Buying a Fresno Home After a Short Sale

When Will I Be Able to Buy A Home After a Short Sale?

Short Sale Help

Short Sale Help

How soon can I buy a home after a Short Sale? This is one of the many questions that Fresno home owners ask us before they decide to move forward with a short sale on their Fresno Ca home.  Many times it is one of the last obstacles to  moving forward with a short sale.  In one case a family waited and debated over a year and a half whether to proceed with Short Selling their Fresno home, which ultimately delayed their buying options a year and half longer then needed.  The sooner you can move beyond your fears and hesitations and get the information you need, the sooner you will be able and ready to buy again when your credit is repaired.

How soon can I buy a house after a short sale? 2 years or sooner! This will vary from borrower to borrower and from lender to lender but the avg recovery time to purchase again seems to be roughly 2 years after a short sale.

How soon can I buy a house after a foreclosure? 5-7 years depending on circumstances and the original lender and loan. It is VERY IMPORTANT to speak with an attorney as well as an experienced lender before making any decisions about a short sale or foreclosure.

In some cases (not all) buyer’s have worked with a credit repair organization to move the process along further and faster.  This may or may not be the best option for you and your family. We would encourage you to take your time, save and prepare yourself for the right buying opportunity. Get the information you need with our FREE Short Sale info packet and consultation so you can make an informed decision.

We would love the opportunity to chat with you about your unique situation and about your buying options after a short sale.  Give us a call at 559.325.4043 or contact us through the form below and we will be in touch.

New Homes in Fresno Ca

New Homes for Sale in Fresno Ca

New Homes in Fresno

New Homes in Fresno

Many home buyers I run into these days are looking for new homes in Fresno as opposed to older, less energy efficient homes.  Even homes that were built in the late 90′s / early 2000′s do not compare to today’s standards of efficiency.  Not only is this an important for the local environment, but also has the potential to save the homeowner thousands of dollars over the years. 

Fresno home builders are on the cutting edge of smart, clean, green design and building for California.  According to a recent article in Business Week, the cost of new homes will rise in Ca over the next few years.  Although the short term costs of building these homes will go up, the overall benefit of buying a new home in Fresno will far out weigh it’s cost (and impact on the environment).

For those of you who are unwilling to compromise on area or the charm of an older home, we suggest buying a home at discount so you are able to invest in features like solar and other energy efficient upgrades.  It is possible these days to not sacrifice charm and location for efficiency – you will just have to work a little harder and find the right agent to help.

If you are looking for a new home in Fresno Ca, we can help!  For a FREE list of all new homes in Fresno, complete the form below and we will send you a list immediately.  To see who we recommend and to get more information about new home builders in Fresno visit our post on the Top New Home Builders in Fresno.

Real Estate in Fresno

Real Estate in Fresno: Market Info

Real Estate in Fresno

Real Estate in Fresno

So what is the condition of real estate in Fresno these days?  Great question!  With so much happening in the Fresno and Clovis area as well as the Central Valley we have much to be excited about.  The distraction of elections will soon be over, which will mean our local leadership can get back to important matters at hand, like… job creation, education, safety and the overall health and well being of our city.  All of these issues will have a tremendous impact on our local housing recovery and the future of Fresno.  As our local economy heals we can expect good things for our future.

So what can we expect for real estate in Fresno for the next year?

  • Fresno Home Buyers: You can expect more of the same.  It is still a great time and opportunity to buy real estate in Fresno.  Interest rates will remain low, as they have for the last 3 years.  Local affordability is still relatively strong.  It is really competitive out there right now so finding the right help will make all the difference in the world between buying the home of your dreams and missing out.
  • Fresno Home Owners: The story is a little different for you home owners.  Much of what you can expect is for Fresno short sales to become the norm.  This means that, due to hardship, many of your neighbors will make the tough decision to sell their Fresno home via a short sale and move on.  For those owners that still have equity in their home it will make it harder and harder to compete and you may need to stay a little longer in your home to see any return of appreciation/value.  Click here for a FREE estimate of your Fresno home’s value.

If you are interested in buying a home in Fresno and would like a FREE list of houses for sale in Fresno Ca, simply fill in the form below and well will send you a list right to your inbox.  If you know exactly what you are looking for and would like us to set up a search call (559.325.4043) or email Matt Heinricy ([email protected]) today to get started.

3 Tips for finding Houses for Sale in Fresno

Houses for Sale in Fresno Ca

Houses for Sale in Fresno Ca

Houses for Sale in Fresno Ca

Finding the right Fresno Ca house for sale for your family is no easy task.  Here are a few quick tips to get you started and headed in the right direction.

3 Tips for finding Houses for Sale in Fresno Ca

1. Price Range: First and foremost you will have to take some time to figure out what you can afford.  It is very important to set a budget and try to stick to it.  Most Fresno home buyers I work with very quickly find out that the house they love and want the most is usually 10-15% over their stated budget amount/price range.  You will need to start by speaking with a LOCAL (yes I put local in all CAPS!) lender to get the best direction on your buying power.

2. Location: Determine the Fresno Ca location(s) that best fit your season of life and current needs.  You may also want to consider if the house in Fresno Ca that you will be buying is a 2, 5 or 10 year plus house.  This helps people determine what they will not only need today but for years to come. Drive around some Fresno neighborhoods to get a feel for what areas you like and then narrow the list down to 2, no more then 3 areas.  If you need help in pinning down a few areas, let us know, we can help.

3. Go House Hunting: This is the fun part!  Once you have determined what you can afford and where you would like to live… start looking at Fresno Ca houses for sale.  This will involve finding a local Fresno Realtor you can trust to help you find the best Fresno houses for sale.  A Fresno real estate expert will be able to help you save time and money by narrowing your search and negotiating the best deal possible.  If your realtor isn’t excited to show you homes – get a new one!  Remember this is a big decision, have fun and enjoy the process.

Happy Fresno House Hunting!
