The entryway is a significant space within a home — it’s the first thing a potential buyer sees, and it sets the stage for the whole vibe of the home. Buyers can form opinions on a home within seconds of opening that front door. Your clients can make a few simple changes to their entryways to make that important first impression. Here are some hot trends for 2017.
Hello friends and clients,
Here’s an interesting event that will likely affect the real estate market. On 7/29/14, and effective 8/16/14 FannieMae announced it will extend the waiting period of anyone who had a short sale from 2 years to 4 years to re-qualify for a home loan. There seemed to be little warning or publicity but as many home owners concluded a short sale in recent years, many will have to wait 2 more years to re-purchase a home.
The immediate result of this is sure to be a slowdown of the buying and bidding frenzy common the last few years. For buyers that is good news. You should have more time to make a decision and maybe even be able to negotiate a little. From a seller’s point of view, it should take a little longer and you will need to be more focused on your buyer’s concerns. If you are holding real estate expect the rapid price escalations to slow to match inflation rates.
