LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

MIKE TURNER

ATTENTION EAGLE HOMEOWNERS

Dear Eagle Homeowner, You may have noticed that home prices in the area have been improving. For the first time in 6 years many Eagle homeowners now have some equity in their homes! If you have any desire to tap into that equity, I want you to be aware of a significant change to the housing market that is coming. A big enough change, that it might be a wise decision to consider selling your home in the next few months.

WHY YOU MIGHT WANT TO SELL NOW. 1) Interest rates are increasing Which means homes are becoming a lot more expensive to buy. This is a big deal, as it impacts interested buyers in your home and YOU if you plan to purchase anything else after you sell your home. All signs are signaling that rates will keep increasing.

2) Plateauing Home Prices. The housing market in the Boise area has improved dramatically in the last 18 months, home prices for the county have increased well over 30% in this time. However, now that the market has corrected, due to the reduction of foreclosures on the market (foreclosures are down 95%), home prices have started to level off, and will likely plateau or bounce up and down in small increments for quite some time, which means there may not be any advantage in waiting to sell your home.

3) Improving your lifestyle. One of the top reasons for moving is to improve your lifestyle. Whether it’s to get into a new school district for the kiddos, getting closer to the recreational activities you love, buying some land to stretch your legs, or downsizing to travel more, we all have wants that we talk about doing someday. Well, life is short, so if improving home prices gives you that opportunity to make a great improvement to

your life, you may want to consider it. Of experience to get the job done for you. But course if you love everything about your that is not even the best part. home and have no desire to sell, then you are already ahead of the game. Congrats. SPECIAL OFFER FOR YOU! –

The Big News

A lender I know recently told me how there is about to be a MASSIVE CHANGE in the timeline to get financing to buy a home AFTER you have a Short Sale, Foreclosure or a Bankruptcy. In the past we borrowers had to wait 3-7 years to get new financing after defaulting on a home loan. Now that timeline is about to be shortened down to 12 MONTHS! This new timeline will allow a whole sector of the market who has been forced to rent a home these past few years to be eligible to get a home loan, further fueling the housing market. This announcement was shocking to hear, since all we have seen from the lending market these past five years is further tightening. The shortened timeline to acquire financing after a foreclosure or bankruptcy is not without a condition however. The condition is that this only applies to borrowers who actually had a financial hardship that lead to the foreclosure, short sale, or bankruptcy. You need to prove that prior to the default your income dropped by at least 20% for 6 months or more. Therefore, if you short sold a home because it lost so much value but not because you couldn’t make the mortgage payments then you have to wait along the standard timeline (for most people it’s 3-4 years). There are many questions to be answered with these new guidelines, such as does a medical hardship or divorce constitute a financial hardship? For those answers I will be leaning to the lender who first told me about this new program and who you should call to get more details about this major change in home loan financing: Call Paul Anderson with Prospect Mortgage: 208-794-2830 Paul.Anderson@Prospectmtg.com NMLS #182954 “Paul Anderson is a very knowledgeable lender who works very hard for his clients. I highly recommend clients to call Paul when they need to get a home loan or to refinance. Paul just knows his stuff. “ - Mike Turner
