Government Suspends Waiting Period For Home "Flippers"!

by Alan Daniels

Homes in Colorado Springs | Investing in Real Estate

The Bush administration has temporarily suspended a rule that imposes a 90 day waiting period before government backed loans can be provided on foreclosure homes and other distressed properties.  This rule has been around for about 5 years,  and was put in place to deter property flipping schemes, where buyers are overcharged for foreclosures or other distressed properties.  The rule is being temporarily suspended to expedite the sale of foreclosures on the market and cut the supply of properties.

Beazer Homes is pulling out of Colorado!

by Alan Daniels
That's right, Beazer Homes is pulling out of Colorado! They were the eighth largest new home builder in the nation when they moved into the Colorado market in 2001. They have fallen on some tough times with a full investigation on mortgage fraud and over extending into different areas. Their stocks have dropped by 80 percent to less than $7.00 a share. Beazer Homes has said that they will pay all of their bills and honor all warranty obligations in the area. Keep in mind that there is no guarantee if they are not around in the future though. This is yet another reason on why an experienced Realtor can help advise you on New Home builders in Colorado Springs. A seasoned real estate agent has experience with all of the builders in town and usually gets a jump on issues like this. You can still find their Colorado Springs new homes in Claremont Ranch, Lowell, Soaring Eagles, Sweetwater Ridge, The Gables, and Wolf Ranch. There could be some good deals to come in order for them to move out quickly. Get with a Realtor to see if this would be the right move to meet your needs.
