Happy New Year! Welcome to 2015 and a very busy real estate market here in New York!
So much real estate news is making the headlines. Let's start with the FHA reducing it's monthly insurance premium to make it more affordable for home-buyers who need to go FHA. In other good news, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are now allowing reduced down payments for conventional mortgages. This means that people who can show that they have the income to support a mortgage, but maybe haven't been able to save for a large down payment, now have more opportunities to qualify for a home loan and become home owners! I know terrific, knowledgeable mortgage professionals. If you need to chat with one for more information, let me know and I'll put you in touch.
Did you know that a house needs to be sold twice? Once to the buyer, and then again to the bank appraiser. Click here to read about important changes to the appraisal process in 2015!

My negotiating style is thorough and calculating, providing clients with all the information they need to make an informed decision.
