A year ago, before the bandwagon was even built, we told you about what  we called “shadow consumers”. They are people who would want to buy;  they can comfortably afford home ownership most especially with today’s  rates. However, they have to calmly wait for their credit to improve  sufficient to get a mortgage. FHA would not give a loan until the elapse of three years from the occurrence of a foreclosure. Basically,  foreclosures and short sales will usually remain on your credit report  for seven years. Additionally, bankruptcies usually last for 10 years.  Waiting for this long can be quite…

At a recent meeting held in June, 2013 the Board decided that there will be 3% increase for a One (1) year lease term and 4% increase for a two (2) year lease term for leases renewed between October 1, 2013 and September 30, 2014. Please note a minimum increase of $15.00 per month for a one (1) year lease term and $20.00 per month for a two (2) year lease term will be imposed. A landlord’s failure to timely file a current apartment registration with DHCR bars the collection of any guidelines increase.

The annual report I value most is the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers. This report is packed full of useful statistics for agents and brokers who are looking to educate themselves about the sales process from the perspective of the Home Buyer and Seller.

Here are some highlights: 90% of consumers did online research before they bought their last home. 42% of buyers found the…

1. “We can have my wife sign the lease. Her credit is OK.” 2. “Why do you need our credit reports? That doesn’t tell you what good people we are.” 3. “We’re moving because our landlord is a jerk.” 4. “You won’t need a security deposit with us. We’ll take good care of your home.” 5. “I’m an attorney and more than qualified to rent your house. By the way, I found 3 illegal questions in your rental application.” 6. “Wait till you see the place when we’re done with it. You won’t recognize it.” 7. “What is your policy…

As taken from www.coolestholidayparties.com A Letter to Santa from Mom: Dear Santa, I’ve been a good mom all year. I’ve fed, cleaned and cuddled my two children on demand, visited the doctor’s office more than my doctor, sold sixty-two cases of candy bars to raise money to plant a shade tree on the school playground and figured out how to attach nine patches onto my daughter’s girl scout sash with staples and a glue gun. I was hoping you could spread my list out over several Christmases, since I had to write this letter with my son’s red crayon, on…
