3 Ways Real Estate Is Like Scrabble



Scrabble and Real Estate

Scrabble rules of real estate

Perhaps you love to play Scrabble AND you have a penchant for the world of real estate like me. As a child I spent many happy Summer days playing marathon games of Monopoly with family and friends. And even today, a few running games of Scrabble on my iPhone helps keep the mental juices flowing. Now I would be the first person to acknowledge that I cringe whenever I hear someone refer to the “game of real estate”. Somehow it always makes me think of those sleazy get rich quick guys on late night TV.

We never want to think about buying or selling a home as a game, since it’s one of the most important financial and emotional events in our lives. But here are some similarities to both events that might give a little insight by way of comparison:

Expanded Home Buyers Tax Credit Voted Up By Senate and House Today

Homebuyer Tax Credit Extended to April 30 2010Just today the United States House of Representatives voted 403-12 to extend and expand the Home Buyers Tax Credit.

The National Association of Realtors has provided this helpful document summarizing the details of the new Home Buyers Tax Credit.

Following the 48-0 vote by the United States Senate yesterday, and remembering our civics lessons, the Home Buyer Tax Credit will become law effective on the date that President Obama signs the bill. Read the rest of this entry »

First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit Cliff HangerThe Senate is working on approving  The First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit Extension. Part of the proposal is to Expand The Home Buyers Credit for existing home sellers/home buyers but so far there is no Senate Vote.

Tredyffrin Third Quarter Real Estate Absorption



Mops, Sponges and The Months Supply of Inventory

AbsorptionRateMoplThe Third Quarter Tredyffrin Real Estate Absorption Rate is looking more like a normal real estate market instead of one drowning in inventory.

Some months I have felt like I needed a huge mop to soak up the excess inventory. And in some markets that’s still the image that resonates.

But here in Tredyffrin Township for the Third Quarter Real Estate Market, we’re showing signs of recovery. The months supply of inventory is down to 5.6 months.  Keep in mind that the MSI and the Absorption Rate is based on the assumption that no new inventory is coming on the market, which is never the case.

The Months Supply of Inventory and Absorption Rates are averages, so there are definitely properties selling within days and even some with more than one offer and others, especially in luxury home price ranges, that are languishing. Read the rest of this entry »

iPhone 15 Must Have Apps For Real Estate Agents



Judy Peterson’s 15 Must Have iPhone Apps For Real Estate

Judy's iPhone Real Estate AppsSo here I am now 4 months into in-tech love with my iPhone. I keep rewriting this post about how wonderful the iPhone is for Real Estate Agents. And the reason for the constant editing is that it seems that every day I find another great App that comes onto the market that’s helpful to Realtors® in the daily practice of real estate.

It’s an awesome Christmas morning feeling when I see that little update light go on telling me that there’s a new exciting feature for one of my Apps. One of life’s simple pleasures!

Now, I have some good friends that I respect. They have brand x phones or hand helds. Are you a Realtor with a brand x phone/hand held?

Give it away.  Or sell it to your friend, sister, brother or neighbor who is not in real estate and get an iPhone. Do I really mean that? I do. Read the rest of this entry »

Tredyffrin Real Estate August 2009 Report



TredyffrinAug2009MSIThere are no shortage of opinions about our current real estate market. Just about everyone has become a real estate prognosticator.

I will say that I’ve never seen anything quite like this market in my 18 years as a Realtor.  More than usual, the Buyers and Sellers appear to be marching to the beat of a different drummer. This is apparent in the disconnect between the August increase in the Median For Sale Price and the drop in the Median Sold Price and Under Contract Price.

From the 5% median For Sale price increase of $439,900 over the August 2007 Median For Sale Price of $419,500 to the 6% Median Sold price drop ($435,000) in August 2009 as compared to August 2007 Median Sold Price ($462,450), it appears that, at least here in Tredyffrin Township, Buyers and Sellers perceive the market direction very differently.

Regulation Z Revised TILA Disclosure



Regulation Z Changes TILA Disclosure RequirementsThe Truth In Lending Act of 1968 (TILA 1968), also known as Regulation Z was designed to protect consumers by requiring full disclosure of all lending fees to a potential buyer prior to purchase and settlement.

How Will Amended Regulation Z Changes Affect Buyers and Sellers?

Regulation Z has recently been amended, and will apply to loan applications filed on or after July 30, 2009. It’s a law and a fairly complex one at that. I included the full amended link here.The tiny print just reminds me to get my eyes checked.

“Say What?” is a fairly common response to the question of, “How are you preparing to respond to the new provisions of Reg Z?

Highlights of Regulation Z Changes Effective July 30, 2009:

Here are the simple bare bones highlights of the Regulation Z changes. And just for fun let’s start with the “fly in the ointment” provision in item 3 below, since not all readers will bother clicking to the second page (you know who you are ;-).
