Great Deal on HUD Home for sale in South Richland

Many people have asked us about the foreclosure at 229 Center Blvd in South Richland.  It’s a 4 bedroom, 2 bath, 2028 sq ft house in Willowbrook.  It’s been empty for quite some time, and has just become available for purchase through the HUD program for $182,000.  This is a fantastic deal for the neighborhood!

The home and yard need a little TLC.  Repairs are estimated to be $4202.00.  We’d be happy to take you inside if you’d like to see it.

HUD homes can be a great deal, but there are a few qualifications, and you need to be ready at short notice.  If you qualify, we can help you submit a bid.

  • Current bids are exclusively for owner occupant, nonprofit, or government agency bidders (bids open up to investors after 30 days).
  • Bidders must be pre-qualified.  This is a step beyond the typical pre-approval.  You can get a pre-qualification letter from your lender after they verify your employment, assets, income, credit reports, etc.
  • Obtain $1000 earnest money (must be Cashier Check or U.S. Postal Money Order).
  • Submit offer by April 29th, 11:59 p.m. CST.  We need all paperwork from you by the 28th.
  • Overbidding–if you’re using FHA financing, the loan amount cannot exceed the list price.  If you’re using a conventional loan or opt to pay the difference in cash, you may overbid the property (within your lender’s approval).
  • Loan info–eligible for FHA 203(k) loan.  Repair Escrow is $4202.00 (buyer’s responsibility to pay for repairs to the property).  The money is held in escrow until the the required repairs are completed (within 90 days).
  • At the end of the offer period,  HUD will generally accept the highest bid.

If you have questions about this house or any other properties, we’d be happy to answer them.   For loan questions, we’ll refer you to a loan officer who can answer your questions and get you started on pre-qualification.  If you aren’t interested in this property, but want to be ready to jump on a similar opportunity in the future, we’ll get you started–just give us a call!

 

 

 

Building vs. Buying — Pasco Impact Fee Affects Real Estate

 
Pasco has passed an impact fee for new construction that may affect real estate in the area’s fastest growing city.  The fee has been a subject of controversy for Pasco.  It provides much needed revenue for the Pasco School District, but may negatively affect business and construction.  Pasco grew from a population of 32,066 to 59,781 in just one decade!  Much of the growth is new construction on what was once farmland.  Elementary schools are overflowing and land has been purchased and set aside, but more revenue is needed to build the additional schools. 

Current farmland to become new housing development

The impact fee has been approved by the Pasco City Council and will go into effect on April 16, 2012.   The fee will be charged for all new building permits.  The charge will be $4,700 for a single-family home and $4,525 per unit for multifamily construction.  This fee is anticipated to supply only a small portion ($3.6 million) of the approximate funding needed ($80.8 million) for the school district. 

Future Elementary school at Sandifer/Rd 60

 How will this affect real estate in Pasco?  There are both pros and cons.  If builders are unable to absorb the impact fee, it will be passed on to the consumer through an increase in lot and/or house prices, subsequently driving up the overall price of new construction.  Pasco has traditionally had the most affordable building prices, but more consumers may opt to build in Richland, West Richland, or Kennewick as the price gap narrows.  New construction remains the greatest competitor to the sale of existing homes in Pasco–the fee does not affect existing homes, so it may result in a more competitive market and could increase existing home sales. 

If you’re interested in learning more about the impact fee, building, or buying a home, please give us a call.  And if you haven’t seen it yet, take a minute to check out this fabulous 5 bedroom home in the Casa del Sol neighborhood in Pasco at 4910 Bilbao Drive.

Selling Quickly in the Tri-Cities: 2 Months + 1 Day Start to Finish

Today we closed on our listing at 8914 W Falls Ave in Kennewick.  This home was under contract after only 33 days on the market, and closed today, 2 months + 1 day from start to finish.

How does a house sell so quickly in today’s real estate market?  There are a few reasons:  it was a 4 bedroom (+bonus) home with a daylight basement, it had been thoughtfully updated to add value, it was located in a nice neighborhood near Sunset View Elementary, and it was priced at market value, in an affordable price range under $200,000.

Our advertising efforts included marketing the home for sale through the MLS, a color print ad in The Real Estate Book, promotion on our website, Facebook page, & Twitter, placing flyers and a QR Code for smartphones on the yard sign, and ensuring it was accessible on real estate websites including Realtor.com, Zillow, & Trulia.  These combined efforts attracted 16 separate showings and an offer that closed today, just months + 1 day after it all began!

If you’re interested in selling your house with minimum hassle and lower commission rates, contact us and we’ll let you know how we can help.
