From the time we're young and purchasing property with Monopoly money, we're taught that real estate is a valuable commodity. Yet, when it comes to buying a home, we usually have a long list of personal needs that come first-enough bedrooms and baths, a safe neighborhood, good schools, maybe a fenced yard.   It is important to make sure the home fits your family. But it's also a good idea to keep in mind the fact that, while a home may not be your only investment, it's probably your biggest asset, and one you should manage carefully for maximum future value.   Keep your eye on the prize. Real estate has historically been a good long-term investment. While you may be able to get higher return on other investments over the short haul, few offer the same combination of generous returns an...

Hi Everyone,  We have all heard the question what comes first the chicken or the egg, but how does this apply to real estate? I am a Home Buying Expert that just works with buyers in Spokane Washington so let me share my observations with you. I usually see Spokane Home Buyers driving around, picking up flyers, coming in to open houses, Getting on the internet and jumping from site to site, and they usually like to go shopping before they pick a Realtor to help them. It's low pressure and fun and there is no commitment.   The problem is that before you know it they find a home they want and pick a lender, to get a loan, and a realtor at the last minute to help them. This is a big mistake. Th lender may not be very good and the Realtor may not be very good, and really you don't know beca...

In todays market there are many, many homes to chose from for buyers.  How do you, as a buyer, sift through all of them and find the right home?  How do you manage your busy lifestyle and get out to see all of the homes?    Well, there is a tool out there that I would greatly recommend.  It's called the Home Scouting Report.  You can log on, enter your specific information on like the price and area, and it will pull up all the homes that match your criteria, along with all the information about the home, including price, address, current status (pending offer, sold, ect...).  It is important so that you as a buyer don't waste your precious time with homes that have been sold for a month now (but they're still in the paper or magazine), or having agent after agent call you.  See, agents...

The city of Spokane Valley expects to decide in coming months whether to move forward with consultants' suggestions for stemming the loss of businesses along the Sprague-Appleway corridor, or whether those recommendations involve a big step backward.The city's land-use and transportation consultants, Freedman Tung & Bottomley, of San Francisco, and Glatting Jackson Kercher Anglin, of Orlando, Fla., have recommended turning the 2.5 mile Sprague-Appleway couplet back into two-way streets. They also propose extending Appleway Boulevard about three miles to the east from its terminus at University Road, and creating a city-center district that would include the University City mall and land just east of it, says Scott Kuhta, the city's senior planner.Some business owners along the corridor ...

The Economic Stimulus Act of 2008 is a $168 billion plan intended to jumpstart the sliding U.S. economy. While a lot of media attention has been focused on the $600-$1,200 rebate checks that millions of taxpayers will begin receiving this spring, the new bill is also designed to help certain "high-cost regions" of the struggling housing market by:1. Temporarily increasing the "conforming loan limit" from $417,000 to as high as $729,750 in specified areas; 2. Temporarily increasing the size of loans the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) can insure from $362,000 to as high as $729,750 in specified areas.If you're looking to purchase or refinance a home in a "high-cost region," this is great news. These temporary increases could help you avoid the higher interest rates associated with "...

Emily Turley @ Tamarack Realty 509-922-7076   http://www.tamarackspokane.com/Hot, Normal, and Cold Markets Hot Market - This is an extremely competitive market, one that is advantageous to the seller. Sometimes, homes will sell as soon as they are listed or even before homes are listed. Typically, during a hot market, multiple offers will be made on each home and more often than not, homes will sell for more than their asking price. It is even more crucial to be prepared and to be ready as a buyer when the market is hot. It can be easy to get caught up in the bid for a home, but if you are prepared (pre-approved, solid in price range, realistic about your needs), it is easier to remain focused on your housing needs and price range. Normal Market - In a normal market, there is fairly a l...
