3 Biggest Headaches for Real Estate if Gov't Defaults

Wondering how all this political nonsense could affect the real estate industry? +Inman News offers the following theories:

1. Homebuyer sentiment could fall.
2. Getting a mortgage could be even more difficult. "The government shutdown has already hindered mortgage lenders' ability to get records they need to verify borrower income from the IRS..."
3. Layoffs / joblessness could reduce the buyer pool.

Sigh. Come on, people.

5 Tips for Buying a Short Sale Property

Short sales - they're still out there! And while short sales can be cheaper than traditional sales, a short sale transaction isn't always a piece of cake. If you're interested in snapping up a short sale to save some cash, keep the following 5 tips in mind:

1. Work with an agent who UNDERSTANDS short sales.
2. Get preapproved.
3. Plan on waiting.
4. Keep your paperwork organized.
5. Understand that the home is probably sold "as-is".

Introduction

I love writing and real estate, so my ideal job would combine the two. Enter perfection: I'm a real estate writer!

I'm a former real estate broker / property manager, and am currently a writer for the Veterans United Network. You can check out my work at the Veterans United Realty blog or the Future Military Homeowners blog.

Veterans United Home Loans is owned and managed by the best. I KNOW that every single VUHL employee loves working for such a philanthropic, people-centered business.

I can rock "Fight Tiger" on the piccolo. I can't beat my 2 year-old daughter in a staring contest.
