New Home Building up in 2016!

by Alan Daniels

Listing inventory is extremely low and will continue to be in 2016 which is why Colorado Springs home builders will push to build the most new homes annually since 2006.  How will this effect your plans?

Home Sellers - This will create additional inventory but with the extreme lack of inventory it should not rain on your parade in 2016.  It will be interesting to track the effects of home builder inventory over the next 5 years though.  If you have a home in a new home community you will need a good Colorado Springs Realtor to come up with effective marketing techniques to compete with new homes.

Home Buyers - Additional inventory is great news for you!  The more the better they say and the same holds true when trying to find your dream home.  Make sure you are working with a Realtor who has access to every resale property and new home option.  When looking at new homes your Real Estate Agent should be able to show you the pluses and minuses whether buying a new home or resale.

Mortgage Requirements Eased!

by Alan Daniels

Mortgage requirements have eased while many potential home buyers believe they can't qualify for a mortgage and don't even try.  The biggest confusion is what credit score is necessary to qualify for a home loan.  A recent survey reported that two-thirds of the respondents believe they need a very good credit score to buy a home with 45% thinking a "good credit score" is over 780.  The actual numbers show the required credit score is much lower and has been dropping over the last several months (according to Ellie Mae).
