Scottsdale Real Estate Demand Surges as Tax Credit Got a New Lifeline

The Scottsdale real estate market is again soaring high, thanks to Pres. Obama, and his decision to extend the tax credit deadline on the home deals for the first time home buyers till April 30, 2010. The original deadline for the $8,000 tax credit break was November 30, 2009. The Obama administration has also made some changes in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 to enable existing home owners avail the tax credit on the purchase of a bigger primary residence.

The updated version of the tax credit has announced a tax break of 10% of the total purchase price of the home amounting to maximum $8,000 for the first time home buyer. It also includes a tax break of $6,500 for the existing home owners who want to shift to a bigger primary residence. To qualify for the first time home buyers’ tax credit, the applicant has to show that he or she has not owned a home in last three years. To qualify for the existing home owners’ tax credit, the applicant needs to show ownership and occupancy of a primary residence for at least 5 consecutive years in the last 8 years.

“In Scottsdale, since the news came, we are seeing a significant rise in the inflow of buyers,” said Morgan H Hodges, a managing partner of MoJo Realty Group. He further added, “The first phase of the credit break pulled the first time home buyers into the market, and this new extension worked as a magnet to pull those who always wanted to move into a bigger and better house. Scottsdale real estate is hot now.”

Any single tax payer or married couple filing joint return can apply for the tax credit. The single filer should have gross earnings of less than $125,000, and joint filers should have gross earnings of up to $225,000 to avail a full tax credit under the updated American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. A single filer earning between $125,000 and $145,000, and a joint filers earning between $225,000 and $245,000 will be eligible for the partial tax credit only. Any single filer earning more than $145,000, and any joint filers earning more than $245,000 are not eligible for any tax credit.

One should keep in mind that a property of more than $800,000 sale price will not qualify for the tax credit, and to qualify for the tax credit, the property contract needs to be signed on or before April 30, 2010 and the sale should be finalized on or before June 30, 2010.

“Everyone in Scottsdale is happy with this extension and inclusion of existing home buyers in the tax credit,” said Josh W. Hintzen, managing partner of MoJo Realty Group. “These changes have brought many buyers into the market. The demand for single family homes is one the rise, and the home prices are steady. As of now, we are not seeing any sign of decline in the Scottsdale real estate market in the coming months.”

The Approaching Tax Credit Deadline Is Pushing The First-Time Home Buyers Into The Market

There is a panic in the real estate market, but it’s no longer the panic driven by falling prices. The approaching tax credit deadline is creating the panic, and pushing the first-time home buyers into the market. The current rise in the demand for the Scottsdale real estate can be credited to this change in regulation.

As the November 30 deadline is closing in, the prospective home owners are trying hard to secure a deal before it is too late. The nationwide tax credit of $8,000 has worked as a catalyst in bringing the first-time home buyers to the Scottsdale and Phoenix real estate market. “The Scottsdale real estate market is hot and has been since spring, especially homes price under $400,000,” said Josh W. Hintzen, managing partner of MoJo Realty Group. He further added, “And with the November 30 deadline on the horizon, we’ve seen the Scottsdale real estate market gain momentum.”

As estimated by IRS, since February when the tax credit came in effect, in Arizona alone 38,000 taxpayers have taken the benefit under this plan, and around 1.4 million people nationwide have applied for the tax rebate. It is worth noting here that the U.S. median home price plummeted by 28 percent over 3 years in January. At that time, the market sentiment was at the lowest in 7 year.

It was only after the Congress approved American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 that the market started to recover. The first-time home buyers have been responsible for 43 percent of the home sales since the law came into effect. In a survey conducted by a leading market research company, 70 percent of the first-time home buyers said that the $8,000 rebate played a role in their purchase decision.

“The government stimulus package, falling interest rates, and well priced homes have brought buyer’s back into the housing market in Scottsdale, Phoenix and nationwide,” said Morgan H Hodges, a managing partner of MoJo Realty Group. “Supply has gone down and demand has gone up. We are in a much better market than we were 2 years ago. The numbers don’t lie.”

Realtors are divided on whether this surge and excitement in the housing market is temporary or here to stay. Some believe that the increase in home sales is mainly due to the stimulus package. Others believe that home buyers and investors have shed their fears and are back in the market regardless of the tax incentive.

Lately, there has been a lot of speculation in regards to the deadline of the first time home buyer’s tax credit. Will the government extend the cut-off date? If extended, will the credit be increased to $15,000? Will it be available to all buyer’s and not just first time home buyers? At this point, the tax incentive is set to expire November 30th and buyers should take advantage of the $8,000 while they still can.

Shouldn’t Foreclosure Always Be The Homeowner’s Last Resort?

Many families are in financial trouble because of a declining economy and an unstable real estate market. Numerous families are finding it increasingly difficult to pay for their mortgages and are in jeopardy of losing their homes to foreclosure*. Unfortunately, homeowners are not aware of the options that are available to them, or whom they can turn to for help.

First and foremost, a homeowner who is about to be or already is in financial distress should contact their current lender(s) to find out if there are options available for their particular situation. In some cases, a loan modification can be arranged directly with the lender, at no cost.

Regrettably, a significant number of home loans were poorly written; therefore, loan modification is not an option for a large portion of borrowers in distress. Homeowners may seek counseling; counseling is offered free of charge, by calling the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, HUD, toll free at: (800) 569-4287.

Homeowners should stay away from and beware of paying any fees to ANYONE, including so called, “counseling agencies”, as they are not regulated and offer little to no help. Most states have also set up toll free numbers to counsel their residents, so check with with your State of residency.

More and more homeowners, who have been unsuccessful in getting any assistance from their lenders and/or government agencies, are turning to a CERTIFIED DISTRESSED PROPERTY EXPERT© (CDPE©), a Licensed REALTOR® who specializes in helping distressed homeowners who are “upside down” on their equity, late on their mortgage payments or who are already in the foreclosure process. A CERTIFIED DISTRESSED PROPERTY EXPERT© will see the homeowner through their distressed situation by successfully negotiating a short sale with their lender(s).

Lenders are now more willing to accept a short sale offer for a property’s true value, even if it is less than the amount owed. However, lenders are receiving thousands of short sale offers per month (most of the offers are incomplete packages that get tossed away or to the side) so a complete and well-prepared short sale offer package, sent by a CERTIFIED DISTRESSED PROPERTY EXPERT©, has the highest chance to be expedited quickly through a lender’s full log.

The end result of a short sale is minor when compared to the consequences of a foreclosure. Foreclosures have a devastating effect on credit history, job security, employment opportunities, security clearances, military and law enforcement careers, and the ability to purchase a home in the future; these are just a few examples of the damaging consequences of a foreclosure. Additionally, a foreclosure becomes public record, which is searchable by anyone, and can NEVER be removed.

We have all been bombarded lately with new creative ads, mailers, door hangers, TV and radio commercials promoting “foreclosure delay experts”. These ads are an example of how advertising is being misused to confuse vulnerable homeowners. Some ads claim to provide a service whereby they guarantee a homeowner will stay in their home for one year. Another example of how deceitful information targets already distressed homeowners. The average time for a foreclosure proceeding in Florida is in excess of 200 days, free of charge; so these less-than-forthcoming advertisers are charging money, when people need it the most, for a service that homeowners, in essence, already have.

Please do not pay, or let anyone you know pay money to anybody claiming they can stop foreclosures, including attorneys. Attorneys cannot stop foreclosures! The new “fighting foreclosures” and “foreclosure defense” ads attorneys are now broadcasting are an additional example of how the manipulation of information is being used to confuse and mislead the targeted distressed homeowner. Attorneys will “fight” a foreclosure until the homeowner is out of money. The only “defense” to a foreclosure is payment. The attorney, however, for a considerable fee, can prolong the legal process of a foreclosure until the homeowner is completely broke or all legal extensions have been exhausted. Nevertheless, in the end, the homeowner will still lose their home to a foreclosure and and face all the disastrous consequences that a foreclosure brings.

If a homeowner has the available money to pay for these deceitful services, he/she should use that money to make their mortgage payments.

If the borrower can pay the total amount owed to the lender, even up to the sale date, the lender will stop foreclosure. No one but the lender can stop the foreclosure process, and they will do so when either the homeowner pays the mortgage, bringing the loan payments up to date, or there is a successful negotiation of a short sale. These are the ONLY two ways for a foreclosure process to end. The homeowner will then be able to move on with his/her life, and in many cases, be eligible to own a new home in two years.

If you (or anyone you know) are about to miss a mortgage payment, have already defaulted on a home loan, or have been served foreclosure papers, a CERTIFIED DISTRESSED PROPERTY EXPERT© is able to help. The sooner you seek help the better but help is available even up to the last phase of a foreclosure, so please do not refrain from seeking help, because you might think it is “too late”. A CDPE© will not charge the homeowner. The CDPE© gets paid by the lender, at the end of the foreclosure proceedings, due to the successful sale of the home.

I cannot emphasize enough that no money should ever leave a distressed homeowner’s hands, ever.

This information barely scratches the surface. Mortgage delinquency and foreclosures are complex issues. Each and every case has its own unique set of facts and challenges. In most cases, homeowners are experiencing this overwhelming stress alone, without help of any kind, from anyone. It does not have to be that way. Families all around the country are in desperate need of proper guidance.

Not only do homeowners feel uncomfortable seeking the help of strangers, but a good amount of distressed homeowners might not feel comfortable asking delicate, private financial questions to people they do know. As a result, they do not ask anyone, falling deeper in trouble and are more vulnerable to scams. The Short Sales Message Board is a venue that was created specifically for distressed homeowners to ask Experienced Real Estate professionals questions, while maintaining total privacy.

A foreclosure is a devastating financial and emotional process for any family to endure and recover from and it should hardly ever happen. Foreclosure IS the last resort.

* In Florida, a Judicial State, a foreclosure happens when a lender files a lawsuit in State court against a borrower.

Top Austin Real Estate Agent, Kenn Renner (www.BuyAustin.com) with Keller Williams Lake Travis Market Center in Lakeway Sold a Custom “Spec” Home in Five Days

In an economy where negative real estate and financial news has become an all too common subject of the media, it is refreshing to hear of a win-win real estate success story. On Saturday, March 7th real estate broker Kenn Renner listed a brand new custom lake view home built by Horne Brothers Custom Homes located at 8032 Riviera Estates, Leander, Texas (www.8032RivieraEstates.com).

Kenn’s buyers were alerted via email through a “client Gateway” – a free Internet search feature that allows buyers to be notified when new listings come on the market. “Our buyer called us within 24 hours of the home hitting the market, our team showed him the home immediately, and within a few days we had the purchase details worked out and now we are under contract and headed toward closing.” Kenn explained. “The strategy that we took with the builder was to wait until the home was totally completed and fully staged before putting it on the market.” In the luxury market where selling times can exceed a year, an immediate sale is rare.

The buyers, who work in the medical field, had been looking for over two years for exactly the right lake view property – being very patient and particular about the type of home and especially the view. This brand new luxury estate fit their requirements and the builder will be adding a negative edge pool to complete their dream home. Our buyers confirmed their satisfaction exclaiming “This IS home!”

“In today’s extremely competitive market it takes a combination of strategies to sell a luxury home. It boils down to – staging, pricing, marketing and patience. The property must be staged and showcased with virtual tours, professional photography and graphic floor plans. I take it a step further and include high definition video tours that feature virtual aerial flyovers utilizing Google Earth.” Kenn adds “over
85% of home buyers begin their search on the Internet – for high end homes that number is much higher and they expect video content to be a part of the presentation.” As he does with all his listings Kenn created a unique property website exclusive to the home (www.8032RivieraEstates.Com). Buyers can navigate directly to a fully interactive exclusive website that features the specific property as opposed to a static web page or a typical multiple listing link.“Sellers need the marketing edge and exclusivity in all selling situations, especially luxury homes.”

Kenn owes much of his video expertise from his many appearances on the National television – HGTV’s “House Hunters.” Kenn produces all of his videos in-house and has a full time production assistant. “This home sold so quick I was not able to get the video finished in time, but we will add it at a later date because the home is spectacular and will show great in Hi Def.” Kenn recently released a video of another Lake Travis estate property called Lime Creek Ranch (www.LimeCreekRanch.com), which showcases the property with virtual flyovers and 360-degree panoramas. “Having great video content is just the first step – we then spend a lot of time and resources getting them placed high on the search engines including Google & Youtube. We often are placed in the very first position when someone types in the keywords Austin Real Estate Videos in Google.”

He also utilizes intense search engine optimization (SEO) to get his listings and popular websites to the top of the search engines. “You must make your clients property very Internet friendly and then get them exposed with proper keyword phrases to be competitive in this market.” Having great websites also helps his clients exposure like his popular website Austin real estate website www.BuyAustin.com, which has been around since 1995 or his newly developed www.AustinHomeVideos.com.

Kenn Renner and Sport Court of Austin are featured on an up coming episode of HGTV’s number #1 rated television show “House Hunters”

On Monday, February 16th at 6:30 Central Time (7:30 Pacific/Eastern) HGTV’s # 1 rated show “House Hunters” will air featuring Lake Travis estate homes. One of the homes on the show will feature a sport court built by Sport Court of Austin. On the show, real estate expert Kenn Renner (www.buyaustin.com) will tour three luxury lakeside estates – all just twenty minutes f r o m  downtown Austin, Texas. “All of the homes were absolutely stunning but the home with the sport court was truly unique – when we saw the court with a lake view it really was a show stopper. With home buyers a sport court shouts – healthy family get-togethers!” Kenn, a twenty-five year veteran of real estate and national speaker has been encouraging his custom home building clients to consider building a sport court to enhance the value and appeal of their luxury home. He explains, “a sport court and a putting green can be installed for much less than an in-ground pool and can certainly influence a buyer’s home choice. The luxury market is a buyer’s market right now and a sport court can make the difference in final home selection.”

Kenn recently met with the owner of Sport Court of Austin, Greg Dettman, who has been building courts in the Austin area since 1978. He has built over 1000 courts in and around Austin. He agrees that these days, his clients are looking to enhance the family value of a home. He sees sport court buyers making an investment in their homes “and” their children through the quality time they will spend playing basketball, volleyball, tennis etc. “A backyard court gives kids a place to hang out at home and stay active and away f r o m the video games,” Dettman says. Sport Court of Austin has installed courts and greens for celebrities , sports stars and coaches, as well as many “not so famous people like you and me – however we are famous in our kid’s eyes and that’s what’s really important,” Dettman further adds. A popular Youtube video featuring one of his sport courts and the star of the House Hunters show can be found at http://www.JustinRenner.com.

Top Austin real estate home builder – Lennar Homes joins Kenn Renner leading Austin Realtor and owner of BuyAustin.com to assist homebuyers with new Move Assistance Programs also known as M.A.Ps

One of Austin’s premier builders, Lennar Homes and top real estate broker Kenn Renner of Keller Williams Realty, have developed a series of programs to help new homebuyers defer much of the cost associated with moving. The Move Assistance Programs (M.A.Ps) offers the following financial incentives to help a tenant or a move-up homebuyer with the expenses associated with relocating.

For Renters:

Lease Buy-Out Program – Provides assistance in paying off existing lease and/or covering the re-leasing fee.

Lease Negotiation Service – Provides expert negotiations with your current landlord.

For Move-up Homebuyers with a Home to Sell:

Expert Real Estate Counseling – Receive a free consultation with a 25-year real estate veteran.

Guaranteed Buy-out Program – A free evaluation and bottom-line price will be offered for your current home.

‘Sell Your Home for Free’ Program – A 0% net commission program that allows you to sell your home for zero total real estate commission.

Moving Cost Coverage Program – Helps defer the cost of moving expenses such as moving companies and moving trucks.

Temporary Rental Program – Provides assistance in locating temporary housing, furnished or unfurnished.

In a recent meeting, Lennar’s division president, Sean Chandler, stated, “There is no better time in recent history to purchase a new Lennar home. Austin is where everyone wants to be and Lennar is dedicated to helping homebuyers with the transition through financial incentive programs such as M.A.Ps.” Along with first class service and attention to detail – Lennar Homes is famous for their “Everything’s Included” homes. “Everything’s Included” is unique to national builders where buyers do not have to pay huge markups for “upgrades.” “Most ‘upgrades’ charged by other builders are included standard with Lennar Homes. Along with ‘Everything’s Included,’ Lennar is offering large price and financing incentives, especially on standing inventory,” Chandler adds.

Kenn Renner, a top selling central Texas real estate broker with Keller Williams Realty, and owner of www.BuyAustin.com explains, “In challenging economic times the larger more financially stable builders like Lennar are able to offer programs that the smaller builders just can’t afford to do. That is why they have called on us to develop the Move Assistance Programs (M.A.Ps).” Lennar is without a doubt pro-Realtor because they understand the need for professional counseling and guidance throughout the home-buying process. Renner adds, “Lennar understands the need for renters and move-up home buyers to have innovative alternatives such as lease buy-outs and sales cost (commission) coverage. I am pleased to be one of Lennar’s preferred Realtors.”

Lennar Homes was ranked number two nationwide by Builder Magazine in 2007 with over 30,000 homes sold nationwide. In Austin, Lennar has 18 subdivisions with prices ranging from the $110s to the $480s.

Kenn Renner (www.BuyAustin.com) consistently ranks as one of the top ten real estate agents in the city of Austin and Central Texas with over 400 home sales and over $80,000,000 in closings since 2005.

Kenn Renner Top Austin Realtor begins a series of real estate finance and foreclosure seminars in Austin Texas

Kenn will discuss how the “credit crisis” has affected lending policies, interest rates and the availability of funds.

The truth is that banks “are” lending and those that want to buy in today’s buyers market can get the financing they need – especially first time home buyers. Austin’s strong economy will be discussed and how it has been relatively sheltered from the housing crisis that has hammered other parts of the Nation. Part II of the seminar will focus on foreclosures, short sales, REO’s and HUD Repos. Strategies for capitalizing on some of the best real estate bargains in recent history will be covered in detail. Case studies and actual foreclosed properties that are available right now will be discussed.
