What is an REO Property?   REO is real estate owned, typically real estate owned by a bank or loan insurer. Property becomes REO after an unsuccessful foreclosure sale, meaning it didn't sell at the sheriff's sale, so it is now in the bank's ownership. Very few foreclosure or sheriff auctions result in a sale. Typically what is owed on the property is more than the property is worth. When ownership reverts to the bank, the bank will remove all loans, liens and debts on the property and try to resell it to the public.   You are interested in buying a bank owned (REO) property:   Hire a realtor. It's a great idea but you should know the facts. After possession by the bank and removal of all liens, the bank may make some repairs that are immediately necessary. You should know the current m...

Oh, the weather outside is frightful … oops, I still have holiday music floating around in my head. Maybe that’s because it is getting seasonably cold compared to the warm spells we had in December.  Our home heaters will be tested this week, however, with the forecast looking mighty chilly.  If you’re like me, I don’t often think of these things until the weather changes.  There are a few things you as a home owner can do to improve the performance of your heating system while other things should be left to a professional heating contractor.  Here are a few things you can do yourself: Replace or clean your air filter in a forced hot air furnace or heat pump.  This should be done about once per month during the season to prevent dust from blocking the air flow.  If the filter is dirty i...

There are a lot of things that affect real estate:  the overall economy, how people feel about their personal situations, interest rates, the willingness of banks to lend money, and housing prices to name a few. The good news is right now is the most affordable houses have been in the last decade.  Consider these facts: >  Housing prices in Montgomery County:  In January 2011, 356 homes sold for an average price of $291,870.  In November 2011 (final numbers are not out for December), 516 homes sold for an average price of $290,130.  Sales are up without a significant drop in values. >  Interest rates: January 2011, interest rates were 4.75% – 5.25%.  In December 2011, interest rates are 4.0% – 4.25%.  (Even back in the boom years, 4% was the rate for a 5-year ARM, never a 30 year fixed....

Have you been curious about the commercial development in Towamencin Township, specifically near the Pennsylvania Turnpike Lansdale Interchange? Demolition, lane changes, new road signs, and construction vehicles are at every turn in the vicinity of Sumneytown Pike and Towamencin Avenue.   It’s hard not to notice the changes going on there.  Have you often wondered what is being planned for land surrounding this intersection and Forty Foot and Bustard Roads?   I spoke with Joe Leis, Towamencin Township’s Director of Community Development earlier today to find out the plans.  In a nutshell, there’s more going on than meets the eye.  >>>>>  In Phase 1 along Towamencin Avenue, known as Town Square One, an apartment building consisting of 240 apartments is being built by Philadelphia Subur...
