Homebuilders Look to Inspire the Market in 2010

In a market that is begging to rebound, investors are looking towards some of the nation's largest home builders for inspiring news of what may lay ahead for 2010. Although there is not much hope of seeing profits within the home building industry just yet, there are whispers of a potential rebound due to the reduction of losses that were reported for the fourth quarter of last year. Lennar Corp. is currently the nation's third largest homebuilder. In 2008, they reported a $5.12 loss per share. The news for 2009 was far better than expected. Lennar reported only a $.47 loss per share for the last quarter ending on Nov 30. Analysts are predicting that the company just may return to profitability in 2010.

Seven Simple Steps to Buying Your First Home

The most frequent question I am asked by new clients is, "What do I need to do to buy a house?" This is a very good question. It's really hard to know all the details and steps involved in purchasing a home, if you are not involved in real estate on a daily basis - and most of you are probably not. Based on my many years helping people to buy houses, I've distilled the process down to seven simple steps. Each buying situation will have its own unique fine points, but these seven steps are crucial in most situations. So, let's get started: Proof of Financing. It is crucial that you can show a prospective seller that you either already have the cash to buy a home, or that you can obtain a large enough mortgage loan.

Architectural Marvel - Staircases

Over the years, the architectural marvels have done wonders to our staircases. The running stairs in a shopping mall attracts the kids to have fun. And ditching the escalators is the possible reason behind it. Besides giving a trendy look, the benefits to the individual using the stair is uncountable. Stair climbing is regarded as one of the best exercises to lose weight. Other benefits of using the staircases are improved bone density in post-menopausal women, improved amount of good cholesterol in blood, and increase in the power of leg which reduces the risk of injury out of fall in the future and many more.

Negotiating Tips For the Commercial Property Tenant

Whether you are starting a new business or seeking a new location for your existing business, it is important that you understand the lease process before you enter any negotiations with potential landlords. Location may be the most important factor, initially, to the success of your business; however, the terms of the lease you enter into could make or break you down the road. Never sign the landlord's Standard Lease Agreement. Always negotiate for the most favourable terms that you can get. Before you even begin looking at desirable locations for your business, you should already have analyzed your needs and determined your space requirements as well as the amenities and services you will need your landlord to provide for the successful operation of your enterprise.

Foreclosures [39]

Real Estate Foreclosures - If Renting, Know Your Rights

If you are renting, these times of continued real estate foreclosures should be enough to goad you to know your rights before you experience eviction due to your landlord's foreclosure. You do not have to wait for your landlord to tell you the property you are renting has been foreclosed and you have to move out immediately. A lot of distressed landlords do not notify their tenants properly in case of foreclosure for fear of having their properties vacated before the actual foreclosure is implemented. Many of these troubled landlords also no longer have the money to pay back security deposits.There is one legal way for you to know in advance if your landlord is being foreclosed upon.

Homes [34]

Willing a Market to Recovery

I find it very intriguing that there are many listings in the South Bay real estate market that are clearly priced well above current market rates. This has been the subject of many articles and yet it still fascinates me how frequently it occurs. In the South Bay region of Los Angeles, the median sales prices of 2009 were fairly consistent with late 2004. This has been pretty well documented locally and the market consistently reaffirms this point. Nonetheless, there are numerous examples of listings currently on the market at 2007 pricing when most sub-areas here hit the mountaintop. Many of these homes have already had downward adjustments and may have second or third rounds of corrections.

Land [27]

Now May Be the Time to Buy Land

Many markets within the Western states are waning from the stress of few to little land sales. In the local markets of Idaho there are up to 35 years of inventory and longer in rural small town communities. The question here is: Not what land is for sale but rather whose cash is for sale. I have cash and it is for sale to the highest bidders who brings me the largest acreage with the greatest list of amenities. Is that not what you are thinking? I have cash who wants it the most! If you are a seller and don't need the sale take the property off the market you are contributing to an oversupply. If you are a buyer consider making lots of offers on virtually every property out there for dirt cheap and flush out the sellers that need your cash.

Marketing [32]

Luxury Real Estate Marketing - Thank You For Not Calling Back

Alexandra here... your reporter at large, covering great customer service or the lack thereof. There is definitely an important lesson in this for your luxury real estate marketing practice. Recently, I was in the process of ordering flea meds for our cats online from a company with whom I had previously done business. The website was not working, so I picked up the phone and called them. They were extremely busy and could not take my order. But, they did promise to call back in five minutes. As I sat at my desk waiting for the return call, I noticed another web site advertising the same products. I clicked on it, and found, much to my delight, that the same exact pet meds were half price.

Just Because the Criteria Is Lower, Wells Fargo Loan Modification is Still Hard to Get

A Wells Forgo loan modification is now easier than it was due to the Home Affordable Modification Program. Wells Fargo qualification standards now are very comparable to other lenders in the loan modification process. Both Wells Fargo and Wachovia loan modifications are easier to qualify for. Wells Fargo and Wachovia merged December 31, 2008, so both companies have the same standards for loan modifications. The requirements have gotten easier, but getting approved is a different story. Wells Fargo maintains a high standard on approving modified loan even though there is approximately $75 billion dollars allocated to lenders from the Home Affordable Modification Program.

Real Estate Fields

As property ownership developed, real estate has also become a major area of business. Selling, renting and development of properties, homes or buildings are the sources of profit in the real estates business. Buying or purchasing properties is a significant investment. Every parcel of land has its exclusive characteristics that this industry has evolved into many diverse fields. No two properties are the same and at least differ each in their location. This is the heterogeneous nature of a property as an investment which led to the practice of developing an opinion in the value of a property, usually the market value. This practice is called Real estate appraisal, Property valuation or Land valuation.
