Military Families have just been punched in the face!

Military families have been punched in the face by our House of Representatives.  The House has passed a bill to be sent to the Senate that would approve a 5% reduction in BAH (Basic Allowance for Housing).  

According to a recent Pew Research Report, serving in the military was “practically a requirement for serving in Congress.” As recently as the early post-Vietnam era of the late 1970s, a combined 77-percent of the members in the House and Senate had prior military service. Today, however, only approximately 20-percent of our political representatives have military experience.  This means are politicians are out of touch with the needs of military families and veterans.

Other projected cuts include cuts to military commissaries (have they seen grocery store prices)….. Cuts to tuition assistance for active duty. Veterans in Congress

 According to Military by owner: They are out of touch because they are without having experienced moving cross-country every two to three years and the resulting financial hardships that come with said moves, most notably spousal employment, military families can easily discredit our representatives as being out of touch. 

If this is passed through the Senate Military families will be KO’d once again………………

Ready to leap into buying a home this leap year!

Sitting on the fence wondering if you should buy a home. Take the Leap of faith.

With interest rates starting at 3.75% and up and the best inventory in years it would be ashame to let the opportunity slip by you.    Image

First – Leap into getting pre-approved- through a reputable lender that will supply you with a copy of your tri-merge credit report.  Be sure to address any errors, problems, or discrepancies up front.

Second – Decide on your needs vs wants and develop your search criteria (bedrooms, baths, amenities, etc…). This may include creating a reasonable well thought out budget for your new home payment (PITI- principal, interest, taxes, and insurance) and try paying yourself that payment for a few months to see if you can handle it. Do not forget to budget for maintenance and unexpected repairs.

Third – CONTACT ME and lets go house shopping!!!!

Buying a Condo with FHA Financing then Listen UP

VA Realtors have a new tool they can use to check for FHA approved condo complexes.

VAREALTOR.com/condocheck  enter zip code or city state and get your answers

In May 2011 every condo complex was de certified and forced to reapply for FHA condo certification status. We are finding most became re-certified but a few have not.  What ever the reason according to the Virginia Association of Realtors, “the end result is that buyers who want a unit in the un-certified condos are ineligible for FHA financing-something many seller don’t discover until late in the process when they learn that their pool of prospective buyers has shrunk considerably….and because the certification process can take months deals fall through. ”

Buyers if you are planning to use FHA financing have your agent check the status of the complexes you want to view preferably before your first initial visit.

For a condo to meet FHA loan guidelines it must:

At least 50% of the units must be owner occupied

Have specific Insurance coverage

No more than 25% of the property’s total floor area can be used for commercial purposes ( so mixed used developments will not usually qualify)

No more than 10% of units can be owned by more than 1 person or entity.

No more than 30% can be financed by FHA

No more than 15% of the total units can be delinquent on their dues more than 30 days past due.

At least 50% of unit in complex sold. (Can not have more than 50% vacancy)

Must maintain a budget with sufficient funds for maintainace of the common areas and required condo project.

If you are interested in buying a condo, condo complex or single family home zoned condo in Hampton Roads then contact me.

Real Estate Investing Think big like the big wigs

3 Virginia Beach Real Estate Stocks  were voted best stocks according to StockScounter’s February report.

Real Estate Investing

The Scouter score is based on how the stock performs in the following criteria: business fundamentals, price behavior, valuation and stock-ownership characteristics appear to predict a rising price in the coming weeks, based on how those factors have influenced stock prices in the past.  REIT’s- are usually formed to finance luxury condo and apartment ventures, strip malls, shopping malls, and commercial buildings that generate income from rents.

Real Estate investment Trust (REIT)- according to Wikepedia- a REIT is a company that owns, and in most cases operates, income-producing real estate. Some REITs finance real estate. To be a REIT, a company must distribute at least 90 percent of its taxable income to shareholders annually in the form of dividends.   This is a great way for the girl next door to buy a piece of the shopping mall down the road or gain a profit from the high rise being built down the street.   Why not own your condo and a peice of the whole block.  When investing in a REIT -you need to think big.

Looking for a place to invest those tax refunds, research more about these stocks. And if all else fells call me to buy a home, condo, or investment property.

The 3 Virginia stocks that topped the list were:

Company

Digital Realty Trust (DLR +0.21%, news)

Sector

Real estate investment trust

Jan price

$70.86

Avalonbay Communities (AVB +0.95%) Real estate investment trust $136.01 10
Virginia Commerce Bancorp (VCBI +3.83%, news) Banking $8.86 10
