One of the biggest complaints against the Home Buyer Tax Credits that we just saw Congress extend through September 30th, 2010 was that it was artificially propping up the Housing Market. Buyers were flooding the streets to purchase real estate and take advantage of the First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit (up to $8000) and the Move Up/Repeat Home Buyer Tax Credit (up to $6500). Now that the deadline to qualify, April 30th, has passed, things have slowed down. But if $8000 and $6500 tax credits stimulated so much interest, why aren’t the streets flooded with Buyers taking advantage of record low mortgage interest rates? This Video explores just how much money you spend when mortgage interest rates change by 1%, how that compares to the tax credits, and why the average buyer may be more tempted by tax credits. All information regarding mortgage interest numbers is from http://www.bankrate.com as of 7/7/2010.
Visit http://North-ScottsdaleRealEstate.com for more information Many homes in the North Scottsdale Real Estate market are underwater; meaning that the owners owe significantly more to their lender for the property than the home is actually worth on the open market. This drop in value signifies tough economic situations for many people and an drastic increase in foreclosures. Some of those foreclosures are people that cannot afford their monthly payments. Some of those foreclosures are a strategic default. Fannie Mae has taken a strong stance against individuals that strategic default on their home. This Video explains what they plan on doing to anyone that attempts to walk away from their property despite having the financial wherewithal to continue making their payments. This is another example of how it is always better to pursue a short sale or loan modification instead of giving up and going into foreclosure. What’s your opinion of strategic defaults? What’s your opinion of Fannie Mae’s hard-line stance against them? Leave a comment below and let us know!

Today was the Keller Williams RED (Renew, Energize, and Donate) Day. Keller Williams agents all across the country spent a day giving back to the community in a variety of projects. Keller Williams Arizona Realty spent the day with the Phoenix Rescue Mission at the Changing Lives Center. There were a variety of jobs our agents helped with. The building is just finishing construction so there was a lot of cleaning, weeding, and painting to do. The Precision Team spent the day assembling desks… lots and lots of beautiful desks. This video gives you a quick tour of the Changing Lives Facility but by no means does it do justice to the work that other agents put in today.
