aReal-Estate-Realities-Podcast-Logo-9-1400The old reliable canary.

Real Estate Realities

Despite a general decrease in all cash investor purchases, there are markets where all cash buyers are very active. In fact, they are competing directly with first time buyers, which has really been a challenge to those first time buyers considering the relatively low inventories we are seeing as well. We will talk about some of these areas and also check in with what we are seeing in Phoenix Рwhich was particularly hard hit by the bubble and downturn. Knowing where investors are most active can be valuable information for buyers, sellers and aspiring investors and real estate entrepreneurs.

Plus, mortgage fraud is most often committed against some of our most vulnerable family members. Today we will cover some of the ways to protect yourself but also consider how we can step up and protect members of our own family who might be targets of these kinds of scams.

Should You Use Rent To Own To Buy A House?

Maybe, but it will work better if you do it yourself!

There is a new way to get yourself into home ownership. A company is offering a service where they purchase the home you want then rent it back to you for some agreed upon period. At the end of that period, you get to buy the home.

While this is a great idea, the concept of doing this yourself has been around forever! For those times when the seller simply cannot afford to rent to you and needs to completely cash out, this service might be good to use. However, there is a much better deal to be had if you can find the right landlord/seller and negotiate the same kind of arrangement yourself! But in that case, all the extra money you save is yours!

In todays news, we find that the Feds are going to require that the luxury market is so full of anonymous all cash buyers that are LLCs that they are gong to require the names of the officers of the LLC be revealed. Right now, they are focused on Miami and New York where apparently, a considerable number of the buyers in those luxury markets are in fact LLCs. So much so that there is a concern that this will pop a luxury market bubble in those areas!

Also, Zillow is reporting that lending rates are now below what they were before the fed raised interest rates. Good news for folks looking for amazing rates for that upcoming home purchase!
