Buying REOs is a very popular method of buying Dayton Ohio real estate for investment.  If you're just getting started accumulating investment property, this is one way you can get very good deals and amass a great deal of property quickly. REO stands for Real Estate Owned and is the acronym banks place on properties they have taken back from mortgage defaults. REOs are considered non-performing assets meaning they have value but are not bringing in any money—bad for the bank, good for you. Buy REOs at Foreclosure Auctions Foreclosure auctions are a great way to get fantastic deals that you might not be able to convince a bank to go with prior to the event. Some savvy investors try to catch properties while they are in pre-foreclosure which avoids a property being bid up in an auction a...

All the talk is about how the President's stimulus plan helps out new and first time home buyers.  The good news is that it also helps homeowners.  You can get stimulus plan benefits from your existing Beavercreek real estate too.  Add a little green living to your environment and you'll be pocketing some change at the end of the year from your income tax return. Under the stimulus plan, both eco friendly new home purchases and eco friendly improvements on existing homes are tax deductible. Now's the time to make your home more energy efficient and get a break at the end of the year for your efforts. Going green saves money, makes your living environment healthier, and improves the world we live in. To reap the benefits from the stimulus plan, you can make major home improvements such a...

Is this a good time for first time home buyers to consider a Beavercreek home? It's a familiar question with the economy in the state it is in. Here are a few reasons why a home is still a great investment for first time home buyers. Pride of Ownership This will never go away no matter what the economy is like. Owning your own home is the American dream for a reason.  It just feels good to take care of a Beavercreek home that's yours and yours alone. Tax Incentives Owning your own home is one of the best tax deductions. The new stimulus plan makes that tax incentive better than ever before. Not only can you deduct your interest payments on your tax forms this year and for every year during the life of your mortgage, the stimulus plan allows a huge homebuyer tax credit of $8,000 for home...

Many people go through life one paycheck to the next and never bother to figure out where their money is going. It's important to know where your money is going and what you can afford if you are thinking about buying a new Beavercreek home. Here's how to start up a monthly budget that will keep you in the know about where your money is running off to each month. ·  Find a program you're comfortable using.  Your computer probably came with a spreadsheet program. If you are not used to using one open it up and become familiar with the program.  It's a great tool to use to create a budget.  If by chance your computer doesn't have a spreadsheet program, you can use an online program like Budget Pulse, or other useful online budget systems such as Mvelopes. ·  Enter your absolute monthly ex...

I absolutely love the idea of promoting one another when we can! As a result, I have a project called "Twitter Friend of the Week." Each week, I'll showcase one or two of my Twitter Friends so that you can "meet" them. This week, my featured Twitter Friend is Cap’n Billy of Pirate Parenting. Cap’n Billy is BY FAR the most unusual Twitter Friend I have. Here's what Cap’n Billy had to tell us: What is your primary business? Merchant vessel acquisition What is unique about you or your business? I have a hook and a peg leg. I like pillaging, plundering, rum and long walks off the plank. What is one fun thing about yourself that most of us don't know? I'd tell ye but I'd have to kill ye afterwards. Do you work from home or an outside office? I work from a ship-board office. What is your fav...

Buyer's remorse happens to a lot of people. The fear of signing a long term commitment for a mortgage at the closing of a Beavercreek real estate deal--be it for a family home or investment property can be daunting. It's important to not let your fear get the best of you for many reasons. Not only can you miss out on the property you've looked so long for, you can lose a lot more than that.Walking away from a deal before closing can mean losing any earnest money you have put down when you made an offer on the property. Unless you made a no earnest money offer; which is highly unusual, you will lose it by deciding not to go through with the closing. There are a few contingencies that may allow you to get all or some of your earnest money back when you walk away, but only if you have list...

Rent or Buy a Beavercreek Ohio Condo or Ranch Condo With the current economy, it may seem like a better idea to rent a Beavercreek Ohio condo or Ranch Condo instead of buying one. Let's explore some of the reasons why it's still better to buy rather than rent. Throwing Money Away When you rent that's basically what you're doing. You give your money away in exchange for a 'perishable' item—one month of living space. Once that month is over, the money is gone and you didn't get anything of long term value in return. When you buy a Beavercreek Ohio condo you still spend money for a month of living space, but in addition, you're building long term equity. It may take longer and property may not increase in value as quickly as it did in the past, at least for now, but the money you spend bec...
