The Top 5 Tips to Get Yourself a Mortgage in 2014

1.  Document everything-keep all of your tax records, and be prepared to explain your finances thoroughly. 

2.  Shop around-Shop around for your loan, and see who is offering the best deal.

3.  Consider more than you credit-Lenders are also concerned with your debt-to-income ratio as well, so it’s important you are looking for homes that won’t put a strain on your budget

4.  Consider traditional mortgages first-So, if you can get approved for a traditional mortgage, it’s typically the better way to go.

5.  Don’t jump the gun -f buying was already in your plans, then you may want to try and lock in a rate soon. However, if you are on the fence about buying a new home, don’t rush out and do it just because the rates may rise.

Never researched the idea but it's actually quite interesting. Taking in consideration the fact that trends like feng shui are becoming more and more popular, it could actually have some real impact.

How Do You Find A Home That's Really YOU?

In a competitive sellers' market, it can be hard for a buyer to find their dream home, but at least you know what you're looking for, right?
 
Not necessarily!
 
You'd be surprised how many buyers think they have an idea of what type of home they'd like to purchase, only to find out later that they didn't take many important factors into consideration when making their decision.
 
So, how can you avoid making the same mistake? Read on!

How Do You Win at a House Auction?

For whatever the reason a home is being auctioned off, it may be worth your while to check these auctions out if you are in the market for a house.

In fact, you might get a great deal out of it! If the home being auctioned off is owned by a bank, it's illegal for them to make a profit on it. Therefore, these homes are auctioned off far below market value.

What Does Your Paint Color Say About You?

The time had come to switch things up a bit, so you went to the home improvement store, purchased the shade you wanted, and painted your home.

Colors can impact us both emotionally and physically, so what exactly does the paint color you selected say about you?

#3 is definitely important, +RealtyPin. We receive many questions about financing from people who are simply not ready but want to jump into a mortgage nonetheless. As a result, they have very high interest rates, often due to #1 not being in order. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you so much much appreciated. +Inlanta Mortgage its been a busy season for us at realtypin but now we are back we have missed you too thanks for standing in the gap. 

+Rosemary Rugnetta I agree with you;its good to get help from a different lender to lock in low rates if you can. Moving out and renting out is also a perfect idea :-)

The Top 5 Selling Tips to Make Buyers Love You

If you want to make potential buyers fall head over heels in love with your home, all you have to do is follow these 5 tips:

1.  Don’t be there
The best way for a potential buyer to love you and your home is to stay out of the house during their showing.

2.  Be flexible
Yes, it’s a pain to have to find a place to go during showings – especially if a buyer wants to swing by first thing in the morning or during dinner – but you severely limit yourself when you set hours allowed for showings.

3.  Keep it clean
Not only will a potential buyer judge you for not keeping your home clean, they may be turned off so much that they want nothing to do with your home altogether!

4.  Be neutral
A buyer needs to be able to imagine himself in your house, and it’s difficult for him to do that if the walls are too bright or if the décor is too wild.

5.  Provide a clean canvas
Not only should you paint your walls in neutral colors, but you need to take out anything personal in your home. Essentially, your home should look like builder’s model – or, the home version of a clean canvas.
