HUD Home Buyer Webinar

Webinar Education

This week on December 19th there will be a HUD Homebuyer webinar hosted by Nancy Braun, Owner of Showcase Realty, perfect for homebuyers and investors. In this Webinar we will discuss who can purchase HUD homes and when. Myth battles fact in common misconceptions about HUD homes.

Did you know?

-HUD does not provide direct financing to buyers of HUD Homes.

-Almost anyone can buy a HUD home.

– You can purchase a HUD home at a 50% discount from the original list price if you meet certain qualifications.

-You can purchase a home with just $100 down!

We will also be discussing different investment strategies and discuss a very common “Get Rich Quick” strategy made popular by TV shows.  We will also advise you on what investment properties to avoid and the realities of being an investor. You will be a LANDLORD at some point (if you want a steady income property).

Much more will be discussed at the FREE HUD Home Buyers Webinar! Attend it on Thursday December 19th at 2-3 PM! You will also receive a FREE HUD Tool Kit after the Webinar so don’t hesitate to register for the event today!  https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/8895772902378965762

ATTN Buyers: Get LIVE Advice on the Homebuying Process from our Experts!

All Signs Point Toward Improving Housing Market

In 2012, the housing market is continuing to improve as the U.S. economy moves forward on its slow but steady recovery. 

Demand in many areas and price points are now greater than supply and there has been upward pressure on home prices! In fact, there is so much good news to share that we are having a FREE MEETING on March 26th from 6:00 – 7:30 PM at our NEW! Showcase Realty Charlotte location to present it all!

These are just a few of the topics we’ll cover:

  • Housing market forecast for Charlotte, North Carolina, surrounding areas, and the United States 
  • How to buy a home for as little as 3% DOWN
  • Short sale update on how the process works and affects your credit score 
  • What is a HUD home and how you can go about purchasing one, along with awesome programs that benefit buyers! 
  • How to buy an investment property and simplifying the process with the right person guiding you!  
  • And MORE!!! 

All Homes 66% Off!

I’ll bet you’d stop if you saw this sign at a builder’s subdivision!  Believe it or not, the cost of a home really is 66% off! With low prices and low interest rates the same home bought in 2005 is three times as affordable today than they were in 2005!  The following example should help you understand just how good the deals are right now. 

If you borrowed $200,000 to buy a home in 2005 and got a loan with a 6% interest rate, the interest would cost $12,000 per year or $1,000 per month.

That same home today can probably be purchased for about half its 2005 value, so your loan would be $100,000. The interest rate wouldn’t be 6%, it would only be 4% so you would spend only $4,000 per year or $333 per month!  One-third the payment FOR THE SAME HOUSE!!!

Worried prices are still falling?  Wouldn’t it be nice to know which areas are still falling in value and which are increasing? I have statistical evidence of what is happening in every price range, property type, and neighborhood in and around Charlotte.

This information will empower you to make smart decisions whether you’re buying or selling. If you’ve been thinking about moving up, down, or sideways, there is no better time. Hurry before the market heats up when school lets out!
