7 Super Money Saver Tips For First Time Home Buyers



Save, Save, Save

The very first thing you want to be doing, when your goal is to be a first time home owner, is to be saving in as many ways as you can find. Check out 100 Tips For Saving from The Simple Dollar or some of the 75 Money Saving Tips From Dough Roller.

You could adjust your lifestyle from eating out three times a week to cooking at home, buy less prepared food, cut out the junk food, take your own coffee in a thermos cup, brown bag your lunch.  For a working couple just taking your own lunch could easily save thousands a year.  Saving more is increasingly practical advice for each of us.

Souper Savings From The Pot To The BankFirst Time Buyers Save

In honor of Thanksgiving, here’s my Mom’s Turkey Soup Recipe. Like all great cooks, she had the creative instincts to add a magical “pinch of this and that”.

Beg, borrow and save those bones. In my growing up years, everything went in the soup pot. That’s a tradition I love. Home made soup is more nutritious. You’ll feel good when you come home to an easy dinner, knowing the savings brings you one step closer to your dream home. Try making your own bread. It’s fun, cheap and incredibly easy. Takes no more than 6 or 7 ingredients and none of them requires a chemistry degree to pronounce.

First Time Home Buyers Begin At The Beginning



Where Should A First Time Home Buyer Begin?

A First Time Home Buyer Who Dares To Be Different

First Time Home Buyer BeginningA good place to begin is at the beginning.

Did you know that most first time home buyers do not begin at the beginning? They usually start in the middle by looking for a home, falling in love, then scrambling to make it work, sometimes with unnecessary disappointment or heart break. We can always find another wonderful home for you. Dare to be different and begin at the beginning by asking yourself some tough questions about your lifestyle, your finances and your motivation to be a home owner.

Should Everyone Be a Home Owner?

Should everyone be a home owner? Or, are there times when it might be best to stay on the Home Buying sidelines and rent? It’s a good beginning question to ask. Read the rest of this entry »

First Time Home Buyers Get Their Ducks In A Row



First Time Home Buyers Succeed With Planning and Preparation

Our First Time Home Buyers Series will begin at the beginning with adviceFirst Time Home Buyers Series - Get Your Ducks In A Row to help you get your real estate ducks in a row.

A Real Estate “Buyers” Market

Anytime that you have more than 6 months of inventory backing up, you have a Buyers Market. And some would say, “it’s about time!”

Happily for Buyers, gone are the “escalation” clauses for the Agreement of Sale price and the anxiety producing multiple offers-“pick me, pick me” (although I’ve heard of a few on some “hot” properties).

Sellers Love, Love, Love First Time Buyers!

Why? Because First Time Home Buyers don’t have a house to sell, which eliminates a major contingency. Read the rest of this entry »

Real Estate Open Houses And Why We Need The Puppy



Real Estate Open House and Why Do We Care About The Puppy?

I love helping people realize their family home ownership dreams. And I usually love holding Sunday Open Houses. It’s an opportunity to show off the best features of my listing, put my Real Estate Marketing Plan into action and have some dialog with the people who matter most in real estate.

I really like these people.

That’s what I was thinking as I listened to Sixty Minutes interview Sunday night with the President Elect Barack Obama and Michelle Obama.

“…America is ready for the Puppy…America is more ready than we are..” is what our President Elect said when pressed on the issue of the promised puppy. We know that it’s the right thing for the parents to plan for the best time for the puppy to join their family. And yet, I’m curious, why do we care so much about the puppy?

Malvern Market Report October 2008



Malvern Real Estate Market Report Zip Code 19355 as of October 2008*

Comparing the real estate market of October 2008 to October 2006 through the key indicators of theMalvern Zip Code 19355 Market Report in real estate values for Malvern shows that the Under Contract Price has increased 8%. This appears to be a good and positive direction indicating more realistic “For Sale Pricing” and hopefully some increased demand.

The real story in Malvern and most of our local markets, at this time, is in the volume of transactions. The overall volume of homes under contract is down 48%

Traditional Fall Slow Down In Volume
