If you’ve been waiting to refinance because there are rooms in your home you’d rather an appraiser not see, then you have 5 business days left.

Until Oct 20, 2012, you may be able to use an exterior-only appraisal for your home– this saves you money, time, and is simpler.

Here’s the link to the Fannie Mae publication for those of you who prefer to read all the details: https://www.efanniemae.com/sf/guides/duguides/pdf/current/rndodu90.pdf

So if you’d like to save more money on a refinance and avoid and issues on the condition of your home, please contact me for a free personalized refinance report.

As always, I’m here to help.

The 2012 Parade of Homes just wrapped up this last weekend, and there were some amazing homes.

I’ll be posting some pictures of some of the standout homes. Which houses were your favorites?

Edmond High Schools Among the top in the State

6 08 2012

Edmond’s three high schools– North, Memorial, and Santa Fe– were named among the top in the state.

North High School was rated the 3rd best public school in OK, and awarded a gold medal.
Memorial High School was rated the 5th best, and Santa Fe was rated the 10th best in the state. Both received a silver medal from US News and World Report.

For the press release and for more info, click HERE.

The 2012 U.S. News Best High Schools report includes school-specific data on enrollment, location, ethnicity, school type, state assessment proficiency tests and Advanced Placement® tests. Using the data, the schools were then given a college readiness index score.
“We are elated that all three of our high schools ranked among the top 10 best schools in Oklahoma,” said Executive Director of Secondary Education Jason Brown. “I believe that a detailed analysis of the schools on the list will reveal that we are the best district in the state at educating our students.”

I hope you’re excited for school to start next week. Let’s make it a great year.

Oklahoma named the best housing market again

11 01 2012

 

 

you glad you live in Oklahoma?

US News and World Report recently named Tulsa and Oklahoma City as their #1 and #2 Best Housing Markets.  Click here for the full article or read the important excerps below.

“Oklahoma City is a poster child, a touchstone that we keep going back to throughout the housing recession for markets that have bucked the trend,” says Stan Humphries, chief economist at real estate website Zillow. “Because it did not participate in the housing run-up is why it’s held its value so well in the recession, because it didn’t get overpriced.”

“Tulsa, Oklahoma City, and Madison are seeing organic demand in the market, so it’s really dependent on their own economic vitality,” Humphries says.





Oklahoma City leading the US out of recession

9 01 2012

High fives all around!  You’ve done it again, Oklahoma!

US News and World Report named Oklahoma City and Tulsa the #1 and #3 cities in the US that are leading the nation out of the recession.  What does this mean?  It means we’ve got JOBS, baby!  It means we have affordable houses.  It means we have a thriving local economy.  It means that our thriving local economy provides money to improve our city and create more jobs.

It means that you need to move here. 

Here’s the article for those of you who like to see who we beat.  And please contact me when you’re ready to see if the grass really is greener in the Heartland.

Planning the route to your vacation

6 01 2012

Imagine you’re driving to your beach vacation and you could take a route that would get you to the same destination, but in half the time with only 1/3 of the costs, giving you an extra week of time on the beach.  The catch is you’d have to give up two McDonald’s meals on the trip to enjoy an extra week in paradise.  Which route would you choose?

Discover the freedom of a 15 year mortgage, but more importantly, experience the fun of the extended vacation afterwards.

The average person on a 15 year mortgage pays it off in 7-9 years.  Where will you be in 7 years?

Please call me if you’d prefer to be on the beach.
