New Video Just Released on How to Determine Property Value


Campbell, NY (PRWEB) June 06, 2013

The ultimate goal of any investor is to cash a paycheck. In order to cash a paycheck, investors must be able to learn how to determine property value. This is a critical piece all investors must be familiar with and know how to do or else it will eat up profits very quickly and waste a lot of time because the numbers don’t pencil.

Cameron explains in the video that the goal is to determine what the property is worth if it was in great condition. He calls this ARV. The After Repaired Value. So when investors find a property that needs a lot of work, they need to be able to determine the value of this home if it was in repaired condition.

Cameron shares several ways on how this is done in the video. First, investors can get an agent to do a CMA or also known as a Comparative Market Analysis. This is where a real estate agent will pull a list of comparable properties that are similar to the subject property in order to determine property value or at least find out what these “comparable” properties sold for.

In order to determine property value, Cameron says, “the best way is to not only look at properties that have sold in the past 3-6 months but also look at the active listings as well.” It would be important information to know if a similar home is actively listed but has been on the market for 6 months. All this information helps the investor determine the property value.

He also talks about the MLS as a great tool for determining property value. It provides information to agents and appraisers so they can determine home values fairly accurately. They are able to see active listings as well as properties that have sold.

Title companies also provide “property profiles” where they can pull comps and tax roll data because they too have access to this information. There are some online free web sites like Zillow that provide information on what the home is worth. Although this is a great tool, Cameron says, “it’s not always accurate. I’ll always make a quick call to an agent just to verify my numbers and get a second opinion.”

Mortgage Refinance Rates Just Spotted at 3.50% (3.53 APR) for 30 Year Fixed Home Loan On Consumer Daily


Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) August 24, 2012

Lenders and banks dont necessarily advertise their best rates widely, so consumers need to take the initiative to find and compare interest rates. Consumer Daily provides access to a list of mortgage rates using two large databases of lenders, regardless of a consumers personal situation, that anyone can browse in a user-friendly fashion. Homeowners simply need to answer four questions to view precise rates from numerous lenders and banks online at:

http://www.consumerdaily.org/mortgage/

For example, recent rates available via Consumer Dailys search tool ranged from 3.4% to 3.8% for a 30 year fixed rate mortgage. On a $ 300,000 home, that is approximately $ 1500 per month in mortgage payments. While these rates are certainly higher than the 15 year fixed rate, the monthly payment for a 15 year fixed rate mortgage is over $ 500 more per month compared to the 30 year fixed rate mortgage. For some people, that extra $ 500 would be unaffordable, making the 30 year option a much more attractive proposition.

Current homeowners can benefit from a 30 year mortgage rate as well. Depending on the amount of equity the homeowner currently possesses, he or she may qualify for refinancing. By changing their current mortgage to a 30 year mortgage, homeowners can lower their monthly payment and free up cash for other investments or debt payments.

By imputing their zipcode, the value of their home, the current amount owed and the mortgage type into the Consumer Daily portal, homeowners can view current available rates for refinancing. Since Consumer Daily uses two large databases of lenders and banks, consumers are much more likely to find and compare the best rates.

Home ownership can seem out of reach for many people. Taking a 30 year mortgage makes it a little more affordable and realistic by letting purchasers pay back their loan in smaller amounts over a longer time frame. It also provides benefits to current homeowners who are looking to refinance and reduce their monthly payments. To get the most benefit, consumers need to carefully consider the interest rate on their loan using by comparing rates using a service such as Consumer Daily’s extensive list of mortgage rates.
