This past week (Sunday through Saturday - 02/28-03/06), The Appointment Center set 2,520 appointments. This was the second busiest week ever for The Appointment Center!

Buyers are out and looking at homes. It is going to be a great spring!

Don't wait to List and Sell your home!!  Spring market is here!!  In the northern Cincinnati area, call Sibcy Cline Realtor Michelle Sloan for a FREE Competitive Market Analysis.  www.SloanSellsHomes.com

Buyers -- Time is running out!

Potential home buyers who delay have a lot to lose.


First-time home buyer and move-up tax credits worth $8,000 and $6,500, respectively, expire April 30. Buyers who qualify get a dollar-for-dollar reduction in taxes, or a cash payment, if they don't pay enough taxes to cover the credit.

Other factors that should spur buyers:

Low mortgage rates. If the Federal Reserve stops buying mortgage-backed securities at the end of March, 30-year rates will almost certainly rise to more than 6%. Freddie Mac documented a decline in mortgage rates during the week ended March 4, with 30-year fixed home loans slipping to 4.97% from 5.05% and 15-year interest averaging 4.33%.

Investors -- News Alert

HUD TAKES ACTION TO SPEED RESALE OF FORECLOSED PROPERTIES TO NEW OWNERS


Measure to help bring stability to home values and accelerate sale of vacant properties

WASHINGTON - In an effort to stabilize home values and improve conditions in communities where foreclosure activity is high, HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan announced a temporary policy that will expand access to FHA mortgage insurance and allow for the quick resale of foreclosed properties. The announcement is part of the Obama administration commitment to addressing foreclosure.

"As a result of the tightened credit market, FHA-insured mortgage financing is often the only means of financing available to potential homebuyers," said Donovan. "FHA has an unprecedented opportunity to fulfill its mission by helping many homebuyers find affordable housing while contributing to neighborhood stabilization."

With certain exceptions, FHA currently prohibits insuring a mortgage on a home owned by the seller for less than 90 days. This temporary waiver will give FHA borrowers access to a broader array of recently foreclosed properties.

"This change in policy is temporary and will have very strict conditions and guidelines to assure that predatory practices are not allowed," Donovan said.

The policy change will permit buyers to use FHA-insured financing to purchase HUD-owned properties, bank-owned properties, or properties resold through private sales. This will allow homes to resell as quickly as possible, helping to stabilize real estate prices and to revitalize neighborhoods and communities.

"FHA borrowers, because of the restrictions we are now lifting, have often been shut out from buying affordable properties," said FHA Commissioner David H. Stevens. "This action will enable our borrowers, especially first-time buyers, to take advantage of this opportunity."

The waiver will take effect on February 1, 2010.  To protect FHA borrowers against predatory practices of "flipping" where properties are quickly resold at inflated prices to unsuspecting borrowers, this waiver is limited to those sales meeting the following general conditions:

1. All transactions must be arms-length, with no identity of interest between the buyer and seller or other parties participating in the sales transaction.

2. In cases in which the sales price of the property is 20 percent or more above the seller's acquisition cost, the waiver will only apply if the lender meets specific conditions.

3. The waiver is limited to forward mortgages, and does not apply to the Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) for purchase program.

Specific conditions and other details of this new temporary policy are in the text of the waiver, available on HUD's website.

HUD is the nation's housing agency committed to sustaining homeownership; creating affordable housing opportunities for low-income Americans; and supporting the homeless, elderly, people with disabilities and people living with AIDS. The Department also promotes economic and community development ad enforces the nation's fair housing laws. More information about HUD and its programs is available on the Internet at www.hud.gov and espanol.hud.gov.

The 2010 Home Buyer Tax Credit

Late last year, Congress modified the $8,000 First-Time Home Buyer Tax Credit program, converting it from a "first-time" buyer program into an "everyone" buyer program.

Under the new terms, first-time buyers are eligible for up to $8,000 in federal tax credits and long-time homeowners can get up to $6,500. A "long-time" homeowner is someone who has owned a primary residence for 5 or more consecutive years dating back to 2002.

April 30, 2010 : You must be under contract for your new home


June 30, 2010 : You must be closed on your new home

Interest rates predicted to reach 6%

Interest rates are likely to rise to 6% by the end of 2010, predicted Amy Crews Cutts, deputy chief economist at Freddie Mac.


The end of the Federal Reserve program that buys mortgage-backed securities will drive rates higher because private buyers will demand more return than the Fed.

"Extraordinary resources have been put into keeping the rates down and supporting the mortgage markets and it's hard to imagine that the rates can go much lower than they are," Crews Cutts said. "Anything we get at or below 5% is a gift at this point."

Source: Washington Post

So, don't wait.  If you are planning to buy this year.  Do it now!!  Rates are hovering around 5%.  You can get a lot more home for your money with a lower interest rate.  In northern Cincinnati including Mason, West Chester, Maineville, Loveland - Call Sibcy Cline Realtor Michelle Sloan for the latest and best information regarding real estate in the area.
