Estimates so far indicate that summer 2014 is likely to be a better than usual season for Alaska Real Estate home sales. The past winter threw a wet blanket over all kinds of business activity, creating a perfect scenario for a sales bounce back—and that’s exactly what is beginning to show up in the stats. As Bloomberg News reported last week, sales of homes “climbed in April for the first time in three months…the biggest in six months…” If you will be taking advantage of the uptick by listing your property for this summer’s market, having an open house in Real Estate Kenai is a prime way to attract prospective buyers. With a little focus … Continue reading

“U.S. Backs Off Tight Mortgage Rules” screamed the top headline on the front page of The Wall Street Journal last week. For Alaska Real Estate mortgage shoppers, it could scarcely have been better news. Probably. ‘Probably’ because any change is not yet a done deal, but it’s hard to see what will derail the likely full reverse of the federal establishment’s years-long tight home loan policy. Why is this suddenly in the cards? The full answer is complicated, but here is a quick (admittedly over-simplified) summary of what’s been happening to Real Estate Kenai mortgage applicants—and what probably lies ahead. The ongoing real estate recovery has been less of a boon to banks (including Kenai … Continue reading

Your credit score will have a major impact when it comes to the cost you wind up paying for a Alaska Real Estate mortgage. A buyer with a high credit score of 750 or above will qualify for the most competitive interest rates available; but today’s tightened lending standards mean that some borrowers with scores under 600 may not qualify for a mortgage at all. And no matter what, a low credit score can mean paying an extra 3%-4% interest charge on every payment. There is nothing permanent about a credit score. Real Estate Kenai homebuyers who realize its importance—and who take early steps to improve their own—can save literally thousands of dollars. 1. You … Continue reading

Sure, real estate sales in Alaska Real Estate can in fact involve elements of creativity, presentation, personality, all of which make for interesting television viewing. But in real reality, successful real estate sales are largely based on contracts, disclosures, inspections, contingencies, and time. They may be less telegenic, but can be dramatic, especially when you’ve done everything in your power to make sure that a deal works out smoothly, only to be faced with … Continue reading
