Five Ways to Buy Maryland Real Estate with Nothing Down

Today, the news says the economy is a mess, people are having trouble paying their bills, and the banks are being cautious about lending.   And they say that all this trouble came from lending that was just too free and easy.

And yet, people are still buying homes with nothing down!

Tempted?   Here are five ways that are proven to work…

1.  Get a Veterans Administration (VA) loan.  This is a great solution for active duty military and former service members.  Got orders to Fort Meade, NSA, USNA, Andrews AFB, Annapolis Naval Station, the Pentagon, or another Maryland duty station?  Consider a VA loan.

2.  Get 100% financing through your credit union.  Navy Federal Credit Union, for example, offers 100% financing at competitive rates, and membership is open to many people other than service members, including DoD civilian employees, DoD contractors assigned to US government installations, and family members.  Here’s the eligibility checklist.

3.  Get help from your employer.  Many employees, of companies and the State of Maryland, are eligible for no-interest loans and employer matching funds for downpayments.  The CDA programs including “House Keys for Employees” and the “BRAC Match” programs can cover the entire downpayment.  Check with your Human Resources Department at work.

4.  Negotiate for the seller to pay closing costs.  This is very common in our market, especially for homes priced below $350,000.

5.  Get a gift from a friend or family member to help with the downpayment.

If you know someone who doesn’t yet own their own home, please share this information with them!  (If you want, feel  free to delete the part about the gift.)

We just listed this home at 1450 Central Avenue East, Edgewater, MD.

“It’s too far away!” someone said.  “Why would I buy a 4 bedroom, 2 bath home in Mayo?  I could probably find something almost as nice closer in for only $50,000 more.  After all, it’s at least 7.7 miles to the Annapolis Mall, 9.4 miles to the Annapolis harbor in the historic district, and 20 miles to route 495.  Anyway, a home in Annapolis would have higher taxes, which adds to the prestige.  And maybe I could get a foreclosure that’s been trashed.  I don’t think it’s a bargain.”

Free Seminars on Annapolis Area Real Estate – First-Time Homebuyers and Investors

Do you know someone who is thinking about buying their first home?  Or someone who is renting and would be wise to think about buying a home?  Today’s market presents some amazing opportunities, and often people who are renting aren’t aware how easy it would be to own their own home, and don’t do anything because they don’t know how, and are afraid of making a mistake.  Instead of buying their own home, they are buying real estate for their landlord!

So for potential first-time homebuyers (or those who haven’t bought in a while!), I will be offering quarterly first-time homebuyer seminars over the next year.  Please call for a schedule, if you or someone you know is interested in learning more, so that they are ready to move forward.

Similarly, many people are considering investing in real estate, and aren’t sure where to begin, or how best to add to their existing portfolio.  And there are better ways than buying a “No Money Down” seminar from an infomercial, investing with a group out of state (as someone just told me many of his neighbors are doing), or hoping to stumble across a deal in the middle of your busy workday.  If you are thinking of investing and want to get more facts, please call for the dates of our next real estate investment seminar.

p.s.  If you are planning to sell or buy property in the Spring, please call me to get the information you need to get ready.

Annapolis Real Estate Market Statistics January 2010

As expected, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) reported a decline in existing home sales at the end of 2009, as first time buyers rushed to beat the tax credit deadline and close their transactions by November 30. Although Existing home sales fell by 16.7 percent in December, sales remained brisk enough to break the 5 million unit mark, bringing total the number of existing homes sales up to 5,156,000 for all of 2009. The 2009 sales figures were almost 5 percent higher than the year before, creating first year-over-year sales gain since 2005.

Chief NAR economist Lawrence Yun remains cautiously optimistic about the national housing market. “It’s significant that home sales remain above year-ago levels, but the market is going through a period of swings driven by the tax credit,” he said. ‘We’ll likely have another surge in the spring as home buyers take advantage of the extended and expanded tax credit. By early summer the overall market should benefit from more balanced inventory, and sales are on track to rise again in 2010. However, the job market remains a concern and could dampen the housing recovery – job creation is key to a continued recovery in the second half of the year.”

Anne Arundel County figures for January 2010 are shown below.
