Chico Buyers

Happy New Chico Homeowners!

There are days that I’m reminded of how much I LOVE my job of helping people buy and sell Chico real estate.

Heartfelt congrats go out to Shaun, Kristina and Julian!  Your patience and perseverance paid off!!

Happy new Chico homeowners

Some price ranges in the Chico real estate market are crazy competitive right now.  As a first time home buyer, it can be very difficult to get your offer accepted!  It seems there is always an investor with cash swooping in, or a buyer that’s willing to pay $20k over the actual market value of the house.  Yep….  that’s right.  We are seeing buyers bring in extra cash to close when a house doesn’t appraise for the sales price.

If you’re not an investor, and you don’t want to over pay for a house, how do you get your offer accepted?

1.  Make sure you are pre-approved. I don’t want to see a pre-qualification letter, I want to see a pre-approval letter from a reputable professional with a proven track record!  It’s important that the listing agent has confidence that you’re financially capable of closing, and that the lender is actually going to make it happen.  DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE the importance of this step.  My sellers sometimes ask me to make a judgement call between two very similar offers.  One of the first things I consider is the professionalism and capability of the lender, and  my past experience with them.  Putting the two lenders side by side can sometimes make what appears to be a difficult decision between offers VERY easy!

2.  Make sure you are working with a reputable Chico buyer’s agent. One of the factors the listing agent should be considering when advising their client is the reputation and skill level of the buyer’s agent.  The highest offer doesn’t always win!  If your offer is poorly written, poorly presented, your agent has a bad attitude or a reputation of not playing well with others, your high offer might hit the can and you’ll never understand why. It’s the seller’s prerogative to take the highest and/or BEST offer.  The seller wants to close the deal with the least headache possible.  The agent you choose to represent you is one of the most important decisions you will make in the process.

3.  Educate yourself on what is available in your price range. In order for you to be able to recognize a good deal when you see one, you need to know what is out there in your price range.  Sometimes it takes time.  You need to view the listings that your Realtor is sending you closely.  Take the time to drive by the ones that catch your interest.  Pay attention to the condition of the exterior.  Pay attention to the neighborhood and surrounding properties.  How close is the house to a major thoroughfare?  A grocery store?  A bar? A homeless shelter?  A school?  The neighborhood crack house?  At every opportunity, frequent open houses and tour the properties that interest you with your Realtor.   To make a rapid decision with confidence, you need to have a foundation of knowledge.

4.  You’ve carefully chosen a Realtor to represent you.  Now you need to trust them. It’s your agent’s job to know the nuances of negotiating REO, short sales, probate, auctions, and various retail transactions.  They may suggest that you offer over asking price, way below asking price, wait to present an offer, not offer at all,  or immediately drop everything to get your offer in!  Always trust your gut first.  After that, listen to your Realtor and heed the advice given.

Happy house hunting!

Ready to begin, but haven’t yet partnered with a Realtor?  The Sandi Bauman Team! at Chico Homes would consider it a pleasure and a privilege to assist you with the process.  Our dynamic team of buyer specialists will offer you highly personalized and professional service every step of the way.   Call Sandi 530-864-5407 or email [email protected] to get started!

Just another reason to hire a Real Estate Agent… the EXTRA MILE MATTERS!

 

By guest writer Tara Taylor, “Buyer and Foreclosure Specialist”

On the surface, it can seem that a real estate agent’s “job” is fairly simple:  Write the offer, negotiate the terms, collect a paycheck.  However, sometimes there is so much effort beyond the paperwork that goes unseen, and often unappreciated.   

I have spent the last week navigating an auction bidding website that had their grips on a condo that my clients really loved.  I wasn’t terribly concerned about offering on an auction property, but then I read the fine print on the site.  Realtors are known to have a case of RDR (Realtors don’t read)   …not this agent!!  I sorted through all the legal schmegal language until I found what I was looking for.  The fact is I didn’t know what I was looking for.  All I knew was that I needed to protect my first time homebuyers and their hard earned deposit!  So I found, in the small, ever so fine Q and A section the words “This offer is not contingent upon financing.”  Not a big deal, if you have CASH!  If you are financing, this is a terribly big deal.  If anything were to go wrong with the loan, i.e. the Buyer in this scenario can’t close for ANY reason, they lose their 5% deposit (required by the Auction Company.)  Lost, gone…  no protection! 

 This is a good example of why the buyers “hired” me.  I had to get to the bottom of the story with a loan on the condo!  Would it finance?  I had to be 100% sure before letting my clients wager their savings and opportunity to become homeowners.  I tracked down the property management, which was not easy to do since no company in town claimed the complex and no agent in town knew who was in charge.  With more digging and prodding, I determined the owner-occupied to tenant ratio for the condo complex was only 50/50.  According to local lenders, the requirements for lending are now 70% owner-occupied to 30% tenant occupied in most cases. 

This is not the property for them.  The loan will not go through, and they would have lost their entire deposit.  Luckily my reading and investigative persistence paid off!  My clients still have their deposit and we can look for another property.  Whew! 

Work with an agent who will go the extra mile, has lending knowledge, seeks out your answers to questions, and knows the bank foreclosure offering process.  It will be priceless to your success as a buyer and literally won’t cost you, the buyer, a penny.  But it could save you a deposit and more!

For your sake, as a buyer, PLEASE make sure you have an REO competent Realtor!!

Please. I’m begging. If you are a buyer looking to purchase a foreclosure property, do your best to ensure that you’ve hired a Realtor well-versed in REO transactions. I can not stress this enough!

I just stopped in the middle of submitting an offer on an REO property in Paradise, CA to write this. It is so frustrating to me when I see offers come in from well-qualified, strong buyers who have unfortunately chosen the wrong Realtor for the job.  The Realtor may very well be an excellent choice on a normal, retail purchase transaction. However, REO is a niche market, and not all Realtors take the time and effort to learn the nuances, and therefore effectively represent their client. I have seen Realtors make the same mistakes repeatedly, despite my efforts to provide them with the exact information they will need to ensure the success of their clients. It’s mind boggling!

I would suggest specifically asking your prospective Realtor about the number of REO transactions they have closed.  Hopefully they will answer truthfully.  Another good question would be regarding the percentage of accepted offers versus the number of offers they have written. While we are all new to REO at some point, the key is to find a Realtor that has the willingness and inherent ability to learn the necessary differences between an REO transaction and a retail transaction.

If, as a buyer, you are coming to the table with a strong desire to purchase the property, and you’ve got your cash in hand or a prequalification letter in place, you don’t want to shoot yourself in the foot by hiring the wrong Realtor!

Invest the time. Know your Realtor. Does he KNOW REO?

Chico Home Buyers Get Off The Fence and Into the Real Estate Market

by Mike Wiegert

On a national level, existing home sales increased in May as buyers are reacting to lower home prices according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR).  May figures indicate 4.99 million existing home units sold, up two percent from April’s sales of 4.89 million sold units.  This number is still a far cry from May 2007 sales at 5.93 million units. The reason for the latest increase in national  home sales was summed up by NAR President Richard F. Gaylor,  “Home buyers are starting to get off the fence and into the market, drawn by drops in home prices in many areas and armed with greater access to affordable mortgages,” he said. “Today’s buyer plans to stay in a home for 10 years, which is a good strategy for building long-term wealth.”

NAR Chief economist, Lawrence Yun, indicated last week that there is a significant inventory of homes.  “The large supply of homes on the market clearly favors buyers, and it should take several months to draw the inventory down,” he said. “Stabilization in home prices can only occur with buyers returning to the market, so we are encouraged by rising home sales, particularly in distressed markets. Foreclosures and short sales appear to be a larger part of the market, particularly in California, and are creating a drag on current home prices.”

So what do the statistics mean to homebuyers in the Butte County area? At 472 active residential listings in the Chico area market, our local inventory is significantly lower than the national average per capita.

With an urban area population of 106,000 residents, the number of available homes compared to the number of residents is substantially less than most cities across the nation. In a nutshell, although the Chico real estate market is a “buyer’s market“,  a less than generous selection of listings in our area diminishes the possibility of buyers coercing sellers into accepting cut-rate offers.

Local homeowners have indisputably seen their home prices drop over the past year.  With a median sales price of $308,750 in June 2007 compared to $272,000 in June of 2008, year over year statistics appear to indicate almost a 12 percent decrease in median home prices sold for our area. And with the subsequent losses of equities following these price drops, many sellers are not in the position to accept bargain prices on  homes that  they owe more on than these proposed offers. I can’t really count the numbers of sellers who have expressed an unwillingness to go out of pocket to sell their homes.  Instead, they are bunkering down and waiting for the market and prices to stabilize.  Is this a good or bad strategy?  You’ve heard it before, “real estate is a long term investment.” For many, it might be prudent to wait out bad times. For others that need to sell to relocate, hopefully many redeeming real estate opportunities exist in their new location.

FHA Announces Changes to Lending Guidelines Effective July 14, 2008!!

by Ken Phillips

For the first time in history, FHA will begin using borrowers credit scores to determine risk based pricing and mortgage insurance premiums.


Up until now credit scores were not really a factor used in FHA risked based pricing.
With FHA relaxing some of their strict requirements recently it was easier to qualify buyers with credit scores low enough to prevent them from qualifying for “conventional” financing. As a matter of fact, with 100% financing a thing of the past basically, FHA financing has become very popular among lenders looking for high loan-to-value loans as FHA financing, which can cover up to 97.75% of the purchase price if a buyer is paying their own closing costs on a purchase, still carries low interest rates compared to high loan-to value conventional financing. FHA is a great loan for first time Chico home buyers with little money to put down and/or with low credit scores that prevent them from qualifying for a conventional loan. On July 14, 2008 FHA will begin implementing these changes and it will affect qualifying for many of borrowers.

Here’s a look at the ten major changes to the FHA guidelines:

1. Borrowers with either no score or at least a 500 score may get an LTV >90%.
2. Borrowers with a score less than 500 get a maximum LTV of 90%.
3. Borrowers without scores will require manual underwriting. What this means is no automated underwriting is available i.e. DU, LP, or DO and will require more time to give the realtors/agents a TRUE pre-approval letter.
4. Upfront Mortgage Insurance Premiums will range from 1.25% to 2.25%, depending on score. These upfront MI premiums will still be allowed to financed into the loan.
5. The Monthly Mortgage Insurance will range from .50% to .55% depending on the borrower’s credit score.
6. The premium is based on the borrower with the lowest score.
7. If one of the borrowers has no score, then the Non-Traditional credit grade is used. Non traditional credit is having trade or credit lines added to the borrowers credit report and obtaining a credit rating. These non-traditional trade/credit lines can be utility bills such as water, cable, electric, gas, phone, etc., cellular phone service, and rental history to name a few.
8. Credit rescoring is allowed to improve a borrower’s credit score. There are fees associated with credit rescoring and each bureau charges fees for each tradeline disputed.
9. All FHA Secure refinances >95% LTV with delinquencies have a 2.25% UFMIP and .55% MMI.
10. Along with purchases, these changes will apply to cash-out, rate & term, and non-delinquent FHA Secure refinances.

Feel free to call Ken 865-769-6420 if you have any questions regarding FHA financing or any of Countrywide’s many loan programs .

Chico Buyers and Sellers: Is a Lease Option the Right Option?

 

by Mike Wiegert

“Mortgage Meltdown” or “current mortgage crisis” are terms we commonly hear these days to describe an astonishing lack of real estate financing options. 100 percent financing, stated income and loans for borrowers with marginal credit, once common two or three years ago are now a thing of the past. In fact, these frivolously used loan programs were largely responsible for the hyperinflation in real estate prices seen during the first five years of the new millennium and the now subsequent alarming rate of foreclosures and short sales. Due to a lack of “easy” financing programs, we’re starting to see some of the creative techniques of home selling once popular in similarly slow real estate markets creeping back into use. One of the most commonly used methods of acquiring real property in times of stringent financing requirements has been the Lease Option Purchase.

A lease option basically means you are leasing or renting a Chico property with an option to buy it at a future date. The future price of the property should be fixed at the time the lease-option is signed.

Usually there is an up-front payment of some amount to purchase the option. The amount can vary. Sometimes the monthly payment is larger than normal and the excess is used to purchase the option. In some cases, the option money can be applied toward the down payment for the later purchase of the home.

The problem with most lease option agreements is that although most buyers using this type of sales agreement actually do intend to purchase or execute the agreement within the stipulated period of time, they rarely end up buying the home. Buyers using the lease option agreement most often do so because they cannot qualify for a home loan. Although they expect their financial issues to change, most of the time they find that they still cannot qualify. The process of qualifying for a mortgage requires a gamut of components, ie., credit, documentable income and savings verification. A would be buyer using the lease option agreement means well, but frequently is unable to resolve adverse credit issues and subsequently is unable to complete the transaction and loses the option money consideration.

BUYER BEWARE: A buyer wishing to enter into a lease option agreement may do so with all good faith. A well written lease option agreement will include a provision whereby upon the onset of the agreement, a Preliminary Title Report is issued by a Chico Title Company disclosing all the known liens, encumbrances and legal claims that may be attached to the property. The best title report in the world isn’t going to reveal that the Seller may be in financial trouble and a foreclosure may be just around the corner. Although the lease option agreement will stipulate that the Seller is to continue to make the monthly payments and taxes and maintain the property insurance, it’s certainly conceivable that a less than honest Seller may elect to accept a buyer’s option money and discontinue paying on the property.

A few months down the road, an unsuspecting buyer may find that the home in Chico is now in foreclosure and after the title reverts to the bank or an auction buyer, they may be faced with an eviction notice.

Of course, the buyer will have legal recourse against the seller but may not have the financial means to proceed against the him. In most cases, the seller will have used the option money deposit to resolve other financial difficulties and not have the resources to remedy a judgement against him. A possible solution to this dilemma, is for the parties to agree to leave the option money in a neutral escrow, until such time that the option is either executed or the lease option agreement is terminated.

Whatever creative proposals are considered, as always, when engaging in a complicated real estate transaction, do so with a trusted real estate professional or attorney who can explain all the ramifications of the sale.
