Incentives for Buyers

When companies have excess inventory they usually market attractive incentives to allure prospective buyers to take the extra stock off of their hands. From time to time, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, HUD, and many other Banks use similar incentives to help push the inventory that has not moved off of their books. (In case you are unsure what Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac actually is, the elevator pitch version of what they do is as follows: they are government formed organizations that seek to help stabilize the real estate market and enable families across America buy a home, re-finance and avoid foreclosure.) If you want more information about these organizations you can find it at: http://www.freddiemac.com/  and http://www.fanniemae.com/.

Currently, both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are utilizing some very enticing incentives to help boost the real estate market and get excess inventory off of their books. In this week’s blog we want to go over a few notable opportunities you should know about.

Homes for a Dollar?

HUD offers a “dollar homes” initiative that is designed to help local governments foster housing opportunities for low to moderate income families and address specific community needs by offering them the opportunity to purchase qualified HUD-owned homes for $1 each. Think this sounds too good to be true? It’s not. This program encompasses single-family homes that are acquired by the Federal Housing Administration, which is a division of HUD as a result of foreclosure. Single-family properties are made available through the program whenever FHA is unable to sell the homes for six months. The program enables communities to fix up the homes and put them to good use while allowing for unbelievable price cuts. The newly occupied homes can then act as catalysts for neighborhood revitalization, attracting new residents and businesses to an area. The program is a win/win situation for all involved.

To find out if properties are available for sale in your community, call Paige Slyman today.

History of interest rates: Why Now is the Time to Buy

In an effort to boost the economy and help the struggling real estate market, mortgage rates have been slashed to an unprecedented 4% range. Seasoned real estate investors might re-call a time when rates this low were unfathomable while newer investors to the market might be taking this all-time low rate opportunity for granted.

In fact, mortgage rates had never gone below the 6% range until 2003 and as we approached the end of the last decade we experienced rates fall below 4% which was previously unthinkable in the real estate community.

Prior to the early 2000s, higher mortgage interest rates were a standard part of participating in the real estate market. Dating back to the 1970s, investors experienced rates in the 7% range and by the end of that decade rates averaged around 9%. The 1980s experienced interest rates as high as 19% during some parts of the decade. Comparing these figures to the 4% range today’s market is currently experiencing, it is hard to deny the facts, now is the perfect time to buy real estate.

The 1990s brought more stability to the real estate market and interest rates leveled out and returned to a much lower 7% to 9% throughout the decade. As we entered the middle of the first decade in the millennium the market took a dramatic shift and saw interest rates plummet to below 5%.

In closing, with mortgage rates being at an all time low, it could be very beneficial to jump on the real estate investment bandwagon and take advantage of the historically low rates while you can. As history has shown us, we have not seen the last of high interest rates and it is only a matter of time before this golden opportunity will be gone. Contact Paige Slyman today to learn more about metro Atlanta real estate and how he can guide you into your dream home or the perfect investment property.

Metro Atlanta Demand for Home Rentals Skyrocket, Leads to Increased Opportunities for Real Estate Investors

As the real estate market in Metro Atlanta finds its new identity from the aftermath of the market crash during the first decade of this century, one thing is for certain, anyone having a tough time selling their home or looking to re-build their wealth and profit in an unstable economy should consider investing in real estate for the purpose of property management. In fact, with it becoming increasingly harder for home buyers to get approved on mortgage loans, more and more metro Atlanta families are being force to rent rather than purchase. The result is an increased rental market rate, which in turn, means more money and less competition for property owners with real estate on the rental market.

In closing, as the metro Atlanta real estate market works to re-build its housing market, property management is the answer for many investors and home owners struggling to sell their home. Paige Slyman is in expert in advising his clients in the property management process as well as investing in real estate for the same reason.
