Now hiring because our Lochlan married her Prince Charming!

Our sweet Lochlan, one of our most favored and treasured team members, accepted the proposal of a man who lives in Hawaii!Lochlan

Although we are excited for Lochlan and Jonny, this leaves us without a very important role for our firm. And in fact, we actually would like to not only replace Lochlan’s position, we also want to hire one more top notch individual to serve in one of our sales assistant positions.

Most of the people we hire for our team come from referrals from our clients, which is what I actually prefer. I need your help in finding two talented individuals for our team.

Both positions require the following character qualities of the individual:

  •  Integrity
  • Driven
  • Verbal adroitness
  • Confident
  • Accountable
  • Prompt
  • Dependable
  • Teachable

  • Communicate with clients, lenders, title companies, and other service providers

No experience necessary and in fact that is what I prefer because I like to teach the members on my team The Sold By An Angel Team® way. J The candidate will need to obtain their real estate license. The position is compensated by commission. The average sales assistant for our team is generally compensated between $40K and $50K the first year and between $40K and $100K per year thereafter.

To apply, please have the candidate send their resume to Amanda Grove at amanda@soldbyanangel.com.

Building Family Wealth Over The Next 5 Years
December 23, 2015

Family-Wealth

As the economy continues to improve, more and more Americans are seeing their personal financial situations also improving. Instead of just getting by, many are now beginning to save and find other ways to build their net worth. One way to dramatically increase their family wealth is through the acquisition of real estate.

For example, let’s assume a young couple purchases and closes on a $250,000 home in January. What will that home be worth five years down the road?

Pulsenomics surveys a nationwide panel of over one hundred economists, real estate experts and investment & market strategists every quarter. They ask them to project how residential prices will appreciate over the next five years. According to their latest survey, here is how much value that $250,000 house will gain in the coming years.

Over a five year period, that homeowner can build their home equity to over $40,000. And, in many cases, home equity is large portion of a family’s overall net worth.

Bottom Line

If you are looking to better your family’s long-term financial situation, buying your dream home might be a great option.

Prices & Mortgage Rates Going Up in 2016
December 4, 2015

Prices-Rising-KCM

The monthly mortgage payment on a home is determined by two elements: the price of the house and the interest rate you pay on your mortgage. Recently released reports are revealing that the experts expect both elements to increase in 2016.

HOME PRICES

CoreLogic has projected a nationwide 5.2% home value appreciation for the next twelve months. Here is their breakdown by state:

Prices-KCM.jpg

MORTGAGE INTEREST RATES

All four of the entities that provide projections on mortgage interest rates agree: they’re going up in 2016. Here are the predictions over the next four quarters:

Bottom Line

With both home values and interest rates projected to increase over the next twelve months, buying (or moving-up), sooner rather than later, makes sense.

Millennials: What FICO Score is Needed to Buy a Home?
December 1, 2015

Millennials-Credit-KCM

In a recent article by the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, it was revealed that some Millennials are not looking to purchase a home simply because they don’t believe they can qualify for a mortgage.

The article quoted Jessica Lautz, the National Association of RealtorsManaging Director of Survey Research, as saying that there is a significant population that does not think they will be approved for a mortgage and doesn’t even try. The article also quoted Fannie Mae CEO Tim Mayopoulos :

“I do think that there’s a sense out there in the marketplace among borrowers that credit may not be available, especially for people with lower credit scores.”

So what credit score is necessary?

A recent survey reported that two-thirds of the respondents believe they need a very good credit score to buy a home, with 45 percent thinking a “good credit score” is over 780.

In actuality, the FICO score on closed loans (as reported by Ellie Mae) is much lower and has been dropping over the last several months.

Bottom Line

Millennials who are considering a home purchase should get advice from a local real estate or mortgage professional now. They may be surprised how much the requirements for a mortgage have eased.
