3 Questions to Ask Before Buying a Home Close To Denver

3 Questions to Ask Before Buying a Home Close To Denver from

http://www.keepingcurrentmatters.com/2014/10/27/3-questions-to-ask-before-buying-a-home-2/

If you are thinking about purchasing a home close to Denver right now, you are surely getting a lot of advice. Though your friends and family have your best interests at heart, they may not be fully aware of your needs and what is currently happening in Denver real estate. Let’s look at whether or not now is actually a good time for you to buy a home close to Denver.

3 Questions to Ask Before Buying a Home Close To Denver

There are three questions you should ask before purchasing in today’s Denver area real estate market:

1. Why am I buying a home close to Denver in the first place?

This truly is the most important question to answer. Forget the finances for a minute. Why did you even begin to consider purchasing a home close to Denver? For most, the reason has nothing to do with finances. A study by the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University reveals that the four major reasons people buy a home have nothing to do with money:

  • A good place to raise children and for them to get a good education
  • A place where you and your family feel safe
  • More space for you and your family
  • Control of the space

What non-financial benefits will you and your family derive from owning a home close to Denver? The answer to that question should be the biggest reason you decide to purchase or not.

2. Where are Denver home values headed?

When looking at future housing values, Home Price Expectation Survey provides a fair assessment. Every quarter, Pulsenomics surveys a nationwide panel of over one hundred economists, real estate experts and investment & market strategists about where prices are headed over the next five years. They then average the projections of all 100+ experts into a single number.

Here is what the experts projected in the latest survey:

  • Home values will appreciate by 4% in 2015.
  • The cumulative appreciation will be 19.5% by 2018.
  • Even the experts making up the most bearish quartile of the survey still are projecting a cumulative appreciation of over 11.2% by 2018.

3. Where are Denver mortgage interest rates headed?

A buyer must be concerned about more than just prices. The ‘long term cost’ of a home close to Denver can be dramatically impacted by an increase in mortgage rates.

The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), the National Association of Realtors, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have all projected that mortgage interest rates will increase by approximately one full percentage over the next twelve months.

Bottom Line

Only you and your family can know for certain the right time to purchase a home close to Denver. Answering these questions will help you make that decision.

Denver Auction Forecloser Property Bidding HomeSearch.com

Create a custom search of active homes for sale in the real time Denver MLS herehttp://denverhomesales.info/propertysearch/ .

I just completed my first attempt to bid on a foreclosed Denver auction property on www.homesearch.com.  We were not successful but learned a lot.

1. I was not happy that these properties only offer 1% to Buyer’s Agents. We valued this property between $295,000 and $305,000. Denver Foreclosure Auction on Homesearch.comThe Denver auction property was offering a commission of approximately $3,000.00 which would be almost $6,000.00 less than a normal purchase. It did not mean less work, only less money. Many agents would either insist that their clients pick up some of the difference or would refuse to help them with the process.

Denver Foreclosure Auction on Homesearch.com

2. Earnest money required was 3%, approximately $9,000 . Normally Earnest money is about 1%. This required any successful bid to put approximately $9.000 of their cash at risk. In order to bid on the Denver auction property you had to provide your credit card information for them to put a $2,500 hold on. Even though I created the bidding account for my client I had my client put in his own credit card information as this hold was too much for me to personally risk.

3. Earnest money was not refundable. In a normal purchase there are 3 valuable deadlines that if properly exercised by Buyer to terminate the purchase, they will receive their earnest money back. Without this protection a buyer would need full loan approval, an appraisal, and successful inspection before the bidding process begins in order to fully protect themselves from losing their earnest money if unable to complete the purchase.

4. We were unable to determine whether or not there would be unpaid liens on the Denver auction property that would have to be paid by the buyer. SpecificaDenver Foreclosure Auction on Homesearch.comlly we were concerned that the HOA fees were not current. HOA companies will not divulge if HOA fees are current or how much the unpaid fees are if you are not the owner. Additionally we called the bank, Nationstar, and HomeSearch.com and they were not able to tell us how much the unpaid fees were. The bank would only say that in Colorado that the new buyer would be responsible for any unpaid fees from before Nationstar foreclosed. The HOA said that the new buyer would be responsible for 6 months of fees maximum. We were asking the lender to order a status letter which would have cost the buyer up to $350.

5. How much would the Denver auction property appraise for? My partner and I valued the home between $295,000 and $305,000. You can see our valuation here. If my buyer was getting a loan for 95% of the purchase price, and he won the Denver auction property for $5,000 more than it appraised for, he would have to bring a cash down-payment of 5% + $5,000. Not only did my buyer have rely on my estimation of value but they had to decide how much cash they had to risk.

6. We learned in advance that you would be able to bid more than once, and you would see the current high bid. But there were still surprises in the bidding process. Bidding started in the $100’s but bidding the Denver auction property up was in forced increments of $7,500. We quickly ascertained that we needed to know what spot we wanted to be in the process so that we could land as close to our high bid as possible. For instance, bids were at $276,500, $284,000, $291,500, $299,000, $306,500… and their high bid was close to $300,000 then they needed to start bidding on the $284,000 mark to land on the $299,000 bid. And at the end of the bidding the increment changed to $2,500, but I do not know what triggers that change.

7. What is the buyer’s premium? It sounds like 5% extra cash the buyer has to bring to closing table. They would not be able to finance it unless the Denver auction property financed extremely high.

Summary:

1. To minimally risk their earnest money a buyer would before bidding have to have full loan approval or cash, invest $300- $700 in an inspection, and have an appraisal done, if getting a loan, for around $450. And it would be good to have a title search done and to get an HOA status letter for up to $350.

2. This Denver auction property sold for $40,000 more than any of the comparable sales and for $30,000 more than what we think it would appraise for.

3. The Buyer overpaid by around $45,000 which would have to be cash if they are getting a loan. If they don’t have the cash they lose their $9,000 of earnest money.

Denver Realtor Reviews | 3130 Race StTravis M.: “When we began our first time home buying search, it was to say the least, stressful. However, Chris gave us ALL of the knowledge we needed to be informed on what we were getting into. He was very patient with us as well. One thing that I really liked was how quick he was to respond to you. IF you emailed him, he would respond right away and a lot of times he would send the email to get the answer you were looking for and then call to follow up to better explain. We had a strict budget on what we could afford and we were able to find a great place with Chris’ help. We would highly recommend Chris to anyone, whether you are a first time home buyer or not.”

Denver Realtor Reviews | 3130 Race StTravis M. & Katie T. used one of my recommended Denver mortgage lenders, Jennifer Fairfield, for the purchase of 3130 Race St, Denver CO 80205. 3130 Race St is a half duplex in the northeast quadrant o the Whittier neighborhood. It has 2 nonconforming bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and a finished basement. It was built in 1910. The main level has beautifully exposed brick.
