HOT Demand for Real Estate!

Good Morning! 

COVID-19 has affected the economy in a lot of ways, but not real estate. We’re still seeing a shortage of inventory and multiple offer situations! Not to mention interest rates right now are in the low 3’s. I’ve even seen them as low as 2.8%

Be Careful About Forbearance On Your Mortgage

Rountree Realty Blog – Forbearance

During this pandemic, many people are stressed about finances and trying to find any way possible to make ends meet. Some homeowners are applying for mortgage forbearance through their banks while finding their way through this difficult time. The problem is, there is a lot of confusion and scrambling going on between banks or credit unions. Some people are saying lump-sum repayment is the only option, while others are saying that there will be a repayment plan that would run concurrently with your normal payments, or the possibility of a loan modification that would track the missed payments onto the end of your mortgage. This has created a communication lapse. If you apply for a forbearance, you need to know the terms. Every institution may be different, so make sure you fully understand what you are getting yourself into. Be careful and advocate for yourself. Check out this full article that Florida Realtors posted. As always call me if I can help in anyway!

The Truth About “Zestimates”

Good Day All, 

I came across this article that Florida Realtors posted and I thought it would be something that homeowners and even buyers may find interesting. The #1 place people go to first when looking at Real Estate is Zillow. Zillow has a feature on the their website known as “zestimate” which is suppose to provide an idea of a properties value. 

http://bit.ly/FLRealtorsZestimateFailure

I typically find that the “zestimate” provided by Zillow is not accurate to the properties actual value. According to this article the value is typically off  by 4.7% of the correct property value. Although, sometimes I’ve seen it even be a much higher amount which cost you as the seller a lot of money. 

Real Estate is LOCAL and the first place you should check with thinking of selling or purchasing a property is with a local Real Estate Expert. If there is anything I can do to help please let me know!
