In addition to the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, intended to keep lenders from discriminating on the basis of age, last Saturday the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) issued a bulletin describing new tools which help Freddie Mac lenders evaluate properties—and new guidelines for disclosing that data to borrowers and loan … Continue reading

First-Time Soldotna Real Estate Buyers Should Check Credit Scores Early

by January 8, 2014

This has always been true, but may become even more likely as lending limitations grow increasingly strict. But it’s the occasional recording … Continue reading

How a Kenai Real Estate Home Stager’s Experience Can Pay Off

When you put your home on the market, one of the decisions it’s easy to overlook is whether to engage a Kenai Real Estate home stager.
