First Take with Miguel Soler!

3 Tips for Homeowners, Seller and Buyers in today's housing market.

 

  1. Homeowners - Interest rates are at an all time low right now.  Take a look at your current rate and if you are in the mid 3's to 4's call me for to set up an appointment with a lender.  You could be able to save hundreds of dollars a month.
  2. Sellers wanting to sell and buy - Looking to sell and trade up or down?  This is the perfect time for sellers as the market is on fire.
  3. Sellers wanting to sell and hold or move to other location - It might be a perfect time to sell and then wait for the market to drop and buy again.  Or if you are looking to sell and move out of the state I have contacts across the country to refer you too.

2020 COVID-19 Market Showdown!

Santa Clarita Housing during the Pandemic                                      **The numbers are shocking**

 

Unbelievable statistics as you can see below.  During mid-May I noticed this market taking a turn in a positive direction. Ask any professional and they will tell you, there is a lot of traction and excitement in real estate.  In April, I predicted that real estate would be one of the building blocks to get us back towards recovery.  Today we are seeing appraisers having challenges valuing property at a price that buyers are willing to pay.  In other words, we are seeing much buyer enthusiasm, multiple offers and homes selling for over asking price.  Now be cautious - because some home sellers are emotionally attached to their homes and are pricing them well above normal.  Recently, I have negotiated offers $10-$15K below the asking price. So your agent really needs to be in tune to where market values are in relation to the seller's feeling that they have the best home in Santa Clarita Valley.

COVID 19 - Forbearance and What it Means for You

Miguel Soler in Discussion with Steve Tampus of Augusta Financial

Mortgage Forbearance Key Points

EACH MORTGAGE LENDER HAS THEIR OWN POLICY.

  • Mortgage forbearance does not reduce how much you owe, and the total amount of your deferred or reduced payments must be repaid in the future.
  • After your forbearance period, you will be required to repay the total of your deferred or reduced payments, plus interest. This may be required to be paid as a lump sum single payment, Talk to your lender!
  • Forbearance will require you to make larger future payments to repay what you owe, and it may extend the length of your mortgage term.
  • If you are unable to satisfy the terms of your forbearance, it could lead to foreclosure.
  • Entering into forbearance may disqualify you from obtaining a new mortgage in the near future, whether to purchase or refinance a home.
  • It may not be possible to receive forbearance a second time, so it should be saved for when you need it the most.
