Why Price Shouldn’t Be the Only Driver in the Search for Your First Home
Buying your first house? You’re likely driven mainly by budget, but there are some other important considerations you may not have thought of that can help you find the perfect place. Not only can these tips help you find a home that really suits your lifestyle, but also helps you afford to live there comfortably.

Can you afford to heat and cool it?

You may only be thinking of home size in terms of the number of rooms or square footage you want. But, in many cases, a larger home costs more to maintain. More space means more space to heat and cool. Although, a home that’s newer or that has updated systems can help defray costs because it’s more efficient. Your real estate agent may be able to get an idea of the monthly utility costs so you can have this information up front.

Who's going to mow the lawn?

If you’ve never had your own lawn or garden, you may not know if you have a green thumb or if you’ll regard the time it takes to care for it as a pleasure or a bummer. Then again, if you’re already dreading the idea of having to spend a couple hours out there each week, perhaps a single-family home isn’t for you. Yeah, you could pay someone else to do it, but you’re already stretching to buy your own place, right? Perhaps the lower-maintenance lifestyle offered by a condo or town-home is the best option for you.

What’s good for resale?

Are you thinking about how easy it will be to sell your home when you’re just about to buy it? Maybe not, but, the truth it it’s always a good idea to think like a seller when buying. Chances are, this starter home won’t be your forever home, and the same questions you have about the floor-plan or location are likely the questions would-be buyers will be asking when you go to sell.
As it relates to the floor-plan, it’s a good idea to think beyond what you think you might want and consider what’s popular in the area. If homes with downstairs master suites sell especially well and you haven’t considered that plan, this info may make you rethink your strategy.

Schools In Oceanside

Dying to walk your kids to and from school every day? That’s the dream for many a parent. But what you might not be envisioning is being able to watch—and hear—every kid in the school walk by twice a day, every day. What seems like a super-convenient location right on the walking path to the elementary school may just turn out to be too much of a good thing if it impacts your privacy and peace of mind.

Did anything weird happen there?

Yes, the seller will be required to disclose physical defects and also defects that create the potential for stigmatization. What you’re talking about is the issue of ‘psychological damage’ to a property, to be distinguished from ‘physical damage,’ In some cases, the psychological damage is so great—such as after a violent or highly publicized murder or suicide, or widespread reports of haunting—that the house is considered ‘stigmatized’ and therefore less valuable. In most states, the owner would indeed be expected to disclose a defect causing the house to be stigmatized, so that buyers could adjust their expectations and purchase price accordingly.”
A natural death in the home, however, is not generally something that needs to be disclosed. If that’s the type of thing that could keep you from wanting to live there you, just ask. “If a prospective home buyer asks you outright about whether anyone has died in the home, you cannot lie (unless you want to risk being later sued for fraud),” they said.

Ready For Staging: 4 Repairs You Need Before Selling Your Home 
Selling your home is a complex process that may take weeks to complete. This is partially because your house may need to be updated or renovated before it can go on the market. What are some of the most crucial fixes that you should make before listing your property?
Update the Exterior
The first thing that you will want to do is make sure that the home's exterior is in good condition. This may involve landscaping work such as removing trees or shrubs that are dead or dying. It may also involve inspecting the roof, siding or other exterior components that may need to be repaired or updated to make the house easier to sell. At the very least, a fresh coat of paint should be applied before putting the house on the open market.
Check the Air Conditioning
If you have a central air conditioning unit in your home, make sure that it works properly. This means that it should start easily and produce an even amount of cool air throughout the house.
Ideally, you will have it inspected once a year by someone like Doctor Fix-It. However, inspecting it and making repairs prior to selling your home should be considered mandatory. It may also be a good idea to check the furnace and clean the ducts before you show the home to buyers.
Make Sure the Floors Are Adequate
Whether your home has wood floors or carpet, make sure that they are in good condition. If necessary, wax and clean the wood or put down new carpet in areas where it may be frayed or dirty. If you are going to replace your carpet, make sure that it is the same color and style throughout a given space.
Check the Plumbing and Electrical Systems
Buyers aren't going to want to put an offer on a home that has poor water pressure. They are also unlikely to want to make an offer on a home that has dangerous electrical wiring. If the fixes to either system are relatively minor, you can do them yourself. However, it may also be a good idea to call a professional to make sure that the job is done safely.
Selling your home can be a great way to help you downsize or lock in profits. However, if the process is not done right, it could reduce the sale price of the home or result in the home staying on the market longer than you anticipated that it would.

The 2018 VA Home Loan limit increased to $649,750 
in 2018 in San Diego Counties. 
The maximum conforming VA loan limits for 
mortgages acquired by Fannie Mae and
Freddie Mac are determined by the 

The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA).
2018 VA Loan limits apply to all loans closed January 1, 2018 through December 31, 2018.
These limits do apply to most military borrowers. These increased VA loan limits are intended to allow
Military borrowers in more expensive loan markets to borrow more without having to put any money down. 

In most markets the VA loan limit is $453,100.

VA Home Loan Myths

There are many VA home loan myths out there that deter people from fulfilling their dream to own a home. 
Within the VA Loan field there tends to be multiple myths concerning when and who can be eligible for a VA Loan. Do not allow these typical misconceptions to deter you from searching into it and hopefully the data given here will assist you in securing a loan for your house. Here are a few myths explained.

Myth 1: I do not have a full 2 years of service; therefore, I am not qualified.
This isn’t necessarily the whole truth across the board. As a general rule for eligibility, the Veteran handbook reports that a veteran is qualified for VA housing loan benefits if she or he served on active duty within the Coast Guard, Marine Corps,
Air Force, Navy, or Army was discharged underneath conditions other than dishonorable following either: ninety days or more, any portion of which happened within wartime.
181 continual days or above (Peacetime).
Two-Year Requirement: A longer length of service requirement
has to be met by veterans who:
Enlisted (then service began) following September 7th, 1980
Was an officer, plus service started following October 16th, 1981
Those veterans have to have either completed:
Twenty-four continual months or beyond
The complete span for which ordered to active duty, yet not less than ninety days (any portion within wartime) or 

181 continual days (peacetime).
 Myth 2: I only can utilize my VA benefit for my initial house.
There are multiple situations where you might reuse your VA entitlement to secure a housing loan, according to VA guidelines:
Entitlement that was previously utilized in conjunction with a VA housing loan might be restored underneath specific circumstances. 

When restored, it could be utilized again for additional VA Loans.
Restoration of previously utilized entitlement is probable if:
The property that secured the VA guaranteed loan was sold, 
and the loan was paid in full.
A qualified veteran-transferee agreed to assume the outstanding balance upon the VA loan and substitute her or his entitlement for the same quantity initially utilized upon the loan.
The assuming veteran has to additionally meet occupancy, credit and income requirements of the law.
The previous VA loan was paid in full and a veteran has made application for the loan to be secured by the exact same property that secured 
the previous VA loan.
The previous VA loan was paid in full, yet the veteran hasn’t disposed of the property that secured the loan.
Myth 3: I have a foreclosure or bankruptcy upon my credit history,

and thus am not qualified for a VA loan.

A bankruptcy within an applicant’s (or a spouse’s) credit history doesn’t in itself disqualify a loan, according to VA guidelines. 
A good credit history especially after the bankruptcy and length of time since the bankruptcy can be contributing positive 
factors towards still qualifying.

Getting a divorce can be a stressful event, add on top of that the need to sell a family home as part of the process and the stress can get even higher. You may wish to sell your home in order to not be reminded of the past or you may need to sell it since you can no longer afford the home on one income and don’t want to end up in a house poor situation. In order to get your home sold you need to proceed in unemotional manner since in the long run you will be better off without a home that costs you more than you can afford or one that leaves you with bad memories.

Work With A Pierview Properties Agent When Trying To Sell A Home During Divorce

By working with a PVP Agent, you have a professional on your side whose job it is to help you sell your home. Your Realtor should be a neutral party who takes no sides between you and your spouse. If you have a friend whom you are considering hiring to sell your home you may want to think again. As a friend do you want that agent to get dragged into the middle of your battle with your spouse? That agent maybe be the friend of one spouse in particular and as a result unintentionally side with that one spouse due to friendship which could end up being a mistake when it comes down to advising on important decisions as related to your home sale. By having a neutral Realtor help you in selling your home you ensure none of your friends get dragged into a messy relationship issues that will only serve to bog down the process of selling your home.

Your Pierview Properties Agent will help insulate you from many questions that buyers may ask and which can result in offers that are low due to the idea that the divorcing sellers are desperate. Divorce can bring out the worst in many to the point they want to be done with the process and get on with their lives, buyers who may happen to know the home is being sold by a soon to be divorced couple may use that information to their advantage by offering less than they normally would. If buyers don’t know the owners are selling their home due to divorce they are more likely to come forward with an offer that is based on the current value of the home rather than an offer based on perceived desperation of the sellers to get out. By hiring a Realtor you ensure that buyers are only directing questions to your Realtor and that you can work on other more pressing matters without distraction.

Setting The Stage For Your Home Sale

In order to realize the best price for your home it is still in your best interest to prepare and stage your home as best as you can. Selling a home as-is with minimal effort put into cleaning, de-cluttering, depersonalizing and rearranging furniture to make your home look more open will result in your home not getting sold if the price is set higher than it should be. Eventually your home being sold as-is will get sold when the price drops enough to entice a buyer to make an offer. The end result is you are walking away from extra money that could be going into your pocket versus a buyer getting a great deal.

You can position your home to get a better offer by preparing it prior to putting it up for sale as best as you can. Even if you don’t have the budget to hire someone to prepare your home you can prepare the home yourself by depersonalizing and de-cluttering as best as you can. Remove and store any collections, personal photos and other items of a personal nature that only serve to distract buyers from seeing the true view of the home. A home that is more presentable and better prepared will attract more buyers and in turn get a better offer at a better price.

Dealing With An Uncooperative Spouse When Selling A Home During Divorce

While it would be best if you are able to cooperate with your soon to be ex-spouse and put the home up for sale, sometimes bad emotions get combined with bad intentions and the process of selling your home gets hurt in the process. This is more likely to happen when both spouses don’t necessarily agree on selling the home and the home sale is being forced as part of the divorce settlement. One spouse may want to stay in the home, yet the other spouse wants the home sold. The spouse wanting the home sold is thinking about the money tied up in the home and the need to get their name off of the mortgage. The easiest and cleanest way to get a name of a mortgage is to sell a home and payoff the mortgage. It is possible for one spouse to transfer the mortgage entirely into their name through a refinance or some other means but in order to do this they still must meet the lending and credit requirements of the mortgage company as a single person.

In order to minimize direct spousal involvement, flaring tempers and attempts at sabotage of the home sale have your divorce attorneys work together toward getting the house sold. Your divorce attorneys should be directing and guiding the real estate agent in the selling of the home and by keeping both spouses separate from the process so there is less chance of someone doing something to harm the sale. While one party may want the home or may think that preventing the home sale will help them get a win in the battle in the end both parties may lose if the one who wants the home sold decides to stop paying the mortgage.
Regardless of whom a divorce judge orders to pay the mortgage both spouses names are likely on the mortgage and the mortgage lender can seek payment from any of the people named on the mortgage.

It will be up to the individual spouse to later go and sue the other spouse to recover any money they may owe under the divorce settlement.
If one spouse is completely uncooperative and their attorney is unable to provide much help in getting the home sold then other spouse is going to have to request the divorce court order the other side to cooperate. While the process of getting a divorce court to compel a home sale is not a quick one it can kill a deal to sell the home if the buyers see signs that the home they want may fall through due to a bitter divorce and they in turn decide not to buy or want to cancel the deal. If one spouse is uncooperative from the start it is best to have the divorce court rule on the home sale prior to putting it on the market so there are fewer chances of delay.

Bottom Line
A divorce in and of itself can be a stressful event that consumes up both your time and money until the marriage is ended. Add to that divorce and selling your home and the complexity goes up, especially if there is a disagreement as to whether to sell the home or not. By working with your divorce attorney and a neutral Realtor at PIERVIEW PROPERTIES REAL ESTATE you can separate yourself from the process and avoid getting tangled up in something that may delay or kill the sale.

Why are Single Women Over 55 Buying Homes?

All we've heard about in the real estate market for the last several years is Millennials, with a sprinkle of Baby Boomers thrown in. But here's who we should be talking about: Women. Older women, to be exact.
New data from the U.S. Census that was analyzed by Economist Ralph McLaughlin "suggests single woman over 55 are the fastest-growing demographic of home buyers," said Builder Magazine. That doesn't mean they comprise the predominant buyer group; that goes to married couples, at 65 percent. But the numbers are interesting, nonetheless, especially when you consider that home purchases by single women last year measured 18 percent compared to only seven percent by their single male counterparts.
The National Association of Realtors reports that since the mid-1990's, single women have purchased homes at nearly twice the rate of single men. Last year, single female homeowners made up 18 percent of household composition in the association's Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, compared to 10 percent for single men."
The new U.S. Census Current Population Survey, which covered 60,000 households, showed that "the share of home purchases by single women in 2017 - including never - married individuals, widows and divorcees — hit 22.8 percent, the highest on record," said the Washington Post.
Perhaps most surprising is who comprises the largest percentage of single female buyers according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR) Generational Trends Report: 72 and older.
When it comes to real estate, Gramma's got it going on.
So what's behind the trend? A number of things.
They're downsizing. Women live longer than men, statistically, so many of these home purchases could be driven by the death of a spouse and/or the desire to trade a pricey and/or too large place for something better suited for one person. The study did not take into account how many of these buyers were already homeowners with a residence to sell.
Investment potential. Primarily, older women are choosing to invest in real estate.
Longer lifespans mean more confidence in longevity. A couple of generations back, it would have been unheard of for a single woman to buy a home by herself, let alone at the age of 72. The dream of so many of our grandparents was to pay off their home and be free and clear. Entering into a 15- or 30-year mortgage at an age when many are already retired is no longer a deterrent for these trailblazing women.
They want stability. They want to have control over their monthly expenses.They're going to be where their children or friends are. They're not whimsical at that age."
They're looking for a multi-generational living situation. This is a trend that's been on the rise for many years, and the numbers don't lie. According to the Census, one in five home buyers between the ages of 53 and 62 purchased a multi-generational home.
Rents are Priceyand still rising in many areas. The data shows that 23 percent "of single women cited rising rents as a ‘trigger' motivation behind a home purchase,"  said the Washington Post. This is far beyond the average for all buyer groups, which is 16 percent.

 The Seller's Disclosure - Not To Be Feared

State and federal laws are strict in requiring sellers to tell what they know about the condition of their homes that isn't obvious or discernible to potential buyers. Buyers can't see behind walls or under houses, so they rely on truthful information from the seller about the operations, appliances and systems of the home.
When you sell your home, your PIERVIEW PROPERTIES Real Estate Agent will present you with a federal and/or state-mandated disclosure form called a Real Estate Disclosure Statement, Property Condition Disclosure, or Condition Report. You're required to disclose the presence of lead paint, radon, asbestos and other toxic products if you know your home has them.
While the forms may ask you to disclose whether or not you know there is lead paint or radon present, you aren't required to do tests to determine the presence of toxic chemicals. But your buyer's lender can always require proof of tests and/or remediation for any problem that has been disclosed, such as fire and water damage.
It's important to answer every question as truthfully as you can. You must answer the questions yourself - your real estate professional can not fill out the disclosure for you, but he or she can help you understand what's being asked of you. If you're in doubt about what to disclose, such as a repair, it's best to err on the side of too much information than not enough.
While disclosure forms allow you to check the "I don't know" box, you should only do so if you truly don't know the condition of that item. If you answer that you don't know the condition of an appliance you use daily, such as a sink or bathtub, you might raise suspicions in the buyer.
The best way to feel confident about the condition of your home is to have it inspected by a licensed professional home inspector. Your PVP real estate professional can recommend someone or provide you with a list. For a few hundred dollars and a few hours of your time, you'll either find that your home is market-ready, or the inspector will bring a problem to your attention that you can fix.
When you disclose a problem to the buyer that has previously been fixed, be sure to provide a copy of work orders, receipts and invoices. If the problem hasn't been fixed, expect the buyer to either ask you to fix it, or to offer a little less for the home.
Remember, the more that's left unrepaired, the more the buyer will discount the offer, if he makes one at all. Homes in the best condition sell the best.
The seller's disclosure is designed to do one thing -- hold you and your real estate agent harmless if you've disclosed the truth about your property. You don't want to give the buyer any room for complaint or litigation after the closing.
To get an idea of the types of questions you'll be asked in a disclosure, you can make an appointment with a PIERVIEW PROPERTIES Agent and He/She will show you how this form is filed out correctly, and any questions you may have.
Don't be afraid of the seller's disclosure. It's not meant to be a deal-killer, but a deal-maker. Many agents provide a copy of the disclosure to interested buyers, so they can get an idea of the home's condition before they make an offer or have an inspection.

The Best Time to Sell Your House, 

Based on Real Estate Market Data

It’s summertime and you’ve been thinking about selling the house. The weather is great which makes it easy to show your home, and the kids are out of school to help you pack everything up (or just eat ice cream and watch you do it).
If you’re wondering the best time to sell your house and want to take advantage of the current sellers market, then we’ve got the answers for you below.

When to List to Get the Best Price and Sell the Fastest

Every day real estate surges forward with a new abundance of real estate tech tools. These tools are the building blocks of the future of real estate and help to predict the temperature of the market.
We’ve used one of these tools to give you the best time to sell your house based on cold, hard numbers.
If you need to put your home on the market now, you’re in luck. Nationwide housing market data shows August as the best time to list a house in order to get the highest sale price. August was the best time to list overall from 2014 - 2017. Real estate transactions often take a few months to close, which means that homes listed in August will most likely close in November. Homes that closed in November over 2014 - 2017 sold for 4.04% higher than the national average.
If you want your home to sell quickly, aim for a close date this month or a close date in August. Overall from 2014 - 2017, homes that closed in July and August closed 7 days faster than the National average.
You can also predict the best time to sell your house in your local market by searching your city and state in this tool and state in this tool. For example, the best time to sell a house in Las Vegas is the Summer, aiming for a Fall close date.

Current State of the Market: Sellers Hold the Cards

If getting out while it is good is your goal, then it may be in your best interest to sell your house now. Currently the nation is in a sellers market, which means that the demand for homes exceeds the number of homes on the market. Basically, there are more buyers in need of homes than there are people selling.
The problem is that some people are predicting a cooling of the real estate market in 2018. According to USA Today, home buying may be less accessible in 2018 because of higher interest rates and rising home prices. The National Association of Realtors predicts interest rates around 4.5-4.6% for this year.
If you need to sell, it might be best to list the home now for fear of the market leveling off and a big loss of buyers in 2018.
