limit was raised to $31.381 trillion on Dec. 16, 2021, and will be reached on Jan. 19, 2023, which will be 138% of GDP. In 2013 it was 100% of the GDP.The pandemic caused a liquidity crunch with the excessive (virtually created) $8 trillion infused into the market (but not printed). I have read recently that increasing the money supply doesn’t cause...

  By Philip A Raices - December 15, 2022 0   In the United States everyone is entitled to purchase a home who is gainfully employed and has adequate income, credit, and debt-to-income ratios to qualify under the Fair Housing Act. However, discrimination and ownership disparity still occurs and exists between white and black households as per an article by The National Association of Realtors back on March 3. Here is a link to the article, which explains in greater depth the housing disparity among white and minority groups: https://www.nar.realtor/blogs/economists-outlook/racial-disparities-in-homeownership-rates According to the article, Black homeownership has increased to 43.3% but is still lower than it was 10 years ago. Moreover, Hispanic and Asian households have increased their h...

 You have finally found “your place to call home” arrived at an agreed price and been accepted on your purchase of a co-op. You have submitted your offer with your pre-approval from your bank or if cash, proof of funds. Some sellers will ask to see your financials prior to going to contract to be confident that you are financially strong enough to pass the co-op board.Then the contract is made up by the seller’s attorney and sent to the buyer’s attorney for review. Once all the terms are agreed upon by the attorneys and their clients and the final contract is drafted, then the contract is signed first by the buyer and then the seller. All required agency, lead, housing anti-discrimination, and buyer disclosures should also be signed, too, by both parties.Over the last few years, I have ...

When it comes to affordability, financial profile, and lifestyle, whether an initial purchase or downsizing, everyone has different needs and wants. Some who have the finances will choose a condo or townhome for the luxury, doorman, and amenities, such as a pool, tennis, and security. However, others will choose based on the affordability that a co-op provides. Prices will obviously depend on the building and its infrastructure, financial strength, and whether one, two, or three-plus bedrooms and accompanying bathrooms suit the buyer.Co-ops can be upwards of $100,000 less, minus most of the amenities provided by a condo or townhome. Sales applications and board approval are mandatory. Whether it is a doorman or gated community for security, pool, tennis, golf, or gym, the level of extra...

There is no doubt that the increases in mortgage rates have slowed down the housing market over the last six months, but it’s not even close to what occurred in 2008. The inventory accumulation back then was 10.4 months (MLS stats) whereas currently, it is 3.2 months. So bubbles in inventories generally cause prices to go down as supply becomes greater than demand (the typical supply/demand economics) and competition among sellers becomes heightened, which leads to lower prices.Currently, we have much higher prices and interest rates so the prospect of becoming a homeowner has faded for so many. The lines at open houses are gone and offer at asking prices and above are gone. Properties are still selling, however, and although prices are moderating, they are still holding — again due to ...

All Things Real Estate By Philip A Raices - March 1, 20210 22 Who will you be hiring when selling, investing, purchasing, renting, or leasing your residential or commercial real estate, a salesperson or a consultant, or both? Hopefully, you will find a professional who is a hybrid and represents a combination of both types. Everyone who is selling needs a salesperson to seek out the most serious, motivated, qualified income and the creditworthy purchaser who will fall in love with your home, right? But at the same time has the savoir-faire and astute knowledge to be a professional consultant by asking probing questions to ascertain, narrow down and pinpoint those who are the real buyers from those who are the tire-kickers and shoppers, out for a day perusing homes for whatever reason. ...

By Philip A Raices  December 23, 2017        We had our first snowfall 2 weeks ago and it was kinda nice to see those snowflakes finally fluttering down to christen the beginning of our 2017-2018 winter. Of course, I waited til the next day to shovel, since I actually had a lazy streak that night and as you get a bit older, you can pick and choose your battles, right? Well, I decided to spend the night with my wife and enjoy! Although it wasn’t a huge snowfall, maybe three to five inches, it was almost gone by the afternoon the next day. Do you really think that the cash and mortgage qualified purchasers took a vacation? Are you kidding? Of course not, they are lining up at open houses and grabbing what they can before the end of the year. We’ll see what the Trump Tax plan will yield; ...
