Recently, we worked with a family from Germany who was looking for a place to live in the Chandler area. They were traveling back and forth, from Germany to Arizona, because of delays and certain family issues they had to deal with. Long story short, everyone involved in helping them find a home kept it together and helped them close on time right before Christmas!

After they had moved in and were situated in their new home, they sent us a Thank You video that really meant a lot to us. As a token of our appreciation for such wonderful clients, we wanted to share the video with you here today. To see a special message from these wonderful people, click here!

Welcome back to the Omni Real Estate Report! Today, we have some awesome news for home buyers.

Recently, the FHA decided to lower their mortgage insurance premium! After the market meltdown, the FHA had to increase their mortgage insurance premium to protect against losses because of all the foreclosures taking place. For a while, that rise in insurance premiums made FHA loans a lot less affordable. 

Now, a whole slew of positive economic news - including rising home values, lower unemployment, and a stock market on the rise - has led FHA to lower the premium from 1.35% to .85%! 
What does this mean for you?

On a typical $200,000 loan, this decrease will save new homeowners $1,000 a year on monthly payments! The lower rate will, in effect, make loans more affordable and will allow about 250,000 people nationally to buy their first home over the next few years.

In the Phoenix market, the median home price is right around $212,000, and the FHA loan limit is around $271,000. This means there is a lot of room for buyers to get a really great loan on a really great property! Additionally, at only 3.5% down, you don't need to have deep pockets to get into the home of your dreams.

If you're looking for a more conventional loan that's still affordable, we have more good news. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have recently rolled out 3% down programs that mimic the 3.5% down program for FHA. This is as low as conventional loan rates are likely to get!

As you can see, there are a lot of affordable options out there right now. If you're interested in making your move in the Phoenix or Chandler areas, we would love to give you a hand. We can put you in touch with a reputable mortgage professional who can help you decide which program makes the most sense for your specific situation.

Welcome to the latest edition of the OMNI Real Estate Report! 

We expect 2015 to be a huge year for buyers. A lot of people who had short sales and  foreclosures as a result of the crash will re-enter the market this year. Additionally, we think this is the year millennials will enter the market in big numbers. If you're trying to buy a home in the next 12 months, you need to be prepared to compete in a very different market.

To help you, we thought we would share some advice from a completely unbiased source, the Motley Fool. Here are their 8 critical steps to make your home purchase a success:
  1. Work with a real estate expert: When buying, choose a full-time agent who is knowledgeable about the market and is a skilled negotiator so your interests are protected.
  2. Get pre-approved and work with a solid lender: A seasoned professional knows where to send you so that you'll be properly taken care of. Working with a lender who has seen it all will ensure that your loan will close on time, and with little hassle.
  3. Limit your expenditures: Your lender will continually check your credit history until closing. If you make a big purchase, it can throw the whole process out of whack. Plan a budget and stick to it.
  4. Communicate with your real estate professional: Ask a lot of questions and stay in close touch with everyone involved in the transaction if you want to avoid surprises.
  5. Be open and honest: If you have credit issues or job troubles, make sure to disclose that to your real estate agent and lender so we can take care of problems in the beginning. 
  6. Let your agent negotiate: If you select the right agent, they will negotiate the best possible deal on your behalf. If you want to accomplish your buying goals, work with someone who has negotiated thousands of times and has the experience to close the deal in your favor. 
  7. Time matters: If you have a request from your lender, title, or real estate agent for a piece of paperwork, deliver it as fast as you can. Delays can sometimes lead to missing deadlines, which can lead to missing out on the home you want.
  8. The work is worth it: Remember, at the end of the day, all the work is worth it. Once you have the keys to your new home in your hand, you won't have second thoughts.
If you have any specific questions about what you can do to make the home buying process a success, don't hesitate to give us a call or shoot us an email. We would love to help you accomplish your real estate goals!
