All Foreclosures for saleDid you do a loan modification during the real estate crisis? If you did you certainly were not alone.  The loan modifications helped many people avoid foreclosure during the real estate bust. Some loan modifications reduced the amount a homeowner owned on their home which also lowered payments. Many did not understand the terms of the reduction and still don't today.  

Now that many communities have become stable, homeowners are wanting to take advantage of the opportunity to sell.  That makes sense for many that have not been able to with the lack of equity.  We have heard stories of some homeowners having to pay up to 20% of the gain to the lender.  

Not all loan modifications used the same approach so it is important to pull out your agreement and see what happens when you sell your home 10 years later.  You need to see if you have a shared appreciation modification.  If you do, when you sell, the lender will receive some of your equity.  The question is how much and is there a time limit. You want to research the terms of your loan modification before you plan on selling as no one likes a last minute closing surprise.

Elephant in the RoomThere is often an elephant in the room and many real estate agents and sellers attempt to ignore it.  Can you imagine trying to ignore an elephant roaming around your home?  It would not be something to pretend like it doesn't exist right?  Well neither is ignoring appraisal issues.  You have to acknowledge appraisals and have a plan to deal it.  Your Palm Beach County real estate agent and Martin County real estate agent is on your side to make selling easier.

The great news is we have the plan and solution to help you deal with appraisals.  There are several ways to do this.  Here are a few options:

Have a pre-list appraisal.  We recommend a real estate appraiser that is realistically optimistic.  What is the most that your home will appraise for in today's market?

Selecting the right contract.  Having a buyer that is cash or has a large down payment avoids the appraisal issues.

Negotiating upfront that if there are appraisal issues, the buyer will make up the difference.  Yes that happens for our clients.

Getting an offer is exciting however it takes an experienced team to overcome the challenges of a real estate transaction.  It takes experience to deal with title, financing and inspection issues. Call Treu Group and let us take the stress off of you!

The international market is alive and well in Florida.  It really is a small world after all.  Changes globally impact us here at home in Florida both positively and negatively.  Why does the international market matter so much?  Florida receives 22% of all international buyers.  In fact, we are the number one state that international buyers purchase in.  Many guess that California or New York are the most popular however they trail Florida with !5% for California and 4% for New York. This shift has occurred since because of the perceived value for Florida properties. 

One of the benefits of the international buyer is that their average sales price is higher.  The average sales price for Florida buyers was $258,200 compared to Florida International buyers at $538,600. 

Why do international buyers purchase a home in Florida? 

41% selected Florida because it is a desirable location.  That is an easy guess.  Who wouldn't love warm weather, great beaches and a lot of entertainment. 

30% selected Florida because it was a secure investment. 

21% selected Florida because it was a profitable investment. 

The value of the US dollar versus their prospective country's currency impacted their ability or comfort to make a purchase.  The Canadian, Brazil and Britain have seen the impact and therefore their buying decisions. 

Why do international buyers decide not to purchase?  The number one reason is the cost of the property.  This is up 7% in a year.  The other reason is that they could not find the right property.  Many times, this could be avoided by finding the right agent that understands their needs, takes a consultative approach, has an understanding of the market and a proven track record. 

The International Market is always changing and it is important to look for the opportunities that are current and also upcoming.  I would say all countries are important however some impact our real estate market more than others.  Changes in economic and political situations in other countries as well as the United States can impact buying and selling decisions for South Florida. 

Why is the International Market important?  They make up many of our real estate transactions and also tend to buy more expensive properties.  What do the international buyers spend by country?

Brazil                      $587,700 

Canada                   $376,800

China                   $1,064,000

United Kingdom       $289,600

Venezuela                $390,400

Western Europe       $844,500

Most of the international buyers are purchasing with cash which also helps with our real estate market stability.  Only about 20% of the buyers obtained a mortgage. 

Why are they buying?  We are seeing a variety of reasons.  Buyers from the UK were the most likely to purchase for vacation or rental.  Buyers from China like to buy properties for their primary residence or for their college students to occupy.  This is one of the reasons that the Chinese tend to spend more. 

Why should Palm Beach County be considered by international buyers?  Palm Beach County offers stability and opportunity.  There are amazing communities that have a variety of lifestyles including golf, great beaches and unlimited entertainment.  There is something for everyone.
