Selling your home can be a tedious and overwhelming process. It may be part of the reason you hold onto the real estate for far longer than necessary when you can sell and get the monetary value for your possessions.

The overwhelming stress and concern attached to selling your home are sometimes triggered by the fear of getting the right price for your possessions, coupled with the emotional attachment you have with the property. But as much as these lingering concerns are enough to hold you back from selling, there are many reasons why selling your home is the better option.

The Simple Reason

Selling the property is a way of making money and moving past the obstacle that is overwhelming you. When you sell your possessions, you get to recoup the money you may have lost.

Avoid Future Maintenance Costs

Maintaining a property can be stressful, demanding, and financially draining. Day-to-day maintenance, major repair items, and even property taxes can be a financial burden if you aren’t prepared.

Sell Quickly and Easily with Us

One of the best ways to get your property sold quickly, easily, and without stress, and at the same time making enough money from your sales, is to get a good real estate agent. Especially one that is interested in buying your property outright versus placing it on the market and waiting for a buyer.

Although there are so many real estate agents in town who are more concerned with your property, we care for you and want to help alleviate your burden. Not only are we going to help you sell your home, we are going to be there for you all through the way.

Selling your property might be a dreadful thought, especially if you’re attached to it. Pack what you need and give us a call. We’ll take care of the rest.

Do you owe more on your home than it is worth? Have you started hearing the term “upside down mortgage” or “underwater mortgage” looming around?

Upside-Down in My Mortgage Keller Home Solutions

If you’re not sure what upside down in your mortgage means, simply put, it means that you owe more on your home than it is worth. This is also known as having negative equity.

The term alone can make you feel like your world has been turned upside down, but it hasn’t. First things first, determine if you actually are upside down in your mortgage.

How to Determine if You’re Upside Down in Your Mortgage

  1. Refer to your mortgage statement to determine how much is still owed on your mortgage loan. If you don’t have a statement available, reach out to the loan originator for a copy of your most recent statement.
  2. Hire an appraiser for a home valuation or refer to a licensed Realtor to obtain the current market value of your home. An appraiser will charge a fee to do a full assessment whereas a Realtor can give you market value for free. In other words, they will compare your home to homes in your area that have sold.
  3. Once you’ve received those numbers, determine if the amount you owe is less than the home appraisal or valuation amount. If the amount you owe is higher than the value of your home, you are upside-down in your mortgage.

What Are Your Options in an Upside Down Mortgage?

If you are facing an upside-down mortgage situation, you are not alone. Millions of Americans have faced the same situation and made it out alive.

Are you thinking about walking away?

Will selling your property be to your advantage?

Is refinancing a viable avenue to explore?

Are you able to stay put?

There’s one thing about real estate. It is an ever-changing market that could eventually turn around in your favor. It’s unpredictable to say the least but there are so many variables to consider when deciding what is best for your situation. A professional can go over your options and help devise a plan of action. Again, you’re not alone.

If you are feeling overwhelmed and looking for solutions to your upside down mortgage, Keller Home Solutions can help. We will help you determine the best course of action for your specific situation. If you choose to walk away, we can help with that too.

You won’t have to worry about making repairs, showings are not required, and there are no hefty agent commissions. Just CASH, in your hand in as little as seven days or whatever time frame you prefer. No one has to know what you are going through but you and your agent.

Finding an upside-down mortgage solution is what we do. When it comes time to answer those hard questions, we’re here to help.

Do You Own a Burdensome Abandoned Property or Vacant Rental Property?

If you own an abandoned or vacant property in Central Texas, you understand what a real financial drain it can be.

Is it an eyesore? Public safety hazard? Crime magnet?

While there are many reasons to sell property, there are compelling financial reasons to sell a vacant or abandoned property, especially if it’s a rental property. Vacant rentals can lead to negative income quickly, and, although they’re more challenging to quantify than dollars, this issue comes with powerful psychological side effects as well.

Abandoned properties perpetuate neighborhood fragmentation and often impact neighborhood property values.

Have you thought about selling your abandoned or vacant property but aren’t sure where to turn? Perhaps you dread the thought of repairing or improving the property. Or, maybe you simply can’t afford expensive real estate agent commissions. Whatever the case, we’re here to help.

At Keller Home Solutions, we specialize in solutions–it’s in our name, and we stand by it.

Because we understand the complexities of owning distressed and vacant properties, we also believe in coming to the table with a real, simple solution: a cash offer for your abandoned or vacant property.

You don’t have to get city permits. You don’t have to hire a crew to haul away or clean. You don’t have to pay hefty REALTOR® commissions, and you don’t have to suffer through a long escrow.

We close fast, and you can have your money in hand in as few as seven days, or whatever timeframe works best for you.

Are you ready to get rid of your abandoned or vacant property? We have years of experience, and we’re here to help. Get your CASH offer–call (512) 518-1923 or fill out this form today.

Have You Received a Notice of Default on Your Central Texas Home?

Have you received a Notice of Default on your Central Texas home and aren’t sure where to turn? At Keller Home Solutions, we work to provide insight and assistance to Texas homeowners who are facing financial challenges, including those related to foreclosure: Notice of Default, Notice of Sale, and Foreclosure Sale.

Avoid foreclosure prevent foreclosure notice of default austin texas Keller Home Solutions

When can a lender start foreclosure?

In most cases, you must be 120 days delinquent before any foreclosure activity begins. While it’s uncommon, smaller lenders and community banks can start foreclosure even if you are only one day past due. It’s important to note that the lender is only required to send you two notices before a foreclosure sale.

In most cases, foreclosure in Texas involves three steps, and the Notice of Default is the first in that process.

What is the Notice of Default?

The Notice of Default is a demand letter from your mortgage lender or servicer that is required by law. It notifies you that you have 20 days to “cure” your defaulted mortgage loan (pay the amount owed in full). Occasionally, this timeframe is increased to 30 days, and this is found mostly with FHA, VA, and home equity loans).

How can I prevent a foreclosure from happening to me and my family?

Believe it or not, you do have options. If you want to remain in your home, talk with your mortgage lender about a structured repayment plan, a temporary forbearance, or a loan modification. However, those aren’t your only options.

If you’d rather not go through the fuss and frustration of haggling with your mortgage lender, we’ve helped many homeowners avoid the foreclosure process completely. At Keller Home Solutions, we specialize in helping individuals get “back on their feet” by making a fair all-cash offer on their home.

A fair, all-cash offer from Keller Home Solutions empowers you to move on to your next chapter in life–to start fresh, and it takes the hassle and uncertainty out of selling your home. There are NO fees associated with our fair cash offer, and you can also avoid hefty REALTOR® commissions, costly property updates and repairs, and inconvenient showings that accompany a traditional home sale.

If you’re ready to receive an equitable, all-cash offer on your home today, click here to get started. Or, if you need immediate assistance, call us at (512) 518-1923.

North Austin and Cedar Park – Hot Real Estate Market in Austin

Posted by Keller Home Solutions in Real Estate Investing | 0 comments

There are two areas of Austin that we are keeping an eye on:  North Austin and Cedar Park.

North Austin

…. continues to boom! Apple made North Austin their Operations headquarters right around 2010 and brought more than 6,200 jobs to the area, it has been said that home prices have since doubled in the area.  In December 2018, Apple made a surprise announcement that it would be building a brand new $1B campus expansionjust one mile away from the current campus.  It is expected to bring another 5,000 jobs by 2023 and can house up to 15,000 new people in the years to come.  Our favorite neighborhood in North Austine resides just one mile directly south of the campus, Milwood.  Milwood is an attractive place to live because it’s still city living with all the great benefits of the suburbs.  Quiet mature trees, parks, quick access to major highways like I-35, 183 and Mopac and AWESOME AISD schools.

Cedar Park

…the coming of the “next Domain”.  North Austinites boasts that they no longer need the downtown vibe with the Domain. But the housing prices around the Domain area are quickly squeezing families to look further north for affordable housing.  Cedar Park is easily the number one choice for families looking for affordable homes and even more attractive for some with the big announcement in March 2019 of a $1.5B restaurant and shopping development planned for 2020 named Indigo Ridge. We are personally very excited about this one because it is only 2 miles from where we purchased our primary home 5 years ago.  The hot neighborhoods to look out for include:  Vista Ridge, Preserve at Stone Oak, Parkside at Mayfield Ranch, Trails of Shady Oak, Highlands of Mayfield Ranch, Brush Creek and Sendero Springs.  Local residents here are concerned about the increased traffic but there is no doubt it will bring pressure to home prices in the future. Oh and by the way, if you are looking in these neighborhoods because you work for Apple, it’s only 23 mins to the campus without traffic (with traffic, around 32 mins).

 

Austin Zip Codes to Invest In

If you’re a real estate investor or a home buyer looking for appreciation, the zip codes you might want to keep your eye on in North Austin are:  78727 (directly in the Apple zip), 78729 (very close to Apple), 78728, 78681, 78717, 78613, 78681, 78726, 78750, 78759, 78664, 78665 and some parts of 78726 (Parkside at Mayfield Ranch)

 

 

Five reasons to sell your home for cash instead of going into foreclosure

Posted by Keller Home Solutions in Avoiding Foreclosure | 0 comments

Are you on the brink of foreclosure, and trying to decide what to do? You can stop foreclosure by selling your home. Here are a few reasons why a cash sale is a good decision.

  1. It protects your credit

This is the most important reason to avoid foreclosure. Going into foreclosure puts a black mark on your credit, and it will stay there for seven years. This will severely impact your ability to get a loan, or even rent an apartment. And, when you are finally eligible to qualify for a loan again, you will find that you’ll be put under much stricter requirements.  

As long as you don’t have late mortgage payments (60 days or longer) on your credit report, if you sell your home, according to Fannie Mae guidelines, you should be eligible secure a loan to buy another home immediately.

  1. You’ll save money

The average legal cost to go through a foreclosure is around $7,500, according to the U.S. Congress Joint Economic Committee.

If you go into foreclosure and the bank sells your home, it might not be enough to cover the balance you owe. The bank could come back to you with a deficiency judgment, which means you are still responsible for the remaining balance on your mortgage, even though you no longer own the house.

Let’s not forget taxes. After foreclosure, you’ll still owe income taxes on any forgiven mortgage loan balance.

Ideally, when you sell your home for cash, you’ll be able to cover the full balance of what you owe on your mortgage and move on without fear of any further legal backlash.

At Keller Home Solutions, we buy homes “as is”. This means you won’t have to worry about spending any funds on repairs or upgrades for your home, as you might have to do with a traditional listed sale.

  1. Less stress

Foreclosure proceedings can be stressful. The worries about the serious hit to your credit, the demand letters piling up in your mailbox and the confusing legal process, as well as the negative stain of foreclosure can be a lot to endure. Sadly, you might also become a target of scams from opportunists trying to take advantage of your situation.

When you sell your home with Keller Home Solutions, we’ll buy your home for cash. This means that there will be no need to secure financing with banks, which involves lots of time and uncertainty. When a buyer applies for a loan, they are on the bank’s timeline, not yours. It can take weeks to close, rather than just days with a cash sale.

There is also more potential for road blocks with a sale involving financing. You might receive a low appraisal, or the sale could fall through if the buyer is not approved for a loan.

When you do a cash sale, you also avoid contingencies. These clauses allow the buyer back out of the sale if the contingencies are not met.

Opting for a cash sale with Keller Home Solutions is the swift, hassle-free way to sell your home and avoid foreclosure.

  1. Control your own destiny

Selling your home on your own terms versus being at the mercy of the bank is empowering. The feelings of shame and failure during a foreclosure can be demoralizing to you and your family. When you decide to sell your home yourself, you are taking control of your situation and moving on with your life — this is no small thing.

Take the opportunity to get closure and move on from this chapter and make a fresh, positive change in your life.

  1. Benefits for your neighbors

When neighborhoods are full of vacant, foreclosed homes, the property values drop. Selling your home can help to preserve the property values of your neighborhood, to keep the area desirable for prospective buyers.
