Today I'd love to share another great place to live in Kansas, Shawnee!  Shawnee is a really wonderful place and especially if you're looking for an FHA Home Loan Shawnee then you've come to the right place.  We're in the business of helping people get into the best mortgage plan for purchasing their new home!  The FHA Home Loan Shawnee is the perfect program for people who don't have the usual 20% down payment that a conventional loan declares a must have, because the FHA mortgage loan only requires a 3.5% down payment. Which is great when you're a first time home buyer or simply don't have the savings to go along with a conventional purchase. If you'd like to hear more from our KC Loan Tips Resident expert, Darren Copeland, then feel free to watch the video below and then apply online...

There's a lot of advice out there on the net when you're thinking about buying a home in Shawnee Kansas. Tons of blog articles about how to purchase, when to purchase, negotiations, and various and sundry other ideas about real estate and mortgages.  So we thought we'd put together a quick little list that will help you with your home loan and real estate process!  We'd call them secrets, but they aren't really secrets, more simple things that most people wouldn't think of when it comes to mortgage loans and buying a home. #10 - Don't move your money! When it comes down to it, having money in your accounts and being able to trace it all is very important for lenders (especially for us, because we like to keep away the stressful stuff!)  So we reccomend not moving money in and out of yo...

Mortgages Shawnee KSI was recently reminded that living life in an apartment complex can be difficult to say the least.  A buddy of mine was telling me this story about how his next door neighbor would have people showing up at all hours screaming things like "Where's MY MONEY?!" and having ridiculously loud parties.  It was kind of like living in a dorm again!  Of course being a Mortgage lender, I suggested why not take some of your hard earned cash and turn it into a home?  Now, he's a proud home owner and buidling equity in his house! There are great loan options out there - such as the VA Mortgage loan or the USDA Mortgage.  Each one of these loans has it's very on unique attributes.  The VA loan requires that you be either an active duty or retired military service member, it's jus...

The Shawnee KS real estate market in zip code  66216 is hot.  As of May 2, 2013, there are 106 active homes and 82 homes are under contract.  In the last 30 days, 22 homes in zip code 66216 have closed.     The average sales price was $191,701 and the average list price was $195,586, meaning that homes sold for 98% of list price.   Days on market for homes sold were down to 32, compared to 81 a year ago.    All this means is that inventory is low and it's a great time to sell.  Buyers need to have their loans preapproved and be ready to pull the trigger when they find a property.  Sellers need to be prepared to move because if the property is in good condition and priced right, it will probably sell pretty quickly in this zip code.     For an Individualized Market Analysis in 66216 or a...

5 Things Every  Shawnee KS Home Seller Needs to Know About Price Reductions1. Pricing the property properly when the home first goes on the market is key to maximizing the return the seller will realize and minimizing the hassles of having their home on the market.    Before getting into real estate I would have subscribed to that common seller belief that you should price high because you can always come down.  It didn't take long for me to be in the business (and selling my own home) to realize that is exactly the wrong approach.           Pricing your home competitively will generate the most activity from agents and buyers.  Buyers are on the internet checking out homes and values.  They are very knowledgeable about values.  Though buyers always want the best deal (just like sellers...

  Shawnee KS Real Estate Market Zip Code 66216 - 2010-2012   Shawnee KS Homes Sales in Zip Code 66216 are increasing in 2012 compared to 2010.  This data is as of December 14 so as it is updated, we may see even more sales.  The title company representatives are very busy these days, so I expect a few more sales to be noted.  The sales for  under $200,000 and from $200,000 to $300,000. are very busy.  Today's low interest rates make it a great time to move up.  With the cost of capital being so low, buyers are finding that the same money can buy so much more house.  Sellers, too, are finding that now is a good time to sell since more Shawnee homebuyers are  looking and inventory is low.  We are seeing prices rise a little from recent history.   If you are interested in selling a home in...
