Chico Sellers


January 2013 Closings, The Sandi Bauman Team at Chico Homes Real Estate Sales

The Sandi Bauman Team Stats for January

Everybody says January is a slow month for sales. We beg to differ. See below.

Many potential sellers have been waiting for the distressed market to run it’s course, so that property values would stabilize and begin to recover. If you’re one of those homeowners, the Chico real estate market finally has good news for you!  Chico prices have improved by about 5.7% in the past 12 months. Combine that with super low interest rates and reduced inventory, and we might be looking at the exact opportunity that many homeowners have been waiting for.

One of the most important decisions a seller has to make, aside from timing, is which Realtor they should entrust to list, market, and negotiate their property.

What is important to consider when partnering with a professional? Do you need a big box, commercialized brand that feels familiar? Will a fleet of agents working for the company instill a sense of confidence? Should the Realtor have the shiniest car in the lot?  Open houses all weekend?  Is their website the deciding factor?  A snazzy name tag?

The Sandi Bauman Team at Chico Homes is a little non-traditional. Some would say that we buck the system a bit. Truth be told, we kind of like it that way, because it works for us and our clients. Because we think outside the box, our compact team packs a serious punch. With one dedicated listing broker, three committed buyer specialists, and three top notch transaction coordinators, we often out-perform the offices with agent counts of 30 or more. We’ve chosen to focus our skills, streamline our systems, and dedicated ourselves to providing a refined service. Perhaps most importantly, we truly CARE that we are doing the best possible job that we know how to do for our clients.

Ready to list?

Year to date, we’ve outperformed our competiton 3 to 1 on the listing side. It would be our pleasure and privilege to make YOUR story OUR next success story.

Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternative (HAFA)

Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternative (HAFA)

The Government’s H.A.F.A.® Program benefits borrowers who short sale their homes.

On the official Government website for H.A.F.A.®, it simply states the following:

“If the cost of home ownership has become too expensive to bear, the Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives Program ® (HAFA) allows you to transition out of your home and avoid foreclosure with $3,000 in relocation assistance and peace of mind.”

The HAFA program also says: “In many cases, [a short sale] is the dignified exit strategy where the borrower can sell their home and avoid the negative impact of foreclosure on their credit report and return to a better financial position.”

What does this mean for Chico home owners?

The exciting news for underwater homeowners, is that there is now a federally sanctioned and endorsed alternative to foreclosure.  Unlike foreclosure, with a H.A.F.A.® short sale you can be completely released from your mortgage debt after selling the property. This means you will no longer be responsible for the amount that falls “short” of the amount your lender receives for the property compared to what you still owe.  This deficiency is guaranteed to be waived by your servicer and H.A.F.A.® covers borrowers in all 50 states.

We would consider it a privilege to help you research your options and provide you with the tools and the education that you need to make informed decisions, thereby ensuring the best possible short sale outcome for you and your family in Butte, Glenn and Tehama Counties. Yes! We have extensive experience in areas surrounding Chico such as Paradise, Magalia, Durham, Oroville, Orland, Willows and Corning!
